Rated 5 out of 5 by from good picture i bought 30 days go i like it nice picture quality sound is ok you need a sound bar.
Date published: 2019-07-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not perfect This is my second try at this set, as a cable issue burned out the first one (HDMI ports) and I exchanged it for another new one. I really like the picture, but there are a few occasional hiccups in the reception of picture and sound - lasting only a split second. They occur both with cable signal as well as with my new 4K LG blue ray player. They are on different HDMI's. My other complaint is that the HDMI ARC input via HDMI #2 doesn't connect/sync with sound bar. Had this issue on the prior set. I even bought top of the line LG sound bar to address compatibility issue. I connect via optical cable, that seems to work okay, but wondering if the ARC connection would work better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG...WOW...OLED ! ! I have now had the 65" OLED for 10 days and cannot tell you what a great viewing TV this is. Sure beats my 4 yr old Samsung UHD hands down. While the TV is pricy, it is worth every penny. The colors are vivid and true. Plus the black, now thats black!.. You think you are in a movie theatre watching the latest picture out. Even tho the speakers are the best we have ever had in a TV, I have pared this with Sonos sound bar and sub woofer.
