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

Order placed on a 65" C9–my first OLED and first to HDMI 2.1. :D Hope to have it in about a week. HERE. WE. GO.

Congrats! Thinking about the 77” C9 myself although I’m curious to see how it will compare to the new Sony A9G Master Series. I really like Sony’s motion handling and their ability to clean up digital streaming sources / content. I wonder how the new C9 will compare in this arena?
Also I’m curious to see how these new 2019 OLED panels will do when it comes to vertical banding issues which was quite bad on most of the 2016 - 2017 LG panels. On a 5% window it was just terrible to behold.

We want 5% slides as soon as you get it...haha. I think I'll pop for a 55E9 for the bedroom once they drop later this year.
I'll be sure to add impressions as soon as I can. There's great impression in the C9 calibration thread from the Value Electronics calibrator.

Really interested in finding out if the vertical banding issues are greatly reduced in the new 2019 C9 lineup. If you could please put up a 5% Grey window when you get your C9 and let us know what you see that would be great. The Harry Potter movies are a great source to view the vertical banding issues as well.
I’m actually very interested in the 77” C9 and the Sony 77” A9G Master Series but the vertical banding issues will be a big player in my decision. If for example LG made big improvements in the 2019 panels it would be good to know.

PS: I suppose Sony could also use the 2018 LG panels in their new 2019 OLED displays if no screen improvements have been made. In that case the C8 or C9 displays would also be the same as far as the vertical line issue is concerned.

Do you have the sku now?

I emailed my guy today at Magnolia and received the same answer. Expect the TVs in the warehouse on Fri or early next week. I think once they receive the shipment an SKU will be created.

Ah ok. I thought your status had changed when you created the thread.

By warehouse you didn’t mean your actual store

Even though I picked up a Sony 75Z9D open box for a steal a year ago from Best Buy, I am getting the itch to upgrade / side grade back to a 77" C9 OLED. I would rather get a 77" Sony, but it doesn't look like they are going to have the latest and greatest tech that the C9 will. I'm interested to see what the uniformity 5% slides look like.

Yep the 77” C9 is very attractive from what I’ve learned. However if the 77” C9 and the Sony A9G Master Series have the exact same screen in regards to the vertical banding issues - being (Greatly Reduced) then it’s going to be a difficult choice. I love Sony’s motion handling and video processing it’s really top notch. However I’m really hoping that for LG’s new C9 they copy this technology from Sony. But I don’t know how realistic that is for these new C9’s.

I’m in NY and the TVs are shipped to Minn BB warehouse.
Someone in the forums suggested I should start an owners thread so here we are. Won’t be long before we have our new TVs.

I look forward to reading everyone's reviews on the C9.

I've been saving up for the C9 for a few years now. Using the 5% back on the Amazon Prime card - built a nice little credit ; )

Anyway, I've got an itchy finger to pull the trigger for the 65 inch but will wait for the reviews first.

How about letting it be used for a few hours and enjoyed a bit before making someone take pictures of dark grey slides?

Maybe he is the type to not look at that stuff and he is just going to enjoy his set ;)

This will be my first OLED. I passed on a great deal from ShopExchange for a Sony A8F to get a 65" C9. HDMI 2.1 ranks high on my consideration list, since the upcoming Sony PS5 should have HDMI 2.1.
Our Military deserves a great price and better......

So far I believe the panels are the same as last year so I don't expect any change in banding.

well that's disappointing, however not surprising. Looks like 2019 will not be the year I replace my C7, damn.
