LG 55EA9800 - 55" OLED Smart TV with Cinema 3D

Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
Some things must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with the new LG CURVED OLED TV. With deeper, richer colors and stunning contrast, it is unlike any technology you've ever seen, delivering a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination.

Your first kiss. A baby's first steps. The majesty of a desert sunset. Some things in life defy all explanation and must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with the new LG CURVED OLED TV. With deeper, richer colors and stunning contrast, it is unlike any technology you've ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination.

VIVID COLOR - LG's 4 Color Pixel technology adds a white sub-pixel to the conventional 3 color red, green and blue that enhances both color range and accuracy. This considerably improves the OLED pixels' ability to express the realistic colors and represents a giant step ahead of conventional displays. The 4 Color Pixel is LG's unique innovation for the next generation OLED TV.

Fuller color gamut - As the first display technology that allows self-lighting pixels to switch on and off individually, OLED offers the first "Infinite" contrast ratio. Contrast ratio measures the range from the brightest whites on the screen to the darkest blacks. Higher is better, and "Infinite" has been impossible...until now. The deep blacks will seem to melt away, for a greater sense of realism and depth on all content.

Stunningly curved - LG's remarkably thin CURVED OLED TV opens up a whole new possibility of style and design with a depth of only 4.5mm thick at its thinnest point. The brilliant technology of OLED enables a simpler internal structure than conventional displays. With just two layers, the LG CURVED OLED TV is unbelievably lightweight and wafer-thin.

Smart TV. Inspired by you - LG's intuitive Magic Remote is a simple and fun way to pick and choose what you want to watch. With just a point and click or use LG's unique Voice Mate, capable of recognizing how you naturally speak to change channel, volume or access premium content providers like Hulu Plus, Netflix and YouTube direct from your TV. Now, you can spend less time navigating and more time on your entertainment.

LESS TIME NAVIGATING - Easily select features on your TV with the wave of your hand, the scroll of a wheel or use LG's unique Voice Mate that is capable of recognizing how you naturally speak to change channel, volume or find something to watch. Plus control your Blu-ray, home theater system, set-top-box and sound bar with just one remote. Now, you can spend less time navigating and searching for remotes and more time enjoying your entertainment. Disclaimer: *Available on select models. For illustration purposes only. Your remote may differ from the one shown.

GET RID OF YOUR REMOTE COLLECTION - Get rid of multiple remote controls. Your LG Magic Remote can control your Blu-ray, HTiB, Set-Top-Box and sound bar so you don't have to search for the right remote for each of your different media devices.

THE CONTENT YOU WANT AT YOUR FINGERTIPS - Access premium content providers like Hulu Plus, Netflix and YouTube direct from your TV. Now you get your favorite movies, TV shows, gaming, apps and more. LG connects you to the content that you and your family want. Disclaimer: *Internet connection & some subscriptions required and sold separately.

SHARE YOUR MEDIA, YOUR WAY - LG gives you multiple ways to share your photos from your vacation, video from your child's recital or your favorite song to your TV from a compatible device. Whether you create a network with your compatible devices, access content stored in your LG Cloud or use an NFC tag to connect, LG makes it easy for you to share content with friends and family.

Ready to be blown away? Want 3D like you get in the movie theater? Lightweight glasses, cool 3D effects and a great picture? LG's Cinema 3D TV can bring all this right into your home. Enjoy easy to use & share 3D glasses, outstanding picture quality and amazing 3D effects - that's what you get with an LG Cinema 3D experience. Disclaimer: For a small percentage of the population, the viewing of stereoscopic 3D video technology may cause discomfort such as headaches, dizziness or nausea. If you experience any symptoms, discontinue using the 3D functionality and contact your health care provider.

EASY TO LOVE. EASY TO SHARE - With LG Cinema 3D glasses it's easier than ever to share immersive 3D images. Battery-free, flicker-free, low cost glasses, just like the ones you get at the movies, allow users to outfit family and friends for an affordable price. 4 sets of glasses included.

TWO-PLAYER SPLIT SCREEN GAMES ON THE FULL SCREEN - Now two-player split screen gaming is on the full screen on the same TV with LG's Dual Play* technology. While wearing the special light-weight and battery-free glasses, each player is only able to see his unique point-of-view (in 2D) and across the entire TV screen without being able to see the opponent's. No more sharing the TV screen real-estate and no more cheating by peeking at each other's screens while you battle it out in 2-player games such as Forza Motorsport  4. Dual Play works with most current gaming systems or even older consoles as long as it is a split-screen game. Dual Play uses two pairs of special glasses F310DP sold separately in a bundle.

