I am seriously considering a 65" OLED as a 40th birthday present to myself.

My price range is around the 6K mark. Audio will all be through seperate receiver and smart features will be seldom used - what I am interested in is all aspects of picture quality.

I had been thinking Panasonic, but a unit with a stand that isn't the full width of the TV would work a lot better in my living room - so now I am thinking LG.

LG OLED65C7T is currently about $6300, where the LG OLED65E7T is about $12000. Other than the sound bar and style differences is the C7 just as good? I.e. Is there any difference at all if in picture quality, black levels, motion blur/jutter, reflections, etc?

How does the LG C7 stack up against the new Panasonic OLEDs?

Many retailers now have the Sony, LG and Panasonic OLED's lined up in a row for you to watch, it's quite handy.


To me, the LG looks the worst of the three out of the box.

Vincent from HDTV just ran his annual test this week. Below is the overview. The EZ1002 and EZ952 are very similar. Biggest difference being no absolute black filter in the EZ 952.
