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

 

The LG 55EA9800 curved OLED HDTV is the most impressive display we've ever tested. At $9,000, 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.

Is it Worth it?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...

LG 55EA980 55″ Curved OLED HDTV

 

For the past decade, we've been hearing about a miraculous new technology called OLED that will reshape our lives. Both Samsung and LG now produce and sell OLED TVs, which cost around $10,000 retail - in both flat and curved form factors.

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 3D OLED HDTV

 

It costs a bundle, has a relatively small screen, and isn't perfect. But buyers will be rewarded with a picture that, in the ways most important to enthusiasts, is unequaled by any other type of consumer display.

Astonishing blacks; Crisp, clean detail; Exceptionally bright 3D

Poor dark-gray uniformity; Expensive for a 1080p set

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 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...
