I've been grappling with the same issue, except that I'm considering the LG E6
65" vs. the 940D. I currently have a 75" in a den, sitting about 9 1/2 feet away (having returned my original 65" because it didn't give me that WOW immersive experience; it's last year's 910c, by the way, which I bought for its sleek aesthetics. I've been very happy with the viewing experience at 9 1/2 feet away. It does have some blooming on a black screen when credits roll, but I've learned to live with that).
Now, for this dilemma for my 2nd TV, which will be in the living room - a more "design-y" room - viewing will be from 10 1/2 feet, so about a foot farther away than in the den. It should be a no brainer, right? (I returned a 65" in the smaller room, so why buy a 65' in the larger room?)
The reason is purely the aesthetics of not having a 75" TV be a "looming" presence in a more formal room as opposed to a den.
So I've spent oodles of time at BB, thinking that the only way that I'd downsize to a 65" TV would be for a TV whose PQ was the best on the market, hence, OLED. I can buy the 65" OLED and swap it out for the 75" 940D if I find that the 65" doesn't WOW me in the living room - but I'm really trying to avoid that.
My gut tells me that I'll have the same reaction that I had when my original 65" TV was unpackaged in the den. I knew immediately that it was too small and that I would never be satisfied with it. Turning it on confirmed the inevitable conclusion that it was going back. I'm slightly holding onto the possibility that turning on the OLED will be such a transformative experience that I would be satisfied with downsizing to the 65". But the 940D is a pretty great TV and even if the OLED is a little better, I sense that the 5% better PQ of the OLED won't compensate for the drop from 75" to 65".
So I'm leaning towards the 940D.
Curious if anyone else wishes to weigh in.
