Without motion smoothing it shows worse 1080 24 judder than the ZT. I do like the 5 inches extra size and the ability to look better in a bright room. So I think I'll be stupid and keep it, even though the ZT is still a great set. I am a new tech junkie, and it's been almost 3 years..lol

So that said I think I'll sell the ZT. Purchased new from Amazon Sept 20, 2013. Calibrated by ChadB about 3 weeks later. It shows about 1400 hours on the clock, has never been cracked open for repairs, no logo burn in due to me being anal about it, and is in perfect shape with a square trade warranty good till late September 2017. To be honest though not hearing great things about Square Trade. Anyone interested? I'm thinking around 1500 is fair. It's in Indianapolis, IN. Local pickup only.
I've considered doing what you did a few times and I just can't bring myself to do it. I know Oled pushes the envelope a little further, but I'm too satisfied with my ZT. I looked at the C6 and E6. Where did you purchase your Oled from?

Bought it at Best Buy when they were on sale last week. Been running it side by side with the ZT. It's definitely superior to the ZT overall. In normal lighting it's brighter and holds black better. In a dark room, the absolute black is striking. I notched the tint control to plus 4 green and the colors are incredibly close to matching the calibrated ZT. The LG requires a bit of motion smoothing though. Film judder is more noticeable on it, partly due to it being bigger. I'm glad to know there is now a worthy successor to our plasma, as I find LCD sets have way too many issues for my taste. The OLED is more like a closer to perfect plasma. Now if they actually hold up over time.

Good to hear you are enjoying it so far! I bet it is very impressive in a dark room.

Yes, I had the 65" ZT60 so I already went through the size shock. The motion might take some tinkering from one source to the next, but you can get a pretty equitable motion performance with a little effort. The zero blacks (no more phosphor glow), lower power consumption (and subsequent diminished room heating, which is important in the desert), and IR resistance are heavenly. The only caveat on my set is a slight uniformity anomaly that puts it one step below the ZT60. As Superman23 has stated, though, even his ZT60 has its own patch of DSE, so the stars have to be aligned just right to get that (near) perfect panel.

Very true Video! Sometimes it's like a crap shoot getting that perfect screen that has a 100% uniformity! LOL! I was upset about it for a while but now I'm kinda like..........oh well eventually I'm going to get an OLED anyways.

I have a ZT60 that I purchased used in November 2014 complete in box. Compared to the LG OLED how much better is it? They seem very expensive to purchase the OLED. When comparing these 2 side by side is there a major difference (WOW factor)?

Yes, zero blacks give you an image with a more 3-dimensional look. It makes for a more striking image when you have both dark and brighter content on screen It is very expensive (a G6, so you can save a bundle with a B6), but I am hoping to get 5 years of satisfaction out of it. I didn't compare this one side-by-side with a ZT60 but did so with an 55EA9800 (first LG OLED) in 2014, and the contrast differences were even apparent then.
