I got one of these earlier in the year and everything works, apart from the sound is very "squeaky".

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

And oled is only 1.5k more. Not really comparable.

My television is on a corner and the sound bounced around behind it and was a shocker. Sound bar was the answer! I think all these large thin TV's are much better with a sound bar.

I have a 65" Panasonic EZ950 OLED and sound is fantastic considering this thing is super slim. I have separate centre and L/R front speakers connected, but to be honest, for normal TV watching we never feel the need to power them up!

Money well spent if you are going to own the telly for many years. I have a late model Sony LCD and a Panny OLED and the difference is light and day.

It may well indeed be money well-spent, but only if you have that money in the first place!

Sorry, but I do find this incredibly presumptuous, in assuming that anyone looking for a tv has a choice as to whether to spend $1800 or $3200. That’s simply not the case.

Picture quality is in the eye of the beholder. or another way of putting it, you won't know what you're missing out if you don't use an oled. i'm quite happy with washed out blacks as long as the colour presentation is acceptable. and it is, it's like the cinema.

 

you do NOT see oled perfect blacks and vibrant colours of the iphone XS in the cinema. if you want to watch a giant iphone XS / galaxy s9 buy an oled tv. but in fact at the cinema you get this washed out flickering look at all but 24 frames per second. and I like that look on my TV.

Ahh  -  um  - mmm  -  no thanks. Love the OLED.

 

But beauty, eye, beholder etc as you say.

With the issue of burn-ins etc is OLED going to last as many years as an LCD?

Maybe not - but if the OLED get burned-in and crappy, good excuse to go back out and buy the latest greatest model.

Fair point, but it is interesting to note that, historically, TVs were very expensive, yet most families had one.

 

For example, I remember Dad paying about $800 for our first 26" colour TV in 1974 - that's about $9,000 in today's money.

 

And my first TV was a Panasonic 29" in 1990 for $3,600 - that's over $6,000 today.

 

Today, an OLED for $3,500 is pretty good value for money when compared against history.

He probably kept it for 20 years or more. I'm amazed at the relatively new flat panel tvs being shrink wrapped onto pallets at my local tip.

Yep, if you can buy a flat panel from the warehouse for $600, why not upgrade it in a couple of years, and then again, and again.

 

Less likely to do if you forked out a big sum in the first place.

But the boomers will still go on about people wasting their money on "big 40 inch plasmas" and other nonsense.
