Some of the new Sony C owners have reported the same local dimming absence for apps but I believe it has already been fixed for streaming on Amazon, etc.

Yes, that's exactly the interpretation I had - my earlier post just wasn't as detailed about the description.

I don't know that I agree edge-lit can't do HDR - Sony says the 930C will be upgradeable to HDR via firmware. And the JS8500 and 9000 are also edge-lit.

Nice find! The product page does refer to LEDs behind the screen, which is promising.

Carlos,

Based on your viewing, how would you compare the 930C to the 950B? I always found fairly small the difference between the 900B and 950B but that was based on a light environment rather...

In addition to what Mark said above, which is spot on re Rec. 709 not reproducing film (for example it gives you an orange red), you must also remember that the set must also correctly display video,...

The ISF calibrations I've had do just that - they calibrate to standards, then tweak until the image looks right in a subjective sense. Numbers don't tell the whole story.

Per CNET this morning,

"CNET contacted those four manufacturers to determine whether their sets would be compatible with HDMI 2.0a. Sony told us the XBR-75X940C and XBR-65X930C (its only 2015...

I agree re certain scenes in new movies, nature, etc. But for everything else, HDR will make little or no difference. It won't impact the news, sports, most tv shows, or older movies, whereas the...

I hear your main theme and agree. I just note that the benefits of HDR are debatable. I've seen it look really cool and also overdone. Certainly it adds to some scenes but even new movies will...

Some of these potential changes, if they ever materialize, would likely have little impact on PQ. More zones and 240hz will really help, the rest not so much. And the tech for more zones has been...

Thus far, have either the AUO panels or the Sharp panels emerged as superior, or are they fairly equivalent?

Thanks so much, Chad. You noted some choppy pans pre-calibration - did that motion handling improve post-calibration? Any other motion issues?

Typical marketing misdirection. Look at how much the prices on the 2014 models dropped. LG simply doesn't want everyone to wait.

I can see normal judder on a plasma set to display at 60 with 24 fps content but it's not a huge issue for me. Whether LG's way of dealing with it is worse or not, I don't know yet.

I've got 3 plasmas, so no dog in the LCD v. OLED fight. We all agree that neither FALD LCD nor OLED (by LG) is yet perfected. None of the plasma faults bother me, except false contouring, which i...
