    Amazing TV

    Purchased to upgrade an old sony xbr 46 inch 1080p to this 55" OLED beauty. The size upgrade for our master bedroom was not so significant but the visual clarity and functionality is a tenfold improvement. The design itself is clean: near bezel-less edges provide a floating TV effect. Ours is mounted is amazing on the wall. It has smart TV functionality and the netflix built-in app is a great little feature among other apps that it does support. Picture clarity is highlight of OLED technology and the reason I purchased this particular one. The colors are vibrant with blacks deep blacks and 4K resolution is much more apparent with its refresh rate (specs say 120hz). LG has a good mix of motion enhancing tech and is up to par with the likes of Sony TVs. This customization allows you to calibrate and set the TV to the quality that you like (personally I like the soap opera effect). Of all the TVs in this line, this was the most cost effective because the other variants of this model only differ in design and built-in sound quality. My purchase came with a sound bar deal so it was well worth the bargain for such a high-end TV!

    Beautiful picture...awful/cheap manufacturing

    After finally receiving the approval to purchase an OLED TV, I read many critics and consumer reviews and decided on the 55" LG. I had everything ready to go and when to plug in the optical out cable to my receiver and the spring popped out of the socket on the TV, so I took it back and got another one. Everything was working great for about a month and then I was having trouble with audio and picture drop out, but only when viewing cable television. I thought maybe it was the cable box, so I tried a different box, but had the same problem. Different HDMI cable, same result. Tried my Xbox One and had the same issue. Turns out the HDMI input on the TV is bad and I'm furious. Two of the same exact TV in less than two months, with two different problems, but sharing cheap manufacturing in common. I'll be taking it back and getting a Sony OLED instead.

    I spend a majority of my time gaming. I recently purchased a Xbox One X and really wanting a TV to display what I paid for in the console. I had a 60" 4k (aprx. mid grade quality) and was debating between this LG OLED B7A 55" and the Sony x900e 65". I wasn't confident I'd be happy dropping 5 inches for the superior quality. Few people wish they had a smaller TV. WORTH IT. This marries beautifully with the Xbox One X. It shows what the console really has to offer. Absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone looking to maximize their gamimg experience. Pushing gaming aside. This TV has an incredibe interface for accessing all of the "smart tv" features. Smooth, snappy and intuitive. Lastly the aesthetics are unrivalled. It looks equally beautiful turned off sitting on your entertainment center as it does when veiwing content. Impossibly slim and the bezels are impressivly thin. Overall if you're debating getting the LG B7A. I highly recommend it.

    I LOVE this TV. For those who are worried about burn-in...I have used this TV as a monitor for my computer since November 2017...It's now May 2019. I leave the computer running a lot...anywhere from 12-18 hours a day, and as of today there are absolutely no signs of burn-in. The only thing I do to protect the TV is set the taskbar to auto-hide. If you are in the market for the best TV...OLED is the way to go. One last thing, because OLED's aren't as bright as LED's they are more susceptible to light pollution. By that I mean if you can control the lighting in the room, than OLED's the way to go...if it’s going to be in a very bright room and you can't darken the room...you'll probably be better off with LED. You will be blown away by the colors, contrast, and detail of this TV…as of now, it’s the best I’ve ever seen.

    OLED worth the difference in $$

    Needed to replace a Samsung LED REAR Projection DLP unit from 2007 which was state of the art at that time. Went in to buy a very nice Sony XBR-55X900E and made the "mistake" of asking what the big deal was about OLED and spending $500 more. Took one look at the picture quality difference and said "Ring it up". Floor rep said it was his fastest sale ever. It's super thin, with pure blacks and amazing color which cannot be described. If you are into great viewing experiences, just get an OLED. LG is the only company right now that makes them....all others get their panels from LG. The sound is just fine, but not a deal breaker because of home sound system. I only use Netflix, You Tube, music and maybe a few other (smart) features, so no more need for the Roku box. Streams well and make sure you update your HDMI cable(s). The remote is probably the weakest link but it works. We still have several remotes because cannot get all (cable) features to work on the LG remote. Bottom line is you buy a TV for the picture quality and OLED has no equal (yet).

    Fantastic TV that died - TWICE

    This is an incredible TV. The picture quality is ALMOST unbeatable with its perfect blacks. Just wish it could get brighter. HOWEVER... The first one I purchased died after only 2 days. It would not power up. The red light on the bottom was on, and when attempting to power on the TV, the light would flash a few times, the screen flashed with weird red lines for a split second followed by a clicking sound, then nothing. LG confirmed it was defective. So I returned it and got a replacement. All was good for a month, then the 2nd one did the EXACT SAME THING. I will say that the staff at my local Best Buy were awesome and very understanding when I brought the 2nd one back. Unfortunately, after this fiasco I had to give up OLED and instead got the Sony X930e which is awesome in its own right and has had no issues.

