LG EG960V uhd-OLED TV Review – The best view ever




LG’s EG960V has a curved OLED screen with uhd resolution. The sound does not make much impression and also the precision of the display without calibration could have been better. For most people, especially the high price will be a deal breaker, but if you compare the superb image quality with those of other expensive high-end models, the price is actually quite reasonable. No other TV has such a perfect zwartweegave, such an immense good contrast, such a good uniformity and such perfect viewing angles. Add to that the high-resolution uhd in and you get a picture that is much better than that of all other televisions.

In recent years, we have at almost any electronics fair prototypes can see OLED TVs with uhd resolution and every time the image was impressive. This could not wait until they were available, but unfortunately the step of a working prototype to a production model that also can be produced at acceptable cost, large and thus it is no manufacturer until now managed to uhd -oleds to get into the store.

Soon this will change and LG first uhd-OLED models will be for sale. The Korean brand already had a strong lead over the competition and markets for some time HD models, while the competition is still without OLED models do. Only archrival Samsung has briefly a model had in the stores, but because production costs remain too high to make money, this manufacturer has the production of OLED TVs quiet again put.

In this review we look at the 55 “version of the EG960V, which is equipped with a curved uhd display panel and will be on sale for 4,500 euros. His big brother, with a 65” screen, will be about 6600 euro must muster. Those are solid amount, but compared to the introductory price of the HD models several years ago, from 8000 to 9000 euros, is not so bad in every way. Moreover, LG had in recent years been able to continuously reduce production costs of OLED television sets and which has led to constant price falls. It is therefore to be expected that the uhd-end models are becoming cheaper.

For now, however, you must dig deep into their pockets for a EG960V, but you do get something in return: a curved uhd-OLED panel with a perfect black display, so the contrast is much higher than that of LCD TVs. The panel is equipped with a polarization film for 3D viewing through passive glasses, which you get two for the TV delivered. The TV runs on webOS 2, making operation very easy and intuitive to operate. The ease of operation is further enhanced by the included Magic Remote-motion remote control, which now includes more buttons, so you’re less dependent on menus.
