The best 50-55 inch OLED TVs

LG OLED55B8

Rating: 4.9

LG OLED55B8

Our selection begins with devices for which there is a place even in a relatively small room. As known, OLED TVs are not small. While manufacturers are not going to produce models for the kitchen or children’s room. Most the smallest OLED TV among those on sale right now has 55 inch display. This is exactly what the LG OLED55B8 has. it means that for comfortable viewing you need to be in two meters from the screen. Therefore, the purchase will look perfect in bedroom, but in the living room the TV may seem too small.

The device looks very beautiful. I don’t feel like it at all hang on the wall, since the TV has a very pretty stand. As for the frame, it turned out to be extremely narrow – you absolutely do not pay attention to him when watching a movie. Well, on the back wall of the device are all the necessary connectors: a trio of USB ports, four HDMI and one Ethernet jack for those who haven’t got a Wi-Fi router yet 802.11ac.

As you know, now there is no OLED TVs, screen which would have low resolution. Here is the buyer 4K picture is waiting. Color rendering – perfect, black colors turned out as deep as possible. Aspect ratio is standard, so YouTube videos do not have black stripes. And HDR support should also please – if the video has extended color range, then you get the most realistic image.

Concluding the conversation about the display, we cannot but mention that its refresh rate is brought to 100 Hz. The software method You can make the picture even smoother. In a word, this is very not bad for a budget OLED TV, which You can buy for only 100 thousand rubles.

WebOS is used here as the operating system. Like many LG TVs, this model works without any braking. She is also able to boast of a chic sound. The manufacturer introduced as many as four speakers with a power of 10 watts. Low frequencies also feel good, so many buyers don’t even think about connecting a home theater with separate subwoofer.

As befits a modern TV, LG OLED55B8 Supports all digital TV standards. You can at the same time connect both the terrestrial antenna and the satellite dish. Well, to USB ports connect external drives – flash drives and hard drives wheels. All media files are recognized – you can even run folders containing Blu-ray discs. Only limitation lies in the number of audio tracks. If there are more than ten, and Russian is only eleventh or even later in account, then you can’t choose it. This is such a webOS bug that they won’t fix everything.

The TV comes with MagicRemote, powered by two finger batteries. It can be used on manners, although it’s often much easier to select any element interface with familiar button presses. Also integrated in the remote microphone that recognizes voice commands. Search in YouTube is easier with voice than with letter by letter.

I got an OLED TV and a Bluetooth module. That means you without any problems you can bring sound to a wireless headset. By the way, do not use wired headphones it turns out – there is no corresponding connector. But we won’t even add this fact to the list of shortcomings, since wired headphones to such a huge TV – this is nonsense.

As mentioned above, the product has a beautiful stand. However, if you still want to hang it on the wall, then no one will forbid you to do this – only fixing will be required VESA compliant with 300×200 mm standard. Cope with the task you can even do it alone, since the weight of the TV without a stand is not exceeds 16.3 kg.

Advantages

  • Cost cannot be called prohibitive;
  • OLED display has a refresh rate of 100 Hz;
  • 4K resolution;
  • Stable operating system;

  • A huge number of connectors;

Sony KD-55AF8

A small OLED TV is also in the assortment of the Japanese company Sony This model features extremely narrow frames. Also very interestingly implemented stand – as if it completes itself OLED panel, almost without increasing the height of the TV. Of course, the device can also be hung on the wall – for this you will need VESA mount size 300×200 mm. Without a stand, the TV weighs only 18.7 kg, so you can fix it on the wall without help second person.

This model operates using a powerful processor X1 Extreme It’s easy for him to “finish” the missing frames, making the picture smoother. But this is not the main “trick” TV. The Japanese introduced Acoustic technology support Surface In total, sound is output using five speakers. There is even a full subwoofer! In some moments it seems that the sound seems to envelop you. If a put the TV in the right place, then extra No speaker system needed. Confuse someone can only the total power of the speakers, not exceeding 50 watts. However, this more than enough for a bedroom and a relatively small living room. And in larger rooms accommodate a 55-inch OLED TV the screen does not make any sense – it is better to purchase a model with a display on a good ten inches larger.

As expected, the TV shows the image in 4K resolution. Of course, there is support for HDR. OLED matrix displays a huge number of colors – in HDR mode you will see exactly what the director of the film or the studio-creator of the game intended. Frequency up to 100 Hz contributes to a realistic display. screen updates. The above processor can take pictures even smoother, but it’s better to refuse activation of this function, otherwise, from time to time you will notice artifacts in the frame.

Of course, the TV has a Smart TV function, just like other representatives of this rating. Unfortunately, Sony does not own operating system. But Android 8.0 also feels it’s great here – the components used provide excellent performance. And it would be strange if the TV for 200 thousand. rubles regularly slowed down! As you know, for Android A huge number of applications have been developed. Even if we consider only those that are adapted for installation on TVs, then the choice is amazing.

This model supports all digital TV standards. it means you can watch DVB-T2 with this TV, cable and satellite. No digital set-top boxes or receivers will be required. Others recommended to connect to Sony KD-55AF8 devices – for example, an action camera or a game console. At the same time, you can connect a very large number of devices. Four HDMI sockets alone have already been implemented here! Well, three USB ports allow you to power some individual gadgets and View media on an external drive. By itself, TV supports not only flash drives, but also external hard drives disks, no matter how large they are.

Of course, you can use not only a wired connection. For example, if you have a good router, this model allows go online at a very high speed. Also manufacturer I didn’t forget about the Bluetooth module, which is primarily needed for transmission sound on the headphones. Well, support for Miracast can turn TV to monitor, working in the same wireless mode.

Inside this device lurk 16 GB of permanent memory. This the volume is spent exclusively on installing third-party applications. But in general, this model leaves only positive impressions. Although a claim still can. Firstly, not all are installed on the TV programs that are available on Google Play – this is due to the fact that Sony actively struggling with pirated content. Secondly, it’s very bad here voice control works – it feels like the Japanese are almost worked in this direction. Third, switching channels here somewhat slowed down – at some moments it infuriates. Fourth, a sufficiently large number of defective copies were issued, on screen which after several months of use suddenly a bright annoying streak appears.

Advantages

  • Increased screen refresh rate;
  • All kinds of digital TV are supported;
  • A good audio system, including a bass;
  • A huge number of connectors;

Sony KD-65AF9

Rating: 4.9

Sony KD-65AF9

Another Sony TV in our ranking. This model is the freshest – in stores she appeared recently. Here An even more minimalistic stand is used. When the tv standing on the pedestal, then this stand is not visible at all – it’s all hiding behind the device! Of course, from the stand you can get rid by hanging the TV on the wall.

Well, how does this model sound? Do I need to buy a home cinema? Perhaps this is absolutely not necessary. Part The TV includes six 13 W speakers and two 10 W speakers. Such a speaker system perfectly produces both high and medium, and, most importantly, low frequencies. Acoustic Surface Technology Audio + helps achieve surround sound. But if your sofa will be far enough from the TV, then full acoustics 5.1 or 7.1 still does not hurt. But the soundbar for sure turns out to be superfluous – you don’t have much improvement in sound quality feel, but spend a lot of money. Although nothing beats with the amount that they ask for the TV itself – it’s 400 thousand. rubles.

It remains to add that this model without any problems defines any digital TV standards. It means that the user will definitely not need a set-top box or receiver to watch television. Well, if we talk about the shortcomings, then they practically absent. Not everyone will like Android, which is here used as an operating system.

In some cases, a device with a 76.7-inch screen (and this, for a minute, 195 cm) on the floor – the very place. However, most often this model hang on the wall.
