WHAT A SET!

LG OLED83C1PUA 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ (2021)
LG OLED83C1PUA 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ (2021)

Pros: The picture quality is simply the best! OLED contrast is stunning. The smart remote control works very well, and there is support for lots of streaming Apps The internal speakers are pretty good, and it supports most all latest audio formats.

Cons: Getting it to sync or new LG SP9A Sound Bar has not been easy. It works, then it doesn't. They are supposed to work via one LG remote, and the most simple temporary cable change will break the companionship. I reached out to LG, who indicated that I would be contacted by a specialist, but that never happened. Basically, when they get out of sync, I have to completely reset TV settings and Soundbar settings, then let them find each other again. Luckily, they are working okay now. Also, the TV only supports Optical sound output, or HDMI ARC out, but not both. Should one desire to have the HDMI ARC features, like ATMOS, then no optical that you may want to connect to another audio Amp, or other. The set is a "Beast' to install on a wall bracket, and it is power hungry (i.e. > 350 Watts)

Overall Review: I am happy that I purchased it! Still, today I had to fumble with the Sound settings because the Soundbar was defaulting to a previous "LOUD' volume level, despite changing and powering off. Seem you have to get both remotes and power toggle multiple times to change the startjup volume?

Great small UPS

Pros: I like the option of placing it vertical or horizontal. The display panel easily removes for repositioning, and it includes a dimmer slider so to set the brightness. I purchased this to replace a 500va unit (that only supported 350Watts, as our new 83" OLED TV was too much for it. This UPS handles the TV, soundbar, Sony 100W 5.1 Amp, DirecTV DVR and BluRay w/o any issue.

Overall Review: I recommend this product.
