LG Electronics LG 49SK8000PLB 49-Inch Super UHD 4K HDR Premium Smart LED TV : Great value for money and ticked all the boxes!

Picture quality really good. Replace a panasonic biers tv which was good but this is better. Good colours and uhd is excellent. Built in google assistant and alexa nice additions.

Same length that tvyou need a 1. Will be ok if you wall hung. The remote center wheel a bit to smallfeels naf.

I needed a quality second tv for our games/kids room. The tv gets used for xbox one and a number of films e. My main tv is a lg 960 oled which is nothing short of stunning. Being a second tv, i didn’t have the budget for another oled so looked at alternatives. After reading a number of reviews this tv ticked all of the boxes, game mode has a very low lag, magic remote, same tech as used in the oleds for black, the fantastic lg webos, dolby atmos, and vision. My only concerns were that a number of people have commented on dark scenes, the ips/led shining through to almost a gray, i believe linus tech tips also covered this tv in one of their shows but did put it next to a premium top end oled (over 3k)i’ve received it and very impressed. I’m impressed with the blacks, they look really good and not to much backlight bleed. The standard out of the box picture settings are on the eco side, so will need playing around with but very impressed considering owning an oled.

I bought this tv to replace a 2015 sony uhd tv. The tv is fantastic with so many features. Nothing to criticise only praise for a wonderful responsive tv with a brilliant picture.

Fantastic deal for this product. Amazing picture quality, sound through arc allows for easy connection to av amp. Delivery was careful and considerate. Took time and helped unpackage and checked the tv thoroughly before allowing me to sign for delivery.

For the price and screen size, this must be one of the best buys on the market. Great colour and clarity, good sound and looks great too. I would recumbent this tv to anyone.

Purchased for use with xbox one s 4k, and very pleased with result. Ticked all the compatibility needs of xbox 4k and dolby atmos was picked up by apple tv 4k too. Considering the current discount (52%) it’s a no brainer.

A which best buy, and it deserves to be too. The size is perfect for our room, picture quality, colour and sound superb, although i do use a sound bar when watching movies. I’m an amazon prime member and this works well. Remote control is very effective, although i’ve yet to use the voice control. All in all a superb tv from lg.

I originally bought the hisense h55u7auk 55-inch 4k ultra hd, which i returned within 24 hours because the picture quality was extremely poor. I decided to spend the extra £200 on this lg model and boy i am glad i did. The picture quality straight out of the box is excellent and requires very little adjusting to achieve the optimal settings. Sound is also very good, even without a sound bar. The magic remote is also a nice touch. The voice recognition and mouse like pointer that appear on the screen makes the tv even easier to use. Extremely easy to set up, the tv goes through everything step by step and helps you all the way. Overall excellent tv, i would definitely highly recommend.

For the money this tv is pretty good. Obviously you get what you pay. No complaints about this one except very soon after i purchased it, the price dropped by more than £100. Nice and lightweight, making it easily possible to hang on a wall using the correct appropriate wall mount (see pictures). Love the smart remote (brilliant shape, size and weight). It’s also very thin which is a major factor in choosing tbis particular one. My only regret is i wish i bought th 55 inch.

This tv is incredible, great price, fantastic all round.

Better than expected and installed very easily.

I bought this in amazon’s january sale and, i must say, it’s a real bargain. Once i got the picture quality and the sound quality settings, to my liking, it was such an improvement on my old lg plasma. One thing i was thankful for was the set-up instruction leaflet. At first i thought, “hmm, there’s not much here. ” what there was, turned out to be concise and too the point. Connection to my panasonic blu-ray/recorder and my yamaha sound bar was much easier than i, first, thought it would be. Two minor quibbles – i would have preferred a swivel stand. To get the best view, i have to sit square-on to the screen. As i spend a lot of my time on the computer, on the other side of the room, the picture quality loses a lot.

Use it only for gaming, netflix and amazon only (don’t watch terrestrial tv on it). Good sound and picture quality.

Excellent purchase delivered overnight.

High quality and powerful speaker system.

I like lg tvs for the webos and the magic remote but this tv has got terrible light bleeding. The whole dark area around bright scenes illuminates and the picture looks really bad. On the normal scenes the picture quality is good but i mostly watch tv at night after the dinner and i noticed this thing. None of the suggested settings could get rid of this problem. I have another 3d 4k lg tv and this back-light bleeding didn’t happen (actually that has better image quality than this and it’s been bought 3 years ago.

Excellent television set with most of the features you could wish for except there’s no headphone socket. My hearing is not good so i am unable to set the treble tone high enough.

Very good, sound not brilliant but remote sound bar did the trick.

Just what i expected from lg a good quality tv.

Good picture quality sound not to good price ok but had one day price had dropped by 100 pounds could have bought a sound bar with the 100 pounds i paid extra for the tv.

Nothing to dislike, easy to tune in. Quality picture is very good.

  1. My previous tv was 32inches, so this 49 inch was a bit of a “shock to my system”, (i’m a pensioner in my 70s). I unpacked it myself, but i am quite fit. I set it onto the existing tv table and plugged it in. The magic remote came with the tv and i fitted the batteries. I have internet and wired the tv direct to my router. Switched on the tv, and played with the remote. I followed the on screen instructions. 1 all these “permissions” impingeing on my privacy, and some might not even be necessary.
