    Great Starter 4k HDTV!

    I did a lot of research before purchasing a TV and even with all that research ended up buying the wrong TV from Sams Club that was supposedly a SHARP that turned out to be a knock off HiSense TV and in the end I ended up returning to Sams Club in anger. So just a heads up on things like that. Do your research because when it comes to TVs you never know what is under the hood. And I started this review with this fact to help other consumers avoid that mistake and to point out that it was a much better buying experience when purchasing my TV through Best Buy. After that I decided to purchase this TV from Best Buy, I noticed an immediate difference between this TV and the SHARP TV I returned both in picture quality and with the smart TV abilities on it. The WEBOS smart TV software built into the TV will do well for most, but coming from an apple TV user I found the WebOS interface some what limiting. As an example with Apple TV I am able to cast anything form my iphone to the TV. But in WebOs your are limited to whatever is in your photos and videos on your phone. There is also a lack of many of the apps I was used to having access to on my Apple TV that I would have liked to see on this smart TV like CW as an example. And for a smart TV the WebOS system is not bad but it's no Apple TV and the only reason I am using the WebOs vs my Apple TV is that I have the older Apple TV that is not 4K. And so to enjoy 4k and HD quality content through streaming providers like Netflix I have to use the Netflix app included in the TV's smart TV app line up until I can fork over money for an Apple TV 4k. It is also notable to mention that PLEX is an available app on this TV which I use a lot. And was presently surprised to see that it detected my HomeRun device that streams my digital antenna signals thought my home network and streams those free antenna channels with much more reliability than going through the PLEX app like I used to with the Apple TV. I was also able to connect the TV to my Amazon Echo device and can now instruct Alexa verbally to turn my tv off among other commands which I am finding useful. The remote is okay, and for this model does not come with the "Magic Remote" that allows you to use a pointer and scroll wheel to navigate around with your TV. However, I did find that the LG Remote app for your smartphone does include this feature but is not as cool as having the "Magic remote" that higher end models provide. I also looked into if I could upgrade to the better remote and it os not possible with this model to do so. As for the actual picture and sound quality, I found so many reviews about deeper blacks and refresh rates and all of that. And in most cases more is better, but when I have this TV hung on my wall and am watching 4k content or anything for that matter it is amazing looking and am very satisfied with what I see. The TV also has a few preset picture settings that you can adjust and you can even adjust the motion settings to help reduce that awful "Soap Opera Effect" that I do not like and for this TV it is not that noticeable, especially after making some custom tweaks to some of the preset picture settings. The TV also has a decent wide viewing angle. I can not comment on the sound much since I pass my audio to a soundbar, but at least there is an ARC output on the TV that I was able to connect to my ARC compatible soundbar which allows me to seamlessly control the soundbar through my TV. However, I did notice some audio sync issues, especially on Netflix but was able to adjust the audio sync in the TV audio configuration. So if your looking for a decent and affordable large 4k HDTV, in my opinion you can not go wrong with this one!

    Cyber Monday Deal

    I really love this TV. So glad I broke down and bought it on cyber weekend. Vast improvement from my last setup (40 inch 3D Samsung). Gaming looks so good, was able to get everything adjusted just about perfect.sound is solid though I feel at some point I might try finding a way to hook in my stereo system to bump it up. Viewing angles seem good enough for group viewings. Had my friends over to watch Bladerunner on 4K Disc and it was wasy better than any time previous. The app system is alright, nothing too fancy. Most of the lg stores's availability is kind of lackluster aside from the big 3 (netflix, hulu, prime). Startup time is good and syncing consoles has been easy to get 4k signals out of them. 4k HDR content looks stunning on this screen. The leg supports could be better. I feel that when the set is brushed even a little theres a lot of sway going on that can make me anxious. Would have preferred an older weighted center base instead or stronger reinforced support legs. But for 400 it seems like a small gripe.

