TL;DR: The 55-inch OLED 4K HDTVs from LG’s E8, C8, and B8 series offer incredible levels of picture detail, and if you hurry, you can shave an additional $50 to $100 off their sale prices in the PCMag Shop.
In the cases of tapeworms, pimples, and earthbound asteroids, “bigger” is the exact opposite of “better.” That’s not so with TVs, though: The bigger your display, the more immersive and cinematic its picture quality tends to be. (This is especially true with 4K HDTV models.)
The biggest downside to large TVs — as in, those over 50 inches wide — used to be that they were bulky and often too heavy to mount. But thanks to recent developments in OLED (“organic light-emitting diode”) technology, those gigantic displays can now be made sleek, thin, and super lightweight.
Suffice it to say: If you happen to be in the market for a new TV right now, an OLED 4K HDTV display is the perfect marriage of size, elegance, and picture quality. LG’s models from its E8, C8, and B8 series not only fit that bill, but they’re super affordable so long as you buy them through the PCMag Shop: There, prices were just slashed by $50 to $100 as part of a clearance deal that you definitely shouldn’t miss.
