Mine had some too the first day out of the box. (Only visible on specific content)

Now, 2 weeks later it appears to be gone. Overall I'm pretty impressed with grey uniformity.

The just released Flatpanel review, summarized their Z9D findings with this (emphasis mine):

"Z9D is without doubt the best TV from Sony to date and one of the best LCD TVs ever but with a relatively high price tag ($6000) it has to compete with the other manufacturers’ flagship TVs, including LG’s 2016 OLED TVs that start at $4000 for 65". And comparing Z9D to one of these we would, without doubt, pick the OLED. If you want one of the best LCD TVs today, Z9D is a great choice but compared to the competition the price seems a bit too steep."

What surprised me most about the review was not the conclusion, that I expected, but rather that even with the far greater brightness of the Z9D, they still thought the HDR picture was better and more dynamic. Here's the pertinent takeaway on this from the review:

"Z9D is without doubt one of the best LCD TVs for HDR reproduction that we have seen to date, but it does not beat HDR reproduction on the 2016 OLEDs that manage to reach visibly deeper black levels and at the same time maintain a higher dynamic range throughout a movie."

They also commented about blooming/halos. With that said, they did find the Z9D to be one of the best LCDs to date.

I recently purchased a 55B6P and as someone who came from a Panasonic TC-P50S60, I was expecting to barely notice any posterization/color banding. Using the Spears & Munsil disc to product RGB and YCbCr ramps, I haven't seen anything I would call smooth in comparison to most of the reviews I've seen. Is my panel defective?

Well...I sold my VT60 (for more than I paid for it in May) and decided to take a chance on a 3rd party seller from Amazon for a 55" C6 (new, under $2k, no tax, free shipping). I'm house sitting for a friend for the next month so if there are issues or I need to return/warranty for uniformity issues I won't be without a TV thankfully.

Now. My last OLED was an EF9500 and I had annoying uniformity issues. Would have lived with them if other life issues didn't force me to sell it back at the time.

I've been keeping up with the new 2016 and the forums here. From what I've read the panel lottery is almost entirely gone and most issues are fixed completely. Any special issues I should be aware of or anything I might have missed while skimming over the posts?

I don't plan on getting into 4k/HDR material until the new year even though I have an Xbox One S. Waiting on the upgrade boards for my Emotiva XMC-1 to be released for HDMI 2.0a support (end of year). So I will be only using 1080p (Blu-ray collection and gaming/streaming), and 1080i (DirecTV). Going to keep my Darbee in the chain to see if it helps add anything also. And I will be doing a full calibration myself.

Should be pretty straightforward getting back in love with OLED especially since I'm not worrying about HDR and it's wild west of calibrating/proper settings at the moment, right?

You can't post facts in the Flagship thread without being attacked, and that's supposed to be an open discussion, not an owner's thread. So you have no chance in the owner's thread.

I really feel badly for prospective buyers, not armed with as much knowledge as many AVSr's, trying to find objective information. It just won't happen.

Every salesman at every store I went to last week tried to get me to change my mind about the LG OLED and go with Sony Z series instead. When I said that Z was too much money they all -- almost as if reading from a script -- pointed me to the X series.

I don't know if stores are getting kickbacks from Sony or if the salesman are just buying into Sony's marketing, but every single salesman I talked to tried really hard to turn me off of the OLED with black crush concerns, low brightness for HDR, and warranty issues with LG. (I was told by one salesman to not buy OLED because LG won't even attempt to fix issues with sets.)

Considering that, it isn't surprising that enthusiasts in the Sony threads don't want to receive information that is contrary. Sony's reality distortion is very strong.

I don't currently own a Blu-Ray player and I am currently considering getting one to take advantage of some higher resolution content. I currently own a Bose sound system that includes a DVD player.

I am considering the Samsung UBDK8500 because it does 4K. But since the LG will upscale content will this unit at over $300 be necessary or will a lower priced Blu ray player which doesn't do 4K work just as well? Basically what would I be missing out on if I go with a Blu-Ray player which does not do 4K?

Thanks
I would recommend (for me it's a no brainer) waiting for the oppo UDP-203. In addition to getting player built like a tank for not that much more than the Samsung or a Sony it will likely be able to play Dolby Vision disks when they come out.