*Two player compatible games required and sold separately. For a small percentage of the population, the viewing of stereoscopic 3D video technology may cause discomfort such as headaches, dizziness or nausea. If you experience any symptoms, discontinue using the 3D functionality and contact your health care provider.

UNLIMITED 3D CONTENT - Don't worry about lack of 3D content! LG's 2D to 3D conversion automatically convert shows and movies into 3D.

5 out of 5 stars   The best picture I''ve ever seen!

Review submitted for LG 55EA9800 - 55" OLED Smart TV with Cinema 3D (LG55EA9800)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: - Perfect blacks - Designed like a piece of art - No limit to viewing angles - 2 3D glasses and 2 3D clip-ons (great for people with glasses) - Perfectly calibrated in the factory - Curve doesn't affect the viewing experience - Good sound on the internal speakers - Good customer service and great price from Beach Camera
Cons: - I'm not a fan of the "mouse" style remote control - Need to use onscreen menu to control other devices - Can't be wall mounted (if that's important to you) - Very expensive - On some broadcast shows, the picture doesn't look at much better than LCD. Blu-ray and shows with dark/moody lighting look much better, however.
Other Comments: The Look The physical design of this set is a thing to behold. I’ve seen it at stores and at CES in Las Vegas but it was always displayed next to a wall or another TV. I put it on a table that (for the moment anyway) is in the middle of the room. Everyone who has visited is amazed at both the curved design and how very thin the screen is. I had a washing machine repairman at the house last week and he stopped mid-room and asked “Sir, can I look at your TV?” Of course I said yes. I eat that sort of feedback up like candy. The back is very clean and has the “classic” carbon fiber pattern to it. The very narrow bezel means that it takes only 4 inches more horizontal space than the 46” LCD it replaced. The set can’t be wall mounted and the clear “ribbon” stand can’t be removed. The Sound I wasn’t planning on getting much sound from the see-through speakers in the stand but I was pleasantly surprised. Half volume was plenty loud for normal viewing. For a set of this level, I’d suggest a full home theater surround sound set up, of course. You wouldn’t want to do a sound bar on this set – it wouldn’t look good next to the clear stand. The Picture What can I say? This is the best picture of any TV I’ve ever owned. Black is the absence of light and that provides infinite contrast. The set is pre-calibrated at the factory. The THX mode is perfect in every respect – at least as much as the calibration equipment that I have can determine. You can’t adjust THX mode. ISF Expert modes 1 and 2 are also calibrated but you can adjust those if you feel the need. I’m not going to post settings as I didn’t need to make any changes. One thing. Some programming will look much better on an OLED than on a LCD set – most Blu-ray movies, TV shows that have a lot of dark backgrounds and moody lighting. But shows that are very bright – sports, talk shows, and scripted shows that are filmed with limited contrast—won’t look that much different. I see no changes in picture quality regardless of viewing angle. You can stand facing the end of the set and the parts you can still see (mostly the opposite curved part) still looks great. The curved design really isn’t noticeable when sitting in front of the set. I forgot about that aspect of the design almost immediately. The Remote The remote control I’m less happy with. It’s a virtual mouse device. You wave it in front of the TV to move a cursor around. Unfortunately the remote goes into sleep mode very quickly and I have to shake it to wake it up. You can control other devices but that’s done through an onscreen menu. So stopping a movie playing on Blu-ray means clicking the menu button, shaking the remote awake, move the cursor to the stop button on screen, and clicking. I’m sticking with my universal remote. The LG remote is RF but the TV still listens for IR signals too. However, there’s no way to learn commands with a universal remote beyond the default codes built in. The Delivery A common carrier delivered the set. If you’ve not worked with a common carrier before, it’s not as straight forward an experience as with Fedex or UPS. I ordered it on a Monday and the delivery took place 8 days later. The set is shipped in both a cardboard box and a wooden crate. The driver didn’t have tools to open the crate. So I had to do that. 15 1.5 inch screws later, we had the box out of the crate. The box itself is very simple. There are no packing materials on the screen part of the set. It’s all supported from the bottom. If this set was put on it’s side at any point during shipping, I think a lot of damage would occur to the flexible screen. The Vendor I ordered from Beach Camera (via Amazon). They were cheaper than Amazon at the time and there’s no sales tax. Amazon charges sales tax in Texas. This is the second time I’ve purchased a large TV from Beach and I highly recommend them.
