No more LCD for me
Posted by: richiep68 from: Nanuet,NY on
Picked up the LG OLED65C6P last Sunday. I have been waiting ever since it was announced. The colors are insane. The tv is awesome. PROS: color, blacks, no more edge light spotlight I had with my Samsung LCD. Passive 3D glasses without batteries,love that. The best viewing angle is, every angle is the perfect viewing angle. Super thin curved is just beautiful. TV remote is cool. Its universal, but you cant program your own buttons. CONS: The TV is perfect, once you get it setup correctly. I keep seeing over processing, which drives me crazy. I tried setups on You Tube, but there dark and yellow and they all said turn off the motion. After some playing around I finally found the sweet spot for flawless picture motion. Best setting is judder to 4 and blur to 7. After I did that, the TV was perfect. My only other complaint is the VUDU app doesn't allow 4k. Whats up with that LG, an 4k tv app without 4k? Lucky for me I have a Roku4 attached to it and it allows UHD 4k VUDU.

Best TV money can buy.
Posted by: Dave from: on
I could nerd out going into all the tech specs of the 2016 C6, but if you're like me you've already thoroughly researched it and know it's capabilities. I had last year's model (EF9500). As impressed as I was with it, the C6 blows it away. The addition of Dolby Vision (how widely this will be used compared to HDR10 remains to be seen), wider color gamut and brighter light levels for greater contrast make this a phenomenal TV. I wasn't sure if I would like the curve, but it's very subtle compared to most curved TVs, so you'll barely notice it. I've actually gotten used to it and almost prefer it to the flat models now. The C6 can do 3-D (unlike the B6) and is the same price, so I definitely prefer it's versatility.
If you have the money for it, I can't recommend this TV enough. If you haven't done much research yet, I recommend you do it since everyone's situation, preferences and budget is different.

Cutting to the chase, the OLED65C6P is a great television in my opinion. The image is clear, colors are crisp, blacks are deep and whites are vibrant. The OS is easy to use, having a simplified version as well as a more detailed one with more options. Chances are, if you don't see this next to the LG UHD, you won't notice to much difference, but the image on this is beautiful. The curve is not nearly as pronounced as say, Samsung's, and I barely notice it.
While not everyone cares for 3D, I enjoy it. 3D content, both native and converted, look great. The depth settings can adjust to the viewer's liking. The interlacing effect I noticed in my old LG passive 3D was non-existent.
As for HDR, setup was my only issue, but has since been resolved. In order to play HDR content, there is a setting buried called LG HD Ultra Deep Color. This must be enabled for the HDMI port HDR content will use otherwise HDR WILL NOT BE DETECTED. I realized this when my XBOX One S said the set failed the 10-bit HDR test. Once I enabled the LG Super Duper Color thing, it was fine. Netflix flashed "HDR" when it started. Gears of War 4 did the same. It may be already enabled, but mine was not. Of course, don't forget the compliant cables and additional devices as well.
I am absolutely satisfied with the OLED65C6P

Better than plasma
Posted by: 67stang from: on
I originally purchased the 55c6p, but after 3 weeks I exchanged it for the 65c6p. Bigger is better. Thanks to my local Best Buy team for a seamless transaction . I was bummed when my plasma called it quits. They don't make them anymore. After months of reviews and finally seeing an OLED in person, I had to get one. These tv's are pure eye candy. The color/inky blacks/contrast blow my old plasma away. Bought a 4K bluray player to go along with the tv. So far, every 4K movie has been an eye popping jaw dropping moment. This tv does a very good job of upscalng 1080p. It also displays 3D content without any issues or eye strain ( at least for my eyes). I have not noticed any judder or blur issues yet . I can always go into the expert settings for adjustment if that issue pops up. The tv is somewhat reflective so it will pick up background lighting a bit. Just pretend you are in the movie theater and turn the lights off. I give this a 5 star rating because I have not found any real cons yet. I have only viewed 4K/1080p bluray movies on this tv, so I cannot comment on how other sources may look. If you can afford it, get one, you will not be disappointed .

