LG 2024 TV Range – bigger, brighter, and better (AV)

The LG 2024 TV range is not just bigger and brighter; it is also smarter and cheaper. Offering 4K UHD, QNED, Mini-LED, and OLED TVs from 42” to a massive 98”, each TV has LG’s legendary picture quality and technical prowess, setting it apart from the competition.

The market is flooded with many brands and models. While over 40% of TVs sold in 2023 were 75” or more, it is crucial to remember that the screen size shouldn’t be the sole deciding factor. Opting for the largest screen at the lowest price comes at the expense of image quality, a compromise that may not be worth it in the long run.

CyberShack focuses reviews on image quality, not price. Our research since its first OLED model 11 years ago has consistently shown that LG TVs, regardless of panel technology, stand out for their superior image quality and, importantly, their TV smarts (LG webOS operating system).

For example, over 400 engineers work on making webOS smarter via machine learning and now AI to produce a better image. Side-by-side brand comparisons show LG has far clearer, sharper, and more natural-looking colour images, especially when upscaling from lower-resolution SDR, free-to-air, and streaming TV content.

The good news is that from webOS 2024, LG offers four years of upgrades with most TVs (upgrades depend on the processor and memory) and will backdate upgrades to some of its 2022 and 2023 models. This industry-leading policy gives you a future upgrade path for new features and better security.

And finally, the LG 2024 TV range costs less than the 2023 models. To a degree, that is due to improved currency exchange rates and lower shipping costs, so all manufacturers should be able to reduce 2024 model prices.

CyberShack’s view – the LG 2024 TV Range is quite a step forward

At the launch, we saw the various panel technologies side-by-side. It allowed us to see the differences that the Alpha processor generations make and the improved AI picture quality difference.

The 2023 G3 evo OLED was groundbreaking for brightness and colour depth. But, the 2024 G4 evo OLED is visibly better and brighter.

The Wireless M4 series is spectacular, offering the convenience of 4K@144Hz wireless transmission (no cables). The panel can be wall-mounted, hung as an architectural feature, or gallery leg stand mounted.

For my money, the C4 stands out for evo OLED value.

The QNED91 mini-LED will be its main competitor at around $1500-2000 less.

The B4 is important because it offers LG’s legendary OLED image quality and saves $1000 over the C4. It is more cost-competitive with 2024 OLED offerings from TCL and Hisense.

If you want a hulking big 98″ TV, the QNED89 is the one. It uses FALD (Full array local dimming) – not quite as bright as mini-LED but perfect for this TV size.

Not to downplay the edge-lit QNED86 and QNED81, as these compete squarely with most Samsung models with the advantage that these offer a Dolby Vision and Atmos experience (Samsung does not support Dolbly Vision on any of its devices). The 86 offers improved brightness.

The UT80 is a terrific value 4K TV that competes squarely with the plethora of cheap, generic brand, Chinese-made TVs. It offers a quality choice and LG heritage.

StandbyMe is a unique product for portability.
