Adding the actual color of BLACK to the pixels enhances the images far more clear than any leading competition.

LG EC9300 series review:
OLED TV: Best. Picture. Ever.
THE GOOD / The LG 55EC9300 OLED TV's picture betters that of any LCD or plasma TV, with perfect black levels and exceedingly bright whites. It's equally adept in bright and dark rooms, showed accurate color, and looks better from off-angle than any LED LCD. Its 1080p resolution is plenty for a 55-inch screen. The TV looks striking in person, with organic curves and an insane 0.25-inch depth on most of its body.
THE BAD / Albeit the most-affordable OLED TV yet, the 55EC9300 is still very expensive for a 55-inch TV. Its video processing and color accuracy don't measure up to that of the best TVs, and the curved screen introduces some artifacts.
THE BOTTOM LINE / The 55-inch LG 55EC9300 offers the world-beating picture quality of OLED TV for the lowest price yet.
Videophiles who mourn the loss of plasma, take heart: OLED is better, and thanks to LG it's finally getting cheaper.
The LG 55EC9300 is the cheapest OLED TV yet--the 11-inch Sony XEL-1 from 2008 doesn't count--but $2,500 for 55 inches is still really expensive. (In Australia it's AU$3999 and the model is the EC930T.) On the other hand, considering that its 2013 predecessor launched for five times as much, it's great progress and around the same price as other flagship-level 55-inch TVs, like Samsung's JS9000 SUHD.
But what about 4K, you ask? First off, that resolution is a waste at this screen size unless you're sitting very close...
LG EG9600 series review:
Like a pure-bred, its pricy, flashy, and a bit eccentric – but this 4K OLED looks awesome.
- The LG 65EG9600 is better than 98% of the televisions we tested.
- It is better than 99% of the televisions we have tested under $9,000.
- It is better than 92% of the UHD televisions we have tested.
- It is better than 100% of the 3D televisions we have tested.
The TV industry is a cutthroat competition these days, with constantly changing players. 4K/UHD is on the rise, plasma is dead, and even empires of physical media are falling like—ahem—a House of Cards.
If you're in the market for a new set, though, you simply can't do better than OLED. Though it's still a fledgling technology, OLED is already changing the game, promising near-perfect contrast and razor-thin screens. And with 4K resolution looking like it's here to stay, a 4K OLED—like LG's 65EG9600 (65EG960V in Europe, MSRP $8,999)—simply can't be beat.
Though there are cheaper 4K TVs on the market, OLED tech is still the undisputed king of the ring. This is the best TV we've tested so far this year—in fact, its only competition comes in the form of LG's other 4K OLED—the flagship EC9700. After days of testing, we still have to give the nod to the EC9700, but it's only by the slimmest of margins.
Despite this, there are a number of areas where the EG9600 series is superior to its older brother. For one, you get the updated, speedier webOS 2.0 smart platform as well as an array of future-proof features...
LG EG9600 series review:
LG’s 4K OLED TV is, once again, the best television that money can buyHIGHS
- Perfect black levels, bright whites, incredible contrast
- Ultra-slim design is more fetching than ever
- Supports HDR via streaming video apps
- WebOS 2.0 is a winner
- Best off-axis picture on the market
- No HDMI 2.0a support (no HDR via HDMI)
- Only 3 HDMI ports instead of 4 on last year’s
- No Wi-Fi 802.11AC support for high speeds
- Some screen uniformity quirks
- Settings need tweaking for best results
There is no such thing as a perfect television, and there probably won’t be one soon. The LGEG9600 4K UHD OLED TV we review here is no exception to that statement — it has some flaws – but having weighed the criteria, tallied the scores, and put it all into perspective, it is clear to me that LG’s flagship TV deserves the awards and accolades it has been receiving for offering the best picture quality available, despite some rumblings you might stumble on while researching the TV online....
LG EG9600 series review:
King of TVs comes at princely price
THE GOOD / The LG EG9600 OLED TV's picture betters 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 video processing, and looks better from off-angle than any LED LCD. The TV looks striking in person, with organic curves and an insane 0.25-inch depth on most of its body.
THE BAD / The EG9600 is more expensive than pretty much any other TV of its size. Its video processing, screen uniformity and color accuracy aren't quite as impressive as the best TVs. The curved screen introduces some artifacts, and 3D is finicky. The TV lacks support for future HDR sources via HDMI.
THE BOTTOM LINE / The incredibly expensive OLED-powered LG EG9600 series delivers the best picture quality we've ever tested.
If you've ever seen an OLED TV, it should come as no surprise that LG's EG9600 is the best-performing television I've ever tested. I called its predecessor -- the 55EC9300, the first OLED TV I reviewed -- the "best TV ever" last year. The new, more expensive version is indeed even better.
LG's 2015 OLED TV adds 4K resolution and a couple of other tweaks, but in my side-by-side comparison it looked very similar to the previous version, and better than any other TV in my comparison lineup, hands-down...
LG EC9700 series review:
There's simply no debate: This is, hands down, the finest TV money can buyHIGHS
- Best picture quality ever
- Excellent webOS UI
- Superb color
- Gorgeous design
- Best TV-based 3D experience
- Extremely expensive
- Curve not for everyone
By now, you probably already know that Ultra High Definition (UHD) content has four times the resolution of 1080p TV. What you might not know is that the rest of what UHD means, from color gamut to high dynamic range (HDR) lighting, is still being decided by a group called the UHD Alliance. And that’s a scary prospect for anyone looking at a new UHD TV right now, like LG’s $10,000 65EC9700 4K OLED.
Will it and other UHD TVs be rendered obsolete? Even deep-pocketed early adopters have to wonder if dropping that kind of cash on a TV makes sense if it won’t be able to hang under a new standard...
