There is no denying the eye-grabbing picture quality of the latest LG OLED televisions, and the value B6 Series delivers LG's 'infinite contrast' imagery at more affordable prices. OLED technology combines the brightness of an LCD TV with the wide viewing angles and dark black levels of a good plasma TV. Thin and light, the flat-screen B6 Series looks great wall mounted, and it has all of the latest 4K streaming services built-in. If the glass back design of LG's G Series and E Series OLED TVs isn't critical for your enjoyment, save a $1000 and treat your eyes to the B6. The B6 Series is available in screen sizes of 55-inches and 65-inches.
The Samsung KS9500 Series UHD TVs represent the company's best edge-lit design for 2016. The KS9500 features a curved screen and its four HDMI ports are HDMI 2.0a/HDCP 2.2 enabled for compatibility with UHD devices like its excellent 4K UHD Blu-ray Player. Compared to the flagship KS9800 (65-inches/78-inches) that features more precise full array local dimming, the KS9500's edge-lighting resulted in elevated black levels in the bars of letterboxed movies and intra-scene contrast in general. The interface for Samsung's best 2016 TVs has been completely redesigned for improved performance (very fast app and input switching) and auto-detection of connected devices like cable/satellite set top boxes. Samsung's 2016 7-, 8-, and 9-series TVs can function as an IoT (Internet of Things) hub for controlling compatible devices using the TV's remote/screen. Samsung has ditched 3D support with its 2016 TVs, and the cursor control feature of previous generations is gone too.
LG makes some of the most desirable TVs in the world, and its 2016 G6 Series OLED TVs deserve the title of 'flagship display'. The G6's design places the ultra-thin OLED panel on a flat glass sheet that's protective and stylish. The harman/kardon-enhanced AV base can fold out of the way for a wall-mount installation. This 4K UHD TV has received "Ultra HD Premium" certification, and it fully supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision 4K video formats that feature expanded color and picture detail. The G6 Series TVs also feature 10-bit panels and processing, and the updated smart interface is driven by LG's new webOS 3.0. The G6 Series will be available in screen sizes of 65-inches and 77-inches.
