    yea, it is....

    for SDR it's a class of one really, with the pana 2000 next in line,
    the lcd based 27-> 31" too much ($), too little (")
    all have issues with linearity, no advantage to anything but a 31" @ 30k screen on that file
    my plan is to buy 6x Cx48" OLED, retun the 4x worst, keep the hero for my studio, and the second best for my suite at home

    That is stellar! Definitely warrants me upgrading from my plasma finally. Your idea of buying several at one go seems like a good idea.

    One thing I like about LG consumer TV's in general is they have a consumer accessible expert calibration mode that gives full control over settings for instrument based calibrations (or by eye with test charts if you are an old broadcast engineer like me). They have a guided smart calibration test mode for eyeballing too.
    We bought a new LG 65" for the living room last winter, a pandemic survival purchase. It is a 7 series LED HDR set, black level is about two stops above the OLED's, but couldn't afford one of those. It took a few adjustment passes to get it dialed in for the room and for HDR content display vs normal REC709. Using it as a reference for judging HLG grades from the Bolex.
    For grading I use a 10-bit HDR 4K 32" LG gaming monitor built on the same panel and platform as their pro grading monitor version, but with B-grade panels and less sophisticated internal software. Not quite as even if you look at a flat field shading test chart, but more than adequate for grading web videos, or even broadcast/industrial stuff. You have to use an external HDMI video capture card that outputs 10 bit YUV to see 10 bit on the display. For $350 it rocks though.

    What model would that be, Razz? That's a great price.

    My 2008/2007 plasma developed an unfixble (or not-worth-the-cost-to-fixable) problem recently and I was looking for a (bigger and better) replacement, be nice if I could also use that to grade the extremely occasional unpaid/hobby project.

    How is the LG uniformity by eye for you?
    By eye the uniformity looks pretty good. Get's darker around the edges of the screen - a little more pronounced on the left and right sides and not so much on the tops and bottoms, but way better than my old iMac (which looked like a vintage lens if you did a full screen white page)

    Also, if anyone is interested I finally figured out why my colors inside of premiere looked so drastically different (brighter and way over saturated). Since this monitor is a P3 display you have to click this option inside of Premiere to get accurate colors:
