What experts liked
Because it's an OLED TV, the E7 has the best off-axis viewing angles, meaning you don't have to sit dead center in front of the TV to appreciate its rich colors and deep blacks.

The TV’s panel appears to float thanks to virtually invisible edges, and the TV’s integrated soundbar blends seamlessly with its stand.

Extra luminance also helps the E7 deliver a wider volume of colour than its predecessors, which makes the HDR picture look more balanced as well as, again, more realistic.

This model offers better-than-ever color performance, some of the best peak brightness capacity of the entire OLED lineup since they first came out in 2014 and typically perfect motion handling capability as well.

Color accuracy was excellent, so colors, especially flesh tones, looked very natural and lifelike.
- Consumer Reports
The OLED65E7P is ready for Dolby Vision, the primary competitor to HDR10 (the latter exclusive to all Ultra HD Blu-rays as of mid-2017).

LG OLED E7 comes with the number of LG’s most advanced technology which makes its performance and picture quality is really excellent.

The remote control is excellent, too, combining the motion-sensing pointer skills of LG’s existing Magic Remotes with a full suite of buttons in a smart and ergonomically sound size and shape.

What experts didn't like
However, LG does finally have some competition from Sony's own A1E OLED TV, which beats the E7 on brightness and revealing details in shadows.

Let us be clear here: The C7 offers the same picture quality and overall user experience as the more expensive E7.

Elsewhere, skin tones can suddenly become rather monotone and mannequin-like during dark sequences, presumably due to issues with resolving fine colour differences at certain colour ‘temperatures’.

Oddly as well, the E7, despite its premium status and higher price doesn’t manage quite the high HDR peak brightness levels as its much cheaper cousin the LG OLED B7 2017 model, which is LG’s cheapest TV with organic light emitting diode technology for 2017.

On full dark-gray field test patterns (I used 5 percent), there were dark vertical streaks on the screen.

On other hand, the only major drawback of LG OLED E7 is about its expensive price.

Backlit LCD rivals still go brighter. Other LG OLEDs are claimed to offer the same picture for less
