The one i saw was the same, quite thick looking from the side angles. Unless they make significant improvement in the retail model, what I saw was slightly better contrast than the average FALD while less brighter than the brightest lcd's , like the sony zd9 or zf9, and weak motion algorithm. In overall terms, just not close to oled. You can wait and see the retail model for yourself but I would not be optimistic without caution. Instead of waiting for this, i would rather recommend to anyone to just get a lg c9 or c8 (which is cheap now).
The tech is interesting regardless of the display maker and whether their motion processing is good or not. Obviously, if you have to buy today, you can't buy it. Whether or not it ends up cost effective vs. OLED for manufacturers you want to buy from (for motion processing) is not settled, but give it a chance.
