LG OLED55B6 User Review

    Awesome TV
    Review of LG OLED55B6 OLED TV by Steve_P, Oct 16, 2016.
    My previous Panasonic Plasma TV had failed after 12 years of service so I had to buy a suitable replacement and my choices quickly narrowed to either a Panasonic 58" DX902 or this LG 55" B6. In the end I chose the LG OLED and have been in viewing heaven ever since. A real feast for the eyes. This TV is even better value since the price has dropped to around circa. £2,300.00 which can be bartered down even further.

    The only downside if you read the forums is that getting a decent panel can be somewhat of a lottery with extreme vignetting affecting some individual panels.

    However, if you get a trouble free panel in the russian roulette of purchase & delivery then this is a fantastic set.

    P.S. Never buy any equipment with an issue on the hope of a fix by the manufacturer at a later date but the HDR10 stutter as mentioned in the review is due to be fixed by a firmware update. Read the forums.
    This item was purchased for £2,650 from Richer Sounds in 2016. The reviewer still owns this product.

    Pros

    • Stunning picture quality - e.g. 4k UHD res & contrast ratios with inky blacks
    • WebOS 3.0 Smart TV OS / interface
    • No backlight bleed as associated with LED/LCD panels

    Cons

    • No 3D
    • Could do with more apps in the TV's app store - such as UKTV Play, etc.
    • USB peripherals are limited to just LG models, e.g. webcam, keyboard etc.
