HDTV Test have just completed their 2017 HD TV shootout - with the Panasonic EZ1000, Sony A1, LG B7, Samsung Q9 QLED and Sony ZD9.

Best home theatre TV: Panasonic EZ1000, runner up A1

 

Best living room TV: Sony A1, runner up EZ1000

 

Best HDR & gaming: LG B7

 

Best overall TV: Panasonic EZ1000, runner up B7

 

For OLED, commentary seems to reflect what reviews I have previously read - Panasonic has slightly better colour accuracy and picture quality, whereas Sony has better video processing and up-scaling.

 

As for the LCDs, the Samsung QLED scored the best for bright room/anti-reflection, but was nowhere to be seen in any of the other categories, and the Sony ZD9 also failed to get any real traction against the OLEDs.

They're missing the best OLED TV on the market IMO, The LG C7, NZ pricing for it is stupidly inflated but it's an amazing panel.

I have seen quite a few 4K HDR streams now from Netflix and YouTube on my EZ1000 and the PQ, Colours etc are amazing. HDR makes a big difference. I have turned OFF HDR on the same video, watched it and then turned ON and the difference is day and night in colours reproduction. Also the EZ1000 is plenty bright for HDR even during day time.





Do whatever you want to do man.
