LG 55EF9500

 

LG's EF9500 line of flat OLED HDTVs will give you some of the best 4K picture quality you can buy, at a still-very-high price.

Excellent picture quality. Impressively wide color range. Loaded with features.

Expensive. Only three HDMI ports.

Input Lag, Power, and Conclusions Input lag, the amount of time it takes for a display to update after receiving a signal, is less impressive. The 65EF9500 showed a relatively high 57.2-millisecond input lag. This is disappointing, but not surprising;...

The longer version? Maybe you have the money and like curved TVs. Because, let's face it, flat vs. curved is more of an aesthetic decision than anything else. Fine, get the 65EG9600 curved TV. Maybe you want a 55-inch TV instead. I'm not rich, so I'd...

The LG EF9500 OLED TV's picture quality is better than 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...

The EF9500 is more expensive than pretty much any other TV of its size. Its light output, video processing and some aspects of screen uniformity aren't quite as impressive as some other TVs.

If you have the money and want 55-inch or 65-inch TV today, you should buy the LG EF9500.

LG EF9500 series review

 

If you have the money, and you want a 65-inch TV, you should buy the LG 65EF9500. It has the best picture of any TV I've tested so far, and it's flat. For that reason alone I like it better than its curved counterpart, the EG9600 , which costs the same.

A Review Of The LG EF9500 4K OLED TV – 65EF9500 & 55EF9500

 

The much anticipated LG EF9500 has recently been released and become available for purchase, and boy was it worth the wait. For a while now, most OLED TV's have been of the curved variety, but for those of you (us included) that have been craving a top...

Stunning image quality thanks to OLED screen. ; Deep, rich blacks and infinite contrast thanks to “perfect black” technology. ; Wide viewing angle thanks to flat screen and OLED technology. ; High quality sound from Harman Kardon. ; Superior 3D image...

Slight image deterioration at high brightness levels. ; “Dim edges” issue. ; Some motion handling issues. ; Slight input lag issues.

The LG 65EF9500 produces superb visuals principally due to its OLED screen, flat as opposed to curved build, and proprietary perfect black technology. It comes with the latest WebOS 2.0 operating system giving the user easy access of the TV’s many...

LG 55EF950V

 

The image quality in HD is very good, while 4K images are excellent (though currently only sampled via a well known online video streaming service). Standard definition is a bit soft but is quite watchable.

The TruMotion system, for reducing blur & judder on fast moving subjects, seems a bit hit and miss, at least on the example I have and with the most recent software update. That said the I don't think it is really required as the motion handling is...

LG 55EF950V

 

Super Picture, really crisp/clear. Really black blacks. Pretty good sound for TV speakers. Lovely thin screen/surround. Internet capability.

Screen very shiny, so reflections can be an issue if not sighted in a good location. Very expensive - If you can wait until prices fall then this OLED TV is a good choice. Controls could be a bit more user friendly.
