LG C8 TV Review

 

This is almost certainly the best TV we'll see this year

Expert review by : What Hi-Fi? (whathifi.com)

LG OLED55C8PLA review

 

Small but significant improvements make this LG TV a superb all-rounder.

Brighter, punchier and sharper than last year’s models ; Fantastically natural images ; Amazing upscaling ; Loads of apps ; Stylish design

Motion processing could be better ; Setting menus are confusing ; Mediocre sound for the money

Individually small but collectively significant improvements make the C8 a superb all-rounder of a TV

LG C8 OLED (OLED55C8) review

 

LG's most affordable OLED handles motion like a pro

Outstanding OLED TV for the price

 

Bought this to replace an old 46" Bravia LED and the picture quality and clarity is amazing. The OLED's are far superior to the QLED's and there is no back light issues with the C8. The sound from the speakers is very good. The magic remote is easy to...

Amazing quality picture - easy to set up

 

I had been keeping an eye on the LG Oleds. Went for the C8 with an SJ8 sound bar. It really is an excellent screen that lives up to the reviews and is easy to set up and control. The speed of the processor is amazing and makes Netflix selections a...
