I picked up a Sony XBR930 65" TV about 3 weeks ago and I love it.
Last night I was in Best Buy looking at phones for my daughter and ended up walking out with a LG B7 OLED TV ($1,499) - Holy Shit!
This thing has the most realistic picture I've ever seen.
Guy's; If your considering replacing a aging TV, I highly recommend the LG B7 OLED TV.
I did find my daughter a phone as well.
Stay calm and return fire.
I have seen a lot of complaints about permanent image retention on OLEDs. Anybody have any experience with this? Makes me want to wait on OLEDs for the time being.
I heard the same thing from a Samsung rep. His claim Samsung wasn't ever going to go to OLED. I have no personal experience with OLED, but wasn't crazy about the last Sony TV I had so I went back to Samsung QLED Q7. So far I have been really happy. Picture is fantastic and I really like the OS and the way the apps work.
I've been looking at a new TV to replace a maybe 10 year old 55" Samsung. OLED was my preference and I'd been waiting for prices to come down to reasonable levels for more than a year. I kept looking at them side by side though, 55" vs 65", and just didn't see a huge difference. 65" is bigger, but only about 33% bigger.
Finally, after researching the whole OLED vs LCD question, I stumbled onto the Sony 940D with Full Array LED Back Lighting aka FALD and the reviews were fantastic with the only knock being viewing at extreme angles. The fact that 75" is twice the size of a 55" TV and some reservations with OLED being less than a mature technology, I pulled the trigger on the 75" Sony 940D last month.
What I really love is the smart TV features. I just plugged in the Sony and moved the main HDMI cable over the it's ARC HDMI input and added the IR blaster in front of the cable box and went through the start up menus and bingo, the thing controls my Yamaha receiver for the HT sound, turns it on and off automatically and fully functions as a cable remote to boot, very slick. With the Android TV, I installed Plex and bang, it runs great for streaming from our NAS. The only knock would be that the cable box control is a little sluggish, but not a big deal and surely easier than having a bunch of remotes on the coffee table.
But yes, the LG is fantastic and scores a bit better than the Sony on rtings. It's all about trade offs and my tipping point was size.
