How good are lg tv: LG UK6570 Review (70UK6570, 75UK6570, 86UK6570)

The best LG OLED and LCD TVs


TV manufacturers inspire loyalty with their performance that keeps customers coming back, and if you’re a customer who’s found LG TVs to be reliable over the years, then this list will set you on the path of finding your next LG TV.

Our team has used each TV extensively, running tests over several days to gauge their performance, as well as testing out their respective feature sets and how easy they are to live with from their smart features, to picture performance, sound and how easy they are to set-up and use.

We have a variety of TVs included here which include small sets to bigger screens, some of which support 8K resolution. We regularly review LG TVs each and are always updating our findings to ensure you have the best information at hand to make a purchase.

If you haven’t found a TV on this that matches what you’re looking for, be sure to come back as we’ll be updating the page throughout the year with our recommendations of the best LG TVs.

If an LG TV doesn’t tickle your fancy, then be sure to check our lists of the best Samsung TVs, or the best Panasonic TVs, and of course, our selection of the best TVs.

How we test

Learn more about how we test televisions

Every TV we review is put through the same set of tests to gauge its picture performance, usability, and smart features.

Tests are carried out over several days and are done by eye but supported with technical measurements. Testing by eye involves an expert watching a wide range of material to understand and determine a TV’s performance in fields such as brightness, contrast, motion processing, colour handling and screen uniformity.

We’ll consider the design of the TV in terms of build quality, study the spec sheets and see if the TV’s connections are up to spec, as well as playing video and audio content to ensure that the set handles playback as it claims. We also take note whether a product’s compatible formats and features are in line with industry trends or not to gauge whether it’s relevant for you.

Comparison to other related and similarly priced products is also important, to see if it’s missing any vital features and whether it impresses as a whole. After all this, we’ll come to a judgement on how the TV performs as a whole.

Best 4K LG TV

Trusted Score


  • Excellent HDR performance
  • Improved motion skills
  • Accommodating gaming features
  • Slim design
  • Wide selection of streaming apps


  • Higher starting price than G1
  • Average audio
  • Stand is optional extra

The G2 OLED has the same Gallery design as its G1 predecessor, with its rear panel designed to be uniformly flat for wall-mounting. What’s new are the changes made to the OLED EX panel and OLED Evo software that allow it to reach a brighter performance with HDR content.

We measured the HDR performance on a 10% window to be just over 1000 nits, which at the time put OLED65G2 as the brightest LG OLED that we’ve tested, though the new G3 model can hit around 1400 nits with its MLA panel technology.

But it’s not all about brightness for picture quality. Detail levels match the OLED65C2, boasting a sharp image at its 65-inch screen size and a colourful performance with both SDR and HDR content. It’s a TV you’ll want to watch lots of Dolby Vision content on, as films such as The Batman look fantastic on this TV with rich and deep blacks and highlights that add both intensity and depth to the image.

LG’s motion processing has improved across LG’s 2022 TV line-up, much smooth and less distracting than previous years with a performance that’s encroaching on the likes of Sony and Panasonic. When it comes to picture quality, this is among the best you can get from LG’s 4K OLEDs.

For gaming HDMI 2.1 is supported across all HDMI inputs, with ALLM, VRR and 4K/120Hz available, while cloud gaming options have been boosted with additions such as Nvidia GeForce NOW and Utomik. We measured input lag to be 12.9ms, exactly the same result we got from the C2 model and with HDMI VRR you can experience lag at even lower levels.

Where the G2 OLED is weakest with its audio delivery. It sounds restrained in its Dolby Atmos mode, and we found it sounded better with non-Dolby Atmos soundtracks which benefitted from more detail and dynamism. As such, a soundbar purchase is recommended, especially if you’re looking to use this LG OLED within a home cinema setup as it cannot passthrough DTS soundtracks. Prices have come down with the G2 available for less than £2000 at a number of stores.

Best value LG TV

Trusted Score


  • Great 4K HDR performance
  • Improved design
  • Comprehensive gaming features
  • Better motion skills


  • More expensive than C1 initially was
  • So-so Atmos sound

The OLED65C2 improves on the C1 in practically every way. It takes advantage of LG’s OLED Evo panel technology taken from the 2021 G1 series to offer an improved HDR performance.

We found it enhanced the overall picture quality experience with more brightness that brought the best of the TV’s picture when combined with OLED’s inky blacks and the C2 processor’s vibrant colour performance. Like the G1, similar extensive gaming performance made its way over with VRR and ALLM support for a smoother, more responsive experience. Alongside the powers of HDMI 2.1 and 4K at 120Hz, this TV makes gaming an absolute doozy.

The C2 also features Dolby Vision IQ with its Precision Detail feature that increases the detail level and sharpness in an image, arguably making it a better performer with HDR content than Sony’s A80J. Its certainly the best picture quality we’ve seen from a C-series OLED.

The design has changed with a smaller plinth increasing the options of where you can place it. In addition it also weighs less, and cables can now be trailed behind the screen in a more direct fashion, which will be helpful if you’re adding any accessories to enhance your setup such as a soundbar.

