Picture Quality

LG OLED65B9PLA has a very good picture quality thanks to the 4k resolution which is four times greater than full HD. The most important display feature is the 4K Cinema HDR which brings the content to life thanks to the beautiful colors it displays and it is very useful when watching nature documentaries or when playing games. Also we have good news for the movie lovers because this TV supports pixel level dimming. This dimming technology dims individual pixels where the colors are black thus providing deeper blacks which makes the movie watching experience splendid. Basically OLED TVs offer the best movie watching experience for now. However they tend to suffer a bit on the brightness side. The colors are also very good thanks to all the technologies mentioned above. We will give 5/5 points for the LG OLED65B9PLA review part of the picture quality.

Features

LG OLED65B9PLA is a smart TV so you can connect it to the internet and browse online content. You can find some useful apps in the app store and you can stream movies from the biggest streaming companies. LG takes pride on its new artificial intelligence called ThinQ. It is a bit helpful but depends how much you will use it because this TV comes with the magic remote which can make the browsing and the general use of the TV much easier then conventional remotes. It also has Google assistant and is compatible with Google home and Alexa devices. So as far as the AI goes this TV is well equipped. It also has all the essential connectivity including Bluetooth and you can also connect it with your smartphone. We will give 4.5/5 point for the LG OLED65B9PLA review part of the features.

Sound

LG OLED65B9PLA has two built-in speakers with 30W power each. The total output of 60W is usually enough, unless you are standing too far from the TV. If that is the case, you should consider buying external speakers that will turn your room into a home cinema. The ultra surround mode is good, especially if you buy external speakers. The sound is also clear but that depends on the content quality. We will give 5/5 points for the LG OLED65B9PLA review part of the sound.

Design

LG OLED65B9PLA has a very good design overall and the color looks good. The frame is quite thin which will make the TV look good if you wall mount it. Also some of the connection ports are on the side so shouldn’t be a problem if you wall mount it. The stand does not look bad either and has a nice color. We will give 5/5 points for the LG OLED65B9PLA review part of the design.

Price

The LG OLED65B9PLA price was £2999 as of June 2019 which is not that bad for a 4K TV. We will give 4.5/5 points for the LG OLED65B9PLA review part of the price.
