I have made the decision of getting OLED as soon as price is under 3K for 65 which i got at Super Bow LG C6 , I will never go back to LCD, I will replace my LCD when possible with OLED, my OLED is in bright room and it is very bright enough for me. Edge lit super bright LCD with super light bleed are selling for more price than OLED is insane and making fool of customer with specs and numbers bright is mantra but in the process light bleed in unwatchable at night if you bring the bright down then why did you buy this tv in first place. Some of the offering of FALD sets are no better considering price point and their of axis viewing is still problem.
Samsung QLED marketing hype will end very soon when customers will realize they are duped, i don't see the price of 65 inch Tv sustaining 4-5K. they are slightly better than their edge lit 1.5K HDR sets. 5-6K OLED HDR sets sony will be hard to sustain, LG OLED really took traction with 2999.99 price last year no one buying them at 5K.
See, I've had a different experience with LCD. I currently have 4 LCD's in my house and not one has a hint of light bleed - or clouding for that matter. Granted, I've not owned a large-screen Samsung LCD in particular, but the Vizio, Panasonic and Toshiba LCD's that I do have simply do not have light bleed issues (all edge-lit) - and the Panasonic and Toshibas are probably 10+ years old! I did exchange the Vizio once when I first bought it because of minor light bleed though.
But I agree - light bleed remains a big potential issue with LCD - and it's one of the reason I went with OLED - after dealing with the banding issue on the Vizio M-series (including 1 exchange), I didn't feel like playing the "lottery" and potentially having to exchange another (different) LCD model. But OLED has it's own set of potential issues, as seen in these threads (banding, IR/burn-in, uniformity, motion, highlighting issues with poor quality sources, etc). If you get a good, light-bleed free LCD, they can be pretty damn impressive, especially considering the price. And FALD LCD makes potential light bleed issues MUCH less "obvious" (and they have MUCH better blacks).
Maybe I've just been lucky with the LCD's that I've owned - or maybe it's because I've never owned a big-screen Samsung LCD! :-) It's strange - most people seem to think that Samsung makes great LCD sets, but I've seen a lot of complaints about them recently.
