LG OLED55C8PLA review

 

Small but significant improvements make this LG TV a superb all-rounder.

Brighter, punchier and sharper than last year’s models ; Fantastically natural images ; Amazing upscaling ; Loads of apps ; Stylish design

Motion processing could be better ; Setting menus are confusing ; Mediocre sound for the money

Individually small but collectively significant improvements make the C8 a superb all-rounder of a TV

LG C8 OLED (OLED55C8) review

 

LG's most affordable OLED handles motion like a pro

Alpha 9 Processor ; Lowest price for OLED ; webOS with AI

Small changes to the panel

The LG C8 OLED packs the majority of the innovation into its new Alpha 9 Processor, which might be a bit disappointing if you’re looking for some improvements to last year’s C7 OLED in terms overall brightness or vibrancy. However, the 2018 C8 is still...

Exceeded my expectations!

 

Had this for a few weeks now. Dead easy to set up. Picture superb, enough content that really shows the benefit of HD. Sound is better and perfectly good without any additional speakers. Navigation with voice activation does work

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Fantastic in every way

 

I have been impressed with the clarity and depth of the picture. The blacks (by definition the absence of colour) are extreme and really enhance picture quality. I bought the PLA version because of the extra processor speed and am not disappointed....

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Great picture, fast operation

 

Picture quality is excellent with good natural colours and contrast. The OS and processor is really snappy too allowing the TV to turn on in a few seconds. Netflix starts up in a couple seconds and a 4k show is buffered and playing in under a second...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Picture/remote/installation = top banana

 

Just hurdles 10 years into the future to get back in the game and oh boy I made a good move. It might not sound great to some people who don't like to play with the settings/features on a tv BUT with this tv it's easy to do with the "magic remote" and...
