LG SUPER UHD TV (2018): Unboxing & Review

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

What's up guys Mike here the Detroit Board with the all-new LG super UHD TV for 2018 now this replaces the Nano cell TV from last year which I also featured on my channel now we still have the Nano cell display technology on this TV but it has seen a number of significant upgrades including full array LED backlighting for more precise local dimming this is a big improvement over the edge lighting common to most LCD class TVs this is also the latest product to join LG's thin qai platform which allows LG's suite of devices to work together also exciting is the addition of the Google

Voice assistant built right into webOS now I've been a fan of LG TVs for a number of years so I'm gonna thank them for hooking me up with our newest model so I could take a close look at it and for sponsoring this video so the version I'm looking at here is the top-of-the-line 65 inch SK 95 which is also available as a 55 inch now there's a number of models in this range with most of them sharing the same features and display but this is the most stylish of them all and we'll take a closer look at some of those premium details now if you want to know more

About the available models and sizes I'll leave that linked in the description below so you can check it out so one of those premium details that stands out is the solid metal crescent shaped stem which has a really nice light gold or champagne finish the stand comes in multiple pieces which you can put together pretty easily and these screws are included in the box now before taking the packaging off of the TV I want to install the stand first by laying the TV down on the box so I have enough clearance there is a cover panel on the back that pops off really

Easily so you can slot the stand into place and screw it down once everything is installed you can pop the panel back on which keeps it very nice and seamless speaking of seamless The Stand also has built-in cable management so I was able to route all of my cables including my HDMI cables through that channel this means I no longer have those unsightly dangling cables spoiling in my view while we're back here we can check out the port which are separated by rear-facing and side facing so the rear-facing ports include one of the three USB ports Ethernet optical audio

Out and the composite AV port for the included patch cable on the side we get no less than four HDMI ports and two more USB ports also new with this generation is a set of really impressive down facing speakers with Dolby Atmos with really surprised me most ombre speakers tend to sound pretty thin or flat but these speakers deliver really rich and detailed sound that manages to fill a room without adding satellite speakers so if you want to avoid adding the sound bar this TV is definitely the one to look at also included is LG's magic remote controller this is a pretty

Familiar design for LG we've seen this for a number of years this has an accelerometer built into it so you can actually Mouse around on the screen by waving the remote in the air it works extremely well I'm actually a big fan of this remote we also have a scroll wheel on the d-pad so you can mouse around on the interface and we have all pretty familiar Universal controls such as a voice button for interacting with the TV as well as some dedicated hot buttons for Amazon and Netflix right on the remote so with a stand in place we can get the TV upright and pull off the rest

Of the packaging we have a few more pieces of plastic to pull off along the edges and the sides the sides of the TV have this really nice gold metallic detail which matches the gold finish on the stand it's definitely not as thin as an OLED TV but the design here is still really attractive the plastic back side of the TV has a smooth texture to finish that looks and feels a lot like brushed metal besides the ports the only other thing we'll find back here is a vent along the top to keep the chassis cool now the panel of the TV uses two technologies to

Improve image quality and brings it closer to the performance of OLED one of them is the now cell display which improves the color vibrancy contrast and off angle performance so there is very little distortion when viewing this TV from multiple angles in fact LG has a really great demo showing you how this technology works in real life and I'll leave that demo linked in the description below so you can check it out but the big news really with this generation is full array LED backlighting which not only makes the display noticeably brighter but also

Allows the TV to precisely control the lighting to preserve contrast and minimize light bleeding this substantially improves the black levels while punching up the highlights this makes this TV fantastic for HDR content since it is able to produce extremely vibrant colors and vivid contrast speaking of HDR that supports all the major formats like Dolby vision advanced HDR by Technicolor HDR 10 hlg local dimming is something you can adjust understandings in fact you can turn it completely off and this is where

You can really demonstrate how this works so when local dimming is turned on you'll see those black levels drop down and those highlights pop out and it definitely makes a big difference all of this technology is especially important for an HDR display so for HDR formats you need a bright display with a lot of contrast and vibrant colors to really get effective results and I separately the case in this panel it's extremely vibrant and very bright and crisp without blowing out the black levels one of the other great new features with this TV is Google Voice assistant so

They should be exclusive to Android TV OS so now we get it in webOS which is still my favorite interface for Smart TVs so once you've activated the Google assistant on your TV once you hit the button on the remote controller you get full access to the Google Voice assistant and all of its features so man this TV really made me like LCD again that solves many of the problems of traditional LCD by giving those true black levels along with great effects is viewing and bright vivid colors with nano cell but we also get a fantastic set of Dolby Atmos speakers and one of

The best os's for any Smart TVs so overall this is a great package alright guys hope you enjoyed let's look at LG's lay this super UHD TV if you guys want to know more I'll leave a link in the description below if you guys enjoyed this video please let me know with a like and I'll see you again in my next video
