My understanding is these use passive 3d. One pro reviewer, I read somewhere, commented that it was the best 3d he had seen.
I'm still waiting for my local BB to put one of these on display. When they do, I'll take a pair of RealD3D glasses and a 3DBD of Tron and Gravity with me. Hope they are willing to let me use them.

The Passive 3D with FHD to both eyes has been deemed the "best they've ever seen" by several reviewers and owners of the LG 55EG960V in Europe.

Yea, I was disappointed I did not have more time...and the sales guy was too. Both of us were excited to see the new set...and run some 3d on it. At $9000 it's not something I can afford any time soon. But with some price drops down the road...might be something I "must" have. Not in any terrible hurry however. Or at least, I won't admit it

Macro shot of WRGB pixels on an OLED panel showing content. Not new, but interesting.

On another forum some members are asking about the differences between the 65EC9700 and 65EG9600 so I thought I'd provide the answers here.

Here's what I know.

EG9600 vs. EC9700:

1.) 10% brighter than the EC9700

2.) Quad core processor for faster Smart navigation, EC9700 has a dual core processor

3.) Built-in Harman Kardon 20 watt per channel/2 speaker system, EC9700 has 40 watt per channel/4 speaker system w/2 subs (note, the EG9600's new pedestal stand is designed to direct the sound waves forward)

4.) 3 HDMI inputs all HDCP 2.2, EC9700 has 4 HDMI inputs, but only one is HDCP 2.2

5.) New anti-glare filter, no filter on the EC9700

6.) webOS 2.0, EC9700 webOS, but the EC9700 will likely be upgraded to webOS 2.0

Although not a spec, LG has improved the EG9600 CMS, screen uniformity and off axes color shifting.

At this moment Magnolia has the exclusive distribution and at the end of this month (May 2015) select authorized dealers that have placed firm orders will begin to get allocations.

Hope this helps clear up the differences between LG's 2014 65" 4K OLED and the successor model.

Defects wise, it seems you'll have a greater likelihood of near-black banding with the 9600 (versus just vignetting on the 9700). The former can self-resolve over time apparently but not guaranteed. This has been seen on the 55" sets, so hopefully the 65" surfacing now are better.

In this post, I noted that LG was not listed as a member of the UHD Alliance.

https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.p...&postcount=356

That has been corrected, and now LG is represented on the UHD Alliance Board of Directors.

http://www.uhdalliance.org/staff/sp-baik/

So, LG is now in a position to influence the Alliance in its determination of the HDR standard and it is likely that the infinite contrast of OLED will be in the mix.

Been spending some time following the AV and AVS LG EG960(0) owner's threads. Banding has been raised as an issue by some and has resulted in returning and replacing a few sets. There are some posts on AV forum from one member that is on his 3rd replacement. He posted photos of the banding or lack thereof on all three displays.

Do we have any mechanical engineers here? I have been wondering if these bands could be stress induced, since they seem to show up on either edge and near the center of the panel. If the bands are caused by stress, it could have happened during manufacture/assembly, packaging, shipment or by the consumer, while unpacking, attaching the stand or mounting with a bracket on the wall.

https://www.avforums.com/threads/lg-...#post-22091189


EDIT: A post indicating this might actually be a problem. Hope to read more about this.

"Yes I talked to LG about are issue, also with the service technician over the phone.

It seems now that the banding issue is caused by how the TV is held in the box, by straps or whatever when shipped."

Inkjet printing on the M2 production line. That should bring prices down for LG. Also Samsung and LG will enter broadcast monitor business to compete with Sony in 2016. Yield rates increasing on large panels. All good news for OLED.

It would use an LG panel, but Panasonic processor. If true, we should know in about a month.

Competition will be a positive for pricing and performance. Samsung will probably join in soon. The question is; will IFA see OLED displays rolled out by someone other than LG. I hope so.

EDIT: Re the retraction. May have been due to copyright restrictions for the CALMAN manual. One way to find out.

https://www.bing.com/images/search?q...419&ajaxhist=0


"Meter Mode (Target Display Type) CR and CX series - The Panasonic CR and CX series displays have a wide color gamut GB-r LED backlight. Select the ‘LCD (LED Blue Green DCI/P3 Gamut)’ Meter Mode for the CR and CX series. CZ series - The Panasonic CZ series displays are OLED technology displays. Select the ‘OLED’ Meter Mode for the CZ series"

Anyone still think this is a rumor?

Sorry, if this question has been answered before, I'm new to this part of the forum.

Has the tint issue been solved in LGs new generation of OLED TVs? I've read one review of the (british) 55EG960V that claims there are no tinting issues anymore.

My Samsung plasma is dying and I will soon need a new TV. I'm watching lots of black and white movies and the tinting on the EC series OLEDs is unacceptable for me.

Hey there people.

I own the 55ea870v and I'm wondering if you know if that one has forced DNR.
I hope not.

I see that the Picture Menu has an option for either Standard or Wide Color Gamut. Which one is best to select?
