This TV does fantastic job up-scaling 1080p or 1080i content to 4K. All the worries about native 4K Content nearly non-existent can be put to rest. The unscaled picture of this TV is so much superior to regular Full HD that it definitely justifies extra money here. Plus it will look even better once the actual 4K content arrives. Other than that it has every feature you can find on higher end LG TVs.

From what I read online LG claims to have better up-scaling technology than the competition, but after seeing this TV in store and then later at home, that can certainly be the case. With all the negative reviews in press regarding 4K, I was very skeptical about it, but after finally taking the chance, I can say this is the best purchase I made in years. By comparison the picture quality on this TV makes 1080p TVs look like 480p TV 7 years ago when 1080p first arrived. It's just so much better. And you don't need to sit 10 or less feet away to be able to tell. From 20-25 feet you can still tell the better picture quality, higher resolution results not just in more detail, but also higher depth of color and more contents filling the screen. This TV does all the up scaling, you don't need extra up-scaling player or any other accessories.

I've tested TV with PS4, PS3, 3D Bluray player, and Comcast HD TV box. All that content was up-scaled to 4K. Movies and games look super detailed. You'd want to re-watch every movie you have after getting this. 5 stars no doubt.

Netflix, and industry wide, supports units with HEVC (H.265) and this unit does not come with that type out of the box. So this $4800+"4K" HDTV is outdated before it is even sold. Also, it's not hdmi 2.0 like the newer models. So you'll never get the proper input from a 4k Blu-ray or any other input. It's hdmi 1.4 and will have to be retrofitted at YOUR cost to get any 4K in the future. They did not tell me this and that is why I am rating this so low. A few months later it's price was cut in half with no restitution for even that either. IF they honor their promises and either upgrades, or recalls this unit, I will change this rating for this model. Until then one star is all it deserves. Industry goes to H.265 and they sell this unit in spite of that? Bad move LG, bad move. Litigation is all we are left with. This issue will be a stain on that company if they do nothing about this, we will make sure of it.

Even though there is no 4K content available right now, there will be soon. Enjoy 4K now with this TVs upscaler which provides a crystal clear picture. There is only one con to this TV: the remote is the worst thing that has ever been created. If someone proposed the idea of a Wii remote style TV remote to me, I would have laughed in their face. The remote also has this scroll roller like on a mouse and every time you accidentally scroll, it pops up a message to set up your cable or satellite to the TV remote so you can change the channel with it (which is worse because it changes the channel when you accidentally scroll). Get ready for 4K guys! the Blu-Ray Disc Association has already said it is on the way!
***************IF YOU HAVE A RECEIVER THAT SENDS SOUND TO SPEAKERS, MAKE SURE TO DELAY THE AUDIO IN THE SETTINGS BECAUSE THE UPSCALER SLOWS THE PICTURE DOWN AND CAUSES THE AUDIO TO BE AHEAD OF THE VIDEO (if you will be using the TV speakers, you are fine because the TV delays it for you) **************************

So, having bought this TV, I have become an expert at things I never thought worthwhile mastering. Among those things, hanging a large TV (which wasn't difficult and was kind of fun), hooking up audio (and then trying to get the picture and the sound to stay in sync) and waiting on endless hold with the manufacturer (who has apparently chosen the most horrible on-hold music ever and then cranked up the volume).

First, it is a large unit. It takes two, maybe three to move it where it will live and at least two to mount it to a wall. I have it mounted and hooked into an Onkyo receiver and a sound bar. All that is well and good but the picture is pixelated when up close, the sound does not synch (or if you futz with the controls and get it close, you can expect to do so again when watching a different program) and the remote control (MAGIC REMOTE!) is terrible. I gave this unit 2 stars because it does turn on and I've successfully watch television shows on it. It functions, just not well and my experience with LG was entirely frustrating.

Last, not least before I get more specific...I've had this TV something like 2 months now. I had a tech out to set it up and he couldn't get the audio synced up. When I called LG for help I was put on hold for 45 minutes. When I called back, they offered to help for $199 just to talk to a technician. When I asked to speak to a manager, I was told there were no managers there and sorry they could not (would not) help without my paying $199. First they thought it was my network until I told them that I was connected by HDMI to my receiver and then directly to the cable box. That was when I was told it would be $199 if I wanted help.
