I think I figured it out. I have an Oppo blu-ray player and am using both HDMI outputs one to the TV the other to my Pioneer AVR. I have to do this because my receiver is not 3d compatible. I'm not watching the 3D version. I switched TV inputs To HDMI2 where I have the blu-ray player connected and that fixed the issue. Need to investigate further as I'm not sure why it didn't look right through the AVrR to the HDMI 1 TV input. My brain hurts.

Different inputs, different black level settings?

With that said, there are movies out there with wrongly mastered black levels. I've encountered them both on cable and Netflix. On a LCD, I would never have noticed, but on the OLED it is really obvious that when a movie or TV show doesn't have a single moment of pure black, something is wrong.

Thought I was seeing dse with my set, while watching lost
It would appear on some cave scenes

Then I watched lost of my panny 65vt30 last night, it also looked like dse

Conclusion: it's the content
And the oled looked sooooo much better than the 3 yr old plasma

And that point can't be emphasized enough. So many times, over the years, I've seen displays blamed for issues that were really in the content. People really need to be certain that any issues they're seeing on their display, are not actually in the content they're watching.

Great point 5x10.

We're you able to confirm it was a pricing error?
Thanks!

I don't know if anyone knows for sure, but it had to be. There is no way they were selling those for $1999 when everyone else still had them around $4k.

Pricing error does not last for days, especially it was not an advertised pricing. And certainly won't happen twice. It was intentional act on either MC or LG's part.

True, I completely forgot it was advertised in the store.

After living with the 9300 for several days and comparing it too the 9800, I have come too the following conclusion.


The 9300 is so much better then the 9800, I would label the 9800 an OLED experiment not ready for prime time compared with the 9300. I would avoid it and if you want a much better display and you need to save money, purchase a 9300 from the sponsor of this site. You will be much better off.

The DSE and uniformity issues that will display them selves in content are not present in the 9300, I also must mention confirmed cases of burn-in.

When I watch my 9800 it does not feel like I am watching an experiment. Glad to read you are enjoying your 9300, but your experience with the 9800 does not match mine. I also love that its launch price last year was $14,999 and I paid $1999!

I've had the 9800 for two months now and watched a lot of content. I have yet to see DSE or uniformity issues with Content. I am sure if I stared at slides I could find something wrong, but again I say with content there are no issues. I disagree completely with your statement that the 9800 is not ready for prime time. I have tried a lot of tvs over the last few years...from Plasma to LED. From Panasonic, to LG (LED), to Sharp, to Samsung... This TV is absolutely the best one I have ever owned.

Yep, had to be, the second time around I went and bought one and the price tag said sales ends 8-31-14, went the next day and the tag was changed. The first time around it lasted 4 days here at the Cleveland MC.

For those that got in on the MC deal, what are some of your build dates?

I'm assuming most (if not all) have later builds.

What's the rule of thumb for setting contrast on these? The typical contrast rules would be turn it up until you can't tell the bars a part or until they are no longer solid white. However on these LG OLEDs, even max contrast seems to be fine? Are ISF calibrators just maxing contrast and reducing the cell light?

What sensor profile is deemed best in HCFR? I find the OLED one results in a greenish picture on my 9300. Not sure about the 9800, i'd assume you'd want the same profile on both. I'm using the newest version if the i1 Display Pro.

I copied some settings from another forum member who calibrated his sets and his contrast was high(98)
Oled light was pretty low, 35 if I remember correctly, he said to raise it to 60 for daytime viewing

Maybe there are clues in these reviews for the 9800 at least until reviews for the 9300 start showing up...

9800 DOA! Plea for help before I return it

I just picked up and set up my 9800. When I tried turning it on I get a quick set of vertical lines on the left side of the panel, I hear a quick "electrical hum", and then the TV turns itself off.

I called LG and they asked me to try unplugging and replugging the TV. No change. They told me to return the set to Best Buy.

Best Buy says I will have to reorder the replacement TV; they are out of stock.

1. Anyone else have this problem?

2. I really need a TV; is worth waiting for another 9800 or should I jump ship and go with a 4k LED?

Thanks

Maybe they will replace with the 9300?
