I hope so...I'm on the verge of a freakout/meltdown. They're gonna' have to lock me in a rubber room away from all monitors of any shape or size if this keeps up.

Yes, I'd like to see how effective the uniformity compensation feature is.

Thanks for the pics Ash! I'm sure that 5% screen will clear up to a certain degree after the set has been used, enjoy your new TV mate.

Any chance you could take some DSLR photos at 1%, 2% and 10% please?

And check near black?

You could be doing your fellow nerds a MAJOR favor!

In all fairness to Ash, we should be drilling someone more familiar with calibration with all our questions.

I had a 9500 for about 45 days and now G series for a few hours - so please take my comments keeping this in mind.

I would get a G6 just for:

1. Dolby Vision capable and higher nit TV
2. Way better user experience, the web OS 3.0 is much much faster - i was able to recognize all my components and integrate them in the smart remote.
3. If sound is a important issue for you then another very good reason.

The OLED picture on the 9500 is so darned good that for now I cannot say if this is better or much better - we are reaching a point that these sets are so fantastic that the content is where we need improvement.

Getting this years model would be better even if you need to wait for price to come down or get a lesser model such as the E or the B series...

Good luck - and make sure to watch 3D on this thing..

As much as we all want to see the near dark examples, or measured actual gamut coverage, we should just be letting this guy enjoy his tv, as he is probably one of the first to get it. My magnolia removed any sign of the g6 from their inventory as did Best Buy online so kudos to him for even getting one

Are you sure? I hope you are right, because the banding I’m seeing in that picture is really disappointing. But as long as I can’t see it in actual content, I’m ok with that.

As for the vignetting that will probably show up on 1%-2% slides, it looks like it would be very minimal. And vignetting will improve after so many hours, unlike banding.

this isnt even remotely true.

I see plenty of the banding in normal viewing.. for example, American Sniper, during the dust storm where they are trying to extract into a humvee.. yea thats an ugly scene for our TVs

I was sort of factious in my comment, but how much difference is there in a solid white panel and a fairly solid tan/sandy dust storm panel?

It's the nature of AVS. People say there are no perfect displays, BUT.......and then go on to sagely find all the imperfections. I'm a viewer, not an enthusiast, so I tend to end that sentence with a period, not a conjunction.

I've got a 151 calibrated by someone well respected here and I get moire in certain solid scenes. It's a bandwidth issue I can do nothing about, but I still love watching that set.

This comment on vignetting isn't close to true.

My 5% slide on my 9500 was perfect all the way down to 3%, 2 and 1% is where it got nasty. And I could see it in content, especially streaming where black levels were off, all the time.

FWIW, I've had banding on every Samsung OLED phone I've ever owned. I don't recall if this was an issue with Samsungs during their brief foray into the OLED market a while back.

There has been some talk about this TV possibly being more reflective than the EF9500.
What's you take on it, Ash?

Reason I had said that was from what I’ve heard with others experiences with vignetting is that it usually improves after watching the TV after a period of time (breaking it in). I am sorry yours did not do so.

As for the banding, I guess the best would be to ask Ash how much he has noticed during normal content, if any at all?

Congratulations, my question is if you watch or have access to any hockey, will be able to comment on any issues with any tint or staining on the ice, or how the set handles abl?

Do you think you'll find a way to wall mount that'll look acceptable, or are you planning to have your handy man build a shelf of some sort? Can you take a picture of the back so we can see how this temporary install looks?

Great question.

I have NO idea why manufacturers aren't taking reflections more seriously.

Imagine a TV where the advertisement read: "We have a front facing camera to video the room in front of the TV and redraw it as a ghostly reflection over everything you're trying to watch." Would that sell? Of course not.

But a @#$%ing mirror display seems to.

I'll never understand this. {shrug}

I don't find the G series to be any more reflective than the 9500.

LG is the most cutting edge TV company - they did not get their due respect over the years since Samsung has a much better marketing engine.

I have a 55 Inch LG TV in my bedroom i bought in 2006 - this TV is full backlit LED 1080 TV which is as good as the best latest backlit TV. The install on this TV very unique as the TV hangs on the wall and thier is a wireless box n which you connect all your players including cable... this box wirelessly sends the signals to the TV. A very clean install.

The biggest rub I have with the G series and that is why I was earlier thinking I should get a E series is the install. The TV is as thick as a iPhone BUT for wall install you need to fold the stand back which essentially makes the TV very thick .... my install is unconventional (I will post pictures later and you will know) so it will work for me but if someone wants to wall mount it - you will not get a art screen look....the 9500 had a much better clean install and I wish LG had kept that form factor... this is my only gripe with his TV so far,
