2019 C9–E9 Owner's Thread (No Price Talk)
I agree with Ken.
I had E8 prior to E9. (Both 65"). I can notice far less ABL on E9 compared to E8 to the point where ABL doesn't bother me anymore.
Regarding brightness, I don't notice much difference if at all. I have not done any side by side comparisons but I feel both are about the same in terms of sheer brightness.
That being said, whether it's E8 or E9, neither of them are no where near bright enough to produce punchy picture like, for example, QLED.
One of main reasons I prefer to play games on 2,000 nits Samsung Q9FN.
Sheer brightness is not OLED's forte.