Canceled the Sony XBR930D I had on order because I had some concerns so I purchased this LG to replace a Samsung JS9000. This is by far and away a better TV with better picture and awesome 3d. Everybody in my house is enjoying this TV

Worth the little extra cash
Posted by: Reppster from: on
After nearly driving myself nuts over the past month trying to find the perfect new TV to buy myself I finally decided the "Go big or go home" approach and get the 2016 OLED and i couldn't be more happy with my decision. First off I will address that the OLED has a slight reputation for having "image retention" when there is a static image that displays on the screen for long period of time and I was concerned about this at first but after using my TV normally it really was a non issue for real life usage. You can see a small image retention (If you go stare at the screen from point blank) for a brief period of time but this should not be confused with "BURN IN". There is an option in the settings to clear panel noise which works great. Onto the speakers, the speakers are par at best, nothing to brag home about but my guess is if you're buying this TV you probably will have a sound system of some type and will probably never even use these. Now the fun part! The picture quality. Seeing this in store is one thing when you see there ever looping demo videos. But once you get this baby home and actually use it you will be blown away with the blacks. I know it sounds silly thinking about how good a black can look on a TV but not having to deal with any type of light bleeding on the sides or bottom or the clouding effect from LED makes the viewing experience that much better. The contrast levels can not be matched from any other TV at all. I came from the Samsung KS8500 and noticed a huge difference with the quality of the OLED. Gaming is also very good on this TV. I tested out Gears of War 4 and Call of Duty 4 remastered and both played extremely well and the level of detail with the blacks and overall experience felt very immersive.
For a closing note this TV is fantastic and delivers a great picture for a premium price. If you can find this on sale like it was when i got it for $3000 don't think twice about it. BUY IT!!! Also don't read into to much of the tech in depth reviews making certain things sound like there are issues with image retention. Its not even an issue for the naked eye when viewing normally. This is easily the best picture on the market.

Time to upgrade My UN55HU9000
Posted by: Skipper from: on
I was looking to upgrade my curved UN55HU9000 to a 65" model, but Samsung discontinued their 3D. I then looked at the LG OLED65C6P and purchased it right away. The 3D was phenomenal. I see why Samsung discontinued 3D, no competition to LG. I like the menu system, simulated 3D, and the lack of the external box better than my Samsung. The picture is better than the Samsung, but not by as much as I hoped (Oversold myself), but then again it was the top of the line for Samsung. For me, its all about the 3D...

Great plasma replacement
Posted by: sleepydog from: on
This TV is a great replacement for the high-end plasma TV I've owned for several years. The OLED contrast, absolute blacks, and generally amazing picture quality are a fantastic upgrade to plasma.
If i had to pick nits, I'd say that the TV is a little too revealing of bad content: compression artifacts are much more visible on this TV than they were on my old set. But, given a good signal, it's amazing.
Some people have complained about motion issues or said that the set crushes blacks. I've found that disabling all the various picture settings (such as TruMotion, RealCinema, etc.) yields a nearly perfect picture, with no motion issues added beyond whatever was in the source material. The set does crush blacks out of the box, but that can be fixed with calibration.

This is an excellent Tv for someone who likes to watch movies using an ultra 4K DVD player with HDR 4K movies, blacks are perfect and the colors pop, however for watching regular Tv (ex using a cable provider like uverse the Tv does not get bright enough like the Samsung SUHD tv and the oled blacks work against you. If watching movies in the dark using 4K DVD player is what you want this tv is for you, if on the other hand 80% of what you watch is regular tv this tv is not for you and other tv's like Samsung would be a better choice. Other features like magic remote, streaming all work well however could not get my Sony DVD surround system to sync with the tv for some reason.