    Great Entry Level 4K

    This LG is a great entry level 4K TV for those on a budget. I was originally going to get the 4 series TCL Roku but saw really bad reviews. I found this TV along with the Samsung priced the same and decided to go with LG. This TV has three HDMI ports and several others that the Samsung didn't have. Some other reviewers said the the number 1 HDMI port went bad after a few days and I have to say that when I hooked it up I thought mine was damaged as well. However I unplugged and plugged back in and it has worked fine since. The picture is amazing even considering I don't have a 4K streaming device or 4K content. I don't use this TV with an antenna I only use streaming services and all come in so real to life its almost scary. I definitely would go in and turn off the energy saver setting and play around withh the picture settings. It did appear a little dark with the energy saver on, but once it's off and played with the other settings found the one that was perfect for my set up. Overall I would recommend this TV for those on a budget, if money is not an issue LG and Samsung have better 4K TV's.

    Great TV but can't get Netflix to work

    Honestly surprised by the sound on this TV! It's pretty great. However a sound bar will still always provide the better bass and sound so I switch between both. Great picture, no issues with picture quality from the side. The legs are CHEAP. They are flimsy. I wish there was another stand or base I could purchase because I have a crazy cat named Harley Quinn who likes to run around my TV when I am not home lol BUT so far, all is well! I really do love this TV and am happy I purchased it over a Samsung because my 32 inch LG from 6 years ago still works like new so fingers crossed this one does the same! ONLY annoyance is I now have to call customer care to figure out why the apps won't work. Netflix worked the first day but I never tried the other apps. Now none will connect and the TV says that it's not connected to the network even though it very much is and says it's connected lol PLEASE NOTE: The legs are very far apart. You need to make sure you have a TV stand that is essentially the same length as the TV.

    I’m really happy with this Black Friday purchase. I was deciding between this one and a 55” Samsung with similar pricing. I ultimately chose LG for the extra ports this model has. 3 HDMI ports, 2 USB, and several others that Samsung did not have. When I first turned on the tv I also thought the screen seemed dark (as another reviewer stated) but upon looking thru the settings menu realized that “backlight energy saver” was automatically turned on. I turned this off and the screen brightened considerably. The TV looks great from multiple angles within our living room. It’s also held up well against the strong natural light coming in through our patio doors nearby. My only complaint is the legs seem a little cheap. Plastic-y and the tv is still quite wobbly. I don’t think this is enough to knock it down an entire star.

    Best TV I have ever owned

    Ok, so to start you should know I’m old school when it comes to electronics. I hate anything. HE or the”new” technology, mostly because it never lasts. When our 10 yr old Samsung tv bit the dust I was so disappointed to have to buy a new Tv. Not only am I old school, but I am super cheap. So we went and first purchased a Hisense..again I’m cheap...and that TV was awful. So we returned it to Best Buy (easiest return I have ever had to do) and bought this tv because it was on sale (it wasn’t the week prior when we purchased the piece if crap) and the picture in the store was outstanding. I never thought I would like an UHD smart tv but this Tv is outstanding. The best picture I have seen, it looks like you could reach out and touch what your watching. You can see every grain of sand or blade of grass with out that “soap opera” effect. The sound is also fantastic. I can’t recommend this tv enough!!

    I decided to purchase this LG TV after carefully researching and reading all the negative remarks on several brands, and I'm glad I decided on this one. I've had the TV for one month and have not had any problems with it. It has great resolution, no WiFi issues, and the learning curve is minimal. I do have an issue with the older TV shows that do not broadcast in HD and causes loss of resolution and blurriness, but that is not due to the TV but the way the shows are broadcasted. All the newer shows and movies are crystal clear. My impression when I first saw the screen was WOW!! I feel as if the characters were right in my living room. I hope everything continues to work flawlessly. If it doesn't I'll be updating my review. One tip I give to anyone who buys LED TV's is to lower the brightness (backlight) to under 100. This is why many of these modern TV's burn out fast leaving you with a black screen and only sounds.

