There is no reason that you can’t get top quality along with a lot of features for a good price. Innovative IPS or “In-Plane Switching” panel technology distinguishes the LG 49UB8500 from the rest of the pack, making it stand out as one of the leaders in entertainment products. In Plane Switching panels give a wider angle of view which makes them ideal for family viewing.

Besides the panel, the LG 49UB8500 has the Tru-4K Engine Pro which will upscale HD content to near 4K quality – in fact you’ll probably find it difficult to tell the difference.

Like an upgrade to content that’s not upgraded – and that means that you don’t need to wait for movies or your other media to be created with 4K technology in order to enjoy it.

LG 49UB8500 4K Ultra HD TV ReviewYou can go ahead and use whatever media that you currently have. LG’s exclusive Tru-ULTRA HD Engine converts your SD/HD video to near 4K standards. This enhancer will ensure that you get great quality every time you watch one of your older technology items.

The High Efficiency Video Coding or HEVC is what’s used with 4K technology. With 4K, it’s going to keep on advancing and keep on creating marvelous ways for consumers to enjoy their entertainment.

This is an important feature for a 4K television. You need the decoder in order to view future content as it changes. It has the new WebOS platform for better tracking of what kind of content that you want to see.

When you watch certain fast paced things on a larger television, such as sports – or you’re playing your video games, you can sometimes get a jump. This television prevents that with the UCI or Ultra Clarity Index that’s just for LG Ultra HD televisions.

And the connectivity with this LG 49UB8500 is fantastic – You get 1 HDMI 2.0,  3 HDMI 1.4, 1 USB 3.0,  2 USB 2.0, together with 1 Component, 1 Composite, 1 Digital Audio Out (optical), 1 PC Audio, 1 LAN, and 1 Headphone socket.

LG UB8500 Benefits

Because this is a Smart television, it”s easy to enjoy on-line entertainment streamed directly to the set. And this model has the new WebOS platform with Magic Remote control. WebOS has been widely acclaimed as the best smart TV UI currently available.  Viewing online content has never been easier or faster so you can hook up with content companies such as Netflix or YouTube and have what you want to see brought up fast.

You’ll be able to go through shows and movies for your selection and applications as well. Since each customer is different and has different content they prefer, this model allows users to set up the home screen with media that’s favorited.

Oh – and the Ultra HD Cinema 3D televisions can also turn 2D into 3D for an extra enjoyment – particularly if you have children who love 3D movies.  With built in Passive 3D – just like they use in the cinema – you can enjoy 3D movies right in your sitting room with lightweight theater-style glasses.

Plus, this television comes with a magic remote. Using this remote lets users do more than simply change the channel. You can use it to control your music, the movies you want to see and even games. The remote can respond with touch or voice commands.

And if the 49″ is not quite big enough for you, check out the 55″ model, the LG 55UB8500 here
