I know this might be out of topic, but if I haven’t mentioned it before I’m a pretty techy girl myself. This past week I was fortunate enough to participate in the LG OLED TV presentation in Boston. Beside the wine, strawberries and cheese bites, I learned a lot of things I had no Idea before, and if you enjoy watching your favorites movies and show in the big flat screen above your fire place (well not really), you will learn something from this post.
First off let’s define OLED which stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode, this is basically just saying the material the light source was created from. This is very important as is one of the main things why this TV is so wow.
Can you see the difference between these two TVs? The first one is a competitors brand, is their newest 4k LD TV, and the one to the right is the LG OLED TV. Now focus on the color difference. This shocked me as I was just asking myself, how in the world could they invent something that looks so realistic? I’m not trying to sound cheesy here but it truly impresses me the technology behind it. We might be ok with our TV right now, but that’s because you didn’t know that something else so much better existed. That’s what I felt when I saw this. Notice how much blue there is in the first TV. The girl at the exposition explained that the blue that we see here is what causes those headaches or dry eyes after we look at the TV for a long time. They called this Eye Fatigue. I want to point out something else; look how there is no true black in the first TV, and this is something that looks really cool. Basically what’s happening here is that the LCD TV has LCD lights on one of the layers that make up the TV, so that instead of blacks showing up as true black, appear as a gray-blue color. The OLED TV was rated as the best picture quality TV in 2014.
Can you see where there is black it’s really black? It looks as if is all part of the TV bezels. This really makes the experience a lot more real like I said, but not only that it really just looks so much better. I just felt like going home and watching TV all night after the event.
I forgot to mention that this is a curved TV; it comes in 55” 65” and 77”. These TVs are supper thin; they are 4.5 ml at thinnest point. That is really crazy too; the fact that those picture perfect images are coming out of such a thin device is mind blowing. They have a wall mount for the 55” at the moment, but they say that the mounts for the rest of the TVs should be available by the beginning of next year.
We also know that nowadays all TVs are smart TVs, but this one was pretty cool to see in function. There is a pop-up menu that is visible from wherever you are sitting in front of the TV. It won’t interrupt what you’re watching; it would just pop-up on the bottom of the screen. You can add applications and arrange them as you like in the menu, as you can see in the picture above. But if you are more of a talking person you can just talk to the remote for whatever you heart desires to watch, and it will pop-up on the right side of the screen. Trust me this thing is good, I don’t know what the technology is behind the voice control but it really works. This is very important to me as I have a mix of accents sometimes and not all voice control technologies can pick up what I’m saying but this one did.
I can go on and on about this TV since it really changed my expectations on what I’m looking for in a TV now. The actual price of the device is $3,399.00 but you can find more info HERE http://amzn.to/1sPOJAo . I hope you enjoyed this post.
