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.

Thought I’d ask this question here instead of creating a new thread. 

 

 Bought the 55” Hisense OLED last year and have been really impressed with it. Moving at the end of the year and wanted to pick up the 65” for the living and move the 55” to the bedroom. But it looks like the model has been pulled from the stores. 
 

Does anyone know what actually happens In such cases? Do they get sent back to the manufacturer or are they sent to an outlet store and sold there?

Hi Bertdoozer 

I thought I’d weigh in to your enquiry and highly recommend the German made Loewe OLed Bild 3/65. The picture quality is stunning. Yes the panel is an LG panel, it’s integrated with a speaker system as well as some software called Ambio that sets the sound for your individual hearing level and comfort. The interesting thing about the Loewe TVs is that they have a video processor inbuilt that retunes the colour to a more natural balance providing a lifelike image and 3 dimensional image that really draws you into the picture. Anyone among the SNA community that has experienced Loewe TVs will attest to the picture and sound quality that has made Loewe a delight to own and enjoy. They are a little more expensive than the mainstream TVs however the additional cost is attributed to the luxury build and German engineering. 
These TVs are currently on special on my website with further savings if you have my discount code.

kind regards

Any OLED users experience vertical banding issue ?

https://reallysmartbuyers.com/vertical-banding-on-tv-screen-can-it-be-fixed/

I had some horizontal banding when there were high contrast scenes, usually night shots. Turned off all the auto contrast, and a couple of other auto functions, and it went away.

Have you tried any Youtube vertical banding test videos like this?

Not sure how much it matters given the other tech in it, which creates millions of dimming zones, but I saw that it was still an edge lit panel. I wonder if they will release a backlit panel, and if that would have any advantages in this particular set.

I dont honestly see any advantages to a FALD implementation ;considering its got 2 million precise zones that already has no blooming due to the sharp cutoff between black and the adjacent pixel/zone :) With that many dimming zones I cant see how the lesser number of direct luminance pixels could be an advantage so that meant edge lit for them.

Also if they did manage a FALD set ; how thick and heavy would it be ..

Ime easy pleased with the blacks of my qled though so anythings possible going forward; its still 1st gen tech 😉

Size aside, I was thinking it might make for a more precise or responsive system if the light doesnt have to travel from the edge, but I will freely admit I dont know enough about the tech side to know if that even makes sense.

Yes screen uniformity is better with direct lit rather than having to travel from one or both edges and getting gradients of brightness; keeping this separate from how precise the zones are [the more the better as thats what matters apparently ].  It could be a cost thing too ; a FALD version could be even dearer than an oled :$

      I picked up a new Sony 77" A9G 4K OLED  Master series TV today from Costco Perth for $4999. Everywhere else price is $8495.  There were still a couple left and I'm just letting people know in case they are in the market for one. The deal is not available online and I don't know about Costco in other states.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Brunswick State: Victoria Payment Method: Paypal, EFT Reason for selling: Upgrading Further information:
      Purchased April 25, 2020 from Appliances Online for $3590. I absolutely love this TV, but have decided that 65 inches just ain't big enough - so I'm going to upgrade to 77" if I can sell this one. It's in perfect condition, absolutely no dead pixels, scratches, etc. Full original packaging and accessories included, as well as receipt for purchase. Prefer pickup from Brunswick Victoria due to the estimated cost of delivery being extremely high. 
       
      If you don't know why this 120Hz, 4K, Variable Refresh Rate, HDMI 2.1-packing, HDR OLED is an absolute beast of a TV, there's a bunch of reviews online, like this one: https://www.tomsguide.com/reviews/lg-c9-oled
       
      To buy this year's model, the CX, will cost you at least $4,200, and from what I can gather, it's basically identical to the 2019 C9.

      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.

      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.

      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.
