For the best in image realism, OLED technology is still king. See the difference for yourself, with the LG OLED55B8S.

OLED – the gold standard for TV
Highly developed by LG, OLED TV technology remains at the forefront of image quality. Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) TV offers the most advanced picture quality currently available. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

Alpha 7 processor – for enhanced picture processing
This LG TV features their advanced Alpha 7 processor. This provides improved processing over and above a quad-core chip. With the more powerful processing comes improved picture quality. Advantages including enhanced image rendering, improved shadow details and smoother motion, all giving a more realistic image than ever.

The widest range of HDR support with Active HDR
LG continue their wide range of HDR support with this flexible TV. Advanced HDR by Technicolor offers reference levels of image and colour accuracy. As well as Advanced HDR, this 55" LG TV also offers decoding for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision. HDR10 is widely used on UHD gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Dolby vision-equipped TVs, like this LG, can decode both generic HDR content and content that's specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

High Frame Rate Support via OTT*
High Frame Rate (HFR) support at up to 4K/120fps means the potential for smoother images with incredible realism. With a variety of films filmed in HFR since the ground-breaking The Hobbit of 2012, this is the future of movie technology. The technology is also available on some TV shows and is especially impressive with sport. *OTT means that HFR is supported Over The Top using apps such as Netflix 4K. It is not available via HDMI inputs on this TV or simultaneously with HDR.

Part of the unique ThinQ AI system for effortless control
LG’s unique artificial intelligence system brings together a wide range of products under intuitive control. For your TV this means intelligent voice control and the ability to seamlessly work with third party services from Google and Amazon. The more LG ThinQ AI products you have around the home the more seamless and integrated the control becomes.

webOS Smart system now with Google Assistant
The award-winning LG webOS smart TV system is already one of the most highly-rated in the industry. Powerful but user-friendly, webOS makes Smart TV even smarter. Now featuring Google Assistant, webOS just got even better. Google Assistant is capable of changing the channel and input via voice command. It also integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your TV an even greater source of entertainment.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

Don’t settle for less. Go for the best, with the LG OLED55B8S.

Good price but I’m not sure I would go for a refurb oled so not voting either way.
£900 and only a 1 year guarantee? No way pedro.
I purchased a refurb Sony oled from RS. It looked new and was sealed as new.
if they were confident that these would be ok theyd allow you to get their 6 year guarantee

Refurb on oled sounds dodgy to me but still a great price. Guessing its just the 1 yr guarantee

Alot of money to spend on a refurb

They were selling these at £989 recently.
Yeah stupid for a one year warranty.... bonkers
However, the only thing likely to go wrong with these bad boys is burn in - and your 5-6 year JL / RS warranties don’t cover you for that
I fell victim. Purchased a refurb Samsung KS7000, just before the warranty expired developed light bleed. Fortunately they replaced the screen and it was fine for another 6-7 months and started to develop light bleed again was a common fault on that model. Have since bought a new Oled with 6 years warranty from Richer Sounds. Wouldn't buy a refurb for that reason.

Don't buy any OLED with only a 1 year warranty, especially a refurb and especially an LG. These aren't much more new now. If you have to buy a refurb confirm that the panel itself is new, otherwise you have no idea how it has been abused and which pixels have been stressed etc.

As low as £911 from Very, brand new.

I wouldn’t buy such an item from Very. As soon as the basic warranty is up they don’t want to know and make the consumer jump through hoops. Not good at adhering to consumer rights. Even Curry’s have been better.
Shame the OTT frame rates are not over hdmi as well on this tv. No inbuilt OS will be better than my nvidea shield so a big negative for me. I’ll pass

I've personally never had issues when a product has broken. Even been given money back on top of the replacement. But everyone has their own preferences, if we didn't the world would be a very boring place.

It supports 120fps with HDR at 1080p through its HDMI 2.0 but obviously requires HDMI2.1 for 4k and 120fps. For that you need to buy the B9 or above priced at £2k+

Edit: Just read the Shield only does 4k HDR @ 60fps anyway as it only has HDMI2.0. So not sure why you are passing....
Edited by: "MysticalUndies" 8th Jun
Mine was only £50 more in January for a new model with 5 year guarantee so not good really, and the B9 should have made this even less tbh
Refurb probably means the panel has been replaced. I’ve had a panel replaced on an OLED before, looks good as new
Will probably be close to this new once the b9 gets released in a few weeks
Got a refurb samung 65KS8000 ftom Richer Sounds last August. 3 large white dots appeared within 6 weeks.. they refunded me £100 as I felt I could live with it... then 3 months later a black edge appeared around the whole panel... ended up getting a full refund and bought a different tv.

Just my experience buying an expensive refurb from there

Think I'd rather go for a brand new TV if spending this amount of money, even if the spec was slightly lower
This has got very hot considering the amount of negative comments😋

''LG OLED55B8S 55 inch OLED'' <<< probably as far as most of these hot votes got when reading the title.
Remember no HDMI 2.1, so will suck with the new consoles out next year.

Strange you would compare a TVs built in OS with a dedicated media player, the LG OS UI is a lot more slick than the shield (I have both). While the shield can offer better audio via an AV receiver it can’t do Dolby vision. my b8 can do a lossy Atmos over arc and Dolby vision via Netflix and media player so I find myself using the LG os more than the shield.

Suck??? I very much doubt the Xbox or PS will be using 4K 120fps at launch....or ever!
Very good price for a 55 OLED. I just bought the 65 version, it's definitely a step up compared the old 55 LCD.

Paid 949 for this brand new from RS just after Xmas. 6 yr guarantee too. That was a price match from the Costco deal, beating them by £10.
Refurb OLED with 12 months warranty is asking for trouble.

Why, warranty doesn't cover screen burn. What other issues would you expect?

My brand new one of these developed an issue with the panel around 350 days after purchase and was a nightmare to get sorted.

I wouldn't be so certain, 4k HFR is a real possibility for next gen, considering Microsoft has already dabbled in 1080p HFR for the xbox. Let's wait to see what is announced this week at E3.

Also if you can't wait 4k HFR is available right now with a PC.

HFR is the next big step in gaming, I'm sure any PC gamer with a 120hz monitor will agree. Also I'm pretty sure Nvidia, Amazon, Virgin and Sky will release HFR ready boxes as it dramatically improves motion in sports.

If you are a gamer or sportsfan that wants something future proof then I'd hold fire until the B9 drops in price. If you're not then this TV will suit you fine, its a cracker.

Not exactly true, i had a 55E6 and panel went in couple weeks ,couldn't be repaired as no screens in stock at LG...total of 3 weeks without TV till i got refund ,RS couldn't replace as had no stock .

Then got a 55C6 from Currys and then less than 2 years later the C6 Screen has went.

Google faulty LG panels you'll be surprised how many OLED panels have problems.....more problems than burn in

I have a 144hz monitor and GTX 1080ti that compliments it playing at 144fps, HFR is nothing new it’s just being branded by tv manufactures because 8k is getting no content soon.

As far as Film media goes, zero media is filmed in 60fps at 4K (billy lynn the exception) so there is no need for extra bandwidth, 12bit Dolby vision may require 2.1 but not because of the frame rate.

Xbox and PS5 may well move past 60fps in 1080p but they can’t even achieve it now In AAA games. I hope I am wrong but I imagine my PC setup today will still be more powerful than the next gen consoles in 2020.

I’ve not read Sony ‘confirming games’ but just the hdmi will be capable but that doesn’t mean it will run AAA 4K 120fps......Minecraft maybe but not AAA
