LG 55UN8000 Review • A good 4K TV but lacks in the darker range

The LG 55UN80006LA is the mid-range LG LCD TV of 2020. It features an ultra-high definition 4K display with 50Hz refresh rate, HDR10 Pro and HLG support, and numerous SmartTV features with streaming and voice control services. Moreover, the price of UN8000 can be called quite acceptable.

LG’s 4K UN8000 Series TVs are available in 55 and 65-inch sizes. In the proposed LG 55UN8000 4K HDR review using a 55-inch TV as an example, we will try to figure out how well the UN80 series models work and whether they are worth buying.

LG UN8000 review

Design

The LG 55UN8000 TV comes in sturdy packaging. When included with the stand, the 55-inch model has a net weight of just over 16 kg. Despite the fact that the case is completely made of plastic, the assembly is very high quality. The depth of the screen is 8.4 cm at its widest point. The slim bezel and Y-leg stand provide an elegant look.

The back of the LG TV has standard VESA 300 x 300 mounting holes for a wall bracket that is not included. The 55UN80006LA TV comes with a pair of metal feet, a Magic Remote with batteries, a power cord and an instruction manual.

Smart TV

Like all current LG 4K TVs, the UN80006 comes with the new webOS 5.0 operating system . In addition to multimedia libraries and numerous applications, the most important streaming services are also available, such as Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Disney +. It is possible to install other applications as well.

Streaming applications and media libraries run smoothly and can be intuitively controlled with the Magic Remote. Magic Remote is a combination of a conventional remote control, a mouse with an optical pointer and a built-in microphone for voice control.

Whether it’s Amazon Alexa or LG’s own voice assistant, both technologies work seamlessly. Using the LG Home control panel does not require any special skills. Here you can find your smart home appliances, such as a video intercom or home lighting, and control them via the TV.

A fast triple tuner is available for TV reception. The tuner is suitable for all types of reception (cable, satellite, antenna). It takes no more than 2 seconds to switch channels. With PayTV channels, the switching operation takes 3-4 seconds.

Recording broadcasts is also not a problem. We recommend recording to an external USB hard drive with a maximum capacity of 2 TB. A regular flash drive is not suitable for recording due to the large number of rewriting cycles.

LG 55UN8000 review

Image quality

The 55UN8000 has a 4K Ultra HD display with a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. The panel has a 50Hz refresh rate and has Direct LED backlighting . Due to this type of illumination, the UN8000 series exhibits a very evenly illuminated image with minimal and barely visible spots (dirty screen effect).

Thanks to the IPS matrix , the viewing angles are excellent. In HDR Effect picture mode, peak brightness is 360 cd / m². At this brightness, there are improvements in HDR mode, but the HDR quality does not achieve the full effect. Ultra HD Blu-ray movies have excellent depth of field and true-to-life colors.

With black colors, things are a little more complicated. This is especially noticeable when viewing content in a dark room. In this case, the blacks become dark gray. A similar effect is observed in highly contrasting scenes. The reason for this is the IPS matrix, which has insufficient contrast.

Connoisseurs of perfect black will have to think about choosing a model with a VA matrix. For a truly cinematic experience, the UN8000 series is equipped with the new Filmmaker Mode picture option . Here, all image optimization systems such as contrast enhancers, noise reduction, color saturation are disabled.

Only the original color and contrast values ​​are used. Since the brightness of the picture is also reduced, it is desirable to darken the room like in a movie theater. The current blockbusters can now be watched in the original quality as the director intended.

Ordinary television programs are also displayed very well. This quality is especially noticeable when watching HD channels. This speaks of a good scaling option. However, when viewing analog content, the image may appear pale and partially washed out.

Sound quality

The built-in loudspeakers with a total power of 20 W sound good. The acoustics are well coordinated and absolutely adequate for conventional television. The voices are crystal clear. The lack of a subwoofer affects sound in action movies and music videos. A way out of the situation can be an additionally purchased soundbar or home theater system.

