Ultra HD Premium - meeting the highest standards in UHD 4K

Taking UHD 4K to its maximum ability, Ultra HD Premium introduces additional compatibilities and the assurance of the highest performance possible. Highlights include full compatibility with HDR (High Dynamic Range), making the LG OLED55b6V 55 inch OLED TV compatible with the exciting new 4K Blu-ray format. Coupled with the stunning resolution of UHD 4K - four times that of FHD 1080p - the results are sensational.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Dolby vision-equipped TVs, like this LG, can decode both generic HDR content and content that's specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

The finest screen technology - OLED
Welcome to the finest TV screen technology - OLED. Organic Light-Emitting Diode - OLED - TV offers perhaps the most advanced picture quality currently available. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

ColourPrime Pro technology
Helping to give this TV one of the most natural picture qualities in its class, LG's ColourPrime Pro technology displays the finest details of colour and gradation, giving a natural image that's as about as close to 'real life' as a TV can get.

Superior sound thanks to Harmon Kardon
Developed in conjunction with AV and Hi-Fi experts Harman Kardon, this 55 inch TV's audio system offers a step-up from the average 'thin' flatscreen TV sound. OLED Surround is also standard and gives a more spacious and immersive sound. With a compatible LG soundbar you'll be able to take advantage of the Wireless Sound Sync for a wire-free connection between components.

The best smart interface is better than ever with webOS 3.0
Widely acclaimed as one of the best smart TV interfaces, LG's webOS 3.0 operating system is now better than ever. WebOS 3.0 uses superimposed icons, folders and side bars for clear and easy access to smart content without leaving the current screen image. New to webOS 3.0 is the ability for split screen viewing, letting you watch live TV and Blu-ray, for example, at the same time. Other new features include LG smart appliance control and access to the LG Music Player app playing through the TV's speaker system - even when it's turned off.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

New "Magic" tech
Linking in with the new webOS 3.0 system is a range of "Magic" features. These include Magic Zoom for screen magnification without loss of image quality. The Magic Mobile Connection lets you stream apps from your smartphone, straight to the TV, for seamless big screen entertainment. An updated Magic Remote will now also operate the power on your set-top box, giving effortless one-remote control of your TV.

Move up to the LG OLED55b6V and discover just how 'real' TV can look. The answer is more natural than you'd ever have believed!

Motion Processing
Manufacturers now use their own measurements so can not necessarily be compared between brands. Examples include LG - Motion Clarity Index (MCI), Samsung - Clear Motion rate (CMR), Philips - Perfect Motion Rate (PMR), Sony - Motionflow XR and Panasonic - BLS (Back Light Scanning). All these figures are twice or more than the traditional 100Hz/200Hz refresh rate figures. No abbreviation indicates traditional measurement. Plasmas generally use a 600Hz sub-field refresh rate.
NA
LED Backlight
Does the TV have LED backlighting and what type is used? Full Array LED is generally agreed to be the highest spec and offers very even lighting and slim depth. Edge LED keeps a slim depth but relies on more processing for even lighting. Direct LED is the most basic and has the deepest depth. A simple 'Y' means the LED type is unspecified at present.

LG OLED55B6V is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG OLED55B6V - Wow Had a quality issue with a Samsung JS9000, replaced with this model. Wow - not as bright as the Samsung, but blacker than black - which is better than brightness in my opinion. This set feels the most "natural TV". The Netflix Dolby Vision (HDR) - on Marco Polo looks great. The user interface is snappy - YouTube (via web browser) is fast - and the TV's connection playing 4k is solid/stable. Some reviews complain - (1) It does not go bright enough - in a normal viewing environment - not an issue - my opinion only. (2) Motion handling issues - again watched several days worth of action movies - not noticed anything! (maybe fixed by the latest firmware - as stutter previously existed - not now). Summary - this is the best TV I have ever owned!!!. Even saw this against Sony's A1-55"OLED (2017) - could not tell the difference (as OLED v OLED = same great picture on both). Minor issue - Only passes Dolby/DTS through HDMI (Not Dolby/DTS HD sound)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a Pioneer KRP Replacement What an excellent TV. This has replaced my old Pioneer KRP plasma. I would say the picture quality is far superior in every aspect (blacks, peak whites, colour etc) apart from motion quality. This is due to the sample and hold technique employed on this OLED compared to the black frame insertion of the plasma. Putting the tru-motion on user setting and judder=0, blur=10 solves this issue. Motion is great and doesn't suffer with stutter that plasma's could exhibit. 4K = Wow. Just experience it, the step up is awe inspiring. Having all the modern features built in is certainly a plus point. Netflix/Amazon without a separate device. The menu's are easily navigated and the remote is a joy to use. Overall, the panel is superb. Its time to ditch the old plasma's and move on to the new technology. The price point and quality certainly justifies it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it Stunning picture quality. Great depth (almost appears 3D) Originally considered 65' LED screen but went for smaller 55" OLED. Twice what I have ever paid for a TV but not disappointed. TV is connected to a sound bar so haven't tested the TV sound quality. TV is wall mounted. Occasional reflection from lights in room if screen has black picture. Easily overcome. Overall very happy and would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV, great service from Callum and his team The only real problem with this TV is that it's probably slightly too big for my living room. But I'm sure it just takes a bit of getting used to. In every other respect, the TV and the buying of the TV from the Richer Sounds Chiswick team was a dream. And they popped it in a cab and delivered it to order. Richer Sounds service is second to none - and as someone who works in retail, I'm in a pretty good place to judge.
Date published: 2017-04-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lg oled tv I have been a Richer Sound customer for over 40 years and their service has always been impeccable. Out of the box the picture was a disappointment but once I had found my way into the settings I was able to adjust to my liking and the picture is amazing. Some reviews have mentioned motion issues but to date I have not seen any. It is a bit unnerving watching Breakfast and seeing all the blotches and wrinkles. For buyers who are not technically minded a decent operating manual would be helpful. A few years of future proof watching. Sound is reasonable for a flat screen tv.
Date published: 2017-04-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing picture but some minor drawbacks Simply stunning picture quality, Dolby Vision and HDR10 support make this a great screen. However, it comes at a cost, its clearly a step up from most LED TVs but you do have to pay quite a bit for a fairly marginal gain, especially considering the muted HDR brightness. The interface is quick and easy to use, but looks terrible, same with the remote, works well but looks very cheap. There is also no HDR YouTube and as yet (some reports of a future firmware update) no HLG support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Entry- Level OLED TV I had been waiting for the past few years for 4k TVs to mature as a product . This TV seems to me to be the most sensible entry point- the picture quality and feature set are fantastic, and comparable to TVs much higher up in LG and other's lineup.
Date published: 2017-04-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tv Just love this TV. Easy to set-up, and a brilliant picture. I just wish I'd waited 3 more days and paid £150 less for the TV. (It actually arrived 1 day before sale-reduced price started). We've been customers of Richer Sounds for years and bought all manner of TV's and speakers etc. from them - I know it's business but wish they'd let me know that they'd be discounting the price a 2 or 3 days time. Apart from that, the store manager was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and explained the pros and cons of different models.
