What characterises this product line? OLED technology is one of the most advanced display types on the market. A typical feature of these TVs is their excellent picture quality in dark environments, which is produced by a perfect black and a theoretically infinite contrast. However, with increasing illumination, the picture quality diminishes because most OLEDs are not allowed to become very bright, otherwise the organic LEDs would be damaged by the excessive heat.
The BX OLED is in a completely different league to the NANO91. Due to the OLED construction, it has a perfect black and a theoretically infinitely high contrast, which makes its picture quality in dark environments truly breathtaking. The same is true for motion handling.
TVs with In-Plane Switching, type of LCD Panel panels simply can’t match the response time of an OLED, which at 0.2 Milliseconds means an almost instantaneous colour change of the LEDs. In addition to HMDI Forum Variable Refresh Rate – synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the output refresh rate of the graphics card, the BX is also equipped with NVIDIA Variable Refresh Rate for Nvidia graphics cards and AMD Variable Refresh Rate with AMD graphics cards or consoles.
Unfortunately, the BX does not get particularly bright. This is not only a negative factor for picture quality in bright rooms, but also for High Dynamic Range – image/video with more dynamic range (contrast range) content. Due to the low maximum brightness, these cannot be displayed quite as well and bright highlights do not really catch the eye.
The CX OLED is the crowning glory of LG’s 2020 lineup and is arguably one of the best TVs of the year. Like the cheaper BX OLED, it has an almost unbeatable picture quality in dark environments, but unlike the latter, it can get significantly brighter.
The CX’s panel achieves around 820 SI unit of luminance: 1 nit = 1 cd/m2 – The best way of measuring and comparing a TVs brightness . This should be sufficient for normally lit rooms. High Dynamic Range – image/video with more dynamic range (contrast range) content also benefits immensely from this, as bright highlights can be displayed much more clearly.
Like the BX, the CX OLED also has the Process that inserts black “blank images” as intermediate images. This makes movements appear finer and clearer. feature at 120Hz. However, it can make better use of it, as the image becomes darker through the use of the feature and the CX can compensate for this better due to the higher brightness.
The LG model GX OLED has the same technical equipment as the CX, but brings an elegant look and the so-called “Gallery Design”. The TV is supposed to look like an art object and thus fit seamlessly into the interior of the room.
To achieve this, LG relies on a gapless wall mount and a slim, chic frame and takes advantage of the wide viewing angle of the panel. If desired, the TV can also be set upright, but the matching stand must be purchased separately.
What characterises this product line? The UHD 4K TV series mimes the spot for the entry level devices in LG’s lineup. Within this product range, you will find affordable devices that differ quite clearly from the premium line in terms of picture performance.

- UN7100 Series
The UN7100 is a successful 4K Smart TV for beginners from LG’s 2020 line-up. The In-Plane Switching, type of LCD Panel panel offers a wide viewing angle and a quite respectable picture in bright surroundings, which is probably due to the good reflection behaviour. In dark environments, however, all IPS panels do not perform quite as well.
Due to the low contrast of 1050:1 and the only slightly deep black, the picture quality is not quite as convincing here. The maximum brightness of around 350 SI unit of luminance: 1 nit = 1 cd/m2 – The best way of measuring and comparing a TVs brightness is not particularly high and the colour space is not extended.
Therefore, High Dynamic Range – image/video with more dynamic range (contrast range) content does not look very different from normal SRD content. However, its motion handling is quite reasonable despite the 60Hz panel. Due to the low response time of about 5ms, only some motion blur is noticeable during fast movements.
If you’re looking for a gaming TV and don’t need to fully exploit the upcoming Next Gen consoles, you’ll appreciate the UN7100. The low input lag of 10ms makes the TV very responsive and an Auto Low Latency Mode is also available.
In terms of smart features, the UN7100 is excellently positioned and is just as smart as LG’s considerably more expensive OLED series – but only if you also get the Magic Remote. An additional feature, such as HDMI 2.1, a variable Hertz is the derived SI-unit of frequency with 1Hz=1/s – When talking about TVs this means how many different pictures a TV can display in one second. or a twin tuner, has been saved by LG for the more expensive models.