In addition to Dolby Digital +, LG UN8000 TVs have several other audio processing modes. Unfortunately, the system lacks support for Dolby Atmos in the same way as DTS. As of today, the lack of Dolby Atmos support is not much of an oversight. However, it is worth noting that every year there is more and more network content in Atmos format.

LG 55UN8000 interfaces

Connections

The LG patch panel has almost a complete set of connections. The device is equipped with four HDMI 2.0 ports, one of which has an ARC

channel . Also available: connection to DVB-T2 / S2 / C tuners, three USB ports, TosLink optical output, analog audio-video input and line-in for connecting to the Internet.

As for wireless connections, there are Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi systems on board. However, you won’t find the usual line-in headphone jack. If there is a need to connect headphones to TV , you will have to purchase an additional headphone adapter and connect it via TosLink, or purchase headphones that support wireless connection.

Conclusion

Overall, the picture quality of the LG 55UN8000 looks convincing. The picture is clear, the colors are realistic. A weak point is the display of black, especially in high-contrast images.

When viewing HDR content, the image does not reach the desired quality. SmartTV, voice control, triple tuner with disc recording and extended viewing angles leave nothing to be desired. Recommended for purchase for collective viewing in well-lit rooms.

TODAY'S BEST DEALS

LG’s C-series model has been the go-to pick of its OLED range for several years. It has always been the most affordable model with the company’s best panel and picture processing wizardry. Spending more would get you a fancier design and potentially better sound, but the picture would be no different.

That’s not the case in 2021. LG has introduced a new, brighter and sharper ‘OLED Evo’ panel, and the C1 doesn’t have it.

With so much of the focus on the upgraded G1, it’s perhaps predictable that the C1 isn’t a huge step up over its predecessor. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though, as its predecessor was one of the best TVs of 2020, and the C1 benefits from a few subtle performance nips and tucks as well as a lower launch price.

Pricing

The OLED65C1 price at launch is £2499 ($2500). That’s £300 ($300) lower than the price at which last year’s 65-inch CX model launched. It’s also £500 ($500) cheaper than the 65-inch G1, which has the new OLED Evo panel and is designed specifically to be wall-mounted (you don’t even get a pedestal or feet in the box, although you can buy these separately).

If you’re after a smaller OLED, the C1 is also available in 48-inch and 55-inch sizes, and if you want to go bigger, there are 77-inch and even 83-inch versions available.

The full model number includes three alphanumerics after ‘C1’. These refer to the region in which the set is being sold and potentially the colour of its pedestal, bezels and rear panel, with some versions exclusive to particular retailers. The performance should be identical.

Build

Our review sample is the OLED65C16LA, which has a pedestal stand that’s a lighter shade of silver than the ‘4LB’ and ‘PUB’ version. It also has a rather unusual white rear panel that could make it slightly easier to find the connection you’re looking for.

Otherwise, this 6LA is identical in design to the other C1 models – and last year’s CX, which was practically identical to the C9 of 2019. Attractive though it is, sticking with the same design for three generations seems a little unambitious, particularly as there are things that we would change. For example, while the pedestal stand looks elegant, it's also very heavy, gives the TV a rather wide footprint of about 92cm (36 inches) and sits the TV quite low, which could be an issue for those who want to add a soundbar.

With the stand removed for wall-mounting, the C1 looks much like any other OLED TV when viewed straight on: a large screen with a thin, flush bezel and no branding. There’s a small protrusion at the centre of the bottom edge that houses the IR sensor and standby light, but that’s about it. Viewed from the side, the set has that typical combination of a thin panel section (about 3mm) and a thicker plastic section that houses the electronics, connections and speakers. This gives the C1 an overall depth measurement of 4.7cm (1.8 inches), which makes it much thicker than the G1 (2cm / 0.8 inches) and even the backlit Samsung QN95A (2.6cm / 1 inch).

Like the G1, the C1 comes with the new version of LG’s Magic Remote. The new model arguably looks less interesting than its predecessor, but it’s slightly thinner and feels even better in the hand. The buttons also feel nicer and are better spaced and there are more shortcut buttons to take you directly to specific streaming services. And the much-loved pointer functionality remains.

