OLEDs are coming down in price. The LG B6 is one of “lower” end OLEDs of 2016 and that makes it within the reach of more people at $2500 for the 55-inch model:
These are very expensive TVs but they show us what the future will hold at a more available prices. There have long been promises that OLED will come down significantly in price but we have not really seen that price drop to the extent we want.
This is LG’s flagship OLED and it’s getting good reviews and is said to have exceptional image quality. We appreciate the emphasis on dynamic range and no doubt it’s an exceptional TV, but $8000 for a 65 inch exceptional?
At $4,999 the LG 65EG9600 is not a cheap television. But it’s OLED and 4K and has other nice smart features.
LG labels this monitor as a gaming monitor. It has a 27 inch panel with 3840×2160 resolution, HDMI 2.0 ports, HDCP 2.2 and sRGB 99% with 10 bit colour.
Given that this is an IPS monitor we are happy with the price, but prices of 4K monitors will continue to come down in 2015 and beyond.
LG has a listing for this monitor on its website.
We are a bit concerned about the HDMI 2.0 ports given that HDMI 2.0a is on its way.
Quantum Dot to us really just means a potential step up from non-OLED technology but still not as good as OLED. Most content that is available today does not have a color-space that would allow the Quantum Dot technology to shine. Still, anything that improves the color gamut over the usual technologies is a step in the right direction. The figure that is getting quoted repeatedly is that Quantum Dot is 30% better (in color reproduction) than standard LCD TV’s (although this is probably the best case scenario with properly sourced content).
This TV can handle 4K 60p, H.265, and has LG’s webOS 2.0.
Andrew Reid of EOSHD recently completed a review on the 4K LG 31MU97-B monitor which has the following features:
- 31″ Class (31″ diagonal)
- 10bit IPS panel
- Adobe RGB 99.5% color gamut
- 17:9 aspect ratio
- 4096×2160 resolution
- 1M:1 (DFC) contrast ratio
- 178/178 degree viewing angle
- Advanced anti-glare
The LG 4K DCI monitor is great for editing especially for those who multitask between two apps open on the same display at any one time. You have vast amounts of resolution when using 1:1 mapping in 4K DCI to exploit and take a true birds-eye view of what you’re doing. Then when you go and surf the web for cat videos you can just drop the resolution (virtually) using the Apple retina display controls in the system menus.
