What is everyone upgrading from? I'm coming from an XBR55X850C. Still torn between this and the 75 or 85 X950G. I'm sure either will be a great upgrade, just can't decide. Likely to be last upgrade for a while, so I'm leaning toward the LG.

XBR55X850C, Denon AVRX6300H, Polk RTi10, CSi3, 65RT, 70RT, PSA V1500, Oppo 203.

Just got my 2019 LG C9. Upgraded from a 2016 Vizio P series. This set is stunning out of the box.

Having said that, other than rtings.com, I have not seen a comprehensive breakdown on what settings are best for the purest picture.

I know it's usually best to turn everything off, but with the C9 there are some interesting options such as the AI picture option, Dynamic Contrast, etc.

What do the AVS experts think?

Getting the jealous bug going seeing everyone here either going with the C9 or the A9G. I love my C8, huge upgrade over my Samsung KS8000. I do game quite often, and watch sports more than I would movies and tv shows. What would some of you guys do in my situation? Wait until the new gen gaming systems arrive and upgrade then? Sony should have hdmi 2.1 on their next sets I would imagine and LG would not remove it. Or sell mine and just go for either set? I am inclined to try a Sony OLED out and this new A9G does have many appealing qualities over the C9.

I did not know Yamaha was saying they will be upgrading there higher end units to HDMI 2.1? I knoe Denon is doing the AVR-X8500H. Marantz is doing the SR8012 and the AV8805

Yea 65" is the biggest I can make work in my living room, came from a 55" so right there huge improvement and worth it. I am holding off getting this pro calibrated just because of the new gaming tech upcoming and will go for a OLED with 2.1.

I would beg to differ regarding the “A9G does have many appealling qualities over the C9”. What would they be?
Also you’re contradicting yourself. If you game quite often the C9 is a far better choice due to its HDMI 2.1 and excellent 13ms lag and VRR. I expect the A9G to be in the low 20s with its HDMI 2.0b. I had a major tech crush on the A9F but still went with the C9. The C9 holds its own PQ wise. I expect the A9F to have slightly better processing at best but nothing significant. Just my two cents.

I’m waiting until next year and the specs are released for PS5 and Xbox 2. I’m not buying another tv without making sure it covers what the next console will do.

I see some people getting the 77' C9. From what I've read, the 65' C9 actually has the better picture. Now, why exactly I don't know. Better refresh rates? Is the 77' using an older OLED panel? Am I right or wrong here?

I got in on the same deal many of you did today. C9 is coming Friday. I'm upgrading from an E6. Excited to see where things have come since 2016, especially on the near dark and tone mapping. Secondary bonuses I am curious to see is the increased brightness and processing.

Has anyone already posted suggested calibration settings or do we go to rtings.com

My C9 will be replacing a Vizio P75 but it's curious that no one has responded to us regarding calibration settings. I'm assuming it looks great out of the box or we're to use rtings.com settings? The Vizio had a dedicated thread just for calibration posts so that's why it's interesting that there is not too much discussion about it here.

Where did you read that? If there's some technical reviews showing the 65 to be more accurate after cal or hitting substantially higher nits, that would be interesting.

If you look a few pages back I took some macro shots of the 77" sub pixels and they look to be nearly identical if not the same as the 65" Panel. Everything else is the same too - chipset, image processing, refresh rate etc....so....other than a larger size possibly showing more flaws in poor quality content (ie highly compressed) if you sit very close (which I have not found to be a problem), I don't see how much of a difference there would be.

The immersion into films and shows I've found from the 77" is impressive.

I’m really surprised there isn’t more discussion on this. My wife was watching last night and called out to me there was a firmware update on the C9. Having been unhappy with the controversial C8 update when I briefly had that display, I told her not to install it yet.

So I’m waiting a bit.

Will be buying a 55C9 in a few days, can't wait.

I will be using it as my main pc monitor, and sitting 2 feet away from it :P

Been following this thread for ages, and have done so much research my brain hurts.

It all boiled down to hdmi2.1 4k120hz HDR with vrr range of 40-120hz and 13ms response.

The above video of that guy gaming at 1440p 120hz sealed the deal.

Not really worried about colour accuracy variations across different brands. I probably couldn't tell the difference anyway.

Now all we need is Nvidia to bring out a hdmi2.1 card.

We don't know what it fixed but it did add Amazon Alexa support and FIXED the VRR issues. If you play Xbox, I suggest you update. I haven't seen any issues with the firmware update.

There is no difference other than size...obviously the bigger the screen the further you should sit back to make sure you're at the appropriate seating distance for 77" screen. I don't know where you heard this but all 2019 LG OLEDs would have the same picture quality, there are no differences other than the B series which has an old chipset.

There is no reason to have HDMI 2.1 right now for gaming...sure it has VRR and ALLM (turns tv to game picture mode automatically)...but neither one of those really makes for a better gaming performance. The C8 has 21ms lag, the C9 has 13ms...sure it's an improvement but I don't you will pick up on that.

My honest assessment is just wait even though it's hard. When the new consoles come out, that will be a real reason for 2.1 to hopefully have native 4k 120hz games.

Could someone please help me out with some measurements? C9 65" Oled. What is the distance between the bottom of the stand and where the edge of the screen image begins.

My f8500 has just under 4". I'm thinking I'll need a couple black particle boards to elevate my c9 to make up the difference. So I may as well get them before the delivery.

2019 C9–E9 Owner's Thread (No Price Talk)

The Flatpanels review was interesting but weird. He alluded that the A9G had better processing which I’m not surprised but LGs motion is just as good. Basically said HDR is as good as the C8 but then went on (in length) why OLED tech in general is best for HDR.
I liked CNETs review better since they gave specific impressions on C9’s HDR performance. They do have an inside source at LG feeding them info, for example the “Dynamic Tone-mapping 2” naming.

What I am thinking as well, I mean the C8 does pretty good for input lag yes the C9 is the best but is it really worth me taking a beating on a year old OLED? I been lucky to get a good panel with no issues etc.

I had a major tech crush on the A9F but still went with the C9. The C9 holds its own PQ wise. I expect the A9F to have slightly better processing at best but nothing significant. Just my two cents.

It is yet to be seen if the A9G will perform better in certain areas over the C9, and those appealing qualities I speak of is the actual processor between the 2. The motion on my C8 does bother me sometimes in certain content. Only reason why I think about the A9G.

Frankly I think you'd be crazy to eat thousands of dollars swapping out a one year old OLED just to get not-yet-proven HDMI 2.1 features, since that's 99% of the difference between the C8 and the C9.

Sources for it won't even arrive until late this year or next year and the next gen gaming consoles where HDMI 2.1 will really shine potentially don't show up till 2021.

Wait until there's a source that will make full use of what a new TV can deliver and then, consider upgrading.

Some of you guys crack me up, I'm feeling guilty about replacing an 8 year old plasma TV since it still works and produces a great picture. I'm upgrading primarily to go larger and don't feel like waiting another year... but yes, there's still a feeling of guilt replacing something that works.

To know this for 100% sure, we would have to do a test in one environment, testing 5 of the 65" and 5 of the 77" at the same time eliminating unit variation which will be the biggest factor.

I am surprised they are still making the 55" to be honest. If you notice, history has shown the smaller units usually do not get the ultra high end build after time.......

A9G will probably be better in some ways but probably not worth the added cost on the street.......
