I'll take the bait!
The 77" was my main set at my old home. I thought I had reached the pinnacle of TV's. I was enthralled and loved everything about it. Still do to a certain extent. I only had plasma sets prior and I never wanted to deal with the compromises of LCD TV's. I even had Chad B calibrate it for me.
The family room in my new home has a lot light (my home in general does) and the location of the set was not desirable for a wall mount of the OLED as it cannot be mounted flush to the wall. So, I thought I would give the QLED a try and moved the OLED to a loft area. I had every expectation to not be happy with the QLED and figured it would go back to the store and I would put OLED back in its place.
I was wrong.
Overall for everyday viewing, I prefer the QLED. This is coming from someone that has 4 LG OLED's. I have a 55" 9300, 55" 9500 and 55E6P in bedrooms plus the 77" in the loft. I love them all dearly. Fantastic sets, especially in these better light controlled bedrooms.
OLED does produce a better picture, but only in the right environment and with the right content. This is my experience. I learned that OLED had its own set of compromises too. Yes the absolute black is spectacular, but how much TV was I watching to take advantage of that? I did not realize this until I tried out the QLED.
In striving to reach the holy grail of TV's, I learned that they simply do not exist. The QLED could get "close" to the OLED in those darker movies/dark scenes, but the OLED could not come close to the QLED in brightness and pop.
Yes, I deal with blooming on the QLED when off axis, but I don't watch it off axis. Yes, the blacks are not 100% black, but I really don't notice it all that much as I am never watching it in complete darkness. I have almost zero reflections in the QLED, something I still deal with on the OLED in the loft.
Considering all the trade offs, QLED was better for my situation. If only OLED could get brighter.
We are finally getting my family room redecorated this month and I have room for an 85" set. I may go with the Q950TS as it would look stunning in the room with its no gap wall mount. It is everything I like about my QLED plus some. I am in no hurry to make the switch, but I know that in a few weeks when my family room is done that I will want to complete it.
That leaves me with 2 large sets for the loft and I need to decide what to do. I have light issues in my loft also and think that my current QLED would be better served up there.
I would love to put 77' OLED in my bedroom, but know that I would need to get divorced first.
It only has 4,411 hours on it.
Perhaps the QLED could go on my patio.

Can't debate that one!
It is such a shame that LG OLED didn't exist when 3D launched. I really think 3D would have gained more traction if it did. It is such a jaw dropping experience with its passive glasses and crystal clear portrayal.
