I'm hoping it includes a central processor upgrade to provide more power for doing higher bitrate decoding.
Hey thanks for the warm welcome..Prof. Bill Ball.
I hear yeah, I lost houses, 401K and engagement rings in the 911 and .COM erra. haha I love graphic arts, advertising, marketing and do restoration for a living today in Savannah, Georgia. You know marketing my own business...in survival of the fittest.
LG really should give us the True 4K Engine Pro upgrade or something, along with the $400 HDMI 2.0 or an upgrade package of $500 with extra goodies. I was studying all the LG tv's and really liked their 55" 4K's. But...I went to Best Buy and thought anything 55" was way to small. haha Spending the extra dough, for 10 more inches..."Bigger, Bigger, Better" is way more superior, even if have to eat mac and cheese for 6 months. Lol
But...the True 4K Engine Pro vs. True 4K Engine upscale is lots of marketing hype and confusing to the consumer. They say...it up-scales blu rays to 4K quality, but really the PRO is just another newer version of the upscale processor. Really this 4K stuff, makes everything look like a plastic or SOAP Opera filming. So, I opted for the less shiney, plastic feel.....less SOAP OPERA feel. Lol That seems what the 65LA9650 should deliver with out the True 4K Engine Pro. The new REAL 3D DIGITAL Transformer Movie was great, with more gainy effects. When saw it on a Samsung, 4K huge TV @ Best BUY....it was way to clear, to crisp and looked like some of the super high res animations, for video games on STEAM. Just saying....to shiny, to crisp is not the big enchilado Amigo. I think...the 65LA9650 should do everyone just fine and the best out there....for the price.
Just relax with chips and salsa and Enjoy the SHOW! haha
Best Buy had a huge Sony display, with 80 inch tv and I had them play their upscaling deal, off a Blu Ray file....and it just seemed, like your were filming with a SONY CAM and way to crisp and clear. Which made the actors, look like their onstage with actors from GLEE. I think a lil grainy effect, is a lil better and don't really need the True 4K Engine Pro GLEE effects. Lol
Baaah Hum Bug... haha
