LG 55EG9600 4K OLED TV review

 

OLED picture quality is the best you can get, and LG's EG9600 is the finest one we've seen so far.

With that in mind, here’s the bottom line: OLED, while not perfect, is a superior display type, and the EG9600 is, overall, the best implementation we’ve seen of it yet. We’re as impressed as anyone with what’s been done to improve LED/LCD TVs in the...

At 55 inches, this LG is the OLED TV to beat

 

The cheapest OLED TV is no bargain, but at less than $2,000 it's actually affordable for a lot of people. If you want the joy of OLED without taking out another mortgage, this is your only option.

The LG 55EG9100 OLED TV's picture is better than any LCD or plasma TV. It's equally adept in bright and dark rooms, showed accurate color, and looks better from off-angle than any LED LCD. Its 1080p resolution is plenty for a 55-inch screen. The TV...

Albeit the most-affordable OLED TV yet, the 55EG9100 is still very expensive for a 55-inch TV. Unlike most high-end TVs it doesn't support HDR sources, and some LED LCDs can get brighter. Its 3D picture quality isn't great, and uniformity problems can...

No TV delivers the same level of picture quality for the price of the LG 55EG9100.

LG 55EG9600

 

OLED technology once again produces the best picture possible, though at a very high price, in LG's gorgeous curved 4K EG9600 HDTV series. If you want the latest tech, and money is no object, this television should be at the top of your list.

Top-notch picture quality with perfect blacks and "infinite" contrast. Accurate colors. Loads of connected features. Attractive design.

Very expensive. Only three HDMI ports.

Once again, LG has made a superlative HDTV thanks to OLED technology with the EG9600 series, and once again it's very expensive. The picture quality, feature set, and design are all top-notch, but the $7,000 price tag for the 65-inch model ($5,500 for...

LG EG9600 series review

 

If you've ever seen an OLED TV, it should come as no surprise that LG's EG9600 is the best-performing television I've ever tested. I called its predecessor -- the 55EC9300 , the first OLED TV I reviewed -- the "best TV ever" last year. The new, more...

The LG EG9600 OLED TV's picture betters that of any LCD or plasma TV we've seen, with perfect black levels and exceedingly bright whites. It's equally adept in bright and dark rooms, showed accurate color, excellent uniformity and solid video...

The EG9600 is more expensive than pretty much any other TV of its size. Its video processing, screen uniformity and color accuracy aren't quite as impressive as the best TVs. The curved screen introduces some artifacts, and 3D is finicky. The TV lacks...

LG 55EG9600

 

LG's 2015 OLED TV adds 4K resolution and a couple of other tweaks, but in my side-by-side comparison it looked very similar to the previous version, and better than any other TV in my comparison lineup, hands-down.

A Review of the LG Electronics EG9600 4K Ultra HD 3D Curved Smart OLED TV Series – 55EG9600 & 65EG9600

 

Simply put, the LG 65EG9600 65-inch Art Slim Curved OLED 4K TV may just be the single best 4K television of the entire year 2015 so far. This seems like a seriously boastful statement that might be a bit hard to qualify but in this case, it's hard to...

Extraordinary perfect black rendering ; Single pixel-level light and dark control ; Exquisite color coverage (10-bit color!) ; Beautiful design and functionality in webOS 2.0 ; Supports HDR in streaming content

No HDR support via HDMI 2.0a ; Only 3 HDMI ports ; Very, very expensive ; No high speed WiFi support (ac)

If you have the money to spend freely on this TV’s price tag, then the LG EG9600 will give you display quality better than anything anyone else you know has, unless they own the same TV.

LG 55EG9100 TV Review: Amazing OLED Picture, Saner Price

 

The LG 55EG9100 delivers an excellent 1080p picture capable of rendering brilliant pyrotechnics and deep blacks. Even with the relatively lower price tag of $2,000, however, forward-looking buyers may be more interested in 4K ultra-HD models that...

Excellent contrast ; Great off-axis viewing ; Spiffy remote control

Doesn't support 4K resolution or HDR ; Sparse built-in streaming support

The LG 55EG9100 provides a best-in-class OLED picture with jaw-dropping viewing angles, but for the price we'd like 4K resolution.

LG 55EG960T OLED UHD TV

 

A trifecta of emerging technologies, all at a price that challenges lesser rivals

OLED panel delivers outstanding blacks and bright colours ; webOS smart TV interface is easy to use and easier to navigate with one remote control ; Support for UHD and six-step upscaling engine ; Bite-the-back-of-your-hand good looks

Low resolution content is still upscaled with image noise

LG 55EG920V

 

The 55EG920V is, excitingly, LG's cheapest 4K UHD OLED TV to date. The curved-screen 55-inch model is widely available for less than £2,250 – which is cheaper than the £2,500 or so required to secure LG's 55EG960V curved OLED set or the recently...

Mostly stunning picture quality ; Gorgeous super-thin design ; Excellent webOS smart TV interface

Occasional noticeable dimness at the image's edges ; Black levels drop off quite suddenly at times ; Average audio
