Display

Features OLED Technology

The 55EG9609 features OLED technology, unlike most of the other TVs of this spec and age which do not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other TVs which feature OLED technology to this television and we think the LG 55EG960 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inches television.

If this television display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic TX-58DX800 (£1,780.10) (58") which also has a higher rating.

Weight & Dimensions

Quite Thin

At only 49.9 millimeters, the 55EG9609 has a fairly thin depth compared to most of the other televisions of this type and age. 4K and 8K TVs that are a similar age to this television have depths of between 17mm and 100mm.

We compared this television to all the other 49.9mm thick TVs and we think the 65EG960V (£1,199.99), and the 55EG960 both from LG which and both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

TVs with a thicker depth that might be worth considering include the Samsung UE40JU6410 (£449) (49.5mm).