HDR and static images are fantastic!
Posted by: Cinderella from: on
I've always loved the OLED TVs and had been watching the prices for several months - they vary over $1,000. I really wanted a 65" and I could not really find any details on why the G6P and E6P were so much more expensive. I have a sound system so I didn't care about speakers. I've never had a 3D TV either, and even though it seems to be dying out - I wanted to try it. Before I purchased I'd have rather had a flat screen (B6P) but opted for the C6P to get 3D instead - for the same price as the B6P. Also opted for the 65" instead of a 55" E6P - as there was very little price difference.
So I picked the OLED65C6P up on sale at Best Buy on the post-Thanksgiving sales for $2,700 + tax. I also was on the waiting list to pick up an OPPO UDP-203 4K HDR Bluray player. I have some other OPPO devices and so it seems I was early on the list and I placed my order the day I received the email. The UDP-203 was delivered just before Christmas! So I've had the TV for 7 weeks and the 4K/HDR Bluray player for 3.5 weeks. I've watched a lot of movies on it!
I'm not an expert at AV calibration - but I do have Spears & Munsil's HD Benchmark discs. AIX Records Audio Calibration disc. I've been through the basic setups that do not require additional equipment to do measurements of the screen. Out of the box the calibration was pretty close - only minor adjustments to all of the static settings. I'm using 4:4:4 and color depth at 10bits which this TV supports. I've struggled with judder, more on that later. So the calibration is at least decent.
I have a very dark room and generally I'm the only one watching the TV - so I can sit centered. The off-axis viewing is quite good - but the curved screen is going to have limitations if you're trying to watch football with many people and some out at the edges. But if you're at a reasonable angle - the image is superb. Also, if you have a bright room, the curved screen can pick up reflections from all over the room. For my situation - getting the 3D instead of the flat screen was the right choice.
3D is fantastic on this screen. Clear, detailed, bright - passive glasses work fantastic. I've watched the following movies and fully enjoyed each one: Avatar, Underworld - Awakening, The Hobbit - Battle of the Five Armies, Star Wars - The Force Awakens, and Gravity.
4K/HDR Bluray's I'm basing my comments on: Oblivion, Jason Bourne, The Secret Life of Pets, Independence Day Resurgence, Ender's Game, The Hunger Games - all four movies, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
First off, don't bother buying Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon in 4K/HDR. It is full of noise and is very poorly done. Just stick with the Bluray. I love this movie ... but I had to turn the TV's noise reduction up to high in order to even get the 4K/HDR version to be viewable. The noise is pervasive in the actor's skin through huge sections of the movie. I could tell the HDR was better than the standard Bluray - but this was a poorly done 4K/HDR movie.
The blacks and dynamic range that come through with these movies is really good. Ender's game has a lot of battle room scenes with black space. Gravity also stands out in this regard. The detail is stunning - particularly on close up shots of actors faces. I watched Oblivion last night again - and this stands out. The HDR does seem to come through very nicely; there's still detail in the dark/clouds during lightening strikes. Dark regions (not empty space of course) carry more detail in them.
So far, great TV! Static photo-like scenes, e.g. Blue Planet, are also stunning.
The struggle I've had is with fast movement and Judder. I typically leave TruMotion, Real Cinema, and Motiona Eye Care settings OFF. If I turn some combination of these on it will smooth out the motion nicely (eliminate judder) -- say of someone moving in front of a detailed background. However it then creates artifacts in the background right around the person or edge that is moving. For my eyes, I'd usually rather tolerate the judder than the edge artifacts. That said, the good news is that, you can find settings which balance these two effects. Sometimes I make an adjustment after a movie has started. But then I will get into a mode of viewing where I do not notice (or only rarely notice) the motion issues. Thus, my positive comments above with several movies that have motion.
There are several tests in the Spears & Munsil's HD Benchmark discs specifically for this. Bands of bars moving past each-other. I can find a nice setting where the bands moving look great, but then the artifacts show up at the interface where the different groups of bands pass each-other. For the girl swinging in a hammock test I can easily make the girl and hammock swing smoothly. But in the process it completely fills the background behind the hammock with artifacts.
With cable/satellite sources (1080p - but everything is compressed these days) I generally turn on mpeg noise reduction to some level. You're just going to have artifacts here with anything that's fast moving. While I readily see them, my wife never does.
WebOS 3 - I love it. User interface to the TV is perfect.
There are plenty of IO connections.
I know the speakers work - but I never use them.
The TV packaging was really good - foam curved to the glass. I was able to do the assembly of the base myself (albeit a little tricky) and then get it up on my AV unit - it would help to have another person.
Would I have bought the 55E6P for the same price if I knew that the "E" would eliminate the motion issues? I don't think so. It would be a flat screen with 3D. However, I already sit pretty close to the 65" to get the benefits of 4K, going to 55" makes it even closer. I would not have spent another $1,000-$1,500 for the 65E6P, or another $3,000-$4,000 for the 65G6P, to eliminate the motion issues.
This is an outstanding setup. I am very happy with the TV! But I can't give it 5 stars.
While I'm here, the OPPO UDP-203 4K HDR Bluray player is great. All my SACDs still sound as good on it (and my existing speakers) as they did on the OPPO BD-105D. Maybe that means I need new speakers so I can try to hear the difference? My wife will love that plan. ;-)
