LG SK8000 TV Review – RTINGS.com



Hands-on review of the LG SK8000 UHD TV

The LG SK8000 is a good TV with an IPS panel. It is best suited to a bright room with wide seating. In this review, we compare it to 4 other popular models.

Full review:

The IPS panel of the SK8000 results in a low native contrast ratio, so blacks appear gray when viewed in the dark. The image remains accurate when viewed at an angle though. Unfortunately, the local dimming in ineffective at improving this dark scene performance. The TV has low input lag, which is great for gamers.

Model tested: 55” (55SK8000PUA)
Should also be valid for the 49” (49SK8000PUA) and 65” (65SK8000PUA).
Note that the 49” model has a 60Hz panel rather than the 120Hz panel found in the other sizes, but we expect the performance to be almost the same.

    WARNING ⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️ I purchased this tv for my bedroom and it has horrible blooming/flashlighting issues!! Its so horrible that if your watching hdr/dolby vision etc the picture is so washed out by blooming/flashlighting that it's almost impossible to watch!! LG should be ashamed to release such a horrible tv! Oh by the way LG warranty will tell you this problem is normal and they won't exchange or refund money. So your basically screwed if you buy this horrible tv!! DONT BUY THIS TV!!!!!!

    I bought this TV in December 2018,
    There's some issue in dripping Wi-Fi connection, and lost pointer magic remote.
    August 2019 I claim warranty to LG Service Center Indonesia , and mother board got changed but next week the problem its happened again.

    This tv is completely worthless in a dark room. Black doesn’t exist so dark scenes are a gray mist all over the screen. I returned it to the seller and finally I bought a 55” LgC8 OLED instead.
    I also tried the Sony XF9005 and it’s top notch compared to this model which should never been made available for the public.

    Really good video with lots of info. But I was astonished with the audio part, I have seen this tv in show room and the Dolby Atmos produced great sound. Is this model with Dolby Atmos?
