      Hi steve,
      You mentioned wider viewing angles. Have you noticed any improvements?

      Thanks

      The colour accuracy appears better at more extreme angles but the contrast performance still drops off once you move off axis by more than 45 degrees.

      The main point of their demo was that their TVs can deliver the full colour volume of 1000 nits HDR, that means at least the full 1000 nits of peak brightness and the full 100% of DCI-P3. By comparison the OLEDs in the demo were capping out at around 600 nits, which means you will get clipping on brighter scenes. This isn't exactly new, we were aware of this last year but Samsung very effectively demonstrated it against a G6. Of course this year's LG OLED panels are brighter and can get to around 800 nits, even 1,000 nits in vivid mode, so in reality the differences in 2017 might be considerably less.

      and a little bit "marketing tool" stuff here as usual!

      800/1000nit our "real" comparison values or vivid colour or "Dynamic mode"(Mr.Steve mentioned this)

      we just want a "Natural" picture!

      but if someone need more or extreme figures,well its your choice

      meanwhile Samsung has a "patented"(TM) technic for "wider-angle apply" but this a TFT-LCD panel
      and wont give you more than 35/40degree! col.wash/greyness effects conrast drop after 35/40

      I completely agree and Samsung were also demonstrating their new auto calibration features that were developed in conjunction with Portrait Display/Spectracal to ensure an accurate HDR image as well.

      Do we know any rough ball park costs?

      I just this week bought the Samsung 9k series ... it's still sat in the box sealed. I'm thinking of returning and waiting for the Q9 series.

      Hmmmm decisions decisions
