    Awesome OLED

    As far as the picture goes, stunning. There is simply no comparison to anything less than an OLED. I couldn't be any happier with the display. The trouble with this TV is the software, which is the poorest designed user interface I have ever worked. For example, I am not connected to a TV service provider, so I stream everything. I don't even bother with an external antenna. When I turn the TV, irritating white noise, sometimes. No idea why it chooses to boot to a dead channel. There's no easy way to get it to go away, other than starting up an app. The trick is to get it to default to an app, which once again isn't easy to do. I also get caught in a permanent picture mode, where "something" wants to play in the background when you use the home button. I could go on. It's a very clunky user interface. If a TV detects white noise, at the very least it should mute the station, although an option to boot into an app interface with nothing but choices to click on would be ideal. Similar to Roku, Fire TV, or even a netflix type app. You should be able to disable inputs, like the antenna or cable inputs. Horrendous. LG ought to hire some forward thinking software developers and just start over from square one. Nothing about the user interface is user friendly. I was stuck in a mode when I first turned it on where the TV was saying everything it was doing, which was extremely annoying. "volume 22". "volume 23". etc etc. I had to google a solution to get it turned off, because I couldn't find the setting in the settings. And voice command, in which you talk into the remote, is nearly useless. For example, you can turn the TV off by saying specifically, power off TV. You have to push a button to do this, which is no different from simply pushing the power button. BUT, after saying the command into the remote, another window pops up and asks if you want to turn off the TV. You then have to navigate to the button and click again. Where's the convenience of saying a command if you have to confirm a command? Use the power button. Keep in mind, I'm in IT. It's what I do. No piece of software ever really stumps me. I figure it out. Way too much figuring things out on this TV. The average user will no doubt hate this interface. The user interface is a disgrace, plain and simple. That being said, the magic remote has a great feature with a mouse pointer. It works by moving the remote around. Works pretty good. There's potential to write a really great interface with the base tool. I didn't buy it for the software though, I bought it for the picture quality. Still, very disappointed in the UI. It's awful. I would still recommend this TV for the price, as long as you're hanging a Roku or Fire TV off the unit. If any competitor comes in range of the price of the LG though, LG is going to have a tough time competing on the interface. For now, LG is the only game in town for the price on their OLED. The OLED is totally worth it.

    I'm having a bit of buyers remorse, to be honest. Its a nice TV. The picture is great. But it will never look as good as it does in the store. Time will tell if it was worth the money. I wanted as "close to the best" TV i could get in this size. Did I get it?? No idea. I upgraded from 4k (non-HDR) to this guy. I dont have cable, I stream Netflix and have an xbox one x. The One X games look incredible. HDR is a game changer. I can't quite decide if 4k Netflix streaming matches the quality of 4k Blu, but it looks good. I'm also unclear if Netflix takes advantage of HDR or not. It says Dolby Atmos w/ certain programs, so I suppose thats a yes. The Last Jedi on 4k blu didn't quite blow me away like I expected, but I will say again that the Xbox looks great w/ the right games. The video source is obviously a big piece of the display quality. As stated above, HDR is fantastic for gaming -- but its confusing to set-up. The TV doesnt explain picture settings well. There's no manual and no way of telling you what Picture settings are good for what outside of the broad characterizations of "cinema", "cinema (dark), "gaming" labels. I consider myself technically proficient, but calibration isn't easy or straightforward. To enable the HDR for xbox one x, for instance, you have to dig pretty deep into the menus. Its not even labelled as "HDR: On/Off", its called something else. The first time I turned on the Xbox one X, it said my TV didnt support HDR at all. Minor panic attack. When you launch an HDR game, the tv recogonizes it and puts you in a different picture mode altogether. My TV goes from the "gaming" setting, which is admittedly darker, to bright and clear HDR based on the content. I guess thats nice. Smart TV functions are pretty easy to use. I havent dug super deep though. The remote has what is essentially a pointer, which is very cool, but I can't figure out how to turn it off (again -- no manual). I haven't tried voice features yet, nor am I super interested in them. My cat is mesmerized by the remote's pointer. I'm happy with it, I'm not going to return it, its just --- in the age of 55+ inch 4k TVs under 600 dollars, I just dont know if it was worth spending 2-3x as much on this thing. General buyers guilt I guess. Ask me again in a year.

