Many years ago, our mothers or grandmothers always did the homemade pasta, a delicacy that combines perfectly with fish, meat, and vegetables.

As every year, the CES (Consumer Electronics Show), which, as you know, is one of the most important consumer electronics fairs, was the “kick-off” of the new TV ranges for 2018 from the main manufacturers. At the beginning of January, during the celebration of the event, we knew what brands are going to offer us this year, but it is now when their new TVs are coming to stores, and therefore, when we can know their prices.
The range of options available to us today is, fortunately, very broad. Many manufacturers, such as LG, Sony or Panasonic, among others, have two well differentiated ranges: one with OLED panels and the other with LCD solutions and LED backlighting. The brand that has remained outside of OLED, and which seems to be focusing its attention in the medium term on MicroLED technology, is Samsung, which hopes to stand up to the OLED and LCD LED solutions of its competitors with its QLED televisions. » Read more

At the end of last year we had the opportunity to analyze one of the OLED TVs that we most wanted to put “eyes on”: the 55-inch version of the LG C7 family. The reason why we were initially struck by this television was not the possibility of accessing the image quality of an OLED panel model for a price that, without being a bargain at all, was reasonable and more competitive than habitual. After our tests our initial expectations were confirmed: the models of the C7 range had a great price / performance ratio.
With this precedent it is understandable that we have not missed the opportunity to analyze in depth one of the models of the C8 family, which, as you can guess, is the successor of the C7 range in the LG portfolio for 2018. Of course, this time the model that has made us LG is the 77-inch, identical to those of 55 and 65 inches, but with significantly larger dimensions, as expected due to the increase in the diagonal of your panel. The challenge that faces this TV is to show us if the C8 family has a cost / performance ratio as attractive as the C7 range we tested last year. We suggest you continue reading and find out together. » Read more
