Expert Reviews

The LG CX OLED is an excellent TV for most uses. Like any OLED TV, it can produce perfect blacks and has a near-instant response time. It also has FreeSync support and G-SYNC compatibility to reduce screen tearing when gaming. Unfortunately, it has a risk of permanent burn-in, but this shouldn't be an issue with varied content. It's great for watching shows during the day as it has outstanding reflection handling and wide viewing angles.

OLED65CX is among the more affordable OLED screens from LG’s 2020 range. Here you get the contrast-rich image quality that characterizes OLED, combined with state-of-the-art image processing, connections and other features. We are extra pleased with the wide format support (including Dolby Vision in picture and Dolby Atmos sound) and good connectivity with HDMI 2.1, which makes this a multi-compatible and future-oriented TV. The OLED screen still lacks a bit of light intensity compared to the QLED light cannons from Samsung, we would have liked to have seen LG develop a duller contrast filter for its screens. In a slightly darker environment, however, the OLED65CX is completely unique when it comes to black level and depth feeling. If you are looking for a TV for late nights with movies, series and game entertainment, this is a perfect choice!

LG's CX and C9 OLED TVs may look exquisite, but they have a serious issue with displaying content with variable refresh rate (VRR) enabled. From washed-out dark areas to image flickering and instability, VRR is currently a no-go on some of LG's expensive OLED TV series. A firmware update may not be able to resolve the issues, either.
