Looking to upgrade our living room TV to a 4K HDR. It is used primarily for streaming Netflix, movies, and gaming. Gaming device will be a PS4 Pro. The room has high light levels during the day. Seating is a roughly 12 feet from the TV, and the viewing angle ranges from zero to a 30° angle at the absolute most. I really want an OLED, but I do not want the price tag associated. My budget is 1000 to 1200. I'm curious to know if you think I am better off picking something now, or if you feel that OLED prices are going to drop this fall. If picking up a TV now what would be the recommendations? I am currently considering a Samsung KS 8000 that is on sale for 1200 right now.

hi im have a room about 30 x25 and main seating is about 14 -15 feet from the wall. the room is very bright during the day large windows and doors on 3 sides. i have 96 inches between two windows and thought of purchasing a 85 inch tv to replace a older sharp 1080p sharp aquos. we originally wanted a sony 4k projector and 120 inch screen but felt our room would be too bright

i have used google search too much and now have information overload. we thought an 85ish screen would be good and were considering the Sony 85inch 850d, the new 86 LG SJ9570, and the samsung UN85JU7100FXZA. we watch a lot of sports on direct, play xbox 1s games and stream , as well as apple tv.

whats going to give us the best overall results for our bright room , viewing sources ? at that viewing distance is a 4k 85 inch tv too big?

Thanks

Of course OLED prices will continue to fall, but will they hit the $1,200 and under price point by this fall? Probably not. For $1,200 and under for a 4K/HDR TV I don't think you can beat this right now.

The IPS panel 2016 Sony XBR85X850D is a good choice for a bright room with a wide viewing angle and is one of the lower-priced 85" sets. It is mediocre with HDR content though. The Samsung UN85JU7100 is a 2015 VA panel set without HDR support so I'd avoid that one. If you can afford the $8K price tag, you should at least look at the new 2017 IPS panel LG 86SJ9570 since it should be better with HDR content than the Sony, also supports Dolby Vision and might even have decent sound if that matters.
