Which will be my viewing for 60-70 percent of the time.
Now which OLED tv? I am undecided between the 3. LG OLED C8, Panasonic FZ950/952 or Sony A8F or A9F?
Which OLED Tv are you looking at getting and when?
Looking forward to hearing what you think of the OLED TV when you get one compared to the Sony X900F TV.
Thanks in advance for any helpful advice.
Assuming you do have dimming turned on. If not try med to high.
You will get a bit of bleed on HDR content. SDR should not see any bleed. Dimming is not enabled in certain menus. Netflix opening screen isn't enabled but when selecting your profile and in the selection screen it should look normal.
Probably not the best place to discuss pros and cons for different TVs. But I'm in Australia too the thing I will say about Sony still has the best motion, upscaling, clarity, etc. Although the new LG C8 is a good improvement over the C7. Most of our free to air content is still 576p and the Sony TVs do the best job of upscaling. If your watching foxtel extensively than they have a pretty awful compression techniques.
If you watch TV in a very dark room OLED be better or use bias lighting.
If your set on getting an OLED the A8F would be a good choice. LG C8 is a flagship TV and usually $1000 cheaper than equivalent A8F. I do like Sony and LG TVs it's always a difficult choice.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, I have local dimming set to high and same issue.
At the Netflix profile selection screen and selection screen I can see a fair bit of blooming or clouding. I am confused whether his is normal. The blooming or clouding is excessive on non auto local dining screens like Netflix load screen or Sony start up screen. Do you think this normal?
The Sony A8F is a little out of my price range. So looking at the LG C8 or Panasonic FZ950 which is equivalent to the C8 and has very good reviews. A bit undecided if I should stick with the Sony (is OLED going to give me a much better viewing experience) and if I don’t then I don’t know whether to get the C8 or FZ950?
Hoping for good Boxing Day sale prices on either the C8 or Fz950.
My normal viewing habit is Foxtel HD sport, some FTA stuff, Netflix(Movies and other stuff) and Kayo sport if I chose to cancel my Foxtel subscription. I will be watching tv in a semi darkish room but still have light in the room from front lounge window and kitchen light in the back ground at night.
What is a good forum to discuss pros and cons on TVs?
Thanks heaps for your help.
