    Why would it be snake oil unless you don't understand how things work?
    Or get paid by LG

    There still aren’t that many local dimming zones though. The LEDs are lumped in large clusters. I don’t see how this technology will be a big improvement until they can increase the number of dimming zones to match the number of mini LEDs.

    I think they should solve their quality control issues before they release anything else.

    This is just a workaround
    They need individual leds producing color and the light at the same time

    I know the camera is overexposing and the bloom might not be visible normally, but wtf 1:58 look at the blur and trails after these red things.

    Looks good, but still… The modern OLEDS don't really burn in in 99.9% of the cases, and brightness is plenty for most livingrooms. Thus, no reason to sacrifice picture quality by going for something like this. Coming from an LG C8 owner

    Is Digital Trends getting paid by TCL? No one pushes TCL as hard. I like the reviews but I don't see too many others sharing the same tcl enthusiasm.
