Can't wait for MicroLED TVs, but in the meantime I prefer FALD LED over OLED.

 

The lack of brightness is a major issue for OLED and HDR content.

I guess the two biggest factors are viewing angle and peak luminance. For the most clear imagine, OLED. For the highest peak, QLED.

If you have an OLED in your home and not side by side in a store, it's almost never a thought on brightness.

 

And MicroLED will certainly be interesting. Seems like best of both worlds.

 lol - Then if you own one, i think you need to return it for one that works...  ;)

 

My C8 has more than enough brightness with HDR to HURT your eyes in bright screens.  Sometimes I think it's too bright.

It really depends on your viewing environment. As they explain, if watching in a dark room, OLED is bright enough. But if in a brighter room, then a brighter display is more beneficial. There is no one size fits all with this stuff. My viewing environment lighting changes through the day, so I would favor something with a higher peak. When it comes to upgrade my display, that will be something that I will be considering.

Sure - but I (and all the professional reviewers I guess) have never considered the brightness to be a 'major issue' - a consideration yes, but not an issue.

I think it would depend on the individual. 'Professional reviewers' certainly don't speak for my preferences. And if an individual is choosing a display primarily based on it's HDR peak luminance, and intends to use it for excessive viewing of HDR media, then I would think it would be a 'major' consideration. When it comes to reviews, the reviewer's preference should be ignored. Only the data points should be remembered. There is after all, no accounting for taste.

I have oled a8f and it is worth every cent everything looks so much better from sd to 4k. My room is bright and I have no issues with it.

Looking at some OLEDs on Amazon and I see this on a comparison screen, WTF does it mean?

That's what OLED basically is. The image is right on the surface, as opposed to be being behind a screen. They explain that in the YouTube video. It's a large part of why the picture is so good, and the reason why the viewing angle is amazing.

If I had the money oled why not. The picture is gorgeous. But qled is pretty great as well. I have my eye on the TCL 65R625. 65" qled for $800. Hope to get one in the next month or so.

A big problem I would have with an OLED is burn in. My display is largely used for Windows desktop. So lots of static images. Not a good thing for OLED.

Just don't watch cable news 24/7, for both your oled's sake and your own sanity

Yes that is a concern. My HTPC gets little usage and hardly any at the desktop. I would have a bigger problem with the Shield desktop when I just leave it sitting there.

I ended up getting the new TCL 65r625. Looking forward to some qled and real hdr, the Samsung I have was a Black Friday budget model and HDR is super dim. Colors are pretty flat.

Should be a pretty nice upgrade. Feel like I did when I for my first Panasonic plasma about 10 years ago. Getting all the reference content lined up to do some testing.

Very nice price point. I'll be curious to hear how you like it!

So far tht initial reports are good. No real reviews out yet so fingers crossed. I'll report back once it's setup.

I think I might look for some Christmas deals on the Samsung QLEDs.
