65” OLED - Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Looking for peoples thoughts on 65” OLED TV.  We watch a lot of sports, room has no reflections etc so good for OLED.

 

my short list

1.   LG CX

2.  Sony A9G

 

any others I should look at

Would add the LG BX to the list - not much of a difference in picture quality to the CX.

 

Hunt and you may even find a 9 series LG around and could haggle that to a very good price (again little to differentiate in quality from the X series).

 

Just comes down to the best price you can get and what you are prepared to pay:)

The Sony A9G or the soon to be released Sony A8H would be my pick. Sony has the best motion handling of all Oled tv's.

I wouldn't go for the LG BX as it uses a lower level processor than the LG CX!

I would go for the Sony.

 

I have the older A8f model and it is an amazing picture, still amazed at the difference to my old plasma.

I have a 55" C9 and can't fault it. I don't remember specifics against the Sony now, but all the reviews I read leaned towards the LG. My wife doesn't love the wand-like pointer from the remote, but we can all navigate fairly well now. 

 

I'm not sure where you need the extra processing power of the CX over the BX, but if you're into sport and have a decent 4k feed it probably can't hurt. 

 

My father-in-law is looking at the 55 BX or CX, so if anyone finds a good reason for the CX over the BX, or the Sony over the LG, it would be helpful info.

We have LG and Hisense OLEDs.

I find OLED superior to anything else, hard to go back once you have real blacks.

I find the difference between different OLED panels much more subtle. The big difference between LG and Hisense is the Android TV in the LG, it is a far superior and easier to use interface with way more programming and music options.

Agree that the smart TV software on the Hisense isn't award winning, however, with the price diff you can pick up a 4K Apple TV and that problem is sorted and you'll still have some change left over.

For picture quality, me thinks Sony has a very slight edge due to their processor. For day to day usability LG Web OS is the best out there - just try their magic remote in shops like JB or HN.

      Item: LG 65" OLED UHD TV (2016 model)
      Location: Carnegie, Melbourne
      Price: $3,200 ono
      Item Condition: perfect condition and still have original box with all included foam to assist with transporting the TV. 
      Reason for selling: upgrading to projector. 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash or net banking transfer. 
      Extra Info: I bought this back in Feb and it still has 6 months left of manufacturer warranty, plus I opted for the 5 year product care option with Harvey Norman when I purchased it. According to the Harvey Norman web site this is transferable so the new owner will have the same cover. It's an amazing tv, and supports HDR10 along with Dolby Vision as well. It's running the latest FW v4.31.10, and I have it plugged into a Samsung k8500 uhd bd player and happy to demo any of my 50 UHD blu rays or you can bring your own of course.

      I'm currently on holidays overseas, but will be back this Sunday.

      according to Vincent at HDTV test, (he is VERY excited about this) this is a very significant TV in being THE first to support both DV and HDR10+ ( I always thought LG supported both). But anyways it appears the beta v VHS the video formats has been busted in this case. Panasonic has already supported both DV and HDR10+ in their new 9000 uhd player. Finally have a TV that supports both.
       
      so Finally rather than being a beta v VHS battle. now we will have more a situation like in audio formats with Dolby vs DTS with makers hopefully supporting both video formats as well in due course.
       
      as Vincent says this thing will now be HOT property. Panasonic was already declared in shoots outs by HDTV to give the most accurate colours, intact quite accurate out of box anyways. 
       
      be interesting when it is released in AU and for how much....hopefully pana not running aways too much with this set at too much of a premium ! 
       
      ps its up firing atmos speakers stuck to back of the telly is an interesting feature. also good to understand its hdmi 2.1 support which is really limited to latency only with hooking upto x box one x at this stage. something to be wary about hdmi 2.1 where makers will only support certain features as they are totally allowed to do within the spec.

      Hi. Is there a clear cut winner in terms of OLED TVs yet?
       
      Is it worth waiting for the new models?
       
      A friend is finally replacing the 12 year old plasma I gave him a few years ago.
       
      Budget is $5k. Hopefully buys a 65” from what I’ve seen.
       
      I know they’re all LG screens but apparently that doesn’t make LG best.

      I know OLED is more expensive, but it must be worth the money. It can't make the value that high without having good features. What would you choose?
