Off. Only scenario in which it might be useful is with sports like football, which I don't watch.

Just be sure not to use their SDR "White Balance and Color Space Settings", they're not relevant to any display but the one they measured.

Is the B7 or the B8 oled series worth buying given the new models? C8, C9

Are the upgrades worth the increase in costs ?

B8 definitely worth it at the lower price imo. Prices are lowering on the older series.
A few weeks ago dionwired sold 65" C8's for R29k.

Managed to get a 55" C9 last week - haven't set it up yet but found that WhatHiFi has plenty of info on the "correct" settings. Has anybody used those guides?

I would not use any TV settings suggested by What Hi-Fi - they are clueless.

For the most accurate picture out the box, use these settings in "Cinema" mode:

Aspect Ratio - Original
Just Scan - On
Energy Saving - Off
Additional Settings: Eye Comfort Mode - Off
OLED Panel Settings - Screen Shift - Off
Logo Luminance Adjustment - Off

Picture Mode Settings
(SDR / HDR10 / DV):

OLED Light - 23+ / 100 / 100
Contrast - 85 / 100 /100
Brightness - 50
Sharpness - 0
Color - 50
Tint - 0

Expert Controls:
Dynamic Contrast - Off
Super Resolution - Off
Color Gamut - Auto / Not Applicable
Color Filter - Off
Gamma - 2.4 / Not Applicable
White Balance
Color Temperature - Warm 2

Picture Options:
Noise Reduction - Off
MPEG Noise Reduction - Off
Black Level - Low
Real Cinema - On
Motion Eye Care - Off
TruMotion - Off

There's some leeway on SDR OLED light depending on your lighting conditions. 23 should be ballpark 100 nits (the brightness to which SDR is mastered), but go higher if your room requires it. At a certain point you will be introducing ABL (Auto Brightness Limiting). The technically correct Gamma for SDR is 2.4, but if your room is bright, change it to 2.2.
