I spoke with the Samsung rep and he was actually there for another event at CE week. LG and Sony sent reps there specifically for the shootout.

If you do your viewing in a dark room then yes the Samsung was 3x better than the Panasonic. It was horrible in a dark room environment.

I purchased last years top of the line Samsung LED and it still was nowhere near the quality of my Sony HX929 from 2011. The 55EC9300 was the first set I felt comfortable with replacing the Sony...

The big takeaway for me after this event was how much LED's have improved in just 1 year. Where were these improvements from 2011-2014? I guess LG woke everyone up with their production of OLED and...

So I attended the afternoon session and these are my observations.

1. I was shocked at the black "flames" on the edges of the LG set. I own a 55EC9300 and haven't ever seen anything like that....

Big thanks to Chad B for calibrating my 55EC9300 on Sunday! My settings were pretty good pre calibration but Chad was really able to dial in the color. Skin tones look great!

I used to keep my Sony HX929 at a 4 out of 10 when it came to brightness. I would say the LG OLED is very close at 52%. I have a ton of light blasting the screen from windows directly across and it...

My 55EC9300 handles panning motion better than my Sony HX929 did. The Sony had some DSE but the OLED has clear fluid motion. The only thing i notice is the sports ticker on ESPN judders. Does this...

I would definitely snatch up the 55" flat model if it breaks the sub $4000.00 mark. Was anyone here actually in attendance at CES to comment on how the new sets looked?

LG 4k OLED in September!

http://hdguru.com/lgs-ultra-high-definition-4k-oled-tv-price-leaked/

Priced at $6999 . Sounds like a steal compared to the Sony X950B. Only negative I see is the curved screen.

I asked the rep and he said the tv was not set to vivid. I cannot confirm this but that's what he did say.

The tv did look great I just don't think it was worthy of an $8000 price tag.
