LG B8 OLED TV review: The best high-end value of 2018


It's not cheap, but LG's "entry-level" OLED outperforms any LCD we've tested.

The LG B8 has spectacular image quality, second only to LG's more-expensive OLED TVs among models we've tested. It delivers perfect black levels, superb uniformity, wide viewing angles, accurate color and a great bright-room picture. Its striking...

It can't get as bright as competing LCD TVs.

LG's entry-level OLED TV doesn't compromise picture quality.

LG B8 OLED Review (OLED55B8, OLED65B8)


The LG B8 is a 4k OLED TV with excellent picture quality, especially when viewed in a dark room. It can produce perfectly deep blacks due to the emissive technol...

Perfect deep blacks Almost no motion blur in sports and video games Very good picture quality when viewed at an angle

Brightness depends on screen content due to Automatic Backlight Limiter (ABL) Risk of permanent burn-in with long periods of static content

This is a remarkable TV for mixed usage. The LG B8 performs impressively well in almost every usage. It is great for movie watching in both SDR and HDR content. It has remarkable motion handling and low input lag that will satisfy gamers and sports...

LG B8 OLED TV review: Amazing OLED picture for a good price


LG's most affordable OLED TV is a great deal even if it's not perfect

, which offers similarly excellent color and better motion handling. But if you want an OLED TV on the (relatively) cheap, the LG B8 is a great choice.

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 B8 OLED (OLED55B8, OLED65B8) review


LG has given each of its OLED TVs in any annual range refresh the same picture quality. So, the only way you can differentiate between separate ranges is along purely design and/or sound quality lines. This has, in turn, limited the extent of the price...

Great price for OLED Good picture quality Gorgeous design Strong smart system

Lacks a little brightness Doesn’t use latest processing Dark scene video noise Slightly soft HD upscaling

LG has finally stumbled on a way to make its OLED TV technology substantially cheaper by using a less powerful video processor. The B8 OLED range uses a so-called Alpha 7 chip similar in power and scope to the processors used in LG’s 2017 models rather...

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

Expert review by : John Archer (



For the past few years, LG has pursued a policy of giving every OLED TV series in any given year's range more or less the same picture quality. For 2018, though, it tried something different. Its entry-level B8 TVs use a less powerful processor than...

LG B8 OLED (OLED65B8) review: This is an OLED bargain to be reckoned with


LG upgrades its 'entry-level' OLED TV for 2018 – and the results are sensational

True blacks, vibrant colours and wide viewing angles ; The most comprehensive HDR format support (HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision, Technicolor) ; Low input lag

Thin vertical streaks in very dark scenes ; HDR not as impactful as full-array local dimming LCD TVs ; Small risk of permanent burn-in with prolonged display of static logos

The LG B8 offers some welcome extra features over LG's 2017 OLEDs, but in our opinion, the number one reason to buy the 2018 model over the 2017 one is for the increased brightness in HDR Game Mode.

LG OLED55B8PLA television review

  (Rating Hidden)

Despite OLED TVs only being widely available for a few years they are no longer exclusively the reserve of the wealthy. The 55-inch LG OLED55B8PLA launched at a price that's only a few hundred pounds more than its predecessor cost a year after release....

Expert review by : Phil Hinton (



LG has been busy moving the OLED TV game on but unlike last year, the B8 seems to be pegged back from the rest of the family line-up with the use of a lower grade processor. But does that really...

Excellent black levels and shadow detail ; Stunning contrast performance with SDR content ; Very good HDR performance ; Dolby Vision and Atmos support ; HLG, HDR10 and Technicolour support ; WebOS smart system ; Dynamic Tone Mapping feature ; Excellent...

Some visible gradation issues when compared to A9 powered C8 ; Not much else at this price point!
