    I think it will be exactly the same. I'm guessing this kind of issues will be cured in future series.
    Of course is just a guess but that was always the case with other manufacturers too. Remember blobing, vbi etc with panasonic.
    And now, we can see that tinting continues with 940v which is basically a 930v. The issue , IMO, lies in the panel.

    As it pertains to the darkening edges, we haven't seen any flat 4K models yet, so let's not make any haste judgements.

    So LG EG910V is the direct follow up to EC930V?

    This puts me in a difficult position since I just ordered a EC930V yesterday.
    Do you know if EG910V is likely to have the same panel with the same tint issues?

    Some reviewers claimed the 4K LG Oleds were not affected by tint but I don't agree. The EG960V have pink and green tint too so should I assume that will be the case with EG910V also?

    Where did you see tints on the EG960? Must have been a broken set because the tints are gone as confirmed on my former and other owner's sets.

    Are they killing demand by their stubborn insistence on the curve?

    I even seen tint on the 65" 4K model, pretty bad on movies like Interstellar (the snowy scenes). That's why I´m wondering if you guys think this new EG910V will have the same panel as EC930V. In that case I might take the 930V but if fixed ofc I'd rather wait :)

    Well I don't know if it really does. Someone hinted at it but I don't think anyone really knows for sure. Seems all LG OLEDs still exhibit the tint though, but if there is any hope at getting a tint free display with the new ones coming it feels like it's worth the wait.

    In ******** article that you're talking about:
    "Tinting of white>FIXED"

    The days of green and magenta tints seen on the 55EC930 are gone. Believe it or not, I don't care.

    You've been claiming the 960V has a tint upon the basis of a still photograph, and trying to promote that claim on an Internet forum, despite overwhelming testimony from owners and professional calibrators like ******** that there is no tint?

    Why not wait until you've actually seen one in the flesh, huh?

    Alright, maybe the camera makes it look worse than it is.The 960V still looks much better at uniformity than the 930V in that picture. I wonder if that has to do with which series the TV belongs to? Because it seems like EC models all have tint (even the more expensive 4K 65") while the EG seem to have less or in many cases no tint at all. Can we assume then that the EG910V will be more like the 960V in uniformity than the 930V?

    No offence meant here and we all ask repeat questions but this line of questions are the subject of many posts in these threads. May I suggest you take some time and have a read as you will surely find it interesting.

    I ordered the LG 930V last night and just saw that this new 1080p model (EG910V) will be coming out in a few months, at a similar price. I know it's a bit early to tell, but do you guys think the EG910V will be "next gen" (like improved motion, uniformity etc), or the same panel as 9300 but different stand and other small tweaks?

    How do manufacturers usually do it with annual models? Thanks

    Since the 940 has the same panel as the 930 All odds goes that the 910 has the same panel aswell.

    Agree im more n more tired of oled issues. Avs Home teatre geek podcast thats out now on the tv shootout is more impressed by LCD tvs than the 960 with its faults.

    OLED with its faults still beats LCD into a cocked hat in my opinion. LCD's great hope would appear to be HDR and even then it won't cure the not as good blacks, poor off angle viewing, blooming etc.
    Does OLED need HDR? Not as much as LCD it would seem....

    The two new models are being paraded as more affordable sets but current pricing makes that a joke. The obvious question is will they be cut down in some way as 'value' sets?

    iMagic has never been impressed by OLED (and was the same fellow who was ensnared by the Panasonic marketing dept. into believing they'd eclipsed their final generation plasma PQ in one LCD generation, ha), and you'll have to pry the Kuro from JWhip's cold dead fingers, I'm afraid.

    In spite of that particular 9600's failure at the shootout (in one category really), it still ultimately won the crown, meaning it provides the most visually arresting experience of the lot of them.

    I don't know about LCD and HDR. I mean, how does high dynamic range content look on an inherently low dynamic range LCD TV?

    I think there's a certain amount of wishful thinking in the LCD forums. The good HDR sets at CES/NAB were super expensive models and prototypes. They are not the sets AVF members will be getting.

    The tints seem like a sore point for many users on this forum. Based on what ive seen from the lg 960v it still has the same problem with tints as 930v. This is actually what My first returned 930v looked like:


    The same can be seen on that website i was refering to earlier, althouh in a milder form. Regardless of what the author states. Im not here to cause offence to anyone, just to debatt issues from a detached, objective point of view. The 960v have the tint. Question is wether 910v will have it too.

    No it doesn't.
    I know what it looks like on the 55EC930, checked it on my EG960 and saw none of the same tint problems.
    So what now?

    So the person who made the clip makes no mention of any problem such as tinting on the 960, but based on a moving third-party video look at this set you proclaim that there this, and extend this as a blanket statement to suggest its endemic among 960 sets even in the face of owners and professional calibrators who tell you this is not the case?

    Have you even seen a 960 in the flesh?
