LG 55EC9300 review

 

If you're so hungry for OLED that you're willing to overlook some image judder, then the EC9300 is an otherwise excellent television.

We’re in a pickle here. On one hand, the 55EC9300 delivers the promise of near-perfect blacks, excellent contrast, and rich color that OLED is revered for. Pair that with an excellent smart TV interface and wrap it up in a sexy package, and you’ve got...

LG 55EC9300 curved OLED HDTV review: Stunning image quality, but no 4K

 

Despite the absence of 4K support, I found no trouble with this curve.

OLED technology delivers brilliant picture quality ; The curved display is no mere gimmick ; WebOS supports one of the best smart-TV user interfaces we've seen

1080p resolution, not 4K ; Much higher price tag than LCD TVs of the same size and resolution

The LG 55EC9300 is an excellent TV, thanks to OLED technology, curved glass, and WebOS. It would be even better in 4K, but it would also be considerably more expensive.

The curved LG 55EC9300 proves that OLED technology is the future of HDTVs, even if it's too expensive for most consumers right now.

Excellent picture. Perfect black levels. Accurate color. Very good 3D effect with both included glasses and clip-on lenses.

Very expensive. Magic Remote can be tricky to use at times.

The HDTV supports passive 3D, and comes with two pairs of glasses and two pairs of clip-on 3D filters you can put over your own glasses. The clip-ons are a nice touch that makes it much easier for glasses wearers to enjoy 3D. I watched IMAX Under the...

LG 55EC9300 review

 

Videophiles who mourn the loss of plasma , take heart: OLED is better , and thanks to LG it's finally getting cheaper.

The LG 55EC9300 OLED TV's picture betters that of any LCD or plasma TV, with perfect black levels and exceedingly bright whites. It's equally adept in bright and dark rooms, showed accurate color, and looks better from off-angle than any LED LCD. Its...

Albeit the most-affordable OLED TV yet, the 55EC9300 is still very expensive for a 55-inch TV. Its video processing and color accuracy don't measure up to that of the best TVs, and the curved screen introduces some artifacts.

The 55-inch LG 55EC9300 offers the world-beating picture quality of OLED TV for the lowest price yet.

It’s possible that curved displays will end up being the same flash in the pan that 3D TV was, but I hope that’s not what happens. And while OLED technology is expensive, it looks better than LCD. I heartily recommend you check it out for yourself...

Still, the LG offers overall picture quality that the toughest experts judge to be on a par with the PN60F8500 overall, as witnessed by those two sets being declared co-winners of the 2014 Value Electronics Shoot Out. To its credit, the Samsung is more...

Incredible black levels, Good color performance, High brightness

Minor concerns over image retention, Some small color bobbles, Not the best motion performance

LG 55-inch curved OLED (55EC930T) TV review: The future of OLED is bright

 

Fantastic colour production, promising smart TV software and stunning design are hallmarks of LG's 55-inch OLED television

Excellent colour production ; Deep blacks ; Stunning design ; Fantastic WebOS software makes smart TV features simple to use

Limited gamut with blacks ; Small application ecosystem ; No future support for WebOS 2.0

LG 55EC930V

 

It may not be 4K, but OLED tech makes this an awesome HD TV

Unprecedentedly good black-level response ; Spectacularly vivid colours ; Surprisingly affordable for OLED

It's not 4K ; Some slightly flawed processing ; Some motion issues, especially with 3D

We recommend turning off the Dynamic Contrast system for reasons we'll discuss later, and we felt the need to use LG’s TruMotion processing to stop the image losing clarity over motion. Alhough we’d only recommend the latter's Clear setting or a custom...

LG 55EC930V review

 

OLED becomes affordable – and it's lovely.

Deep blacks Punchy colours Wonderful clarity That curve

No 4K Could sound better That curve

The LG 55EC930V can’t do 4K. And while it would be tempting to knock it for this reason, we won’t. Currently, there is very little 4K content – save for the two TV series on Netflix and the odd video on YouTube. There’s no telling when more content...

LG 55EC930V review

 

Behind closed doors, in LG's high-security Seoul HQ, dubbed The Twin Towers, there's a white board screaming the message ‘2015 is the year of OLED!' It's underlined three times in red marker. There's a smiley face drawn alongside.

Lush, vibrant images; perfect pure black; WebOS smart platform; ultra-thin design.

Sparkles aside it's not overly bright; curved screen divisive; single tuners limit interaction; Full HD resolution.

Overall, the LG EC930V is an intriguing proposition, offering a level of depth and vibrancy that hasn't been seen before. If you’re looking for eye-candy you’ll find it in spades. There are several image caveats, and the relatively high price pitches...
