LG’s <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1326134829><b>55-inch OLED-TV</b></a> were a major attraction at CES. FlatpanelsHD spent time with the TV at two separate occasions and had a chance to examine it. Here are our hands-on impressions.<br /><br /><h3>LG's OLED-TV hands-on</h3>LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV is as large as Samsung’s <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1327312322><b>Super OLED-TV</b></a> and both were unveiled at CES. LG uses a different OLED pixel implementation but the TV holds the same general OLED picture characteristics.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/lgoledhands-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/lgoledhands-1.jpg" alt="LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on</i></p><br />And LG’s OLED-TV looks amazing. Many people gathered in front of the TV at the booth presentation but we also had a chance to see it in a more relaxing environment. Pictures from the OLED panel looked extremely detailed and although LG had added some artificial sharpness to the TV panel, it looked fantastic.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/lgoledhands-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/lgoledhands-2.jpg" alt="LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on</i></p><br />The colors were vivid and intense (although boosted) and just like previous OLED panels we have examined, black depth was so intense that it made pictures look almost alive – even though LG’s OLED panel is glossy. Viewing angles appear to be perfect and the response time was so fast that we noticed no motion blurring at all during our time with the TV.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/lgoledhands-5l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/lgoledhands-5.jpg" alt="LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on</i></p><br />LG’s OLED-TV has an extremely thin bezel and cabinet. However, at CES LG showcased the TV with a mounted box solution on the back with input connectors, but LG also stressed that this is not necessarily the final product design of the OLED-TV. LG says that the OLED panel is 4 mm thick and that the TV weighs just 7.5 kilograms. The stand is not the final one either, LG says.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/lgoledhands-3l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/lgoledhands-3.jpg" alt="LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on</i></p><br />LG will incorporate their Cinema 3D technology that is a passive 3D system, relying on inexpensive polarized 3D glasses. Samsung utilizes an active 3D system with active 3D glasses on their OLED-TV. LG did not demonstrate the 3D capabilities of their OLED-TV at CES so we left without any 3D impressions but the OLED-technology should provide great 3D picture quality with the passive 3D system, too. We will be able to see it in action later in 2012.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/lgoledhands-4l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/lgoledhands-4.jpg" alt="LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV hands-on</i></p><br />LG’s OLED-TV looked amazing – just like <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1327312322><b>Samsung’s OLED-TV</b></a>. No one at CES had a fair opportunity to compare to the TVs side-by-side but we feel that the two TVs exhibited many of the same pictures characteristics, and pretty much no problems. We obviously strive to take a closer look at a later occasion and are working on getting products in for reviews, too, but we need some more time before we can promise anything.<br /><br />LG’s 55-inch OLED-TV will be available in the second half of 2012. The price remains unknown.
