Today in this review we will talk about a Smart TV from the LG house , available in three different sizes: 55, 65 and 77 inches. Each suitable for the most diverse needs. So let’s start as usual by checking the technical specifications of this product:
- Screen technology: OLED
- Screen Resolution: UHD 4K
- HDR: Yes
- Internet and wifi: Yes
- USB ports: 3
- HDMI ports: 4
- Ethernet (LAN): Yes
- Headphone output: 1
As always, these are just some of the technical specifications of the model in question, as you well know the characteristics of this type are hundreds and fill the instruction manuals. But now let’s do our dirty work and let’s go through the details of the televisions that we are going to analyze. Obviously we can only start from UHD 4K technologies , the definition of this technology is obviously a guarantee of unparalleled image quality.
However, it is another technology that distinguishes this product and that seems to clearly separate it from any other model of television. We are obviously talking about OLED technology . Everything in this television revolves around this new technology, which we feel like it undoubtedly beats the now outdated LED technology. But what is it in detail?
Quite simply called a television with LED technology, it uses a liquid crystal panel backlit by a series of “lamps”, more technically than light emitting diodes. In OLED technology there is no backlight , as it is the panel itself that lights up. In practice, it is as if each pixel emits its own light, which opens up unparalleled possibilities of definition and color.
The use of this technology obviously has a number of significant advantages. Starting from the design of the television, having a panel without the need for backlighting, it allows you to create even thinner TVs that literally become a picture on the wall. Minimal and elegant now with the addition of the OLED, the side profile is almost zero.
Turning instead to turning on the television, the first thing you will notice with OLED technology is the fantastic brilliance and precision of each individual color. Images reach extraordinary peaks of definition by showing us colors that drag us into what we look at.
Not only OLED, however, among the technologies we also have the dolby pair: Dolby Vision IQ and Dolby Atmos, shared with the A16LA Series . The first allows us to adjust the images according to the content, the second helps us immerse ourselves with an exceptional three-dimensional audio effect.
Obviously it is always a Smart television and as such there will be all the typical applications of a product of this type. Streaming platforms, internet, social networks, no limits to how interactive this TV can be.
Furthermore, the new LG model, thanks also to the previously mentioned technologies, becomes particularly suitable for a rapidly growing sector: gaming . With the advent of more and more advanced technologies, televisions must also keep up and provide the right supports to showcase your favorite games at their best. The LG OLED B16LA TV seems to perfectly respect this intent. Not only by maintaining cutting-edge technologies, but also with real collaborations with gaming leaders, in fact LG televisions are official partners of X-Box, Envy and AMD.
In short, gaming takes a step forward with this kind of product, and we guarantee that playing on a 55.65 or 77 inch panel will be an incredible experience. Also thanks to the screen refresh rate capable of reaching 120Hz, a very respectable value for an OLED TV of this size.
A final mention deserves the “Sport” sector of the TV, thanks to a series of devices and technologies introduced by LG, sporting events are incredibly fluid and focused. This aspect will be particularly appreciated by all fans of Football, Basketball or Motors; who will be able to enjoy a sporting event in all its details.
So let’s move on to our sore points, which as always we try to find in every product we review. As always, finding flaws in such advanced products is hard and sometimes impossible work. In these cases, the price is certainly not one of the best factors, the use of OLED technology in addition to all the included advantages, increases the price and not a little. This is why it remains a fairly high-end product.
