Sorry guys. I took a pause from the C7 evaluation to allow the panel to age a bit..... with break-in slides Aging is definitely needed and the end results are extremely impressive. It is better than the B6 and any of the 2016 LGs. I'll be back in evaluation mode tomorrow.

Hmmm..

I spoke to what sounded like a confused LG customer service representative who stated that it was normal for the screen to be tilted on the C7 2017 model.

I'm still questioning the validity of his statement.

Hopefully other owners will be able to confirm.

D-Nice, I'm interested in breaking in with slides as well. Will you be posting settings for the break-in period?

Thanks!

Just throw it in Vivid mode and set the slide speed to fast.

In what areas have you seen or are expecting improvement by running the slides?

Are you running them non-stop or shutting down every 4 hours to allow the set to run the automatic wear compensation?

Like the good ole' days. I'm at 200 hours on a G6, but that's still not going to stop me from trying this method for the next 50 hours or so. The Vakmeister apparently goes this route on all of his OLEDs. I expect it's mostly a placebo, but his G6 looks damn nice, so what the hey.

No need to wait, just look at the product picture, you have a faulty stand/mount

Great work dude. I'd love to hear what you think of the motion btw. How much of the 2016 judder is still there? And any close up pix of the bezel would be appreciated.

Damn it! I was all set on getting another E6 for the 3D, but if this C7 is better than all the '16 models, I may just have to get a C7 instead...

Nothing has changed over the last 10+ years I've been recommending using full field color slides to evenly age each sub pixel. Specific to the OLED, reduced low end noise, reduced low end banding, improved screen uniformity. I also ran the panel/pixel compensation every 24-36 hours the last week.

Nonstop except for the pixel/panel compensation runs.

D-Nice, this is interesting, I did try the slides on my E6 last year to no avail but I wasn't at vivid max brightness mode.

Can you say which slides do you use exactly? Is it red,green,blue,magenta,yellow,cyan,black and white?

Also the method is to put them on usb stick and start a full screen slideshow at speed = fast?

Thanks!

Have you watched any blu-rays or anything like that yet? Or anything in HDR on Youtube?

Good questions. And where do we find full screen slides? I have some slides but they don't take up the entire screen on my OLEDs.

My C7 won't show up today. Wasted a day off from work and now have to take another Monday. Anybody waiting for YRC to deliver, good luck in trying to figure out when and how.

I need to take a break and hit my favorite watering hole soon to relax.

Have you tried these techniques on a 2016 OLED? If so, did you see any improvement in near-black screen uniformity?

Compensation cycles alone seem to deliver some improvement from out-of-the-box near-black nonuniformity, so I'm specifically asking about what the 'aging/break-in' procedure delivers beyond that...

You have to wait to see how "much" better it is before you decide if it is worth the added cost and loosing 3D?

It also depends how much 3D you would plan to watch, which depends on what kind of things you like.

Lag testing LG OLED 2017

Lag Testing:

LG OLED55C7P (building date feb 2017)

using Leo Bodnar Video Signal Input Lag Tester ( http://www.leobodnar.com/shop/?main_...roducts_id=212 )

Results:
Game mode: 21.2ms (tested on middle bar)
ISF preset (With true-motion off): 46.2ms (tested on the middle bar)

There is no HDR game mode.. which is odd. Maybe there is some magic that it knows it is game HDR if it was on game mode before?
I could never get my LoeBonar lag tester with work with HDR. (Not on a G6, ef9500 or this C7)

If you have an upscaling UHD player with a USB input, that can be a workaround.

Would you please measure with 4k @ 60Hz @ 4:4:4 (PC input+ Game mode)? don't forget to enable deep color of course , thank you

You need to send HDR metadata to see the HDR game mode on the list to select.
