LG EF9500 OLED TV Calibration Settings

This is our calibration settings for the LG OLED EF9500 4k TV. Copying these picture settings should be a good start for your tv.

LG EF9500 Calibration Settings 1

'Expert1' picture mode has very good preset for everything, including gaming. The 'Game' picture mode doesn't have a lower input lag, but make sure you disable 'TruMotion' otherwise the input lag is quite high.

LG EF9500 Calibration Settings 2

If you find the picture too dim, increase 'OLED LIGHT', not 'Brightness'.

LG EF9500 Calibration Settings 3

For DVDs or SD channels, turn on the noise reduction features.

LG EF9500 Calibration Settings 4

You can get a slightly wider color gamut when 'Color Gamut' is set to wide, but this isn't recommended for normal content because the colors will be over saturated.

The rest of the screenshots below show our 2pts, 20pts and colorspace calibration. We really don't recommend you copy them on your TV. It varies a lot per unit, especially on OLED TVs. Try them if you want, but if you notice any color banding, reset them.

How can I reduce the judder on lg65ef9500? Any settings I should change?
The only way to reduce/remove judder is by using 'TruMotion' under the 'Picture' menu. We are still waiting for a firmware update to correct judder in 24p.

Purchased the 55EF9500. It will arrive this coming Thursday. Other than the calibration settings you've so graciously posted, is there anything else I need to do to optimize this set? Have someone come in to calibrate the TV?
A calibration would get you the best color capability, but if you look at the 'Color' section of our review, you'll see that the EF9500 is really quite good for color even pre-calibration, so it's probably not worth the expense. Just copy our recommended settings (minus the white balance/color adjustments) and you'll be all set to enjoy your TV.
