LG OLED55C8PTA review

 

This LG OLED proves that brainier is better...

The brightest and punchiest OLED has ever been ; Brilliantly natural and subtle ; Super-deep blacks now have more detail ; Amazing upscaling ; Super-stylish

Motion processing could be better ; Mediocre sound for the money

Small, across-the-board improvements make this the best OLED yet

LG OLED55C8PLA review

 

Small but significant improvements make this LG TV a superb all-rounder.

Brighter, punchier and sharper than last year’s models ; Fantastically natural images ; Amazing upscaling ; Loads of apps ; Stylish design

Motion processing could be better ; Setting menus are confusing ; Mediocre sound for the money

Individually small but collectively significant improvements make the C8 a superb all-rounder of a TV

LG C8 OLED (OLED55C8) review

 

LG's most affordable OLED handles motion like a pro

Alpha 9 Processor ; Lowest price for OLED ; webOS with AI

Small changes to the panel

The LG C8 OLED packs the majority of the innovation into its new Alpha 9 Processor, which might be a bit disappointing if you’re looking for some improvements to last year’s C7 OLED in terms overall brightness or vibrancy. However, the 2018 C8 is still...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Beautiful!

 

The tv shows just about the best picture money can buy, 4k movies look stellar, Netflix and amazon stream really well to it. Xbox One X really shines on this thing, just had a ton of fun testing out all the 4K stuff I could find. The speed of the OS is...

Great TV

 

Bought this TV a few weeks ago and am really happy with it. Great picture and even the sound is good despite not using a soundbar yet, but I am sure we will upgrade in the future for the full movie effect!

Oh LED!!

 

After looking at all the different TVs around I decided I really wanted an OLED this time. I was torn between the competition but decided in the end to go for the LG C8. The reason I did was purely for the lower gaming lag on this set. From the design...

Glad I took the OLED plunge

 

I was apprehensive about moving to OLED, but I'm glad I did. This TV is superb! Excellent black levels, brightness and colour accuracy. The webOS smart platform is so fast and easy to use, especially coming from Sony's slow and terrible Android OS.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

A good reason to buy a new TV.

 

I bought this oddly enough to watch MotoGP on via the browser and I'm pleased to confirm it works great. Having experienced how easy it was to get up and running using the intuitive menu system (LG have got this right in my opinion) I couldn't help but...

Unbelievable Picture Quality.

 

I bought this TV online on a Sunday. The television was ready for collection from the store the following Wednesday. The staff were extremely helpful helping me to my car.
