LG Signature OLED TV W
In case you might have forget the CES 2017, LG showed a new line up of its TV product which was as thin as 4mm but yet had a mind blowing display quality and had all the premium features of the current TV lineup. Yes, now you remember, the wallpaper series of LG Signature OLED TV W is out on sale.
LG says the screen is just one-fifth of an inch thick, and the semi-flexible screen attaches to the wall with magnets. The 77inch LG Signature OLED TV W was first shown off at the Las Vegas CES event in January, and is now on sale.
Striking design is just the beginning of the story here, though. Certainly, because it is an OLED TV, reviewers such as myself are necessarily going to trip over themselves coming up with new ways to describe just how much of a feast for the eyes it is, but the W7 series is part of a new breed of OLED televisions for LG – one that is brighter, more accurate, and more capable than those of the past – making the task even tougher.
The W series uses a bit of trickery for pulling off its 0.2-inch thick design: the guts of the TV, including HDMI inputs and general hardware, are stowed away inside an attached Dolby Atmos soundbar below the TV. For what it’s worth (design aside), you’re still getting a fantastic TV. The W series supports all four main HDR standards (HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG, and Advanced HDR by Technicolor), offers full 4K resolution, and runs LG’s pretty good WebOS 3.5 smart TV software.
Now you might be wondering that if the TV panel is as thin as 4mm, then where are the ports that is connecting your additional speakers, HDMIs, USBs, Ethernet, or just your set-top box. Then here is your answer, the panel doesn’t have speaker attached in it, the TV panel is just a screen panel. It comes with an additional separate soundbar.
LG Signature comes with a soundbar which is power source and accessories hub for the LG Signature OLED TV W. All source components will connect to the soundbar, likely to one of four available HDMI (HDCP 2.2) ports, though a composite or component video connection can also be made using a set of provided break-out cables. Three USB ports (one of which is USB 3.0) are also available for playing back photos, video, or music files. Those who do wish to employ some sort of outboard audio system can use an optical cable, or the ARC-enabled HDMI 2 port. If you want a Dolby Atmos signal from the TV’s apps (Vudu currently supports this) then the latter is the way to go. The sound bar will pass through Dolby Atmos from other sources via a Dolby Digital Plus signal.
From the reviewers eye, the picture quality is outstanding, and there is no fault you can bring out from it. But the sound bar is quite promising, for a TV with a price tag of $20k, you will surely want some amazing sound quality too. LG knows the user experience very well, and this is why LG allowed the buyers to attach additional speaker via LG Signature.
