LG EG9100 OLED TV Calibration Settings

The following screenshots are the picture settings of our LG OLED 55EG9100 TV, following our calibration. You can copy them for every usage, including movies and sports. The only exception is for playing video games, where you will want first to change the icon of the HDMI input to PC to have a lower input lag.

LG EG9100 Calibration Settings 1

Expert1 has the closest presets by default.

LG EG9100 Calibration Settings 2

'OLED Light' changes the luminosity of the screen. Increase it in a bright room (not 'Brightness').

LG EG9100 Calibration Settings 3

If you want the soap opera effect, turn on 'TruMotion'. The two noise reductions features are useful if you watch low quality content like DVDs or poor streaming sources.

LG EG9100 Calibration Settings 4

The rest of the screenshot shows our 2pts, 20pts and colorspace calibration. We don't recommend that you copy these, because it varies per unit (especially that it is really easy to get color banding on this TV if you are a little bit off).

Just bought the EG9100 a week ago and i feel like my picture isnt as amazing as everyones talked about. Whats the best way to self calibrate other than using the settings that you said may not be best for my panel?
Use all the other settings we suggest (except 'White balance' and 'Color management'). Then if you are not satisfied with the resulting picture, you can adjust to your liking. If you find the picture too dim or warm, increase the 'OLED LIGHT' value first then maybe change the color temperature to 'Warm1'. We also found that on some OLED TVs the overall picture is sometimes too dark depending of the content, setting 'Gamma' to 1.9 will help with that. If you want to dig deeper into calibration, we suggest using a calibration disc like the Disney WOW one. Let us know about the settings you end up with.

You don't recommend that I copy these 2 pt, 20 pt, and colorspace calibration settings because they vary by unit (and that it is really easy to get color banding). Do I just pick one of each or what? Not sure what do to here and really don't want to mess up color banding.
Thanks for all your reviews, it's great! I'm not getting a 4K TV yet, and this 1080p looks like the best from all your reviews on here and looks like the one I want. Using TV for movies, PC games and sports.
No, if you do copy our settings, you'll need to copy all of them. They all represent different shades of gray, and it's only by calibration every one that you'll have adjusted your picture properly.
The reason we don't recommend copying them is because there's a chance they will make your TV's picture worse. If you try them and the picture gets worse, just reset them to defaults.

If I set HDMI to PC, do I still copy the rest of your settings? How much picture quality will I lose?
Yes, copy our settings. The image may look slightly different, but it's not objectively worse, so there's nothing to worry about there.

I noticed you have black level set to low. Does that matter or should it be on high?
It is better to set it at 'Auto'. This setting is related to the RGB range. The RGB range can be set on computer or game console to 'Limited' or 'full' and depending of which one is use, the TV need to have good matching setting, either 'Low' or 'High'. At 'Auto', it will select automatically the good setting depending of the source. for more information you can look here under 'FULL/LIMITED RGB'.

Do these menu options apply to ALL the LG OLED sets made? Or just the top-of-the-line?
In general the menu options are the same, however they will differ depending on the features of the TV. For example, the B6 doesn't have 3D support. If you have a model which we haven't reviewed, try to copy our settings (but not the while balance or color management). If something is missing, this is not an issue.