    Hmm, Where to start?! This TV is the best I have seen Bar None! Here's my take. First off, Push the TV. What I mean is don't expect superior quality from Xfinity or DirecTv. Yes it does improve the stream but the source is not great to begin with. BluRay and UHD are how you are going to see what its all about! I have the Hobbit trilogy in 1080p, and the TV upscales it to 4k HDR flawlessly! The picture is not washed out by Backlight Bleed like my LG LCD Nano cell. I had Lasik and so my eyes already tend to have a slight Halo around bright objects and the LED bleed made it even worse. With that being said, The Blacks are Black and dark scenes can sometimes be difficult to see details. Somebody call a Waaabulance right? Next the colors are vibrant and full! The detail you get from the definition makes it feel like the characters are in the room with you. Every rock, blade of grass or and even finger prints of the actors hands can be seen! The sound is ok Natively but, with a soundbar its outstanding! You can tell the difference between Dolby and Non Dolby streams immediately. Lastly 4K gaming on my Xbox One X is ridiculous. The reaction time is faster than my LED and I can usually get the jump on people in TitanFall and COD. But DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT allow gaming images to linger on the screen as burn-in is a issue with OLEDs. Go get this TV. Don't settle for LED, QLED, XLED or anything else. And a word to the wise, there is no difference between the picture quality of the B series vs. C series. Only a better native sound system but if you have a soundbar this is moot.

    I bought this tv new. I would personally suggest avoiding the display models if you are overly concerned with “burn in” as saving a few bucks to get a permanent blemish on screen isn’t worth it to me. I originally tried the Sony 900e because of all the hype surrounding it but soon learned it was just that, “hype” don’t get me wrong it was a decent tv but looks way better in store than at home even with professional calibration. Picture was ok but not as crisp as my B7, and motion, no matter how the settings were changed, was hard for me to stomach. I exchanged it for the B7 and couldn’t be happier! Gaming: it’s hooked up to an Xbox one X and the 4k is flawless, it’s the best picture I’ve seen and the X looks significantly better on the B7 over the Sony 900e, input lag is also lower and it seems to get just as bright which was a concern I had for oled. I was super worried about image retention (image burn) I play a lot of games where hud stays in the same spot for hours so I bought the warranty, as Best Buy seems to have one of the best warranties on market for almost anything. Summary: That said I’ve had the tv for 3 weeks now and I’ve put it through the ringer trying to test for image retention and I’m shocked to have had 0 issues (thus far). Now I know it’s only been a couple of weeks so I’ll still suggest a warranty but it seems the burn in isn’t as easlily done as most people have claimed. For reference I’ve kept the tv on for a minimum of about 6 hours a day on fallout 4 hud screen and call of duty and an addition 4 hours of Netflix and have had no issues. Every night before I turn it off I do run the oled pixel refresher so that may be helping. All in all this tv is everything I hoped it would be. I’d still suggest the warranty “just in case” of screen burn as it’s not that much more to pay for peace of mind and if you’re willing to pay this for a tv anyway the warranty pricing shouldn’t be a concern. If your looking for the best, you’ve found it with oled!

