Electronics Inc.'s 65- and 55-inch ultra organic light-emitting diode (OLED) television sets got the best marks ever for excellence by a U.S. consumer agency, industry watchers said Sunday.
Consumer Reports gave the two sets 88 points each, the highest score it has given in the TV evaluation category so far, the sources said.
This exceeds the 86 points that the monthly publication gave to LG's Signature series OLED TVs in November. TVs made by the consumer electronics giant were rated as the top products three times in 2016.
The two latest LG sets got very high marks for their exceptional resolution and contrast, ultra high definition and surround sound audio that all enhances the viewing experience. In particular, the TVs were praised for their high dynamic range technology
Among the top 10 rated TVs that received 80 points and above, those in the top seven were all made by LG with sets by Sony Corporation and Samsung Electronics also making the cut.
