Just downloaded, not sure what it does. Does anybody have the 2015 OLED's as well? I'd like to know how the picture quality compares.

They are still selling this TV new here in Brazil, for about 1700 USD.
The model # is 55EA9850.

I am wondering what I would be missing, in terms of picture quality, compared to the EG9100.

Any views?

20,000 hours to half brightness. Do the math.

Well mine was an ex shop demo and had been on in the shop for a good 6 months (5 year warranty) and I've now owned the TV for two years. There's no noticeable dimming to my eyes and it is still by far the best technology purchase I have ever made.

Every visitor I have comments on it and anyone that watches a film on it is blown away. Typical comments include wow so that's what 4k looks like haha.

That may be, but that doesn't mean that the curve doesn't drop off steeply at the beginning.

Thought #AYA: Porn gives young people an unhealthy and unrealistic idea of how quickly a plumber will come to your house.

It may well do. But it's plenty bright enough for use in the day at 100 or at night at 50. If it does suddenly get worse I've still got 3 years left on my warranty.

I hope he is not confused with ABL when you have a full screen of bright patches, the screen dim itself automatically.

Has anyone owned this TV for a long period of time and can comment on it's reliability? I'm hesitant to buy LG again after such a crappy experience with my 42LS4700, which had backlighting problems

Read literally 2 posts back.

I've got a gen one ex shop demo and it's perfect.

Did a dead sub pixle count the other day and no new ones at all.

How about image retention or burn-in? Anyone noticing any station logos or letterbox bars being visible on solid-colored backgrounds? We know this happened on store displays but curious about normal users experience after using it for a few years.

Nothing for me and I have put it through the test with many many hours of call of duty, fallout 4, and the witcher 3 which all have static images on the screen


Also, here's a nice video on how the tv has performed with close to 3k hours

Wish my Samsung plasma held up as well regarding IR after only one year. Those cable station logos are a major pain.

This OLED model was engineered for an original price point of $15K. Let's hope the cheaper (and 4K) OLED models that followed are going to perform equally well in the long run.

Both my Panasonic plasmas have the ID channel logo burned in the lower right hand corner and I can see it in content

I have not looked on dark gray slides to truly see if this oled has burn in but I have not seen it with content and have looked for it, specifically the HUD on call of duty

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I didn't have too much time to scroll through the history. I have a netflix image that seems to have burned in. I only see it when there is a red or orange background very faintly. Is there a way to remove this or am i stuck?

Thanks

My 3-year warranty ends next year. I was offered an extension for $637.02 (tax included) for 3 more years. This is the LG-bought plan managed by Service Net Warranty. I just hit 5000 hours today...decisions, decisions.

That seems a long way towards a new OLED TV, think I would save the money and if the 9800 fails buy a new model and they are improving year on year and getting cheaper also.

LG 55EC930V, Tag McLaren AV192R, Tag McLaren 100x5R, Linn Akurate 242 MK3, Katan & Trikan Loudspeakers, B&W PV1 Subwoofer, Tag McLaren DVD32R, Oppo BDP-103, Sky+HD RA upgraded, Lumagen Mini3D, Philips Pronto TSU9600, Chord Signature Tuned Array Cables, IsoTek Power, Spectral Stand.

Yea, I have a new one in the great room already. This one's in the bedroom. Given it's first generation, I am half-expecting it to fail or start showing visible signs of aging by then.
