If they do not have a "509" unit, I will not go through with the purchase.



Thanks, Ray

There is not enough evidence that any builds are better than others.

Depends on the ZIP code where you live. For me, sales tax is 10.0%.

Thanks. I will still check.

Does this set pass Dolby Digital from the optical port? I will use this with my Bose Cinamate 130.

I have a 55EF9500 coming from Amazon Prime and it "should" be delivered Tuesday. Also, I'm replacing my 2K Amazon Fire TV with the new 4K model (2160p up to 30fps) which will be here tomorrow.

BB already refunded me $1070 after calling them this morning and being told they would call me back in 48 hours. Just need to deal with the free TV thing.

I read the manual and it looks like a LG mount designed for this model is needed. Not standard VESA measurement. If someone else can please confirm this.

Very tempted to jump in on this deal. Problem is I don't want the headache of the free 49" TV. I have no need for it and don't want to go through the hassle of selling it.

You can give it to the next person who walks into that Best Buy as you walk out.

Kind of curious as to why people would jump on this deal ... isn't Panasonic threatening to gift us with the Holy Grail of OLED's soon, as soon as they can graft the 65EF9500 panel with their presumably-superior video processing tech?

Edit: Also, with that CP pre-order deal being $749 less (presumably due to the lack of the 49" 'free' TV) ... is it really worth $750 to be able to walk into a BB and get it as opposed to ordering it over the 'Net? That's a helluva savings if you ask me!

I just put on my big boy pants and pulled the trigger - 55" set to be delivered on Wednesday by Amazon. Hoping I don't have any issues with yellowing on the right side, but I'll report back once it's in my living room.

The waiting is the hardest part.

Also I read that you need a 9500 built September or later why is that?
They are all 10 bit.

With that, I have three questions.

1) want to confirm this unit can do HDR. I read both ways but am 99% sure it can.

2) since the pixels are self illuminating, is there a chance for burn in with regular use (mixed TV, movie and gaming)?

3) what is the longevity of the pixels maintaining their brightness over time?

When I saw the OLED screens when I was at CES four years ago I knew I will get one someday!

Thanks and very excited to join the OLED crowd.
Congrats,

1- yes it does HDR
2- have not seen any reports from owners from eg9600/ef9500 Oleds.
3- I wouldn't worry about it, longevity is a long time.

That's the first time I ever heard anyone complain about getting a free tv, lol give it to a relative or friend.

I waited for months to purchase the 65EF9500 because I'm not a big fan of curved TVs and didn't want to settle for the 65EG9600.
Unfortunately, as you can see from the attached images, like other forum members, my less then two week old TV also has the yellow band on the right side of the TV.
It wasn't there when I first got it but it was noticed Friday night right after I turned on the TV.
I'm not sure how anyone can actually find this kind of defect acceptable on a TV with this kind of price tag or any price for that matter.
With at least 6 other forum members experiencing the same yellow band issue, I honestly don't think it's even worth taken a chance on a second TV, even with the current drop in price + other deals and promotions.

Sadly, I packed it and took it back to the store. Now I'm shopping for an alternative TV.

WOW! I wonder what is going on with this streak appearing days, or weeks later?? That's terrible news.

It is depressing. I was all "gung-ho" to pick up a 65" today, but there is just no way. I can't deal with this, especially since I watch a lot of hockey. Some people can "minimize this" by saying its only a small number of people who have issues, but how many have the issue and aren't posting. I'm glad more people are stepping forward, and even more so, I hope LG fixes this.

There are some of us teetering on the edge of pulling the trigger...but its just too scary right now.

Just picked up my 65", put it through some thorough tests.

- 1 dead red subpixel near the center (the pixel can display everything but red). No way you could ever see it in real content or from normal viewing distances.
- Absolutely no dark edges at 5%/10%. Did not test lower because I don't have the patterns.
- There is a yellow band and it's dependant on the angle you watch the TV. I played multiple snow/white scenes and even staring for it I struggle to see it in even the worse case scenarios. I played hockey, I could notice it in a few scenes. If it was never pointed out to me, i'd never see it.
- One corner seems slightly brighter than the rest of the screen but I haven't noticed it in real content yet.

This is me being very picky and doing absurd testing that no normal user would do. This thing destroys the EG9600, the dead subpixel is an annoying just to know it's there, and the yellow band is so minor that i'll trade that for dark edges any day. Overall i'm pretty pleased but I need more time to play with it more. Firmware update went flawlessly too.

Since most of us had the issue develop after the FW update, I wonder if it would be wise to ignore the update, as perhaps something in the FW is messing tv's up after a few cycles.

Yours looks exactly like mine, and i have an August build too. The bulk have all been August, with only 2 September builds so far. The September builds that are bad could be from an older lot of panels used for August builds and leftovers used in early September builds. The next shipment that BB will receive is in about 10 days. Those may be late September or early october builds. You may want to see if those are better.

Does the yellow look like any of the pictures posted above your post from Techtrender?