Features

The C1’s design is identical to that of the CX and so is the selection and layout of its connections. There are both aerial and satellite sockets (Freesat support for the UK), an ethernet port, optical and headphone outputs, three USBs and four HDMIs. All four of those HDMIs are 2.1-spec, rated to 40gbps. One of these supports eARC, and all four support [email protected], VRR (in all current formats) and ALLM. Add a low input lag of under 13ms and there’s no better-specified TV for gaming right now.

After their year apart in 2020, LG and Freeview Play have reunited for 2021, which means UK buyers of the C1 and its siblings get access to the full suite of core catch-up apps, including BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and My5. These weren’t live when we tested our early sample of the G1, but they are present on the C1.

They complete a strong overall app selection that includes Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ and Apple TV, all with full support for 4K, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos; Rakuten is available in HDR10 and Dolby Atmos; Google Play Movies & TV is present (for now) with HDR10 and 5.1; Now TV (or ‘Now’, as it has been recently rebranded) gives you contract- and dish-free access to Sky content; and Spotify, Tidal, Amazon Music, Deezer and BBC Sounds make for a thorough music offering. The only disappointments are that BT Sport, Apple Music and TuneIn are missing, all of which feature on Samsung sets.

This year’s LGs come with webOS 6.0 installed, and this new version of the company’s operating system is a major departure. Most notably, pressing the Home button no longer brings up a row of apps that overlays whatever you are watching, but instead takes you to a fullscreen Home menu dominated by content recommendations from various streaming services. The idea is that it’s less about hovering over or clicking on a specific app to find something to watch, and more about the content being front and centre.

Unfortunately, Netflix is missing from this aggregation, as it is from many similar systems, and that rather hampers its usefulness. The intelligence of the recommendations is somewhat questionable, too, with shows for kids often being promoted long after most children will be in bed, for example. Of course, a set can only learn so much over our review period and you might find that the quality of the recommendations improves over time.

We rather like the new home menu overall, although we’re a little disappointed to see that LG has deemed it necessary to include adverts for its soundbars in the windows at the top of the screen.

On the plus side, LG has also finally overhauled its settings menus. The rather ugly and convoluted menus have been replaced by a system with larger fonts, a less severe white-on-grey colour scheme and a far more logical layout, all without sacrificing opportunities for tweaking performance.

For most people, though, little tweaking will be necessary. Dolby Vision content will by default activate the Dolby Vision Cinema Home preset and AI Brightness Setting, and that equates to a Dolby Vision IQ performance. It’s worth leaving these settings as they are, as the performance is in line with our expectations of Dolby Vision, and the IQ element improves dark detail when viewing in a well-lit room without tampering with the performance under ideal conditions.

We leave the set’s AI Picture Pro and AI Sound Pro settings (which you're encouraged to enable during initial set-up) on when viewing all non-Dolby Vision content. These features have been improved by the new AI Processor Gen4.

The AI Upscaling, Clearer Text and Auto Genre Selection features are unchanged, but Object Enhancement has been upgraded. There’s also a brand new Scene Detection feature. The Gen4 processor also brings with it improvements to de-contouring, which should result in less banding of colours, and to the dynamic tone mapping algorithm, which LG says results in better contrast and less haloing around bright objects.

In terms of sound, AI Sound Enhancement now has height virtualisation. The new Auto Volume Levelling feature is designed to reduce jarring volume differences as you switch between different apps and sources.

Ultimately, AI Picture Pro and AI Sound Pro do a lot of the hard work and while some will still feel the need to tweak, the out-of-the-box performance should suit most people. As with the G1, for HDR10 content we opt for the Standard preset and only feel the need to switch the Auto Dynamic Contrast setting from Low to High. For SDR, we stick with Standard and marginally reduce Contrast, Screen Brightness and Sharpness. Make sure you also turn off the Energy Saving feature, which you'll find in the Support menu. You’ll also want to experiment with the TruMotion settings, more on which below.

