Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 55LF5800 does not feature OLED technology, although this is within the context that most of the other TVs of a comparable age and type to this TV also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the Samsung KE55S9, or the LG 55EC930 (£1,334.99) are also worth considering.
