What is OLED?

OLED TVs use a revolutionary technology with self-lighting pixels for vivid color and infinite contrast. Experts have said it offers the "Best. Picture. Ever."

Perfect Black

LG OLED TV pixels switch off completely to achieve perfect black for infinite contrast, and contrast ratio is considered the key indicator of picture quality.

Intense Color

LG OLED TVs display a wide gamut of accurate colors. And because colors look best against a pure black background, images are now more vibrant and detailed.

Wide Viewing Angle

LG OLED TVs incomparable picture quality holds up even from wide viewing angles so now everyone can appreciate the color and clarity of OLED from any seat.

  Design  

OLED technology enables a design that is ultra thin and light. It's supremely elegant, and as lovely on a tabletop as it is wall-mounted.

4K Picture Quality

4K Picture Quality

Select LG OLED TVs offer 4K resolution with an incredible 8.3M pixels, four times that of Full HD. The result? Breathtaking clarity and fine picture details.

 webOS 2.0 

LG webOS TV is designed to be obviously simple, so that it is easier to learn and more fun to use. Now, all you have to do is relax as webOS 2.0 makes the TV experience simpler than before.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from top notch in style, features and picture quality I bought the 65EG9600 in December and was impressed greatly by picture quality. However, the sole issue I have is that a 'judder' issue exists wherein when the film camera pans from side to side for a length of time, say, for action sequences or panoramic landscape scenes, any moving images caught in the same frame seem to 'jump'. Tried rectifying the issue with the 'tru-motion' user interface for anti-judder, but after multiple settings, the issue persists. I don't know what this is caused by, would like some feedback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This TV has everything you need Have had this TV for 5 weeks and had to change Sattelite providers in order to get the 4K experince for sports, movies and other programing. Great in a large room and can be viewed well at a large angle. Easy to set up and use right out of teh box. Components hook up easily and you are in for a great viewing experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV available 4/25/16 I've had my LG EG9600 for about a month now and it is by far the best TV I have owned to date. The OLED display has the best color color range available. I have been a long time Samsung customer and have owned the following: HL-61A750, UN55C8000, UN55F8000, PN60F8500. I am completely impressed with the responsiveness of Web Os and the quality of the streaming of the native Netflix with UHD 4K. This TV is a must have unless your holding out for the signature series. The only regret is not getting the 65" but I may still buy that one and move this set to another room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifelike Image I wasn't considering this one until I saw the on-screen demo. The image was so clear it was like being there, and the colors are so vibrant. By far, it's the best TV I've owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic TV! Bought this TV a month ago and absolutely love it! It has the best picture of any other TV we have ever had, and the curved screen helps with the viewing angle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from With external sound, this is Awesome As far as a video screen this is simply amazing. Read all the reviews, do the research, go see one in action...you will be amazed. It does take a while to get used to all the features of the magic remote and be comfortable. After 4 months I am still discovering how much this TV has to offer. Being an audiophile, I have to say the one negative is that the sound from the set itself is poor. Of course, there is no room in a thinline set for decent speakers, so an external soundbar or home theater is a must. We choose the LG 4.1 soundbar because of space requirements. I would give that a 4.5 of 5 star rating (it's difficult to set the subwoofer to a place which is both enough and not too much), but this brings the TV up to a solid 5...totally awesome/Excellent. In our home a 55" screen fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I could no tbe any happier The picture is OUSTANDING and the audio is just about perfect. I have a fair amount of hearing loss and the audio coming from the set couldn't be any better for me.

Does this TV have fuel play for gaming 

Asked by: stevenj
In your inquiry about the LG Curved OLED 4K Smart TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55EG9600, you asked, "Does this TV have fuel play for gaming". Did you mean "dual play"?. LG’s Dual Play technology works with any passive 3D TV and all LG TVs, including the 55EG9600 use passive 3D technology. Dual Play works with most current gaming systems or even older consoles as long as it is a split-screen game. Dual Play uses two pairs of special glasses AG-F400DP, so you will need to purchase those as well...^IFV

Will this tv support HDR or Dolby Vision

Asked by: Marty Zywicki
The Curved OLED 4K Smart TV - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65EG9600 supports the HDR 10 bit standard used by Amazon Prime Instant Video's HDR streams, and which is likely to be used when Netflix flicks the switch on its own HDR distribution. It does not support Dolby Vision which is 12 bit, LG's 2016 OLED lineup will be the first to support both formats...^IFV
