    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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).

    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

    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.