Picture

Starting with Rogue One in Dolby Vision from the Disney+ app, it becomes clear that little has changed from the CX. With both sets side-by-side, it’s hard to spot any differences – the C1 is just a little richer in its reds and purer in its whites, but that could just as easily be down to panel variation as to a change in TV model.

The CX’s performance with Dolby Vision content was superb, and so is the C1’s. It’s a beautifully vibrant and solid image with lots of detail and excellent contrast. The scenes in outer space predictably play to its strengths, with perfect, pure blacks combining with bright, white stars to dazzling effect. The G1 produces an even sharper and brighter picture, but not to a degree that will have C1 owners feeling too left out.

Switching to Blade Runner 2049 in HDR10, the similarities between the C1 and its predecessor continue. It’s a fabulously punchy and detailed picture with a colour balance that never looks anything other than entirely correct despite the many challenges that the film creates, such as the yellow-lit rooms of the Wallace Corporation and the lush forest of Dr Stelline’s fabricated memory.

This film shows that LG has made some slight improvements to its motion processing, specifically to its most subtle TruMotion option, called Cinematic Movement. This replaces last year’s Cinema Clear and is designed to reduce stutter without adding shimmer to tricky motion. Though not perfect, it is a clear upgrade, maintaining a much better grip on K’s car as it flies past the skyscrapers on his way into LA, and again as it crashes to the ground in a later scene. Some may prefer to turn TruMotion off entirely, but Cinematic Movement is as close to a spot-on setting as LG has produced.

Firing up Thor: Ragnarok, also in HDR10, we’re able to appreciate the improvements to de-contouring, with the banding in the red portion of the Marvel logo being significantly reduced on the C1, compared with the CX.

With SDR content, the C1 skews slightly brighter than the CX and digs up a touch more dark detail. As Joe recites French phrases in the pre-dawn gloom at the opening of the Looper Blu-ray, the edge of his collar and the texture of his jacket are visible on the C1 but missing on the CX. As he drives along the dirt road towards the incinerator, there’s less noise to the image, though the CX was already a clean performer. LG’s OLEDs have long been appreciated for their upscaling abilities, and the C1 makes slight improvements here without introducing any flaws.

Even with standard-def, the image is as clean and controlled as one could hope from a large TV that is essentially having to make up a lot of the picture, and the bright whites and colours of the Pointless studio pop slightly more on the C1 than they do on the CX.

Sound

While the speaker system of the C1 is apparently the same as that of the CX, the processing has changed and so has the presentation. That’s generally a good thing. For starters, the horrible flapping that Blade Runner 2049’s soundtrack produced from the CX’s speakers is not present here, at least when the Dolby Atmos mode is activated.

The sound is more open and spacious, too, giving everything a slightly more cinematic feel, and there’s a cleanliness and smoothness to proceedings that the CX lacked. But on the other hand, the sound is less punchy and dynamic, and the presentation less exciting overall. It’s not dull to the same degree as the G1, and many would prioritise smoothness over excitement, but it should be possible to have both.

You can get some punch back by switching off the Dolby Atmos processing (which also limits maximum volume), but that makes for a far narrower soundstage and brings back the woofer-flap, so isn’t an ideal solution.

Ultimately, you should budget for a separate sound system to accompany your new TV. A Sonos Beam would be a huge improvement on the C1’s speakers, but an Arc is a more deserving partner if you aren't in a position to go for a full home cinema system.

Verdict

The C1 isn’t much of an improvement on its predecessor, but there wasn’t much that needed improving. The picture performance and feature set were already exemplary, and LG has slightly improved the former with its new Cinematic Movement motion processing and enhanced de-contouring feature, and slightly improved the latter with a better menu system and a more complete app selection.

Of course, you can get a better LG OLED in the form of the G1, but most people will struggle to justify the extra £500 ($500), particularly when the niche design and weaker sound are taken into account.

Some will still be disappointed that LG hasn’t gone further with the new C1, and not having done so could prove costly when we compare all of the 2021 TVs for our Awards later in the year. However, right now, it’s one of the best TVs you can buy.

