According to the first owner, it seems the EC9300 was not tested with the final firmware ? So the performance could be now much better than in the shootout.
Was TruMotion set to 0/0 at the LG OLED TV? That improves motion to 600 lines without soapeffect.
The Plasma is not bright enough to match an OLED TV in daylight viewing. So for me still no contest for the LG and even in dark rooms the LG has the best black level and contrast. The software bugs can be fixed with an update and the issues posted are more software than hardware related. Only with OLED you get the best of both worlds and with the new EC-Series it´s getting cheaper now.
