I'd get the larger TV. The ZT and VT have the same panel, so there's no difference in terms of IR. The only difference is the anti-reflection filter. The ZT's is better, but that only comes into...

Samsung isn't making OLEDs. LG's equivalent sized OLED is more than twice what I paid for my ZT60 two years ago. We've heard a lot about the tech and there's no one here who wouldn't trade their...

There are no new panels. As far as I know there never were extra panels made or set aside for repair purposes, but even so the TV has been out of production for a year and a half now.

I doubt you'd get anything for it considering your panel & a board are shot. It's incredible they have a spare board to do the repair. I'd be wary of using a refurb without inspecting it first. Tough...

Wow, thanks for the list Steve. The TV sits on a buffet type table. The idea is to get speakers that'll fit on that. If not, then we'll consider stands.

2.0 TV setup for nephew's birthday - $100-150

It's my nephew's 17th birthday. I asked him what he wants and he says some money toward a sound bar. I ask him which one and he sends me a link to some cheap LG refurb. I know how awful even...

Run a full screen of white or light gray and examine for image retention. If you don't see any then the only other thing you should worry about are the front panel of glass separating at the corners...

The entire image is shifted a couple of pixels to the side, up or down, thus "pushing" a couple (few?) rows/columns of picture off the screen. This in effect "pulls" a row/column of black onto the...

The Pixel Orbiter works with Overscan set to "off" in all but the THX picture modes. You can tell by looking at the edge of the screen when switching between THX and non-THX modes. It should be...

IIRC a bias light is most effective when the walls are white. Bias light cast onto a black wall would not have the same effect as that cast onto a white wall. I have wood paneling and can't have a...

Any ISF calibrator should know what the Pro modes are for and how to access them. Calibrating only the THX modes is not a full and proper calibration, so I hope you didn't pay full price.

I would be very, very suspicious of anyone saying they have a NIB ZT60. I'd bet just about anything it has hours on it and I wouldn't pay a cent for a TV I wasn't able to verify hours on.

Yes, the cores are intended to be attached to power cords to prevent interference with other electronics. Never noticed anything unsavory when my TV is on. I wonder if anyone else has.
