The wait is finally over: most of LG’s 2022 OLED TVs are available to buy in the US and UK.
If you head to your retailer of choice, you should start seeing LG’s new B2 OLED, C2 OLED, and G2 OLED displays popping up on their physical and virtual store shelves. Unfortunately, those of you with your eyes set on the OLED A2 or OLED Z2 will have to wait a bit longer (via WhatHiFi).
For those of you in the US, the best place to go is Amazon or Walmart, but if you’re lucky you might be able to score a quick deal if you head to the latter.
Indeed, Walmart currently has the 55-inch G2 OLED on sale for just $1,780. That’s $117 cheaper than a similarly sized LG C2 OLED and $416 less than what the LG G2 should cost.
Since this is the only deal on these new TVs that Walmart is running, and the page doesn’t include any signs that it’s a deal, this is likely an error on the part of from Walmart. As such, expect this offer to disappear pretty quickly once it’s noticed.
In the meantime, if you’re in the UK, the best deal we can find right now is at John Lewis. For starters, you can participate in LG’s cashback promotion; until July 31 you can claim up to £300 depending on the model you buy.
On top of that, John Lewis is currently offering new and current My John Lewis members a £100 e-gift card when they purchase a new 2022 LG OLED TV (with the offer extending to other electronics as well) ). You can then spend that money on almost anything at John Lewis, including a new soundbar or something else to further enhance your home theater setup.
If you’re after LG’s 55-inch OLED C2 (priced at £1,899), these deals will effectively save you £300. That’s pretty good for a non-Black Friday deal.
Analysis: LG’s 2022 TVs are the best yet
We had the chance to test out the new LG G2 OLED and LG C2 OLED TVs, and both scored five stars in their respective reviews.
The cheaper LG C2 TV wowed us with its vivid colors and high-contrast images delivered by its new OLED Evo panel technology (only available on the 55-inch-plus model).
Its other incremental improvements over the LG C1 OLED, while less flashy, still impressed us and made the C2 feel like a worthy successor to the best TV of 2021. The only downside was that its surround sound virtual was not as convincing as we would have liked.
The more expensive LG G2 OLED also blew us away with its new OLED Evo panel design. The new heat sink element not present in 2021’s G1-series TV has allowed the G2 to bring new levels of brightness and take OLED beyond what we thought it could go.
You will need to make sure you have space to place this TV on your wall though, as a regular TV stand for the LG G2 TV costs more.
