Best LG TVs at a glance
LG C9 OLED
The best LG 4k TV is the LG C9 OLED. Like any TV in their OLED lineup, there’s no backlighting and it can switch off individual pixels, so it displays perfect blacks.
It displays a wide color gamut and has good color volume for HDR content, but unfortunately, it only has decent HDR peak brightness so it can’t bring out vivid colors the way it should.
Along with its perfect contrast ratio, it has outstanding viewing angles, so you can place this TV in a wide seating arrangement and not lose any image accuracy.
Why buy: ♦ Image remains accurate when viewed from the side. ♦ Nearly instantaneous response time and very low input lag
Downside ♦ Nearly instantaneous response time and very low input lag.
If you’re worried about permanent burn-in risk and prefer having a LED TV, then the LG SM9500 can be your option. It delivers a good picture quality. It has fantastic out-of-the-box color accuracy, which is good news if you don’t want to get your TV calibrated.
It supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision, and since it can display a wide color gamut and has excellent HDR peak brightness, colors look vivid and highlights pop in HDR content.
If you’re looking for a LED TV instead of an OLED, this is a good choice.
Why buy: ♦ Can get very bright. ♦ Image remains accurate at an angle. ♦ Very low input lag.
Downside: Blacks look gray in a dark room.

Why buy: ♦ Outstanding low input lag. ♦ Image remains accurate when viewed at an angle.

With so many outstanding TV brands out there, why should you choose LG over the rest?
Firstly, LG has become the poster child for today’s OLED TVs, as a major supplier of OLED panels to its competitors like Panasonic, Sony, or Hisense.
LG’s OLED sets tend to have a slightly warmer ‘pop’ to colors than some competitors, but the difference is pretty small unless you’re looking for it.
Samsung also doesn’t make OLED sets, preferring to push its range of QLED (quantum dot) televisions: ultra-bright LED panels that use a metallic filter to enhance color and contrast without suffering from OLED’s dim output.
