LG 77" OLED 77EG9700 Anticipation Thread
This TV has been announced for awhile now and we don't have an anticipation thread on the forums. Am I the only one interested in it? I'm in need of a larger TV and the 2015 FALD offerings just aren't holding a candle to my 55" ec9300 or ea8800 when it comes to black levels and contrast, two very important categories for me.
I know it's expensive, but I see we have some 85" XBR950B and 88" JS9500 owners on here and those TVs are in the same price range. So their are some of us out there willing to spend this kind of money.
Some questions I have:
Will the EG9700 get the same firmware update the EG9600 is to enable HDR from streaming sources? I would imagine it would, but LG didn't confirm that.
Does the EG9700 have full 18gbps Hdmi 2.0a ports with hdcp 2.2? Or could it be upgraded to have them down the road?
Will LG just ditch the EG9700 and come fall replace it with the EG9900? I think they announced the EG9700 last September so it's already going on a year with no commercial availability. I saw their 77 OLED at CES two years ago, but I think that was a 77EC9800 which never came to light.
Does anyone on the forums own this set yet? It's been reviewed many times so there are some units out there. If so, where did you get it from?
