Personally I'd go OLED

Not true, if you take the time to read "professional reviews" of the JS9500 vs the JS9000, you will see they were very closely matched, and with certain contrast enhancements turned on, the edge lit SUHD actually edged out the Fald in contrast ratio, albeit not by much and not significant.
The reviewer summed it up as "only in a very dark room would one might notice a difference between the two", that is not to say both were not great, however.
I wished I would have saved all those old TVs I usta work on where the flyback transformers went out and the customer had a "Perfectly Black Screen", I could make a fortune selling those to Ken, and some others that think the only thing that matters is black.
Take the time to read some of the professional reviews on the OLED sets, complaints, they cant be calibrated, multi colored snow or ice, banding, poor upscaling, poor motion, You name it!
Being a Techqie I really wanted to go OLED, and I really hope the 2015 models are better, but I'm not willing to give everything else up for black.
Gary goes off to see if he can find any of those old TV's that have "Perfect Blacks"
