This LG OLED comes in as our #7 pick for the best tv monitor for gaming. Offering an excellent 4K picture quality, a wide variety of picture settings (such as Filmmaker mode), and digital audio powered by Dolby Atmos, these OLED TVs provide some of the best picture performance on the market today.

Why We Like It – LG OLED65CXPUA

The LG OLED65CXPUA is a smart OLED TV available in variously-sized OLED models. The CX series comes in a 48, 55, 65, & 77 inch model (although in this LG CX OLED TV review we will be focusing on the 55-inch size). With Dolby Vision IQ, Dolby Atmos, superb viewing angles, and voice control features powered by Google Assistant & Amazon Alexa, the LG CX OLED offers much better performance than your average LG TV.

Pros
  • 120Hz Refresh Rate
  • α9 Gen 3 AI Processor 4K (With AI Picture Pro & AI Sound Pro)
  • Dolby Vision HDR
Cons
  • Requires Using The Magic Remote Control For Voice Control
  • Expensive

Performance

Overall performance seems like a fitting way to start this OLED TV review. LG went all-out on this TV, which is based on webOS and powered by the a9 Gen 3 AI Processor 4K. This allows it to quickly upscale non-4K content to near-4K quality, working hand-in-hand with OLED Motion Pro to deliver an excellent image quality even in fast-moving scenes. This smart TV has individually lit pixels, thanks to the OLED screen, meaning it has an infinite contrast ratio that performs perfectly no matter what you’re watching.

Viewing Angle

You’ll experience excellent viewing angles from this 65″ OLED TV (if even the larger 77” model isn’t big enough for you, consider a massive TV like the Sony X900H 85 Inch TV: 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV instead!). You won’t notice color washout until about 48°, and there won’t be any brightness loss until 62°. Black level raise doesn’t start until 70°, giving this TV a wide viewing angle for its amazing OLED display. The anti-reflective glossy finish on the display also helps with this by reducing reflections in bright environments.

Durability

The LG has a solid one-piece stand, unlike models such as the Samsung Q80R TV, which uses two feet instead. This results in nearly non-existent play, although since the stand is super thin you may actually block part of the screen if you place a soundbar in front of it. The top part of the back of this TV is solid metal, & the bottom half is plastic, which looks sort of odd but works well. The front of the TV has extremely thin bezels (0.35″) which won’t detract from your viewing experience.

Ports & Expandability

Inputs & outputs on this TV can be found split between the back and the left-hand side of the monitor. The OLED65CXPUA has a total of 4 HDMI ports (with ARC support on port #2), 3 USB ports, a tuner, and an ethernet port, although it lacks a DirectPort often found on high-end models. It does, however, have a composite input with the adapter included! For output, this TV has a digital audio output, a standard 3.5mm audio jack, and works with Bluetooth speakers/headphones.

Value

Quality usually doesn’t come cheap, and unfortunately, that stays true with this TV. At nearly $2,200, this TV is anything but cheap. Of course, if the $2,196.99 price tag is too high for you, there are suitable alternatives available, such as the Sony X950H. However, if you do have the funds to purchase this TV, then you’ll be happy to know that delivery is free (although it’s not offered through Amazon Prime). Sadly, there isn’t a warranty available, although you can add a 3-year protection plan for an additional $149.99.

LG OLED65CXPUA Wrap Up

Overall, the LG OLED65CXPUA is the point where performance meets price tag. While this TV certainly isn’t affordable (or reasonable) for the average consumer, it definitely is a worthwhile purchase if you’re looking for one of the best viewing experiences currently available on the market. Our only complaint: at this price, we don’t think you should need the remote to use voice control.
