With OLED still very much ruling the roost in LG's stable, high-end LCD TVs like this 65-inch 65SM8600PLA are in danger of being overlooked. And while OLEDs are often excellent, we've found plenty of Best Buy backlit TVs so far in 2019. Is the 8600 another one of those, or are you better off with an OLED?
