LG OLED55B8PLA Review | Trusted Reviews


LG OLED55B8PLA review: Say hello to the cheapest OLED TV LG has ever released

Great price for an OLED TV ; Typically good OLED picture quality ; Beautiful design

Picture quality falls short of step-up LG 2018 OLED models ; Not the brightest with HDR sources ; Needs care with set up

While not quite as good as LG's more expensive OLED TVs for 2018, the OLED55B8PLA still retains more than enough OLED picture quality DNA to look like a serious bargain.

LG OLED55B8PLA review


The most affordable 2018 OLED TV we've seen so far this year - but is it a true bargain?

Rich, refined colour palette ; 'Lights-out' black levels ; A benchmark user experience ; Voice control support ; Price ; Vast HDR format support - including Dolby Vision

More expensive 2018 LG models offer slight picture improvements ; Peak brightness second to Samsung QLEDs

The cheapest 2018 LG OLED is also one of the best-value TVs we’ve seen this year

Amazing tv


"Was super happy with the purchase of this tv, the picture was very crisp and very easy to set up. All settings are set to default so definitely worth doing some research on the best settings for you to really get the most out of the tv. "

LG OLED55B8SLC 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD OLED TV with HDR


"This TV is absolutely fantastic. The range of colours, the depth of field and almost 3-D type version gives a stunning viewing experience. Some reviews have said that the OLED screen is quite reflective and room lights and reflections from windows can...
