New owner of an LG C8 55" here, my first OLED... I told myself I would'nt go looking for trouble, and overall the picture is just about perfect in 98% of content. Sadly though, I have noticed, with the really dark grey scenes, a dark column on the left side of the display.. So, I check the 5% grey slide, and yup, pretty lacking in uniformity, unfortunately. Turns out there are two columns/bands, the darker one on far left is the one that rears it's ugly head in content. The camera pics do exaggerate it, not as bad in person, but it is noticeable.
Right now I'm sitting at around 80 hrs, I've run one manual comp cycle after I noticed it roughly 20hrs ago, didn't seem to help the darkest band. Purchased from Best Buy 7 days ago, and have about 7 more to decide if I should play the panel lottery, so hows it look guys? Can that dark patch get any better, or should I exchange?
