Great Tv; do your homework first though!
Posted by: Christopher from: on
I have to start by saying I appreciate Best Buy being one of the few merchants that still hires workers who can tell you about the products they sell. Awesome!
I replaced a 7 year old 47''LG, 1080p LCD TV with this new UHD model mainly for two reasons: To have better connectivity to the web without using roku or apple player and for the UHD clarity. I will start there.
The UHD picture is absolutely, stunningly gorgeous. It's vivid, sharp detail and rich colors are intoxicating. In fact, the UHD content is so enamoring that I re-watched the entire last season of 'Orange' because most content out there is not shot in UHD. I mean it, the picture quality is undeniably better on this tv than the one I replaced which gives it high marks there.
As for the internet connectivity, which makes it 'smart', I am equally pleased. To be fair, it's the usual culprit of apps like Hulu, Netflix, Youtube, and the like, but to get to them in just a click or two is so awesome. As well, toggling back and forth between those apps and live TV is wonderfully seamless so you never have to worry with commercials. Best part is it keeps you at the point in whatever program/app you were in. My daughter loves watching her cartoons on this TV as the colors always seems to transfix her for the time she's tuned in(she's one) We have it in a medium sized family room that is attached to a dining area and the sound seems to envelop the space nicely. This TV is also very slim, about half the thickness of the one it replaced so it would likely wall-mount very nicely and be semi flush with the wall. We have it on a stand currently.
So my biggest gripe -and this is why I said do your homework - is the number of input ports. The tv has two or three HDMI ports but only one set of connectors for other AV equipment. This means if you have say, a dvr, dvd, blue-ray, gaming console and any other AV equipment that isn't HDMI, you can only use them one at a time. It doesn't seem a big deal but having to get up and change the ports from DVR to Blue Ray or Blue Ray to PS4 every single time gets old really, really fast. With how careless kids sometimes are, I shudder to think of the parent whose child is back there tinkering with the tv on a semi-daily basis.
There really aren't very many other drawbacks, for one I would have hoped for a traditional base as opposed to the two legs the tv sits on. Haven't had a tipping problem yet but it's always in the back of my mind. Also, you should really spend 15-30 minutes in the store truly looking at the TV. The color is so rich that it can at times seem artificial until you've gotten used to it. My wife thought she hated it at first. Other than that, my family has been pleased as punch with this new TV and I believe most people would be too. However, if you know you will be attaching many other AV devices then be sure that this TV will serve you as dutifully as you need it to.

This is a great TV.

I read many reviews online and was a little hesitant at first but just went for it since you cant really tell how this TV will perform until you get it in your home. After calibrating the TV I think the picture is pretty incredible comparing to my old 46" Sharp Aquos. 4K UHD content from Netflix and YouTube look amazing. BluRay, HD Plex (from Apple TV) movies look incredible. Decent HD cable signals look great. Personally, nothing against 4K UHD, but its difficult to tell the quality difference of 4K UHD and a Blu Ray movie when sitting at the ideal viewing distance from a 55" TV. If you are standing a foot away from the screen though, 4K content is absolutely gorgeous. The same is true if you were standing 5 feet away from a smart phone with/without a retina screen. Now hold that same phone a foot away from your face... yes the text is more clear. Just use some common sense here.
I will say the feeds at stores are a bit dull and its impossible to tell differences when the TVs viewing angle in stores aren't realistic, settings are super blown out and you are surrounded by florescent lighting.
For the price, take this TV home, set it up, run it through some basic calibration, turn off all the fancy picture settings (that most times make your picture worse), turn the backlight down when viewing in complete darkness and enjoy a stunning picture. Take the negative reviews with a grain of salt. These people are lazy, rely on default settings, putting a lamp in front of the TV and wondering why there is refelction or are thinking they should be getting the same quality as a $9,000 OLED display.

Very happy with my 4k 55" LG
Posted by: Rich from: on
I came home from 2 weeks of training to find my old TV had died. I was not thrilled to spend the type of money I saw on the advertisments. My girlfriend recommended Best Buy. She stated that your company had very consumer friendly financing. The other problem I had was I didn't understand the new TVs. LED, LCD, 4K, OLED, it was bewildering. I went in on a weekday figuring a Sales Rep could spare more time with me during a less busy period. No worries, Best Buy had plenty of help around to assist customers. I met Matt at the Mira Mesa store and I had a shopping list of questions. I gave him the amount I wanted to spend and he patiently explained all the different TVs. He showed me a comparison between a 1080 and 4K. I picked the 55" 4K LG. I also bought a sound bar. I went back later and purchased a Blu Ray player. I'm amazed at the quality and clarity of the picture and sound bar added a dimension in sound to action movies that really enhances the experience. I qualified for 24 month interest free financing. 5 stars for my total experience with Best Buy.

