I usually do at least one OLED TV review every year.

See the rankings of what I considered the best TVs of 2015
Last year my top five TV picks for 2014 consisted of three 4K UHD models and two 1080p models. This year my top picks for 2015 contain only 4K models. It’s not that I chose to exclude 1080p displays, it just happens that my favorite TVs were all of the ultra HD variety. This comes as no surprise to me since the best performers in this year’s lineup all contain each manufacturers best technology built in; and lately this has been the trend of manufacturers as they make the transition from 1080p to 4K as their best performing models.

Fast forward to 2014 and LG’s second generation line-up of OLED HDTV’s featuring the 65EC9700 and the 55EC9300, which continue with the superb performance standard set by last year’s model. More on performance later.
Fast forward one year later and these are still the only two models available in the US. Well, actually there are three if you count the LG 55EA8800 which is essentially the same set as the 55EA9800 but without the curved screen. It also has what LG calls a Gallery Screen which is a frame that surrounds the set to give it the appearance of a painting. This frame also houses several speakers for better sound quality.
