LG 2017 OLED and Super LED UHD 4K TVs: Hands-on review

The Wallpaper TV, Dolby Atmos sound bars, 6 Series, 8 Series, C-series OLED Smart 4K UHD TV

The 2016 units were stunning. So are the 2017 models. Theis is the W-series "Signature" Edition which is so thin it basically sticks to the wall. Despite the lack of body it actually costs a lot more. But at least it comes with an amazing, $1,700 Dolby Atmos soundbar with two Height channels. The only issue might be that you can't not buy the sound bar!

We visited a mansion hosting all of LG's new 2017 TVs and got to grips with what to expect.

On display was the new 2017 OLED TV range which is somehow (supposedly) more stunning than the 2016 OLED TVs - apparently it's down to a new chemical structure and lighting algorithm which dynamically analyses a picture in a 14-bit colour space to work out how to best display it(!). All of them now have built-in, Dolby Atmos soundbars. The remotes have all been tweaked and now have Amazon Prime buttons joining the Netflix buttons.

We also saw the (much) cheaper, Super LED LCD TV range. These are capable of some impressive colour performance but we did see some red flags too. We'll be looking forward to bringing the full reviews in due course but here are some of the important take-away points...

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
