Lg oled tv and it's been a mainstay in my studio setup ever since lg sent out a while back now, there's no denying it's absolutely gorgeous, but there's. Also, no denying that at around two and a half thousand uk pounds not everyone's going to be able to afford it and also let's be honest. Not everyone is going to be able to have space to fit this in their setup. So, if you're in that camp – but you still want a brand new 4k tv, then this 48 inch lg c10 might be right up your street. I think this might be one of the best all round. Premium 4k tvs available for most people and you'll, see what i mean in a minute. Lg were kind enough to send this over for me to check out so let's talk through all of the features, the things i like, the things i'm – not quite so sure about so that, hopefully, if you are looking to possibly buy one, you have all the information. So a couple of quick facts to start off number one: this tv has the very latest lg ai processor, the 2020 a9 gen 3.. More on that later and as stated, it uses oled technology. This means there is no backlight. Instead, it has self lit pixels where every pixel is capable of being on or completely off, depending on the video or image that's being shown. So not only is the contrast, amazing, with perfect blacks, but the tv can also be wafer thin i'm.
Not gon na lie. It does look awesome. The colors look really vivid pictures are insanely sharp, but if you are gon na wall mount it because it's so thin and fairly flexible, it does feel a little bit flimsy. So if you are going to be adjusting positions, a lot then just be careful. You don't really need to be moving the tv around that much though, because the viewing angles are great now, one main feature of the new a9 third gen processor is the ai picture and sound pro feature. This basically enhances what you're, watching by recognizing the style of content and adjusting the picture and audio accordingly. So if you're watching football, for example, grass will appear greener players, movements will be made sharper, whilst crowds will become more blurred, etc. If you're watching news, for example, voices will become clearer and movie sound effects in dramatic moments will be more vibrant and dynamic. If you're going to be using this tv for gaming instead of a monitor, for example, then the fact that this is the world's first tv that is g sync compatible is quite a big talking point. The input lag is very minimal and you can now make use of a beautifully immersive 4k oled tv with high refresh rates and a big reduction in tearing and stuttering, which can ruin your gaming experience. So so far the lg cx seems like a pretty great all round package, but what are some of the possible negatives that you might want to consider here? Well, the first thing is the fact that the tv is oled now i know what you're thinking well hang on.
You said that means it's a great thing, and yes, that is true in certain situations, but oled technology does come with a few downsides as well. The first being the dreaded burning issue which can affect you if you have static images on your tv for days on end, the image over time can be left in a kind of ghostly like faint stain under these conditions. But if you use your tv, like most, people would for a few hours a day with constantly moving images, etc. Then you will never really have this problem. Another possible issue with oled technology is, if you're in a brighter environment, i.e next to a window, for example, or you've got a window directly behind. Where your sat, viewing and you've got a reflection off the screen, then the actual image quality can be not quite as bright as something like qled technology from samsung. Quite simply, oled and qled are great technologies, but they are better at different things. So if you're in a darker environment, watching cinematic movies, for example, then oled is going to be better for you, in my opinion, but if you're in brighter environments and indeed need a brighter display, the nature of the technology in qled is going to give you a Brighter picture, so this kind of swings around abouts and each will appeal to a different style of person. Yes, you can change, picture profiles and turn up the brightness etc within the lg cx series, but by the nature of the technology it will never get quite as bright and speaking of settings on this tv they're hard work, it's, not a big problem, and there is Lots of customization available but it's a bit all over the place and could be a lot easier to navigate, and this idea runs right through the whole of web os, which is, of course, lg's tv operating system.
It'S. Fine, it kind of does everything you need it to, but it's a little bit clunky with features a bit scattered and repeated in different areas all over the place. Such examples are how you can check hdmi inputs by clicking on the dashboard, but also just by running the air mouse over these icons and the fact that there are setting shortcuts, on the left hand side when you click the settings button on the remote. But if you were to then select all settings it's, basically the same again, it looks a little bit different, but all the same features are kind of there. I just don't think you need both and people might forget where things are. Obviously, if you're a dab hand at tech – and you know everything to do with settings, etc, then you'll be completely fine. This is for the people, who are a little bit technophobic at times, like my wife where's this again, oh shush, the lg app store is also not amazing. You are very much tied here to the experience lg kind of want you to have, as opposed to being more in control yourself say with android tv using the google play store. That being said, there are still loads of apps. You can download using the lg software and a few of the cons aside that we've mentioned. Overall, this tv is excellent and if you want a premium unit, that is more of a manageable size than the vast majority of monstrous tvs that are on the market.
For a more affordable price, not that this is cheap by any means at around 1400, but more affordable than some of the massive ones. Then this is a great option for you. Let me know in the comment section below what you think of the lg c10 series, whether that be the 48 inch or larger.
