LG OLED TVs have always been good. Great, even. With the new LG CX series OLED TVs, though, LG has truly outdone itself, as a host of small but important improvements add up to a TV experience movie fans will struggle to tear their eyes from. The LG CX OLED comes in a mix of sizes, from a new-for-2020 48-inch size to a massive 77-inch screen.
The OLED65CX is gorgeous. The star of the show, as usual with OLED TV technology, is how incredibly thin its screen is: for around two-thirds of its rear area it’s insanely skinny – just a couple of millimetres deep. One of the HDMIs can also support ARC/eARC (audio return channel), so that the TV can output Dolby Atmos from streaming services or 4K Blu-rays to compatible soundbars or AV receivers.
