To get the jump on the next-gen console and new movies that will surely release soon, the best 4K TV might just be the LG OLED77CXPUA. Why? Next-gen consoles are taking advantage of HDMI 2.1, which this TV has. This is in addition to 120Hz, HDR10+ Dolby Vision, and Atmos, which provides awesome sound and picture quality for gaming and cinema.

Why We Like It – LG OLED77CXPUA

To future-proof your home for the next-gen consoles and the eventual surge of new movies, the LG OLED77CXPUA is packed with HDR10+ Dolby Vision/Dolby Atmos, 120Hz, and superb contrast ratio. That is twice the refresh rate of the LG OLED77C9PU, which has 60Hz. And if you need a slightly smaller screen, you can read our Samsung QN65Q80TAFXZCq review for a QLED option.

  • Excellent image quality w/ HDR10 Dolby Vision
  • Features built-in for gaming and cinema
  • Superb contrast ratio
  • Higher risk of burn-in
  • Pricey


The LG OLED77CXPUA’s HDR picture quality makes use of HDR10+ Dolby Vision IQ and Atmos to bring you a refined experience. It covers almost all of the DCI P3 color space and 3/4 of Rec. 2020. Peak brightness falls between 600-800 cd/m², depending on content. Contrast and local dimming are perfect. Unlike LCD TVs, the OLED panel can shut off individual pixels, thereby providing infinite contrast and zero blooming. For another option with a bright, sharp screen, read out our LG OLEDC9PUA review.

Built into the CX Series is both NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD’s FreeSync technology. Combine that with 120Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, low input lag, and OLED motion technology—you get buttery smooth HDR gaming. It’s a serious competitor against our top pick, the Samsung Q7F.


The LG OLED77CXPUA Smart OLED features an ultra-thin design. In the back is a single USB port with x3 HDMI 2.1 ports, a feature that the Sony XBR-A1E OLED is missing for next-gen consoles. You’ll also find x1 digital audio optical out, analog audio out 3.5 and RCA, composite, and Ethernet. There’s a lot going on with the remote control, but it contains quick access buttons for smart features, in addition to altering picture modes (like filmmaker mode), picture settings, and smart home settings. Even Apple TV can be streamed through alternative means. The TCL 5 series is another option you can check out if you want Airplay capability that is more budget-friendly.


The OLED77CXPUA LG OLED TVs are offering more than just incredible performance, but also flagship technology. For example, AI Picture Pro and AI Sound Pro provide enhancements to sound and picture based on the content you’re watching on the fly, like immersive ambiance. LG ThinQ AI, on the other hand, is an extension to your smart home AI system, offering recommendations and assistance. All of this comes in a package of $1500 at the low end and $3700 at the higher end, based on the size of the TV. You’re getting an amazing deal for what you get, the 48-inch variant, the cheapest one. You should seriously consider picking this up over our budget option, the TCL 55R617.


Concluding our LG CX OLED TV review, the LG OLED77CXPUA are some of the best TVs we’ve come across. They’re built to provide a superb experience whether watching cinema or gaming. With 120Hz, HDR10+, superb contrast ratio, and HDMI 2.1, this 4K TV is ready for the future. If you vary your content, you’ll never have to worry about burn-in.
