the picture quality is just excellent, but upscaling sd contain into HD or uHD need more improvements, you must have minimum hd channels to enjoying the picture quality, the full array dimming is not that much effective as advertise, overall good picture quality.
Service by LG was not a respectable if we consider it as a big brand. If this is not corrected then LG will loose trust.
I have 55SM 8100 model which is no doubt one of the best TV and far better than samsung or sony of the same range
The nano led panels of LG have extremely short life. Within 2 yrs led's will start dying. I bought LG tv with nano led's. See the attached pic. There are black spots on the screen everywhere. Customer care charge more than a lakh as they replace whole led panel. Save your precious money and ditch LG. Their nabo technology have extremely small shelf life. The tv die in 2 yrs
From where should I start? Specifications : LG49SK8500 4K HDR Display 4K Active HDR 40 Watts Speakers Dolby Atmos Netflix Recommended TV Full Array Dimming @lpha 7 intelligent processor Ok, one word that can define this is "Beautiful" Let me elloborate. If you are in the market for probably the best 4K IPS TV that supports all the latest and greatest from Dolby which includes Dolby Vision, HDR 10, HLG at the same time provides great sound quality Dolby ATMOS, True HD 7.1, DTS HD, Dolby Digital, slimmest design possible, Smoothest of the smooth OS Web OS 4.0, AI enabled Magic remote,just think no where and put all your money in this stunning masterpiece. "Picture Quality" 1 let's start from basics, if you are upgrading from 32" inch LCDLED, you will be blown away with the stunning picture clarity this TV offers. Everything looks stunning, Dynamic Contrast, Pitch black colors will talk in detail. The TV has the ability to catch smallest of the small detail in the picture and can create stunning visuals that is so pleasing to eyes. Play any YouTube video in 720P or 1080P it will look super sharp Play any 4K UHD content and you can not take eyes of this TV Play any 4K HDR content includes Dolby Vision and you will be blown away by its superior picture quality. It even has excellent ability to convert 480p content of your set top box and upscaling it on to a 4K display. HD channels of your set top box will look amazing on this. As it's a 120 HZ display everything looks super smooth. 1080p60 videos looks super crisp, it feels they are performing just in front of us. Talk about connectivity and you have plenty options to choose from: 4 HDMI 3 of them supports 4K and 1 is for HDMI ARC and 3 USB One of them is USB 3.0, You also have Optical Audio Output to play around. Comes with Dual WIFI 2.4 & 5.0 GHZ & Bluetooth 4.2 onboard Magic Remote This is one of the smartest remotes a TV can get. Kudos to LG for great creativity. It works just like a Charm. It has some great over 800 offline commands that you can do and this magic remote will do it for you. Sound I would say it will be average to best. If you have a small room, just like mine, you will be pretty much satisfied with its performance. It says it has Dolby ATMOS built in, which if you are playing supporting content can allow you to experience it, but don't expect some great results. It has 40 watts speakers which includes woofer and they do a decent job. As I said, to experience it's breathtaking picture quality, you should definitely look for a great sound bar or 5.1 or Dolby atmos enabled home theater. Worth Mentioning that it's a Netflix Recommended TV, as you will be getting great movie watching experience on this TV, many Netflix shows and movies now a days are in Dolby Vision + Atmos formats, and would definitely recommend to try. Some more best things: 1 Excellent RAM Management Thanks to @lpha 7 intelligent processor, it keeps all the applications open while you are surfing arround different applications. Surf between applications is breeze. 2 Superior Boot up time : It can start within just seconds compared to Android TV where it takes forever to load as it keeps the TV on stand by mode when you switch it off 3 Plethora of Picture Options to choose from: Depending on the content, you can enjoy the preset modes while some of them are really beautiful as they are presets by Technicolor. 4 Support for Trumotion 5 Full array Dimming LG has been touting about this and its the differentiator between their SK8000 and SK8500 series 6 Couldn't talk more about gaming as I haven't experienced it yet but is said to be best panel for enjoying 4K HDR games as it has very minimal input lag. Negatives: Of course this TV has its own cons: Full array Dimming is not that effective as it is not able to fully create Deep blacks in the brightest area of the display especially when you are in a very dark environment, like in the night with all your room lights off 2 It creates Blooming effect whenever you are hovering the curser on TV, not visible during day time, but will be certainly visible during night time. 3 There are chances of light bleeding, as IPS panels are prone to bleeding. I would suggest to keep the backlight and brightness down to 50 4 This TV can certainly not be recommended to watch in dark night as you will see Grey black combined display even if Full Array Dimming set to maximum. It's certainly not able to achieve the similar standard as what Sony's model can achieve. The blacks look absolutely stunning during day time. If you are really worried about Clouding, Screen Bleeding then you should definitely upgrade to OLED, but if you are in for IPS display, this is the Best thing Money can buy in TV department. Its just one level below the OLED But certainly not OLED. I got it for 88k and it's 2018 model. I will update my experience as I start to explore more and will keep this thread to share more about this TV
Hi ! A great experience on it's first appearance. The TV was ordered on 19/1/2019 during the Repulbic Day Sale, and flipkart/ekart delivered it to me on 21/1/2019. And today, i.e., on 22/1/2019, a service engineer installed the TV at my residence. Excellent services by all the departments of Flipkart. Thanks. It's my 2nd LG 4K Smart LED TV, purchased again from Flipkart. Picture quality, being Super UHD, is outstanding. Sound quality is very good, and is far better than that of my previous one, i.e., LG 43" 4K Smart TV (43UJ632T), purchased on 26/6/2018. The TV runs smooth with Amazon Prime & Youtube through mobile hotspot. 4K video files available with Youtube reveals the true excellence of LG fragrances. I've purchased the TV for Rs.84,999/- (excluding discount Rs.1,750/- given by SBI Card) with no cost EMI. Based on a few hours experience with this new LG 49" Super UHD (4K) LED Smart TV 2018 Edition (49SK8500PTA), I am giving this review for all future buyers. It's a real 5-Star product from the house of LG. 28/1/2019 (after 7 days) : The TV is doing excellent with it's crystal clear images & beautiful sound quality. Just love it ...
HONEST REVIEW After a lot of research, I chose this product which turns out to be an excellent deal. Way better than usual 4K TVs and just below costlier OLED TVs. Viewing experience is awesome. If you give quality input, it reproduces excellent results. Dolby vision content is rare but HDR viewing is pleasure. If you add a good set top box your overall viewing experience will be pleasure. Blacks and whites are deeper. Adjust picture settings according to your ambience. Magic remote is true to its name, truly one of kind. This TV is for those who are looking for a smart 4K tv with best OS experience. I normally heard good about Flipkart delivery promptness but in my case turned out to be bad.
received it on 27/01/2019 overall performance looks great everything is perfect. it will update the more depth review soon.
I bought this tv yesterday from local store at rs 130000 but the quality is best that other oled tv
