In case you are wondering the difference between the LG UH8500 and the LG UH9500, the later offers a more ultraslim design.

LG UH8500 Super UHD TV is available in 55-inch, 60-inch, 65-inch, or 75-inch models with model numbers LG 55UH8500, LG 60UH8500, LG 65UH8500 and LG 75UH8500 respectively.
Design and Display
Like the UH9500, the LG UH8500 parades an elegant, slim design. It sports a metallic finish, combining silver and white. LG says the major difference between the UH8500 and UH9500 is that the latter boasts an ultra-slim design ‘with 4-sided even bezel.” The TV is available in 55-inch, 60-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch sizes.
The LG UH8500 uses an IPS 4K Quantum Display, which shouldn’t be confused with the Quantum Dot Technology of Samsung TVs, though they are somewhat the same.
The edge-lit LED TV also boasts TruMotion 240Hz technology for blur-free and super-sharp fast-moving scenes in movies, video games and sports. It is one of the first sets to support both HDR and the more-advanced Dolby Vision, ensuring buyers can access higher dynamic range content than most other TVs.
LG UH8500 is a WebOS 3.0 Smart TV. The latest LG operating system which powers it ensures that users get full dose of entertainment in their downtime.
The signature Magic Remote is also part of the package, allowing you to control the UH8500 through a variety of means, including the use of voice commands.
A Magic Zoom feature lets you zero in on minute details by enlarging the screen using the Zoom button on the remote control. You can use the Home button to add channels to tiles at the bottom of the screen and easily switch from live programming to streaming services.
Like the UH9500, the LG UH8500 offers passive 3D viewing, with two pair of 3D glasses included. It features a 2.2 Channel speaker system with 40W sound output power and backed by audio powerhouse Harman Kardon.
The TV features built-in Wi-Fi 802.11ac with Wi-Fi Direct and full web browser. Input and output options include three HDMI ports, three USB ports, an Ethernet port and an Optical port.
