LG OLED55B6 review

 

LG's cheapest 4K OLED TV ever. Nuff said.

Often stunning picture quality ; Jaw-droppingly slim design ; Great smart TV system ; Affordable by OLED standards

Weak sound quality ; Clipping in bright areas ; Expensive by LCD standards ; Some motion issues

As the cheapest model in LG's 2016 4K OLED TV range, the $2,499 OLED55B6 lacks the build quality and design prowess of its more expensive siblings. Its sound is relatively flimsy, too. But crucially it still retains the same excellent smart TV system...

LG OLED55B6P

 

The OLEDB6P is LG's most affordable 4K HDR OLED TV series yet, and offers the superlative performance you can only get with an OLED panel.

Fantastic picture. Perfect black levels. HDR with wide color gamut.

WebOS is a bit light on apps. Fairly expensive.

LG has made another incredible television thanks to OLED technology. The perfect blacks and wide range of colors the panel can produce give the OLEDB6P series one of the best pictures available to consumers. OLED still carries a hefty premium, but the...

LG OLED55B6P

 

I expected the best picture quality ever, anchored by perfect black levels and viewing angles, along with expanded HDR compatibility for the widest access to the best video content available. I expected beautiful design and the thinnest panels around....

The LG B6 outperforms every other TV we've tested, with the exception of even more-expensive 2016 OLED TVs, which perform about the same. It evinced perfect black levels, wide viewing angles, accurate color and a brighter picture than last year. It's...

It's expensive.

LG's high-end 2016 OLED TVs deliver the best picture quality of any TV we've ever reviewed, and the B6 is the best value of the bunch.

LG OLED55B6

 

Those pesky folk at LG sure are making us wait for the brand's 2016 OLED TV range. We've been itching to get our hands and eyes on one of these new sets ever since they blew away the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January, but still...

LG OLED55B6P Review

 

You aren't going to find better picture quality than the LG OLED TVs. The OLED55B6P is an amazing TV. It looks great, it's incredibly thin, it has a great remote that is comfortable to use and it has an easy-to-navigate interface. This is definitely...

The picture quality is amazing.

It doesn't have 3D capabilities.

This OLED LED TV is less expensive than our top performer and boasts equally impressive picture quality. This is an excellent choice if you want to save a little money on an OLED TV.

LG B6 Review – Flat-Screen 2016 OLED 4K HDR Ultra HD TV (OLED65B6P , OLED55B6P)

 

In 2016, LG has so far released four different OLED 4K TV models to the market and they can be divided into two broader categories: The G6/E6 Picture-on-Glass “top-shelf” TVs with their extremely unique design, and the more aesthetically conventional...

Extraordinary picture quality and color ; Stunning black levels and pixel-perfect dimming ; Amazing brightness by OLED standards ; HDR-compatible for HDR10 and Dolby Vision ; WebOS 3.0 is superb ; Incredible design

Peak brightness doesn’t match the best LCD capacity ; No 3D features ; Sluggish input lag for games in particular

LG’s B6 is just about the best 4K OLED TV we’ve yet seen if all factors INCLUDING price are weighed together. The flagship LG 2016 G6 and the second-tier E6 models are superior performers by slight margin and offer truly stunning new physical designs...

LG B6 (OLED55B6V) UHD 4K TV Review

 

The B6 is LG's entry-level flat screen OLED TV with Ultra HD 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision and WebOS but how does it compare to the rest of their line-up?

Impressive black levels ; Superb dynamic range ; Accurate greyscale and colour gamut ; Excellent video processing ; Wide viewing angles ; Supports Dolby Vision ; WebOS is highly effective

Stutter with HDR content ; Macro blocking on some material ; CMS can cause artefacts ; No game mode for HDR

The LG B6 is an impressive Ultra HD 4K TV that demonstrates all the advantages of OLED technology with deep blacks and excellent contrast ratios. The out-of-the-box performance was very good wth an accurate greyscale and colour gamut that approached...
