LG 55" 4K Super UHD HDR LED Smart TV | 55SK9500PLA is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning picture and design, but dimming issues I will start with what I was most excited to test: 4K HDR. With 4K HDR10 content, there is some blooming, especially with bright objects in dark scenes and I find the dimming zones have delay when there is a change in a scene, so if the camera is on one person, then changes to another with different lighting, the backlights take a moment to adjust. There is also a problem in dark scenes with bright light sources. For example, in Black Panther (spoiler alert), the 1st scene when T'Chaka confronts N'Jobu in his apartment, the scene is very dark with single light sources in view, there is a lot of blooming to the point where the whole region will brighten up. This is even more apparent when we see the young Erik playing basketball with his friends outside in a night scene. When T'chaka's aircraft glows and moves across the sky, the movement of the bright objects on dark backgrounds causes a lot of irregular illumination that doesn't quite make sense. One thing I am disappointed in is the HDR, I really thought it would solve the problem of shadows being too dark that you lose detail, but this still seems to be the case. When watching a scene with a large and dark shadow, the shadow is very black but if I crank up the brightness to maximum, you can see there is details in the shadow being lost. Having the brightness up this high all the time is not an option as it makes all the blacks turn to obvious greys and gives a haze to the overall picture. I thought this was the whole point of HDR, to make dark areas more detailed and light areas even brighter, maybe it’s a setting I have got wrong or not yet discovered. Day scenes however are beautifully rendered. The colours feel accurate and glorious, textures are detailed and sharp. In Planet Earth II, you can see every single strand of hair on the Sloths and the blue skies and crystal clear waters pop with colour and transparency. In a shot where a Leopard walks past the sun, it is almost uncomfortably blinding when the sun shines back through, just like if you were there! I have never seen this before. Reptile scales are superbly detailed, you can see the roughness and all the different colours and textures of each scale. In the eyes, you can see little varying pigment cells and imperfections. Sand grains look like gravel because you can see each and every grain magnified in crisp individual detail. I watched the scene several times because I couldn’t take in all the wonderful information in a single viewing and it was a pleasure to watch and keep discovering new things each time. 1080p movies look amazing too. It is sometimes very hard to tell the difference between a 1080p movie and 4k. This TV does a superb job of scaling the image and presenting it with accuracy, vibrant colour and contrast depth. One thing I hate about modern TV's is motion control. I have yet to see a TV do this right without making a movie look like a TV soap. In the scene where T'Challa returns to Wakanda in his ship the motion makes the ship look superimposed, it really reminded me of the original cut of Star Wars the Empire Strikes back when you see a tracking shot of Snow Speeders searching for Han and Luke. The ships wobble slightly, independently of the scene, showing the ships are layered on to the film and don't quite match the panning of the main camera. This was (thankfully) remedied by turning off motion control called ‘TruMotion’ on this TV which has 4 settings 'Clear', 'Smooth' and 'user' which allows you to vary the levels of judder reduction. Turning TruMotion off instantly produced the true movie framerate which gave the cinematic feel I want. The only time I have enjoyed the motion control was watching episode 1 of Planet Earth: Iguana vs Snakes (probably the best natural wildlife scene I have ever experienced) was enhanced by using the 'Smooth' motion control setting. The scene is very fast paced and has many fast tracking shots and pans. Trumotion helped make this scene easier on the eyes and gave the scene less judder and strobing. I am sure there are many other sources that will benefit from motion control, like sports and TV shows but for movies I have never found it beneficial and it always gets turned off. I am not a fan of TV speakers, they just don’t produce the kind of full sound I want and in the past I have found the treble too harsh and tinny. This LG TV's speakers are rather good! Not as full a sound as my Home theatre setup (but I wouldn't expect it) but very impressive for TV speakers. Trebles are crisp but not harsh, mids are present and not too supressed. Bass is the but not full and deep. This TV has Dolby Atmos but I did not find it gave a very good surround effect, maybe with the right Dolby Atmos source but the 2 Atmos programs I watched on Netflix (Altered Carbon and Star Trek Discovery) were not that impressive. Another clever feature of this TV is that it can calibrate the sound according to your environment, taking into account the nearby walls and space between you and the TV. It does this by using the remote control as a sound measuring tool. When you setup this feature it will ask you to sit in your optimal viewing place holding the remote and make sure the environment is as quiet as possible, it then performs some tests and calibrates the sound accordingly. You can then toggle a before and after sound test to hear which sounds better, when I did this I much preferred the calibrated sound, very clever. I like being able to control my cable box with the TV remote and my media player turns on and off when I select/deselect that input. The remote also brings up a pointer when you activate it on screen, like an air mouse. This is the best I have used and is very responsive, great for entering information using the onscreen keyboard. Web OS is fast and responsive, although the settings menu gets a loading icon for a a few seconds before appearing. This can be frustrating when you are tinkering, entering and exiting the menu to make a quick tweak. It would have been nice to have some assignable preset keys, with so many functions and settings, I would have liked to assign them to a button for quick activation. There are so many other features that I really like about this TV but too many to mention and yet to test. The LG SK9500 is a beautiful looking TV it is not the thinnest but they have cleverly made the back of the TV curved, which creates the illusion of a very thin panel where I want it most, (the sides) and gets bulkier in the middle to house all the tech and speakers. They have finished off the edge with a nice golden band. The frame around the actual panel is really thin and unobtrusive. The glass goes right to the edge so the only time you see the frames thickness is when the TV is on. The back of the TV is a brushed grey texture and the TV has a very overall modern style. The power button is hidden at the bottom of the screen in the middle, so is not a distraction or eyesore. This is a fantastic LED TV. The best I have seen at home (but I have not seen that many in my home) away from the shop floor and TV demo footage. Apart from the local dimming issues and some detail still getting lost in dark shadows when using HDR sources, everything else looks fantastic! I think this is the closest you will get to an OLED panel. New features like voice control, option to connect with Google Home or Alexa, the ThinQ AI are really impressive. The fact this TV has HDR10, HGL, Dolby Vision AND HDR by Technicolour (should it ever take off) and the ability to present Dolby Atmos soundtracks is brilliant and gives you hope for compatibility in the near future.
