When we bought our new house earlier this year, we decided to be cord-cutters and eliminate the annoyingly expensive cable, since we pretty much never ever sat down to watch any of our favorite shows ‘live’, but DVR’d or streamed them instead. So when we went shopping at Best Buy for a new TV, we opted for an LG Smart TV.
Now LG has newer, even better technology with their new LG OLED TV that features picture quality that includes Infinite contrast ratio and stunning color that delivers a greater sense of realism and depth, enhanced color range and accuracy, super thin design and the intuitive webOS™Smart TV interface that lets you find content faster.
Now I’m jonesin’ for a newer new TV. Isn’t that always the way with technology, though? Ever changing at a very fast pace.
The way our new living room is set up, we could totally benefit from the LG OLED TV’s curved screen. The design makes sense, as it’s wrapping the picture around to the viewer, who is likely positioned in the center of their couch – looking directly into the middle of the screen.
The infinite contrast ratio is cool, and the first of its kind for televisions. This range makes the brightest whites and deepest blacks pop on the screen. Pair that with the 4 color pixel, which offers white with the conventional red, blue, and green for more accurate color representation, and the LG OLED brings a more natural viewing experience to your living room.
I love that the TV itself is super thin, there are way more options of placement in the room as you see fit, either mounting it to a wall or placing it just about anywhere for the best focal point. At it’s thinnest point, the TV is no bigger than a standard pencil. That’s thin! It’s also lightweight, which makes it so much better than the larger, bulkier – and heavier – TV’s to move around or mount on the wall.
I’m really impressed with the new WebOS platform, too – it’s a much quicker and easier way to find the content you want to watch. Our current SmartTV can be a bit sluggish in that regard. They’ve even redesigned the menus so you can conveniently see what you’ve recently viewed, if you have cable you can see what’s live on TV, and there are even suggestions based on your normal viewing activities. Sweet!
Mark your calendar! If you like to party, specifically party on Twitter, Best Buy is hosting an LG OLED Twitter Party on Thursday December 4th at 7PM CST. Feel free to join this party for a chance to receive Best Buy gift cards and other great prizes. Tweet #HintingSeason with your top gifts that you want this Holiday from Best Buy.
I’ll be there – maybe I can win some gift cards and sweet talk the hubby into upgrading our TV again. Won’t hurt to try, right?
Do you have (or have you been jonesin’ for) a cool new Smart TV?
