    Yep, G and W. Sony has the A1E in 77 too

    Basically the new red sub pixel is to help burn in and image retention. Not that it’s huge in my book. The 75-100 nits the 18 panels are brighter isn’t huge for specular highlights either. But it’s $9000!!! Lol.

    REALLY hard to consider OLED at those prices, when Way More Than Good Enough LCDs are out there for a fraction of the price.

    Sorry, but OLEDs are remaining niche. And might never live up to their potential.

    And OLET technology is still out there.

    I'm just doing my civic duty to delay any Big TV Purchase decision of yours, navychop, by giving you even more reasons to not buy now.

    ;)

    Nine large is up in the DLP LASER projector price range (and perhaps more than some of us spent on our first new car).

    So the "it" that LG is bringing this year is mostly lighter wallets.

    If he waits too long, his eyes won't be able to discern what wins there might be.

    LG series 8 OLEDs are awesome. The 3D LUT is not currently performing well and will add substantial artifacts to the image.

    Gregg do you prefer the LG or the Sony OLEDs?

    I look forward to his reply. But from what I’ve read, Sony gets better PQ from those LG panels using Sony circuitrythan LG does using LGcircuitry

    I got this one a few months ago
    LG OLED65C7P: C7 65 Inch Class OLED 4K HDR Smart TV | LG USA
    The picture is amazing. The chip in it was the same as its big brother and was rated top last year so the price along with size was perfect for my needs replacing a 10 year old LCD.
    Upgraded to a 7.1 THX cert receiver and just did the hopper 3 upgrade to go with it.
    I'm more than satisfied....LG is the way to go with regards to the TV's lately.

    Like many other things TV related, a lot of it comes down to your viewing environment. If you have little control over it, an OLED or cheap front projector perhaps aren't your best choices.

    If crummy source material makes up much of what you watch, something that exhibits better video processing than LG seems to offer is desirable.
