LG’s Best OLED 4K UltraHD TV: Unboxing & Review

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

What's up guys this is Mike the Detroit Borg with a video on what has become one of my favorite pieces of tech I own this is LG's 65 inch v8 OLED TV and I've been using it for the past four months so the e-series is one of LG's top-end OLED TVs with a truly stunning on glass design right now it's actually a great time to buy one of LG's OLED TVs because they've been heavily discounted so for example the ee8 I'm reviewing here right now is $31.99 normally they retail for $4,000 but if you don't really care about the on glass design or the latest processor you can get the b8 OLED which retails for 2299 down a thousand dollars

From its MSRP really the big difference between the b8 and the e8 is the alpha 7 versus alpha 9 cpu the alpha 9 delivers big improvements in noise reduction sharpness depth enhancement and color reproduction but for the most part you're really not going to notice a difference between the b8 and the EI so I think it's definitely worth the cost savings in terms of unboxing this TV the proper way to do this is to make sure you keep the packaging on the TV before you install the stand so you don't damage anything when you lay it down so I'm actually gonna lay it down on the

Box so I can get access to the bottom of this TV now the stand design here is unlike anything I've seen before basically this entire TV is a sheet of glass in which everything else is attached to and includes the display and all of the electronics and the stand so the stand basically fastens to the glass panel on the bottom edge of the TV there's actually a metal strip along the glass which the stand attaches to the clever thing about this stand designed is that it looks like the TV is basically floating in mid-air this is especially nice if you have a backlit

Setup like I do so I have a Huell ight on the back of my TV which lights up the wall behind it and again magnifies the fact that this TV basically has a floating stand design so in terms of design they really take advantage of the OLED technology which allows the panel to be extremely thin because there's no backlight in fact if you look at the edge of the TV it's almost as thin as an iPhone it's even thinner than that when you consider that the OLED panel is only half of this thickness half of this is actually the glass upon which the OLED display is attached to obviously this is

Something you don't really appreciate from a distance but it's especially nice when you open this up for the first time as always there's quite a few benefits to OLED over traditional LCD or LED backlit LCD TVs OLED displays are and the missive technology meaning that the pixels generate the light so when they're off you get absolute blacks so you get that deep contrast which is especially important for HDR content speaking of HDR that supports all the major formats like Dolby vision advanced HDR by Technicolor HDR 10 and HL G the other

Benefit is the off-axis angle so no matter where you stand around this TV you're gonna see the exact same color representation 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 so this allows you to use the Google assistant right on your TV so you can control your smart home or just search for content or check the weather in terms of the ports we get four HDMI two ports with one of them facing along the back while the Ark port

Is along the side so we do have an Audio Return Channel we also get a LAN port a Toslink optical digital audio output along with an AV input now let's get three USB ports two facing in the rear one facing the side although I think most high-end TV users are gonna set up their own audio system this does have a pretty impressive 4.1 channel dolby atmos speaker system most ombré 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 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 this is also a great universal

Remote so anytime you add a device it automatically programs the remote for the codes so as soon as you switch to that input your remote acts as the remote controller for that device now because this is a Smart TV there's really no need to add a set-top box but if you're a fan of the Apple TV the good news here is that this is a perfect companion for it sports 4k along with Dolby vision and Dolby Atmos as always it's pretty difficult to illustrate just how amazing OLED looks especially when it's in your home so the best thing I can do here is

Show you the black levels on some video footage so you'll see that you get absolute blacks they're basically the same color as the bezel the very thin bezel around the TV so you don't see any light leaking or halos around the brighter areas of the shot so you get that depth that you simply can't get on an LCD TV one of the biggest changes I've seen with OLED TV since they first launched is that they've gotten quite a bit brighter now they're not quite as bright as an LCD or LED backlit TV but ultimately I think those black levels are by far the most important factor

Here to create this vivid image a few of the benefits of OLED is the uniformity across the entire panel so there's no splotchiness and also all that runs quite a bit cooler than LCD ultimately this is one of those pieces of technology that amazes me every time I get to use it the picture quality is among the best on the TV market and the interface is user-friendly and reliable with tons of features and customization I think it's worth the investment especially now that the technology has matured and the prices are more reasonable especially now that they're

On discount so you want to check those out before the deals expire and the new models come in for 2019 so if you guys when I check these out I'll leave them linked 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
