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

Great 4k HDR Tv


I bought this primarily for film watching and playing games. I have not been disappointed! Quality is stunning and once you set the optimal picture settings content looks fantastic.
