Best Picture Award Goes to LG’s OLED TV & Samsung Plasma

Best Picture Award Goes to LG’s OLED TV & Samsung Plasma

LG’s new 55-inch OLED TV and a Samsung Plasma series tied as the televisions that deliver the best picture quality in the 2014 Value Electronics annual TV Shootout. Value Electronics, a high end retail store in Scarsdale, New York, puts together an annual meeting of display experts as well as local videopiles to rate the picture quality as well as other attributes on several leading brand sets. Some of the features reviewed include color accuracy, black level, contrast ratio, as well as motion resolution.

This year’s competition included eight television, which was made up of five 4K TVs, one Plasma and two OLEDs. The highest scoring sets were LG’s OLED TV, model 55EC9300, and the Samsung PN64F8500 Plasma series, which tied for the top score. Those reviewers taking part in the competition gave extremly high marks to the LG set’s black level and contrast ratio. The Samsung Plasma series set received high praises for its motion resolution and color accuracy.

The new LG OLED TV, will be available in the next week (retailing at approx. $3,499), is the newest OLED TV from LG which believes the ultra-thin TV (less than one quarter of an inche thick) will soon become a dominent force in the sales market. The OLED TV combines the best features of both Plasma and LCD Televisions, displaying extremly deep blacks and high contrast levels.

One hitch in this plan though is that due to difficulties in mass producing the thin panels, Sony and Panasonic have stopped production of commercial OLED TVs and Samsung has slowed production in this category, saying it will take at least 3 or 4 years before it hits the mainstream market for consumers to enjoy.

LG on the other hand,  says it will continue to manufacture and sell OLEDs and this latest model is more proof of the company’s commitment to this series of televisions. LG recently introduced a 55-inch OLED model in 2013, but sales have not been what the company was hoping to see from this product launch.


The top-rated 4K TV at the above mentioned event,  was Sony’s XBR-85X950B.