The 3 Best LG TVs of 2021 Reviews and Smart Features

LG Smart Features

Besides aesthetic changes, LG's webOS hasn't changed much over the years, which is a good thing. A few years ago, it was, by and large, the best solution. While competition has tightened up since then, incremental and polishing updates allowed it to remain at the top. LG updated the platform in 2021 to include a full home page instead of the banner that was found in past models. 

Interface

LG Smart Interface

For a long time, webOS hadn't changed much in design since its introduction, but it was completely overhauled in 2021 with the release of webOS 6.0, and it's still one of the best-looking platforms around. It's colorful, and its animations are both intuitive and beautiful. Everything feels responsive and snappy, and you are rarely left waiting for something to happen. The redesign replaces the menu ribbon of previous versions with a smart hub, complete with various widgets. Despite the new look, it still has the same smooth functionality and features that made it one of the best smart platforms.

Ad-free

LG Ads

WebOS has one glaring issue: the inclusion of advertising sprinkled around the operating system. While we've yet to see them on the main screen, they're just about everywhere else. Voice search, app store, web browser, all of them will sometimes show ads in their user interface. The worst is that there isn't a good way to disable them from within the TV itself.

Apps & Features

LG Apps Picture

The LG content store delivers just about every app one would look for on a smart TV, as well as direct rental of films. Essentials like Netflix, Amazon Video, and YouTube are all installed by default, but the range is continuously expanding. Overall, LG TVs have one of the widest selections of apps available on any smart platform.

Voice Controls

WebOS TVs that come with LG's Magic Remote have voice control. The remote was redesigned in 2021, but it has the same functionality as past years. There's a big microphone button in the center of the remote that, once pressed, prompts the search interface. It's useful for searching for content since it goes through most of your apps and allows you to even search for actors. Unfortunately, though, it doesn't have very in-depth control of the settings, like what you find on Samsung TVs, so you can't adjust the brightness without leaving what you're watching. The only thing you can't really do is turn the TV off and adjust the volume.

  • Changing inputs
  • Launching apps
  • Complex requests, e.g., "Search Netflix for Marco Polo."
  • Basic online searches, including "What time is it?" or "How's the weather in New York?"

Starting from 2018, WebOS 4.0 added a new voice control processor with ThinQ AI. The system can perform advanced searches similar to Siri on the Apple TV. It can identify actors in movies, search for sports scores, even find pictures in your favorite cloud service based on keywords. It can also communicate with a multitude of smart home-connected devices, including lights and thermostats. Newer LG TVs can also interact with Google Home or Amazon Alexa-connected personal assistants.

Remote

LG Smart TV Remote

LG’s magic remote found on higher-end models offers motion-controlled point and click functionality, which makes navigating menus a lot simpler. It isn't the smallest remote we've seen, but it's nicely sculpted and very comfortable to hold.

There are many more buttons on this remote than on Samsung’s, but they're clearly labeled and make it quicker to pick up the remote and use it – no tutorial or manual required. Some lower-end versions come with this Magic Remote, but the entry-level models have a basic remote without voice control, like the remote on the LG UN7000.

Remote App

LG Smart TV Remote App

LG’s remote app, called LG TV Plus, offers quick access to most of the TV's controls and is compatible with all LG smart TVs. It isn't as advanced as some of the other remote apps, but it does stream content from your phone or tablet to the TV. It can launch apps and change inputs directly without having to use a navigation button to navigate the on-screen menus.

Known Issues

There aren't many issues with LG webOS. The previous version had some performance issues, with occasional hiccups and frequent dropped frames in animations. For the most part, these issues have been fixed, and the latest version performs extremely well, but the interface can still hang sometimes.

