LG B7 series, its cheapest OLED TVs, will match picture quality of its most expensive

 

OLED TVs from LG deliver the best image quality we've ever tested, and in 2017 that picture gets even better. Now we just have to wait for pricing.

LG B7 OLED (OLED55B7P) Review: The Entry-Level OLED to Buy

 

The LG B7 OLED is a smart pick for anyone who wants to get an OLED television without paying the usual astronomical prices that OLED commands. The display offers plenty to love, from vibrant color to pixel-level dimming, and punches above its weight in...

Unbeatable price for OLED ; Very good display quality ; Support for multiple HDR formats ; WebOS 3.5 is a solid choice for smart TV

OLED display struggles with shadowy detail ; Not as vibrant as LCD ; Disappointing audio quality

The LG B7 OLED brings the stunning quality of LG's OLED displays to your living room for a much more palatable price, and doesn't cut many corners along the way.

LG OLED55B7V review

 

The LG OLED55B7V is an outstanding buy. OLED display technology gives you the best possible picture quality, and the B7 is the most affordable OLED TV in LG's 2017 range. It's super-stylish too too, with its blade-thin screen. It has superior audio and...

We love OLED, and the LG B7 is the most affordable OLED of 2017. If you can stretch to this kind of money, we'd urge you to consider this TV instead of Samsung's overpriced QLED range . It's a better buy than the Sony XE93 too, and at least a match for...

LG OLED55B7V

 

LG OLED55B7V review: this TV was already great in 2017, but in now it's half the price, which makes it an absolute bargain.

Excellent blacks and contrast ; Improved shadow detailing ; Vibrant yet accurate colours ; Supremely low input lag

Imperfect motion processing for interlaced broadcast ; Peak brightness insufficient for impactful HDR

The LG OLED55B7V is bettered in performance terms by most of LG’s 2018 OLED models. However, the fact that you can now get a 55-inch B7 for just £1300 makes it arguably the biggest bargain of this or any other TV season.

LG OLED55B7V review

 

The most affordable 2017 LG OLED is also the pick of the range

Awesome OLED picture ; Natural presentation ; Supports all HDR formats ; Neat, unfussy design ; Great for gaming

Sony A1 is a punchier performer

The B7 (along with its twin, the C7) is the sweetest spot of LG’s 2017 OLEDs and a great premium choice

LG OLED B7 (OLED55B7V) review

 

This mid-range OLED has all your HDR needs covered

Excellent all-round image quality ; Elegant design ; HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision support ; Great smart platform

Monophonic onboard audio ; No Dolby Atmos passthrough for Dolby TrueHD ; Silver bezel can distract

LG hits the sweet spot with the B7. For a mid-range price you get a high brightness OLED panel in a stylish design, offering immersive 2160p image quality. With support for all three key HDR formats catered for, plus Freeview Play, it’s an easy set to...

LG OLED55B7V (B7 OLED) review: Another brilliant OLED TV from LG

 

LG has refined its OLED TV family for 2017 – and the OLED55B7V doesn't put a pixel wrong

Perfect blacks and infinite contrast ; Supports four different HDR formats ; Extremely low latency for gaming

Motion hiccups on interlaced video ; Limited peak brightness for HDR ; Dolby Atmos decoder doesn't support True HD

As hard as it is to believe, LG has actually found ways to improve the already awesome picture quality on last year's OLEDs. At £3,000, the OLED55B7V is by no means cheap, but if you’re looking for the best all-around performance there is, then this...

LG 55B7 4K OLED TV Review

 

LG's B7 might technically be their entry-level 4K OLED TV but with the same features and picture quality as the higher-end models, why pay the extra...

Superb blacks and contrast ratio ; Excellent dynamic range ; Impressive image accuracy ; Improved detail just above black ; Effective video processing ; Dolby Vision support ; Attractive design ; Very low input lag ; Price

Very minor banding just above black ; Sideways inputs too close to edge

The LG B7 makes a mockery of any suggestion that it's an entry-level model by offering an impressive design coupled with great features and performance. It has the ultra-slim shape, minimalist appearance and classy finish of a high-end TV and more...
