That would kill demand in a flash and create a backlog. I don't see it happening.

Still, as a member of the posting police, I find it irksome having to scroll through the same images twice.

As another mobile user (on Tapatalk), I don't mind the photos in quotes. I can scroll pretty fast.

There's lots of 3D side by side format content available on YouTube. You will have to set your TV to 3D side by side format to view this material (your owners manual will explain how to engage this 3D format).

Here's an excellent 3D test on YouTube to test for crosstalk:

Oppo UDP-203 UHD Blu-ray Player (65-0131 firmware)
ELAC unifi B5 Speakers
NAD C316BEE Stereo Amplifier
Nakamichi Shockwafe 9.2 Sound Bar (3.2 firmware)/Xbox One X 4K Gaming Console/Apple TV 4K

By that time, I expect my Kuro to be fully dead. Then move the Vizio to the bedroom like I plan with the Kuro. I know the OLED is the only real successor to my Kuro. But I'm not sure I'm willing to drop $5K for a TV that's mostly for broadcast television and the occasional movie. My family and I always watch movies on the JVC 120". With that in the house, I just can't see dropping a lot of $$ on a set that's never going to be used as the primary movie source.

What do you think? If in similar situation, would you go with cheaper LCD and wait out OLED a couple of more years?
Tough call. I don't like the gray metal on the P so I was leaning toward a $1500 65" M as the "cheap" option if prices on the 65" B6 are not headed under $4000 by early Fall. I think they will be $5000 msrp and $4500 online in a few weeks.

If my KURO was dying I would get the OLED. Mine still looks great, so the invest,met is tougher to justify. Keep in mind that the 2015s are not quite as future proof as the new B6, and if this set becomes a movie viewer you may wish you had the latest formats on it. More than one buyer ended up getting rid of the projector or not using it much after seeing movies on the 2016s.

Just the employee discount, but it's pretty nice on this set.

This is new to me anyway but there are more detail photos on Amazon's site. A sign the 65" variant will be in stock soon (Amazon)?

Like dkwong indicated earlier the design is very similar to last year's models and the Gray back panel and black base will probably appeal to more folks.

LG 65B8 - Primary
LG 55EG9100 - Bedroom
Sonos Playbase
MS Xbox One S (using strictly as a disk player)

Everyone will get them sooner or later.......we will see how it all plays out. I know I would not hold my breath as delivery dates regularly get pushed.

Well not what people believed, but what's been confirmed by LG themselves - that it is the same panel.

Don't judge too harshly based on those photos. If the contrast is exaggerated as much as the saturation is, then the banding would be quite subtle in reality.

Obviously that's not the same case. To be comparable, you need same specs.. So what ever Panasonic puts in the TV, besides the panel, might influence overal experience..

I was lucky enough to snag one of the early allotments of the B65 from Value Electronics. I am getting the quality control and calibration through them, also. Hoping to have it mid June.

When I got my E6 my slides also had banding. I ran the 1 hour manual compensation cycle and the banding was greatly eliminated. A little banding on the slides now, but the banding I initially saw on difficult near black content is 99 -100% eliminated.

The best scenario may be to wail til this Fall and see where the pricing of the B6 stands. But doing this shuts you out of a EF9500 scenario since it's probable they'll no longer be available at that time.

I think actual EF9500 owners might be more helpful with your decision. What I gleaned from those who have upgraded to the 2016 OLED models is that they are much improved over the EF9500 and for my uses worth waiting for the 65B6. But for mostly broadcasts the difference might not be worth it for you. Good luck!
Having exchanged a 9500 for an E6 I can tell you that I would never go back to a 9500. For the differences already stated, the E6 is a a wonderful improvement over the 9500. That is assuming the PQ on the B and C panels will be similar to the E series.

You're clueless dude. You obviously didn't bother to read anything I posted.

I ran the panel noise clearance for the first time last night. I'll post up new pictures today hopefully and get a more accurate depiction.

The auto cycle is a 10 minute cycle, whereas the manual one is 1 hour long. There is definitely a difference between the 2 cycles. Also, if you go into service mode, you can actually see the counts for both the auto & manual cycles.

It has been recommended not to perform too many manual cycles (on AV forum) as it impacts the longevity of the panel.
