Don't the "C" and "B" use different processors? B...LG α7 Intelligent Processor. C...LG α9 Intelligent Processor. Seems just as poor a choice to put these two 2018's together in one thread, as it did in 2016...with the "B" having a different processor and no 3D. Leads to confusion and frustration. The "B" should have it's own thread. The "C" should be grouped in with the other models using α9 Intelligent Processor. Why repeat the same mistake year after year?

I'm with Kenbar who set up the other two threads though I question the point of already starting that B8 thread when that line doesn't even have a price or release date.

I sure hope it won't be a situation where there are 3 billion different threads on these sets.

I set them up in the hope of avoiding multi threads and a repeat of confusions.

Agreed. Changed to C8 and E8 I would think the W folks would want their own. Thoughts?

I would think so...while it uses the a9 processor...and PQ should be the same as the C8 up, it's a much different unit by design.

If you did not buy an extended warrantee on your current set I’m sure it will break just in time for you to get the 77 inch.

I think the street date is March 19th, so still ten more days. Hopefully going to pick mine up that day from BestBuy which I put a deposit down. I think someone said they are already in the warehouses in the US, just waiting for the 19th.

There will never be a complete "fix" as you call it until all displays can display the entire 10,000 nit range that's already being used by many HDR games. You either clip/compress those bright details between 700-10,000 nits or you dim the entire image to keep everything visible.

According to German previews, "Active HDR" style dynamic tone mapping can now be enabled in game mode. This helped boost HDR movie brightness in 2017 sets so I suspect it will have a similar effect on most game scenes in 2018. BFI blur reduction has also been confirmed to work in game mode. Unknown what additional lag either feature introduces.

I think some of what he is talking about may be in reference to Windows 10's ahem, "lackluster" HDR functionality. It is still quite a mess unfortunately.

The only way I can even get HDR to work on my PC for games is using madVR and placing the game in borderless windowed mode.

HDR in pc-mode (as in changing the hdmi input to pc) is broken on 2016 and also 2017 TVs I think and this has nothing to do with windows. It's the same when using a ps4 or some other device. It will make the picture look washed out and wrong as if it was using the wrong color gamut or something like that. The advantage of pc-mode would be low input lag with any of the picture presets but its useless since its broken.

Really looking forward to impressions of the new chip and its upscaling capabilities. I have an E6 and that is one of my big disappointments is the upscaling of 720p or 1080i cable (Directv).

I’m curious to how the new 3dlut system will be... every oled generation so far has had issues with broken cms controls, and whereas this is taking calibrated readings to create a new table, is the internal chipset going to actually portray colors correctly? Or even though it gets a meter read patch for the color red and by numbers look correct, will it visually come up as an eyesore...

On the street it looks like the XBR-77A1E will be about the same price as the OLED77C8P........That is interesting.

I just was told I could get the first 65" C8 that comes out the warehouse on the north east.. I prepaid for it with the assurance that I am #1 on the list for my retailer..

Ehh.. it will replace the G6 installation... it will be close to the bedroom A1E to A/B performances... Yolo.

Please let us know how it compares to your G7. I picked up a 7 series for the living room this past year, but the bedroom TV could use an upgrade!

I’ve historically been a Samsung owner with no problems. I want to jump into LG OLED. Can anyone comment on reliability for LG OLED? I’m about to pull the trigger for a pre order on the C8 65”

They only really became common when prices fell on the 2016 models. So not many have high hours on them. Most have less than 5000 hours and I have not seen anyone with 10,000+ hours yet. So not a lot to base a judgement on...regarding historical reliability.
