Product Expert televisions

The LG 55SK8000 opens up a whole new world of entertainment. This smart TV is equipped with the WebOS operating system. The clear menu combines live TV, internet, and useful apps, such as YouTube or Netflix. This allows you to easily switch between a TV show and an online video. Want to connect a Blu-ray player, digital decoder, or console? Not a problem at all, thanks to the 4 HDMI inputs. Since you can effortlessly connect multiple devices to the TV at the same time, you never have to switch between cables. The screen has a wide viewing angle, which means that the colors won't distort as easily when you're looking at the TV from the side. This can come in quite handy when you're watching TV with a large group of people.

"A Very good television"
In the size: 49 inch (125 cm)

By K George on 28 May 2019

  • Pros:
    Good colours
  • Pros:
    Dolby Vision
  • Pros:
    Remote control with pointer
  • Con:
    TV stands are a bit shaky

The overall picture quality is very good. Additionally, the TV comes with Dolby Vision and the quality of the image and colors are noticeable when you play contents with Dolby Vision. The picture does not look overprocessed. The sound quality of the built-in speakers is decent but not that great, even though it has Dolby Atmos. However, the connectivity options are good enough to combine it with soundbars or other external speakers of choice. The TV user interface feels straight-forward and easy to use. The remote control can be used as a pointer which is very handy for choosing options or typing in using the on-screen keyboard. The local dimming on this TV is not something to look forward to as it is edge lit so It has only vertical local dimming. Viewing angles are good. Overall it is a great TV.

  • Pros:
    Really Nice Design
  • Pros:
    100hz Refresh rate
  • Con:
    Sound Quality

I was looking for quite some time for the right TV to buy, the 100hz refresh rate was one of my "must have" requirements. This TV has it all, plus, the design is really great.
