LG OLED55B8SLC User Review

    The B8 is my first OLED TV and I'd never go back to LCD
    Review of LG OLED55B8SLC OLED TV by steocullen91, Jan 13, 2019.
    After using an AMOLED phone for a long time, I knew that OLED screens looked amazing, especially with those perfect blacks and amazing shadow detail. I seen some OLED sets on display multiple times and always wanted one. I can tell you that I do not regret purchasing this set one bit, it's beautiful. From SDR content to HDR, the colours and contrast on this set are out of this world compared to any other TV I've ever owned. Input lag is really low too, so gaming on this TV is also a great experience. I also find the speakers really good on this set for what they are. They sound really clear and even pack some bass, though it clearly won't have the type of sub bass which you'd hear from a sub woofer. The only downside is the ABL which you can't disable, though that's likely just there to try prevent image retention/burn in. Overall, I'm really happy with this TV.
    This item was purchased for €1,222 from Power City in 2019. The reviewer still owns this product.
