A Review of the LG Electronics 49UB8500 49-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV

 

LG's 4K TVs are some of the best and at times some of the priciest on the market for ultra HD home entertainment. This is where the LG 49UB8500 comes in as an excellent value alternative to its more expensive cousins such as the OLED 4K line of LG TVs.

A very competitive price for an LG 4K TV ; Top-shelf LG 4K technology and picture clarity ; Great connectivity ; Plenty of HDMI 2.0 ports ; Refined, streamlined Smart TV interface ; HEVC compatibility

There are cheaper options from Samsung and others ; Edge-lit LED backlighting causes blooming/shading problems ; Tru-Motion engine causes problems in some content

If you want a very high-quality, versatile LG TV that packs a lot of punch without breaking your home entertainment budget, then get the 49UB8500.

Good TV

 

Honestly I would pay a little more and go with a samsung or another more reputable brand. LG's customer service is a nightmare. I really hope I didnt waste my money on this tv.

TV is fast and responsive. The picture is good.

None yet. --Ok after owning the tv for almost a year after 1 month of use it developed a black almost unnoticable line on the tv. Then the right corner started getting dark... I contacted LG. The support was rude and I am still trying to get the...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Relatively ok

 

Don't take all the cons as total negativity. I still enjoy the TV, just wish some of the features were a little smoother/faster. And, I wish the pixels weren't dropping off the grid.

Crisp display, Magic Remote mostly enjoyable.

One pixel DOA, more dropping after 6 months. Redesign of Magic Remote, from 2013 model, moved the 3D button directly into the middle of selection area for volume/channel/mute/input selects (not the best designer idea of the year).. Magic Remote seems...

Review for PC Enthusiasts

 

Despite the dead pixel and edge lighting issues, the TV is still quite acceptable, and is the cheapest large format 4k display that can be used as a monitor. Throw in the 3d and it becomes a price/performance point that no other manufacturer can match.

One of the only TVs to work at 4k 60hz and still maintain 4:4:4 sampling when connected to a PC via HDMI 2.0, and it works OOB without any tweaking(requires a GPU with HDMI 2, currently only NVIDIA 900 series). Passive 2d to 3d is a cool feature to add...

One stuck pixel (not worth RMA). Edge lit seems to work in zones, and on mostly black screens shows poor implementation of an already inferior technology. The pixel layer appears to have the last 3/8" border curved at the edges, and depending on the...

No more TV envy in stores

 

This is the first TV I've had where I walk into a store and don't feel TV envy. This is nearly the smallest 4K/C4K TV available. Using 4K video from my Panasonic GH4, it is an impressive resolution. Input from HDMI seems good and you have to be close...

Smooth motion, 4K resolution, multiple inputs, good stand

2 person assembly, stand requires a rather large space

Consumer review (newegg.com)

reason tv seems so slow.

 

didn't buy here

in order for a 3-d tv to display right and left images it must alternate right and left images effectively halving the refresh rate. hdmi auto negotiates this and thus the tv set may be showing all input as 3d or 2d source as virtual 3d. the device or...

information from vendor would be nice to know if this is why it seems to be a 60hz tv to the other user
