IMO, being able to load an internal LUT compared to external does not trump these items.
watched the comparison video. Some interesting points. Regarding player led and TV led, do you have some examples that are fixed player led and TV led for the LG, in 4K players and/or streaming boxes? This could impact your choice of player and/or TV.
Regarding BFI on the LG at max, I think you said that you could like that setting as being plasma like, but it would need a new calibration because of large brightness reduction and PQ/EOTF change. Would a special calibrated setting for that work for each SDR and HDR (from disc)? I assume in this case you would still have some motion artifacts because interpolation can't be completely disabled with BFI on the LG?
