I switch between using Expert Bright and Dark room, using the setting posted by rtings.com
I use Philips Hue strip lights for my tv’s. I recommend getting the base strip(80”)and then light strip extensions(40”) which are a 1/3 of the price. In order to get the strips around the 77”, I had to buy one base light strip and two extensions. It’s not a cheap investment because you need the Hue bridge as well. But I’m all in on Phillips Hue. I have four rooms with various Hue lighting solutions.

Ooooo the E9. You’re going to love it!

Yeah, I had planned to wait a couple more years to upgrade to OLED. But I recently moved to 8000 feet so I had to give up my 64" H5000 plasma

I am quite excited about getting a C9 now though. By the next time I am ready to upgrade hopefully 88" will be down to a reasonable price.

Funny you guys bring this up because 20 minutes into GoT, I had to turn it off. It was too bright. That never was an issue my Samsung LED.

With an LED/LCD lacking perfect blacks (meaning all of them ), that is exactly the purpose of a bias light - to compensate and make blacks look black as night relative to higher-than-black ambient lighting.

With an OLED, you cannot improve on perfection, so the only purpose for a bias light is to reduce eye fatigue for those who suffer from it when viewing in a pitch-black viewing environment.

If you don't suffer from eye-fatigue, experiment with a low setting versus turned off and please report back. It looks very cool, but I suspect once you have experienced perfect blacks and a true floating image, you'll decide to keep the bias light for show&tell and watch critical content with it turned off...

Fafrd has me convinced that the new factory will bring the 77 or 75" prices down in the next few years but I could wait no longer.

I got a "65C9" from Best Buy but when I unboxed, it was white with a narrow crystal stand. This didn't seem right but the serial number sticker said OLED65C9PUA, as did the TV Name in About This TV. It would not accept the firmware update via USB either. After playing around with it for the evening, being disappointed, and deciding it definitely wasn't right; I took it back. The blue shirt kid identified it as probably a B6 with which someone had scammed them. They'd even re-banded the C9 box. Best Buy was very helpful and apologetic and swapped it out for me. Even verified that the $350 gift card maintained it's validity throughout the return.

The actual C9 is more refined than the scammed one. It's a definite upgrade from the plasma in every way. My kid asked, "Did you get a smaller TV?" which I suppose is a fair question given that the C9 doesn't have a 3" bezel. I have read all 63 pages of this thread and appreciate the advice and insights. After spending 2 days playing, watching and tuning, I think I've got it where I want it for the next 100 or so hours til I can get a pro calibration.
Awesome to hear! I am in the same boat, I have a 65 VT30 but I've been eyeing a new TV for the past year or so. Just curious if you watch any sports and can comment on the C9 performance versus the VT30? I tried getting BB to put some Sports programming on last weekend but to no luck
Enjoy the TV!

What are the dimensions of the stand for the 77in model? It looks smaller than the 65" and 55" from the pictures, is that accurate or an illusion?

I’ve been so programmed to use it with the Samsung, I instinctually wanted bias lighting for my new tv. But now with OLED in my home,I know what you mean by not being able to improve perfection. The whole benefit of bias lighting has become moot.

Sorry, I threw away the stand since I mounted it. But anecdotally, from setting up my coworkers 55C9, I recall the stand for the 77C9 being very similar in dimensions.

I notice the Multiview app is missing from the 77C9. And I believe it’s in the 77C8 right? I saw it when I played with a demo unit in Best Buy. I was looking forward to picture-in-picture from two sources : (

Could you please check the settings in the Sound Option of Windows 10? How many channels (two or more) did you found in Properties - "Maximale Anzahl von Kanälen"(sorry, it's a German OS)? I found two channels (see my pic at https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40-ol...l#post58007754)

Enjoy the TV!
I don't watch sports but it sounds like motion control is the primary concern for sports people? My impression is that any judder there is, is "finer" than what the VT30 has. It's less chunky looking. Gamers pan around a lot and raw higher refresh rate smooths that out. I can imagine it's the same for say, a football kick off return tracking shot. It looks far better than your average sports bar LCD. There are far more options to fiddle with to tune the motion stuff. I'm hardly an AV Scientist here, never saw a black frame inserted anywhere. But you'll come out ahead of the plasma in every way.

Here's how you rationalize getting one now: A 77C9 is $7000 and a 65C9 is $3500 today. If you get a 65 now for $3500 and a 77 or 88 in a few years for $3500, you've spent the same $7k but you didn't have to delay any gratification. My wife likes to amortize costs of things over time. "XdollarsxXdays is only like a latte a day and think quality of life!" Besides, two lattes a day is just decadent and you know you'll want the HDMI 3.1, 480hz refresh rate, and whatever Top Emission is that will inevitably come with the 77C23 anyway. Selling that 77C9 then will be as painful as the day you bought it and you're ultimately out 10 grand. You have to spend money to save money. Yeah. 65C9 now!

I, uh, hope this doesn't count as price talk.

Too bad some uhd hdr movies have raised black and some dolby vision movies have raised black vs hdr10 so bias lighting may hide some of that

On the official site, they use the same photos for the 55" & 65". I think they photoshopped to get the 77" photos and got the scale of the stand off by about 5%. It wouldn't really make sense for the stands to be just slightly different in size, so they are almost certainly all the same size.

bias light can also mask some of the stupid low IRE issues like vertical banding on oled when watching in a completely dark room, issues which lg will never cure. harder to pick up the jailbars with a bias light on. of course you no longer get the floating black effect of oled, but it's a tradeoff to mask some of the low IRE flaws. black may be perfection on oled, coming out of black is far from perfection on oled, so a bias light can have its place with oled. also find that a 6500k bias light strip with a mild light intensity attached directly to the back of the tv works better than placing a lamp few inches behind the tv.

And if your low IRE or tinting issues are severe OOTB, you can forget about the comp cycles doing anything to address that.

I noticed the same thing and have the same question. I am moving in 30 days or so and will have actually have a dedicated HT/sports room, and a 77" C9 is top of the list. Stand size does matter though.

CNET C9 Review

CNET C9 Review:

Highlights - "Reigning picture quality champ notches another victory. The LG C9 OLED TV has better image quality than any television we've ever tested. It delivers perfect black levels, wide viewing angles, superb uniformity, accurate color and a great bright-room picture. Video processing is slightly better than last year. It adds HDMI 2.1 features and support for Amazon Alexa and Apple AirPlay 2 are coming soon. Its striking design features a super slim panel."

Both scored 8.9 overall. Peak brightness number comparisons are interesting. It seems real scene peak brightness inceased, but peak highlights and full field white went lower. They measured the hdr 2% and 10% windows on the c8 above 900 nits, the c9 is around 850 nits. On a perceptual level, imo the c9 generally looks a tad brighter and the colors slightly more saturated with hdr, however in scenes with lots of white on screen (like a hdr skiing video), the c9's ABL works more aggressively than c8 resulting in slightly dimmer whites.

One of the things I appreciate about the C9 vs the C8 is the far less aggressive dimming of the C9 on channels with logos. Additionally, the persistent brightness of the logos is easily controlled with the logo dimming control. I found my C8 never worked properly in that regard and adjustments in the SM had no effect.

In terms of overall ABL, I see little to no difference between the C8 & C9.

^Logo dimming has to do with ASBL,which is completely different from and independent of ABL.
