So my 30 days is coming to end (unless when you do an exchange at BB you get 30 more days from the date that you did the exchange) and I have to decide to keep or not. Now since I got a price adjustment on Friday to lower price it is a really good deal for a 75" 4K TV but I just wonder if I should stick with my plasma until this fall and then revisit just to see what the 2019 TV's have to offer. The upcoming TCL 8 series has me interested and OLED's always catch my eye but just waiting for them to be a bit more affordable.
Now the TV itself really does impress me in most aspects, but coming from an emissive panel the blooming (while not overly bad and to my eye better than my buddies Sony X950G) does bother me a bit. I also noticed this past week a little vertical banding in the screen which I am guessing is from the FALD zones. During most viewing it is not a problem but certain shots (particularly a pan with the sky as a backdrop) do make it jump out and as much as I try not to notice it it gets the attention of my eye.
Not sure if I should try one more exchange to see if I can get a TV without any vertical banding, live with it, or just realize that OLED is my only upgrade path and return it and wait some more. I really do like the 4K content along with HDR though which is why I may just say F it and keep it.