    OLED is the way to go. Impressed and Satisfied

    OLED is the way to go hands down. Forget LED or QLED. Those things now are like staring at an old computer monitor. With OLED and taking advantage of 4K and HDR, the picture quality becomes so good it is literally like staring into a window to another world. There's just no comparison. If you're interested in the TV, I highly suggest trying to see a 4K HDR demo in person. You will understand. The downside to the LG B7 is that it does require some setting up and calibration for optimal quality. If you aren't familiar with TV terms and technical features (I wasn't), it will take a bit of research and playing around to get the settings and quality how you want. Believe me though, it's very well worth it. My advice buyers looking for a quality TV? Don't waste your money on regular LED's anymore - not even a QLED because it's the same lesser technology. Either pull the trigger on a more expensive OLED, or just keep waiting because the prices are going down and you do NOT want anything less. See you in the OLED club.

    I purchased this tv, returned it without opening it because of negative reviews I read; purchased it again, and glad I did. I read negative reviews about image burn, and non function of the tv after a few days, weeks, and months in some cases. I went to best buy, saw the picture quality again and decided to purchase again. The picture quality is spectacular. However, all content is not the same. There was a movie I watched and I couldn't believe the quality I beheld. Then there were other movies that were great in terms of 4k quality but not as good. The picture quality is also good when watching 1080p content. I have PS4 connected and older PS4 titles like killzone shadow fall and the last of us remastered are unbelievable. I purchased xbox one x, but didn't connect it to the tv yet. I can't wait to see how games look in true 4k. I don't like the instructions that came with the tv. Also, I purchased the 5 year warranty

    Best OLED for the Price

    I originally purchased the C7 because my understanding was that the B-series were always Costco exclusives. Once I found out that the only differences between the C7 and B7 were the panel bezel color (C7 has a black bezel, B7 is silver), the stand, and some input differences, I made the swap. The B7 is the best OLED you can buy for the money. Once configured for Game Mode for use with my computer, my games look ridiculously colorful and the shadows (with HDR supported games) really pull you in. The magic remote makes navigating the menus way easier and intuitive. Watching Game of Thrones or 4K content from Netflix is a treat with this display.

    Firstly, reviews are going to talk about how a QLED is better. No. Not even close. Secondly, reviews are also going to talk about how it has burn in. Nope. If you are looking for top of the line, nothing better, OLED is for you. If you’re honestly THAT worried about burn in, buy a protection plan that should be purchased with any tv anyway. It’s $360 for 5 years. Most of the reviews that are going to be complaining about “burn in” will either be fake, or people that had their parents buy them the TV and didn’t know how to take care of it. I was hesitant to buy at first but, after having it for 3 months, I can say that the thing is awesome. I would totally recommend this TV to someone that can afford it. Just know how to take care of your things. Playing video games 8 hours a day for weeks straight isn’t taking care of them, and honestly, isn’t doing your body any favors either.

    Best Picture Available By Miles

    Best color and overall picture by miles for the price. However, with panning scenes that contain mostly white or light greys, some vertical banding can be seen that are similar to traditional LCDs where there are noticeable dark spots along the edges or corners. These are barely noticeable on the OLED in anything other than hockey. The internal speakers leave much to be desired, but paired with an atmos sound bar, it's great. The internal apps support 4k, HDR, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos, but are otherwise pretty standard. There were initially audio sync issues with early versions of the firmware and apps, but that appears to have been mostly resolved through updates.

    I’ve always been an LG fan and have purchased many of their products. This OLED TV looked magnificent when I first purchased it. Now 10 months in and there is a greenish circle that is appearing in the middle of the TV Screen. It’s really annoying to see. I’ve had to reach out to LG support to see what they are going to do about it. I didn’t pay this kind of money for these problems . Apparently it is an overheating issue they have had on this model. So buyers beware. If you get an older model like mine you’ll have the same problem.

    I was in the market for a new TV and have been keeping my eye on OLED TV's for a while now. After reading reviews on Best Buy and rtings.com I figured this TV was my next purchase. Pros: Excellent picture quality Very little reflection on screen Easy to navigate menus Excellent for video gaming Very nicely designed base Great viewing angles Cons: I don't really have many about the TV with the exception of when I paired this TV up with my 4k Apple TV on the HDMI port 1 about every 15-20 minutes the TV looses connection to the Apple TV and the screen flashes and goes to the built in wallpaper and says no signal. I then have to unplug the HDMI cable and replug it back in. I have tried multiple cables and even switched ports and it only happens on that 1 port. Overall TV is worth the investment and would recommend if you are in the market for the best picture possible.

