I think you can rest assured that if the OLED prices come close to the FALD ones...then there will be FALD sets gathering dust
Whether of not you chose to embrace changes in technology is your personal choice
However..much of your statement points to questioning why you would buy a 4K display in the first place
I am not sure why you say there is nothing to compare it to.....why not the current Samsung FALD..or the new P series from Vizio
If Sony limits introduction of upcoming models it might be due to their financial position...which has not been good the last few years
I don't kid. I just post my opinion which may not be shared by others nor do I force others to accept my agenda or assume they must be wrong.
To me. OLED has more issues than LED. Banding is much more annoying than some slight blooming depending on content and which I rarely see. I don't view my TV from the side. Slightly off-center. My view is exceptional from where I sit and I have two 950B, had a 900A and an XBR1 for ten plus years. No viewing angle issues ever.
Similar to plasma, OLED has retention issues. Much of what I view has those nasty messages that can and will cause issues that then need attending. LED does not suffer from this. Neither did my Samsung DLP I also had for ten plus years.
OLED has potential color fade issues not yet resolved. Seems to be getting better but I tend to keep my TV for longer than five years and it's often on for many hours based on who's using it and day of the week. Last thing I need is degrading PQ.
OLED has the same motion issues as LED. Inherent in the technology. Sony seems to have resolved much of it with LED. I don't see that being the case with OLED based on what I read and those I speak with that have first hand experience. I'm not wanting to find out for myself at the moment that watching the NFL is going to be aggravating.
OLED has the black level wars won, at the moment. Honestly, the blacks I get from 950B in content and was getting from my 900A with content is more than adequate and doesn't leave me yearning for new technology which has issues of it's own I find of greater concern than what I've come to be accustomed with LED.
As for fear of new technology. I consider myself an early adapter. Always have been. First to get an iPhone as I received one morning it was released. Owned a 900A being the first 4K. Owned a DLP when first released. Currently have an X99 computer I built myself last year when the first board were released. Trust me. I tend to be the first but not a test crash dummy. OLED has issues. This isn't new. This hasn't been fixed. When it does then I will buy into it. Today isn't it. Today the 950B represents the best 65 PQ there is. My opinion and why I purchased a second although I was seeking that 930D with bent problems and black levels not as good as what I already had in my current 950B.
I'm also a realist. There's considerable lack of HDR. Therefore I don't care for it. Only good source seems to be 4K BD and I'm not convinced that's a plausible solution unless the likes of Netflix make a subscription model as they do with their current DVD and BD 1080P. I'm not one to buy movies. Not my thing.
Netflix and Amazon have no current box office hit content offered in 4K. Adoption is going to be slow for that format as it is. HDR?
The benefit of 4K panels is the fact it upscales 1080P wonderfully as well as that's where all the technology is offered. I know of no 1080P FALD display. Something that is also becoming less available even with 4K due to the masses need for picture frame thin displays. Same fools who thought 4K is a must an Plasma wasn't.
I see DV as a solution to provide HDR with a lesser panel. DV has no benefit for panels like those offered by Sony in their upper tier models. Perhaps why they went with HDR10.
I tend not to trust LG or similar as I just don't believe they use the best components. You get what you pay for and I don't want less. Why I tend to buy Sony and have since I can recall and the TV that was in my home before I could afford my own. Sony isn't perfect but they tend to have that goal. Samsung I don't see always having that mindset and Sharp I lost trust in long before LCDs were the norm or Plasma first showed it's grace and $12k price tag. Will say that DLP was sweet and at the time provided a better picture with SD then did LCD and why I went that direction. Had Sony offered that technology then I would have gone there instead.
Guessing I'm a Sony fan boy. Reality is I want the best. LG OLED doesn't give me that impression. Never has. Don't know if it ever will. There's more to a purchase than how it looks on the first day.
I don't ask or require any to accept or agree with my thoughts. They are my thoughts, however. Please don't assume they are intended as amusement or some kidding around because I assure you that's furthest from the truth or intention.
