God never heard so much tripe as when a oled is on HUKD.Probably from people copy and pasting internet jargon and don't own one .Every person who sees my non 4k oled says its the best picture they have seen ,and no mention of nits either .

Reported dupe.

You should help out in the original deal, not steal it for yourself.

Should beat it by £20 according to their price beat policy.
Getting a lot closer to my bite point.

Does anyone use one of these for gaming?

Just want to know if there's any major input lag.

Just ordered the c6v variation, thanks! Apparently the input lag is down from 60ms to more reasonable 33ms after an update. I'll use it with my ps4
Also FYI my quidco tracked at 10 quid

I get OLED blacks are wonderful but what about peak whites? Is this Dolby vision 1000 nits compliant?
Thanks OP! Target price hit.

HDR10 is 1000 nits Dolby vision is supposed to be like 10000 nits. This tv hits around 650 but OLED tv's have a different threshold for compliance than lcds. I don't have the figures but I seem to remember OLED only has to reach 500 nits to reach the rating not 1000 like lcd.

Long story short HDR looks really nice the deep blacks make the lights seem brighter. There are better HDR tv's available though.

Edit - found the figures UHD certified
"Minimum brightness and contrast ratios: This is probably the most interesting one, as it's great for consumers and shows the different players here at work. There are two possible minimum specs. A minimum brightness of 1,000 nits, along with a black level of a maximum of 0.05 nits (20,000:1 contrast ratio), or a minimum brightness of 540 nits, along with a black level of a maximum of 0.0005 (1,080,000:1)."
I would say owners of £1k+ LCD TVs most likely have a higher nit rating than owners of oled TVs...:p

Nope. Normal tellies are about 300 nits. Dolby vision requires dynamic metadata vs HDR10 static metadata and 1000 nit of brightness. 10,000 nit full screen would be 30x brighter than your current telly, would be like staring at a 100w bulb and would probably blind you.

However I wont deny OLED is pretty. Its very much an ultra extreme 2016 technology, whereas Dolby Vision is much more future proof. Its worth keeping in mind when spending around £1500 on a telly to last you 5 or more years

I've just ordered the Samsung UE65KS9000 from
JL for £2k with free sound bar but had been looking at the LG OLED65C6V, with the extra £100 off its now £2599 - which do you think is a better set?
Undecided this or the c6v same price with 3D not particular of curved screen ???

But normal telly's don't have zero blacks like oleds do they? Surely it's all about perceived brightness.
Mega deal but would go with the C6 all day. A better screen with 3D.

​​Bought the B6 which is 27.5 ms over the C6's 35 or something and have to say its great for gaming no regrets. The added detail also gives a great advantage to be honest.

Just looked back at the c6 thread and it's only got 25 degrees same price?
absolutely brilliant price but am I the only one put off oled by the horrible aggressive ABL it uses? The tv's look amazing in the store when they're showing colourful patterns against a black background or dark scenes but in real life viewing when there's any form of bright picture on the screen then white's dull down to look so dull and even slightly grey. Twice i've bought an OLED now and returned it for that reason. Sky sports news is a prime example because it has a lot of white on the screen. I know oled's have amazing blacks and great viewing angles but the horrible dimming on bright images just puts me off 700 nits is all well and good but dimming down to 150 when there's anything bright on the screen (which lets be honest is a lot of the time in real world viewing) is terrible

700nits on 2% of the panel, 500nits 25%, 250 nits 50% and 150nits 100%, standard brightness is even lower. That's fine as you'd never want to look at a 700nits image, but oled are not the tv to buy in bright rooms.

Also the to latency sucks so it's not good for fast paced gaming, though it'll appear to be good due to the great motion handling compared to most lcds.

The other thing is screen retention.... if you plan on using it as a monitor or have static images on it.... don't.

Your text here


LCD is far brighter, the top end ones at this price can 100% at 800nits, they have great local dimming, great low latency and no burn in.

So oled isn't the best for everyone, but people are being marketed into believing so. Samsung and Sony are producing great lcds, The Sony 930e is better than this tv and it's blacks are so good thanx to the great local dimming.

I'm in a similar space myself....more likely to go Samsung myself as it has far better response time for gaming (which also translates into action / panning etc in movies) and I have read a lot of disappointing reviews of OLEDs (screen blur and burn etc)
The swines have put the E6 up £100. I'd have bitten at a sub£2k e6

Is the Sky Q deal still active with the purchase of an LG OLED? Checking on the LG site, it would appear the deal finished 28th March but on the Very site, they still advertise it and in the other OLED thread linked too a few posts above, someone else managed to get Sky Q thrown in for free.

I wasn't talking about what the TV's are capable of just what the Dolby vision standard is designed for. You can read more dolby-vision-white-paper and Dolby Vision vs HDR 10

Quote "Dolby Vision also aims to master films for 10,000 nits of brightness, which to put things in context, is vastly higher than how standard Blu-ray and broadcast television are mastered, which is just 100 nits. HDR 10, on the other hand, masters for around 1,000 nits depending on the content"
hope it's better than my LG - footy with vertical banding - needs returning - plasma all day but sadly can't get one.

Everything I've read says the B6 already supports Dolby vision - it certainly seems to be used in reviews of Dolby vision.
