LG has had a topsy-turvy year in TV. On the upside, the brand’s taken the Smart TV world by storm with its WebOS interface. On the downside, it’s struggled to keep up with some rivals on the picture quality front.

The humble television is changing. As if touched up by a troupe of Kubrick monkeys, yesterday’s Full HD TV is now on course for a revolutionary image upgrade to 4K Ultra high-definition, an evolution fuelled by advances in panel production, the development of new compression codec technology and a crying need to inject life into the moribund global TV market. Frankly, we couldn’t be more excited.

The LG DM2350D is a jack-of-all-trades 3D display. A combination Freeview TV and PC monitor, it’s aimed at both 3D gamers and/or those that hanker after a multifunctional screen.

Passive effective has finally arrived LG’s debut Nano technology TV promises unrivalled LED pictures. John Archer discovers if that’s the case

While it’s now established that passive 3D technology is a great, family-friendly alternative to active 3D where 42in and possibly 47in screen sizes are concerned, I personally have had my doubts that LG’s new 3D approach works on bigger screens.

LG's B8 is a 4K HDR OLED TV for the masses – but does a less-powerful processor lead to a less impressive picture performance?

John Archer finds out if LG's cheapest 65in OLED TV is really the bargain it first appears

For many HCC readers, OLED remains the premier TV picture technology. Unfortunately, though, it's a technology that hasn't always screamed affordability, which is where LG's entrylevel B series comes in. Since 2018 these sets have adopted less-powerful picture processing than their higher-end stablemates, in a bid to give cash-strapped AV fans a more affordable OLED option.

hccbestbuybadgev3LG's OLED division looks set to face unprecedented competition in 2019, with Sony, Philips and Panasonic all introducing expanded ranges with bespoke technological tricks. But if the Korean brand's 65in OLED65C9 auditioned here is anything to go by, those companies will find it hard to end LG's long-term hold of the OLED crown. This flatscreen is an appealing mix of premium performance and user-friendly smarts.

There’s something stunningly beautiful about the LG E6 – and that’s without even turning it on. With its unfeasibly thin picture-on-glass design and Harman/Kardon crafted soundbar, this high-end OLED screen looks a masterclass in industrial design. It'll make visitors to your movie room gawp in surprise, and that's without showing them the £4,200 price tag.

A combination of gorgeous designs, a five-strong range targeting different buyers, and impressive picture quality improvements saw LG’s OLED models make huge inroads into the mid-range/premium TV market last year. With LCD/LED technology fighting back in emphatic fashion through direct-lit contenders from Sony and Samsung, however, the pressure is on LG to keep moving OLED forwards.

hccbestbuybadgev3LG's fine-tuned OLED impresses Steve May – even with an obvious spec-sheet omission

The LG E9 is an exceptional 4K flatscreen. Available in 65in (as tested here) and 55in guises, it's the top-ranked integrated OLED in LG's 2019 lineup, positioned above the C9 and B9. Burdened with glorious functionality, it employs the second-generation Alpha9 intelligent picture processor and offers support for high-frame-rate 4K sources via HDMI 2.1. Inevitably, there's a caveat. But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Fine-tuned powerhouse With THX certified 3D and net connectivity, this high-end plasma heavyweight is no wallflower. Steve May finds beauty within the beast

LG’s plasma screens have a reputation for unassailable value, but the brand was also first to ink deals with THX and ISF for certification and calibration, and has generally impressed with the finesse of its larger panels.

As Forrest Gump so very nearly said, Loewe is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. Thanks to the German luxury brand’s unique ‘consumer choice’ approach to design, it’s impossible for a reviewer to predict for sure what colour TV is going to emerge from the box, with which speaker options, or design of stand.

Dixons’ own-brand 3DTV ships with ten pairs of 3D glasses in the box. Unfortunately the quality of a set’s stereoscopy is not proportional to the number of comedy goggles it comes with.

Home cinema has a new reference The P55VT30 is the best domestic plasma TV John Archer has ever seen – and believe us, he's seen plenty of 'em

Panasonic has tried all manner of different TV sizes over the past few years, so I guess we shouldn’t be surprised to find it delivering another size ‘first’ in the form of its debut 55in model.

Big is always best Bigscreen addict John Archer gives over his entire office to spend quality time with Panasonic’s 85in 3D plasma

So here’s my dilemma. Do I get that brand new, fully loaded Audi Q7 I’ve had my eye on for so long, do I book the family into a luxury villa at the Maldives Hilton for, ooh, a couple of months or so, or do I buy Panasonic’s TH-85VX200 plasma screen?
