LG SK8100: good quality IPS panel (a bit expensive)

The LG SK8100 is a high-end television 2018, sold in 2019 too, it is EdgeLED NanoCell type so it is good without being the best. We think that this is a TV maybe too expensive although all its extras are good. Smart is one of the best and the processor that it uses goes well, version 4.0 webOS. The image quality is typical of the IPS panels but with the improvement of the nanocell to reproduce all the possible colors and improve the darker blacks, it is a TV that gains in viewing angles and the LocalDimming tries to improve the lack of depth of blacks which is important when we want to watch movies in the dark, its weakest point.
  • The best: good Smart and viewing angle
  • The worst: The high price and somewhat gray blacks
* The SK8500 model is an improved version of this model. Especially for the type of panel: Full Array that provides better panel uniformity.

Our opinion LG SK8100 (veredict):

Our opinion about the LG SK8100 is good in general if you are looking for a high-end TV without spending a fortune, although we recommend spending less if we want a TV to watch TV and some sports or look for a TV with VA panel if we are going to watch movies in dark cinema style. We can conclude that it is a TV that stays in no man's land, our advice is to spend a little more for the SK8500 that improves the panel and the audio or spend less for a mid-range TV that more or less meets well with regular use TV, sports and some movies, unless you find it on offer for less than £1400 during 2018 in 55 inches.
