LG TV Reviews 2017/2018

LG TVs are probably a study in contrast or how to serve both ends of the consumer/price spectrum. At this time, the brand must be basking in the rave reviews consumers have been giving its flagship OLED TV that has accomplished the feat of setting it apart in that niche. The OLED TV has been so big a hit that it is being touted as a revolutionary technology. By producing the very best 4K ultra HD TVs available right now in conjunction with its WebOS 3.0 platform, LG has enticed Smart TV aficionados to gravitate towards the brand.

How LG Stacks up Against other Brands

There are quite a number of close calls when making comparisons between LG and Samsung high-end TVs. In terms of picture quality, LG has an edge with its colour accuracy but then it falls just short of Samsung in black levels. The Smart TV interfaces also register a close call because the WebOS 3.0 keeps improving while Samsung’s Tizen is also a leap now from last year. Perhaps the pendulum would swing in favour of Samsung based on its more exciting User Interface. This may not apply to all models of the brand but then, LG sound quality trumps those of Samsung and Vizio in terms of bass, clarity and voice definition. We have to accord LG its deserved respect in terms of appearance and design quality where it inches ahead of both Samsung and Vizio.

What’s new in 2017

LG has maintained an excellent reputation throughout the past by manufacturing high quality televisions for the people in need at affordable prices. They are looking forward to continue that tradition throughout 2017 as well. In other words, LG would be releasing few impressive televisions to the market in 2017 and you will not have to spend a fortune to purchase them.

Out of the LG televisions that are expected to be released in 2017, LG Signature W7 holds a prominent place. This is a HDR OLED television that has the ability to deliver impressive 4K videos. This is a 65 inch television and you will be able to find an extremely thin screen, which measures about 2.57mm. Therefore, it can be called as a Wallpaper Television. The 4K resolution panel of this television is in a position to produce one billion colors. This is facilitated through HDR contrast and true blacks. On the other hand, LG has been able to enhance the peak brightness level up to 1,000 nits. In addition, it offers 99% DCI color space, which can deliver the best pictures ever by a LG television.

In addition to this model, LG is making plans to release a television that is powered by UHD Nano Cell as well. It has been provided with the model number SJ9500. LG has been using nano cell technology with the objective of producing better pictures. It seems like they have taken this technology to a whole new level through this latest television. SJ9500 is a super slim television, which is equipped with a 55 inch screen. The screen of this television is extremely thin and it measures about 6.9mm at the thinnest point. The crescent shaped stand has also contributed a lot towards the beautiful appearance of this television.

The most impressive features that can be found in LG SJ9500 is its impressive viewing angle. It has been identified that this television is in a position to offer a viewing angle of up to 60 degrees without creating a negative impact on the color quality. As a result, this television would become a perfect fit to the wider lounges. In addition, this television has been provided with enhanced LCD tech. Therefore, you will be able to find a reduced color fading in between different colors. This can deliver an accurate picture for the users along with a reduced glow.

During 2017, LG would release few affordable OLED televisions to the market as well. The LG B7 and LG C7 would be these two televisions. Even though these two televisions are marked at affordable price tags, they come with few advanced specifications, which can only be found in some of the high end TVs. These two models come along with 4K HDR display technology and are compatible with all the HDR formats. Out of the two variants, The LG B7 television would be marked at a slightly lower price when compared to the other.

2016 Lineup

It just has to be said; the most outstanding feature absolutely has to be the Ultra-slim OLED Design. The sleekness of the design is not just breathtakingly beautiful but a work of art. Can you imagine a screen as thin as 2.57mm? Having being developed up to Version 3.0 this year, the WebOS delivers superior system speed, increased content options and better mobile connectivity. 2016 seems to be the year of High Dynamic Range (HDR) and LG has not been left out of the party. As a matter of fact, it has been at the vanguard of the adoption of this technology and from all indications, will continue in this position for a long time.

LG SJ8500 is an excellent TV with a decent picture quality as well as better and clear viewing angles. It decently gets bright with the help of HDR and can also display wide color gamut without gradations. Its motion blur and input lag are both known to be low, making it one of best choices for all gamers.

