When the 3D TV was first released we knew right away that it was more of a gimmick than anything else, and looking how TV makers are starting to drop this technology, it does prove this. However, the same cannot be said for 4K, as we know that when it is something that truly improves the picture quality, consumers love it.
The only issue is that new technology tends to cost a great deal of money, and will only drop in price once sales increase, and also manufacturing costs reduce, in which case this leads to the consumer seeing those savings also. This is the very case with 4K televisions, as we have seen the cost of them fall at an alarming rate – so why are we still seeing some models buck that trend?
Take the LG OLED77G6P SIGNATURE OLED 4K TV; this is a television that makes use of 4K technology, yet it has one major flaw, and that is its $20,000 price tag. Come on, how many people does LG seriously think will buy one of these models? If you still want the same sort of technology, but are unwilling to pay it, then you could sacrifice 12 inches and opt for the OLED65G6P instead, which costs around $8,000 – so a massive saving there.
Ok, so we know that you get what you pay for, and the 77-inch Signature 4K OLED TV from LG is no exception, as it is right up there with the best on the market. Some of its features are truly amazing, such as HDR10 and Dolby Vision, webOS 3.0 smart TV software, Picture-on-Glass, Infinite Contrast, Cinematic Color, Natural Voice Recognition, and sadly there is still 3D – which we just cannot understand why.
