    LG's WebOS menu system feels nice and snappy, but it's basically unchanged from last year. The remote tracks the motion of your hand and wrist to whip quickly around the screen. All of LG's 2019 OLED models include the latest version of the HDMI standard: 2.1.
    Pros
    • Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support
    • Sleek, minimalist design
    Cons
    • No HDMI 2.1 support
    • No built-in external streamer

    This is an excellent TV for mixed use. It has outstanding dark room performance thanks to its perfect blacks. It delivers very crisp motion and the excellent gray uniformity and wide viewing angles. Gamers will appreciate the low input lag. Unfortunately, just like all OLED TVs it runs the risk of permanent burn-in.
    Pros
    • Image remains accurate for wide viewing angles
    • Excellent gray uniformity
    • Good SDR peak brightness
    • Very low input lag
    Cons
    • Automatic brightness limiter causes brightness to fluctuate with different content

    OLED65B9 leaves similarly priced TV rivals for dead with its thinness of its panel. Since OLED technology doesn't need any external backlighting, the OLED ‘film' can be mounted directly onto a rigid backsheet. This means the screen is just millimetres deep at its outer edges, seemingly defying the laws of physics. It's made exceptionally easy to use by its webOS smart platform. All of the ‘heroes' are covered, from Apple TV, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video and Netflix.
    Pros
    • Gorgeous OLED panel
    • Superb sound quality
    • Excellent app support
    Cons
    • No Dolby Atmos
