2019 LG C9 OLED 4K TV Hands on: Unboxing and Setup

  • Опубликовано: 12 апреля 2019
  • Hot new 2019 TVs are starting to come out and we begin our review season with the highly-anticipated LG C9 OLED 4K HDR TV. Positioned as LG's second most affordable OLED, the C9 series offers LG's best OLED panel and picture processing available. Typically the C series doesn't get the same design treatment as its more expensive cousins, but it appears LG has changed up its philosophy in that regard. Watch our unboxing of the C9 OLED, assemble the TV, get a close, hands on look, and explore some basic picture settings.

      @Ali Al Iraqi I'm waiting on the 12K TV. It's in R&D at Sony with 144 inch screen! Sometime in 2022. Initial price point will be $4,995.

      Anything above 75 inch and above, if you prefer 65 inch the like myself due to my room size then 4k is perfect, but they claim pixels per square in are less when you go above 65 inch tvs

    If mounting the C9 to a wall, what happens to the ‘scoop’ bar that seems to be fitted to the base stand. Can it not be fitted if the tv is wall mounted

      I have to be in the minority because I absolutely love the soap opera effect on my picture. It just feels like I'm literally in all the action in person.

            It's not perfect out of the box like you said and tou dont even have the new peak brightness feature I'm guessing the side by side with the c8 you didnt have it on either meaning the c9 you would of noticed just how much brighter it was then the c8 with actual content as many others have noticed and that was hdr content you were using so you have to have that on there were a few festures that need to be on I'm thinking you had them off like a few others have then they get told and bam huge difference

                    Do what i did. Wall mount it and trunk the cables. Buy a decent soundbar and you essentially got yourself a w8 wallpaper tv for half the price. I picked up a new C8 65 for £1900 and I'm biggly impressed.

                      ask you for a hand, I have the budget to change the television and I'm really undecided between lgC9 55 and qled q90 55,
                      to see the tests it would seem nn to have left us but I am terrified of the burn in, it is a real risk or are they a concern of mine? I know what needs to be done to avoid it but is it enough?
                      keep in mind that the TV would be placed in a not very bright room
                      thanks for the help and your precious videos
                      good evening

                                  Just an FYI the stand for the 77" version I purchased is quite different. The stand comes pre-assembled and does not have the channel in the back for cable management. It's also quite a bit smaller in the back. The TV doesn't really lock into the stand at all and the manual LG provided indicates that you should lay it down flat and then attach the stand. My TV also leans back a fair amount when on the stand which is somewhat disappointing.

                                                        hey there. I've got a 65" LG OLED C6 right now. I have a pretty bad case of posterization and vignetting. I even had a LG technician come to my house to see for himself how bad it was at times. He told me that those issues were linked to the OLED tech. I learned to live with it but now that this C9 is about to released, i was counting on your honest opinion to let me know whether replacing my TV would be worth it. Having played with it and probably My aim is to essentially watch 4K content preferably HDR / dolby vision (netflix). I could get a good deal for it so that's why i was defering to you for advice. THX. GREAT reviews by the way

                                                          I’m a bit confused about connecting devices. I use a Yamaha receiver and all my devices are plugged into that with one HDMI cable going to my current set. Is there an advantage connecting everything to the TV and letting it do the switching? I’m rocking an old Yamaha receiver and a Samsung Plasma so I’m probably going to have to update the Yamaha too if I buy this TV. Thanks.
