Another excellent and balanced review of a fantastic TV.
I recently purchased and enjoying the GZ950 after finally switching from a 8 year old Panasonic pro panel.

I noticed the calibration settings in the review mention ISF dark and Trumotion. Have these been accidentally posted from a LG OLED instead of the GZ2000 ?

Further to my previous post noted that the the calibration settings in the review are actually the ones taken from the previous LG SM90 review not from the GZ2000. Can you update please with the GZ2000 calibration settings. Thanks

Yup, you're right. Correcting now.

Did you actually test the Rakuten TV app to see if it outputs HDR? I signed up for a free movie rental and although it said it was 4K HDR it didn't output in HDR.

I've referred it to Panasonic but there has been no fix yet.

I don't have an account at Rakuten, so only their trailers were tested, which didn't output HDR - but neither do trailers in iTunes, so I didn't see it as an indicator of any problems.

It would help if your review showed if the apps were working as it should rather than looking at a spec sheet. In the UK it gives a free rental when you sign up to the app so it doesn't cost anything to test.

The free rental would only apply for this one test then, but we could look into setting up an account that would host a single movie to test out during reviews. Have in mind, though, that we have something like 10 services selling/renting out movies here in DK and a lot more offering monthly services, so to test out every one of them would require a monthly fee well above 200 £.

Disapionting. 70% rec2020. Didn't LG get significantly more than this on a TV a few years ago. Wasn't that the one near 1000 nits? It would be great if they could have done 1500-2000 nits. But they can't do 1000nits at 100%. 100% is so dull, a Q7 beats it.

I've noticed banding on my Q7 too, to my annoyance. I thought it would be significantly better off. So, the GZ2000 is not alone.

The image retention thing is good. I'm glad that turned out that way.
