LG is one of the most well-known panel manufacturers in the industry along with Samsung, so when we see a new LG TV come out that promises to buck the trend, we listen. Fortunately, the LG C2 is a perfect entry into the premium TV category, and with the deal from Woot bringing it down to $1,395 from the usual $2,500, it’s an incredible steal.
That’s why you should buy the 65-inch LG C2 OLED TV
The first thing you might notice when you receive The LG C2 OLED TV is incredibly light, only 37 pounds or so with the stand, which seems too low for something as powerful as the C2. Fortunately, the OLED panel is sublime, with the ability to reproduce deep blacks, and the Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor does a fantastic job of pumping out brightness while still preserving detail. That’s interesting given OLED’s tendency to do better with contrast, while QLED does better at deep blacks, and while we have a deeper breakdown of QLED vs. OLED technology, suffice it to say that OLED has a lot of advantages, from being easier on the eyes, having better viewing angles and generally lower response times and input lag.
As for the experience, the LG C2 relies on WebOS and we’re happy to report that overall it’s a great experience with easy access to most streaming content. The included remote is versatile, with plenty of quick buttons for one-click access, and if that’s not enough for you, it even comes with an included microphone so you can control everything with your voice. It also has integrations for all the virtual assistants and if you are a gamer, the TV comes with Nvidia G-Sync so you can connect a powerful gaming PC and get an excellent experience. As for the audio experience, it’s not bad, especially for a TV this thin and light. That said, we’d definitely encourage grabbing one of these soundbar deals for better sound.
Overall, the LG C2 OLED TV has some of the best picture quality on the market, with a great smart platform to work with. Combine that with the Woot’s $1,395 price tag and you’ve got a steal of a deal, and it’s easily one of the better TV deals we’ve seen in a while.
