I have yet to find a Kuro owner that had anything negative to say about their display. In fact, most of us had kind of a smugness that indicated, "I have the best display".
I did notice the soap opera effect that scared the living daylights out of me on the G6. However, after tweaking and after the set went through it's cycle to improve picture, it is diminished to the point where it is no longer an issue.
I know, I know, I just repeated what I said before. However, we all see things different and I want to ensure I am projecting my observations objectively. As I stated, I am not an expert and I certainly don't look for flaws. If I found one, that would be all I see. I could not tell you the difference between vignetting and vinegar.
Therefore, I just try and play the part of average Joe, the consumer and user. From that perspective, I am absolutely amazed.
Each day has been better than the next. One, I am more comfortable with the set and now know what to do when I have handshake issues as mentioned before.
The colors are vibrant, rich but not phony looking. All content including watching NFL highlights have been superb.
4K content has been exceptional. As some mentioned, content will be some good, some not as good and some spectacular. Black and white is vibrant and striking. 3D is in a league of it's own.
As I mentioned before, the soap opera effect was very concerning initially. Watching Dark Matter on Netflix was troubling. It is a show I thoroughly enjoyed and when I watched it on the G6 I was afraid I may not ever watch it again. It was that bad. Not now. Whether it was the tweaks mentioned or the set settling in. Whatever, it is better than my Kuro and Kuro owners don't say anything like that lightly.
Therefore, if you are in the market, I would suggest you wait until it is on display at a local store. In this way, you can go in and see for yourself.
Let your own eyes be the judge. Mine say this. This is the best display I have ever seen.
Can't wait for the new 4K Blu Ray to get here.
Now, if only Roku can get it's act together. There is some content that takes forever to download and play back is hesitant and choppy and unplayable. That appears to be one particular station. Amazon and Netflix work just fine.
Last, you mentioned the flicker trails. I watched NFL content on NFL network on Direct TV as well as the NFL channel on Roku.
Direct TV NFL network was flawless. Spectacular if I dare to be so bold. However, on Roku, there were trails and motion issues. That said, I experienced the same thing with my Kuro on the Roku. I don't know why that is. However, it is not the LG since I experienced the same thing with the Kuro. That said, all live NFL I will be watching on Direct TV which is something I am very much looking forward to.
