BLACK FRIDAY 65 INCH TV BUYING GUIDE
Black Friday 4K OLED screens are pinnacle of TV technology and as it stands LG has pretty much cornered the market. The company has four new 4K OLED TV ranges. The top of the range LG G-Series is the LG OLED65G6V It is a 65 inch screen which will cost around £6,000. The G6 certainly looks every bit the premium TV. It is LG’s thinnest ever screen, measuring just over 2.5 millimetres thick, and has a unibody design, so you should not see any screw holes or bolts. The main design aspect on the flagship G-Series is the integrated sound base. This is a 4.2 channel speaker developed by Harman Kardon, which not only delivers a bigger bassier sound than average flat screen, but also folds neatly under the TV if you want to mount the screen on your wall. It is the picture that goes a long way to justify that hefty price tag. The combination of Ultra HD, OLED and high dynamic range (or HDR) makes for a brilliantly dynamic picture with bright but natural colours, alongside deep but detail black levels. Whether you are watching Ultra HD Blu-rays, HD TV programmes, or even standard definition content, the LG G6 delivers quite simply one of the best TV pictures we have ever seen. Thanks to LG’s WebOS software you will get a slick TV interface complete with Amazon, Netflix, iPlayer, and more. And there are not one, but two remote controls to help you navigate all that content. All told, it is hard to find much wrong with this TV, that is apart from the price tag. And that is where the next model in the range comes into play. The Black Friday LG OLED65E6V is £1,000 cheaper than its flagship sibling but delivers a very similar experience making it arguably a more tempting proposition. The main difference comes with the attached sound bar. This model has the same design but it is a smaller, less powerful speaker than on the flagship, and sure enough it is not quite as sonically impressive. But in pretty much every other way, including all the important technical innards, this is the same screen. That includes the connections. There are four HDMI inputs, three USB inputs, analogue and digital audio outputs and, of course, wired and wireless internet options, as well as the necessary on demand and catch up TV apps. Most crucially the picture quality here is every bit as good as the flagship model. 4K content, whether from a disk or stream, looks stunning, thanks to vivid colours and impressive insight, and what is more, this TV can also do the business with lower resolution content. HD streams and broadcasts are clean and stable, while picture noise is kept to a minimum when it comes to DVDs and standard definition. So, what we have here is two superb 4K OLED TVs, which both deliver a stylish design, all the necessary features and functions, and class-leading sound and picture performance. Ultimately, they cement LG’s position at the top of the TV tree. But which is the best? While the flagship G6 does deliver slightly better sound the E6 matches it in every other way, most crucially in terms of features and picture performance. And at £1,000 cheaper, we think that makes it the smart choice.
