MODERATOR
”With its incredible colours, intense blacks and razor-thin panel, this is just another in a long line of totally brilliant OLEDs from LG.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £1999

See the OLED difference for yourself

With advanced Pixel Level Dimming, OLED remains one of the best options for class-leading picture quality. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

Powerful new processor at its heart
With the a9 Gen 2 processor at its heart, this 55 inch LG TV is not only faster at processing but brings about a whole host of new features. Intelligent Artificial Intelligence (AI) benefits both picture and sound for the clearest images and audio yet. Combined with HDMI2.1 sockets, the powerful processor also supports exciting new picture technologies, such as High Frame Rate and Dynamic HDR.

HDMI 2.1 connectivity for wider support
Featuring HDMI 2.1 sockets gives this LG greatly enhanced connectivity. HDMI 2.1 supports Dynamic HDR. This lets the TV adjust the picture frame-by-frame for active control of the contrast. For gaming and VR headset use, Variable Refresh Rate and Quick Frame Transport aim to reduce lag and provide a smoother and more responsive feel. HDMI 2.1 also supports eARC – an upgraded Audio Return Channel that supports DTS:X and Dolby Atmos from TV to audio system.

AI Picture
Artificial Intelligence comes of age with LG’s Deep Learning AI Picture. This clever system compares the signal with a table of content and automatically adjusts the picture quality to the most accurate image possible. Using an ambient light sensor, the system adjusts screen brightness and other criteria (with HDR signals). The result is greater realism with a cleaner and sharper picture.

AI Sound
If you fancy a more cinematic sound from your TV, then LG’s AI Sound should be music to your ears. Using AI algorithms, AI Sound up-mixes two-channel audio to virtual 5.1 sound – giving a much more immersive sound stage. The powerful a9 Gen 2 processor also optimises the sound based on content type – giving clearer vocals with news and dramas. The powerful AI can also take account of your room’s acoustics and layout and adjusts to give the cleanest sound possible.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in this LG OLED 55” TV decodes Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. With its built-in 2.2 speaker set-up and a 40 watt amp, the OLED55C9PLA delivers a smooth, well-balanced sound.

Upgrade to wireless surround sound with WiSA*
WiSA stands for Wireless Speaker & Audio. The system wirelessly streams sound up to 24bit 96kHz, 8-channels and includes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. WiSA is flexible as you decide which speakers you want and where you want them – they don’t even have to be from LG. Simply look for WiSA supported speakers and decide how you’d like your audio to sound. *Separate dongle purchase required.

Now featuring Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple TV app
With support for Apple AirPlay 2, this LG 55 inch TV lets you effortlessly stream from your Apple device. Even better, support for Apple’s TV app (coming later this year) means you can enjoy Apple’s 4K HDR content – featuring top quality Dolby Atmos and Vision. Support for Apple’s HomeKit makes this LG highly compatible with the whole Apple system.

Smart voice control – ThinQ AI integrates with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa*
Voice control has got much smarter with this LG TV. Press the dedicated voice mic button and ThinQ AI decides if the TV’s software or Google Assistant handles the command. 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. As an alternative, direct voice control via Amazon Alexa is also set to be an option from mid/late 2019. *Alexa built-in upgrade due later in the year.

Right at last? Oleds have always been superior to led tech that Samsung calls Qled for marketing purposes.

Qleds still can’t get down to pure blacks and contrast therefore is no match against oleds.

Qleds are great for rooms which have a lot of bright natural light and the 4000 nit peak luminance of the 950r will help but that’s about it sadly.

I wanted that model, was very tempted but would have been murdered if I returned home with a 65inch. To be fair it would look ridiculous the way our living room is setup, the 55 is borderline bachelor pad, borderline returning to be an actual bachelor.

I have a b6 which I've had issues with from the start. Finally all sorted.
But even I am tempted to get this.
The only thing is there was the whole issue on the b6 about input lag when gaming. I'm trying to find out what the ms response times on these are.
Playing single player on any oled is fine. But FPS online games are hindered. I switch to my LG monitor and I do much better.

As far as qled and oled I think Samsung also make less duff TVs. LG have a higher fail rate. I thought that was because LG were outselling Samsung but not if bitcoin5 is correct.
Excellent find.