When it comes to speakers, the OLED65C2 features some crisp and clear audio, complete with spacious Dolby Atmos for extra immersion. Despite this, we found the audio lacked a bit of heft and power, so like most TVs we’d suggest you consider a separate dedicated audio unit.

The OLED65C3 is now available and while it boasts a few upgrades, the performance isn’t a big leap over the C2. In that context, we’d recommend the OLED65C2 as the better purchase, especially as it’s much more affordable than it was at launch.

Best LG Gaming TV

Trusted Score


  • Natural-looking SDR and HDR images
  • Excellent for gaming
  • Small size
  • Wide selection of apps
  • Currently cheaper than other 42-inch OLEDs


  • Rivals arguably offer upgraded picture quality
  • Doesn’t comfortably accommodate a soundbar

The OLED42C2 is a pint-sized OLED screen from LG available for less than £1,000. If you don’t have space for a big OLED screen then the 42C2 model is the TV you ought to consider.

It’s also worth considering in a gaming sense too, as its size makes it a good option for bedroom gaming settings. It supports ALLM, VRR and 4K/120Hz across all the HDMI inputs, which makes it an easier choice as to which HDMI port to plug your console in if you have multiple consoles.

We also measured latency at 12.9ms, which is suitably fast enough to offer a slick performance and with HDMI VRR, Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro supported, lag can be brought down to even lower levels for seamless gaming response.

The OLED42C2 also bears support for Dolby Vision Gaming, which is currently more of use to Xbox Series gamers, as it helps to improve the HDR performance of compatible games, as well as offering a high performance with 4K/120Hz frame rates (where supported) and improved sense of contrast.

We rate this TV very highly as a gaming monitor but it also has a broad range of features for the avid TV and film fan. WebOS supports all the major video streaming apps, while Freeview Play adds the the UK catch-up and on-demand apps to fill out the selection.

The 4K picture is impressively naturalistic, whether we were watching films or playing games, showcasing a good range of colours, as well as excellent levels of sharpness and detail. We measured brightness at around the 750 nit mark, high enough to give a good representation of HDR content and when it comes to upscaling lower quality content the OLED42C2 its pixel density helps smooth over jagged edges and blurriness with 480p content.

When it comes to its audio performance the 42C2 is decent effort but we’d recommend adding a small soundbar to help give it a lift. Bass is punchily described and there’s good levels of detail and sharpness, though with non-Dolby Atmos content we’d opt for the Standard or Cinema modes as the TV can sound sibilant in its AI Sound Pro mode.

Best LG 8K TV

Trusted Score


  • Looks great with Dolby Vision content
  • Minimalist design
  • Well-suited for gaming
  • Big-screen viewing


  • Seriously expensive
  • Not as bright or as sharp an image as you might expect
  • Upscaling could be better
  • Some apps hidden behind LG account sign-up

8K OLEDs are as rare as a hen’s tooth, with LG the only TV brand that currently makes screens at that resolution. If you are onboard the 8K train, have deep enough pockets and love the design of LG’s Signature range of products, then the OLED77Z2 is here to fulfil your wishes.

As we hinted at it’s not cheap with an asking price at $9999 / £11,999. At this 77-inch size, watching films and TV is an epic viewing experience. The screen size is, in our opinion, the only way the Z2 is better than OLED65G2 or OLED65C2 we’ve tested as picture quality doesn’t feel a big step from those 4K OLEDs.

Peak brightness is around the same as the LG C2 OLED while sharpness and detail levels are better conveyed on the smaller 65-inch G2 model. Upscaling of lower quality sources doesn’t look like it’s been boosted to 8K as a result, but given the sparsity of genuine 8K content then it’s best to settle for good quality 4K content.

In terms of smarts you’ll find much the same level of features as on the other LG TVs featured on this page, with a wide range of apps to enjoy, plenty of connectivity options and a Gaming Shelf that promotes cloud gaming apps such as Nvidia GeForce NOW.

Speaking of gaming, the OLED77Z2 is well covered with the aforementioned cloud gaming apps, support for Dolby Vision gaming (with Xbox Series consoles) as well as 4K/120Hz, 8K/60Hz, VRR and ALLM supported across all HDMI inputs. We measured input lag at 13.5ms, which is not as fast as the 4K OLEDs but if you’re gaming with a console that supports HDMI VRR, you can expect the levels of latency to drop to very low levels.

The one are we’ve felt disappointed by LG’s OLED has been in the sound department but the Z2 is one of the best we’ve heard from a recent LG TV. It’s sound system is clearer, sharper and produces a solid stereo image that’s especially noticeable when we were playing games such as Gran Turismo 7 on the PS5. Bass is punchy rather than weighty but for a flatscreen TV this is a decent effort, though again you should lay aside some cash to partner the TV with an external sound system.



Trusted Score


  • Often stellar picture quality
  • Groundbreaking black levels for IPS
  • Good sound quality


  • Some backlight issues with the darkest scenes
  • No VRR support
  • Expensive versus 4K TVs

If 4K simply isn’t enough and you’re after the best picture quality available, the LG 75QNED99 is a stellar choice.

It has an 8K resolution, which is 4x the pixel count of a 4K panel, and whilst there isn’t much in the way of native 8K content at the moment, the motivation for purchasing an 8K TV is down to its powerful upscaling of existing content. We found it worked a treat with the 75QNED99 offering some excellent clarity.

