I mounted the 9100 to my bedroom wall today. It replaced a 60" VT60 that I am moving to the living room.
Here are a few things I will say with the short time I've been using the 9100.
First off, so far, I am not missing my VT60. That alone is a huge statement coming from me. I will not say I like the 9100 more yet but I like it enough to not miss the VT60. All I have done so far is adjust a few of the basic settings. I lowered OLED to 60, turned sharpness and every noise/sharpness type setting off, turned off trumotion, raised the brightness to 54, and set the contrast to 75. I will calibrate it using a Spears and Munsil disc after I have a few more hours on it. Still with those simple adjustments it is putting up a very nice picture. I am impressed. I tried using trumotion but even with the recommended settings of 2/10, to me, it is obvious and distracting. I think motion looks just fine with it off. I have been watching the Red Sox and the Miami Heat games and motion looks good to me.
I mounted it using the LG mount. It does the job but after seeing it I know I could have used a more conventional mount with a few spacers. I prefer a simple tilt mount but the OTW150 works well. I was able to lock the tilt level in but the side to side movement is too easily adjusted. If I barely touch the joystick I can accidentally move the tv slightly. Maybe there is something else I can tighten down to help reduce that. I will look at it again. The instructions are extremely vague.
The one thing I don't like is the curve. It doesn't look bad when I am watching it and since this is in a bedroom the viewing angle isn't an issue. The main reason I don't like the curve is being able to see behind the tv more, lol. A very minor issue but if there was a flat 9100 version I would have been happier with that. Having such a thin profile but the sides are ~4.5 inches away from the wall at the bottom looks odd. It is even further away from the wall at the top since I have it tilted down slightly. If you don't mount it this won't be an issue and to be honest it really isn't an issue. I just would prefer it to be flat.
I haven't put up slides yet to see if I have any issues with uniformity or vignetting. In normal programming I haven't noticed any issues. I did see a few almost complete full screen white shots and I didn't seen any obvious tinting. If I do have any it appears to be minimal and not noticeable. I will post more on this once I calibrate it.
Overall I am very happy. Especially since I got in on the Buydig $1300 deal.
