As an alternative, purchase (if not already) an XB1 S which will let you play 4K Blu-Ray in HDR10. Naturally a dedicated player would be the best, but if you want a gaming system and a great introductory level to jump into 4K Content you cant do much better than a Xbox One S for the value.

On a side note speaking of HDR. You may have heard the Nvidia Shield has a new Model. I think it is important to know that the original model will get all new features via firmware update. Here is a post I made on a YouTube page when I was asked if the need to run out and buy one was necessary if already own the first.

The original shield to get HDR support via firmware update. http://www.theverge.com/ces/2017/1/4...stant-ces-2017 - In short "Nvidia says that existing Shield TV devices will get the new features through a software update delivered sometime in January."

Anyways, this is important IMO (why posted here) to anyone who is already in or thinking on jumping into HDR via the shield.

Excuse my lack of knowledge on this but wouldn't an AVR with several inputs alleviate this problem? Couldn't all the things you want to input go into the AVR, or least some of them so that not having 4 HDMI is not a deal breaker?

Is this a big deal? Is it worth the extra $1000 that the 9500 currently costs on Amazon?

Absolutely. yet the AVR MUST support HDR 10, Dolby Vision, 4K and 3D if you wish to go that route or you wont get those features to your TV.

IMO no. The UH8500 has dithering that ends up making it 10bit output anyways. Save your money is my opinion.

Especially since Rtings found the picture quality of the 8500 to match and in some cases exceed that of the 9500, FWIW.

"The peak brightness is below average. These measurements are consistently lower than the lower end UH8500, which is a bit surprising. Although the whole screen can get quite bright, the local dimming significantly reduces the peak brightness of smaller windows. This test is performed with a HDR10 signal."

"When viewed at an angle, the contrast decreases a little bit but the colors remain quite accurate. This is about the same result as the LG UH8500 which is good for an LED TV."

"The higher end UH9500 has a slightly more glossy screen than the UH8500, but it is still semi-gloss. It should be fine for a room with a few windows."

"Although the motion blur is better than average, fast movement isn't as clear as some other TVs. The LG UH8500 which is the model below actually has a shorter trail following moving objects, but this still shouldn't be an issue for most people."

"The motion blur is better than average, but noticeable worse than the slightly lower model LG UH8500."

"The LG UH9500 is a good all-round TV, but can be hard to recommend for those looking at the 65" variant due to its similar performance to the cheaper LG UH8500. In some cases, the LG UH8500 actually performs better due to the lower response time and higher peak brightness. For those interested in the 86" variant there is very little competition and it could be a good choice depending on your usage."

For 99% of users and content available the simple answer is no, it's not worth it. The UH8500 does a fine job with 10 bit content. If you could get the UH9500 for $200-$400 more then it would be worth considering. But at a $1,000 more and the fact that you most likely wouldn't even notice a difference your money is better spent else where.

I purchased the 65UH8500 at Frys last Sunday after monitoring the price for the past 4 days months. I was hoping the price of this TV would drop. But after the news that LG is not going to make 3D TVs in 2017, I went ahead and made the purchase. So far I'm impressed. It's not the best, it it has/does most of what I was looking for. Kind of a jack of all trades, master if none kinda Tv. The 2D to 3D conversion is cool! Can't wait to actually watch 3D content when I get a UHD player.

nevermind that rtings.com rated the 8500 >9500 series, but if you look at the thread for the 9500 series, you will see a LOT of complaints from people.

Search for "G NA Top Girl 3D". It is ridiculously immersive. Almost too much so. I'm not one of those people that get sick from 3D or experiences vertigo, but this one almost does it to me. . If this one bothers you, don't blame the TV, it's just very intense.

Let us know what you think?

So i again called lg support on the whole 10 bit thing and their reply was and i quote

regard your tv the lguh850v, the tv is a true 10 bit panel with 400 cd.
It is not 8 bit panel with dithering.

The information you read on third party websites is wrong.

So what do you guys think lg is specifically denying that the
lguh8500 8 bit panel.

See my post 2111 with a PDF of the entire 2016 LG TV lineup. It's been out there for awhile. I'm not claiming I discovered it or anything, easy to get to. I believe LG had to update it too and just didn't correct a copy and paste error on their site.

This will always go down as a point of confusion for the consumer. I had contacted LG and was told it was 8 Bit With Dithering also, then moments later got another answer. Guess we will never know the true answer as long as you believe the LG staff who act like they all took different training classes. There own tech sheet now says "8 Bit", so that's gospel in my book. Either way, for those who got the set (I was one of them) thinking otherwise to find out it wasn't, no worries the output after dithering is 10 bit.

On the line up sheet, the marketing department would never leave off a "with 10-bit panel" tagline of a 10-bit panel display unless it was in error.
All show "Billions of Colors" so to accomplish this it has to be 10-bit panel models and 8-bit with dithering models.

P.S. when I was reading up on this TV, the LG site didn't make it clear if the Magic Remote was included or not. In fact, it appeared to say it didn't even though I knew from other sites and this forum that it did.

I'm all for 8500 having an 8 bit panel but I'm gonna throw a monkey wrench here...what do you think will happen to 9500 sales if LG openly declares that 8500 do have a 10 bit panel? Especially since 8500 seems to perform better in PQ than 9500

It's an interesting quandary to be sure. How do you justify the existence of a model that is supposed to be better, costs more, but is actually worse. The only advantage to it in my eyes is double the wattage for the audio and I don't even use mu TV speakers so that's a dubious advantage at best. I suppose design wise it does have a slimmer bezel at the bottom, but who cares?

I bought the 65UH8500 as well. So far I've been impressed. I know people will **** on it but the built-in audio is pretty good. I want to get a soundbar for it but not sure if I should hold out for Dolby Atmos sets coming later this year.

No the sound was really good. Until i figured out to run an optical to my non 4K AVR I used it for quite some time and enjoyed it.

I forgot my PS4 plays 3D discs so I popped in Prometheus...WOW! My next purchase is a soundbar. Waiting for my wallet to recover

LG 60UH8500 issue

Having an issue with my 60UH8500 for several days. About once every ten minutes or so, the screen goes black, then comes back on 1 or 2 seconds later. I thought it might be the cable, but other TVs in the house don't show the same issue. Has anyone on this board suffered the same issue??? I haven't tested whether the same thing happens watching a bluray--will do that later today. Very frustrating. Looks like a service call is in order.

Is this when watching OTA, or some other input source?

I have not experienced this. My first suggestion would be to see if the TV does this on its own built in apps like Netflix/Amazon. If it does then you can rule out any external device or HDMI problem.

you need to specify the source, is it a cable box? what cable are you using?

I'm in NJ, use Cablevision/Optimum, have an SA 8300HD cable box with a "regular" HD cable. From time to time the hdmi signal gets out of whack from this older cable box, and it requires me to reboot the cable box to fix, as unplugging and re-plugging in the hdmi cable, on the tv end and cable box end, doesn't resolve it

Optimum's newer Samsung boxes work much better.

I haven't tested whether the same thing happens watching a bluray--will do that later today. Very frustrating. Looks like a service call is in order.
I'm using a cable box, and yes, I realize it could be a bad box and am just now going to watch something internal to the set...thanks for all the responses so far.