Found it slightly cheaper for £1,649.00 but only 5 year guarantee at -

The TV has fantastic input lag. Very low, ideal for gaming.
£2674 for the 65” at RS. Huge difference in price. Still tempted by the 55” even though I’d rather have a 65”.

??? A little mis-information, goes a long way, as I said this C9 is the BEST oLED on the market (followed closely by the Sony oLED) for what it is...

The "efforts" you have dug up and referred to, are nothing to do with oLED sets, Samsung has two methods of display for the next 2 to 4 years, while their "similar" to oLED platform panels are in R&D.

mMicroLED (at least 4 year old technology in the works) is one, the other is dVQD, a panel squishing layer of goodness, that works the same as oLED, but without all the hassle of not being able to use it all the time, in brighter, family, daytime scenarios, hence why the technology will match and likely surpass oLED, for black on black and contrast level uses, something that oLED is limited to, where as qLED is not!

To add some oLED meat on the bones, we already have an E9 and the a9G2 on board, blows all the other GUi / Ai features driven out of the water for speed and user-ability, it is at least TWICE the nits / cd/m2 brightness, in the real world of daytime family use, than of our old oLED and is, like this C9, the best they have made to date.. it has its flaws, the oLED technology in it, is old, the limit at which the oLED panels can be driven, is all about the oSoC's on board now, hence why nothing from an actual panel point of view has really changed, since everyone went oLED crazy in early 2017!

We also have an LG Nanocell set, which up until we got qLED, ruled the roosts, by a clear mile, it is all singing, all dancing, but up against the old, old oLED, even that was easier to watch!

Anyway, do not take what I am saying personally, there is NOTHING wrong with oLED and the technology driving it, its just a bit dull as ditch water in some scenarios, but the only way forward with it, is to enhance hardware, onboard chips and software, unlike qLED / mMircroLED and the new kid on the block dVQD (or whatever Samsung will name it for the consumer to remember it by!) which, as a technology, will have everything that oLED had and then some in 2021

As for the glass reflections, as you say, not even Adam & Eve could do anything about that one!

Almost non existant, like most rGBW panels from LG oLED, there is a slight pickup slow down as the response is so fast, which can cause a slight D2D (stutter) but never seen one to believe it happening on the screen

Laugh as much as you like, but the only oLED (considering you obviously have the old eTf8 max 400 cd/m2 panel) that had come close to being able to be watched "under normal" conditions, compared to the Q9's (as in F), is the newer panel and algo eSoc's in these LG C9's onwards... hence why they are SO good for the money!

There was no race, if you look up a bit, you will see that oLED was the tortoise and qLED was the hare and that is really, really old news, once the 2 new production runs for Samsung are up and running after the Olympics, there will be little that LG oLED can do, to stop their next gravy cash train

i bought a 75Q900R to replace my 65B8 but after watching them side by side, the Q900R CANNOT compete AT ALL with the B8.

Washed out blacks and blooming...absolutely crap. Even with the local dimming, its still an LCD panel with a fancy name.

The Q900R is going back to Samsung! I guess I'll have to get a 77" OLED if I'm to upgrade.

Let's call Samsung qled what it is - "LCD". The same tech you had in your digital watch in 1982. The big rebranding of LCD as LED when they moved away from fluorescent backlights only serves to cloud the consumer's brain when forward looking manufacturers started wanting to sell a genuinely new product called OLED, which wipes the floor with every preceding technology (except maybe, sniff, CRT).

Critical professional playback systems are calibrated for use in dark environments, where the zero output OLED display comes into its own and no LCD based tech can come close to it. In brighter rooms for watching daytime TV I understand totally that peak APL is useful too and is something that emissive displays have always struggled with, but why spend this much money to watch Dora the Explorer and Jeremy Kyle? Even in a bright room an OLED offers visibly better colour saturation in dark parts of the image, and LCD will not match this, ever.

For me, and for the majority of reviewers who take video playback seriously, OLED is the clear winner by a large margin. For family use in a conservatory? Buy an LCD.

Why does a Porsche cost more than a Ford? There are a range of prices for all products and this should give you a hint of their position in the market relative to each other in terms of the quality or features they offer.
What about the newly released Panasonic GZ950? Vincent from HDTV (who seems to know his onions) was totally raving about these recently, and you can get the 55 inch model at Richer Sounds for £1474 at the moment.
