All depends on whats most important for you!
For me, immersion, sports, price and warranty, were my 4 hot buttons, and this set nails all these. I also love the LG UI and the Magic remote, vastly superior to the Sammy, IMO. The off axis viewing is the best I’ve had on any set I’ve owned, most recently an old Sharp 80”.
The only other set in the market presently that I was interested in was the Sony XBR85X900F, but even with true fald, it has it’s flaws too, some very minor screen imperfections, input content picture adjustment issues (just like this set), but mainly the high price point. With the Costco deal I got, after taxes, 7 year warranty, various discounts, etc...my 86 pub was $2,500 landed. To add the equivalent of the Costco warranty to the Sony and tax you are talking at least $2000+ more than the LG, essentially another 86” TV!
With my warranty, this set will take me down the road to the point there is an 85”+ affordable $4K-$5K OLED set.
It appears I am in the minority here on screen uniformity, my set has no corner or screen imperfections, banding or bad pixels. I have the service remote and the local dimming appears to do nothing, IMO. One note, I do have an old Darbee Darblet video enhancer, and I have been able to use it on occaision to brighten the LG on darker 1080P content over my Dish STB.
Bottom line, if an LG IPS panel won’t cut it for you, I would recommend the Sammy 82 Q6 and not the NU 8000, smallish price difference for a better set IMO, and fairly close in size to the LG.
