Very evident using backgrounds that are uniform (except black or white). Games and movies/tv looked great and couldn't see it with all the motion.

    Very bummed, since there is no more stock at Takealot
    Sorry to hear. I got my CX refunded because of this type of vertical banding.

    Damn that really sucks, i still haven't see the 48" around here yet. Moving into our new home at the end of the month and will have a think about where i could fit a C1.

    But of course they are doing great deals on the CX now, not sure the C1 upgrade is worth the extra money.

    I do think LG has worse quality control than before. I had my C9 replaced by a CX on warranty, the first CX was pretty kak with lots of banding and pink tint, then I got another replacement on warranty immediately and the next one was brilliant.

    It could also be the size, the C9 was my first 65. In general it seems the 65 is more prone to banding and tinting, but luckily I scored a good panel on the 2nd try (3rd if you count the used C9 I bought lol)

    a 48 should most of the time be pretty uniform so that's a bad lottery strike. I had a 55 inch E6 and a C7 which were both awesome and uniform on the first try.

    This is the culprit. Like I said, didn't notice it before because you can't see it with motion.

    Going to give the Clean Pixels thing a whack and see what that does.

    That's neither banding nor a uniformity issue, that's a ****up.

    You've got to return it.

    Not yet. Been waiting for review on the C1 vs NeoQLED. Not sure yet what I want to go for.

    What are you waiting to find out? It's not going to make a dramatic difference from previous years, the traditional strengths of each technology will still stand.

    If I am honest I am procrastinating more than anything else. I know I should just buy the OLED. I've not yet seen local availability of the C1 55 and 65 though. I would like the 65 but I am unsure if it is within my current budget.
