Jarod Reddig says:

To the guy that keeps leaving his laptop on planes…..come on man!!!

RXP91 says:

What percentage of content does everyone think they’ll view in HDR? The good news is that SDR is pertty much perfect on the OLEDs now, especially with the compression noise reduction on low brightness areas.

I find that people are obsessed with HDR when there’s little content, the content that is already out there hasn’t been graded properly and colourists are learning a new art.


best informational Source I’ve seen LG OLED 2017 thanks for the broadcast

1Aquadon says:

@ 58:50 you guys mention input lag at 21.5Ms but was that in ((HDR)) GAME MODE ? and double checking that was that the E7

Quincy Sloan says:

George Lynch says:

LG are a terrible company i had light bleed issues with a new 55 inch tv and they said it was normal !!! so all LG are made with faults according to them, buy LG at your Peril. LG customer service is crap, not interested. DO NOT BUY LG !!!

FrakU2 says:

At least 3D will live on in projectors. I just don’t understand the hate.

RKoen2006 says:

I wanted a 2017 Oled tv but they got rid of it so I bought LG E 6 3D is amazing on it my only complaint is the motion on the oled and it’s not 1000 nits.How is the motion on the 2017 LG oleds has it been improved that’s my only gripe about my tv if I went with LCD I would have to deal with light bleed and the picture degrading on the sides of the picture and Samsung is asking to munch money for their edge lit Qled sinks know how it can be better than oled and heard there is still some light bleed but I will not judge until you guys give a true review of one!

pieter bijma says:

on my tablet it goes up to 720 60 p but on it depends on device youtube supports 4k on smart tv

Paschal Mokw says:

Wow, 21.5 input lag. thats a reference point there. I hope the less models have the same values.

Jim Long says:

At 9:15 “shot this image with a fairly long exposure” and “this is a live image not paused”. You lost me there. BS factor on this show is huge.

no 3D = no sale for me
