LG 55EG960V 4K OLED TV review: Setting the standard

 

It's been a long and winding road for OLED TVs. The display technology, which promises deeper blacks and richer colours than LED-backlit LCD tellies, started its consumer TV life in 2013 with the LG 55EM970V. Problem is, that telly cost £10,000. We're...

Excellent black levels, 4K picture quality clarity, great webOS 2.0 interface, remote's pointer operation

Colours can look off, auto brightness can falter, still expensive, only three HDMI ports

So is the LG EG960V's OLED panel better than an equivalent flagship LCD? For black levels, absolutely, it's as good as things get. For colour, it's a bit mixed – it loses some of the realism for the sake of saturation. That might be an odd compromise,...

LG 55EG960T OLED UHD TV

 

A trifecta of emerging technologies, all at a price that challenges lesser rivals

OLED panel delivers outstanding blacks and bright colours ; webOS smart TV interface is easy to use and easier to navigate with one remote control ; Support for UHD and six-step upscaling engine ; Bite-the-back-of-your-hand good looks

Low resolution content is still upscaled with image noise

LG 55EG9600

 

OLED technology once again produces the best picture possible, though at a very high price, in LG's gorgeous curved 4K EG9600 HDTV series. If you want the latest tech, and money is no object, this television should be at the top of your list.

Top-notch picture quality with perfect blacks and "infinite" contrast. Accurate colors. Loads of connected features. Attractive design.

Very expensive. Only three HDMI ports.

Once again, LG has made a superlative HDTV thanks to OLED technology with the EG9600 series, and once again it's very expensive. The picture quality, feature set, and design are all top-notch, but the $7,000 price tag for the 65-inch model ($5,500 for...

LG 55EG9600 4K OLED TV review

 

OLED picture quality is the best you can get, and LG's EG9600 is the finest one we've seen so far.

With that in mind, here’s the bottom line: OLED, while not perfect, is a superior display type, and the EG9600 is, overall, the best implementation we’ve seen of it yet. We’re as impressed as anyone with what’s been done to improve LED/LCD TVs in the...

LG EG9600 series review

 

If you've ever seen an OLED TV, it should come as no surprise that LG's EG9600 is the best-performing television I've ever tested. I called its predecessor -- the 55EC9300 , the first OLED TV I reviewed -- the "best TV ever" last year. The new, more...

The LG EG9600 OLED TV's picture betters that of any LCD or plasma TV we've seen, with perfect black levels and exceedingly bright whites. It's equally adept in bright and dark rooms, showed accurate color, excellent uniformity and solid video...

The EG9600 is more expensive than pretty much any other TV of its size. Its video processing, screen uniformity and color accuracy aren't quite as impressive as the best TVs. The curved screen introduces some artifacts, and 3D is finicky. The TV lacks...

LG 55EG9600

 

LG's 2015 OLED TV adds 4K resolution and a couple of other tweaks, but in my side-by-side comparison it looked very similar to the previous version, and better than any other TV in my comparison lineup, hands-down.