Alongside 8K comes the power of Mini LED backlight technology. This provides more dimming zones for unparalleled contrast from an LCD screen and more precise brightness. It’s not be on par with an OLED screen, but the QNED’s Mini LED screen provides vibrant and rich colours thanks to LG’s NanoCell technology.

There are some handy quality of life features too with regards to the Magic remote which has undergone a redesign. WebOS provides a comprehensive experience for finding content and is useful when searching for a wide variety of media. In addition voice control is effective and LG’s interface recommends content based on your viewing habits which is particularly handy.

Even with HDMI 2.1 support the 75QNED99 isn’t as suited for gamers with no form of variable refresh rate support in sight. There’s no denying this is an expensive display, so it’s only suited for those with money to spare. Nevertheless, LG’s first 8K QNED TV puts the brand’s LCD TVs on the map like never before.

The return of LG’s mid-range and popular C-series OLED


What is an OLED TV?

OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode. Each pixel is self-emissive, which means it can produce its own light. This produces high levels of contrast as a pixel that’s ‘on’ can sit next to a pixel that’s ‘off’. This also helps to deliver the deepest black levels in the TV world, wide viewing angles and excellent, vivid contrast levels.

Are OLED TVs good for gaming?

OLEDs are one of the best displays for gaming with LG’s OLEDs supporting every form of Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) for smoother gameplay and faster response times, High Frame Rate (4K/120Hz) and low latency gaming, with input times less than 10ms. Panasonic will be jumping into the gaming fray with their 2021 OLED TV range, too.

The best LG TVs of 2023: The top 3

Why you can trust T3
Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

Overall, the best LG TV overall is the LG G3, which features a simply stunning OLED display. It’s one of the best TVs on the market at the moment, from any manufacturer, and you’ll find it at the top of many people’s best TV lists.

The G3 is pretty pricey, though, so our best LG TV for most people is the LG C2, which delivers an unbeatable combination of features, performance and price – especially if you can find a good deal for it online.

Our pick for the best budget LG TV is the LG UP7700, a 4K TV that represents remarkable value within the company’s non-OLED lineup. The competitive pricing is combined with an impressively good picture and HDR performance.

1. LG G3

The best LG TV you can buy right now


Sizes: 55, 65, 77, 83 inches

Resolution: 4K

Screen type: OLED

HDR support: Dolby Vision

Today’s best LG G3 prices at all sizes

Reasons to buy


The brightest pure OLED TV around


Sublime 4K HDR picture


Plenty of features to appeal to gamers

Reasons to avoid

No stand-mount included

Sound is a little weedy

We were quite blown away when we reviewed the LG G3 – we wrote that “TV doesn’t get better than this”, which shows what high regard we hold this particular television set in. You get a simply stunning picture, with 4K resolution and HDR support, and it shows off just how fantastic OLED technology can be.

This comes at a price of course, and if you’re on a budget then some of the other OLED LG TVs that we’ve listed below might suit you better. However, if money is no object and you want the best that there is at the moment, it’s hard to look past the LG G3. We can’t imagine that anyone is going to be disappointed with this set.

There’s a lot here to interest gamers as well, with the four HDMI 2.1 ports offering 4K 120Hz, VRR, and ALLM technologies. For all the information you need on this set, including how the Micro Lens Array technology achieves such high levels of brightness for an OLED, consult our full LG G3 review.

2. LG C2

A best LG TV at 42 inches – and it’s fantastic at larger sizes


Sizes: 42, 48, 55, 65, 77, 83 inches

Resolution: 4K

Screen type: OLED Evo with Brightness Booster (excluding 42- & 48-inch)

HDR support: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG

Today’s best LG G2 prices at all sizes

Reasons to buy


Supreme image processing skills


Excellent features and connectivity


Brighter OLED Evo screen in most models

Reasons to avoid

42- and 48-inch don’t have brighter screen

Higher launch price than LG C1

The LG C2 is the upgraded 2022 version of the LG C1 we mentioned further above, and at sizes 55 inches and up, it features a brighter screen than the LG C1, meaning even more impressive HDR performance. It also introduces the first 42-inch OLED 4K TV to LG’s line-up, making premium image quality even more accessible.

So why isn’t it further up this list? There’s a huge gulf in price between the brand-new LG C2 and the now-heavily-discounted LG C1, and for a lot of people, the C1 will be the smarter buy right now. It’s also worth noting that the 42-inch and 48-inch models don’t include the brighter screen, and have the same brightness levels as the C1.

However, this is still a five-star TV – and we gave it that score in our full LG C2 review. Testing the 65-inch version with the brighter screen, we said “Thanks to its brighter panel and all-new Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor, LG has managed to deliver a new level of picture performance from the C2 OLED… at sizes of 55 inches and up. 4K images are refined and smooth, with pronounced dynamic range, and upscaling has never looked better. Simply put, this is a gorgeous TV to watch.”

And with a great smart TV platform and HDMI 2. 1 support on all four ports, it’s totally future-proofed for next-gen connectivity, and is ideal for gamers.

