The LG Electronics 65SK9000PUA 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED television is one of the top selling 4K televisions on the market today. This television comes with LG ThinQ technology, using artificial intelligence that has a Google assistant built right into your TV so it can be synced with other compatible smart home devices. The voice activated controls use the LG Magic Remote. The television also links to Amazon’s Alexa making this a completely smart and interconnected device.
The power to do this comes from an α7 intelligence processor, an advanced computer chip developed by LG, that takes the 4K HDR experience to a new level of viewing. The processor gives the screen a lifelike picture quality with intense depth and sharp color contrasts. The light features are to adjust, brighten or dim to really enhance a cinematic experience while supporting high digital formats such as Dolby Digital Vision that make the images and viewing experience even more vivid.
The Nano cell technology used in the screen expands the colors to absorb the unwanted light and reduce the reflectivity of the screen. With a state of the art sound system the Dolby Atmos audio technology creates an immersive sound experience that surrounds the viewer. The sound system is also blue tooth ready and supports inputs by HDMI, USB, Ethernet, RF In Antenna/cable, RS232C mini jack and a digital audio optical output.
Rated at 5.5 stars out of 6 on amazon.com the television is one of the best on the market. The reviews are mostly positive as there are vast number of features available to enhance which ever type of viewing experience you are enjoying;whether it be watching a movie or show to enjoying enhanced video game playback. The wireless connection is also rated by users as particularly strong so the television remains connected despite changes around it.
The picture and audio playback really is as good as LG say it as. The features, if installed correctly and set up correctly, provide the control and playback experience any person would want from their television. The device syncs very well with Google Home and the remote features are very good.
The one issue that is repeatedly listed by purchasers of this product is problems with the default system, which auto lightens or darkens as needed in the room. There are times when the viewing it does not quite adjust correctly. Turning of the feature or adjusting the energy saving controls seems to help the problem a bit.
There are also complaints about having syncing issues with Alexa. Most of the complaints come from an incomplete sync so Alexa does not have full control of the television for remote control through it. Turning the television off and on is not an issue, but finer controls such as restarting where you were is not always available for use or adjusting the volume or contrast remotely.
As always, the ratings on Amazon are well worth a good look before you make a buying decision. Not only is this a top quality television, it is also a step forward into the remote viewing world. In terms of price comparison, Amazon.com gives the better deal.
