The OLED Ultra HD TV has been crowned the "King of TV" for 2015.
For the second year in a row, an LG OLED display has won the Value Electronics TV Shootout. The 65EG9600 65-inch OLED Ultra HD TV beat out the competition to earn this year's top performing TV award.
"LG OLED TV sets a new standard for picture quality and delivers an incredible TV experience unlike any LCD LED TV available," said Tim Alessi, director of new product development for home entertainment at LG Electronics USA. "For years LG has been at the forefront of innovations that demand recognition from picture quality authorities and consumers alike, and industry recognition like this further validates our efforts, especially with OLED 4K TVs."
The 11th Annual Value Electronics TV Shootout compared four flagship displays from various manufacturers to determine a picture quality winner based on a variety of factors, including black level, perceived contrast, color accuracy, and motion resolution. All of the TVs were professionally calibrated and evaluated by CE Week attendees, including numerous industry experts and A/V enthusiasts. The 65EG9600 and its OLED panel managed to rise above the LED LCD competition to win the top spot.
"This is the second consecutive year that LG OLED has taken the crown, beating its LED counterparts in an intense side-by-side comparison," said TV Shootout organizer Robert Zohn, owner of Value Electronics, a leading specialty retailer based in Scarsdale, N.Y. "The experts and CE Week attendees have spoken: OLED TVs deliver superior picture quality compared to contemporary TV technologies."
The 65EG9600 is now available for a suggested retail proce of $8,999. In addition, the 55-inch 55EG9600 ($4,499) is also on sale. Both models will be getting firmware updates to support High Dynamic Range content soon.
