IFA 2009: Hands-on with LG’s 15” OLED-TV

23 Sep 2009 | Rasmus Larsen |

FlatpanelsHD is on spot on the world’s largest consumer electronics fair IFA 2009 in Berlin. Read about all the new product launches and trends from IFA 2009 on the FlatpanelsHD front page or in our IFA 2009 coverage page.

FlatpanelsHD got a closer look at the LG 15-inch OLED TV at IFA 2009 and it was a very rewarding experience. The OLED impressed us.

At IFA 2009 LG announced that their 15-inch OLED TV will be available on the market before New Year in Asia and follow later in the rest of the world. Thus, LG launches the world's second OLED-TV, with the first one being the Sony XEL-1.

FlatpanelsHD had the opportunity to look at the OLED TV and we find it at least as impressive as Sony's 11-inch XEL-1, that we reviewed on our Danish site www.flatpanels.dk

LG’s 15-inch OLED TV is extremely thin and even though it has an external controller box on the back of the screen, one cannot help being captivated by the display's thin profile of only 1.7 mm, which reveals some of the potential of the OLEDs technology.

Picture quality is fantastic as well. You can experience the same deep black reproduction that FlatpanelsDK found in our review of the Sony XEL-1. The deep black reproduction was even evident in the brightly lit room.

The OLED panel on LGs 15-inch OLED had too saturated colours, however, but nevertheless the colours looked vibrant and nuanced. Also, the LG OLED-TV maintained a virtually 100% identical picture from wide viewing angles.

All in all, LG's 15" OLED TV - not yet named – reveals some of the potential succes of the OLED technology, which Sony initiated with the XEL-1.

We are very excited to take a closer look at the model when it arrives in Europe. Until then, we can only reaffirm that OLED is the future.
