PROS

  • LG's newest 4K OLED TV benefits from having a flat--not curved--screen.
  • The 55EF9500 OLED TV support High Dynamic Range images, both streamed and via HDMI.
  • This TV delivers pitch-black shadows and punchy highlights, and the impressive light output makes it a good option for both dim and well-lit rooms.

CONS

  • Screen uniformity is an area where LG's otherwise perfect OLEDs could stand some improvement.
  • Three HDMI inputs aren't enough, especially for a TV in this price range.
  • LG's OLEDs are expensive compared with their LCD TV competition.
With 4K and High Dynamic Range capability and a flat rather than curved screen, LG’s 55EF9500 OLED is the TV that videophiles have been waiting for. The 55-inch EF9500 delivers images with deep blacks and bright, eye-catching highlights, and picture quality remains consistent even at far off-center seats. The only thing that appears to need improvement is screen uniformity. The price is higher than some competitors, but OLED sets in general are more expensive than LCD models with the same screen size. The EF9500 also comes in a 65-inch version.

As this is a 4K TV you would expect us to kick off this section by raving about 4K. However, we’d argue there is another attribute that contributes even more to the stunning images that the LG 65EF9500 produces, and that is OLED coupled with LG’s perfect black technology.

The passive 3D on this TV is great. You don't see the alternating lines the way you do on the 1080p OLED TVs.

Inky, deep and perfect, the EF9500 delivers the complete lack of light I've come to expect from dark areas of an OLED screen, and the corresponding pop of excellent contrast.

LG puts good focus on sound quality and realized that not everyone is going to go out and get a sound bar or surround sound system. With the EF9500 they've passed the responsibility to Harman Kardon.

It’s no secret that there are other gorgeous televisions available now with much lower price tags. But truth be told, none of those televisions come with the visual quality (even on non-Ultra HD content) and beautiful design offered in the EF9500.
