Order just placed so guess it's time for a thread.
Don't the "C" and "B" use different processors? B...LG α7 Intelligent Processor. C...LG α9 Intelligent Processor. Seems just as poor a choice to put these two 2018's together in one thread, as it did in 2016...with the "B" having a different processor and no 3D. Leads to confusion and frustration. The "B" should have it's own thread. The "C" should be grouped in with the other models using α9 Intelligent Processor. Why repeat the same mistake year after year?

I'm with Kenbar who set up the other two threads though I question the point of already starting that B8 thread when that line doesn't even have a price or release date.

I sure hope it won't be a situation where there are 3 billion different threads on these sets.

I set them up in the hope of avoiding multi threads and a repeat of confusions.

Agreed. Changed to C8 and E8 I would think the W folks would want their own. Thoughts?

I would think so...while it uses the a9 processor...and PQ should be the same as the C8 up, it's a much different unit by design.

Lol...giving up a 3D Oled. I'll not part with mine till it's beyond repair. Would not trade it for even a 2018. But I would in a heartbeat if they had 3D.

I think the street date is March 19th, so still ten more days. Hopefully going to pick mine up that day from BestBuy which I put a deposit down. I think someone said they are already in the warehouses in the US, just waiting for the 19th.

There will never be a complete "fix" as you call it until all displays can display the entire 10,000 nit range that's already being used by many HDR games. You either clip/compress those bright details between 700-10,000 nits or you dim the entire image to keep everything visible.

According to German previews, "Active HDR" style dynamic tone mapping can now be enabled in game mode. This helped boost HDR movie brightness in 2017 sets so I suspect it will have a similar effect on most game scenes in 2018. BFI blur reduction has also been confirmed to work in game mode. Unknown what additional lag either feature introduces.

I think some of what he is talking about may be in reference to Windows 10's ahem, "lackluster" HDR functionality. It is still quite a mess unfortunately.

The only way I can even get HDR to work on my PC for games is using madVR and placing the game in borderless windowed mode.
