Another OLED vs LCD Post
I know there are a ton of OLED vs LCD threads out there, but I may need to make a semi-quick decision so wanted to post a new thread.
I currently own a 55” Samsung JS8500 LCD TV (2015). I’m looking to upgrade to something bigger and better. Plus, I plan on giving my current set to my little brother as a graduation gift. I’ve always wanted to give OLED a try, but wasn’t sure if it was the best fit based on my usage. I had expected to go with a Samsung Q90R based on preliminary reviews (also get a workplace discount). However, reviews released today still indicate there are some black level issues, no Dolby Vision, and does not have all full HDMI 2.1 features. I just got notification that Best Buy has reduced prices on the 65 C8 pretty substantially, which is making me question my decision. I know that the C9 will have full HDMI 2.1, but I thought that purchasing the 2018 model would give me an opportunity to try OLED at a much better price (thus offsetting some of the risk).
Here is my usage:
75% TV (very little news or sports)
Whatever set I purchase will be in an open living room with a fair amount of light.
So my question is will OLED be the best idea for my usage? My two main concerns are burn-in from gaming or any on screen logos from TV, as well as watching in a more well lit environment (I have read this eliminates/reduces the pure black benefit of an OLED). My local Best Buy has one last C8 in stock, so may want to make a decision fairly quickly.
Thanks for your help!
