I came back from CES thinking I'd probably find a way to upgrade my C6 for a C7, but after watching Kubo and the 2 Strings in 3D last night with the family, I don't think it's worth it for us.
3D is dead, there will probably be an end to new 3D content announced soon, but there is an awful lot of 3D content already released that we have not seen yet.
The C6 (and E/G6
) is the penultimate 3D television ever to see the light of day, and I think I'm going to feel better just enjoying perfect Rec.709 Blurays, the best in-home 3D ever, and whatever limited version of HDR10 (clipping) and Dolby Vision (no Golden File) I can over the next few years while HDR continues to evolve and settles down.
We're now in the middle of a race to achieve Rec.2020 at 4000 Nits with 'Full color-volume' and this is going to continue for at least another 5 years. In the meantime, standards are going to continue to evolve and things like broadcast HDR are likely to emerge.
The 2017 OLEDs are a step closer in that race than the 2016 OLEDs were, but honestly, the 2018 OLEDs are almost certan to be that much better again and the 2019 OLEDs beyond them.
If 3D holds no interest for you, a 2017 OLED would be a better choice that a B6. If you value 3D at all (or are even open to the idea and willing to evaluate
), picking up a C6 (or E6) before they dissapear may be the better choice...
