    what is this dude talking about., as a danish shareholder in LG, find it ludicris that LG keeps paying this fool as a promotion shill. No Linus LG OLEDs have not become brighter year after year, actually, some indications they to some degree have been tone down a tad on some aspects.... not least on Scene Peak HDR and SDR brightness, and likely a precaution to circumvent perm retention. Take a look at rtings values over the years. example. CX SDR peak 321 nits. C7 (2017) SDR peak 383 nits. CX HDR scene peak 681 nits C7 (2017) HDR scene peak 720nits. and the B7 for 2017 even peaked at 822nits .on 2% window, so what the flying fxx do you talk about. 0:15 (brighter, last significant step were from 2016 to 2017 ) and same with the ABL dimmer, it is the same 140 to 150nits of full white.(not saying that is bad in OLED regi, most competing-models are even lower on ABL, like Sony's gorgeous A1 OLED line. let me paint it for you, since 2017 its mainly been features people have been getting on newer models, and it's been more or less the same WOLED panel as in 2017. actually, LG OLED 2017 line had a few things where it was better, - 2017 LG OLED line was that year were all models had the same SoC. Take pixel response-rates (quite important and something were OLED-tech shines) 2017 C7.. had unreal fast response rates, 80% 0.1ms and 100% 0.2ms /source rtings / and that has been tone down and is like 5 to 10x slower now and in the +1 ms, likely to prevent studder on content with slow framerate, Another thing where the 2017 LG line shined, is on UI interface (sockets).. the 2017 LG OLED were the last that had bonafide USB3 with high power delivery. Now it's all USB2 and that can be a problem' if you wanna see a high bitrate UHD Blu-ray-content from fx an SSD or perhaps wanna show from an SSD some of these gorgeous OLED promo videos, that are quite demanding but looks mind-blowingly good.. Same if you wanna use a mechanical. 2.5" hard drive with some TB-storage' to fx record on or play from.. here can USB2 often not supply enough power and you need to piggyback ride with extra power. So yep, a shame they have removed USB3 since it was the norm on 2017 models., but it is like you don't understand all these things when people have in mind' how many modern TVs you have your hand on these last years (many), and not even once' noted that they all now have USB2 only. you even were so blank to criticize the USB2 port on the Xiaomi see-thrue OLED and where Xiaomi was honest and actually write the standard on the USB port, and that was hilarious, as that clearly showed, that it went completely over your head that all these OLEDs you have checked in the last 3 years... in fact also only had USB2 even though LG is going very silent about it and are not putting a USB variant label on these sockets but even if LG told you or you did your homework and checked it, no chance in hell a backbone bending shill like you would inform it. According to display specifications.. the last OLED with fast bandwidth USB3 sockets was a 2017 line and with a USB3 socket, you could use it for a dock. as it had high power delivery. Same with the LAN port, which sadly also is 100Mb and been like that for more than a decade, and here USB3 would be a helping hand, even though I don't know if LGs OS will accept gigabit USB3 sockets.. Can ben seen under connectivity: 2017 OLED B7 (USB3) www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/846fad7 2018 Wallpaper W8 (only USB2 from this year 2018 and forward, USB2 is now standard) www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/01e011b5 2020 OLED CX (only USB2) www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/e4991de9 and here even the GX (only USB2) www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/bdaf1de6 Same with the insane ZX9 8K OLED (only USB2) www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/c8191d63 and here the coming 2021 EVO G-line (again only USB2) www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/5b302315 so yeah hilarious when this Linus, was shocked to realize that his Xiaomi see-thrue OLED to 6grand, only had USB2 when you have in mind all his other 30k LG OLEDs also only have USB2 these years, but he clearly don't make due diligence about these products when he hasn't even picked that up and USB2 been the norm since 2018 on these OLED TVs.. uslikes.info/house/oYSGzK6NrYeDZNQ/video.html (USB2 really??) but give it time and him or his crew will likely tale notice from an post like this)

    "It has all kinds of cool stuff in it." Maybe so, but I'd rather just upgrade from my 720p T.V. to a television with a higher resolution. (Personally, a 4K T.V. with HDR10 would be cool.) If I want to do anything fancy, like streaming video, I'll just use an external device, such an the Xbox Series X.

  45. David Gantenbein

    David Gantenbein7 days ago

    It’s about HDR. HDR is the new big thing that improves picture quality, BUT it needs high levels of peak brightness. So this increase in brightness is not to have a generally brighter picture, but to create higher differences between bright spots and dark spots. And here is where this 2nd generation comes into play. The LCD TVs can be way brighter than the OLED, that is why LG invests into making OLEDs brighter so that they don’t get outcompeted on HDR in the future.

    The truth is that I already lost the trust I had with LG. I bought an Oled with 12 months warranty, after 13 months it stopped working, the TV was connected to a stabilizer and only accessed content from the internet. I went to 3 official services, the cost of repair was equal to 90% of the value of a new TV. When I contacted LG directly, they answered that it can simply happen in a low percentage of TVs and that they could not do anything.

    I've watched this video on my still fresh CX (not C ten 🙃), and it puts smile on my face. I don't regret buying it a tiny bit, as it's a marvelous piece of technology making gaming much more immersive and satisfying. I'm happy for the future C/G1 owners. I can hardly imagine significantly better screen without "reference" / "signature" in its name and a cost of a car. If/when my parents' TV breaks, I'll surely get them G1 or its successor.

    My main concern I was hoping they would mention, is burn-in. Same ol', or new tech to prevent? I got rid of my last LG OLED because Windows burned in the icons over 4 years, oops. While using a screensaver more often should fix that, I just don't like anything that gets burn in. I moved back to LCD (the LG nanocell lcd whatever), just because it seems to work better with a PC hooked up.
