The C9 delivers a wide range of vivid colors and lifelike details that stand out to satisfy the cinephiles in most, if not all, of us. It provides a perfect contrast ratio through rich deep blacks and black color uniformity thanks to the 8.3 billion individually lit pixels in its OLED panel.
Unlike traditional LCDs, OLED panels do not require backlights. This means that when a scene calls for black, OLED will turn off to create true black, while backlit LCD panels will still show a certain degree of lighting. This brings out a high level of detail even in the darkest scenes while watching in a dark room.

This model has 4K Ultra HD that is four times the resolution quality of Full HD that you can enjoy with the wide viewing angle from its OLED panel. Powered by LG’s best 4K processor, the α9 Gen 2 Intelligent Processor greatly enhances images, colors, and motion with its 4-step noise reduction. It handles fast-moving images well, delivering clear and fluid motion with no blurs. It also intelligently upscales content to 4K quality. The C9 also comes with Dolby Vision and Atmos technologies, providing that cinematic experience through enhanced image and sound qualities in every scene.
In addition to delivering an immersive viewing experience, the C9 also provides a unique experience in gaming. Avid gamers will enjoy exceptional details and intense colors in cinematic virtual 5.1 channel surround sound. Its Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) allows for smooth and responsive gameplay with its 1ms response time and low input lag to enjoy real-time action while playing. This model also comes with NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility for improved PC gaming.
The C9 comes with extremely thin borders measuring only a third of an inch (.37”). Its sophisticated and well-built design makes it a perfect centerpiece for your entertainment setup. This TV weighs around 42 lbs. with its stand and can be mounted to a wall with VESA 300 x 200 screws.
In terms of connectivity, this model comes with 4 HDMI 2.1 ports, 3 USB 2.0 connections, and 1 ethernet input. It also comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity for easy access to multiple devices. The LG Magic Remote allows you to control your entertainment system easily with intelligent voice recognition and scroll and click features.
Even though this TV has a larger than average price tag, it’s definitely worth the money with its superb features and quality. It certainly defines what a flagship model should be.