Absolutely amazing and stunning picture
Posted by: johny from: on
Picture on this tv is so crisp and so clear it wants to suck you in and dont let you leave your seat. Im not big on tv's but buying this tv i just want to watch whatever is on because of the amazing picture. The design and thin frame look on this unit look very stylish and sleek.
Sound is also good on this tv. Setup is super easy and it takes like 3-5 minutes. it has many apps but i have not explored smart part of this tv yet . its got full web browser and once you connect wireless(usb) mouse to it surfing and browsing internet appears to be very easy . I really cant see how much or what more can you get buy paying 500 , thousand or more for those more expensive units.
Again , i dont know if its because its 4k tv but picture on this tv is simply amazing !!

very good tv; bought on sale $200 less than now!
Posted by: newtreeno from: on
the tv has an excellent picture over the entire screen; bright, life-like colors; even older tv programs and movies look amazingly sharp with the "upsample" feature; netflix and youtube work well though typing web addresses is tedious with the remote (but that would be the same with any tv); have not tried the "playstore" yet, or installed any games; just using as a television\netflix viewer
easy assembly (just screwing on the sturdy, stable "feet"); the sound is good in a medium room at around 15 out of 100, sometimes 25 or 30 is needed for quiet scenes or when the a\c is making noise (using the included tv speakers; no soundbar)
setup was easy but watch out if your wireless router uses "MAC filter" security, remember that you will need to add the MAC of the TV in your settings or the router will not allow it on your LAN (took me a while to figure that one out '__' )
I have had the tv for about 1 month and am very satisfied; amazing 55" for the price (got it for $700 on sale!)

This review reflects my horrible experiences that I had with lg customer service - just thought you might like to know. Apparently I bought a suicidal tv from LG. I have the 2015 version of this tv that just decided to quit working. LG set me up with a certified repair tech who just happened to be 1.5-2.0 hrs from where I live (a factor that weighs in to my nightmare with customer service [CS] - because he stated that it really was not worth to him to drive that far to repair 1 tv). I told him what the symptoms were, he asked for some pix and without ever coming to my home stated that the tv was damaged beyond repair and that he was going to tell LG that the screen had physical damage! There is not even a hint of a scratch anywhere on my tv - and, yes, it is under warranty until 12/28. LG took him at his word and told me that they would NOT be covering my tv. They did offer up at that time several other certified techs much closer to my home, but that it would be at my expense to have anything done to my tv. I talked to 4 supervisors and none of them would listen to reason - just kept referring back to a tech's unreliable assessment to keep from honoring the warranty. I had had a great deal of respect for the LG brand until this incident which has cost me $900 tv. We had all our family over for Thanksgiving and I asked my two grown sons to remove the useless tv from the room (I was unable due to 2 recent major knee surgeries). Both of my sons concurred that they could not find a single scratch on it - they both stated that issues like mine are why they do not buy LG products. I am going to tell all who will listen about what has happened to me ... including the members of the church where I serve.
Issue with tv? As I was hooking a new cable box to my A/V system, the person from the cable company sent an activate signal. The picture came on, the listings began to populate and then the tv slowly started to phase out from a picture to a bunch of lines that looked like they had been drawn with a crayon! Screen went black ... tv is dead. One supervisor tried to tell me that it was an internal crack on the screen - but I wanted her to explain how that could happen without any physical damage to the tv?? I had been having audio trouble with my system (hence, the new cable box - turned out not to be the problem) - the tech did tell me that a new motherboard for the tv would have corrected my audio issues. Whatever counclusion you may draw from my review - please note that this was a very convenient way for LG NOT to honor the warranty on my tv. Huge loss for me at a very bad time in my life. Hope this hasn't/doesn't happen(ed) to you.I'm

This TV is the best 4K I have ever seen in this price range. The blacks are unreal as well as the colors from the HDR technology which is usually only in higher end TVS....GREAT!!!!

Best 4k HDR TV you can buy for the price.
Posted by: Dannyar10 from: on
For the price and features($599 at time of this review) it cant be beat. Full 4k with HDR10 support as well as the wonderful Web OS 3.0. Picture looks great out of the box but even better with some adjustments which can be found online at most calibration sites. Crazy that just a year ago a TV with these features would cost you $1,500. Xbox one and ps4 games look great upscaled to 4k, and gaming mode on the tv makes colors and overall quality pop. Fully recommend buying this ASAP before it goes back to its regular price of $799.

Best UHD 4K TV hands down
Posted by: Freddy from: on
Very impressed as soon as it was setup in the living room. Only complaint is wish it had one more HDMI & Optical Cable port. In short, this was an absolute best purchase I've made.

4K and HDR
Posted by: Beefinn101 from: Farmington Hills Mi on
This TV is a great value and it has all the latest features such as 4K and HDR. Best Buy website doesn't mention that this TV has high dynamic range but in fact it's on the box & this HDR tv gives a beautiful picture when calibrated properly.
