LG E8PUA series (OLED55E8PUA) review

 

Perfect blacks, stunning contrast ; Excellent color accuracy out of the box ; Impressive HDR performance ; Class-leading voice recognition ; Robust sound quality

Design and sound upgrades call for big premium

LG’s E8 series OLED is one of the best televisions produced to date. You’ll pay a premium over the less-expensive C8 and B8 series TVs, but if you want the glass, class, and upgraded bass, the E8 does a nice job of dressing up your media room while...

LG OLED55E8PUA

 

The LG OLEDE8P series of OLED TVs offer some of the best picture quality money can buy.

Excellent contrast and color range. Built-in Google Assistant. Striking design.

Very expensive. No Google Cast support.

The LG OLEDE8P series follows in the footsteps of LG's previous OLED TVs by offering one of the best pictures you can get at a very high price. At $3,300 for the 55-inch model we tested, this is one expensive TV, even if it's less pricey than the LG...

LG E8PUA 4K UHD TV review: Approaching TV nirvana

 

LG's 55-inch OLED smart TV is simply one of the best TVs money can buy. It delivers luxurious color, real blacks, smooth motion, and the best interface and remote in the business.

Fantastic picture, with velvety blacks ; The best TV remote and user interface in the industry ; Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG HDR support

Expensive (although prices are coming down) ; Limited panel lifespan prohibits heavy-duty use

Of all the TVs in all the test centers in all the world, LG had to ship the E8PUA to mine. Sony’s sound on its OLED’s (which use LG panels) is slightly better than LG’s, but it’s darn close, and LG’s Magic Remote and WebOS blow Sony’s equivalents out...

LG OLED55E8PLA review

 

With the same video tech as its sibling C8 model, can LG's E8 OLED TV justify the extra spend?

Class-leading picture ; Gorgeous design ; Well-equipped smarts ; Useful ThinQ features ; Easy to use ; Comprehensive picture mode options

Doesn’t justify premium price

The OLED55E8PLA is another stunning 2018 LG TV, even if it isn’t the very best value for money model in its line-up

Crisp image with easy to use controls. Good base s

 

Bought this for my son's Xmas present. He's 19 years old and uses his TV for gaming. He's impressed with it, so that says it's a good TV.
