     The picture quality is awesome as expected from OLED.. like the filters are off and great for daytime viewing..also the magic remote works really well.. I have not tested the speakers as i have it wired in via the headphone jack.. a now often overlooked connection but luckily included here.. just a heads up for anyone thinking about using it with a pc.. a 4k hdr 10bit colour connection requires a gpu with hdmi 2.1 which are currently only on the nvidia 30 series or amd radeon 6000 series from this year (will get a black screen if you try to set hdr 4k on Windows 10 with hdmi 2.0) so until I can get my hands on one I’m stuck using streaming services.. which is fine for now as the quality is excellent.. also I couldn’t see it anywhere clearly online but this model requires vesa 300×300 for wall mounting on a 3rd party mount

    Never had such a clear picture – even better than the LG Nanocell – stunning

    Bought mine elsewhere & paid to have it wall-mounted on the included articulating bracket that folds inwards. This bracket has a large magnet so the TV will effectively snap shut but doesn’t take a lot of effort to pull away from the wall with just enough room to gain access to the satellite, Freeview aerial, audio line out, ethernet, 4x 4K HDMI (one with eARC) & 4 USB ports. The set also includes Bluetooth connectivity as well as Wi-Fi (that I use). When snapped shut against the wall, the distance is ~20mm to the screen surface. The thickness is uniform apart from wide cable channels with serrated clips to keep the cables in the channels. There are no feet supplied but are available as is a tripod-like stand. This TV is really designed for flush wall mounting. I have seen 3rd party wall brackets available that probably allow tilting.My previous Panasonic plasma TV’s picture was still better than all but the best current LCD TVs so had high expectations from this OLED TV. Unlike the Panasonic, this TV is completely silent – no screen buzz or fan noise, not even a hum! The bezel width is about as narrow as you can get. The TV comes with a peel-off protective film that you should definitely leave on until completely satisfied with mounting.The so-called Magic Remote is wireless & can be paired with phones that support NFC such as my iPhone11. The LG ThinQ app isn’t up to much so I use a 3rd party one. I’m sure alternatives for Android are available. The most distinctive feature of this remote is the mouse-like pointer that appears on the screen when called for. You will have re-position it from time to time when it gets out of sync by aiming it a screen edge or corner. LG’s WebOS has been “upgraded” but not to everyone’s taste – it’s now full-screen without the ability to keep an eye on the program being watched. The degree of customisation is almost zero but that may change with future firmware updates. Unlike at the launch of 2020 models, LG has been licensed to include BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4, My5 as well as Prime Video, AppleTV, YouTube, NETFLIX, Disney+ RakuntenTV, Alexa, Google Assistant with some available directly from the remote. You also have access to LG’s own channels, voice control, sports tracking, unrestricted web browsing etc. With enabled devices attached to the HDMI ports, a degree of control is available from the Magic Remote that includes a mic.The so-called EVO panel has increased peak brightness by 20% so fairly subtle over non-EVO models but should also combat permanent screen burn even more effectively. We now come to any TV’s most important feature: picture quality. Put simply, it’s absolutely stunning. It’s very good on std def, better on HD, brilliant on 4K & gobsmacking on 4K HDR (including Dolby Vision) where the peak brightness is quite astonishing. Plasma TVs did both wide viewing angles & black levels very well but these EVO screens do black as black, not dark grey! You can get intense white on black without a hint of bloom, none! It’s worth noting that std TV broadcasts are not really designed for really deep blacks so many scenes do lack shadow detail but as soon as you step up to HD, 4K & ultimately 4K HDR, the added dynamic range give far more shadow detail.As for sound quality, my standards are very high indeed so consider even the very best TVs to give not even average sound quality. This model’s thinness does not help here so expect a thin & coloured sound. I use the optical out into an audiolab DAC then onwards to a proper stereo system with quality floor standing speakers on either side of the TV. As an absolute minimum, pair with a decent sound bar! The sound options include Bluetooth (I’ve paired some B&W P3 headphones) optical, internal (that can be disabled) & certain combinations of two. Voice recognition can be set to listen or you press a button on the remote to activate. it. A fair degree of integration with smart home devices is built-in.I do not do gaming so cannot comment on the extensive abilities of these LGs but further reading will confirm. The Settings menu is comprehensive & is divided into Picture, Sound, General & Support (more settings & diagnostics) where the Gaming menu can be hidden. The 8 picture pre-sets range from the OTT Vivid to 2 “isf Expert” modes where you can adjust every conceivable picture parameter or even call in a professional calibration service.If you see this TV in a showroom, keep in mind that the picture pre-set will be set to impress rather than be realistic & the screen film will mask the anti-reflective coating on the screen itself.To conclude, this has an amazing picture that gets better, the higher the resolution. I currently am still exploring all the non-gaming options such as the extensive motion & judder reduction that LG have improved over last year, I hear. Sony also have a top-range OLED range available in 2021 which also includes high peak brightness & best of class motion management but at considerably higher cost. Unless you really need the maximum brightness available from Samsung’s QLED TVs, these new EVO models do go brighter than the previous ones so continue to make OLED technology’s only real weakness less of an issue. Recommended. I would also reassure prospective buyers that screen burn-in is not the problem it used to be.Added 12/06/21:LG continue to update the firmware that appears to include stability updates rather than any significant operational tweaks.

    Probably the best picture on the market when I bought it. The screen’s picture quality is better than a lot of the source material which I can now see. The sound isn’t great but it’s still remarkable as there is no traditional ‘speaker’ and the UX could be simplified. However, all these devices are equally cumbersome in the interface department. I would recommend this over the Samsung equivalents for entertainment purposes. Better blacks and smoother images somehow. Nice work LG.
