If you’re still unsure about the benefits of a curved TV, you may want to look at LG’s 55EC9300 OLED TV—up close. This 55-incher has been garnering some really great reviews since its initial release.
That’s because this set features a full 1080p HD image and OLED self-lighting pixels. The latter is what sets this TV apart from your typical HDTV. This basically means that the TV has pixels that can turn on and off all by themselves, in order to create super dark blacks and brighter whites. It can also create a killer color palette, thanks to LG’s own 4-Color Pixel technology, which adds a white sub-pixel into the red/green/blue mix.
Having that curved screen is a nice perk with this type of imagery, too. Since the screen sort of wraps around, it allows the viewer to get wrapped up in a very lifelike image. It also boasts wide viewing angles, making every seat the best one in the house.
Measuring a mere 0.17 inches at its thinnest point, the 55EC9300 OLED TV also packs in plenty of other goodies. That lineup includes passive 3D, 2D-to-3D conversion, LG’s Magic Remote with Voice Mate speech recognition, four HDMI inputs, three USB ports, and more. It even has LG Smart TV features, with the customizable webOS platform. LG has also included a Launcher bar, so viewers can tweak the entire experience by dragging favorite apps to an easy-to-use main menu. This option makes navigating through all of that web-based content a lot easier and a lot more personalized.
Other features include Smart Share for streaming content from compatible portable devices to the big screen, LG Recommendations for finding new content, and the Dual Play feature for head-to-head gaming on one screen (which does require AG-F400DP glasses, which are sold separately).
LG is shipping the 55-inch 55EC9300 1080p OLED TV now, with an MSRP of $3,499.
