BUT I have to DISAGREE about going the LCD route because it is cheaper, NO WAY.... the difference is night and day!!
I am totally satisfied with a 2016 Oled, it might not get as bright as an LCD, but it is perfect for me!!! Definitely worth it just for the blacks
But of course the blacks is not the only good thing... look at the color, the details, etc... for me thats way better than any LCD
Even my mobile is OLED... and I am never buying any LCD again
I just cant wait until 4k is everywhere... but I know it will take time because it is a lot of bandwidth
To be completely honest, I originally bought a Vizio M-Series (70") LCD set before the OLED B6 - and for the most part, the picture of the Vizio looked just as good as the B6 *to me*. Keep in mind that I'm getting older and my eyesight isn't what it used to be, so that may play a part.
To me, the biggest benefit of OLED is that you don't have to deal with light bleed related issues.
I returned the Vizio because it had very obvious vertical "bands" when viewed from an angle (was fine when viewed head-on though) - otherwise, I was perfectly happy with the picture quality of the Vizio and would have kept it. Yes, the colors started to wash out if viewed from extreme angles, but even the OLED has color shift issues when viewed from angles.
I'm honestly not bothered by "imperfect" blacks. I still say that, overall, the picture on my older 1080p Vizio set (4 years old, edge-lit) for things like cable (which is the vast majority of what I watch) is better than my B6. Less noise, less noticeable "pixelation", smoother, artifact-free motion (with motion interpolation enabled) and just a sharper image in general - again *for cable/FIOS*. No, the blacks aren't nearly as black as the B6, but for whatever reason, that just doesn't bother me (or my wife).
I honestly think that modern LCD sets get a bad rap. It seems that a LOT of people went from Plasma to OLED and just don't realize just how far LCD tech has come (those people haven't owned an LCD for many years). If you can get a good, light-bleed-free LCD, they are an amazing value and have excellent picture quality - and the FALD sets have VERY good blacks. I've been very un-impressed with the whole 4k/HDR thing (regardless of whether it's an LCD or OLED set). Again, maybe it's partly due to my aging eyesight, but I really can't see the difference between 720p/1080p/4k. Even HDR so far has been underwhelming to me...
I know this won't be a very popular post in this OLED thread, but just my experiences and opinions. In the end, I went OLED because of the rave reviews and fact that there are no potential light bleed issues (didn't feel like dealing with potential light bleed issues and exchanges for LCD sets) - but I'm not so sure I'd go OLED again in the future, based on cost and *my usage* of the TV... A lot depends on how long the OLED lasts (my LCD sets seem to last forever).
