Great 1ST 4K TV speaks for itself
EXCEPTIONAL 4K OLED TV the sound and display quality of the LG CX to me are immense, family compare the AI sound pro to that of a sound bar (there opinion) and say its great!
I had done alot of research and went with the CX. 4x HDMI ports @4K120fps + Freesync Premium for the up coming new consoles a Magic Remote which is basically a wireless mouse for TV. The web OS software built into the CX is broad and includes all the popular apps, super fast and responsive OS compared to friends and familys 4K TV's. My first purchase for a 4K TV is this ...one and i have no regrets, ive seen many 4K TVS in action and this one just stood out above the rest to me. Do some research on how to take care of your OLED before purchasing, OLED tvs are susceptible to something called "banding" which can appear either vertically or horizontally and look like lines that can be scene during a movie by either looking into the sky and youll see a shadow like line or will appear during grey shadowing scenes, believe me you cannot miss it. Should you encounter this problem with the LG CX here's abit of info: "banding" is a manufacturing fault, a panel defect. Should you be in warranty going through a claim and the manufacturer states: "banding" is within "spec" of your LG CX. Tell them, which is your consumer right to request the LG CX TV specs in writing so that you can have an independent assessment done. They are not "spec" at all and by consumer law this would not be fit for its purpose thus making you eligible for a refund or replacement. I personally would not be happy experiencing this issue and for the price would not accept it either. This doesnt get 5 stars simply due to care required for a TV.
TV it's all about image, stunning!
1st time LG buyer, as a Sony lover but i have to say, l'm impressed! Perfect picture and blacks, can't be thinner, beautiful slimmer bezel,
Hdmi 2.1, perfect colors, great sound.
One small this is the OLED technology can't take the reflection from the glass, and being so slim, and regarding the sound, i can't have the bass as i like. Well soundbars will make it perfect!
Perfect for a Dark room.

Great picture quality. Poor panel quality.
Overall, the picture quality of an OLED is brilliant.
This TV is most suitable for darker viewing conditions.
The picture quality in various standard definition, high dynamic range and Dolby Vision is great.
This model (I believe most of LG 2020's) dropped support for DTS, so you won't be able to get sound from
DTS content, not even passthrough will work unless you connect your media player to your sound system and bypass the TV's audio processing.
However, I cannot state that the below is a fact for the entire CX TV's, but in my case, I got a low panel quality which will present its faults in real-world content, as oppose to stressing it with test patterns.
Fair warning if you're planning on using this TV for older movie content
Purchased the 65" size of this OLED TV as part of a recent upgrade to my home theatre setup. Picture quality and feature set for gaming is amongst the best i've seen of the TVs I have previously owned. However there is one major feature omission that prompted me to write this review and that is the removal of DTS audio support from the 2020 LG OLED models.
While newer 4K Blu-rays with Dolby Atmos has worked fine for me so far, past 1080p Blu-ray discs with DTS / DTS-HD Master Audio tracks aren't supported through enhanced Audio Return Channel ...(eARC) which is required for passing a lossless audio stream to the TV. I found this out the hard way when I tried to play back some 1080p Blu-rays and MP4 / MKV files with DTS-HD Master Audio and there was no audio playback when my Blu-ray / media player was connected directly to the TVs HDMI eARC input. What makes this omission even more baffling is even with a Audiovisual Receiver (AVR), I was still unable to passthrough the DTS / DTS-HD MA audio via eARC despite the previous LG C9 series supporting it. Hoping this is something that LG addresses in a future firmware update, but if DTS removal had anything to do with licensing costs, then passthrough support of lossless DTS audio may not ever happen. Just wish this is something I knew about earlier before spending thousands on this TV. While this issue significantly affects my home theatre experience as it has a lot of legacy 1080p content prior to 4K Ultra HD being a thing (hence knocking off two stars off the rating), the picture quality itself is good and I can still see myself getting a lot of use out of this TV for PS5 / XBX gaming. Just keep the audio limitation in mind when considering which is the best OLED TV to buy for your needs.
Best TV Ever
I had my CX65 for two day 3/4/20. OMG what a TV. The setup very easy. The picture quality is just amazing. We updated from a Samsung 4K UHD TV, and what a difference. Sorry there's just no comparison! We are watching movies like we have not watched before. And I can honestly say it is the best television that we have ever owned. Even before turning the unit on, it is a beautifully thin, low-profile unit that will complement any lounge or media room dcor. Saw things on movies we have never seen before, like Captain Marvel, the dark parts at the...start! Amazing! Also Band Of Brother when they are is Austria, at the lake scene! Again OMG It's not cheap, but when you have a quality picture like that, it doesn't matter with the price. No TV can achieve what LG has done and that is have a maximum white pixel next to a perfect “true” black pixel. Possibly/arguably the best TV on Earth to this date. I would not purchase anything but an LG OLED and so should you And a big thank you to Tim the Sales Executive at LG Adelaide, he answered all my questions, all the information I required, and even helped my setup questions. Tim's knowledge of this product is amazing.
Purchased in April 2020.
