Yeah @sprinta it’s always a hard call, but this year for LG the jump is decent compared to previous years, now it doesn’t have the heatsink, so will be interesting to see how it differs from the Panasonic’s implementation.
There may be other benefits to the evo panel..maybe...
Normally it is iterative, and if evo didn’t exist you may be better off going GX and enjoying the money. Shouldn’t be too long to wait to see if it’s worth investing the extra cash.

Hopefully they've sorted the hdmi 2.1 handshake issues.

Suffering from "no signal" issues intermittently on both an E9 and CX with a 30 series graphics card.

I guess a good question to ask is if you sat a 1000 nit max panel next to a 800 nit max panel, fed from the same source, say sky SD and HD programs and 4K programs, would you actually be able to notice any difference?

Whilst the panels may have different max nit levels you would not be watching at those levels all the time, which would controlled/dictated by the program requirements or would the higher nit panel provide better brightness and contrast etc?

a 1000 nit panel next to a 800 nit panel would only be noticeable on content that needs and uses that extra brightness such as HDR content. SDR content whether SD/HD/4k wont make any difference really. With HDR though anything that has content on screen graded at between 800-1000 nits will show more detail at the higher brightness.

not really a review like techradar suggest, but they did mention the new processor being pretty good in the C1 series here:

Hopefully that's some kind of silly vivid mode, all the whites look severely blue.🧐
I think the G1 is the one to look out for from LG :)

Very much what I suspected. So unless you watch a lot of HDR programs you are not necessarily going to notice that much difference between the new Evo panel and the existing CX/GX panels. As far as I am aware there are not much HDR programs available in the UK at present?

The new Evo panel would likely to have better near black performance and better uniformity, along with increased brightness. This is a 2nd gen panel so we should expect better performance in all front.

LG announces the global roll out of its 2021 TV lineup

Great news, hopefully LG start shipping screens next month while the demand for TVs is much higher due to lock downs.

Unlikely to be available before end April/May. Might see some reviews before then?

Well currys had CX oleds last year as early as March, just limited low stock levels so could still be possible.

And LG have been ramping up OLED production greatly due to higher OLED sales and demand also.

Guess if anything we are bound to have reviews or stock levels April/May in europe or uk.

yeah none of these so called "reviews" are actually good as no one has had the TVs in hand yet to test. Im looking forward to Vincent to get hold of the G1.
