The long, long wait is over and vaguely affordable big-screen OLED entertainment has finally arrived. And what style it's arrived in, with the 55EA980W imperiously rising to the challenge of living up to all the hype OLED has built up around itself over...

The LG 55EA980V really is a ground-breaking TV. It delivers astoundingly good picture quality thanks to its perfect black levels, amazing contrast and great colour performance. It looks great too and has a good smart TV system. I only hope that LG can...

Patience might well be a virtue but LG were certainly starting to try ours when it came to OLED. In fact the Korean manufacturer was becoming something of a tease, constantly showing us OLED TVs that never seemed to materialise in the shops or arrive for...

The first proper OLED TV to arrive on our test benches has not disappointed. It effortlessly lives up to the hype by instantly producing - at the first time of asking, let's not forget - the finest all-round picture quality we've seen from any HD TV.If...

The LG 55EA980W is the second curved OLED screen we've seen in recent months (see our Samsung curved OLED TV review ), and we're drawn to it immediately. Part of it is the curved screen that's been dividing opinions, but the other part is the OLED TV...

With a true perfect black, infinite contrast, wide viewing angles, no trace of clouding, no ghosting and low power use, the first OLED TV to pass through our test lab does so with flying colours. LG's 55EA980W certainly delivers on its promises! Image...

Curved TVs are said to be the next big thing in television tech for your living room, but do they live up to the hype? We put the LG 55EA980W curved OLED TV to the test to find out - hit play to find out our...

LG's curved OLED TV looks impressive. No matter how you feel about the curved panel you will be amazed by how thin and impressive the TV is. It is so thin that it is hard to fathom how LG has managed to fit all the hardware into the set, because it still...

We normally consider first generation technology something that wouldn't be suitable for real world use, but this is not a normal TV. OLED technology has been brewing in the labs for the better part of the last decade and we are finally seeing the fruits...

The LG 55EA980W is the second OLED TV we've tested, and like the first, it delivers a picture that blows away any LED LCD television, and eclipses even the best-performing plasmas, owing largely to its ability to render true blacks. Should OLED displays...

Vet, maar duurHet WK komt eraan. Zojuist is officieel bekend gemaakt dat Van Der Vaart is afgehaakt en we het dus moeten doen met Eredivisie-middelmaat als Daley Blind of Jordy Clasie. Dat wordt natuurlijk niets. Misschien kan een gebogen televisie ons...

Affiché aujourd'hui moins de 6 000 euros, ce téléviseur OLED LG 55EA980V bénéficie d'un design superbe et donne vraiment l'impression que l'image est en suspension. Ajoutez à cela les haut-parleurs translucides intégrés dans la bavette en plexiglas...

R edan innan vi stoppar kontakten i väggen kan vi göra en lista på alla de häpnadsväckande faktorer som gör LG 55EA980W till en tv-apparat utöver det vanliga. Den är exceptionellt lätt (17 kilo!), den är exceptionellt tunn (4,3 millimeter!) och skärmen...

È appena iniziata una nuova era e LG punta a diventarne il portabandiera. Parliamo degli schermi OLED curvi che iniziano a comparire timidamente sul mercato, integrati non solo nei dispositivi mobile (LG Flex) ma anche nei televisori .LG è stata in grado...

Til tross for at vi har sett OLED-modeller på messer i flere år allerede, er det altså først nå vi pakker opp LGs buede OLED på kontoret. Forsinkelsene har altså vært mange , men nå er ventetiden endelig over. Vel, helt over skal vi ikke si at den er. ...

Vi gillar LG 55LA980W är beviset på att OLED-tekniken har en överlägsen bild. Kontrasten och dynamiken är bländande, färgerna är spektakulära och svärtan är lika kolsvart som den mörkaste natt. Helt enkelt den bästa TV-bilden vi har skådat! Vi gillar...

Det er svinagtig dyrt, det har et ret specielt buet udseende, og lydkvaliteten er ikke ligefrem inspirerende. Men i dette tilfælde gør det ikke noget. LG 55EA980W har nemlig givet os en forsmag på, hvad der er på vej: En ny generation af tv'er med en...

La technologie OLED écrase le LCD dans tous les domaines. Elle offre tous les avantages du plasma sans ses défauts (faible luminosité, petits scintillements pour certains yeux sensibles, et énorme consommation électrique). Ce téléviseur est donc...

Den er svinaktig dyr, den har et nokså spesielt buet utseende og lydkvaliteten er ikke veldig inspirerende. Men i dette tilfellet gjør det ikke noe: LG 55EA980W har nemlig gitt oss en forsmak på hva som kommer: En ny generasjon TV-er med en...

Noir parfait, contraste infini, larges angles de vision, aucun clouding, aucune rémanence, consommation électrique maîtrisée... le premier téléviseur Oled testé par notre laboratoire tient ses promesses. La qualité d'image est tout simplement...
