Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The picture is superb and angle viewing is excellent.
  • This TV is amazingly thin.
  • The blacks are pure for great contrast levels.

CONS

  • $2000 might be inexpensive for an OLED TV, but it is still a lot of money.
  • Although the top is thin, the body widens toward the bottom.
  • The remote lacks backlighting.
LG’s 55EG9100 is a curved OLED 55-inch smart TV. OLED is a technology unique to LG in which the TV’s pixels produce their own light, unlike an LCD screen that uses a backlight. As a result, a pixel can turn off entirely, creating a “perfect black” in LG’s words. That means greater contrast, and contrast ratio is a key metric of picture quality. The LG 55EG9100's picture holds up even when viewed from wide angles. The set is incredibly thin and the top portion of the TV measures less than a quarter inch. This 3D-compatible HD TV has built-in Wi-Fi and WebOS 2.0, so you can connect directly to all your favorite streaming apps.

Writing 1,500 words that just point out how incredible something looks over-and-over seems redundant, but it is what I want to do.

Simply put, this is an outstanding TV, marking an important step for a still-fledgling display technology. But it's not going to appeal to everyone, especially those hungry for big screens and 4K resolution.

The LG 55EG9100 delivers an excellent 1080p picture capable of rendering brilliant pyrotechnics and deep blacks. Even with the relatively lower price tag of $2,000, however, forward-looking buyers may be more interested in 4K ultra-HD models that support HDR
