Swapped out my unit (had a faulty bluetooth/wi-fi radio) and got a September build this time (last one was August) and attached is the 5% shot taken with an iPhone 6S.

That is a pretty good-looking screen in terms of Vignetting. If you try a 2% pattern it will likely show some more, but at 5% it looks pretty good.

The near-black streaking/nonuniformity should start to be compensated away if you use the TV for 2-6 hours per day and power down overnight.

How long before your return period is up?

Was there something published that LG is running compensation circuitry when the TV is turned off? I've seen a lot of talk about it, but could all just be urban myth.

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 a 4:3 film /TV episode the cycle will take an extra minute with less time used for full open matte 16:9 AR. The 4 hour time is accumulative, if you watch for 3 and turn off the LG nothing will happen other than the TV going off. If you go back and watch another hour and turn it off, the cycle will run. Nothing is stated in the on board documentation about this and when it first stated happening I thought I had a defective TV.

From what I have read in this thread, perhaps LG has changed the interval to 6 hours. Not sure about that as I do not own this model. (YET!) One thing I can guarantee you is it is NOT an Urban Myth. Mine does it more than once a day.

That's awesome! Congrats!

So how long have you had the TV? When did the band show up? How long did it take to go away? Mine is still there.....

From what I've been reading on this thread, these issues tend to go away with use, so out of the box, you may not like it, but give it a few days to a week, and it should be better.

I think I'd be sick about it.

But we do have reason to believe that the problem self corrects itself with use.

Lets just see how that plays out.

Can you imagine the panning on that for smoky/fog scenes. It'll look hideous.

It would have to look hideous. I dont know, maybe I should wait ANOTHER year to see what happens. Finally got a nice flat oled, but major issues IMO are present.

The only thing I'd say is don't base opinions on others people's pictures, have a look for yourself.

These 5% issues are very minor but looking at the pics, you'd think the TV was unwatchable.
These are the best consumer TVs that have ever been produced, even with the issues.

I've heard this many times about the term trolls. It flies about when certain people don't like what they read. They try to get a mob going to follow that trend to demonise such people to shut them up. Or permanently silence them from a backlash.

So it is ironic about others calling others trolls when it is a form of bullying. You see it time and time again across any forum when they don't like what they read.

Well there's one person in that chain who keeps posting a one sentence, over-arching generalization about these sets and their owners every few pages without providing any first hand experience to back up such claims.

You can question it and express concern. But to scream that the sets are unwatchable when you don't even own one, and when the majority of owners agree that the defects (a) fade or disappear over time and/or (b) aren't often noticeable or bothersome viewing actual content versus torture tests, comes across as unreasonable and hyperbolic. The vignetting is improving greatly and that is the worst problem by far. Even then, you could watch the set for quite some time before you see it manifest (based on my viewing expeditions to Magnolia).

My Kuro 151 shows major false contouring in certain scenes but few would consider it unwatchable. With many films it never happens even once. But on certain test patterns, it would look awful.

Well, I am a potential future owner. I see these pictures posted, and shouldn't be concerned paying $5k and be concerned? I LOVE oled, have been a fan since day one. I am posting this on my Samsung tab which uses an ambled display. We as potential future owners come here for advice from owners who can help us in the decision making. Isn't that what this forum is all about?

I've been watching my 65ef9500 for about a week now. It's hands down the best picture I've seen. before this panel I had a Kuro Pro FD151 for 7 years that was expertly calibrated.

Watched Galaxy of the Guardians last night - pure eye candy. Nothing beats true black

I'm not going to spend anytime running test patterns. Just went with a few recommended settings from it's curved brother and it looks great!

Once it's burned-in I will get it professional calibrated.

Looks great on my set as well. Nothing amazingly earth shattering, its just some burning logs, but it doesn't look dim or screwed up etc. Looks fine to my eyes.

I have had the tv for 5 days. The yellow band showed up day 2. It's fades a bit every day. Even though my picture shows nothing there, it's still faintly visible. I can live with it.

This TV really does sound like it is the best available and a huge step up from my TC-P65V10.
I want my next TV to support me for the next 10 years.
With that being said, I will be waiting for the next gen that will support Rec.2020 and SuperMHL.

I think what he's trying to say is that it's a waste for amateurs to use these slides. Most people don't have a clue on what their purpose is or how to use them properly. They are very useful to calibrators and for those that know how to use them and what they mean for a proper calibration.
I think a lot of people here are obsessing on these slides and they shouldn't, leave that for the professionals and just enjoy a great tv.

Laters,

Yeah, same here.

Probably won't get all of 2020 next year but more of it, minimum 800 nits HDR too.
SuperMHL is interesting, I wonder if It'll make it onto next year's TVs. It could be that rather than continue with HDMI, the industry will start to move towards MHL. Still think HDMI 2.1 is due though.
