    Bad news for me, Rtings said TCL confirmed the 65" P series is not coming out this year http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/tcl/p-series-2017-p607#comparison_914

    My only other viable 65" option then is the Vizio M65-e0, but the input lag at around 37ms may be a dealbreaker.

    I'm inching closer to just keeping this LeEco for now and crossing my fingers, get something better maybe next year, and at least I'll have a nominal 4k/HDR set for Xbox One X's arrival. the other option would be to wait for a deal on the 607/605P 55", but since I kind of want a 65" in the end anyway, I'm not sure it's worth the extra $ to go from my LeEco to it. Well, I have until September 20 to continue in a holding pattern, that is the drop dead return it or else date on the LeEco 've been using.

    Decisions decisions...

    Keep the one you have as the TCL is not a generational leap in quality. Right now it's premium all the way for a new experience. I just upgraded to the LG Oled b7 from the Panasonic dx800 (a great mid range display) and there's no comparison in regards to screen uniformity, shadow detail, contrast and viewing angle. The sweet spot on the VA panels is so small that even in the perfect seat the edges of the displays will glow. You should only be looking Oled, Sony z9d, or the Panasonic dx902. Otherwise everything else is so similar in the midrange that it's not worth it to change now.

    Shocking that only OLED TVs are on that list ... not really.

    LG B7 still the best for gaming.

    The LG C7 should be even better but vastly more expensive.

    65" C7 at less than 3k is a steal

    Did people review the TV's in that auditorium from wherever they just happened to sit at? Or they walked in front of them?

    65" C7 is $3.2k on Amazon US currently, down from $4k.

    I read the last few pages, and as somebody who does have light flooding into the room, is more concerned about being able to see dark scenes on the TV while watching in a well lit space and wants to be able to view the picture from extreme viewing angles is OLED the exactly wrong TV for me to get?

    We got up and walked to the front to get an on axis view of each set and compare it to the reference monitor.

    The only exception was the input lag test where this was not needed.

    There is no picture quality difference between any of the LG oled lineup. The b7 has the same panel and soc as the c7/e7/g7/w7.

    I'm mulling over an LG OLED 55' B6 which I can get for 1600€
    I must make a decision soon though, because stores are clearing stocks and B7 cost more than 3k

    For that price, I'd go for it.
    The B6 was one of the best TV's just a few months ago. If you'd been happy then with a B6, you'll be happy with it now.
    The 7 series are an improvement especially on brightness, but the 6 series is still a top of the line TV.

    They do differ with regards to input lag.

    Are you sure about that? 21ms game mode on the entire 2017 lineup - they use the same SOC and panel. 2016 models were a different story, since not all models used the same SOC - so performance varied.

    I wish there were gaming sites that reviewed tvs with a focus on calibration in gaming mode. Always hard to know what controls are available in game mode on a tv. I want low input lag, but I also don't want my games to look like shit.

    Nope. You're thinking B6 vs C6 and above from last year when the B6 has a different SOC than the rest of the line up.

    Hey, if companies want to send me tvs, I'd think about it.

    I misread. I thought he mentioned the 2016 models.

    B6 got a firmware upgrade early this year which brought the input lag way down to similar levels with other 2016 LG Oled models. The firmware also fixed the issue where the input lag changed between frames.