3. LG UQ80

The best budget LG TV right now


Sizes: 43, 50, 55, 65, 75, 86 inches

Resolution: 4K

Screen type: LED

HDR support: HDR10, HLG

Reasons to buy


Great smart TV software


Low input lag for gaming


Good HDR performance

Reasons to avoid

Not the deepest blacks

Sound could be better

So much emphasis gets put on LG’s OLED TVs, it’s easy to forget they make some excellent LED models as well: the UQ80 is undoubtedly one of the best LG TVs for those on a limited budget, delivering big and bright 4K pictures without breaking the bank. There’s effective upscaling and image accuracy, and vibrant HDR performance as well.

The competitive pricing does require a degree of compromise of course, and you’re not going to get the deepest of deep blacks that OLED can offer. The sound could be better too, but you can’t expect best-in-class at this price. You do get HDMI 2.1 functionality, but only on the most expensive 86-inch model.

A key area where the TV doesn’t compromise is its smart platform. It sports the full webOS system, with a complete set of features, comprehensive selection of streaming apps, and the superb Magic Remote to make navigation intuitive and responsive. This excellent LG TV proves that just because you have a limited budget you don’t have to settle for a substandard TV.

4. LG A1

The best cheap OLED LG TV


Sizes: 48, 55, 65, 77 inches

Resolution: 4K

Screen type: OLED

HDR support: HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG

Today’s best LG A1 prices

Reasons to buy


Impressive OLED SDR & HDR  images


Dolby Vision & Atmos support


Very competitive price

Reasons to avoid

No HDMI 2. 1

Average audio quality

LG doesn’t just produce some of the most advanced OLED TVs, it also offers some of the cheapest. The LG A1 is the best LG TV to buy for anyone who wants to enjoy the cinematic benefits of OLED without having to bust their budget. In fact the A1 is so competitively priced that it even beats less credible brands in terms of value-for-money.

Not only does the LG A1 offer a wide choice of screen sizes, but also the inherent strengths of OLED with its incredibly deep blacks and pixel-precise highlights. This model might not be as bright as the LG G1, but it still retains the accurate colours and controlled contrast of LG’s OLED TVs – resulting in an incredibly rich HDR performance.

You also get LG’s superb smart TV platform, which is not only easy to use, quick to navigate, and highly response, but also boasts every streaming app imaginable. Of course something has to give at this price, so the image processing is less advanced, there’s no future-proof HDMI 2. 1, and the sound quality could be better, but otherwise the LG A1 is hard to beat for bang-for-buck with today’s technology. Here’s our LG A1 vs LG B1 guide, if you want to see how it compares directly to the other budget OLED model (which is also in this list).

5. LG C1

The best LG TV for a lot of people


Sizes: 48, 55, 65, 77, 83 inches

Resolution: 4K

Screen type: OLED

HDR support: HDR: HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG

Today’s best LG C1 prices at all sizes

Reasons to buy


Excellent SDR & HDR pictures


OLED’s biggest range of screen sizes


Extensive connectivity

Reasons to avoid

Middling sound quality

Not as bright as QNED

When it comes to TVs, size does matter, and while not everyone can squeeze a 77-inch OLED into their lounge, the reality is that many struggle to accommodate even a 55-inch model. Thankfully LG offers 48-inch versions of the C1 (as well as the A1), and if you want maximum performance from minimum space, then this is the best LG TV for you. Of course, it’s excellent at other sizes too.

The LG C1 is a sweet spot in the manufacturer’s OLED line-up, and while it might not have the G1’s brighter ‘evo’ panel, it has just about everything else. That means you get HDMI 2.1 with eARC, 4K 120Hz, VRR, and ALLM, plus the C1 also works with Freesync and G-Sync. So this OLED TV is ideal for anyone who wants a screen for gaming… but it’s processing just as advanced as LG’s highest-end 4K TVs, meaning that’s wonderful with movies too.

The C1 also includes Dolby Atmos and LG’s AI Sound Pro, which means you get a virtual height challenge with immersive audio, although like most modern TVs, built-in sound isn’t its strong point. As with all of LG’s TVs there’s no HDR10+, but you get all the other HDR formats. So whatever your desired screen size, this capable LG OLED has you covered – here’s our full LG C1 review.

6. LG G2

A superb LG TV for sheer OLED picture quality


Sizes: 55, 65, 77, 83 inches

Resolution: 4K

Screen type: OLED Evo

HDR support: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG

Today’s best LG G2 prices at all sizes

Reasons to buy


Best ever OLED HDR performance


Incredibly sharp and real images


Future-proofed connectivity

Reasons to avoid

No stand in the box

Fairly expensive

The LG G2 is highest-end OLED TV from LG’s 2022 range, and it features the brightest screen in any LG OLED so far, delivering up to 950 nits of HDR brightness compared to more like 700 from the LG C1. But it still delivers the perfect black levels and per-pixel precision contrast control that OLED is famed for. And that’s not in some super-vibrant mode that nobody ever uses: that’s in Filmmaker mode, which is the most sedate and realistic option.