    Absolutely the Best

    I don't know where to start. Everything about this TV is absolutely stunning: picture, aesthetic, sound. I am extremely picky when it comes to picture quality. If something isn't quite right it will send me spiraling. Especially with something that costs so much money! Fortunately, the TV was nearly perfect right out of the box (the only change I had to make was to disable the clear motion setting because of weird occurrences around fast moving objects). The picture and contrast is stunning. The TVs navigation is super easy and intuitive (especially with the included magic remote). The only downside is the wireless connection speed. It takes a very long time to load content if streamed directly from the TV. I believe this could be fixed with a firmware update in the near future. I use a Chromecast Ultra, however, so it's not a problem for me. One major piece of advice: do a Pixel Refresh under the OLED Panel Settings when you first get it. If there are any screen uniformity issues (which is very common with televisions) it will clear them up during this process. When I first turned on the TV there were these horizontal bard running across the screen, however, I did a Pixel Refresh and everything was perfect. Surprisingly, the sound directly from the TV exceeded my expectations. Typically the speakers on these TVs are weak and they expect you to have them hooked up to some sort of entertainment system (which I do) but, for general TV watching, they're fantastic.

    I caved and bought this 4k TV. Firstly, I have an Apple TV, PS4 Pro, and basic a** cable. I do game a lot, as I am a bachelor. Setting up this TV is simple as most TV's plug in and go BUT you do want to get newer HDMI's if yours are over 5 years old as the old HDMI can't handle the new formatting. Yes I tried my old HDMI cables vs. new and there was an obvious difference in picture quality. You will also want to read the set up guide with this TV and google setting up this TV. But incase you're like me and just like figuring out on your own, inside the settings once the tv is plugged in, you need to turn on HDR for each input that supports 4k. I.e. my PS4 Pro and Apple TV, I had to tell the tv to play those inputs in 4k quality. IT is a pain to figure this out so do read the manual. I didn't think there would be a difference between my ~3 year old LG 1080 tv, but in a matter of seconds of watching my favorite movie through the apple tv, and I was blown away. I have shown some friends and family and they swear everything looks 3d now with how sharp the quality is. Gaming is also very impressive, not a lot of games out right now that are formatted in 4k but there have been some game updates that try to mimic4k and my games now look sharp, really sharp. This tv is 120hz refresh so it isn't the best, my old tv was 240 and I have seen some blur in fast motion gaming but that could just be framing in the game is slow and I just never noticed until now. Overall, I love it. Movies look incredible. My games look awesome. And with my basic cable, the HD channels even look better (the TV does a nice job of improving 1080 playback) - Highly recommend this TV, I know I'll be kicking my self when next year they'll have a true 240hz refresh rate 4k TV but a true 120hz is still pretty darn nice!

    The best TV I've ever owned

    I purchased the TV to replace a 55 inch Vizio I had purchased about a year and a half ago. Withing 6 months of owning the Vizio the screen went black after a force firmware update. They sent a refurbished replacement which developed a line going across the screen dead center less than 30 days after the warranty was up telling me my only remedy was to purchase a new TV from them for a discounted price. Needless to say I had no interest in another Vizio product. I did my research this time and decided I wanted an oled screen as they have a reputation of having the best picture quality. I was able to find an excellent price on this TV which besides the Oled had other features I was interested in like HDR and dolby vision and I have to say, all the hype is accurate. This TV's picture quality is nothing short of jaw droppingly amazing. Crystal clear picture while watching non HD movies but it really shines when you feed it HD or 4k content. The details I've noticed in movies I've seen a hundred times has me eager to re watch my entire library. I also have a PS4 Pro which I was beginning to feel wasn't worth the upgrade until I hooked it up to this bad boy. You have not gamed until you have gamed on this TV. I honestly felt as if I could reach out and touch the images on screen. This may not be the best TV on the market tho I just might argue with you about that. But this is honestly the best TV I personally have ever owned. If this TV breaks out of warranty I would go purchase the exact same TV again it's so good. If you are reading this review you are looking for a reason to buy this set and you now have it. BUY THIS TV!!!

