Updated SW File (Version 04.71.04):

LG NanoCell SM9800, analysis: HDMI 2.1 is a weapon to convince gamers and moviegoers, but it also has other solid advantages

Well got my replacement 75SM9000 yesterday (first 1 had a smashed screen)

First impressions very happy. Massive leap coming from a Sony 850c.

Screen seems good, no DSF I can see with grey background.

Yes abit of blooming with HDR but nowhere near as bad as some people make out with local dimming set too high and only really noticeable with extreme black background and txt.

Mounting that beast on the wall was a challenge along with getting it out the box 😊. I'm sure a Samsung Q90R is probably abit better although that set isn't without its problems but since paid £1750 Inc 5 year warranty that's a massive saving over the Q90R.

Hi guys,

I'm about to buy an 49SM9000 for 729€, it's the cheapest "future proof" I can get here in Portugal (HDMI 2.1, 100Hz, 10bits, dolby vision, dolby atmos, etc). I'm aware of the local dimming problem but how can I reduce it? (I've read the entire thread, but I can't find the post in which someone detailed how to reduce it, was by disabling HDR?)

Best Regards

If possible, with the new TVs rolling out soon, the SM9800 will start to come down in price .. why £999 here in the first place is a mystery as £730 in France. But you happen to see deals of this TV being £700 or less in UK please post here:smashin:

As per my request to official LG S.A.T. they confirm me 55sm9800pla F.A.L.D. (Full Array Local Dimming) has 20 lines with 10 Leds each one. Total 200 Leds.

yes it is possible that the 55 inch has 200 leds but does not mean that it has 200 zones because in the Polish test that I posted previously he said to have counted 5x10 = 50 zones (65 inches = 96 zones) and the 55sm9000 has 4x10 = 40 zones! ;)
to confirm ...

Hi guys RTINGS says:
Update 04/05/2020: We've received a report that firmware 04.71.25 disables G-SYNC on models that weren't supposed to support it. We're unable to retest it at this time, but we'll update the review as soon as we can.

Do you confirm this s**t?

I've never seen a firmware on the SM98 that "enables" g-sync. You could manually turn on g-sync in an unsupported fashion in the control panel, and the latest firmware did not prevent this from working.
