Because they usually don't own them and have just bought into the myth that they are no good (or other brands are superior). Sony makes excellent receivers and has for quite some time. If in...

It's the inescapable panel lottery. I've been super lucky with the Panasonics I've bought. My first -- an 50ST50 -- had virtually perfect uniformity. The second one -- an 50S60 (and the one I have...

Yes, of course. But that is their planned end game. It may not happen, but it's reasonably possible given a couple of things: OLED is super thin and light weight -- making it a good candidate for...

Yes, or you can get a calibration disk with greyscale patterns and try to improve it by eye, but it's super tough to do that.


This set can be super fine tuned, so it's one definitely worth...

Yes, as Randy said check for burn-in/image retention, and also get the hours that have been put on the set. Depending on the hours, you might be able to negotiate a lower price. But there is no...

Yes, continued price cuts are critical for competition, but wasn't one of the main reason why LG invested in OLED because it had the potential to become significantly cheaper to make than LCD? That...

This sounds like greyscale tracking error to me and not posterization.


Edit: Or it could be non-uniformity.

For the most, relative to Panasonic and Samsung, they are not very good, but might still be OK for the price (depending on the price). Their biggest weakness is a lack of good blacks.

One of the main reasons is because they used the Grimm AD1 for final A/D conversion on those. The best analog to DSD converter on the market by far. Super low distortion. Really tight and true...

Yeah, but for these OLEDs his is not bad at all. The near black non-uniformity will probably even out a little with time too. His has nearly no vignetting at all, which is big plus IMO. His...

I'd say that looks fairly good with no vignetting, though uniformity could be a little better. For me this would be a close call as to whether to exchange it for another. It depends on how OCD you...

Yes, I believe so. I have heard no reports of rising blacks on the ST60 (or any of the 2013 Panasonic Plasmas).
