Panasonic JZ OLED Series Owners Thread

1. So HDTVTest mentioned in his review that there's slight motion interpolation applied at all time, even with IFC off (same for Sony btw). Did anyone actually notice that it's doing something? Anyone coming from GZ/HZ series noticed smoother motion with IFC off?
2. Is IFC for 24 Hz content improved in any significant way? My main issue with it on HZ series is that even if I set it on minimum then in fast action sequences with lots of cuts it tends to slow down a little sometimes or even slightly stutter (chase sequence at the beginning of Casin Royale as an example) I wonder if it's been somehow improved.

1. No. No.
2. Yes, tried on min and no stutter at all. However, I prefer IFC off for 24Hz contents due to introduction of SOE.

Very well for me. High quality mount, and very easy to install. Feels reliable. Just make sure no cables are in the way, so that the mount fully collapses toward the wall without obstruction.

I read above that two people here have bought the Sony SU-WL850 wall bracket for use with the Panasonic TX651500B. I read that this TV has 400x400mm VESA spacing but I see that the Sony SU-WL850 has 300x300 VESA spacing. Would someone comment as I am about to buy this bracket.

See my last post about 400x400 and 300x300 Vesa differences
It's pretty straight forward. The bracket has to accommodate the VESA spacing of the TV, otherwise it won't be suitable.

The WL850 is a proprietary bracket which is "designed specifically for use with Sony Bravia A8, AG8 & AG9 models" which look to have a VESA spacing of 300x300, so presumably it'll only be suitable for the 65" JZ1500 if it is also 300x300

Has anyone here had both a HZ and JZ series? I love my 55HZ1000 and its got the best near black handling ive seen but i need a 65" in the living room and reading about how the JZ is a little worse near black is concerning. It’s mentioned by the review here and also by Vincent Teoh. Is it noticeable for 1080p content like Prime, Disney and Netflix or is is worse content like 720p and even lower bitrate?

Obviously i know the JZ series is still gonna be good near black but would be interesting to hear from people that have experienced the HZ series and JZ if it's noticeable.

I've gone from GZ, rather than HZ, to JZ. I can't see any worse near black handling, but I do think Vincent and Co are able to pick up much more subtle differences than me. I also have the 55", which may make a difference. Cracking set imho.

Thanks. I’ve always been sensitive to these issues but if it's just minor differences it’s no big deal. But if it's as bad as the AF9 and AG9 were it’s a dealbreaker.

Yeah I don't know how the JZ would compare to those. I don't suppose there's any way to know if its an issue for you without testing one out, sorry
