LG 55EG920V

 

The 55EG920V is, excitingly, LG's cheapest 4K UHD OLED TV to date. The curved-screen 55-inch model is widely available for less than £2,250 – which is cheaper than the £2,500 or so required to secure LG's 55EG960V curved OLED set or the recently...

Mostly stunning picture quality ; Gorgeous super-thin design ; Excellent webOS smart TV interface

Occasional noticeable dimness at the image's edges ; Black levels drop off quite suddenly at times ; Average audio

LG 55EG960V

 

After waiting for what feels like decades for the first 4K OLED TV to arrive, we're now faced with our second one in as many weeks. What's more, the 55EG960V is substantially more affordable than the previously tested 65EC970V, so if it turns out to be...

Gorgeous, contrast-rich pictures ; Stunning super-slim design ; Slick webOS 2.0 operating system

Occasional colour flaws ; Needs great care with set up ; Doesn't yet support HDR, and will probably never support HDR via UHD Blu-ray

Best 52-60in TV £2500+, Awards 2015. This LG TV combines 4K Ultra HD resolution with OLED TV technology - the results are absolutely stunning...

Gorgeous 4K picture quality ; Proper deep blacks ; Bright, punchy whites ; Incredibly rich and subtle colours ; Superb level of detail and clarity ; Elegant design ; Intuitive interface

Upscaled standard definition could be crisper ; Sound could be more dynamic and open ; Pricey

Wow. The combination of 4K resolution and OLED TV technology is everything we hoped it would be

LG 55EG960V 4K OLED TV review: Setting the standard

 

It's been a long and winding road for OLED TVs. The display technology, which promises deeper blacks and richer colours than LED-backlit LCD tellies, started its consumer TV life in 2013 with the LG 55EM970V. Problem is, that telly cost £10,000. We're...

Excellent black levels, 4K picture quality clarity, great webOS 2.0 interface, remote's pointer operation

Colours can look off, auto brightness can falter, still expensive, only three HDMI ports

So is the LG EG960V's OLED panel better than an equivalent flagship LCD? For black levels, absolutely, it's as good as things get. For colour, it's a bit mixed – it loses some of the realism for the sake of saturation. That might be an odd compromise,...

LG 55EG960V 4K OLED TV review

 

4K Ultra HD and OLED? Together in one ultra-thin package? Thanks LG!

The future is here: this 4K OLED screen is the pinnacle of TV tech and is absolutely gorgeous to boot

LG 55EG920V review

 

The rise of OLED continues apace, as the price keeps dropping

Great OLED screen ; Excellent webOS 2.0 software ; Smart, svelte chassis

Can't cope with higher brightness ; UI can get slightly sluggish ; Still well over £2,000

One of the most affordable big-screen OLED TVs around, with all the deep blacks, vibrant colours and contrast levels you'd expect. HDR support and the excellent webOS software are the icing on the OLED cake – but that curvy screen may not be to...

Cancel summer – 4K Curved OLED is here.

Incredible realism ; Pure, bright whites ; Best black levels ever ; Reflection-free curve ; Now TV app

Pointer remote ; Plasticky stand ; Confusing WebOS ; High price ; Three HDMI

Is this is the best TV on the planet? Judged purely on picture quality, this 4K OLED has a jaw-dropping combination of total black, cracking colour, judder-free video, a reflection-free curve and an innate ability to make standard-def sources ripple...

LG 55EG9100 review

 

As the least-expensive OLED TV on the market, the LG 55EG9100 gives you all of the awesome picture quality advantages of that technology for a price that's a bit less than astronomical. It's a stretch to call it a "bargain" at $2,000 for 55 inches, but...

The LG 55EG9100 OLED TV's picture is better than any LCD or plasma TV. 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...

Albeit the most-affordable OLED TV yet, the 55EG9100 is still very expensive for a 55-inch TV. Unlike most high-end TVs it doesn't support HDR sources, and some LED LCDs can get brighter. Its 3D picture quality isn't great, and uniformity problems can...

No TV delivers the same level of picture quality for the price of the LG 55EG9100.
