We bought our 65" OLED LG TV about 6 months ago and couldn't be happier with it. I would absolutely do it all over again in a heartbeat.

It looks like I am in the minority here so far but I purchased a 75" Samsung Q80R and am very happy with that choice.

Inky blacks, in Movie mode the screen really pops, no reflections suffered due to the matte finish of the screen material - which does not mask the picture - and a great package of picture controls and settings which allows for super fine tweaking to your liking.

The picture is clean and crisp all the way to the sides and corners.

Good luck with your choice!

I have the Sony FALD flagship from a few years back ZD9 and the LG C7 of similar vintage.

The C7 is just better in most aspects of video quality. No halo and the ZD9 already had some of the largest discrete number of dimmable zones even compared to today.

The Sony did have better motion but that’s a Sony trait. And the Sony was brighter 1800nits vs 850 on the LG but in use it wasn’t as noticeable in most shows.

The ZD9 is an FALD not an OLED. The Sony OLED is sourced from LG (same as with Panasonic, Loewe, Philips etc). But even then there are some differences between different makes. The Panasonic 2000 series for instance was best in class - higher brightness and higher ABL because of tweaks that Panasonic made. Sony traditionally has better motion processing.

Samsung will be selling OLEDs. That should answer the question.

We have chosen Samsung, QLED, and been very happy. One feature that I found very convenient is the "box" if you cannot hide wiring inside a wall. All connections are done at the box easily hidden in your cabinet, there are only a thin fiberoptic and power cord going to the TV.

Not trying to be pedantic - it is Samsung Display that is moving to Quantum Dot filter OLED

BUT Samsung Electronics which manufactures and sells the TVs themselves haven’t gone to the new tech. The rumor mill says it’s because the QD OLED is limited to 4K at the moment so it doesn’t fit the marketing angle that Samsung Electronics have been pushing for the last 2 years - 8K. So it seems Samsung Electronics will now source Chinese built 8K LCD panels. And Samsung Displays will be selling QD OLED to Chinese vendors.

I would love to see the new QD OLED stuff.

It uses blue OLED panels and quantum dot filters to recreate red and green (vs a second yellow OLED with filters). Using a single OLED apparently will result in lower costs and better screen uniformity. While the QD filter should give closer to REC2020 color space than before.

Great info - thanks. Do you know if Samsung Electronics or another OLED panel supplier is going to produce smaller form factor panels? I’d like to see something in the 42” size for our living room, which has a specific fixed width space.
