If you're aware (or a proud owner) of an LG OLED
then this might as well be us preaching to the choir. But, even choirs need a good sermon every now and then -- which is what our in-depth review of the latest LG CX 65-inch 4K OLED TV
is. Praise be to the benefits of OLED, Dolby Vision, G-Sync, and 4K.
After seeing it action with Control at CES 2020
we couldn't wait to test it out.
You may know a little bit about OLED technology and how it differs from regular or Q-powered LED displays. You might know that the O weirdly stands for Organic, and that its sci-fi sounding ‘emissive electroluminescent layer’ emits light based on the response of an individual pixel. There are millions of pixels in a 4K display so the whole ‘self-lit’ effect is immediate and stunning. Or, you simply recall someone saying that the black-levels on an OLED TV are the best in the business. No matter your understanding, for those that have looked into picking up a 4K TV in recent years -- you’ll be aware that the LG OLED range has built up a reputation on picture quality alone.

But, with the release of the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and new PC graphics hardware from both NVIDIA and AMD on the horizon -- an entire generation of interactive entertainment is about to kick off in a matter of months. Great picture quality is merely the jumping off point. Choosing the right display in 2020 is a decision that carries a little more weight than simply pairing it with modern streaming services and current gaming consoles.
As the latest LG OLED, dubbed the X-series -- as in tenth generation -- the CX presents a high-end display that takes OLED technology forward in meaningful ways, with new underlying chipset technology and support for next-gen features like variable refresh rates (the CX is G-Sync Compatible) and Dolby Vision for pristine industry calibrated colour and HDR. All design decisions that feel tailor-made for 2020, 2021, and beyond.
