LG 55EA9800

 

The LG 55EA9800 curved OLED HDTV is the most impressive display we've ever tested. At $11,000, it had better be!

Pure dark blacks. Vivid color. Immersive 3D. Eye-catching

Incredibly expensive. Can't be wall-mounted. Some 3D crosstalk when viewed from higher angles. Colors slightly oversaturated out of the box

HDTV manufacturers have been experimenting with new technologies, trying to find the next big thing. Ultra HD (4K) televisions are the most notable because they represent a significant jump in resolution over 1080p, but they're also fairly useless...

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 55EA9800 review

 

LG's 55EA9800 Curved OLED ushers in a new era in televisions with plasma-quality picture in a razor-thin frame.

It would seem LG still has a couple of bugs to iron out, but we kind of expect that from first-generation technology. Even so, this TV looks fantastic, and it shows that OLED appears to be in a great position to deliver the picture quality of today’s...

LG 55EA9800 curved OLED TV Review

 

This is perhaps the best example of a transition from the "we should" to the "we can" stage. There is a lingering sense that LG made this TV because it actually could. The results are impressive. But as with most first generation products, there is...

Excellent black levels, Rich colours, without any visible bias, Unbelievably thin profile

Cannot be wall mounted, Reflective glass can be annoying

LG 55EA9800 review

 

It's OLED. It's curved. It's bloody brilliant

Remarkable contrast-rich pictures ; Stunning design ; Unexpectedly good audio ; Content-rich smart system

The curve is divisive ; It's relatively expensive ; Missing some catch-up TV ; It's not 4K

Ratings in depth I was frankly starting to doubt that this day would ever come.

LG 55EA9800 Curved OLED TV review: Brilliant picture quality in an unbelievably thin body - Tech2

 

The LG 55EA9800 is a sure-shot jaw dropper when it comes to aesthetics and image quality.

But we would still suggest you to hold back from going for this TV as the premium that you pay for the curve and OLED is quite substantial. A regular Full HD TV from LG with all similar features comes for around Rs 3,00,000 where as here, you’re paying...

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...
