The dream of a cheap OLED may have to wait until next year, but one look at the C7 is all it takes to fall head-over-heels in love.. All in all, the rich, accurate color; perfect black levels; wide viewing; and generally smooth, acceptable motion settings combine to make for a picture that is truly breathtaking. Like top-notch HDR, OLED is one of those TV experiences you kind of have to see to believe.

Despite being entry-level OLEDs, both the 55- and 65-inch models in LG's B7 Series are phenomenal. These 4K OLEDs perform at the highest level, delivering the perfect black levels and rich colors we've come to expect from OLED TVs. All told, the B7 Series makes perfect sense for people who've been hunting for a great HDR OLED but who'd like to spend as little as possible to land one.

Just as we expected, the Q9 flagship is a knockout set. This TV packs in all the hot tech from 2017: quantum dot color, High Dynamic Range compatibility, and 4K resolution. Where 65-inch sets are concerned, the $3,500 Q9 is one of the year's top choices for big-spenders and videophiles.

At $2,500 for the 55-inch and $4,000 for the 65-inch, the LG B6 series isn't going to fly off the shelves at Wal-Mart, but it's still way more affordable than any OLED before. If you've been pining for a flat, not-insanely-expensive-and-frilly OLED that deftly avoids the issues that plagued the fledgling tech a few years ago, the LG B6 series is it.

In a nutshell, we can't realistically recommend LG's W7 OLED to most people. Why? Because we already know LG's other 2017 OLEDs—the G7, E7, C7, and B7—are likely to be nearly as good and cost significantly less. So for 99.9% of people, just wait and pick up one of those.