As a result of the panel tech and LG’s next-gen processing, image quality really is best-in-class. In our full LG G2 review, we said “Once you combine this with OLED’s pixel-precision and LG’s class-leading dynamic tone mapping, you have some of the best HDR images we’ve ever seen. The colours are also bright and vibrant, with the LG reaching 99% of the DCI-P3 colour space used for HDR… you get sharp and detailed images regardless of the original resolution of the content. The motion handling is also impressive.”

We also found its built-in speakers to be surprisingly effective for such a uniformly thin TV, and with four HDMI 2.1 ports, it’s something of a gamer’s dream too.

The downsides are that it’s designed for wall-mounting, and comes with a flush wall bracket instead of any kind of stand. You can buy feet or and ‘Gallery’ floorstand for it, but it’s an extra cost on an already pricey screen.

7. LG A2

A cheaper OLED for your best LG TV needs


Sizes: 45, 55, 65 inches

Today’s best LG A2 prices

Reasons to buy


Pictures are superb


Relatively low input lag


Great smart TV platform

Reasons to avoid

Doesn’t reach the top OLED level

Not the best audio performance

Perhaps you don’t necessarily want to pay the very top prices for an LG OLED TV, to which we’d say fair enough. The LG A2 offers some of the best features – and best pictures – you can get from a television, while making some trade-offs that ensure the set is a bit more on the affordable size.

Those trade-offs come in terms of brightness and refresh rate for example. It’s also worth noting, especially if you’re a gamer, that there are no HDMI 2.1 ports, so you don’t get the full 4K 120Hz experience with extras such as VRR. Of course you can game on this set, but not to the level that enthusiasts might want.

You still get a fantastic-looking OLED picture that processes all kinds of video inputs well, decent sound performance, and LG’s usual webOS software (which is one of the best around). It’s a superb value-for-money option and definitely deserves a place on your shortlist.

8. LG Nano76

The best LG LED TV for mid-range quality


Sizes: 43, 50, 55, 65, 70, 75, 86 inches

Resolution: 4K

Screen type: NanoCell LED

HDR support: HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG

Today’s best LG NANO76 prices

Reasons to buy


Good for sports and streaming


Excellent on-board software


Upscales lower-res content very well

Reasons to avoid

Black levels could be deeper

Not the brightest screen

LG’s TV range might be dominated by OLED TVs, but not everyone will be enticed by the format’s charms (or indeed price). For some, the best LG TV for you might be the Nano76, with its NanoCell technology – designed specifically to improve the colour performance of the set and create punchy HDR performance.

It certainly scores highly in those departments, and while you don’t get the very deepest blacks like you do with OLED, you won’t be disappointed with the picture here. The television is particularly good at upscaling content that’s less than 4K in resolution, and displaying sports and TV shows.

On the gaming side, the low input lag is sure to appeal, but you only get HDMI 2.1 ports – complete with the 120Hz refresh rate for 4K pictures – if you go for the high-end 86-inch model. It’s decent enough for connecting up a console or gaming PC, but serious gamers will perhaps want to look elsewhere.

Not the brightest set

Design is a bit plain

If anyone ever tells you that you have to pay top dollar to get the best LG OLED TVs, don’t believe them: the LG B2 is evidence that there are very capable models at lower price points. You get a superb picture and excellent performance, although there are some areas (like brightness and sound) that aren’t at the highest level.

When it comes to gaming, the HDMI 2.1 ports enable a 120Hz refresh rate at a 4K resolution, plus extras such as variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM). if you have one of the newest games consoles to put under your television set, then you’ll know just how important those specs are.

HDR performance is impressive, and the TV works well as a PC monitor as well as a television set, if you need it to. In fact, the LG B2 has so much going for it that you may well wonder why you would spend more – it’s available for some very appealing prices if you have a shop around online.

Not much 8K content around

It’s going to cost you an awful lot

The awe-inspiring LG Z2 really has to be seen to be believed – this gigantic 77-inch OLED TV offers a resolution of 8K, so naturally it doesn’t come cheap. However, if you can sort out the logistics and the finances to get hold of this particular television, then we’d say you’re in for a treat.

It’s fair to say that there’s not a huge amount of 8K content around at the moment, but if you can find it (on YouTube for example), then it looks stunning. Thankfully, the TV does a very good job of upscaling videos at a mere 4K (or even lower) resolution, so you can enjoy everything that you currently watch.

It’s got the excellent on-board webOS software and integrated, intelligent image processing that the best LG TVs are known for, and the sound is pretty ear-catching too. There’s full HDMI 2.1 support with all the extras for gamers, though you’re unlikely to have a PC rig capable of outputting 8K resolutions.

Buying an LG TV, you can be left without a TV and without money (for a while) .


Choosing a TV in our time, unfortunately, has become a fairly non-trivial task. If earlier the plus or minus choice was reduced to the choice of the diagonal and the available budget, now to select a high-quality copy you need to know the backlight technology, the type of screen matrix, the refresh rate and other technical terms. At least if you want the purchased TV to please you with image quality and reliability.

There are several leaders in the TV market, including Samsung and LG. They are also leaders in the manufacture of matrices (displays) for other manufacturers. For example, this iPhone 11 Pro of yours uses a display made by Samsung. And Sony TVs also use a matrix manufactured by Samsung, and Sony OLED TVs use a matrix manufactured by LG. As the saying goes, live and learn.

