I bought the tv purely on the reviews here and the first thing I did was buy the bias lighting.
Didn’t think it would make any difference but it really did.
I know the dimming is a personal taste but for me I have to have it off. My eyes cannot stand it, and it seems to be worse when I’m playing direct 4K material off of my panny player.
I have just been offered a good deal on an OLED though and I’m seriously tempted to sell the set. Tough decision to be made...
@Nessie1812 Well I can only wish you good luck if you do decide to opt and jump on the LG OLED wagon it's a whole new ball game!
Is this going to be a new OLED or second hand all I say is make sure you do your home work.
AVForums is absolutely littered with the amount of issues folks are suffering with OLEDs still in 2019.
It seems to me that if you get a "good OLED Pannal" it's absolutely perfect but otherwise you may be lumbered with problem after problems burn in seems to be the biggest issues. Their seems to be folks stating that they have had their new OLEDs for 6 months and suddenly they suffer burn in or banding issues.
In some respects having a LG Nano IPS panal have far less issues than OLEDs still in 2019.
Okay they are not perfect IPS Panals have their own fair share of issues but generally you know where you are with Nano Panals apart from my slight banding issues at the far right hand side of the TV its coming up to 2 years old soon September and nothing else has gone wrong in fact I would say with the last 3 firmware updates from LG HDR10 and DV preformance has improved quite considerably so the TV is actually preforming better now than it did when I brought it. So for me to claim on John Lewis warranty it could be so called "panal lottery" I could get the very slight banding issue fixed to find out I'm getting worse clouding or DSE effects so I'm not going to take that chance as the pretty much the TV is working flawlessly. I only notice like most folks the banding on the far right hand side with certain colours or pictures and unless you actually point it out most folks won't even know its tbeir.
So yes if you get a good deal just make sure warranty covers the issues you are most definitely likely to get on an OLED.
Otherwise all the best if you do it. I'm holding out for another year or so with the arraval if eARC now and OLED Panals coming down in price I may opt my self for a LG 49' OLED and prices will start to come Down a bit more possibly around sub-£1K maybe.
