I feel the same way about my 2nd Gen 9300 and the 8th Gen Kuro I sold to afford it. Even with slight banding, silhouetting, the dreaded curve and less than stellar motion, the immersion of the PQ far...

I posted a comment at the bottom of that review, identifying myself as an LG OLED early adopter. (9300 with 5500 hours on it) I asked about panel uniformity in regard to B&W reproduction and my...

I agree completely. Film renders as L U S H on OLED screens, including my own 9300. (early adopter here) You should check out "Trumbo" for an excellent example of digital approaching the visual...

Mine is worse than yours in regard to tinting. Also, I don't notice any untoward banding on your white screen pics. I would say keep it. Even the currently available 9500 suffers from this so the...

4000+ hours on mine and has had the tinting since day one. I am guessing the reason lies with the 3D or anti glare overlays. I watch tons of B&W and it is a real eyesore. Otherwise the 9300 has...

No popups since the FW update. Watching a 6 film Hobbit/LOTR marathon and made it thru 3 of the films with no sign of the problem at all. Glad they fixed it!

I agree, but do not blame the director and editor. The blame would sit squarely with the Director of Photography/Cinematographer. Actual FILM, when properly done, will always outshine digital at...

Same here. It only happens while viewing HDMI 3 (my Oppo). While watching a BD, the HDMI input box will pop up and announce HDMI 2 (my Fios DVR) The only way to keep it from happening is to cut...

I just passed 4000 hours on my 9300. While the black bars are actually pixels that are OFF, the problem you end up with over time is UNEVEN WEAR of the panel. This shows up in noticeably brighter...

Interesting theory and just as good as any other out there right now. It is definitely a physical defect. NO amount of firmware updates will affect this and you can't "calibrate it out" as some have...

My 14 month old 9300 runs the cycle every 4 hours (after powering down). It usually takes a good minute or so for it to complete and the LG logo stays lit while it is functioning. If I just watched...
