Picture Quality

LG OLED65E7V

Despite having a massive 65-inch display size, the LG OLED65E7V is already pretty good out of the box. After spending some time watching movies and playing with the default configuration, we tend to find ourselves making simple fine adjustments to what is already a superb image.

We further test the picture reproduction of this TV by playing Marco Polo and the LG OLED65E7V performed an amazing job. Especially on the lantern scene in the first episode, the OLED display perfectly did its job, with its floating lights against a pitch black sky.

The LG OLED65E7V is clearly an improvement on last year with a 25% increase in peak brightness and in detail. Not only do the lanterns stand out more brightly against the blackness of the night sky, they also glow naturally like your seeing the real thing. The scene surely did a stunning demonstration of OLED’s strengths.

Praising an OLED TV for its black performance is the new standard these days, but it still impresses us especially compared against LCD/LED.But, the LG OLED65E7V is still inferior in terms of brightness against LCD models.

After watching a few episodes of Marco Polo, this TV makes every scene look striking, without over saturating anything that will make it look unnatural. Detail levels are excellent, when watching a 4K Blu-ray content or even 1080p movies.

The LG OLED65E7V also has a neutral and natural approach to colours with a wide range of colour palette provide a high level of colour accuracy every scene. For a TV this size, we highly recommend getting the best out of 4K. The picture quality of this TV is deeply amazing with its clarity and control of the image. Really impressive.

Gaming

Gamers will definitely love this TV. Offering a stunning picture quality along with its low input lag of 22 ms on game mode. It is by far the lowest input lag from high-end TV’s that we have ever seen.