We’ve reviewed 55 inch LG SJ8500 TV (SJ8500 presented in 2 different screen sizes). LG 55SJ8500 design is a bit similar to the UH8500, which was launched in 2016. It has also the same type of arc stand that really looks great with amazing sleek borders. It is also quite thin especially when you view it on the side, so it will definitely stand out when it is placed inside your room. There are also some practical limitations on this type of television because of the difficulty that you’re going to experience when you place this television on your walls. Its cable managements are also known to be sub-par.

Its borders are really good and thin and it is about two thirds of the UH8500 thickness. Despite its thin appearance, this television has average thickness. It is also sturdy and appealing enough to add value to the room where you are going to place this television. If you also want to get the best from LG 55SJ8500, then you should rush in the market and purchase this television today.

You will enjoy the above-mentioned features and benefits, allowing you to have the most amazing experience with the LG 55SJ8500.

Remember the child nursery rhyme of The Three Little Pigs, each pig determining what type home would be impervious to that big bad wolf? Deciding which of the three UH7700 TV models to buy that howl to specific need for solid, quality viewing won’t be as obvious, as was the obvious solid brick home. All three UH7700 TVs have same quality technology, with only screen sizes different. Let’s start with the basic foundation: Screen resolution! UH7700 TVs have the latest 4K technology! Next, contrast ratio, UH7700s work well in rooms with average lighting! If you like sports action and fast action gaming you’ll love the UH7700 240 Hz motion processing of images and low input lag! You’ll love the 3 USB and 3 HDMI ports, Channel Plus technology and Web OS 3.O, and the Smart(est) TV navigation! All the best technology, with prices that won’t knock down your house budget.

OMG! That’s the first thing any would say in reviewing the LG C6 series models of cinematic home theater viewing screens of 55 and 65 inches. That’s “Oh-My-God” (for those not versed in the acronym OMG) “The OMG is all about latest OLED TV (organic light emitting diodes) OLED color technology is the ultimate in high end TV viewing and the 55-inch screen size in LG C6 is not all that more costly than other high end TV brands, the 65-inch is pricey. Aside from price, let’s look at some specific pluses to the LG C6 series TVs. Perfect contrast ratio between the darkest to the lightest images, color is ‘as perfect’ as you would get going to the local theater thanks to the HDR OLED color and Dolby Vision technology, which is what Hollywood filmmakers use in creating the movie content. Smooth image transmission of frames per second make gaming, movies, and sport watching a pleasure. This is Smart TV at its best with a wide range of apps on the easy to navigate menu bar and ability to download other apps from LG store. Web 3.0 is the browsing platform. Viewing at angle is possible without color distortion.

PERFECT 10s in what matters most in TV viewing: contrast ratio of the dark to lighter images, strong ‘black’ tone, and local dimming of brighter areas on screen. With the LG B6 series, the models come in either of the standard cinema style screens of 55 and 65 inch. The sound quality is above average at low or mid volume frequency range. Higher volume brings distorted harmonic balance, but overall good quality of sound volume. Smart TV features of this LG B6 series supports a wide number of apps including the favorites of Amazon Video and Netflix and interfaces well for internet browsing with Web 3.O. Streaming content galore! This series model comes with four HDMI and three USB ports, though the location on back of set makes accessing difficult when wall mounted. The metallic stand, while a small footprint, is stable on tabletop. When displaying static images there will appear a ‘ghosted grey image’ for a bit after original image is gone. This, as well as an average lag time of images, makes it average quality for video gaming. For the quality of the picture, screen size, good sound, and Wi-Fi capability – LG B6 is good value for price.

The LG UH6550 Series offers great, 4K LED televisions of different sizes capable of offering plenty of highly-rated smart features and HDR quality while still being an affordable model. Video game-playing and watching sports on this device is ideal considering the great motion quality and motion blur. The general appearance of the UH6550 is simplistic, clean, and modern. Even though this is a flat screen TV, watching from an angle doesn’t deteriorate the image quality or cause colors to change. While this model only offers a regular remote without voice features, the UH6550 still has plenty of other smart features to offer from streaming to Internet browsing with many applications and games to offer for users. Even though the UH6550 doesn’t provide everything modern, smart televisions have to offer, for the cost of this model, you still get everything you could want plus more. While the LG UH6550 doesn’t provide over-the-top picture quality and sound, TV watching is still favorable, and the price is more than fair.
