I'm talking about real content also. There's plenty of real content that doesn't contain anything extremely dark. Go outside on any sunny day and you'll see there is no absolute black. Unless you're...

OLEDs have a contrast ratio advantage because they can get extremely dark. If the content doesn't contain anything extremely dark, the contrast ratio advantage of OLEDs disappears. It's basic math.

I'm surprised they allow a subwoofer on a plane. And I wonder what the baggage cost will be for a 150lb package the size of a mini fridge. Assuming you're using a commercial airliner.

Contrast ratio is the most important, but it's importance decreases as the contrast of the content decreases. That's what you're failing to understand.

I don't know what LCDs you've watched, but I...

What I was referring to was bright content. Not having the brightness cranked up. Like viewing hockey as opposed to watching a batman movie.

One thing to keep in mind is unless you play pretty loud, you won't get much impact in your room. I have a 24'x16' room with 4 subs and is open to another 1000 sq ft or so. I don't get much impact...

If you want 75" at a reasonable price, you have to get a LCD. Eventually larger OLEDs will drop to competitive prices, but no one knows when that will happen.

Amazon won't fix the sub. It's likely worth it to try and contact them. They may send a free replacement or give you free return shipping via a RMA.

Worst come to worst, write up a rough letter and get a lawyer to clean it up and put it on their letterhead and send it out. Might cost you $100, but LG will respond.

Using dynamic HDR is only an advantage for dim TVs like OLED. If you have a very bright LCD, you likely won't get much of an advantage using DV or HDR10+ over HDR10.

I'm sure it's a good sub. Outlaw makes good products. But the price seems a little high. My guess is the price will come down or it will be on sale a lot.
