60" LCD or 55" OLED?

Home has a built in that max size is a 60". It would fit about perfect. Leave about an inch left and right of TV. I sit about 11' back from TV. Room is not super bright and lights are dim for most viewing. Slightly off angle seating right of TV but not extreme.

As you know, 60" TV is a dying size. Best tv's available are the Samsung KS8000 and LGUH8500. It's either one of those or an LG B or C6.

I don't think I am a videophile but OLED does look great in store. I currently have a 55" Sony XBR850c that I am happy with. Honestly, If they made the 850c equivalent in a 60" I would probably just buy one. Is that extra 5" worth the supposed sacrifice in picture quality?

On a side note.... C6 curve or B6 not curved? WebOS work as well as Android TV? My old harmony remote going to be able to jump from option to option since it will not have pointer option?

Thanks in advance for all replies and opinions.

Fair question and I may just stick with the 850c but I am tempted by a larger TV and OLED.

If you want to upgrade, I would upgrade in pic quality instead. Going from a 55"-60" isn't a huge difference in my opinion. Going Oled makes more sense as the picture would be an upgrade.

I say go with OLED unless you you are tempted by 65" or larger then it's harder in my opinion.

Thanks. I cannot fit a 65" without major construction on the built in.

Too far to see much difference between Full HD and Ultra HD

If you are sitting 11' away from screen then Ultra HD / 4k won't look any better than Full HD / 1080p until you get to 85" plus diagonal screen size. Rtings.com has a good explanation of the physics of this.

I have a Samsung KS8000 and like it but off-axis viewing degrades quickly. Again, Rtings.com KS8000 review shows picture quality off-axis so you can judge for yourself.

If you can't sit closer or get bigger then I would improve the sound or buy more software instead of upgrading TV.

Thanks. Not even the better contrast or better blacks of OLED is going to be noticeable from 11'?

Depends on how dark your room is. If you have the lights on while viewing, the light control weakness of an edge-lit LCD are not easily visible. If you're in a dark room, it's blatantly obvious that the OLED has much better blacks and much better light control.