    This TV has everything, the image is wonderful, the sound is impressive in comparison to other TVs of the same price, the “Magic” remote control (that is its name) does the navigation through the menu and the smart functions a children's game, with a pointer that facilitates its functions, all images are displayed with intense colors and stunning clarity, but you are speechless when the source of the image is in HD, with 3 USB ports and 4 HDMI ports you have the ability to connect multiple peripherals at a time, also aesthetically I have no complaints, the screen is extremely thin, and the base with the internal components is not so large or wide, because its silver finish is visually very nice. The set up is very simple and totally guided, as a whole I have nothing against saying this LG tv, you can get for less than 2000 what you could get from other brands above 3000, and if you get it on sale, could be even better. My family and I are very happy with the purchase, my husband is very demanding with the image and sound of a tv, but he is the happiest with this tv.

    This was a great TV while it worked. Then a month later it turned off by itself and wouldn't turn back on. LG called third party service and they replaced the bad motherboard with another bad one. When I got it back it worked for 1 hour then the same thing happened. Not wanting the same experience with the same service shop, I took it 50 miles away to NYC where another third party service shop took over 2 weeks to pick it up and over 2 weeks to return it with gouges in the back and scratches on the screen. LG then informed me that the warranty did not cover scratches. I didn't put the scratches there though. Now I have a disfigured $2000 TV. If I had a problem with a Samsung or Sony they would have replaced the damaged unit with a new one then fixed the damaged one and sold it as refurbished. I will never buy another LG product.

    I waited 10 yrs since my last TV purchase before getting this one and well worth the wait! I saw 3D come and go, back-lit color changing come and go, etc...but OLED is definitely the future! I'm usually a Samsung or Sony guy but very impressed with what LG has produced here. Stunning 4K picture clarity when watching something like the 4K channels from DirecTV or a 4K Blu-Ray player, but regular channels look amazing too. Love love love the magic remote, it's super easy to use with the on-screen mouse pointer and one-click Netflix/Prime buttons. I also recommend getting it calibrated from BB although I personally feel they should charge around 99-149 for that, not 249! It pretty much just calibrates 2 of the 10 Picture Mode settings under ISF Expert. I don't think viewing 4K content is even affected by the calibration b/c all picture modes are disabled except for HDR where you can toggle the saturation and deepness. Still makes everything else look really awesome when using Expert Bright/Dark. This TV pairs well with the Bose Soundtouch 300 and Acoustimass Bass, I don't even use the tv speakers anymore especially when connecting via HDMI-ARC. You should also make sure to use only 4K graded HDMI cables. Please don't waste your money connecting a cheaper soundbar to this amazing tv you'll regret it. Highly recommend this product!!!

    Best picture quality of any other brand

    This is my 2nd LG OLED, my soon to be ex kept the 65" I bought a couple of years ago. I bought my kids a 70" LG LED TV for Christmas and it had a fantastic picture as well, but not as good as the OLED. After moving out I was quickly not satisfied with the old Panasonic Plasma I took with me. I went to BB to look at 65 - 70" LED's and found this TV. I got a great price on it and am very pleased with it. The magic remote is very intuitive, just like the 65" and it has 8 HDMI ports and an ARC HDMI and every imaginable picture adjustment setting option that can overwhelm a person. After using some settings I found on line the picture is perfect. I have had people complain that the picture quality is to good, you can see every facial feature on a persons face. If you havent expereinced an LG OLED, know they are the best OLED's on the market. Not just the picture but the features they come with factor in as well. My ex and my sons streemed 2 TB's of movies and videos in one month, in large part due to streaming Netflix etc. Comcast actually contacted us and raised our internet bill because we execeeded are internet bandwidth limit. Not once did they have a connectivity issue or picture quality issue with the wireless connection. Obviously we clamped down on steaming video and such, but it worked seamlessly.

