The LG C3 OLED is one of the best OLED TVs you can buy. In our LG OLED C3 review, we highlighted its perfect blacks, stunning contrast and rich, accurate colors. It's also great for gaming thanks to its Game Optimizer features and 120Hz refresh rate. Add in Dolby Vision/HDR 10/HLG support, four HDMI 2.1 ports, built-in Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant/Apple HomeKit support, and LG's Magic Remote and it's no wonder we awarded it an Editor's Choice.

The LG C3 OLED is the mid-tier option in LG's 2023 OLED TV lineup. It's cheaper than competitors like the Sony Bravia XR A95K OLED, but still offers incredible performance.

When we tested the TV out in our LG C3 OLED review, this set delivered incredible picture quality, awesome colors and stunning brightness. We measured a peak brightness of 820 nits, a Delta-E score of 1.3908 and 98.98% coverage of the UHDA-P3 color gamut. These aren't the best results you can get from an OLED TV nowadays, but considering the LG C3 OLED's price, these numbers are impressive.

The LG C3 OLED is also a great gaming TV. It's kitted out with a 120Hz refresh rate, HDMI 2.1 support, VRR, ALLM, AMD FreeSync Premium and has Nvidia G-Sync compatibility. Plus, LG's awesome Game Optimizer menu now includes a Boost function that improves the TV's latency. The LG C3 OLED had a lag time of 12.9ms with the Boost function turned off, but with it activated the lag time dropped to 9.1ms. That's one of the best results we've ever seen from any TV.

The LG C3 OLED's audio capabilities are pretty good, but not the best out there. It sounds fine for TV and movies, but audiophiles will probably want to add one of the best soundbars. Especially since this TV uses Wow Orchestra, a feature that pairs the soundbar with the TV's built-in speakers for even stronger sound.

The LG C3 OLED is a seriously awesome TV, and now's a great time to pick one up thanks to this $500 discount. For more options, check out our Prime Day TV deals coverage.
