The big "How do I choose an HDTV?" thread.

My 11-12 year old 55" LG LED TV died on Saturday and was able to replace it with a LG 65" C1 OLED for $1360. Nice upgrade and have always been pleased with LG TV picture quality.

Nice!!!

I love my LG C1 OLED, but boy howdy does the auto-dimming get on my nerves. I've disabled every other flag I can find, and it still decided to go extra dark during a late but important scene in Prey.

So I ordered a service remote to be able to disable the TPC and GSR features when I plan to enjoy movies.

Since I am in the market for a C1, what does it do? The auto-dimming just bounces around depending on what is on-screen? That sounds pretty annoying.

It auto-dims aggressively during Critical Role and it's a bit maddening, but it looks so good the rest of the time I just sigh heavily and deal with it.

Weird. Mine auto dims when I pause it but I haven't noticed it during while there is movement on the screen. Maybe it uses some strange algorithm.

With Critical Role, there's an overlay to divide up the screen; Matt Mercer (the DM is on the left pane, and then there are upper and lower panes for cameras for the other players. I'm guessing there's enough there it confuses the screen into thinking the static parts of the image need auto-dim to prevent burn-in of some sort.

It's never dimmed watching anything else, so it's just a result of how they arrange the screen for CR.

Ah, ok. That makes sense.

Our Samsung can be annoying when a scene is jumping back and forth between like a darker close up and a brighter wide shot. Was watching something with a lot of courtroom scenes that jumped between close up on witness and wide shot of the lawyers and it just couldn't keep up but I couldn't find an option anywhere to disable it.

Also for the Bombcast, and many other things where the 30%+ of the screen is unchanging for a couple minutes.

I haven't noticed an issue with aggressive dimming (or any dimming) with my C1 OLED while watching movies and TV as of yet. I have watch thru my Roku and thru the LG apps on the TV.

The picture Quality has been top notch as all my handful of LG tvs have been.

It was nice to find how easy it was to stream/cast from my PC to my TV over WiFi by just clicking on connect in Win10. Sound switch from PC to TV/receiver in a flash. Will make watching certain movies easy without any 3rd party apps/hardware. TV is a few rooms away and the connection was solid.

My old TV was not this smart.

I haven’t noticed that on my C1 either but I don’t watch streams like you are mentioning with big chunks of unchanging content on the image.

Good lord a 97” OLED HDTV would be glorious. I can’t imagine the price but that’s almost projector screen size with superior picture quality.

Article said most likely cost the same as last year's 88" - $25K
