This is an excellent television...best I have ever had. The blacks are phenomenal and the colors so vibrant they jump out at you. For those that say 3D is dead, this TV wants to talk to you. My prior tv was also 3d but because it had active glasses and the tv itself I stopped watching 3D. However, when I tried it on the LG OLED it made me a believer again. I recommend this over the G series as the 2k cost difference is not worth it since there is basically 0 difference in the displays of the units

The best TV ever made
Posted by: Dubb from: on
I recently reviewed the new Samsung ks9500 and gave the tv a 1 star because of the amount of light bleed issues and now I found what I was looking for all along OLED. The picture is amazing reminds me of plasma blacks with 4K and HDR. Yes I know the money is a bit on the expensive side but I can confidently tell you after owning a Samsun ks9500 and Sony x930d that it blows these tvs out of the water and if you want the best picture possible get this tv.its also very future proof with Dolby vision and HDR.

The LG OLED65E6P is simply an amazing TV. Amazingly thin, super contrast, bright colors and loads of features. I had personally been holding out on the 2015 models due to HDR and Dolby Vision not being supported, though I still wanted them due to their picture quality. Once I saw the videos out of the CES, I was sold on the new model. Everything they talked about in those videos is evident in the 2016 version.
Pencil thin is no joke. The main portion of the TV is 2 panes of glass thick. It looks amazing, but this is the one thing that scares me most about this TV. All I can imagine is someone grabbing the TV from the top corner to rotate it out and the screen shattering from being twisted. It feels as if the glass is tempered, but still has some play to it that makes it feel flimsy enough to break easily. I’m not going to test this theory and will stick to grabbing it from the speaker base.
I have been in the market for a new TV for a couple of years now and have been constantly checking out the new model TVs every chance I get. I have yet to see one as thin as this and with such an amazing picture. There is no comparison to how deep the blacks are on this TV. At times, when screens are transitioning, you may think that the TV completely turned off, because essentially it did as the pixels are off.
I don’t have a 4K Blu-ray player, however, I have found some 4K digital media and when played from a hard drive or thumb drive directly connected to the TV it plays them flawlessly. These files were in various formats as well, to include .ts, .mkv, .mp4, and .avi, in which they all played well. Several of the available apps also have 4K media for streaming, though some don’t compare to the quality of the downloaded media.
Passive 3D is the way to go and the way it works with this TV is perfect. No matter where I went in my house, which has an open concept, I was able to see 3D. I usually get a slight eye strain headache when watching 3D in theaters, however I have not felt it with this TV. The clarity is so perfect that the 3D seems to pop even more than I recall seeing in theaters. When watching 3D you can see it pretty well from just about any side angle, so long as the TV is at eye level. However, if you are looking up or down at the TV there is some crosstalk, so if you are mounting the TV high, 3D will not work well for you.
The 3D settings allow for side by side or top bottom sources, but it also has a 2D to 3D feature that is rather interesting. It is not perfect, as some things seem to pop out at layers they shouldn’t be, but it does add a 3D perspective to just about anything. Some “3D” games that aren’t actually 3D supported can now look 3D with this setting.
Dual Play is another feature that uses the 3D technology to allow for split screen games to play full screen. It is a really interesting concept, however, the image becomes stretched and slightly distorted to essentially take half a screen and fill it to full screen. I hope that they can take this concept further and possibly make it so that you could have 2 inputs on the same TV yet only viewed with a set of the single polarized glasses. Imagine playing a game on 65 inches while others in the room watch their favorite TV show.
I have a home theater sound system so I only used the built in audio briefly. However, I was surprised by the depth of the sound from the built in speakers. My receiver is not 4K capable, so I have my HDMI sources plugged directly to the TV and optical out to the receiver. So far, all the formats I have thrown at it seem to be passed through just fine. The sound bar is also the thickest part of the TV in which the very slim base snaps and screws into.
The sound bar is not detachable, nor does it fold back like the G6, but I feel it looks great with the TV. One point that may vary in opinion from person to person is what you think about how close the base sits to the surface in which it is sitting on. It is so low profile that nothing will fit under the edge of the TV. Where I had a thin USB drive hooked up, and the TV perfectly fitting my entertainment system, I can’t run it out under the TV as I did on a different model. Though, having no space there makes the TV look like part of the entertainment stand.
Another slight annoyance for me is that the HDMI inputs are on the back, facing the side, only a few inches in. This does make them easy to reach, however, for thick HDMI cables, this does not allow them room to bend behind the TV. So, they can be seen sticking out the side of the TV. If they had been a bit further back or on the top of the component area they would have been perfect for larger cables, providing for that hidden streamline look.
Web OS 3.0 and the magic remote are easy to use and provide for a whole lot of functionality. Everything I have ran through it so far has ran flawlessly. Changing between inputs or applications is quick and easy. I don’t know if it is a feature I have not located yet or if it is missing, but I wish there was an easier way to reset center for the pointer and to hide the pointer. Sometimes I find myself waving the remote off at an odd angle to get across the screen and then the big pink pointer lingers on the screen a bit too long at times, especially if bumped once I set it down. However, for the most part it is point and click on everything.
I hope with everything in this TV that it will last many years with upcoming technology. It is certainly supporting everything that you can throw at it for now.

