Superb price indeed...could not believe it is including VAT. That’s a stellar price which last year TVs didn’t reach at all by August...impressive...we are getting very close to the £1k oled 55 (good oled
Thanks for posting this, we don't have a Costco near us (I think the nearest one is a few hours away) are they likely to have this at each warehouse or does it vary? Also am I right in thinking you need a membership?
'G' models are 2019, 'F' are 2018. The key difference is the 2019 OLED's from Panasonic have HDMI 2.1 vs HDMI 2.0 ports, a better image processor (HCX Pro), Dolby Vision support (previous year OLED's from them didn't) along with Dolby Atmos. Speakers are apparently also slightly more powerful on the GZ950, and as usual for nearly all manufacturers, come with an updated smart OS vs the previous year's models.Whats the main difference between the GZ950 and the cheaper FZ802
Uhhhh, no, the 2019 Panasonic’s don’t have HDMI 2.1. They have a feature from 2.1, which is ALLM. No eArc, No VRR, max 4k will be 60Hz.'G' models are 2019, 'F' are 2018.

It's worth paying the extra for this year's Panasonic models in my opinion - all good upgrades.
Fast camera pans usually show motion blur, it's something that cameras do. So not sure what you're trying to prove here. What you should do is pause the picture during such a fast camera pan, this will tell you if the blur is in the source or caused by the TV. Also I would recommend to disable all motion interpolation settings.
Not trying to prove anything. All motion things are switched off. I've attached a picture. It's paused for you. I'm just sharing my experience with a 1600 quid telly that imo isn't as good as my 550 quid 10 year old plasma on the same source. Shame my plasma switches it's self off :-( I'd have saved a few bob. Next you'll probably tell me that the picture doesn't show at least 2 or 3 images of the people in the crowd. The picture if taken while in UHD in normal mode which the retailer recommended with motion controls switched off and watching it is hard work. It maybe the source but I've had a new sky Q box and receiver fitted. I've gone from BT to Sky broadband and the wifi still doesn't work. So not trying to prove anything. The set will be replaced due to the wifi fault and I still worry the modern 1600 quid tv that might replace this one is no better than one much cheaper. Can you tell if the fault is with the source or the TV? The picture is larger 2 posts aboveFast camera pans usually show motion blur, it's something that cameras do.

Fair enough but that is a really good example of what it looks like in real life. I'll try a pause something later and take a picture. When I've tried to take other videos the phone has added more colours and smoothed things out so it's been difficult to say look that's what it's doing.You don't seem to understand what I'm saying.
If you record or photograph a moving picture, that picture will show the motion blur that is in the source + the motion blur from the TV + some frame blending if your recording/photo isn't in perfect sync with the displays refresh rate. In other words it's impossible to judge motion based on that.
If you photograph a paused picture it will at least tell us how much motion blur there is in the source, which would be useful information as opposed to what you did.
Have a gander at this image I've taken tonight Of Ben Stokes and his many hats. What do you reckon?Oled motion definitely is different from plasma motion. I'm often annoyed by the near instant response time sample and hold stutter when watching 24p content. I don't have a problem with 50/60 fps content though....
Well we also have an issue with the WiFi on this set so it's going back. That means we can no longer watch any of the apps. When it was working and we watched 4k footage we didn't think the picture was fantastic. And there were blurry spots. I can only explain this by saying when there is any depth to the image the TV of the source didn't seem to know what part of the image was the focal point so you got patches that were blurry.Do you get the same blur if you fire up some 4k sports footage on youtube via your tv app or from a USB stick? Basically anything other than your sat box & a sky broadcast.
And this TV gets highly recommended on here and a 9 out of 10 well the stand is just different:View attachment 1192802
The motion blur on this set is terrible unless we have a faulty set. If you watch a lot sport like i do go look at it in the flesh first. , The wifi unit has also failed on mine so I'm not sure if the whole set has issues or this is just how it is. So I don't know where to go with replacing it. Another one of these or something else. I've also been put off another Pana as the after care as a long term Panasonic fanboy appears to have deminished considerably.