    Super Easy Setup

    I am super excited about my new tv. After setting up the stand legs logging into my Netflix and Hulu and other apps were so easy. The assisted voice guide is a bit annoying and fast, so I turned it off but I can see how it would be extremely useful for those who need it. It took me a couple of tries to log into my WiFi but after the 4th try it connected. The color is beautiful. Actually beautiful doesn’t cut it, it’s super gorgeous. The only trouble I had was the live tv option. I thought it would pick up and apply my Verizon Fios as cable under the live tv tab but it’s just registered as component #5 and AV which is super annoying but maybe it’s something I did wrong. Who knows... as long as it works. A+++ LG. I love my tv!

    WoW ! What A Difference 4K Makes

    It may seem weird but I purchased this LG 55" 4K UK6090PUA in February when it was on Sale and it has been sitting in my basement still in the box until yesterday. I bought it not because I needed a new TV but because I wanted the 4K experience and what a difference it is from my 55" Full HD TV. The first thing of course is how much more definition, color, bright, vibrant and clear everything is. Even the HD DVDs that I have look better. I hooked it up to my router directly with an ethernet cable and movies on demand look great. It has wifi built in but I didn't try it. Setup was easy with my Comcast remote and I connected a Vizio sound bar with a subwoofer and movies look and sound great. I have not needed any additional support but my experience with LG and BestBuy for any tech support in the past has been very good. This TV is light in weight but heavy on features. I would definitely recommend it.

    Bad buy

    Ok, this is a very honest review! Bought this tv on Sunday. Got it home and when I took the tv out of the box to lay it down to install the legs, I heard a rattling sound. The screen panel was not secured to the bezels and was flopping around inside. Next was the black border at the bottom of the screen. I could see the 2 far right light devices at the bottom bleeding through the bottom border. No matter what I did with settings it was still bleeding through. Another thing was that to use some if the features in this tv, I was required to give permission to privacy issues I am not willing to hand over to LG or anyone else. I also read that the hdmi ports go bad but didnt wait for that to hapen. No HBO app either and Im not buying an extra fire stick for that. This tv went back to Bestbuy and I will never buy another intrusive cheap tv like this again. Do not buy this tv!

    I bought this tv after a little research and I’m very happy I did. Not all 4K TVs advertised as 4K are legit. I found another tv similar to this one ( same manufacturer) for literally $1 less. Want to know what the extra dollar gave me? The ability to view at 120hz ( true 4K) as opposed to the standard 60hz most tv’s today come factory equipped with. This tv will even up convert to 120hz with compatible devices which equals to an unmatched picture quality. I never knew what I was missing when it came to picture quality until now. The factory speakers are good sounding. The enclosure is rigid and the added rigid frame around the screen definitely ensures fingers stay off the screen for those who wall mount and use a full motion wall mount system.

    Preface: i upgraded to this TV after having my last Sanyo tube TV for twenty years. This is my first experience with a “smart” TV and I could not be more impressed. The picture and sound are amazing. I love the ease of use and how fast we were able to connect to Comcast. This tv is perfect for a cord-cutter as well, with built in apps for Hulu, Netflix, sling, YouTube and Amazon. It also comes with a plethora of free internet channels. There is no shortage of things to watch, for sure. The picture and audio are great. I am blown away by the quality of this product, and for such a great price, too. If you buy this, you won’t regret it.

    I purchased this TV a week ago and it is a good TV for the price. It has a good viewing angle, sound, and the picture is good. If you don’t expect the performance of a $2,000.00 TV, you will be happy. This is just a TV and it will not solve all of your problems. I have an outdoor over the air antenna and this pulls in the same stations as my old TV. We use a Roku but they have the typical apps such as Netflix, Hulu and Sling. The other reviews are correct regarding turning off the energy saving mode to increase the brightness of the picture. It is very easy and is under the picture settings.

