LG Electronics LG 50UK6500PLA 50-Inch UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV – Easy Peasy lemon squeezy. Great pick

Very good tv with lots of good apps and good sound and picture quality.

Delighted with this purchase. Still getting used to all the features it has but feel it is a 5* product.

Brilliant tv, looks great, great sound, obviously there are much much better out there but for the money, i am happy.

After a couple of months of use, all the family really enjoy the tv. Excellent integration with netflix and amazon prime video. Good image and sound quality (but could be better). Freeview play is not working at all.

I’m very pleased with the tv and service i got form amazon, picture quality is awesome , i have to say the user interface is extremely simple to use and easy to set up you can effortlessly switch between prime, netflix sky ect. We have also connected the tv to our alexa which was fine once we downloaded the app on our phone. What i have to mention is my first unit was faulty and amazon went the extra mile and had a replacement out to me before the faulty unit was picked up, this was the first time i have ever gone through the process of returning anything and like i said can’t believe how easy and quick it was to deal with the complaints team.

Never owned a smart tvs before this is so good.

Awesome and easy to use menu, love the way i can switch between live tv, netflix and gaming on my xbox all under the same button. Supports now tv and prime also all in one place. Am happy with the quality of the picture and sound. Had the toshiba for a week then sent it back as it kept freezing. This one was worth the extra 70gbp. Really was weary at first and was going to plunge for the samsung.

Product information

4K Active HDR – This advanced HDR technology can adapt to a variety of HDR formats and provides scene by scene image mastering, delivering pinpoint picture reproduction.

Very good instructions to set up tv. Had to alter colour on picture as it was a bit basic. Very happy with my purchase.

Superb new tv, bit with limited instructions i am still trying to sort out all options and facilities.

After a few hours the menu’s are incredibly easy to a navigate and the netflix and amazon buttons on the remote are a life saver. I found the colour to be a bit dark and even after trying to adjust it, it kept going back to the original setting. You should also double check your tv stand is wide enough and the tv’s legs are right at the edge of the tv.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Lovely tv great quality pictures. Realised you needed to buy a 4k ultimate hdm1 cable made a huge difference on picture quality very pleased. My only issue is i wish it had a central stand the feet at each end make it difficult to manage while setting up and they are flimsy. But saying that the tv it self is great.

She loves the picture quality & ease of using alexa to control volume & channels.

I love it, it has all the apps including nowtv, netflix and prime, no need for boxes of dongels.

ThinQ AI – An intelligent television that brings convenience to your home.

Very nice tv sound can be better but otherwise very nice.

Very quick to start and navigate round. Screen is clear and crisp with a little reflection, but not too bad. Sound is very good even for internal speakers. Check the package before accepting from delivery driver – first tv was smashed.

And couldn’t have asked for more. But it’s not a smart remote with it, it’s a normal remote i had to buy the smart remotes separately.

The tv is great, it’s a nice picture and good quality. My biggest issue was with the stand – it was very difficult to put in place (very small screw-fastenings) the stand is also rather small and flimsy for the size of the tv.

Ultra Surround –

Delivered quickly setup was easy.

Love this tv just what we wanted. Easy to set up, almost plug in & play.

Perfect picture and sound quality. Perfect for gaming because a great hdr+.

High quality and powerful speaker system.

Easy to use ans easy to setup on the feet.

For the price brilliant tv very happy indeed easy to set up. I use it with shy q in the bedroom.

  1. Update: after using the tv for a week, i have noticed the image burn getting worse. If i pause a film for just 2 minutes, bright areas of the screen get burned in and persist for any amount of time between 5 to 30 minutes. I do not know if this is a one off issue or a wider problem with lg panels, but i will definitely be seeking a return or replacement. Picture quality is very good, but definitely looks better in a darker room as the brightness can suffer somewhat when in a brighter room. For built in speakers, the sound quality is surprisingly good, if lacking a little bass. Hdr isn’t automatically enabled, so make sure you check the settings and enable ‘hdmi ultra hd deep colour’ (lg’s over complicated name for hdr). The user interface seems unnecessarily complicated (and slow. Despite lg’s boasting of “a fast powerful brain. “) at least compared to the tv this one is replacing. For picture settings, for example, you have to press the setting button which brings up a mini menu from the right of the screen, but from there you can only change presets. To adjust individual settings, you then have to scroll to the bottom of the menu to bring up the full settings menu. Lg appears to have just added unnecessary steps to what should be a simple process.

  2. Seen the adverts about alexa and how you can control the tv with alexa. I had the 2017 version of this tv which doesn’t have alexa integration. I wanted alexa to control my tv as she controls everything else in my home, so i sold my 2017 tv and bought this 2018 model. Upon setting it up (which was not straight forward), i started using the alexa controls. The voice commands don’t always work, but the one that really annoyed me is that once you turn the tv off, you can’t turn it back on with alexa. I thought this was a problem with the tv and contacted lg, they got back in touch advising that none of their tvs able to switch on the tv with alexa, as the wireless adapter is not powered up in standby mode. My intention was to get rid of the remote or to be able to stop digging down the sides of the sofa. This obviously will not be the case and i spent £160 upgrading my tv for this feature alone. Furthermore, lg were rude and said they never advertised the ability to turn on the tv with alexa.

    1. So this tv is pretty nice, looks great in 4k and has a decent price. One of the hdmi ports on the back of the tv has stopped working meaning i’m down to 3 of 4. Thankfully i only need 3 but i hope this is not a sign of things to come. A lot of reviews seem to suggest the tv is prone to faults so i’m gonna pay close attention to mine.

    Terrible loud noise had no choice but to return the item. Unusable even at a max distance. Picture quality ok for this price point but trying to watch a movie with a terribly loud noise being emitted from from the projector makes it a frustrating and unenjoyable experience even having sound at a loud volume. Cannot understand the positive reviews, perplexing.

    You spend a decent amount of money on a tv only to find they supply 2 of the same feet supports meaning you can’t have the tv set up for the weekend. Then you find out the manufacturer support isn’t around to complain to. 😡 how hard is it to put the right items in a box.
