LG OLED65E6P OLED Ultra HDTV Review Settings

Unit-to-unit sample variations, the viewing environment, and the source might render these recommendations less than optimum. They are provided only as a potentially useful starting place.

The settings here that are most likely to translate reliably from one sample to another are those involving specific features with only a few setting options, such as Color Gamut, Gamma, and Noise Reduction. The ones most likely to be subject to sample variations are video controls offering a wide range of settings. This will be particularly true for color temperature, white balance, and color management adjustments (where available).

We strongly recommend that you find the optimum basic video settings for your sample by using one of the many display setup DVDs that are available, such as Digital Video Essentials (DVD) or DVE HD Basics (Blu-ray). A full calibration, particularly of the gray scale and color gamut, is best left to a trained and properly equipped technician such as those certified by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) or THX.

One would hardly expert an expert reviewer of high performance vehicles to knock the latest Porsche or Ferrari for being "still expensive"; quality is and will continue to be at a higher price. Even in today's "everyone gets a medal" world, some things should be just high enough to make us reach a bit harder for the things we really want.

It would have been great if the 3d performance was better detailed in the review...

You say OLED as organic light emitting diode and does not require backlighting but LED also stands for light emitting diode, so why does the latter require backlighting?

With LED sets, you are looking at an LCD panel with LEDs creating light behind it. With OLED, you are looking directly at a panel of Organic LEDs creating light.

It's because companies selling LCD sets wanted to give them a new buzzword. Sets branded as LED use an LCD panel backlit with LEDs instead of CFL tubes. Some of these are edge-lit, some are directly backlit with arrays of LEDs that turn on and off when that part of the screen is dark. CFL backlights were just constant light, and the LCD panel had to block that light for dark scenes

Plasma ruled in the early days of 720P and 1080P.
However LCD's eventually overtook the market due to cost to quality ratio versus Plasma. Simply put Plasma looked great but way to costly compared with LCDs.
OLED look great in a dark room environment. However their visual impact is highly reduced in daylight environment.
What we have currently is the same battle of Plasma vs. LCDs of
2005-2010. Now OLED vs LED (LCD improved).
Cost to quality ratio will again eventually determine if OLED will win or at least survive.

Not sure how you enter these values? You show 10 sets of values (lum R G B)', but the lowest value I can select for lu is 50, so his to enter values for 19-40? These are under white balance sub menu. Is the first number 10-100 the IRE value? If so is the second number target luminance or adjusting luminance? Target luminance default is 50. Is that left alone? Is the lum value for adjusting luminance?

Enter values for 10-40 typo

I just buy it, but how can I view my smartphone screen on my TV?
