LG BX OLED TV Review: Amazing Value for Money OLED TV



Read the full in-depth review – https://www.avforums.com/reviews/lg-bx-4k-oled-tv-review.17086 The LG BX is the company’s latest entry-level 4K OLED TV and comes in 55-and 65-inch screen sizes and retains most of the features found on the midrange CX model but with the less powerful α7 Gen 3 AI processor. The BX carries over all the features from last year such as support for 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) with a wide colour gamut (DCI-P3/Rec.2020) and high dynamic range (HDR10, Hybrid Log-Gamma and Dolby Vision). Annoyingly, LG still refuses to support the HDR10+ dynamic metadata format, but it has added Dolby Vision IQ. This uses a light sensor built into the TV to measure the ambient light in the room and adjust the Dolby Vision dynamic tone mapping accordingly. LG also supports Filmmaker Mode, which provides users with an easy to select mode designed to ensure the content creator's vision is delivered exactly as they intended. The mode can be engaged automatically or manually selected, depending on your preference. There are also two ISF modes for day and night and LG also supports Calman auto-calibration software. The BX supports ThinQ AI smart features and includes built-in Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The WebOS smart platform also has Disney+ and Apple TV+ added this year, making it even more comprehensive in terms of video streaming services. However, there is no Freeview Play support for the 2020 models and as such there are limited terrestrial apps available with BBC iPlayer the only one available at the time of the review. LG has said they are talking to the other app providers to have them added with ITV due soon, but this may take some time to achieve and may also not happen. Keep this in mind if you buy a 2020 LG TV. For gamers, there are two HDMI 2.1 inputs with support including VRR, ALLM, 4K/120Hz and an extremely low input lag. New this year is NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility for a PC gaming experience free from screen tearing or other distracting visual artefacts. The BX also features the HDR Gaming Interest Group’s HGiG Mode so gamers can enjoy high-quality visuals as game creators and developers intended when playing HDR games via consoles. In terms of the audio side of things, there's still support for Dolby Atmos, but you'll also be able to add Bluetooth speakers to use as rear channels. However, there is no support for DTS audio on the BX. So, with the BX looking like a bargain at this moment in time, is it worth the money or are you better spending a little more on the CX model?
