As dougri pointed out, it's primarily a problem for difficult material with high-contrast. Think bright objects on a dark background. The bright object 'leaks' through the filter in such cases and...

I know you've been absent from the boards so maybe you didn't know that LG really cracked down on exchanges for near-black issues. Too many EF9500 owners...

Does this device output movies at proper 23.976 frames per second or is it the typical 59.94 (or even worse 60.00)? One will give you smooth camera pans, the other will produce 3:2 judder.

I never cared for 3D and saw nothing on the OLEDs to change my mind. I will gladly give it up for 2017 if it means lower prices or better 2D brightness. Passive OLEDs still suffer from crosstalk and...

All the other models are essentially "mass produced" products. At current pricing, this model is probably a much more limited release and may receive a bit more QC during assembly. I also suspect...

That looks like the IMAX re-release since your image is full frame.

Let's see. 3 years of zero motion resolution improvement on any of LG's OLEDs. Even longer with their LCDs. It's just not a priority for them. If you look at their marketing materials you see...

LG's LCDs don't have any explicit backlight strobing feature. I don't think they believe it's a useful feature or don't like the flicker introduced. It is highly unlikely they will ever release a...

65" or 55" screen size? You should definitely let it do at least 2-3 compensation cycles before judging the uniformity.