The un8 series features a 4k lcd panel with HDR and web os smart tv system with voice control. In this review we will take a closer look at the 55 inch version 55un8000 but it’s also available in smaller 43” to 50 and bigger 60 to to 75” screen sizes.

what sets the un8000 apart from any other tv is the sheer audacity of its screen and remote control design. Thanks to lgs advanced ips screen technology, it produces surprisingly bright colours, so you almost feel like you are really lost on the beach. lg has also managed to improve color accuracy in comparison with last year’s um series, most aspects of picture quality are very similar between all screen sizes, except 50” screen size, which has smaller viewing angles than others, but on the other hand it offers the better black levels if you like to watch scary movie in dimly lit room.

Build quality is enjoyable and it feels stronger than it looks, otherwise the minimalist, clean lines look lovely thanks to its shiny metallic finish and Outstandingly v shaped legs sit nicely under the screen. They give the set a fairly wide footprint. I appreciate the clean look but, as expected at this level, there is not much new here except thinner edge bezels in comparison with um series. The frame of the un8000 is thin, but like all direct led tvs looks thicker from the side especially in comparison with edge led tvs, but nevertheless, it offers better colors, than thinner edge led tvs. 

 Spin the TV around to the back, A look from the left side and back reveals inputs and you can see that there are 2 usb and 4 hdmi ports,component ethernet, and of course it also has Wireless and Bluetooth support so you can easily connect bluetooth speakers or headphones. so If you are still using ancient 3.5mm or rca cables,  get an optical to analog adapter. Like all tvs, it supports wall Mount. But I think it’s much easier to connect old component things to it while it is on the stand. unless you like challenges on the everest mountain.

 

for all those remotes who will be lost on the field it’s worth pointing out that you can turn this tv even without a remote. There is one lovely button located below the TV under the lg logo. It works as a multi button and allows you  to change the inputs,volume channels, and power.

Like all lgs premium tvs the un8000 comes with a magic remote, which has a lot of features from number, quick shortcut buttons to scroll wheel. It can also be controlled by voice.  I like the ergonomic design of the remote, maybe it could have more video control buttons, but in general it still offers much better experience than some micro remotes, thanks to its built in mouse functions. Buttons follow your movements precisely, allowing quicker and easier selection of menu items. The remote also has very good navigation center buttons and shortcuts for settings.

LG has made the initial setup process as quick and simple as possible. There are no boring email registration forms,Though I wonder why we need to enter special area code?  LG TVs use WEB OS as their primary smart tv platform, which offers dynamic and adaptable smart tv experience… In terms of speed, it’s lighter and faster than Android TV and it is still equipped with all essential apps like WebBrowser, Youtube or Netflix. so that means you will never have a problem finding an specific option in the settings or to organize and install a new app. The Web Os is based on linux, but honestly lg has been making a lot of improvements over the years that have brought it closer to the fastest  smart platforms. 

 

As you’d expect. The un8000 series comes packed with IPS and VA screens. Unlike the 43” version, the 50”uses an VA screen, which has better contrast, but when you watch it from the side colors are less accurate.  55inch and bigger have Ips screen, which has excellent colors from all viewing angles, but contrast looks average in a dark room, nevertheless in some scenes is actually better than last year um series, because lg has reduced the spots of lighter areas on dark backgrounds, so there is less light leak on the edges of the screen, 

LG’s motion processing options equate to high clarity that persists even when what you’re watching contains a lot of fast movement within the frame.In terms of hdr performance,high dynamic range on the un8000 is fine.  it has more brightness than many other tvs in this price class, because it has peak brightness at 400nits, while some tvs cant go beyond 300nits. it works very nicely in a dimly lit room. The best part is the color viewing angle, which is much better than on Samsung and Hisense, so un8000 could be used in the much wider room and you can expect the best colors without degradation from all sides of viewing. it  delivers nice overall picture quality and offers its usual pack of picture adjustments. With just one press on the settings button you can get quickly in the picture menu, where you have many picture presets, without tweaking, the cinema preset is almost perfect. 

