LG B8 OLED TV

 

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 technology, and has excellent motion handling with an instantaneous response time. The image also...

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

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

LG OLED55B8 4K HDR OLED TV review

 

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 (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 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 price is the real clincher, however. If you’ve been tempted by OLED’s charms, then the OLED65B8 is the perfect meeting point between price, performance and big-screen HDR thrills.

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....

LG OLED B8 Series

 

This is LG's low end OLED TV produced by using a weak image processor. Its weakness becomes apparent when a movie has a lot of shadowy dark screens, patches of the area goes fuzzy, and in 4k videos the movement of the sea waves is not perfectly...
