So how's the OLED?
But now I'm glad my wife didn't let me buy a 65" - she keeps flowers and stuff on the mantle - imagine what a sound reflector that would be! So far I'm running it in defaults other than turning some Auto stuff off. Blacks and colours are remarkable even though I have no UHD sources, let alone HDR. Upscaling is very nice - I'm using the Oppo BDP-95 to take DVDs to 1080p, and the TV to take them to 4K and they've never looked better. There is still some motion blur in fast action; the Samsung plasma in the bedroom will remain my go to for hockey. I was a little shocked at the cheap captive power cord - but what can you expect for $2999 Canadian delivered, mounted and installed? Even after I buy a UHD player, replace the old Anthem AVM 20 pre-pro and have it ISF calibrated the total bill will be thousands less than the Elite was 14 years ago.
There's a good chance my next TV will be OLED, but hopefully my 65" Panny ZT60 will last a while yet. Or at least long enough until 65" ones are cheaper. :-)
I found a setting in the CNET review that eliminates all "soap opera effect" and motion blur from the video. It is as simple as setting TruMotion to "User" (custom) and using the default settings. Why this isn't the default setting for the TV is beyond my ken. I honestly see no reason to prefer my 2015 Samsung plasma for action now. Currently I'm watching "The Fellowship of the Ring" and see no artifacts.
