The LG 15EL9500 is a tiny OLED. One of the OLED problems has always been making them in bigger sizes.

Plasma and CRT have better viewing angle than OLED.

For eg 8mile13's link to this article talks about black crush and white clipping. That is not an OLED issue. That is a Sony issue

There was one comment which pointed out that the PVM was not a grade one monitor so its probably a problem with the cheaper versions, kind a like buying a $500 Panasonic Plasma instead of a $3000 Pioneer Plasma

Looks like I should replace AVS with hdguru in my home page

We have been talking about LG 55" OLED since last week and speculating about it since October in the OLED thread. Just saying.

IMHO frame interpolation doesn't work and I doubt it ever will be sophisticated enough to satisfy the most demanding enthusiasts (like me).

I hope they can make motion better with BFI. On the other hand, OLED displays are dimmer to begin with (compared against LCD/LED) and it's not entirely sure whether they're equipped with APL circuits to cut down energy consumption and heat production. And like we already know, BFI will reduce the brightness.

I suspect that the stacked WOLED arrangement, which prevents light loss, will produce greater brightness than previous OLED designs.

Led advantages
Gets very bright
No abl
LED disadvantages.
Poor blacks.
Poor contrast
Viewing angles poor
Blooming
Uniformity
I can carry on all day.

Oled samsung advantages.
Gets just as bright
Abl is not a issue
Infinite contrast
Infinite blacks.
Pencil thin
No blooming
No uniformity issues
Reference level picture

I mentioned samsung oled because lg oled using wrgb is weak and has lots of problems when compared to true rgb samsung.

That's all well in good except that apparently Samsung (or anyone else for that matter) cannot produce rgb OLED for TV size displays in any way that would be remotely cost competitive with wRGB oled, let alone LCD. Otherwise...perhaps they would be manufacturing them.


I am certainly not convinced that wRGB has any inherent disadvantages over RGB. This is not to say that LGs current sets are not without their flaws.

That's just an ignorant and ridiculous statement. You obviously know nothing about OLED tech.

Didn't bother to read the thread just the title.

Went from Samsung js9500 HDR 4k led TV to LG ec9300 1080p oled.

Best decision of my life.

You can put lipstick on a pig all you want but at the end of the day an LCD is still going to be an LCD. Forbidden from my home forever.

Top LCD to bottom oled and the oled is still better. If you haven't used them both in your home then you can't understand.

Even **** Comcast football feeds look incredibly better on the oled. The contrast ratio is just worth so much more. The viewing angles are worth so much more too

IMO if you value resolution and "HDR" over contrast ratio and viewing angle... Then... Well... You're dumb, to put it lightly.

Do you think OLED will be just as good or if not better than Plasmas?

I hate LCD for movies and especially sport, I hope one day the OLED is just as good as the Plasmas

Let's put it this way, there are really only two things that OLED currently can't do as well as plasma:


1. Near-black uniformity
2. Low-framerate motion clarity


The first is thought to just be a yields and panel quality-control issue while the second is purely because LG's implementation lacks black-frame insertion (possibly due to brightness reasons, which itself would get better with newer models - this would explain why something like the Oculus Rift's OLED display can support black-frame insertion since it blocks out ambient lighting)

As far as I know all OLEDs have a glossy screen vs there are still some fairly matte LCDs which may help lower reflections in bright rooms.

"Lighten UP", Alex!


Oooopsss, I forgot You got rid of your JS9500 which could lighten up and bought the OLED which can't lighten up,


Sorry Bout that!

Ironic, Gary, considering the average brightness of the JS9500 is 380 nit whereas the EG9600 is 417 nit.
