    Is this "new" method the same as quantom dot tech?

    No. Currently it is thought more to be like two liquid crystal layers stacked on top of each other, but noone outside Panasonic knows for sure.

    In other news, the HDR fix for LGs OLED sets is already trickling out according to Flatpanels.

    Re: LG is working on a gaming lag fix for its HDR TVs

    It sounds like a fix for TVs with "8bit + FRC" panels, where they essentially mix colours by flashing different coloured pixels in the same position......I guess the processing time to calculate each colour creates the lag.

    Damn annoying as I have been looking at 4K HDR TVs and had struck off the Samsung KU models and was starting to look at the LGs.......seems I'll save my pennies for a full 10bit panel

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otixQ3p_NXM Avforums seem to thing this is an awesome tv for the money. It has 4k hdr and it's 65" and all for less than 800 in most places. http://www.richersounds.com/product/...0/hise-65k5510 Richer sounds have it with a 6 year guarantee(is that the same thing as warranty?).

    Re: LG is working on a gaming lag fix for its HDR TVs

    Good news for many owners - I have been pushing people away from all of LG's 2016 sets as they all have problems this year..the LCD ones have some nasty black/back light issues prevalent across the range, and the OLEDS have input lag problems

    Currently the best buys imo are the Samsung 7500 or above - would be good for LG to sort these issues though as there really isn't much competition at the higher end right now given Panasonic + Sonys lackluster offerings.

    The 7000 is the same as the 7500, just the 7500 is curved. With Samsung, the x500 denotes a curved screen. Apart from with the 9000. So anyway, 7000 and 8000 are flat, everything else curved. I think you might mean the KS series, these are the SuperUHD ones, with UHD Premium certification

    Correct I meant the 7000 or above - curved is just personal taste for some people
