I couldn't find a dedicated thread for LG's 8K OLEDs and doing a search on this thread for 'zx' only returned 3 hits.

Why so little talk about these tv? Is it simply because they are so expensive, were produced in extremely limited quantities that practically no one managed to get them, possibly a combination of both or were there issues with the tvs that really haven't come to light and LG has been trying to suppress?

One thing I find maddening about these considering their cost is the stand situation. Why on earth did LG go with chicken feet for the 77" model instead of the extremely solid and nice looking stands of their B and C series? Hell the 77CX has it and it's by far a better option on a tv that's a fraction of the price of the 77ZX. I don't get it. For that kind of money the 77" stand option is a joke. Even worse is the stand for the 88", do people actually want that huge integrated monstrosity that the tv is attached to? Again why couldn't they fit the B/C series type stand. All they would have to do for the 88" version would make it proportionally longer.

I am coming from a Pioneer Pro-111FD, and was worried about the transition, but I too am loving my 65CX purchased through Robert of Value Electronics. It was a surprise gift from my wife for our anniversary.

As always, its a pleasure dealing with people as nice as Robert and Wendy. Value Electronics is first class and Robert is as passionate and knowledgeable about the products he sells as no one else I have ever come across. If youíre in the market, I highly recommend purchasing through them.

Does anybody have issues with Horizontal banding during HDR gaming. There appears to be several faint lines equally spread apart. Primarily seen during bright whites, blues, sepia. Really distracting when panning up on a otherwise beautiful sky on ghost of tshushima.

LG CX & C9 Unlikely to Get Fix for VRR Gamma Issue Caused by OLED Panel


In a newsletter published by the OLED Association, LG Display has confirmed that the VRR gamma shift issue on LG OLED TVs including the CX and C9 is caused by the underlying OLED panel. While the company is investigating the possibility of introducing multiple gamma curves at lower refresh rates, the fix will be hardware/ T-Con-based, and can only be applied to future OLED TVs and not existing ones.

Thanks to Mr Barry Young, president & CEO of the OLED Association, for giving us permission to cite the newsletter which is originally found here:

Something interesting. I matched game mode standard user settings to what I use in Cinema mode and the PQ is basically identical. No advanced color point calibration at all. This is good news since I thought game mode would suffer from worse accuracy while playing games, but as long as you match to a Cinema settings it will look identical.

Hey guys. So I own a 50Ē Panasonic ST30 1080p plasma. Itís served me very well for the last 9+ years. It still runs like new, has great picture quality, and hasnít given me any problems at all. In addition to tv and movie watching, I do a lot of gaming. And because of that, thereís some burn-in on my tv from the static images of the games. Itís not super bad, but itís a little noticeable when watching other content.

Anyways, Iíve been finally thinking of upgrading to an OLED for 4K capability and overall superior picture quality. Iíve been keeping an eye on the 55Ē LG CX. Iíve read a lot about it, kept up on the reviews, and have greatly considered buying one. With the Black Friday pricing on it right now, it seems like a good time to purchase one. My only true concern is potential burn-in on it, as I will use it to play games, in addition to tv and movie watching. Generally speaking, could it be any worse than how my plasma has handled it? I donít want to regret purchasing one if itís just gonna give me issues.

The LG CX looks like an excellent 4K OLED, especially for the price right now. I just donít want to regret buying one if thereís serious burn-in potential thatís worse than how my 9 year old Panasonic has handled it.

Thanks for any input.

Buying an OLED for gaming means you have a greater chance for burn-in than any display and/or use case. If you buy it from Best Buy, take out the extended warranty.

I would definitely get the extended 5-year warranty if I buy from them. Thing is, Iíd probably keep the TV for longer than that. If there is burn in before the 5 year warranty is up, would they replace the TV with a new one? Iím sure they have some stipulations.

LG CX Beta Firmware Fixes 4K@120Hz Stutter in VRR/ G-SYNC Mode


We demonstrate how the LG CX beta firmware 03.21.03 has fixed the high frame rate stutter between high-90s and 120Hz frame rates in VRR/ G-SYNC mode, so hopefully Xbox Series X, PS5 and RTX 30 Series owners can enjoy smooth gameplay at all resolutions and frame rates (including 4K@120Hz) in VRR mode.
