“The selection process may not be easy – but as manager of your home entertainment system, the final decision is yours”
The season’s new TVS have arrived with perfect timing. Invest in a bigscreen beauty for the World Cup
We’re all fond of an underdog story. When it comes to the World Cup, however, history states you’re best off backing one of the favourites. That’s also true for the television on which you’re watching the action – these three 2018 TVS all come from heavyweights that lifted trophies at last year’s What Hi-fi? Awards. As it turns out, all are worthy of witnessing your indignation as another tournament draws toward the inevitable early exit.
Starting at 55in, we run the rule over the LG OLED55C8PLA, the entry level for the company’s finest TV technology. Equipped with 4K, HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision, it’s a strong line-up for this most recent OLED – and rarely does LG fail to total the sum of its parts.
It faces stiff competition from Sony, which promises the same HDR formats on a bigger screen for far less. The KD65XF9005 awaits a Dolby Vision update, but looks like a sterling set even before that. Finally, Samsung’s QE65Q9FN represents a coming of age for its QLED technology, now well worthy of its place in the first team.
The selection process may not be easy – but as manager of your home entertainment system, the final decision is yours.
