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 2 out of 5 by from The remote is not compatible with a Sonos playbar If you have a Sonos playbar I simply can not recommend this tv You can’t turn the volume up or down because the playbar is infrared and the remote is Bluetooth

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for money I initially purchased a LG 55UK6950 model from the Holborn branch. I had read negative reviews, especially the Which? one that describes it “the worst model of the 6950 range”, but I still took a chance as it is the only one in the price range offering the handy smart remote with voice recognition. Alas, Which? is completely right. Even though the sound is well-tuned, the picture quality proves to be abysmal (especially on SD channels) and my fiddling about with the settings didn’t improve matters. So I swapped the 6950 for the slightly more pricey 55SK8100. The picture quality is noticeably better this time, even though it’s not perfect. Thankfully, the HD channels are of acceptable quality, if you overlook a distinct yellow tinge on people’s faces, an issue that I still need to resolve. I’m perfectly aware that until all channels are broadcast in Super UHD, OLED or 8K, no one is gonna get a perfectly crisp, vibrant and colourful picture on a large screen. That’s the reality. If you don’t mind compromising the size by opting for the 49SK8100 model, you’ll get a superior picture quality. Anyhow, I can comfortably live with the 55SK8100 for the time being and I’m glad I chose it if only for its value for money (smart remote, multimedia and smart features). Transactions and deliveries were carried out smoothly, as it’s always been my experience with Richer Sounds. One of the reasons I’ve been a loyal customer for years, not to mention that no other retail outfit would offer you a free 6-year warranty. May I also add that the Holborn store team is something else. Matt and Judy are very helpful and store manager Steve is an absolute joy to deal with. I can’t wait to go back and buy more stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG55SK8100PLA Bought this large TV just before Christmas and after a bit if fiddling with settings I am really pleased with it. Sound is surprisingly good from internal speakers (I have a Yamaha YAS107 soundbar) even though I have a soundbar I had to try them. Usual thing with LED TV'S IS the lack of a large cabinet to help with the sound quality but the internal speakers are adequate. Picture quality excellent and with 4K from BBC iplayer or Netflix it's outstanding. Overall very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best TV you could go for. I bought this TV a couple of weeks ago, expecting it to be really good, however after using it for quite some time now, I would honestly avoid it. The Good: LG remote - the smart remote is probably the best in the business OS- LG software is pretty good, really user friendly and using the LG remote makes it easier to navigate through menu's. The Bad: Picture quality:The picture is not the best, especcially for 4k content, I was surprised by the lack of quality. It doesn't feel or look like a 4k TV , the quality in my opinion is the worst factor about the TV. The blacks are terrible, you might turn aswell local dimming off as it doesn't help. If you use this TV in a dark room then it will be a problem, however in a light room you might not notice it. Conclusion: The only reason to buy this TV will be for the LG software and smart remote, if picture quality is your main focus and I would avoid this TV at all costs and go for a Samsung nu8000 which is in a similar price range and alot better in terms of picture and HDR.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I expected an improvement from the 55” LG when compared with my ‘old’ 50” Hisense 50M5500. I planned to go for a Samsung, but the salesman favoured the 55SK8100PLA. Something about viewing angles, which in my narrow room did not apply. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons. Pros: 1. Remote The TV has a magic remote enabling extra features and it’s fun for the kids. 2. Viewing angle. The picture doesn’t degrade much when viewed from a neck straining side angle because of the IPS technology panel. 3. Aesthtics The TV is pretty. 4. Sound Speakers give a very good sound. 5. Packaging The packaging is adequate. Tight fit. Cons: 1. Picture Quality NOT stunning. After 3 weeks fiddling with every conceivable setting, unable to obtain a crystal clear bright colourful image- it’s too dim with poor contrast and dirtyish colours with a yellowing tinge to the white highlights. I saw motion blur also on horizontal movement. End credits of movies flickered wildly 2. No Instruction Manual There is no printed instruction manual about this specific TV. The virtual one is scant on information as it’s ‘LG generic’. How does one get best picture quality or connect various items? Trial and error. There’s a menu item for adjusting the external headphones volume out, but no 3.5mm socket- huh? 3. Connectivity There’s no scart, headphone sockets or phono sockets only a blanking strip. Maybe I’m a dinosaur but I still have items that use those sockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 55 inch LV 4K TV This television was bought 3 weeks ago to replace an 8 year old Samsung 40” model. The increase in size is compensated for by the much thinner bezel on the LV compared to the Samsung. The colour rendition is excellent and the inbuilt Netflix & Amazon features (which require paid subscriptions) are a bonus. Freeview works well and the sound is good, although we have linked it under LG Optical to an LG Bluetooth sound bar we already had. The ability to control the TV channel and volume using our Sky remotes is a bonus as far as we are concerned. Altogether it has been, so far, an excellent purchase from Richer Sounds, our seller of choice for AV equipment for over 25 years who (without being pressured) beat the price of their rivals
