There is no swivel in the stand either, though the curved nature of the 55EG960V, along with highly broad viewing angles, means that really is not an issue. The alpha male of TVs comes to us this time in a slightly smaller package than the previous OLED outing, but its 55-inches are both easier to house and much, much more low cost.

LG-55EG960V

Characteristics And Apps

Freeview HD digital and Freesat HD satellite tuners, WiFi and Harman Kardon speakers, LG’s brand new WebOS 2.0 smart TV user interface is also on board. Just in case you were wondering, the 55EG960V is 3D-ready, too, and comes with four pairs of the same passive 3D specs given out at your local multiplex. Aside from its OLED panel, which has a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, the 55EG960V also adds a reflection-proof filter, which should prove handy given some of the criticisms of curved TV’s. However, the stand is not so good. It uses a transparent plastic column that’s supposed to create a ‘floating look’ that catches too much light to create that particular illusion. In fact, WebOS 2.0 is all about mixing-up the TV’s core features with sources and apps, so you’ll find the icons along the bottom for the latest TV channel you watched next to the latest apps you used, and so on. Aside from its OLED (organic light-emitting diode) panel, which has a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, the 55EG960V also adds a reflection-proof filter, which should prove handy given some of the criticisms of curved TV’s.

Design

Joining that trio on an outwards facing side-panel are three USB slots, a headphones jack and a Common Interface slot, while below are feeds for the TV tuners, a Scart, a component/confection video adapter, an optical digital audio output and an Ethernet LAN slot. Just three HDMI inputs on the 55EG960V is a slight cause for concern, though elsewhere there’s no such deficits.

Assessment

We can hope that this OLED (organic light emitting diode) will be brilliant piece of LG for us to enjoy and see the HD ultra quality in 4K technology specialty.