But as it happens in other technological areas, our Chinese friends have long had their eyes on the TV market, creating great competition for the Korean giants.

On the one hand, you can buy a huge 4K TV from Xiaomi for literally $400-500 (let it be of mediocre quality, forgive me fans of this brand), but the Korean brands mentioned above are forced to follow the path of cheaper production, which inevitably leads to a deterioration in the quality of manufactured products. And apparently, I became one of the “victims” of these technological wars.

Last fall, after finishing the renovation in the bedroom, I decided to buy a new, beautiful, modern TV to solemnly hang it on the wall and enjoy 4K content before going to bed.

Since Samsung was the main supplier of TVs for our family before, in principle, the choice of manufacturer was not particularly important. Based on the required characteristics, a certain TV model of this manufacturer was chosen, but after some time the “wow effect” from viewing 4K content passed, and the image quality somehow did not please the eye.

After digging in detail about this TV, I understood why it happened, so it was decided to merge this TV through Avito and more carefully approach the choice of another model.

To be honest, just a couple of years ago I would not have looked at LG products, as my experience and the experience of my friends was quite negative from using LG equipment.

But, apparently, someone in the leadership of LG realized that “it’s impossible to live on like this” and it seems that LG began to produce good products. In general, it has become almost impossible to ignore LG products, especially when it comes to choosing a TV.

Last year, a good budget LG TV was bought for the dacha, a washing machine a few months ago, and at the end of December, after a long torment of choice, a rather expensive TV from LG was purchased. But by the looks of it, I relaxed early and LG hit back.

After a week of tormenting the setup of a freshly purchased TV, it became clear that something was wrong with the TV. This something was wrong in the fact that quite strong light of the matrix was found on the entire screen of the TV.

For the uninitiated in the secrets of manufacturing modern TVs, I explain. A modern TV is a kind of sandwich that includes LED backlighting, a matrix consisting of hundreds of small LEDs and some kind of super nano coating on the screen (in the case of the TV I chose). All this should lead to a clean and bright picture. But if the TV is assembled crookedly, then the LED-backlight starts to light up the image on the screen, which leads to poor-quality display of the picture on the TV.

Since this situation is definitely a manufacturing defect of the TV, it was decided to contact the LG hotline. Based on the results of communication with the hotline, an application was made for the visit of an ASC engineer to diagnose a TV at home.

I won’t talk about the fact that the engineer was able to come only the third time, because the first engineer had a concussion, and the second just seemed to be ill. So, miraculously, the surviving third engineer still reached me, saw my wonderful TV and joyfully reported that he had not seen such lights for a long time.

Here I was delighted, because the burden of proving the presence of a defect in modern goods is still a quest, but judging by the fact that the engineer was immediately ready to issue a technical condition certificate confirming the declared defect, I became confident that this TV could be returned, More specifically, the place of purchase.

The ASC engineer proposed two options for resolving the issue:

  1. Issuance of an act of the technical condition of the goods, which will confirm the presence of the declared defect on the TV. And on the basis of this act, if the TV was bought in a decent store, you can try to return or exchange my copy.
  2. The second option assumed a rather long quest, which consisted in the fact that a new matrix would be ordered, then it would be replaced. But since, according to the ASC engineer and based on similar cases, we are talking about a factory defect in the manufacture of the TV, replacing the matrix will not resolve the issue. But based on the service policy of LG, the certificate of non-repairability (hereinafter referred to as the NRP certificate) is issued only if the claimed defect is confirmed at least three times during the warranty period.

Statement of technical condition issued by the engineer of ASC LG

Here it is necessary to make a small note that, according to the RFPO, if we are talking about a technically complex product, then indeed, for the consumer to have the right to return the product, the claimed defect must be either unrepairable, including the impossibility of repairing the product within 45 days, or the claimed malfunction has repetitive character. I may be wrong about the accuracy of the wording, but the general meaning, I think, is clear.

Since I didn’t want to waste time and the TV set was purchased in a store with which I have been cooperating for quite a long time and I buy almost all the equipment from them, it was decided to go the number one path.

Some time ago I took the TV to the place of purchase along with the act and handed it over to the warranty department. Since it was a weekend, the specialist of this department asked me to wait until a weekday so that the management would consider this issue and decide on the return of the TV. But a few days later I was disappointed, because the store refused to take the TV back.

According to a store representative, LG is quite strict about returning their products, so a return can only be approved if the LG CAS issues an RRP to the customer. Which, as we remember, only happens if the claimed defect is confirmed after three repair attempts.

And this is where the most interesting thing happens. It turns out that, based on the accepted service policy of LG in Russia, in order to obtain an NRP act, you need to call a representative of the ASC three times to diagnose the TV, try to fix the TV twice, and only after that you can get the desired act. Even if the TV has a factory defect and replacing components multiple times will not solve the problem.

I can assume that LG is “more profitable” to spend a lot of money trying to repair a defective copy than to increase the marriage statistics, because if there was no sex in the Soviet Union, then the marriage rate of a modern technological giant should tend to zero.

And if the Korean authorities are unlikely to give money to local managers for the money drained for warranty repair of defective TVs, then for each confirmed defective TV, both the Kaluga plant and local management notably grabs from the corporation’s management.

