For the second year in a row, LG’s OLED display has received the “King of TV” award at the annual Value Electronics TV shootout. The audience and experts agreed that the 65” 65EG9600 4K OLED outperformed the LCD models.
LG’s 4K OLED beats the LCDs
For many of us it should come as no surprise that the OLED TV won. Here at FlatpanelsHD we have an OLED as our reference TV, and LG continues to push the amazing technology forward. Last year, LG entered the shootout with its HD OLED and this year it entered with a curved 65” 4K OLED.
The following TVs were included in the 2015 TV shootout:
LG’s 65EG9600 (4K OLED)
Panasonic’s 65CX850U (4K LCD with backlit LED)
Samsung’s 78JS9500 (4k LCD with backlit LED)
Sony’s 75X940C (4K LCD with backlit LED)
- "This is the second consecutive year that LG OLED has taken the crown, beating its LED counterparts in an intense side-by-side comparison," said TV Shootout organizer Robert Zohn, owner of Value Electronics, a leading specialty retailer based in Scarsdale, N.Y. "The experts and CE Week attendees have spoken: OLED TVs deliver superior picture quality compared to contemporary TV technologies."
The results of the shootout are as follows.
65" 65EG9600 is available for $8999. Later this year, LG will update the EG9600 with HDR capabilities. LG is also planning to add more 4K OLED TVs to its line-up, including flat and larger models. Look forward to a full review of LG’s 4K OLED TV here on FlatpanelsHD soon, too.
