TV has reached its final form: Forget curved, forget the resolution wars and forget common operating systems. LG doubled down on its OLED technology with the Signature W. The unit is a mere 2,5 mm thick and actually can’t be displayed on a stand. That’s not a big issue though because the wall mount option is magical. It sits flat on the wall with the edges held down by magnets. Updates to the wider range of UHD LED panels were also announced.Samsung, however, went for the organic jugular by adding a metal component to its famed Quatum Dot technology which is now called QLED. In typical LCD fashion there is much talk of increased brightness, deeper blacks and fuller colour range. We were suitably impressed with the colour and clarity of the SUHD unit from 2016 and have very high hopes for the new QLED. Also the minimalist-friendly one cable system and smart device recognition box has received a big upgrade. Hisense were last out of the gates with further improvements to the ULED display (now with quantum dot) and an interesting laser TV that uses short throw laser projection. Our biggest wish is that the company joins the modern remote brigade and removes the number keys.
