is much appreciated, however this is an Official LG XXPZ950 Owners Thread.
Please post relevant data, thanks.
Any response to my questions in #144?
Considering I owned both of the tvs, i have said the tvs are nearly identical panel wise, menu wise, settings wise. The only difference is the smart tv, bluetooth glasses, and a faster response panel. It is very relevant, as you have no idea what the PX950 was like. The THX Cinema mode is also set up identically and the same noise reduction setting is there turned on. Optimal gamma can only be gotten on this tv in (Gamma=High) mode, yet THX Cinema uses Medium, which is already off.
There is nothing wrong with using THX Cinema, as the picture is good with it out of the box, and it won't cost you $250+ to calibrate. It is nowhere near as good as a calibrated picture will be on this set though. I have seen the difference it can make with the previous nearly identical panel, and it is a big difference.
I've laid out a clear and precise answer with color charts as to why an ISF calibration is much better than THX Cinema. I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. You may think the color is accurate, but it is not.
