Do I Need New HDMI Cables for UHDTV?

Q I’m preparing to make a big, across-the-board system upgrade, much like I did several years back when HDMI 1.3 became standard for most devices. Will I need to replace my 5-year-old HDMI cables with new, higher speed ones to accommodate 4K video and HDMI 2.0/HDPC 2.2? —Mark Johnson
LG 65UF9500 LCD Ultra HDTV Review
AT A GLANCE
Accurate out-of-box color
Superb webOS 2.0 smart interface
Solid value in a 65-inch set
Moderate black levels and contrast
No future-proofing for enhanced UHD content
LG’s 65-inch Prime Series looks great with most content while offering sexy design and superb ease of use at an attractive price.
LG Electronics has impressed enthusiasts with stunning (and mostly expensive) OLED displays, but the company competes aggressively in traditional LED-driven LCD flat panels, too. The 65UF9500 reviewed here is a 65-inch Ultra HD model near the top of that line, and one of two models designated as Prime Ultra HDTVs (the other being a 79-inch version priced at $7,500). The Prime feature package includes, among other things, a wide color gamut option, enhanced brightness for highlights, and LG’s webOS 2.0 smart TV platform. Of course, it can’t boast the deep blacks and infinite contrast of LG’s OLEDs. That said, does it deserve a space among today’s top “regular” TVs? Let’s take a closer look.
