What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable Finally got it several weeks ago and am still learning all the features. My wife and I are obsessive about image quality and we find ourselves wanting to re-view older shows and movies just to see them on this screen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OLED picture is one of the best. Been in use for one month and it has not let us down. We watch over the air free HDTV and it looks great. Still learning the features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great tv! We've had this about 3 weeks and totally love it. We set it up ourselves and have had no problem with it at all. We were told by a clerk at a Best Buy that we would need a sound bar but with this tv, the sound is great, no need for a sound bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! This is "hands down" the best TV I have ever owned! The quality of the picture is fantastic. The sound is wonderful. The viewing angles second to none. It is thinner than my cell phone for Petes' sake! I am over the moon with my new TV!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible picture Our last large screen TV is 10 years old; I had done a lot of research before buying and it paid off in picture quality and reliability. It is incredible how much flat screen technology has advanced in 10 years. Our new LG has an amazingly crisp picture with no color bleeding, incredible built in features and, not that I move it much, but it weighs a quarter of my previous flat screen. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Picture -Easy to set up I bought this TV a few weeks ago and found it extremely easy to set up and connect to my existing satellite system. The whole process took less than 15 minutes. The picture is superb and the 4k rendering is outstanding. This is my second 4K OLED LG set and I would recommend them to everyone.

I want a new OLED 55c8aua for gaming but will the new 2018s get burn in the screan from static images? this is major concern of mine, being that your TVs cost an arm and a leg. seems like all other oleds suffer from this.

Asked by: Tagnastick
Image retention/Burn In will result from static images being left for long periods of time on the LG C8AUA 4K HDR Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # OLED55C8AUA. Burn-in and image retention are possible on virtually any display. However, with an LG OLED TV, any risk of burn-in or image retention have been addressed through the use of technology that not only helps protect against damage to the screen but features self-healing properties so that any short-term image retention that may occur is quickly rectified. It is rare for an average TV consumer to create an environment that could result in burn-in. Most cases of burn-in in televisions is a result of static images or on-screen elements displaying on the screen uninterrupted for many hours or days at a time – with brightness typically at peak levels. So it is possible to create burn-in in almost any display if one really tries hard enough. And even if burn-in does occur from extreme usage, it can usually be mitigated within a short period of time by turning the display off for a while, and watching a few hours of varying content (such as your standard TV watching and channel-surfing). Additionally, LG OLED TVs come with special features and settings to preserve image quality and prevent burn-in and image retention. First, there is a screen saver feature that will turn on automatically if the TV detects that a static image is displayed on the screen after approximately two minutes. There are also two options – available in the Picture Mode Settings within the Smart Picture menu – that can be used to preserve image quality. The first of these is the Pixel Refresher feature that preserves the quality of the image on the display panel by resetting the TV so that it clears the pixels. This feature can be turned on when needed within the settings mentioned above. The second feature which is automatically employed is the Screen Shift feature which moves the screen slightly at regular intervals to preserve image quality...^IFV

Which Models have picture on glass?

Asked by: jmk1
LG OLEDs feature a Picture-on-Wall form factor, a Picture-on-Glass design, or a blade-slim design. At just 2.57mm thin in the 65-inch model, the 2017 LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W7 sticks directly on the wall, and features the Picture-on-Wall form factor as will the Wall Paper TV design W8PUA series which is yet to be released. The 2017 OLEDs that feature the Picture-on-Glass design are the E7 and G7 series TVs and the 2018 models that feature it are the E8PUA series OLEDs...^IFV
