In the shop I found out if you turn on Clear Motion the tv will flicker like hell. It seems like a software error to me because it flickers soooo badly. It was a pana 65EZ1000. 

 

 

Annoyingly, I don't know why TV manufacturers including Panasonic have out of box experience mode setup in Dynamic nowadays with 10/10 backlit and set to cool rather than warm. I did update my firmware on the EZ1000 when I brought it home and for the 1 15 seconds that I had Clear Motion enabled, I did not notice the flickering.





Do whatever you want to do man.

NZ pricing is quite different from that of UKs or USs. If you eyes on the top quality TV range, LG C7 certainly is one of the best. But don't forgot the often very quiet mentioned Sony Z9D. For 65in it is at least around 1000 dollars cheaper than C7 if they are on the same discount. While on the US market no ones buys the 65Z9D because it is more expensive than C7. The RRP of Z9D is currently same as the new model 930E. 

 

Let me put it like this, Z9D is the best LCD TV Sony has ever made and probably will most likely be the last true flagship LCD tv of the brand. (For some reason, the review of rtings of Z9D is likely biased)

 

Interesting! I'd never even bothered pricing the Z9D because I assumed it was expensive to the point where I may as well go OLED instead. Added it to the list of my alerts:

EX780 is EX750 in euro, mostly none english speaking country, and Panasonic TV doesn't do US market, that's why there is few reviews so far. (not EX730 which is quite different)

 

Apart from being around "only" 600 nit bright, it is almost as good as samsung QLED, including color, black level, contrast, and motion. Apparently 50 and 58 inch size have better color than 65 and 75 inch ones, maybe those panels were from different sources.

 

By the way, on a very good sales day, if there is still stock in NZ, you can get a sony 65Z9D for maybe a little more than 5000. That is THE BEST LED tv ever.

Yes mate, NZ market, i cannot explain. It might be the only market on earth that 65Z9D is cheaper than 65OLED. But I got a feeling Sony NZ is not interested to sell it at all as the new 930E is the same price. 

 

So my suggestion is to buy it asap.

I've had my hands on a Z9, calibrated it's blimmin' good too!

 

The black levels far out performed any other LED's I've seen, the up-scaling is superb too. The only catch (and I believe the same to be true for OLED's) is that the motion doesn't compare to my plasmas at home.

Going to be a sad day when I have to replace my Panasonic plasma.. black levels and colours are awesome. Feeling I might go 4k if I get an Xbox one X though.
