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

 

The first 4K OLED TV to hit the market, the LG 55EG960V has a lot to shout about. Great blacks, rich colours and a lovely design are all here, but then

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 55EG960V review

 

Cancel summer – 4K Curved OLED is here.

Incredible realism ; Pure, bright whites ; Best black levels ever ; Reflection-free curve ; Now TV app

Pointer remote ; Plasticky stand ; Confusing WebOS ; High price ; Three HDMI

You can keep your Quantum Dots and your QLED, ditch your Deep Colour and go hang your HDR; OLED is here, now, and it's deserves some serious attention. The alpha male of TVs comes to us this time in a slightly smaller package than the previous OLED...

LG 55EG960V 4K OLED TV review

 

4K Ultra HD and OLED? Together in one ultra-thin package? Thanks LG!

The future is here: this 4K OLED screen is the pinnacle of TV tech and is absolutely gorgeous to boot

LG 55EG960V

 

After waiting for what feels like decades for the first 4K OLED TV to arrive, we're now faced with our second one in as many weeks. What's more, the 55EG960V is substantially more affordable than the previously tested 65EC970V, so if it turns out to be...

Gorgeous, contrast-rich pictures ; Stunning super-slim design ; Slick webOS 2.0 operating system

Occasional colour flaws ; Needs great care with set up ; Doesn't yet support HDR, and will probably never support HDR via UHD Blu-ray

LG 55EG960V review

 

Best 52-60in TV £2500+, Awards 2015. This LG TV combines 4K Ultra HD resolution with OLED TV technology - the results are absolutely stunning...

Gorgeous 4K picture quality ; Proper deep blacks ; Bright, punchy whites ; Incredibly rich and subtle colours ; Superb level of detail and clarity ; Elegant design ; Intuitive interface

Upscaled standard definition could be crisper ; Sound could be more dynamic and open ; Pricey

Wow. The combination of 4K resolution and OLED TV technology is everything we hoped it would be

LG 55EG960V (EG960) Ultra HD 4K OLED TV Review

 

LG finally release an Ultra HD 4K OLED TV in the UK but was the 55EG960V worth the wait? You bet it was!

Absolute blacks ; Superb dynamic range ; Remarkable contrast ratio ; Reference greyscale and colour accuracy ; Excellent video processing ; Great design and build quality ; Impressive smart platform ; Highly effective remote ; Very good sound

No HDR support ; Colour space could be wider ; Connections too close to edge ; Input lag high for serious gamers

Is the LG 55EG960V perfect? No of course not, no consumer product will ever be perfect, that's just an unrealistic expectation. We still use a Pioneer Kuro as our main TV, which was considered the reference point for years, but even that had issues....

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.

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...
