2017 OLED vs. 2020 OLED


Active Member
I currently own a LG OLED55B7 and have done since 2017, it’s been perfect and I have no issues with it.

However I notice that Currys are selling the 55CX6LA from 2020 for £999.

Obviously the CX is higher up the range than my B7 and is 3 years newer.

Should I upgrade? Would I notice any major improvements in picture quality and overall performance?

I just updated my C7 to C1 but also have a B9.

Main benefit of latest ones for my use is 120Hz/4K/GSync gaming support.

My C7 had developed some 'Netflix logo' burn in at the bottom, but my Mum's on that TV now as her eyes are going so won't notice it anyway.

The latest screen is faster and brighter but for just TV watching I'd not upgrade if your screen is still perfect unless you just want to treat yourself.
