There is no such thing as a perfect television, and there probably won’t be one soon. LG’s flagship TV LG Electronics 65EG9600 65-inch 4K Ultra HD 3D Curved Smart OLED TV (2015 Model) is the finest quality TV available today. And it deserves the awards and accolades it has been receiving for offering the best picture quality available, despite some rumblings you might stumble on while researching the TV online.
Picture Quality: The LG EG9600 offers the best overall picture quality in a consumer television available today. The reasons are: Perfect black levels, the best off-axis viewing experience, excellent brightness, and outstanding color.
Perhaps more important is the fact that the EG9600 is one of the few UHD TVs today outfitted with a 10-bit panel, so it is able to offer finer shades of color and smoother color gradation. That gives you about 1.07 billion colors, and a much more natural-looking picture.
Viewing angle: It is another area where OLED TVs excel. Outside of standing behind the TV, it is nearly impossible to find a viewpoint that has noticeably compromised picture quality elements. Conversely, it seems the LED/LCD TVs that offer the best black levels suffer the most when it comes to viewing angle.
Ease of use: WebOS 2.0 is an even more wonderful version of the TV operating system LG launched last year. It offers more customization, faster access to commonly-used functions, and is as intuitive as it gets with its Wii-style navigation.
Along with that new OS is even more powerful processing. The TV boots up faster and apps load more quickly. And using Netflix on this TV was a consistently better experience than on some competing brands.
Connectivity: LG has dropped an HDMI input off this year’s model. The EC9300 had four HDMI inputs, the EG9600 has only three. Also, the TV’s built-in Wi-Fi adapter maxes out at 802.11n – without AC this year.
Wall mounting: This TV can also be mounted on wall. But you need to get a specific mount from LG at an extra cost.
Bottom-line: It is an acceptable fact that LG’s flagship TV LG Electronics 65EG9600 65-inch 4K Ultra HD 3D Curved Smart OLED TV (2015 Model) is the finest quality TV available today. But whether you should buy one depends entirely on your individual priorities and how much money you want (or have) to spend.
