LG OLED65E7P 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.

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). Unfortunately, such discs are not currently available for HDR, though we hope to see one or more of them this year. 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.

Never saw that before!

The 3D on the 2016 models was hugely better than the other improvements on the 2017 models, so I say they are "de-proved". I bought an extra 2016 model as a spare to preserve my ability to enjoy the absolutely stunning 3D on the 2016 OLEDs.

I agree no 3-D, means a lesser quality TV. I will be purchasing a high-end DLP projector in the future to get reference quality 3D.

3D was a contrived feature that the majority of consumers could care less about. I for one could care less about 3D and most people feel the same way which is why it is going the way of the dinosaur.

This review was so compelling that I recently bought this TV.

Two questions:

1) Can you please update with your recommended settings for Dolbyvision?

2) Were your recommended settings done with Eye Comfort Mode turned off?

I also get those vertical lines on dark grey full screen images. It seemed to go away after doing a pixel refresh, but returned a short time later.
