What customers say about "Key Specs"
LG 55B8PLA SMART TV
  • Good screen, good sound, disappointing everything else. I will not ever buy another LG TV.
  • The screen is gorgeous and easily manageable by two people. The stand is very easy to assemble.
  • I like control is also a lot of fun to use and makes selecting things on screen very quick.
  • Screen could be more anti-reflective. With a table lamp 12 feet back and at a 30 degree angle, reflections are bold on the panel.
  • The screen goes dark. Called LG customer support, but they did not fix it.

  • The up-scaling is brilliant, and the speed and usability is great as well.

What customers say about "Video"
LG 55B8PLA SMART TV
  • Excellent picture. Best in a light controlled room especially given glass screen.
  • Sound is a clear step up from the C series. Overall a great display with some minor ergonomics issues.
  • The colors are great on the screen and it's very clear.
  • The picture is amazing. This unit does not disappoint.
  • The picture and the fact that the screen is SO thin- and the base is not that much bigger makes this TV hard to beat. The one area that concerned me with the LG OLED is screen burn in.
LG 55C8PLA 55" 4K Ultra HD HDR OLED Smart TV

  • Also very pleased with picture quality and the ease of use of all functions.
  • Ok overall a great TV. Excellent picture quality - Dolby Vision makes a huge difference.
  • Great picture and also that we can use voice commands with the remote. Easy to set up which greatly helps!

What customers say about "Audio"
LG 55B8PLA SMART TV
  • Picture and sound quality is great for bedroom. The blacks are deep and really make the 4K color pop.
  • Sound and picture quality are excellent. We hooked up the Fire TV Cube and it works great to switch from Amazon Prime to Netflix to Plex.
  • Beautiful picture, great sound, NO complaints after 1 month of enjoying this fabulous television.
  • The picture is eye melting, the sound is outstanding for regular TV speakers and the menus are super easy to navigate.
  • Sound is bad, can't understand words at low volume. My Samsung is much clearer.
LG 55C8PLA 55" 4K Ultra HD HDR OLED Smart TV
  • Great sound and has a virtual surround which is great.
  • Fantastic picture, great interface and better than expected sound.
  • The picture quality of this TV is incredible, if you haven't experiences 4K HDR before you're in for a treat. The sound it pretty good too, a lot better than I expected.
  • Sound is very poor for such an expensive tv even at 100%.
  • It does have issues with the sound but tbh it is only noticeable when watching films.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
LG 55B8PLA SMART TV
  • It arrived, as scheduled, worked right out of the box and has a great picture quality. Connected to the Wi-Fi easily.
  • All the connectivity you need plus a clean smart home design. Extremely satisfied and will again be purchasing an LG OLED on my next go.
  • What an amazing tv picture. My wife said it is crazy beautiful. Easy set up and wi fi connection.
  • Connecting a 4k UHD blu-ray player and watching a 4k movie is absolutely amazing!
  • I bought a sonos sound/playbar and had a lot of trouble connecting the TV and getting the volume control to work.
LG 55C8PLA 55" 4K Ultra HD HDR OLED Smart TV
  • Fantastic picture, great interface and better than expected sound. Very impressed and very happy with this excellent screen.
  • Nice easy side connections so very little guess work when locating leads.
  • Picture quality, sound, features, wifi etc. Everything is far beyond my expectation.
  • Only thing I don't like is the wifi connection sometimes disappears and I have to put the password in again. I wish it would retain it once I have input it.
  • Only complaint, I need to find a way to disable an HDMI source triggering the TV to turn on.