    I had thought I'd buy a Sony 4k and instead (likely due to friends having an LG TV - I bought the LG TV Installation was complicated - the Geek Squad has been back and thought they had fixed I moved the my other TV from the front room to the back office at an additional cost of $100.00 which I thought to be excessive as no new holes were drilled - only moved from its original spot to the mount already on the wall. Then as to the LG 4K, the picture is about 4-6 seconds behind the voice - so it's very frustrating for my wife who suffers from TBI and not much better for me - watching Wheel of Fortune - the letter comes up and the contestant says the letter about 2 seconds later - I've unplugged (as told my BBY staff upon my asking what to do - unplug and see if it comes together I have a smart remote - it's not much better - likely need a better review booklet to see what areas I can try Also the remote doesn't offer tuning or various bass values All in all - good people apparently doing their best - just not very good equipment to get the picture perfect - which of course is why I purchased this 4K unit Then I paid for the 5 year warranty - not sure how many other costs were associated - more for this - more for that - if I received a $500 discount - the extras were more than that - I'm sure Likely not coming back for more - I really hoped this to be a Best Buy!

    This TV is super sick. The OLED technology is the best tech on the market. When parts of an image is black, it actually turns off individual pixels for super deep contrast. The colors are amazing too. This TV looks amazing mounted above the fireplace. The screen portion is like a 1/4" thick. And the back is white for a clean look as well. We purchased a sound bar, but I was surprised how well the tv speakers sounded.... for well TV speakers. This LG TV has well over 100 internet channels on it, we didn't even care we didn't have cable yet. LG App Store is nice to download streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and Amazon Video. Great for cable cutter people. It also has WebOS 3.0? I believe, to browse the internet. Oh yeah, the magic remote is pretty handy too. It works like a wii remote (just move the remote around to move the curser on the screen.

    So far I love this thing and it is starkly different image and major upgrade compared to my previous Sony Bravia 1080p TV from 2013. The only complaints I have are the WebOS GUI could be a little more polished in terms of navigability and maybe more setting options. I'd like to see less cryptic error messages when there are issues. Lastly, the darks take some getting used to as it tends to lean on the darker image side without some picture adjustments (*TV environment/setting dependent as well). The above negative stuff withstanding, the display/video is superb (i.e. crystal clear images, beautiful colors, fluid motion, etc.), the audio is more than adequate for internal-TV speakers (surprisingly good, though I will be adding surround sound), and the TV's overall features and functionality (e.g. # of ports, type of ports, feature sets, etc.) are all at or exceeding my own expectations. Conclusively, I was happy to hand over >$1500 during the Black Friday weekend sale to purchase this unit, have not been disappointed so far, would recommend and purchase again myself, and I just hope it holds up to continued use for the 3-5 years I intend to keep it. Hope this helps in your purchase decision-making process.

    I couldn't be happier with the features and clarity of this set! LG gives you a lot of settings that you can tweak to your personal satisfaction. After researching OLED sets for more than a year, I couldn't be happier with this purchase. HOWEVER, there is one nagging problem that I encountered after having the set for a few days. I decided to watched a movie using HDMI sound, and when it was over, my set completely lost sound. After spending the better part of an hour trying to get the sound back - it finally returned. Yet, two days later, it lost sound again. I researched the problem on the LG web site, and I discovered that the problem was attributed to the old firmware that was in the set when I bought it. Worse, (under General/Software Version) it claimed there was "No updates found." I had to solve the problem by downloaded the firmware update from the LG web site; load it onto a thumb drive; then install it manually. If you buy this set, please make sure you have firmware Version 04.70.36, or you, too, might lose your sound!

