Did you test your "FABU" OLED screen for banding using brightness test patterns at 5%, 10%, 20% and 50% ?
Did you check it for blue/green/pink screen tint using brightness test pattern at 100% ?
Did you check it for DSE using grey test patterns ? Did you check it for burn-in and are you going to set the brightness control very/very low with dim picture to avoid burn in as some owners are now recommending ? Aren't you concerned about LG's own recommendation that to avoid widescreen bar burn-in owners should always set the aspect ratio to full screen if the content is different than standard 16:9, never mind the director's intent ?
Aren't you concerned about leaving "pause" for too long unintentionally when watching content on your TV and the results that might cause ?
Looking at the OLED thread for "screen uniformity discussion-banding and vignetting" all i see are those horrible pictures so many owners are posting and the general attitude that seem to be one of disgruntled acceptance.
If my Sony 940E looked anywhere near what those posted pictures of OLED screens look like i would have returned my set immediately as unacceptable.
Sure, the 940E does not reach the black floor level of OLED screens (although with measured 0.008 nits black level the 940E offers near true "black" to my eyes and many reviewers), it is capable of displaying much brighter highlights and luckily my set does not have any of those "pesky" issues i mentioned above.
Good luck with your purchase and perhaps you should ignore all i pointed out above and simply do what so many owners of OLED screens are now recommending : do not ever test your screen using test patterns as they might show poor screen uniformity which will lead to severe owner disappointment.
