Woah!

 

Sony OLED

 

Samsung QLED

 

HiSense quantum ULED dots too.

 

 

 

 

 

Looks like LG (even with their new TVs)  finally got some competition!

LG have improved their OLED as well and it looks stunning.

 

The other vendors may spend a bit of time playing catch up though - not necessarily on picture quality, but production is difficult.

Sony aren't producing their panels. Likely they will use LG panels, but not confirmed.

 

An LG panel with Sony's superior motion control and up-scaling sound like the business.

 

The Panasonic 65" offering sounds fantastic - I suspect the best of the lot, but will we see it on this side of the globe?

 

One thing for certain, they will all be expensive for the next year or two while both Sony and Panasonic keep offering LCD as well.

It was interesting while I was at CES last year that Samsung were the only ones trash talking the LG OLED - both Sony and Panasonic were very coy about plans and certainly weren't pitching their products as a superior option. Having said that Panasonic do have some very good LCD panels, no doubt based on their experience with the Plasma range.

Apparently PCs are big this year. It is back to the future a little. I suppose the microsoft surface and laptop offerings have helped with this

Any GZers actually at CES 2017?
The LG OLED is interesting from a slimness perspective. I wonder how the soundbar that contains all the processing and display power and drivers, as well as Atmos speakers, will interact with HT receivers.

With other manufacturers finally offering OLED, LG may not be able to charge a premium for being the only one with that technology. I understand the manufacturing process is more expensive but economies of scale must start to come into play over the next few years. I will be interested to see how this generation fares with burn in. I would assume the manufacturers that were leaders in plasma technology will have a fair idea how to avoid it.

I can't wait to see Sony and Panasonic OLED in the flesh.

 

I love my Sony 4K TV (currently showing my daughters "The Iron Giant" on bluray with awesome upscaling... Would actually look amazing with HDR) so I'm guessing I'll have issues getting the other half to be onboard for an update.. :/

 

 

 

Android TV makes it Sony for me but if the Panasonic kills it.... yell

I think this has a lot to do with Apple's lackluster product refresh as well as the fact we're seeing both brand new Nvidia and Intel products being released (GTX 1050 + quad core Kaby Lake).

I think you are right to say that the surface influenced and helped shape modern PCs being popular in the eyes of mainstream tech media (at least the high end Ultrabook/Win Tablet class) but I think the biggest thing was Intel's mobile chipsets power requirements coming down dramatically (architecture shrinks, and more dedicated on silicone chips for video playback etc).

I think the majority of Intel competition has been from ARM as of late, and I'm excited again to see ARM64 running Windows to keep Intel Competitive (to keep the low power train keeping on chugging)... ATOM for mobile may be once again on the cards (they dropped the roadmap as soon as WinRT was end of life).

On Desktops Intel has had no competition from AMD and there has been no significant improvement in performance on Kaby Lake vs even the 2011 Sandy Bridge. AMD this year is supposed to be pulling no punches, so hopefully we see in a year or 2 (after the node shrink to 10mm) a significant improvement in performance bundled with an improvement in R&D from Intel.

Back on topic...
QLED the most deceptive new buzzword.

Ive got a Sony 55x850c (4K HDR with Android TV) and if I had more money I would go OLED with an Nvidia Shield TV. Android TV on Sony is SLOW. :)

Have you got the latest updates?, because mine is smooth as butter. I don't use FTA TV on it, but all the android bits are quick as. I'm a user of plex, redbull tv, amazon, netflix, and more and have never had a slow response.

Have Sony by chance shown off a 4K blu-ray player there?
