Iv been going back and fourth between the LG's and decided to wait till after CES 2018 to see what the new models will have in store.


I went to best buy today and looked again and a sony sales rep asked me to take a look at the sony Oled A1 tv, looked impressive but not as good as the LG E7 I was eyeballing plus the rep did not know the difference between the E7 and the A1.
I really wanted a LG OLED as well, I was about to pull the trigger on one until I looked into the burn-in issue as well. Literally everything about the TV was perfect besides that issue (great input lag, great picture, perfect motion response, perfect viewing angles, webOS, configurability, etc...) It was just way too much money to baby a TV and run the risk long-term.

I was going to wait until the 2018 models as well, but the black friday week prices on the Sony models (and the LG OLED models as well) was too good to pass up, so I picked up a 65" 930E. If LG can work out the burn-in issues next year, I may pick up one as well.

As for the Sony A1 OLED, it uses a LG panel (same as they use in the LG OLED 2017 series) but uses Sony's circuitry. RTings has a good review of it up on their site, if I recall the only standout features are some of Sony's picture customizations, Sony also has a better gradient-mapping algorithm that you won't really notice. The downsides are the price and the input lag is worse than the OLED model.

Review is here: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/sony/a1e-oled

RTings' snippet on this A1E versus the LG OLED is this:
Quote:
The C7 is LG's entry-level OLED TV. It is very similar to the A1E overall, and it offers picture quality that is virtually identical. It's also capable of displaying highlights slightly brighter for HDR, and lower input lag for gaming. On the other hand, the Sony A1E has smoother gradients and flickering motion feature. If you don't mind 24p judder over 60p and a slightly higher input lag, then the A1E may be a better choice, otherwise, go with whichever is cheaper.

First post on this forum, I'm in the UK and usually use AV Forums, but this post was such a great read and I have a question!

I already have a 65 LG B6 Oled. I want to use our spare bedroom for a gaming room, and would be in pitch black with a little bias lighting.

I'm used to the perfect blacks of an Oled but also the negatives such as some colour gradient issues and mostly image retention (yellow in particular causes it) and this can affect the enjoyment of a long gaming session, so I looked into some alternatives and came across a few VA panels, this Sony XE93 and the XE90 caught my attention.

In all honesty, what is it like in a pitch black room? Bloom too noticeable or not that bad? Everything I read says the set is bright and ideal for light rooms but I need to know if I am going to see a lot of bloom on games in a dark room, dark moody titles such as Evil Within 2 for example.

I'd only be using the set for gaming, on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, PS3, Xbox 360 and Nvidia Shield (ideal for emulation!)

Thanks in advance!

If anyone updated to OREO ( I updated to it today) and are using these settings for 4K gaming, I will be posting a new update as OREO messed around with it a bit.

Resurrecting a dead thread...but did you post the updates? Would love to check them out as I think Oreo definitely tweaked some things under the hood.


Thanks!
