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

Although the curve contributes much more to the 55EA9800's sultry design appeal than it does its performance, nor does it detract substantially from the genuinely astonishing quality of the OLED panel's pictures, which are just 4K resolution away from...

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

 

There was a lot of speculation about how good or utterly useless curved TVs are and we had also given our opinion on the same. But as always, we believe only in what we see and so we got our hands on the recently-launched 55-inch curved OLED TV from...

LG’s curved OLED TV looks impressive. No matter how we feel about the curved panel, we were definitely amazed by how thin and impressive the TV is in terms of picture quality. It can reproduce perfect black, vivid colours and it also has a very wide...

LG 55EA9800 curved OLED TV

 

LG's 55EA9800 curved OLED TV offers a truly impressive visual experience but with a significant price tag.

Superb picture ; Remarkable contrast ; Elegant design ; Great brightness

High price tag ; Reflective screen

No one will blame the rest of us for waiting a little while to see what happens down the track.

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...

But if you want a TV with exceptional 2D picture performance, the usual quality LG smarts, and astonishingly attractive styling, then the LG 55EA9800 OLED TV is well worthy of your attention.

Reduced resolution 3D, Fairly expensive, Not wall mountable
