LG QNED85 65-inch 4K Smart QNED TV

LG’s OLED panels have long ruled the TV roost, but its more accessible QNED technology shouldn’t be overlooked. Packing Quantum Dot NanoCell technology that delivers rich and accurate colour in pin-sharp 4K, the LG QNED85 is no slouch when it comes to picture quality. In fact, LG goes straight up science fiction with its TV tech, as intelligent lighting control uses deep-learning algorithms to map and send luminance information to over one hundred MiniLED dimming zones, delivering darker blacks and a broader range of brightness levels that remain elusive for conventional edge-lit TVs. Long story short, the QNED85 is one hell of a TV that won’t break the bank. – AUD$2,876
