I've been enjoying and testing our store demo 2020 CX series 4K HDR OLED TVs for a few days.

For 2020 LG added several interesting new user menu items to control how you want to set-up and use your OLED TV. Some are for convenience and others can enhance picture quality and performance when configured properly.

Here's a few pics:

Thank you Robert!! That's some pretty cool stuff there! Can't wait to get my hands on one of these to calibrate.

I just calibrated an E8 (LG's 2018 model) the other day and I'm telling you folks, LG's OLED displays are awesome! While it takes time to calibrate properly, they are absolutely stunning to the eye. One of these days I wish someone would call me with a Sony OLED so I can see one of those too.

I'll just post a few of the most interesting new user menu items. First is one of my favorites, the highly anticipated "selectable Black Frame Insertion, aka, BFI, and LG adeptly calls it "OLED Motion Pro".

Love the Low setting as I do not perceive any dimming, but it does improve motion resolution and does not introduce the dreaded SOE.

Just wanted to clear up some misunderstanding and incorrect information from emails, calls and PMs on the GX series.

1st, the LG's GX series is also know as the "Gallery Edition" and it comes with the no gap wall mount built-into the TV. I spent a lot of time with the GX series at LG's private off site suite at CES and took and posted pictures of the GX in early January.

2nd, delivery of the 55" and 65" CX and GX will be by the end of next week We were gifted one CX at the beginning of March for our evaluation and testing.

Here's the .pdf spec sheet with more information and additional confirmation of the included no gap wall mount.

You are welcome to pass this information to others who are interested,

Here's a couple pics of the new GX Gallery OLED TV that shows the built-in no gap wall mount hols the TV flush to the wall with absolutely no gap between the wall and the backside of the TV.

Other than our normal business, today's unusual emails and phone calls were to ask me about the beautiful GX soundbar that I photographed in the above pics. These questions came from folks from another forum. I'm surprised to hear an a/v enthusiasts forum would not have an authorized dealer to answer these questions.

My reply to these fine folks was to come to any of the forums I am a member of to find the answers.

LG's custom designed GX series soundbar will perfectly match the 65GX and our first allocation is scheduled to arrive in July 2020. It's 56.9" wide perfectly matching the width of the 65GX and can be mounted butt up to the 65GX with no gap. I'll provide more spec and pricing info as the release gets closer.

Today I got a call from a few LG executives telling me my company one of only 10 dealers selected in the USA to be a PINNACLE Dealer and to have all of the many benefits for our company and all of our clients. For now the program is so new that I was asked not to disclose all of the exclusive benefits, but one that means a lot to me is priority allocations of constrained hot TVs and other LG a/v products.

I tested this benefit by placing POs for 77GX, 77CX and 77ZX TVs and was granted very nice allocations. I fact, we'll be the first dealer getting LG's 77" ZX 8K OLED TV.

I'll announce several of the other benefits as I get permission to discuss them. Value Electronics's LG PINNACLE Program officially starts this Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