    Had an old 2008 Panasonic Plasma TV with the "hatchback". Lasted me for several years til it give in. Couldn't decide what tv to get. Heard and witnessed Samsung having beyond horrible customer service when it came to their tvs. Decided to go with an LG brand and so far its been a great tv! No issues so far. Loved that you can turn off the red light when the tv is off when you go through settings. Audio is pretty good. Haven't mounted it and the legs that can be attached seemed a bit flimsy but so far no problems and its a nice thin tv for its style. Haven't connectednm it to the wifi for the apps since I use my ps4 & firestuck to watch my shows. No regrets so far!

    Terrible picture

    Bought this tv with high expectations, returned it 3 days later after terrible results. As soon as the screen came on, I knew it wasn't good. I have a Sony 65" XBR900 in my main living room, so I decided to buy the 55" LG4K for my other living room to save a little money. It's 2019, I figured the picture can't be that bad, technology has come a long way. The menu to set up this tv has got to be the most confusing to use, there is no reason for this. I am pretty technically advanced, LG needs to go back to the drawing board on this issue. I went through every screen setting for 2 days to give it a chance to no avail. It looked like there was a soft white screen blurring the picture. Packed it up and returned it, and bought another Sony 65" XBR900. I guess the old saying is true, you get what you pay for.

    Great intro 4K tv

    The picture, sound, and depth of this tv are each phenomenal. After about 5 minutes of personal tweaking, 4K Netflix/PS4 Pro gaming/4K streaming were crystal clear. To our happy surprise, this TV was much louder than the loudest setting on our previous soundbar (cheapo depot). The interface is extremely simplistic and the quick tutorial more than suffices at setting up HDR and any other personal settings. The lack of the better remote was a little disappointing, but I use my IPhone as a remote anyways so it wasn’t a huge deal. Also, connecting to Alexa was rather difficult until I realized I was stifling myself. Overall, an excellent intro to the 4K world!

    This is my second LG TV, i upgraded to this one from the 43” I loved. It has a very user friendly interface and intuitive remote. Great picture. The only reason it didn’t get 5 stars was because it has this feature that doesn’t let me enable HDR on my PS4 because of some feature that has to be turned off on the PS4. It blocks all signal from the console so it was hard to change the setting on the PS4 because I couldn’t see a display on the TV. This is the same on all LG TV’s in this class and not a big deal, it is still 4K when using my PS4 Pro. Other than that, its great and the only TV in this class with a component input as well as 3 HDMI inputs which is nice because I have a PS2 (that I barely use) but its nice that I can still hook it up.

    Overall value of this TV is great. Picture is great, you can definitely find better pictures, but your gonna be paying $1000+. I'm extremely happy with the sound. This has been a sore spot for flat TV's since they came on the market. Speaker placement was the culprit. Seems LG has figured this one out though. My only real complaint is the "Quick Start" feature. It basically keeps the TV in sleep mode. Would be a great feature if it played nice with my Nvidia Shield. Seems the two couldn't communicate with "Quick Start" turned on making it impossible for the TV to detect the Shield. I was on the verge of returning the TV before I finally discovered the cause of the problem. Bottom line, for the price you can't go wrong with this TV.

    My personal pros & cons Pros - TV comes with lots of settings (Simple or Detailed) for customizing the picture and other aspects for your needs. - Blu tooth makes it so i can connect it wirelessly to my Blu tooth sound system - Tv supports more video file types through its usb ports than my previous 4k Vizio did - One of the cheapest prices for a name brand 55inch 4k HDR Tv Around. Cons - Legs only have one position to place them which is very wide - TV stand legs are somewhat unstable ( TV can easily wobble if pushed) - TV brightness appears low making some scenes appear too dark (adjusting picture brightness too high completely dulls the picture)

    This tv would be great if the brightness levels would stop changing. I use my computer, xbox, and cable all hooked to this tv. The problem is very noticeable when scrolling in a web browser. If you scroll past something dark the whole tv gets very dim. I thought it was my computer so I did the same in a web browser on the xbox. Same result. After hours of research it appears this is a common issue that LG denies even exists. I've spent hours adjusting every power setting and picture setting you can think of and nothing helps. Very annoying with it always getting dim and bright. Don't buy this junk.