OLED = OH WOW
Posted by: FantasyChamp79 from: on
What a difference this tv makes in picture quality. I went from a Sony full array local dimming (XBR-65X950-B) to the LG OLED-65E6 and could tell a difference, immediately. The FALD Sony was no joke, especially once calibrated, but this LG is as good as it gets. Maybe the G6 model is better, but I have read mixed reviews that there is any significant difference, at all.
The black in this display is amazing! While this tv does not reach the same brightness capabilities of many LCD/LED displays, it produces a better overall picture due to the depth and contrast that the black abilities provide. And it's not like the brightness is a fail. It meets all requirements for an HDR tv, and shows to be plenty bright for my eyes.
I hooked up the Samsung UHD blu ray player and it looks amazing. HDR is for real! That's why I upgraded from the 2014 flagship Sony. With the LG being both HDR-10 AND Dolby Vision capable, this unit is truly future proofed.
While the attached (and not removable) speaker bar is noticible, it sits flush with the tv and doesn't waste space like certain "elephant-ear" models that other 4K tvs took a shot at. I can't speak to the audio performance because I have my LG OLED hooked up to a surround-sound system. Maybe someday it will become a secondary tv and I'll actually hear what it can do.
Motion quality is great, as well. I tend to turn off the "TruMotion", since I typically don't like the "soap opera" effect. Turning it off has also shown to be the best for sports, for I see no judder or ghosting on quickly moving people or objects.
As for ANY display, the picture quality will depend on the source. My Fios connection usually does an ok job, however from time to time the picture has some strange views. I hope that once professionally calibrated (currently using settings I found online), I will notice an even better picture.
In conclusion; BEST IN CLASS! If the G6 were to go on sale before my exchange period runs out, I might make the move just to have the flagship or "Signature Series" of the LG OLED line. Otherwise, I've seen no proof of the need to pay the extra $2,000. This is the best quality-for-value available, today.

Best tv on the market
Posted by: thunder2003 from: South Dakota on
I recently upgraded from the LG 65EF9500 OLED to the LG 65E6P OLED. The 9500 is a great tv, but the E6P takes OLED to a whole new level. Everyone knows about the inky blacks and brilliant color of OLED, but many do not know about some of the past issues with near blacks on the 9500. 90% of the time, the 9500 performed flawlessly, but when it failed it occurred with near black scenes. That''s when you would see banding in the the near blacks, which was distracting. The other issue was vignetting. I am happy to say that LG completely fixed those issues with the 65E6P. OLED in my opinion has now been perfected and nothing can come close to rivaling OLED. Plus, you now have a tv that is capable of handling both HDR10, and Dolby Vision HDR metadata. This tv is a winner!

