I have poor gray color with hundreds of shades of gray. I was watching Underworld in 4K with Sony 4K player and it was very annoying to see these band, like a dirty window screen.
I paid a lot of money and I have the most expensive Best Buy warranty. I am going to replace TV using all necessary arguments and my very expensive warranty.
The picture is taken when I am in Youtube search window. I have Ethernet cable connected to TV, the Internet has no issues. As I said it was the same bad dark gray for 4K Underwald played on Sony UBP-800 default settings.
WHICH ONE SHOULD I GO? LG C7 or Sony?
What you see is vertical banding on dark shades of gray. This is unfortunately inherit to the OLED panels now. But this issue has been minimized in the newer models. I am sure you see lot less banding with both Sony A1E and LG C7. As for picture quality, A1E does a better job with low quality / compressed sources (like cable, and streaming). I suggest after getting your new TV to test for banding and uniformity to make sure you don't have a big problem before return window closes.
