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 55EA9800 review


LG's curved OLED television has taken us by surprise three times now. The first was at CES 2013, when LG pulled a small army of the concave sets out of nowhere and at the last minute. The second came early last week when we learned that the curved...

Exceptional Blacks ; Superior brightness ; Highly accurate color out of box ; Eye-catching curves, razor-thin profile ; Loaded with features

Can’t be wall-mounted ; Disappointing motion resolution ; Minor brightness uniformity issues ; Lazy pixels may appear disconcerting

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

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

The LG 55EA9800 curved OLED HDTV is the most impressive display we've ever tested. At $15,000, it had better be!

I can’t speak to the usefulness of curved displays or whether they’re worth the sizable premium they command, but I can say with certainty that OLED screens represent the future of high-end HDTVs. The LG 55EA9800 is a technological marvel and the...