As a person who has worked for several years in another excellent Korean corporation, I can assume that this may well be in the style of such a company.

But there is certainly a disclaimer here that the above is a purely personal value judgment, but I can’t think of any other explanations for this situation and LG’s great unwillingness to recognize the factory manufacturing defect of the TV, even if this information is broadcast through the LG ASC and from a representative a store that sells tens of thousands of LG TVs a year and, accordingly, is one of the largest sellers of this brand of TVs in Russia.

Since I used to work in the consumer business, including in the direction of TVs, I talked with friends who are still working in this direction and they all confirmed that there were such problems with returning LG TVs back to the manufacturer and a rather tough attitude LG to its suppliers, which leads to conflict situations between these suppliers (stores) and their customers.

I agree that the situation described above could have happened due to an unfortunate combination of various circumstances for me. Perhaps this was all invented by the LG ASC and the store in order to “merge” me with the return of the TV, but the information about the LG service policy is confirmed by several sources and is similar to the situation that I got into when I purchased the LG TV.

I am quite scrupulous in my choice of equipment, but from time to time I still encounter defective goods one way or another. And never before has the return of such equipment been associated with such complex procedures.

For example, Logitech has a very simple technology exchange process. It is enough to completely disable a defective mouse or keyboard (in agreement with Logitech), send a photo with confirmation, and Logitech will promptly send a new copy.

Harman Kardon speakers whistled – took it to the ASC, waited 20 days for pro forma, because this manufacturer does not supply spare parts to Russia, respectively, the main thing is that the ASC recognizes the presence of a marriage and after a while you receive an act of NRP and return the goods to the store. Well, and so on.

Why LG has such an attitude towards customers from the point of view of the buyer is not clear to me, since it is obvious that a customer who finds himself in such a situation is unlikely to ever look at LG equipment again. Therefore, ladies and gentlemen, as they say, learns better from the mistakes of others, so choose your technique wisely so as not to get into the same wonderful situation as me.

Well, what will happen to my TV next, we will find out in the next 45 days.

Upd. 02/12/2020

A few minutes ago, I was contacted by a representative of LG and said that I was approved to return the TV and compensate for its cost. I don’t know if this happened thanks to this article, which was read by 20 thousand people in less than a day, but justice has triumphed!

LG OLED65CX6LA OLED TV Review In past years, we were able to get acquainted with both the flagship LG OLED TV W8 (Wallpaper TV) and the most affordable model at that time B9. This time we got a review of a model that can be positioned as a mid-budget (by OLED standards, of course) – CX, or more precisely, the 65-inch LG OLED65CX6LA.

The hallmark of OLED TVs is their completely unique thickness, and this model is no exception: across the entire screen area, the body is only 4 mm thick, so in profile with some distance it seems as if you are looking at a thick sheet of paper.

The electronics box adds an extra 4 cm to the bottom, and it also houses a VESA compatible mount (200×300) for mounting the TV on the wall.

Around the protective glass that covers the screen, there is a very thin, only a couple of millimeters thick, metal frame. After switching on, a slight indentation around the screen becomes noticeable, so that as a result the image ends up in a very modest frame about 1 cm wide. A wide decorative plate is attached to it in front, which visually increases its size plus increases stability. For accurate cable routing, you can use a special recess on the back side in the center of the case, which is covered with a decorative cover.

All connectors are concentrated in two blocks, one oriented to the side, the other to the back. To connect external sources, there are 4 HDMI 2.1 inputs (supporting [email protected] Hz signal in HDR and with 4:4:4 color subsampling). One of the HDMI ports supports ARC / eARC, which allows you to output multi-channel audio from streaming services to external speakers.

You can connect your TV to your home network either via cable (Ethernet connector) or via Wi-Fi ( is supported). 3 USB ports are designed to connect external drives and other peripherals. There is also a slot for a conditional access module that decodes paid channels, and two audio outputs.

Remote control

The TV comes with the traditional LG Magic Remote, which we saw in previous models. It is relatively small, ergonomically shaped and fits well in the hand. In the center of the four-way joystick is not a button, but a scroll wheel (which also works by pressing) – with its help it is convenient to work with the proprietary webOS operating system.

The remote control is gyroscopic, so you can navigate through the menu either using the arrows around the wheel, or simply pointing the remote control at the desired item, thus controlling the “mouse” cursor. In addition, LG Magic Remote supports voice input.

The LG OLED TV CX model is available in Ukraine in several diagonals – 55, 65 and 77 inches, the second option came to our review (also this year, for the first time in this line, the smallest diagonal is presented – 48″, its appearance in Ukraine is possible in the near future). The CX can be described as a mid-budget model that sits between the flagship WX and the budget BX, and offers a reasonable balance of price and features.

Powered by the 3rd generation α9 processor, this TV features 30% faster performance than last year’s α9 4K gen 2 processor, improved AI features, improved noise reduction, face detection, and text processing, as well as the ability to adjust picture and sound for the room where the TV is located.

