LG OLED65E6 – 3D Picture Quality

If you’re even slightly into 3D, you’ll love watching it on the OLED65E6. The combination of the screen’s native UHD resolution and LG’s flicker-free passive 3D technology proves a match made in heaven, delivering 3D images that look bright, colourful, clean, and crisp. It also isn’t at all fatiguing, even over really prolonged viewing sessions. It’s possible to get through James Cameron’s 3D reworking of Titanic without getting a headache.

The clarity is scarcely dented by the crosstalk double-ghosting that plague lesser, usually active, 3D TVs. The OLED65E6’s stunning contrast performance helps it deliver a beautifully expansive, refined sense of 3D space.

LG OLED65E6 – Sound Quality

The sound bar attached to the OLED65E6 isn’t just for show. It pumps out a scale of sound way beyond its fairly modest proportions, sending audio left, right, up, down and directly forward to create an impressively huge soundstage. It entices you into the world you’re watching almost as effectively as the TV’s stunning pictures.

There’s a beautifully open quality to the mid-range that lets the sound ebb and swell to accommodate changes in a soundtrack’s mood. It handles male and female voices alike with real conviction. The mid-range is so smoothly integrated with the soundbar’s surprisingly potent bass and sweet treble that you never hear the join.

In short, the OLED65E6 is at least up there with the Panasonic 58DX802 in the fight for best-sounding TV of the year.

Should I buy an LG OLED65E6?

With its truly amazing picture-on-glass design, brilliant integrated soundbar, mostly awesome picture quality and friendly smart TV engine, the OLED65E6 is seriously hard to resist. The OLED65E6 is in many ways state of the art – though whether that’s enough to justify its £5,000 price is a matter for your bank manager.

In terms of the competition, LG’s OLED55C6 still offers a strong OLED performance for less money if you don’t mind its curved screen. Meanwhile, the much cheaper Samsung UE55KS9000 and the Sony KD-75XD9405 put a strong case for what LCD is capable of in HDR terms. But if you’re buying OLED, and if you want the best OLED has to offer, then the OLED65E6 is the one you’re looking for.

Verdict
