It has a fast response time and low input lag, which is great for gaming. However, its HDR brightness is only fair, which could affect viewing HDR content to its fullest potential. The lack of built-in great speakers might require a separate sound setup for the best audio experience. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Movies & TV shows:
4.7
The LG B1 OLED's exceptional contrast and perfect black uniformity provide a deeply immersive experience for watching movies and cinematic TV, creating true-to-life images with accurate dark scenes. Its good color accuracy out of the box and wide viewing angles ensure that the picture looks consistent and vibrant from different seating positions.
Gaming:
4.7
PerfectRec’s gaming score measures a TV's performance when it comes to playing video games. It is based on several factors that can significantly impact the quality of the gaming experience, including screen response time, input lag, and refresh rate. Screen response time is a critical factor that determines how quickly the TV can transition from one color to the next, while input lag measures the delay between the gaming console output and the TV display. Refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that the TV displays a new frame, which can impact the smoothness of the gaming experience. The gaming score also takes into account two other features: local dimming in gaming mode, which can enhance contrast and picture quality, and black frame insertion, which can reduce screen brightness and create a smoother gaming experience.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.6
PerfectRec’s news, talk, & other TV score prioritizes upscaling, brightness, contrast, out of the box color accuracy, and screen uniformity. This is because almost all news and talk shows are created in Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) with lower resolutions, such as 720P and 1080P. The purpose of this prioritization is to ensure that lower resolution content looks good on a 4K display and to help you identify which TV will perform best when watching live TV via Cable, Satellite, or Antenna.
Sports:
4.5
The LG B1 OLED TV is excellent for watching sports due to its superb response time which ensures fast-moving scenes are clear and without motion blur, paired with its wide viewing angles that maintain image accuracy from different seating positions. Additionally, it handles reflections very well, minimizing distraction from ambient light during the game, but its motion processing is rated lower than some other aspects, which could affect how smooth fast-paced action appears.
Overall Picture:
4.5
The LG B1 OLED's picture quality is exceptional due to its perfect contrast and flawless black uniformity, providing intense, deep blacks that greatly enhance the viewing experience. Additionally, its wide color gamut and good color volume ensure vibrant and true-to-life colors straight out of the box, without the need for calibration.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.4
The LG B1 OLED TV is excellent for watching cartoons and animation due to its very good performance in displaying accurate colors straight out of the box and its very good color gamut, ensuring a wide range of colors is represented vividly and precisely.
Bright Room:
4.0
The LG B1 OLED TV is good for watching in a bright room because it has good SDR brightness, allowing it to overcome ambient light, and excellent reflection handling, minimizing the impact of light sources reflected on the screen. Despite that, its HDR brightness is only fair, which means that while HDR content will still look good, it might not be as bright as on TVs with better HDR performance.
