  1. So we have professional reviews comparing the DV disc to the HDR10 disc with the following observations: Dolby Vision’s superior color and light management also produces a more refined contrast range. You feel aware of more subtle light variations in pretty much every part of every frame, regardless of whether you’re watching a dark or bright scene. The DV versions of the Despicable Me releases also deliver a clear uptick in visible fine detail. This is probably the most unexpected benefit of Dolby’s format, but there’s just no question that every single frame of the DV image looks more refined and textured than it does in HDR10 mode on the same OLED screen. Also startling is how much more dynamic images look in Dolby Vision on the Loewe OLED than they do in HDR10s. There’s markedly more punch in small HDR brightness peaks such as the white strip in Vector’s orange tracksuit and the numerous reflections in the Minion’s glasses and goggles. And then the Fate of the Furious (C7 this time instead of the Loewe) Colors look more natural and precise, there’s more subtle shading in color details (which has the effect of making many shots look sharper than they do in HDR10), and there’s usually a more natural, life-like feel to the contrast that further enhances image depth and detail. Pausing any bright sequence in Dolby Vision and comparing it with the same shot in HDR10 readily exposed the differences as you toggle between the two. The differences didn’t appear quite as pronounced to my eyes as they were with the Despicable Me releases, but they’re still there, and they still mean that the film looks consistently more refined. For the record, I used an Oppo 203 and LG OLED55C7 TV for the Dolby Vision testing, plus a Panasonic UB900 running into the same OLED TV for comparisons between Dolby Vision and HDR10. I even used two copies of the Fate Of The Furious so that I could more easily flick between the two. So unless one has two players in two different HDMI inputs on an OLED (one with the HDR10 disc, and one with the Dolby vision Disc) then pause the same frame and switch between them, I cant take Evolution's anecdotal "Having seen a couple of Dolby Vision films, I can't say the difference is very substantial, if at all" evidence seriously.
  2. I'm guessing you havnt seen Dolby vision on an LG Oled?... It is a more than subtle improvement over hdr10 on an OLED, and I think all the major film studios except 1 have officially announced support..
  3. BenQ w1090 is $899 with 2x 3D glasses or free bulb... Makes it $810 with the 10% off sale... Prob best picture under $1k... If you really can do Max $500 there's bound to be a refurbished 1080p of some description on ebay
  4. Not sure which Plasma you had but I would say it would be half the brightness or less of the 2017 OLED on 100% white. OLED and LCD are so much better than Plasma for a PC Monitor in many ways. 100" OLED cant be too far away. Id actually consider buying 4x 55" Oleds to make a 110" 8k screen using a high powered PC and Video card if they were completely borderless. But anyway, back on track (dont want to derail thread). Sony did an amazing job with the Z9D and showed what could be done with LCD. It was as if the engineers were given a task of creating the best possible LCD Display device without worrying about a budget.
  5. 2017 Oled does 150nits on 100% white with ABL. 150nits is still too bright for me when using PC. I would need sunglasses to use a PC monitor at 600nits but each to their own I guess. I have a 65" 2016 Oled which I use as a PC monitor and dont find ABL an issue. Having said that the Z9D is better in some ways than the OLEDs and if I had a bright room I would probably have gone Sony.
  6. Excellent unbiased comparison. Pitch black viewing with treated walls and ceiling OLED is the go. Light room, the choice becomes harder. (Pick your poison)
  7. HLG support added to LGs 2016 lineup with new 5.30.02 firmware
  8. Yep i can relate to this. On dolby vision oled light is set to 50% yet some whites look brighter than normal hdr mode when oled light is set to 100.
  9. Yeah I have a 65" Oled and Dolby Vision looks absolutely stunning. Perfect shadow detail and insanely good picture. Colours look amazing (for me Hdr10 usually didnt as look good with more saturated colours etc.).. Problem is that it's made normal Bluray seem very mediocre. Hoping Dolby Vision becomes a standard. I just started watching a French cooking show on Netflix (Dolby Vision) and got caught up in quality of the picture. Sensational.
  10. Yeah I have an oled. I remember my gt30 plasma which had good motion resolution but I found phosphor trailing took away from it a bit. Better than the older plasmas I had but it was still there. I actually find the oled motion really good despite having the lcd sample and hold lower motion resolution. It's to do with having a 1ms pixel response time (there are no phosphor trails like with a lot of plasmas, and no pixel smearing like with slower response lcd) . So in hindsight I realised I had more of a problem with the trailing or smearing of colours on moving scenes than the actual motion resolution.
  11. Yes but they both under the same light and both set to their standard vivid settings. Also both watching 9HD... Trust me the margin in the Hisense is about half of the Samsungs... Im not saying the Hisense is a great TV (I own an LG Oled) and would have to have it for a few days in my room to properly audition it. Just found it Interesting that the picture looks much more premium than last years 58inch. It also has the slight glossy glass look on the screen like the 7000uled series whereas last years 58inch had the matte screen.
  12. Spent a bit of time having a look at the Hisense. Its actually quite high contrast which was surprising. Noticeably more punchy than the 55" Samsung base model 4k next to it. The Samsung looked washed out compared to the Hisense (Both had 9HD playing). The Colours on the Hisense were much more accurate than last years 58inch on default.
  13. Yeah the 20 series and below had the black level problems (after a certain amount of hours Panasonic have something built in which changed the voltage going to the panel and the blacks became grey instead of black). There is a way around it but its a bit of a headache. If i was you I would get a 30/50/60 series if you want to stay with Plasma.
  14. A way to get high quality smooth Motion on any TV is to use a PC with Dmitrirender or Svp for interpolation. Very useful for budget TVs.
  15. Are you thinking of buying a 2016 hisense? ... Why not the 58N5 2017 model?..it can be purchased for around $900 and im sure there are a lot of improvements over the 2016 model.