    The shopping experience was a nightmare. Do not rely on the sale's reps to help you or make your decisions easier. After 2 months of research, I narrowed my choices to Sony 65" 900E or this LG OLED 55" B7. I'm so glad I chose quality over size. The Sony 900E was top notch, but the LG B7 blows the 900E out of the water. The upscaling is unreal! 1080p looks 4K. The picture quality is far better; and I'm speaking from out of the store comparison. My boy has the 900E and it is a great TV, but even he will attest the the LG B7 is just a better TV "Slightly". I've always owned Plasma, never a LCD or LED TV so maybe that's why I went with the OLED. SHOPPING EXPERIENCE SUCKED! ------> Not Best Buy's fault<----- Maybe a little. 2nd sentence.

    I’ve been eyeing this tv since the beginning of the year, but didn’t want to pay $2,000. Did all the research I could on other TVs and still this one came up as the superior tv. So when BB slashed the price I pulled the trigger. This is the best tv I’ve ever owned the black levels are true and not shadowy so it immerses you into what you’re watching/playing. The input lag 21ms is a great accomplishment if you’re worried about gaming. HDR is great just wish it got a little brighter. I was worried about image retention(burn in). Now that I’ve had time to game on this I can say that it does occur, but has a feature that wipes it and so far nothing permanent. Audio quality isn't great I recommend getting a sound bar. Overall, a excellent tv.

    Gorgeous Realistic Picture Quality

    RussG123

    I'm one very fussy photographer and videophile who has found picture nirvana in this 55 in LG model. I'm a former Samsung owner (bought in 2010). Hookup was simple and straight-forward. Great connectivity to Internet (hot buttons to Netflix and Amazon Prime) as well as access to Youtube is a snap using voice commands to their slim remote. The price was right ($1500) during Black Friday week. Best Buy is my go-to electronics store. Soon will be buying a 5.1 Surround-Sound system to with this TV. Love playing ll the 4KUHD HDR demos that are online to show to friends. My only negative is the stand is rigid. My previous 2010 Samsung has a base that will swivel. I see no reason that they couldn't have provided a swivel base. I'll be needing to mount it on the wall as a result other arbitrary design decision, thus adding $150+ to my cost.

    This TV has everything I want. Great picture for regular TV viewing, great viewing angles, and fantastic 4k HDR capability. I upgraded from a Sony XBR-800E, and the difference is night and day, worth the extra $1000, but still nowhere near the price tag of the Sony OLED. The WebOS is great too for streaming services. I also really like the remote. It's like a mouse, so it's fun and easy to use, especially when entering passwords into streaming services. Best remote I've had that controls both the TV and Cable. It looks like it does not support Dolby Atmos, but I've never heard it before and don't have that capability in my sound system so I don't know what I'm missing. Completely satisfied with my purchase and then some. Now if only there was more content available in 4k HDR format......

    I did my research before buying this tv, just like you’re doing, and the reviews were impressive but you can’t really appreciate just how good the picture quality is until you bring it home, set it up, and watch your shows on it. It may sound gimmicky since it’s mentioned over and over again but the blacks on this tv are amazing. The contrast that produces really makes things pop. Just a note, when you first turn the tv on you will have to play around with the picture settings. Out of the box, at least in my experience, the picture was too dark and the backlight was dimmed too much, but you can easily fix this by toying around with the power savings setting and the picture mode. If you’re looking for a new tv this should be a pretty simple choice, and the prices have dropped so much that it’s easier to justify.

    Very happy with my purchase. I played Horizon Zero Dawn & just beautiful. Fantastic for Gaming. Won numerous online team matches on platform, PS4 Pro. Literally from 4pm-7:50pm. Win streak on multiple matches. HDR looks epic. I really enjoy the Magic Remote & LG’s TV OS. It’s very user friendly. There is even a voice option if you need it. I connected my set top box to the magic remote with no problem. Watching Star Trek Discovery as I write this review. So awesome. Absolutely beautiful picture. Definitely recommend. I haven’t hung mine up yet. So right now it’s just on stand. It’s SUPER thin too.

    The picture quality is very dark out of the box in all picture modes. You must take off Energy Saver completely to see a phenomenal picture. The floating mouse used to control interface shows up and disappears whenever it wants to. After pushing all the buttons on the remote several times, the screen goes from black to finally on. The game mode has ridiculously bad motion blur when connected to a PS4. Games like Assassins Creed Origins make it noticeable when you turn your character left and right. Directly connected the tv to my Sony receiver via hdmi and I get no sound from my home theater. I’ve even enabled the hdmi arc in the settings for the tv. Not a happy customer right now! Don’t buy this!
