Powerful and effortless to control – and that’s before you take into account the stunning picture quality.

The LG 55SK8100PLA leads the field.
Nano Cell technology – everyone gets the best seat in the house
Using uniformly sized display particles, this LG 55 inch TV gives enhanced colour accuracy and the ability to produce wider viewing angles with less colour distortion. This means that the colour accuracy remains virtually unchanged over a 60-degree viewing angle. Finally, everyone in the room can enjoy the highest quality images!

The widest range of HDR support with Active HDR
LG continue their wide range of HDR support with this flexible TV. Advanced HDR by Technicolor offers reference levels of image and colour accuracy. As well as Advanced HDR, this 55" LG TV also offers decoding for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision. HDR10 is widely used on UHD gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Dolby vision-equipped TVs, like this LG, can decode both generic HDR content and content that's specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

Alpha 7 processor – for enhanced picture processing
This LG TV features their advanced Alpha 7 processor. This provides improved processing over and above a quad-core chip. With the more powerful processing comes improved picture quality. Advantages including enhanced image rendering, improved shadow details and smoother motion, all giving a more realistic image than ever.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound system
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in this LG LED TV can decode Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. Although we’d always recommend a soundbar or base for the best sound quality, the built-in system punches hard for a flat screen TV.

Part of the unique ThinQ AI system for effortless control
LG’s unique artificial intelligence system brings together a wide range of products under intuitive control. For your TV this means intelligent voice control and the ability to seamlessly work with third party services from Google and Amazon. The more LG ThinQ AI products you have around the home the more seamless and integrated the control becomes.

webOS Smart system now with Google Assistant
The award-winning LG webOS smart TV system is already one of the most highly-rated in the industry. Powerful but user-friendly, webOS makes Smart TV even smarter. Now featuring Google Assistant, webOS just got even better. Google Assistant is capable of changing the channel and input via voice command. It also integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your TV an even greater source of entertainment.

Stylish Crescent stand
As one of their top models, the 55SK8100PLA is fitted with the sweeping ‘Crescent’ stand. Finished in ‘steel silver’ it combines with the ‘Brilliant Titan’ TV finish to make this TV a real head-turner.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb value I was getting sick of waiting for my Fire TV stick to basically do anything I asked of it so was in the market for a new smart TV. I asked on Twitter for suggestions and was told about this one. Reading up on some further reviews, including Which, convinced me it was a good bet. I've moved from a 37" LG with an ugly 2" black bezel so immediately this TV plays boss in the corner of my room, but looks sleek with the thin bezel. I'm not a real audio\videophile but appreciate a good experience and this telly delivers on both counts. Tempted to add a sound bar for a more immersive movie experience but that can wait for now. Setting up the telly was a breeze using the RTings website. The remote is superb. It's RF so no need to point at the telly, unless you are using the optional pointer, which is a god send for entering wifi passwords/etc. It also has a Netlfix and Amazon Prime button, both of which I have a subscription for. The apps load up quite quickly and subsequent switching between them is almost instant. 4K content is glorious, but even SD is well represented. Finally, with all that tech and a 6 year warranty, the price point makes this a great choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The GOOD, the BAD GOOD service from Richer Sounds as always, although had to pay £15 for next day delivery which didn't arrive until 5pm so I won't do that again. Installed this LG 8100 4K TV and expected a hugely better viewing experience from my 5 year old Sony HDTV which had a clear picture both day and night. Wish I had taken note of previous feedback online because despite the numerous picture options, the only two which give enough picture depth during daylight viewing are Vivid and Sports. Ignore the others which are useless unless viewing in a dark cinema room. However, now I've fine tuned the picture I can appreciate that 4K material from Youtube is sharp ( search for various test patterns to adjust contrast/brightness/backlight ), but SD material is not good even with alleged 4K upscale. BBC southeast news is on SD and appalling considering my old Sony displayed it as good as HD. All in all its a disappointment and I was tempted to return the LG within the first few days. I'll wait until QLED or OLED come down in price which will happen quickly as 4K has, once people realise they've been let down by the LG Nano hype. Sorry LG.. could do better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value TV.!! If your looking for a good Value TV, but don't want to Splash the Cash on a OLED (that are all the Rage), then this 55" LG 4KTV is the one to get. I took some time to get used to the Screen, mainly cause i was going from a 43", to a 55", and i thought it would be to big, but you slowly get used to it, and it does need a bit of Sorting out to get your own Colour Preferance, and you need the Dolby Atmos turned on If you can afford this TV, then buy it. And the TV has a good Stand, no Feet (whch i find a bit too Flimsy).!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing picture on all levels. This maybe 2018 model but picture quality on all levels whether terrestrial tv, 4K Blue Ray, Sport or gaming. Sound for inbuilt tv good but enhanced with soundbar. For the money it exceeds many twice the price and it’s not even OLED. The purchase was enhanced by very knowledgeable staff who didn’t process any bull in their recommendations.
