I have a customer waiting for me in Vegas. If he and both of you want to schedule something in a month, I'd love to make the trip.

There may be some room in the rear half of the room. I like your suggestion of it not having to be as big because a third one of the same size might not go over too well.

By the way, this isn't...

I still have all the original non averaged measurements, so I could remake all the graphs. I may do that, though I have some time constraints to deal with. I had originally used the variable...

I wouldn't recommend using the CMS at all. It has the effect with all colors, though it's far more noticeable on red. The controls seem to effect only a narrow, very sharply defined portion of the...

Yeah, the HDMI cable won't change the picture. They should be ashamed of themselves for suggesting that.

Often on these sets the sharpness is turned too high, which exaggerates graininess; and...

That's distressing to hear, but that's a good method for recalibrating the brightness.

Just want to make sure I understand- you had to turn the brightness in the Smart Hub down by five clicks,...

Panasonic 65" OLED prototype @ CES

BTW, regarding the broken CMS in the LGs... The color gamut accuracy is fairly good even without those controls. I measured saturation sweeps at 25,50,75, and 100% level along with color checker and...

Right about cms/gamut. It controls a very narrow and sharply defined slice of the color gamut and will cause nothing but trouble.

Official OWNERS thread for 2014 OLED LG 55ec9300 Part II

Bt1886 would be power 2.4 on this display, I don't think that would be optimal.
I calibrated the last one to power law 2.27 and it looked wonderful.
I definitely prefer power law between 2.2 and...

I'd go with the 6010 myself. It's blacks, though not as low as the 9th generation Kuros, are still quite good, and will probably be darker and more stable than the Samsung's. The 6010 still looks...
