    LG B8PUA Reviews

    B8PUA 55" Class HDR UHD Smart OLED TV is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply AMAZING! After purchasing a new couch for the family room, decided to take advantage of relocating our TV to above the fireplace. TV used to be located on the wall on the right and viewing it was always though. This set has a great view from any seat! The remote with the magic wand is awesome, very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent as advertised. Only had for a week or so but the picture is all as promised.  This TV replaced another LG.  The basic setup looks about the same.  Easy. Connecting all device cables is easy.  Very accessible. I have a Klipsch sound bar which I use in balance with the built-in speakers.  Getting great, full and clear sound.  Phone service is very good should you actually talk to a person who can be understood and thinks beyond their script.  Second call I connected with a terrific woman who walked me through the problem with great patience.  Thanks for that.  The only problem I never fully resolved was connecting the Directv, sound bar and LG remotes.  Have resigned to using two remotes for sound control.  I can live with that.  I do recommend this set based on what Ive experienced so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful picture, fast delivery We ordered this television and received it ahead of its scheduled delivery. Much appreciated the packing job and speed of delivery. The picture itself is impressive. We use it in a brightly lit room and its really neat how deep the blacks are...definitely recommend the unit and B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding picture quality and features! This is a very long review, so here’s a synopsis.  It’s an amazing TV in terms of picture quality, and overall works well.  It’s only flaws are a few hiccups when autoswitching ARC sound with peripherals like a soundbar or blu-ray player, taking a few clicks to get the sound output correct.  In addition, it also tends to completely screw up the ARC channel and cause sound skipping if the “quick start” function is turned on so that the TV wakes up quicker.  Turning that OFF solved my intermittent sound and “not compatible” issues with Dolby sound on my soundbar. Full long review:  Simply put, this is an incredible TV. Picture quality is nothing less than stunning.  Even my wife who isn’t a techie at all said “WOW” when we watched Blue Planet II in 4K on Netflix.  Of course it’s sharp since it’s a UHD TV, but it’s the color, contrast, and incredible dynamic range of the image that just takes people by surprise.     But everyone who has ever seen an OLED TV in person already knows this.. so what about the other things like design, sound, software, etc.  The things that can make or break a TV experience, in my opinion. The design of the TV very nice, ultra thin and looks very modern and classy.  The stand is a nice brushed aluminum looking piece, as is the back of the TV, except for the lower portion that’s a high quality plastic.  The inputs are all easily accessed on the left side of the TV, except for the composite, HDMI 4, USB 2, and optical ports that are located on the back.  If you use stiff HDMI cables, they may stick out a bit from the left side of the TV.  Mine did until I gently made a curve in them and used one of those Velcro cable ties to hold them behind the TV.  Using more flexible cables would fix this, so that’s not really an issue.   The built-in sound is also pretty darn good for a TV, and includes a function to “auto-tune” the sound to the room environment, sort of like a simplified version of the system used by some Bose sound systems.  It plays test sounds and listens through the microphone on the remote, then uses these to tune the sound output.  It makes a big difference and the improvement was impressive.  That said, I paired it with the SK9Y sound bar and SPK8-S surround speakers from LG (see my reviews there), and it’s great for a very compact and easy to set up system. The software and remote I’ll review together, since they work hand in hand.  The software interface is pretty good, and I like it much much better than the system used by TCL Roku TV’s, which is the only other Smart TV I have experience with.  It’s customizable to a fairly good extent, since you can add/delete  apps, arrange them how you like, add favorite channels or programs, connect to Bluetooth devices, etc all from one menu.  Setup isn’t very intuitive the first time you do it, but additional devices are easier and the TV does its best to recognize new devices and help along the way.  Parental controls are also fairly robust, as you can lock tv programs and movies by rating like other TV’s, but you can also lock inputs, channels, and apps as well.  The remote interfaces with all of these functions pretty well, although I wish it also had control buttons for movies like FF, REW, STOP, instead of only having play and pause.  There is a function to access these as on-screen buttons, which is a bit cumbersome but it works.  The buttons aren’t customizable on the remote, which is a shame.  It does include a “virtual mouse” function that’s incredibly handy for inputting passwords and such when setting up apps, and the scroll wheel is nice for quickly navigating TV guides and such.  Voice input is ok, and works pretty well with google assistant.  For example, just say the name of the movie you want to watch, and it will give you options to watch it through all of your apps which feature it and/or your TV provider (xfinity in my case).  Netflix and Amazon Prime have build-in buttons on the remote, and that function works well.  Overall, it’s not quite as intuitive or in any way customizable, but it has worked pretty well, and can (with a few virtual on-screen menus) control most of the functions on all of my devices.  It can even control the main menu on my PlayStation 3 and Xfinity X1 box, as well as my LG UBK90 4K Blu-ray player and SK9Y soundbar. So what do I NOT like about the TV?  The OLED panel itself I’d say is nearly perfect, no complaints at all about picture quality, and the depth to which it can be calibrated is excellent (depending on the user mode).  It’s interaction with the soundbar is somewhat disappointing, but not awful.  When switching from an app or HDMI 1, 3, or 4 to a device connected to the soundbar (on HDMI 2 - ARC) the sound switches as expected to HDMI IN.  Once you turn off the device connected to the soundbar, it won’t automatically switch back to using the ARC for sound.  You have to switch the soundbar back to ARC manually, which isn’t a big deal except for once you swap the input on the soundbar from HDMI IN, it changes the TV to use its built-in speakers, NOT to the HDMI ARC which is set in the preferences as the default sound mode.  So it’s a two-step process to get the TV back to outputting sound through the ARC once you’ve switched it to another input.  So why use the HDMI IN on the soundbar in the first place?  The TV, while compatible with Dolby Vision and Atmos, can only output Atmos that’s encoded in Dolby Digital Plus (usually streaming sources), NOT in Dolby TrueHD (uncompressed) sound like on many UHD discs.  Therefore to get Dolby Atmos TrueHD sound, the source must be connected directly to the receiver/soundbar or it will be downgraded to regular TrueHD 5.1 sound.  So overall it’s not a huge deal, but it’s not a seamless transition to/from sources using ARC to those that aren’t.
