PROS

  • Offering greater than 4K resolution, the 6EF9500 enhances the aesthetics of existing Blu-ray and HD movies. It also supports emerging HDR content.
  • The screen is surrounded by a bezel so thin it is barely noticeable, drawing further attention to the awesomeness of the TV and its picture.
  • The TV comes with two remotes, one of which is dedicated to smooth navigation of LG's webOS apps.

CONS

  • Pricing is on the steep side.
  • Because it runs on webOS, the 65EF9500 supports fewer apps than competing Android TVs.
  • The input lag is higher than the norm, and you might see some judder when viewing movies.
The 65EF9500 is the first OLED TV from LG to come with a flat rather than a curved screen. The resulting picture is so bright and beautiful that it practically makes you feel like putting on sunglasses. Unlike the much more widely available LCD technology, OLED produces pixels that can be individually lit with no backlight to produce perfect blacks and resplendent colors. The 65EF9500 comes with a transparent stand that makes the TV seem to float magically in the air. No sunglasses are included, although the product ships with two pairs of passive 3D glasses.

Like other OLED TVs, the EF9500 is ghastly thin, with most of the panel about as thick as a pencil. The almost bezel-free screen perches atop an equally svelte and minimal silver stand. The two are connected by a band of clear plastic, giving the TV the appearance that it floats in mid-air.

One other aspect of the EF9500's outstanding picture quality is its incredible color rendering. The wide color gamut produced by this display was so amazingly vibrant and accurate, which in turn gave the onscreen color palette a natural and life-like presentation. With that said, there are not many televisions currently available that can truly match the color rendering of the EF9500 as well as LG's other OLED displays, in my opinion.

As with plasma, each and every pixel in an OLED TV's screen can produce its own individual light and colour output, rather than having to share an external light source as happens with LCD TVs. This pixel-level degree of light control clearly has the potential to deliver levels of contrast and shadow detail it's hard to imagine current LCD technologies ever managing to rival. We've already seen enough OLED screens in action to know for certain that the technology effortlessly handles the dark picture parts other technologies cannot reach.

First up,...it’s one of the only high end OLED TV’s that has a gorgeous flat display. But that’s just the start, the LG 65EF9500 also features something called “Immersive 3D” which produces astonishingly realistic, lifelike 3D images that are designed to, as the name suggests, immerse you in the content.

LG’s new EF9500 series flat OLED TV is almost exactly like its curved predecessor (the EG9600) save the curve and the fact that it can handle HDR content, both streamed and delivered via HDMI. So it would be fair to ask why I am so moved by this particular LG OLED when the last one failed to get a perfect 10. The answer, I believe, lay in the fact that I evaluated the EF9500 in my home among family and friends for nearly a month, and now that there’s a big gaping hole in my living room (and heart) where it once stood, All I can think about is getting it back.

Once in a very long time, a TV comes along with such a sharp, lustrous picture that it hypnotizes nearly everyone who sees it. The LG 65EF9500 is that TV. Its picture is so bright and sharp you'll feel like you have to wear shades.

The EF950 includes the latest version of LG's excellent Smart+ system powered by webOS and, whilst not hugely different from last year, the system remains highly intuitive and easy to use. It’s now a bit faster and slicker in terms of its response and there's a new menu short-cut added to the right hand side of the screen that you access by pressing a dedicated button on the remote. Otherwise it's the same as last year, so if you scroll to the left, you go backwards through the apps you have previously opened and if you scroll to the right you can access all the available apps

So far, organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology has primarily been limited to curved displays manufactured by LG, like the Editors' Choice EG9600$5,series. Curved screens haven't exactly wowed us as a compelling feature for premium HDTVs, but until now we haven't been able to see if a flat panel OLED can produce the same results. That changes with the EF9500 series of ultra high-definition (UHD, or 4K) HDTVs.

The EF9500 is more expensive than pretty much any other TV of its size. Its light output, video processing and some aspects of screen uniformity aren't quite as impressive as some other TVs.

The television’s color representation was outstanding and I saw nuances that I had never seen before. In addition to television shows and movies, I also watched sports to see how it would handle fast movement. Though there were some initial issues with the fast motion, a quick change to one of the “expert” modes built into the screen settings optimized everything from color balance to contrast and the blurring was eliminated.
