While the size does matter here, the biggest draw of LG’s 118-inch TV is the Micro LED display tech bringing it to life. Often said to be the natural successor of OLED panels, Micro LED tech crams millions of micrometer-scale light-emitting diodes that can individually power and off. The result is an unprecedented level of control over color contrast, especially when it comes to reproducing accurate black tones. It’s touted to be better than OLEDs because they rely on organic components that have a limited lifespan and often lead to issues like burn-in.
Micro-OLEDs can also reach far superior brightness levels compared to an OLED, while its natural strength at local dimming ensures that you get the best possible viewing experience in terms of accurate color reproduction and dynamic range. In the case of LG’s latest TV, we are looking at “8 million-plus Micro LED pixels” ready to light up your room, complemented with a 150-degree viewing angle. And just like Samsung’s Frame series of minimalist TVs, LG’s offering also doubles as a massive photo frame for artistic pieces or family album set via a companion app.
Just in case you’re wondering, this is not the most expensive TV you can get your hands on in 2023. The bill for getting Samsung’s 219-inch The Wall Micro LED TV in your house runs up to $800,000. Panasonic’s TH-152UX1 3D Plasma TV costs half a million dollars, which falls in the same ballpark as the C Seed 201.
