thought id share (very briefly) my experience with LG OLED and i'm about to give up now .
so 2 months ago i bit the bullet and got a C7 55' and returned it 7 days later with very dim pixels in left top corner. It was replaced with the most gorgeous panel i've seen and i said WOW this is more than i was expecting. colours/black levels/banding all very amazing and i thought i hit the jackpot.
now bear in mind this has completely spoilt me as i sat in awe every night even watching 480p and being impressed. then 6 weeks later with a few bright flashes and lines it just died.
lg assessed and said i should return to store and get a replacement.
attached are some pics of banding which was clearly visible when watching the football.
I returned it to the store and they offered to replace again which i refused thinking maybe the store received a bad batch.
So i went to a different chain store who had a B7 on promotion so thinking well there's a bargain and its the same pic quality with a different look, why not ?
after setup and tweaking i already noticed the panel wasn't as sharp and detailed as the C7 especially the football ( the grass blurred on panning motion. never happened on the c7 )
there is banding and some strange circles on the screen ( are these causing the loss in sharpness) and also the up scaling was nowhere near the c7 either.
so 2 questions arise did i get a bad B7 or are there inherent differences in the electronics that we dont know about ( the Panel is the same but internals differ )
should i just give up already ?
