LG’s premium models for the US market are arriving at your local and online retailers. For 2018, LG will offer nine OLED models and seven Super UHD LED models. The OLED displays will consist of the W8, E8, C8 and B8 series, while the Super UHD models will offer the SK9500, SK9000 and SK8000 series.
As expected 2017 was a good year for the continued growth and popularity of 4K Ultra HD TVs. And with a new year upon us, it time for me to reflect on my favorite models from last year.
With HDR Capability
There is a new addition to the handful of 4K UHD Blu-ray players currently available… LG has recently launched their UP970 4K UHD Blu-ray player to spin the ever increasing number of 4K Blu-ray discs.

65” OLED65E7P 120Hz Smart TV
I usually do at least one OLED TV review every year. These past models have all been from LG which has been the primary manufacturer of this very impressive technology, and has been heavily pushing OLED TVs for the past several years. So it should be as no surprise this OLED TV review is an LG model.
Sony has recently jumped into the OLED market and is now offering the excellent performing OLED Bravia A1E Series as part of their 2017 lineup.
55” 55SJ8500 Super UHD 120Hz Smart LED TV
LG’s SJ8500 is part of their premium 4K LED TV lineup and offers very good picture quality whether it is displaying 4K, HDR or 1080p images, however this is also dependent on the viewing environments lighting conditions… more on this in the performance section below. Additionally, LG’s excellent and latest webOS 3.5 smart TV on-screen menu system provides smooth and easy interaction with the SJ8500’s smart TV features.

2016 came and went as quickly as any other year in recent past. And now that we’ve kicked off a brand new year, it’s time for me to look back and reflect on which TVs delivered the best performance (picture quality).
1080p TVs – Still a Good Choice for High Definition Viewing
Are you in the market for a new TV, but still not concerned or interested in the latest rave of 4K Ultra HD TVs that are taking over the television landscape? If so, you should know there are still plenty of 1080p HDTVs currently available, although in much smaller numbers and available models since manufacturers are now focusing most of their production efforts on 4K models. With that said, 1080p models still deliver excellent picture quality and usable features such as a decent smart TV interface/platform, all at a cheaper price.
LG’s 65″ OLED65E6P Delivers the Ultimate in Picture Quality
In my opinion, OLED TVs set the standard for best in picture quality among all current television technologies. And the key to this amazing image reproduction is found in their extraordinary contrast and black level capabilities.
