    Personally, the best prices I have ever seen online have been from the Exchange website, especially during any American holidays. For any veterans or services members, you should compare prices from every website and you will see that The Exchange will out beat anyone with regards to electronics. I've seen Flagship TV's on super sale for "thousands" less than anyone around with zero tax-free shipping.

    When buying TV, don't use the natural scenery demonstration picture as the reference for the TV picture quality, because the natural scenery has a lot of green and blue pictures, blue and green will cover the defects of the TV picture quality, and the natural scenery demonstration picture Will increase the audience's affection for the TV screen,
    A high-quality TV opportunity uses a variety of colors and complex geometric images to demonstrate the color accuracy of the TV and the contrast of the various colors.
    For example: film production is made using blue and green curtains
    C G stunt animation is because green and blue easily cover other colors

    The store I just bought the Panasonic 65FZ1000C from said they see the most burn in with the LG OLED and the least with the panasonic. I almost spent more money on a Sony but after some talking to a salesman and manager both said the FZ1000C was their favorite TV in store, it was on display next to a Sony AF9. $1000 cheaper. I currently have a Sony Bravia XBR HX929 55" TV that I still love so it will be interesting to see the differnce.

    Actually im stuck on LCD but at least it doesn't have screen burn! Make sure you dont watch the news or sports or anything that has a fixed graphic on screen. Dont even play a video game. Oh and I am not debating the picture quality. OLED is awesome and looks amazing. I almost purchased one. That is until I saw the horrendous screen burn on my brothers OLED.... Dont be sad. Its ok. Long love happy time. Sucky sucky. Me love you long time

    I bought an LG C8 (55'). I play survival horror games a lot at night and guys... Resident Evil 2, RE7, Alien Isolation just looks so amazing on Oled I feel like its everyday christmas for me now... Unbelievable experience. Highly recommended when you like horror games / movies. (also nature documentaries on 4k, but even on 1080p are amazing)

    I want to purchase a
    55” oled and I’m between the
    LG c8 pta and the Sony A8F
    I need it for movies Netflix and TheXvid music videos only -
    No gaming at all - most of ppl would say go for Sony but I don’t like that is so low and can’t add a sound bar... what u recommend? I read also that Sony doesn’t really need a sound bar cause the sound from the build in speakers and woofer is already super good ... mounting Sony would effect the sound from the woofers on the back side ???

    i am looking for my first 4ktv and was thinking on the Sony Bravia XBR65X900F or the Samsung UN65NU8000- I was thinking on buying the xbox one x console as well.
    what do u recommend?

    • Game Time
      Game Time 3 months ago

      AVNSpider the nu8000 has freesync with the xbox one x. Good color, above average but not top tier brightness, great upscaling and motion, average black level (weakest part, because it is edge lit, but its not terrible.. just acceptable)
      The 900F is better for movies, but the nu8000 may be better overall if blacks arent the most important thing to you, and if you do a lot of gaming and want the xbox one x
      I love my nu8000 but I do eventually want an oled or mini-led tv for movies.. really not necesarry though. The nu8000 still has the best black level out of any TV I ever had other than the tcl 6 and vizio p series I exchanged for the nu8000

    Why does my Samsung Q7 TV have poor skin tones, particularly when watching Movies. The skin tones are shiny and flicker, not natural at all. I have followed set up from a range of people including digital foundry.

  • Bill MacKinnon
    Bill MacKinnon 6 months ago

    It depends on what you use your T.V. for, I use it just for movies, I watch them at night, so the LG C8 65 has worked out well for me, scratch that, it is beyond my wildest dreams and I don't impress easily. I've had it for 9 months now and still can't believe how great it looks, absolutely a fantastic buy for me, I love it. You can't too wrong with any of these OLED's because they are all LG panels.

      Have a b8 in my computer room. A quantum in my living room. The brightness of the vizio makes HDR so much better, it is by far my favorite. But then again, HDR is favorite new technology (to each their own). Not to mention vizio BFI is unmatched.

    I was in the market for a 4k tv in april 2018, then i learnt about HDR, then about Dolby/Oled , then about Oled image retention, then i bought the Sony X9300E/ Dolby vision here in India. Thanks to Vincent i realised how much i love picture quality & personally i don't think my future tv's can be without Dolby Vision...!!

    Wanted some advice. I have an LG OLED 55C7T but I'm keen on upsizing to a 65" 4k TV. I'm in love with LG OLED's but the 65C8 is far too expensive where I live. What's the best choice for my needs? Budget limitation is below the cost of a 65C8 wherever you are. Usage is general mix - Movies, TV, Sport, minimal gaming. Location of TV - living room, fairly well lit.

