A digital signal is 1's and 0's...it's either on or off, lol.

Well like the plague said it's either on or off. Hdmi cables sends bits of data and if you have a decent set you shouldn't need anything to further help them. Considering they already have silicon in them, second they have different features built in to lessen interference. You don't need another conductive material between the device and cable.

Wasn't it you who posted that nonsense about the 1500 dollar hdmi cable a while back?

You've heard me rail on about this before: It's one of the reasons that I absolutely insist that the TV shootouts will be of very little value until they are at least single-blinded:
  1. You are not told which models will be present, and
  2. Every bezel is completely hidden with cardboard (or something similar).
The effects here are just too strong.

Aye, just like expectation bias (the equivalent of what you described two posts above.

I would like to see it...the practicality at this point just hasn't been great enough for any of the events. Is #1 really necessary? I'd think the hidden bezel should go far enough in obscuring identity. Also, as it was discussed before, if curved panels are involved, that makes for some expectation challenges (the educated crowd will outright know it's an OLED or edgelit LCD, and viewing angle and black level performance will seal the deal).

If Vegas and I agree on something you know you're in the wrong.

Haha, no insult meant Vegas, truce

No problem, if we all had the same opinions, there would be no reason for this Forum. I have learned things in the heat of disagreement and that is what this forum is for, sharing and learning from others.

If this stuff was JUST snake oil then I wouldn't waste my time coming on this forum and telling you all about it!

Some of this stuff on the market is NOT snake oil!
You are making my afternoon, your defense of your point of view is hilarious. My own brother swears expensive HDMI cables make a HUGE difference with audio, I do not believe him either.

Vin, the reason I think that #1 is necessary is because it makes it ever less likely that someone will say to themselves "hmm....this is a semi-matte screen, and only two of the screens offered in the list have it like this", (and all other similar reactions). If they go in truly blind, (and even have duplicates of a couple models), then people wouldn't be able to mentally multiple-choice the options out in their heads.

It's a valid point. I hadn't thought of that not so insignificant detail.

Only issue is, it's about 50 minutes away and all work is done at the store
I too also like the quick speed of the apps/computer, much better than my 2011 and 2012 panny plasmas
Well if you crack the screen the unit is toast.......especially for $1999.

I watched another lb movie and went back to blu ray screen
I could see the faint line at the top, my wife couldn't(I'll try to get a pic next time)
I'm not sure if it's true ir, it's almost like a line that is ghosting, as the line appears to be brighter than the area on top or bottom of it

I turned the tv off, took a shower, came back and turned it back on, it was still on the blue blu ray screen and I couldn't see the line any more
I almost wonder if it's just my eyes
I had some ir on my plasma(mainly Huds and kill streaks on call of duty) and this isn't anywhere near the same thing as I could see the ir amongst most all colors or content(if I really focused)

I think you may just be switching content before it becomes too extreme. The times I have to wash it away for longer than the duration of what I watched is when it's multiple movies in succession.

Ask and ye shall receive...

http://www.oled-info.com/lg-launches...77-oled-tvs-uk

Considering that the *55* launched at 15, then 10 and was 1080P, LG seems to be gouging a little less on the 65 inch 4k, and that's assuming that they launch it here at 10 grand US. It's entirely possible, and I've seen it where a company releases a product in the US and the UK at similar price-points despite the exchange rate.

Edit: Just checked and the UK version of the 55EA9800 debuted at GBP 8000, which is in line with the original 15k US price-point, but 10K for 65 inches and 4K is still not terrible for early adopters, and within a year we might be having this same discussion again.

Man, progress in TV technology is incredible. 18 months ago I was considering buying a Philips Designline, 12 months ago I was so tempted to get a 4k from Sony, then 6 months ago the LG 55" OLED finally made me cave in.

At each moment the TV I was looking at seemed like the hotness. Now (soon) we'll have 65" 4k OLEDs. Crazy.

Actually I think it's just 2013 that that seemed incredible, because it brought so many competing technologies to the table. Most displays have been steadily downgrading for years prior, or at the very least making marginal progress. If you bought an awesome tv in 2008 you would probably not be wowed by any recent displays save for OLED or when watching native 4k content.

6 hours of straight lb movie right from the box(save the blue screen while ejecting and loading a new DVD)
And I realized that I was using standard mode, which out of the box, is 80 oled light and 100 contrast! Yikes

Maybe 65" 4k oled next year when the price is little lower ... and dare i hope for 4k bd will ever come..
Hd tv test reported banding and ir on the 77" that was shown

I haven't the slightest clue why Vinnie and I mysteriously keep getting panels that exhibit IR then.

I'm not saying you didn't, I just don't know why I haven't
But, I haven't run any gray slides looking for it either, it might be there under the slides(I need to format my USB stick as my comp isn't recognizing it, to get slides to the tv)
vaktmestern's Avatar vaktmestern 09:12 AM 06-27-2014
I havent run a full letterbar movie yet but been running the loop on wow disc , that has 2 short letterbar clips to ease it in. After calibration ill pass 500/600 hours n start to go longer n longer with letterbae movies like limey from avf did on his oled.

I wasn't accusing you of saying I didn't, nor did I mean that as sarcasm. I'm being completely serious; I don't get the reason for such disparity among panels, especially those clearly manufactured within the same timeframe.

Where can I read on Limey?

2.5mm hard drive bays for tv's would be a solid idea. Just keep your whole movie collection and all your porn **cough, cough** right inside the television.
