LG 55EC9300 OLED HDTV Review

LG EC9300-25

TV sets haven’t changed much in the last couple of years in terms of hard ware, yes we have gone to 4K displays on LED panels, which tend to have problems displaying  true blacks and contrast ratio. LG’s new  EC9300 OLED HDTV enter into the fray to changes how you view TV. the EC900 remarkably thin OLED TV opens up a whole new possibility of style and design with a depth of only 0.17″ at its thinnest point, the same thickness as a pencil.  Taking this HDTV set out of its box, I was delighted to see no assemble was required and I could easily mount the set on my stand. Right there with the TV off you can clear see it beauty and why OLED is talked about so much… the screen just looks black.

So what are the benefits of having an OLED  HDTV. OLED self-lighting pixels are able to switch on and off individually, offering the first infinite contrast ratio. Contrast ratio measures the range from the brightest whites on the screen to the darkest blacks. These deep blacks seem to melt away, for a greater sense of realism and depth on all content. Which is especially useful for gaming. LG’s 4 Color Pixel technology adds a white sub-pixel to the conventional three colors (red, green and blue) that enhances both color range and accuracy. This considerably improves the OLED pixels’ ability to express realistic colors and represents a giant step ahead of conventional RGB displays.  What all that means is the you get deep blacks and non of those white patches will watching TV at night. Also the colors come out as been more vibrant and distinct.

I was heavily  impressed with he performance of the LG 55EC9300 OLED HDTV, from gaming to watching content. the OLED display has been a joy to view. The one mark you could give this TV set is its priee at $3,499 but I am sure in the coming months with OLED adoption, we will see the prices drop. But for me the LG 55EC9300 is the best HDTV set I have used in 2014