 

If you want something a little less brighter or colorful, you can use the expert picture mode to get that realistic look. It’s basically the factory calibrated preset with the accurate and realistic colors and contrast. 55un8000 has the best picture quality in a bright environment, because it has the brighter rgb screen, but in a completely darkened room it just cant compete with samsung’s va screen, because it has lower contrast, you can minimize the difference, if you activate expert picture mode. so The main benefit of having a lg’s ips screen is that you have a wider, brighter and more colorful picture.

The Youtube app is up there with the very best when it comes to handling videos and it has been updated with the latest suggestion system. I can say it’s fast and responsive and it works great with voice search.If you have a big collection of movies on the usb, lg has one of best tv usb players out of the box and supports all important video formats, so  you can play almost any movie without a problem and like all good usb players it supports custom settings for the subtitles.

Tv tuner  and netflix work fast and without lagging. The 4k picture quality is very nice and sometimes beyond expectations so it’s even no longer worth waiting out 4K movies. HD video show up well. when upscaling, whether from the tuner or netflix stream results in a good detailed picture, The Noise reduction was equally efficient  and The picture is also sharp and generally free of noise when upscaling low quality video sources.

If you want quick access to the web, lgs web browser is still one of the best, with quick in responsive menus. It supports the latest web formats and I had no problem playing videos. It has an advanced interface with a history and picture in picture for watching tv channels. In comparison with other tvs,  it is much easier to surf the web with a lg’s magic remote, because it has an integrated laser pointer and mouse wheel, so you can also easily click or type with it on a screen keyboard or if you just press on the mic button and use voice search.

The LGs web os app gallery has some simple games, but it’s not exactly an art piece the way Android games are, but they are okay for quick casual play. On the other side it has very good support for pc and playstation. When tv is  set in the Game picture mode – it has very impressive low input lag –  around 10 milliseconds. Which is much faster than average 30ms on many TVs and should please hard core gamers.

The sound on the lg 8-Series is pleasingly acceptable. 20-watt built-in speakers have a powerful midrange sound, But while the high and midrange sound was clear and focused, like on many others TVs in this class, I wasn’t able to achieve the sense of really deep bass. Otherwise the speakers are okay for news and sports, but for anything else it is still the best to connect the soundbar to it.

At around $500  LG’s 55un8000 is a great value. It uses the quick Web OS TV platform and it looks brighter than many tvs for its price. You can watch it from much of any angle without any color deteriorating. if You’re a serious gamer this tv has the best response time for games in terms of input lag.

 

Its motion handling, colors are all above average and it has excellent brightness levels. The only downside is limited contrast – black levels in the pitch black room. Yet despite all this, the un8000 is hands down one of fastest TVs on the market and it surely deserves my recommendation if you are a gamer or if you just want the best tv for watching sports with friends. Thanks for watching. in the next videos i will upload more comparison videos so make sure to subscribe.

LG UP8000 TV Review

The LG UP8000 is an okay budget 4k TV. It replaces 2020's LG UN7300 and UN8500, and like its predecessors, it also uses an ADS panel, which performs much like an IPS panel. This means it has wide viewing angles so that you don't lose image accuracy when viewing from the side but a low contrast ratio that makes blacks appear gray in the dark. Unfortunately, it doesn't get very bright, so it might struggle to combat intense glare, and it's certainly not bright enough to deliver a satisfying HDR experience, not to mention that it doesn't support a wide color gamut. It has a good response time; however, its 120Hz backlight flicker causes some image duplication. Lastly, while it has incredibly low input lag, its refresh rate is limited to 60Hz, and it doesn't support VRR to reduce screen tearing.

Our Verdict

The LG UP8000 is an okay TV overall. It's best suited for watching TV shows or use as a PC monitor because it has an IPS-like panel with wide viewing angles. It's decent for watching sports due to its good response time, but there's some motion duplication caused by its 120Hz backlight flicker. It has a low input lag so that gaming feels responsive; however, the refresh rate is only 60Hz, and it lacks VRR support to reduce screen tearing. Unfortunately, it's not the best for watching movies because it has a low contrast ratio and no local dimming. It can't display a wide color gamut and doesn't get bright enough for a true cinematic HDR experience.

  • Might not be able to overcome intense glare.
