The B7A is the perfect choice for HDR content. On top of its exceptional picture quality with perfectly deep blacks, it has everything essential to an excellent HDR experience: an OLED panel, wide color gamut, and high peak HDR brightness levels. Shadow details are perfect and highlights are really stunning, making for an immersive experience. The OLED panel can manipulate pixels individually, which means it has control over every tiny bit of the picture. The panel can also reproduce the colors necessary for true HDR, and these colors will really pop thanks to its high peak brightness level of ~700 nits. See More
The main drawback of OLED panels are image retention issues with static images - pixels on the panel gets burned in when the picture doesn't change for extended periods of time. This usually happens with content that has a static image anywhere on the screen, like the logo of TV channels. As the B7A has an OLED panel, it unfortunately suffers from this problem. There might be some retainment of artifacts for ~15 minutes when this happens, and it usually goes away after watching other content without static images. There are some cases where normal content won't cut it, which usually happens when the static image has been there for more than some hours. Fortunately, the B7A has a “Pixel Refresher” feature that can recalibrate the screen, which should get rid of any remaining artifacts. See More
The B7A can reproduce a really broad range of colors that are crucial for HDR, which also means it has zero issues with SDR colors. It’s capable of reproducing ~70% of the standard colors for 4K HDR, the Rec. 2020 colorspace. This is one of the highest in the 4K TVs market. It can also display these colors at different brightness levels accurately that conveys much more HDR details than its direct competitors can. See More
The B7A's picture quality is top-of-the-line. It has an OLED panel that gives it infinite contrast ratio, excellent screen uniformity, high peak brightness, wide viewing angle, and great handling of reflections. Thanks to that, it can reproduce blacks perfectly and the uniformity is top-notch - they’re truly dark and even, because the OLED panel has the ability to manipulate pixels individually. Colors really shine and look true-to-life, thanks to the peak brightness levels peak of ~400 nits for SDR & ~700 nits for HDR. The picture quality also doesn't suffer from much deterioration when viewed from any angle because the panel has a really wide viewing angle. It’s also capable of maintaining the same picture quality in bright environments, thanks to its high peak brightness levels and great handling of reflections. See More
The B7A's interface includes ads that can’t be removed - there’s no option to disable it. Ads on this TV can be really annoying when compared to other smart TVs because they're almost everywhere. There are video ads in LG's Content Store, apps menu, and even voice search results. See More
Out of the box, the B7A’s white balance might look slightly off to some viewer, so a brief calibration might be required if you notice it. Fortunately, all the optimal color settings are available on the internet and isn’t hard to find. See More
The B7A comes with LG's Magic Remote, touted for its easy-to-use design. It works similarly to a Nintendo Wii remote where the on-screen cursor follows the remote's movement, making it easy to navigate the UI and select menu items. The remote also has a built-in microphone for the voice command feature, which also supports content searching with voice input. See More
The B7A runs on the webOS smart platform, known for its intuitive and fully customizable UI. It’s built around a Launch Bar that provides quick and easy access to the TV's apps, settings, and inputs. This can be customized and re-organized to the user's liking. See More
The LG B7A runs on the webOS smart platform. It has a great ecosystem of apps, ranging from media streaming services (Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, etc.) to third-party apps. Support for these apps are also first-class with up-to-date features and good performance; for instance, the YouTube app supports 360-degree video playback. See More
The B7A looks good from almost any angle thanks to its OLED panel, making it a great choice if you usually watch the TV with large groups of people. Its viewing angle is wide enough for a group of audience to experience more or less similar picture quality when watching from multiple angles off the center of the screen. The black levels and brightness only starts degrading at ≥75°, which means the picture quality will stay roughly the same no matter which angle the screen is viewed from. See More
Apart from movies, the B7A is great for gaming and sports. Its top-notch picture quality, combined with the features it offers, makes it perform really well across different kinds of use cases. It’s really responsive for gaming - players will have no issues keeping their actions in sync with what’s on the display, and fast-moving objects won’t leave any trails on the screen. That is thanks to the really low input lag of ~20ms and near-perfect pixel response time of ~1.0ms, resulting in virtually no motion blur. It’s also great for watching sports because of the non-existent motion blur, and the panel is really uniform - it has also has no issues with displaying large, same-color objects on screen, like football fields.

The X930E’s picture quality is top-notch. Images are wonderfully reproduced with captivating colors and great detail. The blacks are really deep - it’s about 6000 times darker than the brightest white pixel the screen can produce. This creates a sense of depth as the focus of the picture pops, without any loss in background details. It gets even better when watching in a dark room. You’ll be able to notice subtle details in the picture, and dark scenes will look stunning as the lack of glare allows you to perceive blacks better. On top of that, the colors are really vibrant, even in broad daylight, thanks to its really high peak brightness levels of ~900 nits for SDR & ~1.4k nits for HDR. It can get brighter than most smartphone’s screen under the sun without significant loss in picture quality. See More
The X930E is not suitable for group-watching because of its poor viewing angles. Audience viewing from other angles might not experience the same picture quality as those directly in front of the screen. The picture quality starts deteoriating at just ~10° off the center of the screen with the blacks turning into gray and colors looking dull. See More
The X930E can handle fast-paced or rapidly-moving objects very well. Objects don't leave any trail behind it, thanks to the panel's quick response time. It only requires ~13ms fully change the pixel's color, which eliminates virtually all motion blur. The panel also has a native refresh rate of 120Hz that makes images look smoother. See More
When set in a bright environment, the X930E's picture quality doesn't suffer from much deterioration. It has no issues fighting glare thanks to its really high peak brightness levels of ~900 nits for SDR & ~1.4k nits for HDR. The intensity of glare is also further reduced by the panel's semi-gloss finish. See More
The X930E shines when it comes to HDR content. HDR pictures look true-to-life with stunning highlights and great black details. This is thanks to the high contrast ratio, local dimming, wide color gamut, and really high peak brightness level. The local dimming can make parts of the screen darker when neccessary, giving it a boost in contrast ratio from 5744:1 to 6564:1. This gives the image deeper blacks and greater detail, resulting in brighter HDR highlights and better overall picture quality. Its wide color gamut enables it to reproduce all the colors neccessary for HDR, and the high peak brightness level of ~1.4k nits makes the color really vibrant. See More
The sound quality of X930E’s built-in speakers is decent enough for users that aren't picky about sound details. Dialogue sounds clear, and details aren't drowned out by too much bass or treble. It can get pretty loud at ~95dB, but there's some distortion at higher volumes. See More
