I am interested in this as well. Trying to decide between this and the Sony X850G.

I really want the Sony 900f but this LG is $400 cheaper. And it’s a 2019 TV with Dolby Vision also

My only issue with the SM8600 (which I honestly thought was just a non-fald version of the SM9000) are detailed here: https://hdguru.com/hdmi-2-1-features...tvs-clarified/


Quote:
LG OLED TV models in the W9, E9, C9 Series and LG NanoCell LED-LCD TVs in 9500 and 9000 Series will support 4K HFR over both HDMI 2.1 and USB inputs. Models in the NanoCell 8600 Series will support HFR only through USB input. This is to be added via a forthcoming firmware update.

Quote:
LG’s W9 Series 4K OLED TVs, and LG 8600 Series NanoCell TVs will not support VRR. Among 2019 9000 Series NanoCell TVs, only the 55- and 65-inch screen sizes will support VRR.

No idea how trustful the website is/what there sources are, but it was enough to scare me away from getting the SM8600 (which sucks, because I was really tempted to get the 49" version for my PC/XB1X).


Personally, I would rather have the X900F instead of the SM8600 (unless you do not care about contrast too much), but $400 is a decent amount.

Thanks for this information. Hopefully I’ll find a deal on Sony 900f

I bought the 49" variant of the display and have returned after about 24 hours.
I am limited on size due to viewing area, sonit seemed like a good fit.

Black levels are pretty bad, pair this with an edge lit dimming scheme which left huge columns from the bottom to the top of the screen with the smallest icon on the screen and this made for a less than stellar viewing experience.

Now if youre going to have this in a well lit room at all times it may not be as much of an issues, but as soon as you turn of the lights the picture get pretty sub par.
