    Hey guys sorry if this has already been said but I'm in a bit of a quandary. I currently have the Hisense m7000 65" led tv and it's decent I'm fairly impressed. I've had my heart set on an oled for a long time but like most people the prices have just been to high. With the prices now better I could afford the new 55 inch b7v model but I don't know if a loss in screen size would be to much and a bad move? My 65 inch does look big in my room to be honest, when I first set it up it looked 'to big', however I am used to it now.
    I don't get the wow factor I'd like when using HDR content like I would on the oled, but would the loss in screen size be stupid when I have a 65 inch already?

    Any options on what you guys would do would be great.

    Many thanks

    Liam

    I had the same issue, went for 65 inches (902B).

    However the LCD you're considering is really not that amazing of one so the OLED might offer some big improvements over it which will sway you further towards it.


    I think screen size is a REALLY underrated factor for a truly cinematic exp.

    Hey thanks for reply. Also in my thinking was maybe swapping the Hisense for another 65 led up to 2 grand. I'm sure you could get a good tv for that.... but then again swapping his led for another led ? I'd swap for an oled definitely but didn't know if there was much point in swapping it for another led? Aaaggghhh haha

    Go oled any day of the week...
    Ifa just happening and lots of brands are announcing oled on top of the usual (Philips, toshiba,...)

    Stay 65 and don't go below
    1. Another good led if money tight: sony xe93 dropping
    2. Go oled but wait for Black Friday or q1 2018 for prices to dive much further

    That sony looks good but it's still a little bit to high. What would you recommend is best for a 2 grand budget? The oled 55 is 2 grand but are there any 65 inches that would significantly improve the Hisense ?

    The 65xe93 is around £2300 and will touch £2k within a month with promotion (see price spy)
    The oled 65b7 is around £2700 with promotion and should touch £2500 by Black Friday
    The 65xe90 is incredible value
    The pana 65dx9 can Be had for less than £2k

    A straight answer to the question you ask - 55" OLED any day of the week, in my humble opinion. :)

    I'm on my second 55" OLED, having given my LG 930V to my mother-in-law, lucky her, and replaced it with a 4K E6V and, if/when I change it, there's no doubt whatsoever that it'll be another OLED.

    Best of luck to Pardoe in making the right decision.

    Martin.

    Thanks Martin.

    I've found an ex display model in my local currys. It's the 65 inch oled B6V so last years model. What are your thoughts on an ex display ?

    We downsized from our plasma to a 55” OLED. Yes for about 5 minutes it was a bit smaller, but you know what it is plenty big enough, and our lounge isn’t small. It covers and corner sofa with on the long run is 4m wide. We are about 10-12foot away from it. It is actually really nice to have our lounge back and not a room that looks silly and dominated by a big screen.

    If I had a dedicated cinema/play room in addition to our lounge then yes bigger is better...

    Then again if you never sit in the lounge and talk, play board games, chat or laugh but simply watch tv; yes then it may make sense to go for as big as possible.

    I truthfully don't know as it could have been running for many hours each day, most likely on the same station which, if that station used fixed logos (station identifiers for example), may have caused some image retention, so I would suggest that at least you ask to see it working and make sure everything is okay. Also, be sure they are offering a full warranty with it.

    Best of luck,

    Martin.
