Either the C6 or the E6 (C6 over B6 because I want the 3D. Curved is okay but flat is better).
I would like the better sound with the E6 but $500 premium just for better sound isn't worth it. The reviews say it has slightly higher brightness - but otherwise same picture as the B6/C6.
However the E6 has "Picture-on-glass". What is that and does it add any value?
In terms of your thread title, the answer is 'no'.
If you watch in the dark, the C6 has all the brightness you need (and I doubt there is any consistent deference between the C and the E anyway, but whatever).
You can get a full-blown basic 5.1 surround-sound system for $500 (with subwoofer). Will it be stare-of-the-art? No. But it will sound much better than the E6's built-in system...
I spent a bit more than that (about $700) for a 5.1.2 Atmos system with a modern Matantz AVR (NR1606) and a full set of Infinity bookshelf speakers with 12" Klipsch Subwoofer...
And picture-on-glass is nothing more than taking 'thinness' down to the next extreme.
Instead of of being 1/4" thick and having a silver bezel around the edge, the 'picture-on-glass design amounts to leaving off the bezel and the plastic backing so the the TV is only 1/8" thick and has a clear see-through 1/4" wide glass extension on all 4 sides of the OLED.
Looks fragile (and even slightly dangerous) to me and I was not the least bit interested.
You won't even notice the curve of the C6 after watching for a week or two (especially viewing in the dark).
Attached is a pic of my set-up. Took about a year to put together, but very happy with the outcome (especially for under $4000 all-in including the custom wooden TV stand
