LG 55EA980 55" Curved OLED HDTV


We normally consider first generation technology something that wouldn't be suitable for real world use, but this is not a normal TV. OLED technology has been brewing in the labs for the better part of the last decade and we are finally seeing the...

LG 55EA980W


It's OLED, it's curved, and it's absolutely brilliant.

Amazing contrast performance ; Sensational design ; Spectacular colour

Curve creates viewing angle issues ; It's not 4K

The only suggestions we’d make are that you reduce the contrast from the maximum level used by some of the provided presets to around 80, and that you leave the Dynamic Contrast setting on low. This does cause a little bit of the sort of brightness...

LG 55EA980W


Stunning black levels, punchy highlights and a natural touch with colours make this LG OLED a great first effort

Black levels are incredibly deep and solid ; Bright and punchy whites ; Clean and detailed picture ; Colours are natural, vibrant and subtle ; Immersive, comfortable watch ; Good selection of smart features ; Responsive remotes

Slight motion issues ; Deepest blacks and brightest whites could have a touch more subtlety ; Edges could be crisper ; High price

The LG’s current and only rival is the Samsung KE55S9C OLED, which offers a touch more pizzazz, albeit with smoother motion. However, this is only the first generation of OLED screens, and while we like what we see so far, there are also a few issues...

LG Curved OLED TV Review: Dawn of cutting edge TV tech?


The novel technology of curved OLED TV has addressed many issues that plague a normal TV and enhanced 3D viewing in more than one ways. But it price proposition is way beyond the bargain that you get.

Great contrast and black levels ; Beautiful design ; Bright’ 3D experience ; Superior picture quality

Humungous price ; Botchy controller

OLED is the latest innovation happening with the TV technology that has not only allowed the TV to be made into a piece of exquisite art but great in everything it is intended for. It’s not just a TV, it's a piece of workmanship that is sure to...
