I have been looking forward to getting my hands (and test gear) on an OLED TV for a while now. Since the death of plasma, no other technology has delivered the tremendous native contrast possible with a self-illuminating display. That means each pixel creates its own light and more importantly, can be completely turned off for a true black.
The 65GX is part of LG’s premium wall-hung OLED TV line. The panel is just 0.8-inch-thick and includes only basic mounting hardware. My sample came with an optional tabletop stand that costs $97 extra. Resolution is 3840×2160 of course with over 90% coverage of the P3 color gamut, HDR10, Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision IQ, and Hybrid Log Gamma support. It also accepts signals from PCs and consoles up to 120Hz and offers adaptive sync, both FreeSync, and G-Sync. Combined with a low-lag mode, gamers will be lost for hours playing their favorite titles on this TV. If that weren’t enough, it has an exceptional built-in speaker system that does a fair simulation of surround sound.
OLEDs are all about contrast and from the first moment I turned on the 65GX, I knew it would be special. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be doing plenty of testing and watching. Stay tuned for my full review coming soon!