  • 3choBlast3r
    3choBlast3r 7 months ago +1

    P.s. I fucking LOVE oleds but can't buy them until they find a solution to the burn in. My TV is mostly used to game with and also often as a secondary laptop screen. I'd burn that thing so fast :/
    I mean recently I obsessively played RDR2 (I literally burned my self out playing that game, I don't want to touch it for a while and haven't even finished the prologue yet lol)
    I can easily play 3 to 5 hours straight. Maybe even more during weekends if I just got a new game. I like to play with brightness maxed out etc... I'm pretty damn sure that if I had bought a good / expensive Oled and played RDR2 like I did recently the map circle in the bottom left would have burned into my screen.

    Wow, there are some nice televisions out there, now I’ll have to think more about what tv I’m getting to replace the Sony 60 inch full HD, when the time comes. It’s great to see an 8K on the market, I’m in Perth Western Australia, the 8K hasn’t hit the shelves yet and I’m hanging out to see one, we are always behind in Australia. A Sony tech guy, told me a few weeks ago, 8K won’t be out for another 4 years. Ha ha, they don’t know that much!! Cheers, thank you for your information 👍🏻😊

    Nice Glasses. Never waste money ever on Oled. This guy is paid to push the technology. Oled is the new name for Plasma back in the 2000. This technology is just reborn. Stick with LCD technology. Your money is safely invested. No burn in. Longevity guaranteed. How many computer monitors have you heard of going bad. But glasses man keep up the videos.

    • Sir Jon Smith III

      Love my vizio quantum. The brightness (for HDR) and BFI, makes me like it better then my B8 that I have in my computer room.

    • eurosensazion
      eurosensazion 6 months ago

      So true. I got a 2006 Sony Bravia 48" Plasma was great but burn in within 3 years. Now hurts our eyes. Got 2008 55" LCD Samsung back then $1800 on great deal and man that tv still kills it in quality. No issues with it nothing I want to give it an award for 10 years of awesomeness. Even for gaming it kills still. Thinkin of getting mid range 55" Samsung NU8000 to upgrade another room and compare.

    6:31 Q900R 8K is the only TV you should buy as the rest is obsolete!

    • Marcus Cole
      Marcus Cole 7 months ago

      8K is complete nonsense for living rooms ! You need to sit as close as 0.7mtrs to be able to detect 8K resolution with your eyes !
      From the average viewing distance of 3 mtrs. you can't even tell whether it's 2K or 4K...
      And...btw...the Q900 is a desperate attempt of Samsung to slow down their decreasing sales in the premium segment due to lacking OLED sets in their line up.
      The Q900's concept is full of overpriced, low performing and energy wasting piece of garbage.
      To get an impression watch "this":
      at 9:50 (dimming fluctuations) or 12:10 (average luminance of just 600 and in maximum just 900nits with real content) or 12:25 (horrible EOTF for HDR) or 12:55 (just 89% of DCI-P3) or 13:20 (TCL U55X9006 better in colour gamut than Q900) ... a.s.o.

    • Kevin Taylor

      ​@Sam Jones It is all about the upscaling from 2K and 4K to 8K. All Hollywood movies have been recorded in 8K since 2016 and AAA games in development are being made in 8K. Japan now broadcasts TV in 8K and satellite TV has been testing 8K. An 8K camera on the S10Plus so you can make your own 8K movies. I think you will find the jump to 8K will happen a lot faster than 2K to 4K. I reading and typing this using my PC with an old Samsung 2K 55" TV which I have used as my monitor for years and I play all the latest games. I was so tempted to buy this Black Friday but I will wait until next year when HDMI 2.1 has been released. Search TheXvid for 8K gaming and content. Search for Q900R reviews for a little more than the 4K Q9FN you are guaranteed future proof with 8K and free HDMI 1.2 Connect Box shipped to you next year. All manufacturers are releasing 8K TVs at CSE in January 2019.

    Hello Vincent, Answer me a question if you would. Why is it that LG makes the best OLED tv's but the consumer can't seem to convince them to make an OLED phone (unless it's 7 inched tall)? And Samsung makes the best OLED phones but they can't seem to understand that the consumer wants OLED tv's?

    • Tom Elew
      Tom Elew 7 months ago

      Okay thanks Sam. I just love oled - it is so impressive, and it's somewhat frustrating we don't have more choice out there when it comes to oled adopters . It's the superior technology so I'm surprised more companies are not making the push for it.
