LG 65EC970V: Is OLED the real future of television tech?

 

A 4K Ultra HD TV capable of some of the most gorgeous pictures ever seen on a home screen.

Dark scenes look incredible ; Gorgeous design ; Excellent smart TV system

Needs careful set up ; Can’t be run very bright ; Uses last year’s webOS system

LG 65EC970V review

 

The first 4K OLED TV is finally here

Jaw-dropping design ; Unprecedented contrast performance ; webOS works brilliantly ; Surprisingly good sound

Limited HDR options ; Needs accurate set up ; Not exactly cheap ; UHD upscaling only solid

If you're lucky enough to have six grand to spare you're faced with a stark TV choice between the LG 65EC970V and the Samsung UE65JS9500. Whichever way your money ultimately goes, though, the bottom line is that the 65EC970V is another ground-breaking...

LG 65EC9700 review

 

Price of the first LG OLED 4K TV is $9,999

Marries OLED to 4K ; True black colors ; Subtle curve ; Friends don't have it

Still expensive ; Little 4K content

LG's 65-inch OLED 4K television lands it another 'world's first' victory. If you want to future-proof your entertainment center, this is the best. But it'll cost you.

LG 65EC970V review

 

LG continues to impress with its OLED TV tech...

Stunning contrast ; Sharp, crisp picture; ; Upscales high-def content well ; Gorgeous design ; Slick and user-friendly OS

Picture needs more subtlety ; No ITV player or All4

Another glorious advert for 4K, even if it isn’t the subtlest performer

LG 65EC970V OLED TV review

 

Technically impressive with superb image quality, but fiddly image adjustment is a small cause for concern

The LG65E970V is a technical marvel that requires a lot of fiddling and adjustment to achieve picture perfection, but even without adjustment, watching any movie with dark scenes and shadows is an utter joy and it's hard to imagine going back to a...

LG 65EC970V

 

The 65EC970V is a 65-inch UHD 4K television with a curved screen. But much more importantly than that, it also happens to use OLED screen technology rather than LCD or plasma. This makes it the first 4K OLED TV we've ever tested – and to say we're...

Unprecedented black level response ; Spectacular 3D ; WebOS remains a great smart interface

It's not HDR ready ; Upscaling could be better ; Some colour issues

LG 65EC9700

 

The 65-inch curved OLED LG 65EC9700 delivers an absolutely superb picture. In fact, it's one of the best televisions we've ever tested. But be prepared to pay for being on the cutting edge of HDTV tech.

Excellent picture. Perfect black levels. Loads of features. Attractive design.

Extremely expensive. Curved screen doesn't add much to the experience.

Power and Conclusions The 65EC9700's OLED screen is a bit of a power hog. Under normal viewing conditions, with all energy saving features disabled, it consumes 325 watts. With Energy Saving set to Minimum and in the automatic energy-saving APS picture...

LG 65EC9700 TV review

 

If you've got the cash and you want the best TV money can buy today, this is it.

Is this TV is a realistic purchase for you? Probably not. But at this tier of performance, “value” goes out the window. If I’m to rate a television based on its performance capabilities, execution of user interface, general ease of use, and overall...

LG 65EC970T Curved Ultra HD OLED TV: Australian Review

 

TVs are getting more and more advanced as this year goes on. We've seen curved screens, OLED panels and 4K pixel density popping up all over the place, from a bunch of different brands. But we haven't seen all three in one TV that you can actually go...

Unparalleled picture quality ; Beautiful design, attractive curve ; Excellent Ultra HD resolution

Expensive ; Reflective ; Curved screen not for everyone

I’ve always been more than a little sceptical of curved TVs, and while LG’s newest TV has done the most by far to convince me of the merits of the format, I remain unconvinced. The rational technology purchaser in me worries about having friends over...
