  • Manufacturer: LG

If you've been looking to buy OLED but have been waiting for prices to drop, this is your chance. The LG 55OLEDB6V is one of the least expensive in the range, costing a fraction of the premium flagship model. It's as big a bargain as £2,999 can ever be, because the performance isn't far off that of its £6,000 sibling.

So the design isn't as pretty and it doesn't have a built in soundbar, but you'll forget all about that when you see the lush blacks and pin-point lighting precision. Oh and it's flat, which is nice for people who don't want a curved screen (nor live in a lighthouse).

Buy Now at Currys from £2,299

At time of review the LG 55OLEDB6V was available for £2,999.

Our Score:

9

My vote would go to the Curry's exclusive PANASONIC
VIERA TX-40CX700B+.

A fantastic 40" 4K tv. It has a Firefox interface which is quick and supports Netflix and Amazon in Ultra HD.

I mostly use mine as a 4K PC monitor as it supports 4K over HDMI 2.0 at 60hz and 444 chroma. I tried many monitors including the newer G-sync 144 hz models and nothing compares to the Panasonic's image quality and colours. Input lag is 25ms using Leo Bodner test, as I am not a competative gamer this is fast enough for me.

I have paired mine with 2 x Evga GTX 980 ti classified cards and at 4K 60fps gaming has a new lease of life. I now couldn't go back to anything less than 4k.

It is easily the best television/monitor I have ever owned and I managed to pick mine up for just over £500 with a 5 year Panasonic warranty.

Samsung UE48JU7500 - 'a severe amount of motion blur' and you score it 9/10?

Nobody talks about customer service or warranty's? What good as a phone, if it dies before the warranty is up and stuff like this : http://globalnews.ca/news/1026... happens? Samsung has even paid cnet to do new reviews on products they already have done so on : http://www.businessinsider.com... and then do stuff like this http://www.idownloadblog.com/2... and this http://www.businessinsider.com... . Simply Google, Samsung Customer Service Reviews....The warranty of a TV and customer service, should matter as much, if not more, than the capabilities. I know from experience.

Excellent point.

An unbiased review of Customer Services is long overdue.

I would concur with your appraisal. I recently picked up the Panasonic TX-60CX740E and has great picture quality. Previously had a Panasonic Plasma, but power surge destroyed it.

Before making the purchase, I compared it to several Samsung models including the JS7200, JU7500, and JS8500. In my opinion the Panny came on top. The picture quality is more accurate than the Samsung models and very little motion blur if any.

I would recommend the CX740 or another model in the same range.

Samsung will bring its QLED to the table in the very near future with a greater HDR presents to enhance the color spectrum within the 4K realm..
