Picture Quality

LG OLED E7 has excellent picture quality. As we have mentioned, one of the advantages of LG E7 as part of OLED TV is about its perfect black level and infinitive contrast ratio, makes the picture looks excellent, especially when set in a dark room. Since it has self-lighting pixel, this makes it doesn’t emit any light at all when it is displaying a totally black color, result in perfect black level. This certainly makes dark scene of image looks very natural and fantastic. On other hand, when playing HDR images, its perfect black level also makes details of images in shadow or dark scenes looks very detail, makes the shadow details of HDR images looks great like what intended, even for Dolby Vision or Advanced HDR images that require higher display specs than HDR 10 or HLG.

Additionally, although its color volume is also not as good as Samsung QLED TV lineup, but it still has good color volume. It can show its wide color gamut on extremely dark colors. But at high brightness, its color gamut slightly narrows due it has RGBW pixels structure. Still about color performance, LG OLED E7 also already supports 10 bit depth of color that means it can deliver more than 1.07 billion shades of color. The result, color gradient of HDR images which mastered in 10 bit depth colors can be shown fairly smooth without any major color banding. Some little color bandings might still be visible on grayscale and darker colors, but overall, this is not really problem which can be taken seriously.

Motion Handling and 24p Playback

Like other model of LG’s 2017 OLED TV, LG OLED E7 has excellent motion handling. Its LG OLED E7pixel response time is extremely low, far lower than the lowest response time of LED TV. The result, when used for watching fast moving images like sport or fast movies, the picture displayed looks very clear and smooth with almost no motion blur visible, far smoother and clearer than LED TVs.  Additionally, LG OLED C7 also does a perfect job when used to play 24p movies.  No matter the source, whether it is 24p videos like Blu-Ray Movies, 24p videos via 60i signals like movies from Satellite TV, or even 24p videos via 60p signal like movies from streaming device, all of them are shown clearly and smoothly on the screen of OLED E7 without judder.