    The picture quality is terrific and the TV was easy to set up. I also liked the LG remote that came with the TV, The remote is simple to use and controls all the other components hooked up to the TV. Too bad we'll not be able to use the TV for some time. Unfortunately the screen developed an issue within 6 weeks of purchase. A whitish vertical line permanently appeared on the screen. It appears that an entire column of pixels is blown. It's under warranty so LG will repair the TV. The LG repair guys tells me he'll need to replace the panel (the heart of the TV). Which means I need to take down the TV, truck it over to the repair shop, wait for who knows how many weeks to get the replacement parts shipped and installed, pick up the repaired TV, truck it back to my house and re-install it. So no new LG OLED TV anytime soon. The TV is less than 6 weeks old and it's getting torn apart and re-built. Not exactly a new TV anymore. Because it's a new purchase, requires extensive repair, and I'll lose the TV for several weeks or more I asked both LG and Best Buy to allow me to return and replace the TV . Both companies refused my request. Very disappointed, rather than doing what's right, both companies chose to hide behind policy with no further consideration.

    I decided to purchase this 55"TV rather than a 65" 4k non OLED tv based solely on the fantastic picture. The only reason I did not give it a full 5 star rating is due the trouble I had getting the video and audio from my fios box to sync. I would use the delay settings and get things "just right" and then they would gradually go out of sync after abou 10 minutes. After a week of pulling my hair out, I finally found the solution. I had to turn off the Dolby atmos processing and the problem went away. Now I do not have this tv attached to a component stereo system nor even a sound bar, so thee atmos is not really needed. This may not be a problem for those of you who intend to not use the tv's built in speakers, The sound is not very loud using the internal speakers, but adequate for my needs. I really love the picture though.

    As promised, once everything is set up properly the picture quality is absolutely fantastic. HDR produces amazingly bright highlights and deep colors. Most people say the HDR is a bigger deal than the resolution, but I think that with appropriate material (eg Planet Earth II) the extra resolution is also pretty stunning. However, I took off a star because if you just go with the out-of-the-box settings, you get pretty poor results. I think I had read that one should turn off power-saving modes to really see the HDR benefits, so I tried to do this immediately. However, I'm pretty sure that for some reason the TV didn't start using HDR the first few times I viewed HDR material on it (you will see an HDR icon in the corner when it goes into HDR mode), and I'm not even sure what I did to make it start using it. The TV also produced severe and distracting visual artifacts around anything moving at all quickly, which I eventually got rid of by turning off the TruMotion feature (there may be a less severe fix; I will have to look more into it). On a more minor note, I'd like if it had a bit more support for legacy connections, especially component video.

    I have been a fan of LG ever since the introduction of the flat panel, wall hanging TVs couple of decades ago. When it came time for replacing my current set, it was a no brainier to look at the LG panels once again. The price was right, given the cost of OLED's had not changed much since its introduction and I went for it. The TV is slim, easy to set up, and works great with my current cable provider. The setting adjustments are very extensive, and the features are a far from few. The remote is a nice and simple tool, without useless buttons, and very easy to get used to. The picture is absolutely stunning. I really do not have much of anything negative to say, and highly recommend this set for anyone looking for an upgrade. I am including pictures of a BluRay DVD of Gentleman prefer blonds, played on my PS4 and the pictures taken with the iPhone 7. I can not describe how stunning the picture in person looks.

    After months or research before Black Friday, I found a few TVs with high ratings on rtings.com for gaming in 4K HDR, but eventually settled on buying the LG OLED B7A when it went on sale for Black Friday. I am so happy that I went with OLED. The picture quality on this TV is truly astounding and the "true blacks" that it offers really changes everything. I've been using the TV now for about two months with my Xbox One X and couldn't be more content. Gaming in 4K HDR and watching video content in 4K HDR is really pretty amazing and I look forward to experiencing more and more 4K content as it becomes available in the next year and beyond. I have had no issues so far with image retention or burn-in and I think that these issues are often overblown. Yes, they can happen after a long period of time, but keep in mind that the tests for these on sites such as rtings.com are keeping their TVs on a static image for around 20 hours a day, 7 days a week. That is not normal usage for anyone I know. If you are looking for the best picture quality of 2017, look no further. And with the new 2018 models coming out soon, the price on this TV should only get better and better. I could not recommend it more.
