Packaging

 

For a $5000 TV, you'd expect a slick box and a securely packed TV, right? Of course. LG delivers here, but the box for the 4K curved OLED changes depending on your market. Here in Australia, we have a plain box compared to the more colorful box in other markets like the US.

The front of the box in the bottom right we can see the model number, and top right we can see that it has speakers from Hardon Kardon.

On top of the TV are some instructions on how to get it out - because it's big, you're going to want to pay close attention to this.

 

Inside, you'll find just the TV (with a connected power cable), a bunch of Styrofoam, and an accessory box. Inside of the accessory box, you'll find 3D glasses, the remote, and some auxiliary cables.

One massive omission is that LG didn't include an HDMI cable in the box. Surely for $5000, you could include a $20 cable.

 

 

Detailed Look & Setup

Here's the front of the TV, setup on my drawers in my bedroom. It's huge, and I love it. Bonus points if you can guess what that little black box in the corner is.

I have the TV setup in my bedroom for now, with this angle taken from the right. You can clearly see the curve, which is very noticeable from the side, but not so much when you're sitting in front of it.

Input wise, we have 3 x HDMI 2.0 ports (4K capable of course), 2 x USB 2.0 ports, and 1 x USB 3.0. Finally, you can see a 3.5mm auxiliary port for your headphones or speakers.

 

The stand that the TV comes with is super sturdy, where I've placed it on a desk in my office and onto the chest of drawers in my bedroom without a problem.

Here's the stand, with the four metal mounts including two screw holes each.

The metal mounts go into the back of the TV, with two screws per mount, as you can see here.

Here's what the back of your TV should look like once you've got the stand mounted correctly.

Once the TV is setup, you can begin playing around with the options.
