Maybe, but you need to consider that the LG that makes the panels isn't the same LG that makes the TVs (although there's some common ownership). So it's possible that both Sony and LG are getting the...

How would lowering the maximum nits allow LCDs in that couldn't display precise blacks?

Probably true, but what's strange is South Korea doesn't make any decent audio equipment.

480 is a 1990s technology. No UHD TVs display 480 well. Time to upgrade your cable service.

Alleged? These are well known issues. And gamma adjustments can help, but at the expense of raising overall black levels.

You called me crazy for pointing the black crush issue out in the past....

If this TV doesn't have a bad image (it looks good to me), this could be a game changer. In addition to be being good in of itself, it might force Sony/Samsung to lower their insane prices of their...

Not to mention overcoming a couple of current OLED weaknesses...
- Peak brightness
- Black crush

But, like you said, getting a large OLED like TV for a reasonable cost is the biggest thing.

The majority of receivers can not do 7.1.4 with or without an external amp. Only higher end models can.

I would assume you need a new panel and the cost is likely as much as a new TV. Plus you may replace the panel and find that there are other issues. I wouldn't bother trying to fix it.

My TV is now very stable so I would prefer they not do an upgrade. I upgraded my phone from lollipop to marshmallow and I couldn't tell the difference.

The Samsung looks better to me.

You went from 46" to 55", so all things being equal, the 46" will have a smaller surface area per unit of content when showing 1080. It will look better because...

Mark,

That was an awesome article. OLED and LCD both have their strengths and weaknesses. No technology is clearly better than another. I prefer LCD mainly because you can buy a huge screen at a...

I have a 940c and a couple of panny plasma's. The 940c blows my plasma's away. The ZD9 looks better than my 940c.

If you're OK with a 65" or smaller, get the 2016 OLED. If you want 75", I would wait until the 75ZD9 price drops. I would guess after christmas, it will be < $6k. No way would I get a 65ZD9 over OLED...

If you're happy with your TV, don't do the update. It's unlikely the update will cause a problem, but it's possible.

Not true. OLEDs have a problem showing colors just above absolute black. So they crush the blacks to absolute black. It's done intentionally. The OLEDs are less accurate than LCDs in these cases.
