Editor's Notes

February 28, 2019:

Rather than using an always-on LED backlight, OLED TVs utilize individually lit pixels, and are capable of significantly richer blacks and dark colors than their more traditional, LCD counterparts. There's currently only one major manufacturer of OLED panels in the world, and that's LG, who along with Sony, is one of two current producers of OLED televisions in the USA. The later part of 2019 will see new models from both of these companies, as well as entries into the US market from Philips and Panasonic (again, still using LG's OLED panels). Currently, the C8 is often regarded as one of the best choices, because it offers near-perfect visual quality, and if you're looking at the 65-inch version, it's also a great value. The E8 is a tier above it, and a little bit nicer aesthetically, plus, its 55-inch variety is surprisingly affordable right now. Sony's A9F is a marvel in many ways, though it does come at a premium — but it's priced nowhere close to LG's famous "Wallpaper TV," which is known its ridiculous thinness, at well under a quarter-inch thick. If you're on a slightly slimmer budget overall, the B8 is about as "entry-level" as an OLED display gets, and it still looks fantastic.
