Got to see one of these a couple of days ago, the picture quality was superb, viewing angels perfect, the blacks was reeally black, but I did find two dead pixels, so I gues Oled can also have them as plasma/lcd. But I can't wait to get a 75" Oled in my living room..

With LG's 55EA980V, the black is perfectly black. So much so that it's impossible to make out the TV when watching with the lights off—even after your eyes have had a couple of minutes to adjust to the dark conditions.

As you can see from the images above, this OLED screen has viewing angles on par with plasmas. From 45 degrees, we measured the variation in brightness at just 10%.

And this OLED TV has still more impressive performances in store, as screen responsiveness is simply incredible! As soon as an image appears onscreen the previous frame has already gone. We've never seen such an amazing result from a TV! In comparison, the most responsive LCD TVs get ghosting times of 8 ms in our responsiveness tests, whereas the speediest plasmas get around 6 ms. The LG 55EA980V, however, pushes that down under 1 ms. That's so good that we can still hardly believe it!

Wish LG would give me a free one. Also, supposedly even the passive 3D impressed them. I know most people don't care about 3D, but it's a nice feature to use every once in a while.

Got to see my first OLED yesterday. Went to buy headphones at our standalone Magnolia. Finally got to your LG. I really liked it a lot. They were only playing an LG marketing clip but it was great to finally see it. The greens looked too saturated to me but would love to see a Blu-Ray on it. But that aside very impressive. Not sure if a motion issue on a couple of clips.


I must say I think the curved screen is subtle and looks hot to me. The whole set looks beyond sexy and pics don't do it justice. I am beyond fine with curved screen. 70 inches and wall mountable with curve would work now that I've seen it.


Need to see a movie! How is motion? Sports? Something looked a bit off at times like in the waterfall clip. Remember the beer signs with the waterfalls in bars or pizza shacks? Kinna fun to watch but also a bit cartoonish. Maybe just me or settings. Other clips looked great.


Congrad's on your set.

It was very difficult not throwing out any feelers. She just got here !




First impression in the 5 minute's I have had it, light, very light weight. They need to take the LED part out of OLED as the picture is amazing, more of plasma VT or ZT Panasonic quality.

Wow, just amazing....... Black levels are super inky, Off angle superb. What technology we have !!

Is it time to rename your business to "Cleveland OLED"?
Sound like the Plasma selection will be rather limited in 2014.


For the off-angle shots, you should have used the hockey game. The color shift is most apparent on white/gray images on the Samsung.


Will you be doing a full calibration and review on the LG?

Very nice blacks, but in the last picture is all that blooming really going on or is caused by the camera?
Looks like the camera; most likely a cellphone.

Camera. Chad will be here tomorrow to work his magic along with Buzz on Sunday. Chad will have a long time with this set, he will be in until Monday. Also, if there is hockey on tonight I will get that off angled picture as well.


---Any special requests within reason ?


---Yes in the next 15 days we will be changing our name........
Nothing else is Changing though

If you find hockey, record it and let's look for evidence of visible ABL. Hopefully it's not as pronounced as PDP. We'll look at the AVSHD disc ABL pattern as well.

We may have, well I guess we do have the new king, This LG OLED has black levels about 3 folds better than the Pioneer Kuro plasma. The Elite LED had better blacks than the Elite Plasma but there was plenty of blooming so some would say the Elite LED was not king. The OLED has little to no blooming.


---More testing to be done. I am sure there are some drawbacks as well..........more to come !!

Wow. I actually have money in the bank for a house down payment and I.......could.......buy.......this.......ARGH!!!!
Back in the day the Pioneer Kuro plasma was king. The 60" unit was the biggest made and "about" $6500-$7000 on the street.. People paid this price all day long to get the best. This unit is 5" smaller and now "confirmed" to be better in black levels by about 3 folds, yes its true ! Chad and Buzz checked the set out last night. This LG streets for about $7,500. With this being said it is higher in price than the old king, however it is not that far off. There is one key as well here, this is the first year of OLED. The main difference between the Pioneer Kuro days and today, is back then the economy was good, now it is not so good
