LG 55EC9300 55" OLED Owners Thread

My 9300 is in Las Vegas and will be here between 11am and 2pm. I will post photos starting with the look of the new box. I hope to have great things to say about this new OLED.

A true work of art has landed in my living room

Nope, my 9800 was returned horrible uniformity issues. This is the number one item I will be interested to see if it is better. I would recommend those who are considering an LG OLED consider that the 9300 is also wall mountable. May not be an issue today but it might be something you wish you had if you ever move into a bedroom.

Correct, some people are bothered by different things. Uniformity is my number one issue with the 9800, others may not be bothered. Each opinion is different, nobody's opinion is right or wrong on this forum. I was an LCD XBR8 owner for 6 years and it took OLED b4 I considered anything but my XBR

BREAKING NEWS! There are no Bad sub-pixels on my new 9300, no as in ZERO Bad sub-pixels. This is an absolute first and GREAT News

Another bit of Info, the new LG OLED is made in Mexico no longer being manufactured in Korea.

Sound Quality, night and day better than the 9800. Sound bar is best but much better out of the box sound.

Congrats Vegas oled! I am really considering this tv. I have the Panasonic 55VT60. Though I really love the picture quality of a plasma I do wish sometimes they could be a little brighter. Please post pics when you a have a chance. I'll make a decision when b-ball season starts.

Still playing with settings:
Standard is not very good and needs too be adjusted, Cinema seems much better and is adjustable. Looks like no banding in grey scale but color shift in standard mode that is not present in Cinema. The picture looks a little more like the Samsung OLED and a little less like the 9800 to me but it's still early.

Good uniformity all sub pixels up and firing, my early evaluation is a winner. I wish D-Nice lived in Las Vegas I would love to have an expert fine tune everything.

Is there any difference in picture quality? Did you have any problem with banding in your 9800?

Every single 9800 had some uniformity issues (most minor) the 9300 has none. It has a color shift (which d-nice) stated can be calibrated to remove in standard mode that goes away in cinema. The darker shades are what I am referring too, some only had as yours slight edge, others had many more across the screen.

They are both OLED's and look great. I am a fan of the 9300 because it has all if it's sub-pixels firing and the uniformity seems to be addressed (accept what I described above). The picture looks a little more laid back like the Samsung, a little more plasma like too me a little less LCD.

The real deal is zero bad Sub-pixels, this is a an absolute first. No doubt If I was buying I would purchase a 9300.

they always seemed to be on the right hand side of the 9800, every single pic i have seen
yeah, i do remember dnice saying that the 9300 has green and red uniformity issues on content, which i would think would be more important than grayscale on a slide

looking forward to pics

I will note that I had to do a software update and the menu does let me turn off all noise reduction filters.

Yes, as described above but you can calibrate to remove and not visible in cinema mode. What was on the 9800 is not something that can be calibrated too remove And once your sub-pixels are dead, they are not coming back.

congrats on getting one without dead subs, they werent so lucky at the showdown
i also looked through d-nice's posts, he said gray scale banding can be calibrated out, but nothing about the green/red uniformity

also, are all of the same calibration options there in the settings menu?
thanks

One of the patents LG has spoken of is the technology to restore bad sub pixels. I'm thinking they do that as a step after manufacturing. This is one of the steps they apparently do to improve yields.

I don't want to make you feel uneasy but dead pixel can come up later too mostly in the first 2 weeks later is very unusual at least this was the case with LCD.

can you do some motion test and check if this screen can show 4:4:4 RGB input without subsampling?

can't wait to see better and better OLED screens!

and everything you said so far sounds awesome!

My last 9800 was the absolute worst, it had horrible line across the screen. Most are like 5x10 described one side (usually both) but usually one side darker then the other.

Every year we should see slight improvements, I would say the 9300 is a little more than slight. If I was a purchaser today (as I am), I would no doubt purchase the 9300. It has every advantage of a year of R&D.

The setup menu and operating system is MUCH better than the 9800, everything is very fast and smooth.
