LG E9 OLED TV Review | Worth the upgrade over the C9?



The LG E9 sits above the C9 in the 2019 range and features a picture on glass design with front-firing speakers. It features the new second-generation Alpha 9 processor which adds new AI features for picture and sound quality. It also features HLG and HDR10 static metadata, with Dolby Vision dynamic metadata systems, but there is no HDR10+. WebOS is still one of the best Smart TV systems on the market and LG has gone for future-proofing the E9 with the addition of HDMI 2.1 as well as adding a menu place for smooth gradation and Dynamic Tone Mapping Pro, for improved HDR10 performance. Plus, just like the C9, we can customise the HDR tone map within the CalMAN AutoCal system based on the exact peak brightness performance of the panel. This maps HDR content perfectly to the capabilities of the E9 panel. So, can the LG E9 offer enough of a difference in design and performance to justify the price increase over the excellent C9? Let’s find out.

We will always be transparent about who supplies a TV for review and the supplier (whether it is the manufacturer, distributor or retailer) never has any influence or input into our reviews. We will never accept payment to review a product as we insist on complete independence in our reviewing.
If a review is made possible by a retailer loaning it to us, we will state this within the review. We do this so that if a viewer is so inclined, they can use that retailer in return for helping to make our reviews possible. We will NEVER mention a retailer in a video where they have not supplied the product for review, or otherwise, intentionally mislead the viewer in any way.