I don't know which stores you went to, but I am certain that the Best Buy near me the employees are on Samsung and Sony's payroll. The employees ALWAYS push those 2. I haven't seen this as much at the other BB I occasionally go to but I have heard it's common for BB in general to push those 2 brands

It has been a couple of days since I read the owner's thread, has anyone posted the review? Some have been begging for some legitimate reviews and flatpanelshd certainty qualifies.

Yes, of course...plenty of fallout from its discussion already. That thread is going to be a long and arduous one to get through as each new review surfaces.

I've have the exact same experience with my local Best Buy here in Southern California. I've been in there countless times and the sales person almost always goes over to the Sony display area first. If not, the Samsung. Although, I will say that since it does have the higher end Magnolia section, those particular salesman almost always push an LG OLED.

My Magnolia sales man says that the b6 is the one for me. He hates the curve and knows it is going in a theater so he says the soundbar is not worth the extra 1k. Maybe I have an honest one, but he also knows my knowledge on a/v gear. I do fps gaming from time To time and the wife hates the curve and the soundbar look on the e6. I am just worried about the lag. My plasma looks great so maybe next year. I have saved up the money so it is just a matter of time. My magnolia guy thinks that the OLED kills the z9.

I'm not so sure why there's so much hate on the curved C6? I mean, it's really not that bad Otherwise, I would have ponied up for an E6.

Also, I don't understand the large price difference between the B6/C6 vs the E6/G6. The soundbar/speakers can't be the only reason for the price increase. I know they all use a different processor but regardless from what I've heard/read, there has to be other reasons. No?

Not my experience. Both my NJ and Florida BB Magnolia salesman love the OLED panels by a wide margin. Regards. Ned.

Yeah same here, in fact a few months ago I asked the Sony reps opinion if he had a choice between the Z and Oled and got a surprising answer!

I prefer minimalist look of the B6. I will never use the soundbar nor 3D.

The E6 may have a bit more light output and possibly better processing of 24P delivered at 1080P (Netflix/Amazon) but it is not clear if the TrueMotion makes this a non-issue. I suppose that depends on the viewer.

Many are lowing the OLED light setting so I think brightness is not an issue.

Perfect blacks, accurate colors, amazing contrast, what's not to like.
This may sound strange, but I can't wait to see Casablanca on this display.

As I said I haven't noticed it at the other BB I occasionally go to. It definitely seems true at the one closest to me though I swear. They push Samsung and Sony and they are very anti Vizio. Then again the people at the BB near me just plain suck. If you aren't looking to spend like at least 1000 dollars they barely even want to talk to you or waste their time. And they tell people the dumbest things... one time a couple was looking at the OLED's and was very impressed by them. One of the things they were most impressed by was the viewing angle. So the BB dude tells them that all 4K TV's have perfect viewing angles simply because they are 4K... It was funny because there was a 4K Samsung LCD right next to it that was clearly washed out and looked terrible because of the angle we were at as he is saying this nonsense. As soon as he left I explained to the couple how that was BS and showed them a few 4K LCD's that clearly had VA issues. That's just one of the stupid things... one time one of the sales people tried to explain to me that OLED's have no pixels and are made entirely out of carbon

In my experience the BB 40 minutes away the people are much better, I have heard them say things that aren't true to customers but not quite as ridiculous things, they seem like they ta least try to be honest and they will talk to you even if you don't want to spend tons of money.

Yeah, you never know what you're getting when at a BB. Do they even do any training on what they're selling?
When I went to my local BB to look at the LG OLEDs I lucked out. There was an LG rep there and he gave me an excellent demo and knew everything about all 4 of the models. I didn't have to deal with the BB staff at all, until it came to the painful moment to take my credit card out. I chose the B6 as the PQ looked as good as the others and I don't care about 3D. I figured I can buy a hell of a good sound bar for the $1K difference 😋

Most of them I am sure no. The thing is the average person is clueless about tech, so the BB people can literally tell them anything. What people don't realize is that the average BB employee around 90% of time isn't a knowledgeable and "tech savy" person either. The are generally just people who needed a job and happened to land there I guess.
