I made the jump to OLED...

I needed to replace a ~10-year-old, 42" Panasonic plasma that was developing problems. I think I spent around $1200 for it at the time, and was hoping to get a better panel for around the same price I paid back then.

Once I saw the new LG OLED sets I was hooked, and it spoiled me for any possible LCD replacement. Simply phenomenal picture quality that made even the mighty Panny plasma pale in comparison.

I really wasn't prepared to spend $2k+ on a television, but I bit the bullet and couldn't be more pleased. 1080p content upscaled to 4k looks amazing, and the black level performance of OLED can't be matched at this time.

I ended up purchasing the LG OLED55C7P ($2200 promo pricing) and got a free $150 gift card in the deal. I have no regrets, and if this panel survives, I can easily imagine living with it for the next ten years or so.

I do think that Real Dick Hertz's recommendation of the Sony LCD is a solid pick... The XBR55X930E was my second choice, but at $1699 I felt that the extra $$$ for the LG OLED was worth it.

As usual, YMMV... Good luck!
