Can you share the problems that you encountered with the 8500?Guys just some info and you ignore it if you want, i got the European 55 950 which to you is the 9500 model so i strongly recommend if you find it with a small difference in price take it instead of the 8500.
It's much better tv with 200hz panel and almost 1/3 of the problems that the 8500 has. I don't know if anyone here have it to share his thoughts but my story is that i bought at 5 of June the 850 and because it got a white burned line from top to bottom and also because LG never gave me a gift which was a bluray when they told me they will change it i asked them if it was possible to forget the bluray and to give me the 950.
With this in mind i have personal home experience of both models and i suggest for a decent money (i suppose not more than 200$) you will not regret it.
My 2 cents, if you wanna ask something you are free to do it
Well some banding and crosstalk in bottom left especially when i was using subtitles and since English is not my native language i had troubles in 3d but believe it or not i was among the ones with the less noticeable problems.Can you share the problems that you encountered with the 8500?
so very similar to issues with watching 480p SD content on a HDTV....sometimes blurry?The tv upconverts everything but the result is not always better than a good 1080p tv and the reason for this is that for every pixel the tv converts that to 4 for 1080p content, as you understand most tvs are not so good in this like a deticated device for upscale like a DVDO so here is the compromise. The tv blossom with 4k content but there are not available yet except some streaming services like netflix.
Personally i like my tv and i work it mainly with an i7 pc with a nvidia 970 and whatever i watch is upscale from pc with madvr and im pretty happy with the result.
A 1080 source only has 1/4 the pixels of the panel. You know that upscaling is working if the image fills the screen. Upscaling is always on for everything except 4K sources (Netflix 4K, 4K format on USB stick, etc).Hi I just got the LG 55UB8500 and I'm having technical
trouble, The TV box and LG 's website tells
about LG’s Tru-Ultra HD 4K Engine that is to up-convert all of your Blu-rays, DVD’s and TV programs to nearly 4K
That is the TV does the up-converting, does yours TV up-convert ?
I have gone thru Hell with LG Customer Service, got my tv on the 1/12/15 and call LG 7 time and hours on the phone
and the technology is so new they have no info in there data files on it. All i get is 1080P from my blu-ray player, and Directv.
They tried saying that i had to have a 4k source but i said what would be the point of Tru-Ultra HD Engine, why
would up-convert a 4k source Please help me.
does your tv up-convert to near 4k and does it said the up-converted resolution? If it does not say up-converted
resolution how do you now it is working, i know it's not going to 4k but i can not see no better picture
at all looks same as before Thanks
Ps updated to news firmware,
tried all ports, different cables,
and all setting in the menu.
Well with 1st firmwares my old lg plasma had better picture in sd channels but after some updates the tv is fine now.so very similar to issues with watching 480p SD content on a HDTV....sometimes blurry?
kinda disappointed. got some thinking to do today.
I traded mine in due to the cloudiness in the top corners. It was making me nuts. While my replacement unit is much better, there is still some cloudiness in the corners. If you aren't happy, I would exchange it.Got in on the Microcenter deal and my set has some darkening/clouding at the top Left and right edges too [about 5 inches on both sides] like others have mentioned. At the price I paid, I wonder if I should try to get it replaced. I don't think I can get Microcenter to check another unit in the store to be sure I get a better one. Do you think I should try, as I have 15 days to do a return or replacement. I should probably have tried to get Best Buy to match the price, but from reading their price match info, special limited quantity sales wouldn't qualify.
Also, do you think I should get an extended warranty for the set? Would it be worth it?
Probably not going to be much help, but I have an LG gpad and I can connect to the TV. Some issue between Samsung and LG maybe?I have a Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 tablet and I can't get it to connect to the TV to mirror my tablet's screen. I keep getting a notice about a hardware problem from the tablet. The LG is connected to the AT&T Router by wired Ethernet and I'm trying to get the tablet to connect wirelessly.
Can anyone help me with this issue.
