OLED TVs are the Future: It's plain and simple: OLED is the future. The quality is incredible, the TVs are much thinner and lighter, and well - the entire experience is completely unmatched.
Unmatchable Quality: Nothing compares, period. My old 55-inch 1080p flat LCD is nothing compared to this.
True Blacks: I have to say the black levels that OLEDs make possible, is the star here. I've seen many 4K displays and TVs, but I've never laid my eyes on an OLED TV for this long before. Movies like Interstellar and Gravity, to John Wick, Man of Steel and many more - the blacks, are black. They are as close as you're going to get, with the black levels on LG's best TV to date blowing me away.
Upscaled Content Still Looks Amazing: Most people that buy a 4K TV have to worry about upscaling their 720p and 1080p content, but the LG 65-inch 4K curved OLED TV does it beautifully. I even watched Jumanji (released in 1996) through Netflix, and it looks great considering the age of the movie.
Far Better than LCD for Gaming: After a few hours of playing Battlefield 4 and NBA 2K6, I need more time for gaming on this TV - so expect a follow-up piece. But, gaming is awesome on this screen. The input lag is impressively low, so at a distance you can get into gaming on LG's 4K OLED TV.
4K Content Looks Unbelievable: This is what it was made for, and holy balls does it deliver. Native 4K content looks absolutely retina-bustingly beautiful. Every corner pops, and every line shimmers. It's completely awe-inspiring.
Not Enough 4K Content: This isn't LG's fault, but I would love to see more 4K content out there. 4K Blu-ray is right around the corner, so once that happens you can be sure we'll be revisiting our review on the LG 65-inch 4K curved OLED TV.
From start to finish, the LG 65EG9600 is an amazing piece of technology. For a shave under $5000, you're getting a huge 65-inch 4K curved OLED. It's a huge premium over the likes of Vizio, Sony, and Samsung that offer 65-inch 4K LED TVs on Amazon for less than $2000, but the premium, in my opinion, is worth it.
If you want to buy a TV that's going to last for a few years being at the top of its game, the LG 65EG9600 is what you want. If you want a TV that's going to blow you away each time you turn it on, the LG 65EG9600 is what you need. If you want to have a TV that is head and shoulders above the rest, well... the LG 65EG9600 is what you want.
I thought that the LG 65EG9600 would excel at 4K content, but even 720p and 1080p content looked great. Even the lower bit-rate content on Netflix at 720p looked better than normal, with it looking better than my 55-inch 1080p flat LED TV from Samsung.
But, this is the type of TV that cannot be fully explained through a review, or through a video. If you have a store near you that has the LG 65EG9600 on display, you simply need to see it in person. It will convince you on the spot - it's that good.
There's just so much here... the black levels, the clarity, the beautifully curved screen, OLED technology, the brightness, the insane contrast and beautiful better-than-real-life colors, super low input lag, and so much more. I don't know where I'd improve on this at all. LG has crafted the best TV I've ever seen; that's for sure.
