Saw this too.  Seriously though, has anyone purchased or used the warehouse 4k units in the field.  Specifically the Veon 55" 4k really. 

 

I'd like to know what they're like out in the wild, and have also been advised to check the field of view/viewing angle also, to determine how off axis you can go without it turning to crap.

Surely to be 4k capable it needs at least 1x hdmi 2.0 port.

 

 

 

Also, given I use the harmony remote system, I'd like to know if

 

a) it now has some sort of discrete input command buttons on the remote (as it's still not supported here)

 

b) you can get it to reliably turn on to the same hdmi input EVERY SINGLE TIME you turn the TV on. 

 

 

 

With a receiver handling the input switching, I could live with only using one hdmi input into the TV, as the harmony remote wouldn't need to send any other commands.  If it moves to another one (as there's been a suggestion that the hdmi 2.0 port is NOT input hdmi1 for example) then the remote won't know here it is, and won't have a discrete command to force it back to the right input...

The description talks about upscaling of blurays, which is what really worries me. If there is no 2.0 and hdcp 2.2 then that is all you will get. Perhaps some 4k 30Hz over hdmi 1.4 that isnt protected but not 4k from any current sources.

LG. OLED has the best picture when fed 4k, but the LG was the worst in upscaling material, esp SD which looked horrific. Their hardware looks great, but is let down by poor software processing. Not to mention the OLED pricing - I was looking at $7,400 for the 65". My next TV after this one will be OLED, but I will wait for Sony or Panasonic to get into the game. I didn't look at any LG LEDs given the poor upscaling of the OLED.

 

 

 

 

I have to disagree with you on the LG scaling performance. I bought the 55B6 to replace my Panny PHD commercial plasma (6th gen, pretty old) at a recent JB sale, and I will admit that most of the LG default picture modes have (IMO) excessive sharpening, which only serves to accentuate any faults with input material - especially SD. After playing with picture settings for a few days I have the SD picture quality to a point where it's better than on the Panny plasma, aside from the constant yearning for a UHD picture, but maybe that's just me.

 

I also had a HTPC feeding the screen with my DVD library, but the graphics card is an older (low spec) AMD HTPC-type card, and the scaling performance is not as good as feeding the OLED screen content directly (via DLNA, or PLEX). I'm sure other brands mayhave better up-scaling technology (I've heard great things about the new Sony systems), but for my purposes the LG OLED does scaling really well. And the picture with a Netflix UHD + Dolby Vision title is.... jaw-dropping.

 

 

I only viewed material on the factory cinema setting, so pleased you have been able to achieve improvement with further tinkering. A lot of reviews tended to suggest calibration yields excellent results on OLED. My next TV will be OLED, but I intend to wait a couple more years  before pulling the pin.
