That was my thoughts on the C9 as well. I have C7 and didnt have any issues eventhough I game A LOT and played a ton of games with static bars (Dark Souls, Mortal Kombat, Destiny, etc).

Nice! I have a C6 [would get moved to my bedroom if I get anything newer]. OLED is amazing, but I would like something a little more forgiving with Switch games (Smash has a lot of bright red hud elements) and guests. Something like the SM9000 would be perfect for everything except pillar/letter boxes (for whatever reason, the IPS "blacks" within the scene don't bother me too much).
120hz + eArc should be all I need for a while.
Hopefully, you have good things to say!

I know blacks aren't going to be VA, but just as long as everything is respectable. I really won't be watching in a dark room most of the time. At night I have a lamp next to the couch I use to light up the room. And during the day (when I'm at home) I open the blinds.
I'm coming from an X900E. Gonna miss that tv (selling it to my sister), but I want something with better compatibility with my OSSC and better input lag. I've thought of going the OLED route, but I always get the burn in thought in my head which pushes me away
This is exactly my reasoning, when I was still with my parents (saving on rent for the win!), the OLED [and the various FALD VA sets I've owned] was [were] great. Now that I moved, I generally do not open the blinds so that I don't have to jack up the OLED light. Would be nice to watch TV and have the blinds/windows open. I do recommend a bias light though; gave my dad my HU8700 (he also likes 3D) and man, the contrast on that thing was sub-par for what it retailed for. Tossed a bias light on the back and I think it looks much
I too am interested in darker games, though Dark Souls is probably dark enough for me.
Even owning an OLED and not having any issues with it doesn't help those burn-in thoughts [and I keep my OLED light at like 15!]. If 3D didn't die, I wouldn't care so much about my C6; but it gets harder and harder to find 3D TVs
(though I may have found a UH8500 locally; IPS FTW!).

I was going to wait another year but I have a TV that super old and really want to fully enjoy my backlog of games I have for my PS4 PRO and also be prepare for next year PS5.
It is supposed to, but it does not seem to support 120hz 4k 4:2:0 over HDMI 2.0
like the Samsung Q900 and there are no (as far as I know) HDMI 2.1 output devices to test for 120hz functionality. I think it would be a huge issue if LG advertised it and they did not have it (they advertise all 4 inputs as being HDMI 2.1, which makes this thing so awesome! eArc for atmos when plugging in directly to the TV for the full benefits, and anything that is only HDMI 2.0 goes directly to my AVR [which supports eArc but not HDMI 2.1]).
