Does this have an actual 10-bit panel? Or does the Nano Cell tech cover the additional colors?

The LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV w/ Nano Cell Display - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SJ8500 is an 8-bit + FRC panel. FRC (Frame Rate Control) is a form of temporal dithering which cycles between different color shades with each new frame to simulate an intermediate shade to achieve higher color quality comparable to a 10-bit panel..^IFV

LG TV Fan July 30, 2017

So, the FRC method will improve all the current 8-bit content (regular Netflix, OTA broadcasts, etc) to allow @10-bit color gradients. Meanwhile it should cause no harm to 10-bit images and even support the 12-bit color depth for the built-in 'Dolby Vision' standard:-0

HI I want to know the exact differences between SJ8000 and SJ8500 and also the meaning of letter " v " that comes at the end of the model , like SJ800V and SJ850V Thank you so much in advance

LGJoel October 3, 2017

The differences between the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV w/ Nano Cell Display - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SJ8500 and Model # 55SJ8000 are the design. The SJ8500 series has the floating screen design. The other difference is the speaker system. The SJ8000 series is a 2 Channel 20W speaker system and the SJ8500 series is a 2.2 Channel 40W speaker system. The "V" at the end of the model number identifies the type of digital built-in tuner in the TV. The U.S. adopted the ATSC Digital Broadcasting System for terrestrial television while European countries, Australia and New Zealand adopted the DVB-T/DVB-T2. The systems are not compatible and the SJ8500 and SJ8000 series TVs will not work abroad in those countries since they are designed for the U.S. market. TVs with the "V" at the end of the model number have a DVB-S2/T2/C tuner in them that will only work in countries that support that standard...^IFV

WOW,

By  from Grand Rapids, MI, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

Plain and simple im close to 40 now and this tv by far is the best Tv I have owned ever. Easy walk thru set up and once done everything is very simple to do on here. Now I know there are OLED tvs out there that are far better then mine is but for the price this is a steal plain and simple. I have not done much on here but for example Youtube Looks insanely great when watching 4k content and it will inform u if your watching something with HDR in it and theres a great difference when u add that to the picture. I have waited quite a long time for a tv like this and it was well worth the wait. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE, If you are on a budget then get this dont waste money on an off brand get this one u will not be let done. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

No 3D?

By  from Davis, CA, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 1

I have the 65UH8500 and the 3D on it is great- LG is crazy to drop 3D from their newer model TVs! Watching a 3D movie in 2D is the same as watching a color movie in black and white! If they're looking to cut costs they could drop the silly web features that nobody uses instead (most people have a Roku already.) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Amazing picture quality - exceeds expectations

By  from NJ  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

By far the most impressive TV we have ever owned. We have many other LG appliances and electronics that perform beautifully, and this TV meets and exceeds the high expectations that LG has established and continues to deliver in our home. The picture quality on this TV is unlike anything we've used. From kids animated shows, sports, DIY or drama, it feels like you are part of the action. Live TV is impressive, but BlueRay movies take the picture and experience to another level. The vivid colors, smooth transitions and sharp details are absolutely incredible. The controls and software are quite intuitive. First-time setup wizard was simple and helpful. The included remote and menus are easier to navigate than prior LG TVs we've had in the past. The Wifi connection was easy to establish and software updates are invisible happening in the background. The overall appearance is high-end as well. The thin edges allows full focus to be on the picture itself. The "hardware" essentially disappears when turned on and looks sleek and impressive when turned off. The tabletop base is strong and stable with an attractive brushed metal finish that complements the contemporary look and feel. The 55" screen allows for a great viewing experience, but the unit is still subtle and unobtrusive for its size. Extremely pleased with this TV and looking forward to spending time with our family for years to come. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

#TheMostAdvancedTVEver

By  from Texas, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

The Down and Dirty The LG Super UHDTV 4K 55” TV is by far the most advanced and enjoyable TV I have ever worked with and had in my home. This statement doesn’t do it justice until you realize that I own an IT company that sets up information technology infrastructure (computers, monitors, AV systems, etc) for clients all across Texas and it’s adjoining states. About the only way for setup and use of a TV to be easier would be if the TV read my mind. #LGYouHaveDoneItAgain The Good From opening the box to viewing 4k content. The LG Super UHDTV 4K 55” is simple to setup and configure. The controller sports a new way of interacting with the TV. I was impressed with the intuitiveness and simplicity to navigate around the TV during setup. This TV had all the good services to easily connect to and begin watching content immediately. Image quality on 4K content exceeded my expectations. It was almost like being there. #Captivating #Seriously The thing that surprised me the most was the incredible sound that the TV produced. I customarily connect all TVs to external sound systems as I have never met one that doesn’t fall short of expectations. To me a truly immersive experience includes not only the image quality but also the sound quality. I have finally met a TV that has an out of the box immersive experience! And to top it off, the only thing I had to do was plug it in and connect it to my wifi. I didn’t need the extra cables to connect my sounds system and my third party TV companions (Apple TV, Amazon FireStick, etc). I also connected this TV to my 4K capable Macbook Pro and used it as a monitor. Truly amazing! #LGYouHadMeAtSetUp The Bad This wouldn’t be an honest review if there wasn’t at least one shortcoming, nothing is perfect . . . Getting it out of the box, this was the most difficult part of the entire process. #DontTouchTheScreen. I have worked with TVs where the packaging has built in handles to make it easier to grip and lift the device out of the box. The only other thing I can say is that the TV takes awhile to boot when turning it on. This can be a little frustrating, but for now it is completely worth the wait. #YoureWelcome [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I love ALMOST everything about this tv. Very easy to set up and use. The smart remote takes a little getting used to. The only issue I have is with my home theater and cable box. I cannot use my cable box remote to adjust volume. If anyone can tell me how to set this, I will gladly change my rating to 5 stars. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great TV For A Great Price

By  from Missouri, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

I bought this TV coming from an 3 year old LG 1080p. To say I was blown away was an understatement, I can say that this TV stands up to TVs costing $1k more than this one does. When we went to buy the TV we looked at everything in the store and I have always liked LG, so we focused on these after looking at the competition and realizing nobody comes close to what these offer. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this to anyone. Also is my first SmartTV and I wont go back after this. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great TV

By  from Las Vegas, NV, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

We got this a week ago and are so happy with this TV, the color is amazing even when standing up close to set. Set up, going on the web is so easy. You can also use other controls to turn it on/off (set-top box controller, cell phone, etc.) or use the pointer and/or scroll with the wheel to select or search for things; this is one of the features we love. I was surprised how slim this TV was, not only does it fit nicely into our wall unit, it also give us more room to move it around. I do wish the stand swiveled but the TV is big enough for the room without this and has such a clear, beautiful picture its really not a big deal. It also has beautiful screen savers that come on when your set box is off! Just love our new LG smart TV! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Love this TV

By  from Atlanta, GA, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

I bought this yesterday, so I've only had this set up briefly. However, the picture is incredible and set up is really easy. I'm upgrading my old plasma to this model. I can't get over how awesome the picture is. My only complaint is that I can't get the magic remote to work with the dish network box. I've always stayed away from LG products because Ive always thought it was an inferior product. I read lots of reviews about this tv, and dollar for dollar this is an awesome, feature rich tv at this price point. My negative viewpoint on LG products has definitely changed.
