My LG OLED destroys not only movies, but also TV series on Blu-ray - NOT! The image is so stunning that watching just about anything is like seeing it for the first time - in the best way imaginable....

Richie3000,

I agree. The Epson 5030 beats a DLP in many ways. It falls short in terms of ghosting, but that's about it. Still, ghosting on the 5030 is superior to either JVC I had (RS40/45), and I...

Yes, Ultimate Wave: Tahiti has some killer 3D - very effective and dramatic use of the technology. Just as impressive is the surfing footage, in and of itself.

I didn't get to test the Samsung...

Piece of cake! My dad and I carried a 35" Mitsubishi tube TV up to my second floor apartment. Of course, that was a couple of decades ago and it weighed in at about 180 pounds. It's hard to imagine a...

Absolutely. :D Perhaps when the prices drop the 4K sets will support the wider color gamut and high dynamic range, too.

I watched "Ultimate Wave: Tahiti" last night. Especially with bright movies,...

At 6K I was in, but not 8K. LG did me a favor. I think I'm going to be very happy with the 9800. Now I feel comfortable waiting for the bigger sets to drop in price.

You seem well informed on such things, Rogo, so I'll ask you. My guess is that one reason the curve won't succeed for smaller sets, from a distribution standpoint, is that they're bulkier and more...

I applied the two software updates to the 9800 I reported on recently. Much of the ghosting problem has been mitigated, but at the expense of 3D pop. The 9800 now looks more like the 9300, although I...

And zero ghosting! That would be cool. Even cooler would be a glasses-free, ghost-free, true 110" 4K OLED. LG says they can make OLED that big, and several companies are working on glasses free 3D...

Right. 55" or 65" isn't enough of a curve to do much, if anything. But the 9800 is sitting about 7' from me in my black velvet home theater room until I make space for it in the bedroom. It fills up...

I'm on your list for the 65" 4K, but (with deep regret) you can take me off at the new pricing. When those 100" OLEDs are available for $10K, you don't even have to ask. Flat, curved or triangular,...

My uninformed guess is that curves on smaller (55"-65") TVs will fade away. What's fun for me to think about is a 110" 4K curved OLED in a home theater, playing 3D content. I doubt I'd ever be able...

Rogo,

Yikes! I thought you'd see the tongue sticking through the bleeding cheek in my last post, but you didn't.

Let me make this perfectly clear. I kinda like the curve, but I don't give a...

You don't like the curve, and my own words don't mean what I think they do. Instead, they inadvertently make the case against the curve, while...

I haven't checked the firmware yet. I've only had it for four days. I'll certainly do that. "Depth" adjustments on 3D displays don't fix ghosting problems. Adjust for one shot so that ghosting is...