Stunningly Beautiful 3D
Posted by: davidbe from: on
This has often been called the best TV in the world today and it certainly seems so to me, and for me it was worth every penny of the purchase price. I even like to watch commercials on it (although I’m sure I will get over that soon enough!). My wife says she doesn’t like the TV – she loves it!
I had heard people report repeatedly that this TV has the best 3D ever produced (note that it requires a 4K TV to get passive 3D in full high definition). I figured 3D would be cool and fun to watch but still figured it would be something of a novelty. What I wasn’t prepared for is how stunningly beautiful 3D is on this set. With a good 3D movie it looks like a completely natural, crystal sharp, full HD picture, but it’s in 3D. We’ve all seen 3D in the theater, but this is just a different experience, a thing of beauty. With several 3D movies so far I have had to pick my jaw up off the floor afterwards.
The model 65E6 is not cheap, but it is the cheapest 2016 OLED that has both a flat screen and 3D. So it was a no-brainer that this was the model for me to replace my old 50-inch plasma set. And I’m extremely happy with my choice.
Having said all this, there are some caveats to this TV. LG’s quality control is not the best, and I recommend buying it at a place that has a good and easy return policy (like Best Buy) just in case. I researched this TV very thoroughly before buying it, and here are problems people are reporting in internet forums that require exchanging the set:
1. Faulty 3D filter resulting in 3D crosstalk (double image or ghosting) where there is no viewing angle that avoids it, particularly too narrow a vertical viewing angle where you get crosstalk either at the top or bottom of the screen no matter what angle you view at. It is normal to get some crosstalk on some movies, but persistent crosstalk in particular parts of the screen is not normal or acceptable.
2. An off-color (especially green) tint when viewed from a side angle (check facial skin tones for this).
3. Random white flashes (a single frame of full-screen white) that can occur as infrequently as every other day or you can’t get through a movie without getting one or two. If this is infrequent enough, it may not bother you even if you do have it.
Fortunately I did not have any of these problems, so I’m one happy camper.

Best TV I have ever owned or seen
Posted by: Buster from: on
The picture quality on this TV is unmatched in my opinion. For years I have been unsatisfied with the ability of LED backlit TVs to display actual blacks, but this OLED changes everything. The bar has been set and there is no going back from OLED for me. For HDR content the colours are out of this world. This model is also a step up from last years and doesnt seem to suffer from the low light issues giving nice flat colours in bright and dark scenes. I love it.

If you're looking at this TV, you should already have an idea of what you're looking at and for. This is hands down the BEST TV you can buy, 2nd only to its big brother the G6. Keep in mind however, the display on the G6, in terms of picture quality, is IDENTICAL to the E6. The biggest difference between the two models is the TV speaker.
Now I didn't give much thought about the TVs speaker to begin with because i already have surround sound system but when I turned on the TV for the first time and watched a movie before I connected the surround sound, I was VERY surprised and impressed. BY FAR the best sound I have ever heard from a TV speaker. My previous TV being a pioneer kuro elite.
While the sound is actually amazing, its not what you buy this TV for, You buy this TV for the picture. The best picture money can buy.

I wanted thus TV for a long time, and when the price dropped I finally "pulled the plug" and bought it. It is everything the reviews say it is, The colors and contrast are amazing, and the detail is incredible. I really wanted a 3D TV, and it's the best I've ever seen, even better than the theater. I am also enjoying the Summer Olympics more than ever, since everything is so finely detailed and the bright and vivid colors of the games just explode. I must say that I've never been a fan of basketball on TV, but I couldn't take my eyes off the US team competing against Brazil. The bright green of the contest has never been so beautiful on a screen of mine, and every detail of the venue and the players was crystal clear. It really is the Best buy ever.

the best ever
Posted by: seawill from: seattle wa on
This is the best tv by far. I still have a pioneer kuro , which is a great tv even at it age.. also have lg 55ec9300 and I love it.. But the E6 is on another level ..trust me. The design is a conversation piece even before you turn it on.. once it is on , the picture quality will blow you away and the sound bar sounds decent, very clear. Lg really step up their game with this masterpiece..Outstanding!
