I think he mentioned both to give credit to his opinion.
Ah I see. Yeah that's possible. I read it as him saying "OLED and QLED are better than LCD" while QLED of course actually is
OLED has its issues as well though and though I always had envisioned "buying an OLED one day" (you know like back when Sony had that 11" one for like $5k or whatever lol), over time my opinion has definitely changed and I'm not much interested in OLED as a TV screen. On devices like phones, PS Vita, etc. it seems fine, but on a TV? Not so much. Not really willing to risk burn-in on such a large, expensive device with an expected lifespan of at least a decade (for me anyway).
I could have easily spend some extra money and bought an C8/E8 which is surely trumpeted as "the best TV ever tested on Rtings" and whatnot, but. I chose to go with a Z9D (of course not at the insane original retail prices, but at a price which was relatively cheap). TBH I'm not much interested in OLED TVs at the moment. Micro LED seems quite interesting but that is probably in the more distant future, perhaps whenever I end up getting an 8K set (another 10+ years I'd say).
While there are distinct advantages and disadvantages to every display type currently available, including the sub-types within it, what I've learned about LCDs over the years is that they are incredibly versatile. To me plasma was always a one-trick-wonder, and OLED nearly the same. LCDs are great for a wide variety of content and application within a particular display; and, there's quite a few types of LCDs in general (e.g. TN, IPS, VA, and then all the lighting types/techs) and that also makes for a wide variety of price points, applications, and displays for various devices. Say what you want about LCD but there's no denying it's probably the
definitive display technology of our lifetimes. I'm still quite happy with LCD and despite some of its disadvantages (DSE being the most noticeable) I'm quite happy with my new Z9D so far
Also pretty fine with the other three LCD TVs in my house, and the various LCD PC monitors, laptops, tablets, phones, car head units, etc. I have.
