C2 has the Evo panel. C1 panel is same as CX and C9.

 

Some C1s are being shipped with Evo panels. Obviously LG won't make it look like the panel of G1 but it means, the C1 can have a G1/C2 panel running under "spec" so that would mean that it has any efficiency/burn-in related improvements that come with the new panels.

 

You can even do some hack that makes the C1 think its a G1 and run the panel brighter although that can probably deteriorate it faster.

Yeah I felt the same, like the brightness is not enough. While watching in a dark room, my eyes are adding blooming. What panel did you get btw? You can find it by looking at the model information label on the box. OLED55C1PTZ.DTRQLJL something like that, the fourth letter after the period tells you the panel. P or W means EVO, Q or Y means normal panel.

 

I have a normal panel too 😭. QLED55C1XTZ.DTRQLJL . Date of manufacture is 29th Jan 2022.

Surprising seeing the brightness comments. I have C9 and even on it I have never felt that the brightness is low :huh:

 

Yeah I think I am adjusted to it now though, but yes the brightness is definitely not upto the mark. Especially in a dark room.

I suspect its more to do with the colors. When I switched to OLED I also felt that the brightness was less specially in DV/HDR content. But I was used to watching hdr stuff on my older tvs with vivid mode and the colors would just pop (unnatural obviously). OLED on filmmaker mode or DV mode doesn't do that and hence I think its more of a perception maybe ?

This may not be the only reason but yes I think this does play a factor. I am CONSTANTLY switching profiles in everything I see to figure out what to use and all modes except VIVID and STANDARD are too yellowish. But then I opened a video with pure snow and Normal and Vivid feels too blueish and completely unnatural. Whereas the filmmaker and expert modes look much more believable.

 

Definitely takes some adjusting.

Same. C8 here. 
 

Newbies to LG OLED, you can try turning off ABSL or whatever it’s called nowadays via service menu. Of course, it’s risky, so beware. 
Google “LG OLED turn off ABSL” for more info. 

^^Not risking this :scarerun:🙈

Okay so there is some confusion about the EMI I got from Vijay Sales. They said it's interest free EMI.

 

On cashslip it says payout after cashback = 117k, but then immediately below it says entitled for cashback 0? ICICI says it'll be 120.7k, VS says I'll get 3.6k cashback after 90 days but some other charges so total would be 118k. So confused right now :cry:

I am assuming some other charges is most probably service charge and GST.

It's weird but I think you are good to go, just keep this slip till the end of 90 days.

You'll get whatever is on the slip. If the slip says it's 0, you aren't getting jack.

Amazon has LG G1 for 1.40L.  Too good to be true? It’s Amazon fulfilled, so tempted.

At that price I'd wait for the C2.

Merchant cashback is not what you get, the shop f**kers are reading this incorrectly and scamming customers.. In your case it says zero so yeah its zero. If you want to pre-close the loan u can do it right now as no cashback will come and you can save some interest.

Also check start of the bill. If there is any kind of discount there for using card EMI, then you are definitely not getting any cashback. 

 

I also got fooled by Reliance Digital. They told me to not cancel the EMI for 90 days and wait for cashback which never came. I called up HDFC and they refused to pay anything back to me. They  said, that that merchant cashback has already been paid to the merchant. I went to RD to fight and they said that the sales agent gave me incorrect info. I was never supposed to get the amount mentioned as merchant cashback. I requested for the sales agent and they claimed that he doesnt work with them anymore.

 

So, if you want to save interest by cancelling EMI, do it now. Dont wait 90 days. Anyways the interest you will save by immediate foreclosure should be more than that cashback amount.

TV installation guy quoted 2600, but the engineer quoted 1300. Got a sealed LG remote pack from the latter, with invoice from LG directly.  

I got it for 1749 from LG

Matlab they can quote anything they want. :lol:

Did you get GST paid bill, I see base price quotes is 1481, and rest is GST. 2600 seems to be quoted as over inflated price.

Peeps with LG OLED, does the internal player play titles with DV + DA correctly in recent times (recent encodes) ? 

 

I have seen this issue cropping in the last 6-8 months - if a rip has both DV+DA, all I get to see are weird purple blue greenish tinge. Basically the TV is unable to read DV data. Most recent example would be Halo E1 - MKV. Not sure about the MP4. 

Noticed the same issue with all Disney+ Marvel IMAX rips (which got released in the last 5-6 months or sooner). Older encoded files work fine. 

 

Edit: MP4 works. MKV doesn't.

Unrelated but don't get me started about TrueHD sound decoding :ranting:
