LG C9 vs LG CX - Two very similar OLEDs with slightly different features
The two OLEDs are very similar . Thus similarly even that only small but fine differences can be weighed with the purchase. In any case it is clear that the CX and C9 are both high end models, which have an almost identical picture quality – just like most other 2020 OLEDs.
Hence, only the features differ slightly. The CX has the Black Frame InsertionProcess that inserts black “blank images” as intermediate images. This makes movements appear finer and clearer. feature at 120Hz, Dolby Vision IQDynamic HDR-format with a color depth of up to 12 Bits and Mastering of up to 10,000 Nits, which can adapt to the ambient brightness and better integrated speakers. In return, the HDMI 2.1 interface of the C9 has a wider bandwidth – which really does not make a difference until now. Whoever can do without the additional features of the CX, or already owns a sound system can also purchase the C9, because in the end you get excellent picture quality from both devices, which can hardly be criticized. Only in very bright rooms both TVs do not perform quite as well, but neither TV has a real advantage in this field. Whoever is looking for a TV which performs well in a very bright environment can also consider Samsung’s Q90T.
For a great gaming experience, both TVs are great and there is no way to really pick a winner. The Black Frame Insertion feature at 120Hz of the CX can reduce the motion blur a little more, but otherwise the two OLEDs are equal – and due to the wide viewing angle, sports games like FIFA or PES can be enjoyed superbly on both TVs. So both TVs are well prepared for the Playstation 5 and the Xbox Series X!
