There’s a lot to like about LG’s new OLED. A super-slim design alone wouldn’t have been enough to warrant the extra cost to upgrade to LG’s latest panel. But the thin frame on top of a Dolby Atmos soundbar on top of four types of HDR support on top of the magnetic mounting system on top of the new webOS 3.5 operating system surely did the trick.The LG W7 OLED is truly something special. Not only is it one of the thinnest TVs to ever grace our vision (it’s 2.75mm thin), but it’s also one of the most gorgeous. When fed the right kind of content – in this case, 4K HDR10 or Dolby Vision video – it truly shines.
That said, if you decide to buy the screen right now, your money stretches a bit farther this year. Not only are you getting a slimmer all-around TV, but you’re getting a better soundbar and a moderate improvement in terms of brightness and contrast.
