The judges have granted the 2022 TV Shootout© award for Best 8K Home Theater TV (SDR Reference Mode) to LG OLED88Z2PUA.
SDR, or Standard Dynamic Range, is currently the standard format for home video and cinema displays. When testing for this Reference Mode setting, the judges prevented any outside light from entering the viewing space, essentially blacking out the room. Doing so made for a very theatrical experience, with the TVs on display shining brightly in the dark room.
After inspections of multiple video samples in this setting, the judges voted and decided that the LG OLED88Z2PUA is the best of today’s 8K TV selection for this specific mode. Consumers interested in creating a strong 8K home theater experience in a dark room should be very interested in the LG OLED88Z2PUA, although it would be hard to go wrong with any of the televisions on display today.
