Just an update, it's been a year since I bought this TV
Aprox 1900 hours on it
Still the 5 stuck blue sub pixels
Gray uniformity is still about the same, right side is darker and the control box outline is still darker(although it seems to have lightened up a tad)

Main issue I still have with this tv is finding enough good stuff to watch on it

How do I find out how many hours are on the TV now?

Due to a job change, I have to sell my beloved 55ea9800 TV, so I want to gather any information potential buyers might want. What else would they want to know and how would I get it?

Also, if it's OK to ask, any consensus on an asking price? I'll list the TV in the classifieds section of AVS Forums soon.

In the menu under "support" (blue circle question mark icon) Select the heading "Product/Service Info."
"Used Time" shows the number of hours.
(They may have changed this in newer firmware.)

Uniqueness of the design is a consideration over the second gen 9300. I think the build quality is solid with the carbon fiber back. THX certified plus the THX setting. When it was launched the price was $15,000. Even though it's first gen it is potentially a better panel.

Had the TV since October 2014 ex display with a November 2013 build date. No dead pixels no burn in. The is the first thing I've ever bought that still impresses me every time I use it!

I use it a lot for gaming and it makes everything look phenomenal.

The whole lg oled tvs are plagued with problems. The only oled out there which is a masterpiece is the samsung s9c.
No tv is touching that.

My LG Oled is fantastic. Not sure what problems the previous poster is referring too, but I would not exchange my Oled for anything currently on the market.

Sort of, and I'm still "rooting" for them. But is it still a masterpiece if they can't build it? <----That's one possible definition of a non-product. They have no way to produce these things in volume at 2K resolution. And 4K would certainly complicate matters further.

What do you call a Harley that doesn't leak oil?
Out of oil.

Like I said, despite its "flaws", my main issue is finding TV I want to watch

I have the 55EA9850 and I did not manage to get the PLEX app. I've read that the 9800 is compatible with it, and the 9850 is pretty much the same TV. Appreciate any help.

I've owned a Sammy PN64E8000 and now the 55EA9850. Points for me:

- 64 is much bigger than 55. And bigger is better in most cases with similar image quality.
- I did not put them side by side (my plasma died), but OLED image is better than plasma in general.
- Samsung internal processing seems to me better than LG's, less judder, less soap opera effects risk etc.
- Plasma is dead, but...

If you think you can get parts replacements in the near future (I mean, if you are sure you'll be getting assistance after warranty - in my case my 3 years old display panel had to be replaced for the same price of a new TV...), I would still go with Plasma. It's bigger and almost as good IQ with better processing.

That's been my experience/opinion anyway.

PS: FYI, so you can put my opinion into context, I replaced an old Pana plasama 50" for the OLED, and am quite happy. And replaced my Sammy 64 for Sammy UN78HU9000 and, apart from off-axis viewing (which is trounced by Plasma and OLED, but I watch mostly frontal anyway) find the image almost if not as good and don't regret changing from the plasma to the LED: as I said, it is way bigger, with almost as good IQ. And I had always been a staunch critic of LCD/LED for films.

I bought mine for a bit less quite some time ago. Since then, the CDN dollar has dropped in value considerably, but that model has aged and most unknowing consumers will prefer to buy the latest model. I, however, think the build of the 9700 is better (carbon fibre, beautiful acrylic base with no speakers, etc..) than the newer model with a fantastic picture. At best, it sold for about $2,000 US when they were being cleared out months ago. I suggest checking the hrs used on the unit and the picture quality (esp for dead pixels) before purchasing. Hope this helps...

My first ever oled tv was the lg ea980. I replaced it because my zt got screen burn, even back then i felt the zt colours were more accurate and clearly better motion and gradation of colours.
Then comes along samsung s9C and blows every oled out. It has better colour better motion better colour gradation. So much more balanced. No uneven brightness, no banding, no tinting, no constant flickering judder.
Still lg oled is better than any led.

Really doubt any slight differences in motion or dark scale uniformity make much a difference when your comparing these two infinite contrast ratio tvs

My LG is fantastic. I have not seen the samsung, but can honestly say my OLED is not perfect, but is the best TV I have seen, including SUHD. You can not even find a samsung oled.

I agree the lg oled is better than the SUHD and no tv is perfect but the S9C is the closest to perfection I've come across. And when compared to lg oled it is marginally better but very hard to find -many people will never get the chance to see one in action.
