Congrats on another brilliant review. Just a couple of questions
How come no picture setting for contrast?
Why did this time did you select the Cinema as the picture mode setting instead of Expert 1 or 2 as in previous reviews?

Its pointless comparing settings on tv. There are differences in how each person perceive colo(u)r. Ask 5 persons what they perceive the sky as, you will get at least 3 different answer. Even motion blur is perceived differently. Even if a pro calibrator is utilised, it cannot recreate what the individual perceive as comfortable or preferable. Me, I Do Not Like the pinkish samsung color rendering. I dislike sony's picture. To me its artificial, like a picture on a poster. But majority of viewers like it, including samsung's pinkish tint. I have personally ask my friends when in shops, do they see the pinkish tint in samsung or the artificial picture in sony, most replied that they dont perceive the pink and prefer the sony's artificial picture. But they do agree that sony's picture is not true to live as compared to real world surroundings.
Best is to understand what each of the option does, then calibrate to each individual or group viewing preference.
I was seeing if u could send me the contrast setting for the c7p u didn't put it in your review. And if possible could u give me the settings u used for the white balance and color management I get that every tv is different and every ones set up is also but I would like to try your setting to see if I like it. Thanks for great reviews all the time
As per Dave, select under picture mode the Cinema User setting. It will automatically populate your LG TV with the picture settings recommended by Dave in his review, including a Contrast Setting of 85. I strongly recommend you listen to Dave and take his picture setting recommendations. He is without a doubt the best in the industry. He gets it right all of the time. I have been following him for over 10 years. When I buy a new TV, it will be one he recommends. From experience his recommended picture settings will make your TV picture look beautiful. I have friends that come to my house, and they all end up telling me they wish their TV would look as good as mine. There is no secret I tell them, just go to Cnet and follow Dave's TV picture settings for the TVs he has reviewed.
I have a LG OLED65C7P and notice screen uniformity issues especially when viewing white content. Attached is an image showing an all white screen and I notice faint broad vertical bands of warmer/slightly peach shade white vs. bright white. Has anyone noticed this on their LG OLED? I am trying to determine if this is an issue or just a characteristic of OLED screens.
Can you please test using the white screen image on YouTube? It is faint, but I notice variances in the shade of white and would like to know my panel is defective or if others can notice very slight variances (warmer vs. cooler) in white temperature. The Rtings review stated in their Grey Uniformity section that the right side of the screen was slightly warmer and that is the same as mine.

Attached are images of my LG OLED65C7P. The first is 100% white that shows the peach color warmer white tone vertical bands (mostly on right) and the second is 5% grey. My concern is it is a gamble when exchanging sets so want to know if this is one of the better or worse examples so I know if I should exchange it. Thank you for everyone's help, very much appreciated!!!
OK, just kidding. I ran the white test and found there was a little play from warm to cold depending on where I stood, but it was very subtle and did not seem to be married to any one part of the screen. There was also very noticeable banding at 1% to about 4% black and then became significantly less evident.
So now this forum has succeeded in making me less satisfied with my expensive TV.
This sounds like the issue i have with my CP7. I started noticing this when watching a golf tournament or football game. For example a golf green will look slightly less saturated on about the left one third of the screen. It's more dark green in the middle of and on the right side of the screen. When I move to the right, the golf green will become fully saturated. So when I put on the White Balance screen from youtube, I do see the slight peach color on the left side. Is this something that can be fixed with a warranty call? Thanks.
It depends on if you are within the warranty period. I was able to get mine replaced by Best Buy since I was within warranty. The replacement is fantastic. My understanding is it was due to quality control issues in some of the factories that has now been resolved. Just what I heard so not positive. However, new screen is much improved so I would try if you are still within warranty.
These settings were great and really helpful. One of my most critical concerns in using them was getting rid of the "Soap Opera Effect," which my wife and I both hate. This was achieved by setting TruMotion (Settings/All Settings/Picture/Picture Mode Settings/Picture Options/TruMotion) to Off. In your settings you suggest to set both TruMotion and Real Cinema to TK. What does 'TK' mean. Sorry, that's just not an abbreviation or acronym I'm familiar with.
Worth noting, by the way, nearly at the very bottom of the Picture Mode settings (and therefore easy to overlook) is an 'Apply to All Inputs' setting. This is my first smart TV and I had no idea they were so sophisticated as to offer different settings for different inputs. I couldn't figure out why my cable was still showing the Soap Opera Look when I had eliminated it elsewhere. Applying to all inputs took care of this.
