Most of the manufacturers are moving away from LCD/LEDs to OLED.
Waiting to see how Samsung makes out with their supposedly new OLED panels that overcome all the LG short comings. Read somewhere, not so good so far.
Would be interesting to compare LED and OLED performance comparisons after 5 years of use. 10 years of use. (I know, a bit stretching since most of us don't keep our primary sets that long.)
Question: if the 70R is so bad, why did Rtngs.com rate it best LCD/LED for 2019 ? Installed the 49" 70R in the wife's bedroom and was very impressed. While waiting for the wife to pick out a new cell phone at BB, a Sony and the 70R were on display facing the service center. Wife said they were both excellent, but didn't like the Sony reflecting all the store lighting. The 70R didn't. So it's not a case here of whether the OLED is better than the LCD/LED, but for those not wanting to go OLED, I was suggesting it as an alternative. Every set has it's pluses and minuses, it's just a case of what suits your fancy. (From reading this forum, it appears OLED is a panel lottery - win some, lose some.)