Also for the CX model, support for the AMD FreeSync adaptive frequency mode and compatibility with the similar format from NVIDIA – G-Sync is announced, which will be appreciated by users who need a TV, including for games. Here we note that in game mode, it boasts a very low input lag – about 13 ms. All this, together with the improved implementation of the HDR mode in games, makes the LG OLED TV CX not only the basis for a spectacular home theater, but also an excellent gaming display, including for next-generation consoles.

Traditionally for LG TVs, a proprietary webOS shell is used as Smart TV. It has a very simple and user-friendly interface with quick access to everything you need. The main screen is called by the Home button on the remote control, after which the main menu is displayed over the current image with a ribbon of the most popular functions (calling TV channels, installed applications, switching to the last video source, etc.).

WebOS is a multitasking OS, so running applications continue to idle when switching to another task. Like last year’s lineup, the new TVs use ThinQ’s proprietary artificial intelligence system with support for Google Assistant and Alexa, which is used to better recognize voice commands (launching applications, switching between channels, changing the volume), as well as for search queries.

In 2020, webOS received an update to version 5.0 – visually, however, its interface practically does not differ from webOS 4.5, which we saw in last year’s line, the changes are mostly cosmetic – for example, you can now add your own items to the settings side menu, and the advertising banner in the lower left corner is disabled in the settings.

The main differences are in the content: for example, cooperation with Apple brought the Apple TV client and HomeKit and AirPlay 2 support to the new TVs as part of the smart home control platform; in addition, foreign users also get access to Disney+ (which is not officially represented in Ukraine). Also new is Sports Alert, which allows you to keep track of the activity of your favorite sports teams.

In addition to the remote control, you can also control the TV using a smartphone – by installing the LG ThinQ application on it (it can also be used to control the entire smart home) or LG TV Plus, which, among other things, can send content from a smartphone to the TV screen .

The LG OLED TV CX has a 2.2 speaker system with a total power of 40 W (20 W each for satellites and woofers) – in this regard, there are no special differences from the previous year’s model, C9. Acoustics supports Dolby Atmos virtual surround sound technology, which allows you to simulate surround sound on the built-in speakers. Thanks to this, the LG OLED65CX6LA speakers sound good, the sound is rich, with good detail and quite “bass”.

Picture quality

The LG OLED65CX6LA uses a 120Hz refresh rate 10-bit OLED panel with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels and a 65″ diagonal.

In reviews of previous models of LG OLED TVs, we have repeatedly noted how impressive deep black color is – the pixels on this panel glow by themselves, and in the absence of additional backlighting, it looks completely black even in complete darkness, without the slightest hint of a stray dark gray glow, which is observed in any, even the highest quality, LED-backlit LCD TV.

Another difference from traditional LCDs that immediately catches the eye is the maximum viewing angles. Even when viewed from the side, when the entire screen shrinks to a narrow strip, the brightness and color saturation remain almost the same as when you are right in front of the screen.

A total of nine video modes are available for SDR content. “Bright” and “Sport” give a very bright and contrasting picture, it will be appropriate in the case of sports TV shows and for content with a faded image, but for a movie show it is better to stop at one of the corresponding modes, which are also missing here. “Cinema” offers fairly typical settings for this purpose, which make the image slightly muted in brightness, warmer than the “standard” modes and with a gamma curve just below the standard value of 2.2, which gives very good detail in both the bright areas of the frame , as well as in the shadows.

There are also two “expert” modes certified by the ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) for cinephiles – for a dark room and a room with bright background lighting. They are not critically different from their own “Cinema” mode (except in the “dark” version of ISF, which is quite logical, the brightness is additionally reduced for more comfortable viewing in complete darkness), and in general, any of these three modes can be used with settings for default, without long and tedious tweaks.

New to this year’s LG OLED TV lineup is the Filmmaker Mode, which is designed to present the film as its creator intended: in this case, all post-processing algorithms are turned off and the video is shown at the original frame rate, color reproduction and in original aspect ratio. This mode was proposed by the UHD Alliance consortium and has been supported by a number of TV manufacturers, including LG. In theory, its activation is also possible in automatic mode, but for this the video must contain special metadata – which, of course, requires the support of the undertaking from content producers. In the meantime, you “have to” manage by manually activating it in the TV settings.

ISF Expert – Vivid Light offers a full color gamut that almost completely covers the DCI-P3 space; in other movie modes, coverage is limited to sRGB space, resulting in calm, natural colors. In addition, in the “ISF Expert – dark room” mode, the gamma is somewhat underestimated, this visually makes the image a little less saturated and contrast, which will be appropriate when watching a movie in complete darkness.

To simulate the HDR effect on normal SDR content, there is an HDR Effect mode – it makes the picture brighter and more saturated, while treating the image more carefully than the Vivid mode, so if we choose between these two for faded content, we would advised to use the first.

As far as true HDR goes, the LG OLED65CX6LA supports all major standards: HDR10, Dolby Vision and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG). The number of video modes in this case is slightly less: “Bright”, “Standard”, “Cinema”, “Home theater” and Filmmaker Mode.

The HDR effect is the strongest in the first two, but there it is too exaggerated. We would recommend using one of the three modes specifically designed for movie viewing: in them the picture is slightly less bright and saturated, but with more accurate color reproduction and “softer”.
