Rated 5 out of 5 by skiracer Deepest Black
Having owned a plasma tv in the past I wasn't sure how this LG would compare. Having owned this LG for about two weeks it beat my plasma in every way. From the deepest blacks to very crisp colors this is the best I have ever seen.

Pricing is still a little high for the size, but picture quality is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MichaelAggie Excellent Picture, Average Sound Quality
Overall, I would recommending this TV as the picture is outstanding. However, it is expensive and for the price I would have expected a better internal speaker (dropping that much money on a TV leaves little left for more additions right away).
I look forward to these dropping a lot in price and taking over the market. I would love to get a GIANT one of these in a few years for this price or cheaper! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick99 Best Picture Quality
After about 3 trips back and forth to some local retailers we decided to go with the LG OLED. I will admit the store models looked terrible (torched from store settings) and the 4K variants from other companies looked much better in person but I could not ignore the resounding reviews and positive feedback about how OLED was the best TV. My wife at this time was unconvinced and wanted to go with a 4K LED but finally gave up a heck of a good fight. Once we set up the tv and adjusted the settings I have not heard one peep out of her about the lack of 4K or picture quality And are we happy with our decision. The picture is astounding and I have never seen better. Do not be deterred by the 1080p only for some of the models, you would have to have some of the upper end LED 4k versions and perfect content to even notice a difference in my opinion and that is even debatable.
Explosions, fires, lights in dark scenes look so realistic its unlike anything I have seen. The OLED tech really does make a difference. You have to see it to believe it. Purchasing this set and watching a night time car chase scene, LOST episode, House of Cards, etc and you will be happy with your choice. Cannot wait for 2015 NFL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff24 What a great picture!
I would highly recommend this tv. Here's the reasoning:
- Outstanding picture quality. I sit about 10 feet away from it, so the resolution is less important than the contrast ratio. That's what makes this TV so good. If you're going to be 5 feet away, go 4K, but over 8 feet, I'd take this TV in a heartbeat.
- TV is extremely light making it easier to install.
- The magic remote works great. Setup to Netflix and Amazon without an issue.
- Picture color is great after calibrating to cnet values.
- The curve limits glare.
- Not VESA mount in the back - just 2 screws. I did a custom install with Velcro and the 2 screws and because the tv is so light, it worked fine.
- Price - you're paying for the picture quality, but could pay 1/2 for a 4K.
- Size limitations. If you need bigger than 55in, then you're left to upgrade to 4K and spend 4x as much.
I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. Love the picture quality and I watch enough TV to marvel at it daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ssddtanya Great TV and picture quality
OLED is great TV with great picture quality. It's the next best thing other than Plasma TV. It's only TV that black is black. Very thin, light and curve is not too obvious. It's come with 3D and it's work great. The TV apps need more update but overall its better then other curve TV out there. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Waxi Great picture
I was looking to buy a 4k TV but when I compared the 4k to this model I decided to get the LG OLED. I would recommend this TV to anyone looking for a quality TV. I had no trouble in setting it up right out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GC Excellent picture, very happy I bought this one
I did my research and read countless reviews and the OLED tech seemed to be the one I wanted for over a year. I saw a new 4k tv that looked great and had good reviews and realized the price was the same as this OLED (price has dropped) which I had wanted when it first came out, but couldn't justify the cost. Anyway, the picture quality is as good as reviewers said and I couldn't be happier. Watching TV is such a joy right now and I find I want to rewatch everything I have ever seen to see the difference. I had heard about the judder issues and I have not noticed that at all. There are times (very rare actually) when the picture losses the striking detail when the camera pans or moves, but that could just as easily be put down to a slowing of the internet and not the TV not having enough processing power. OLED is king! for blacks and contrast which I find to be the biggest difference in picture quality and the reason I bought this TV over all the others. It isn't perfect, but technology never is and I can live with the LG app store being just okay(every major app I wanted was preinstalled anyway so I don't use the App Store), or the remote has twice froze on me (have to turn TV off and wait a few seconds, or even take batteries out and then put back in), The TV sometimes will forget my calibrated settings on Expert picture mode--I don't know if it automatically does this if I press the sport mode or what but it has happened a couple of times and is kind of a hassle to put back. Anyway, still the best TV, by a wide margin, I have ever owned. I would highly recommend this product, and especially since the price has dropped to be competitive with all the 4k models.
