Looking for a new 60 inch tv. Either oled or lcd. Always owned Sony’s , but happy to change. We have tv on angled bracket , I do fiddle with colour , contract. Do like my colour more natural and like it to process quickly for sports . We need to be able to see from Angle and straight On. The room is very bright during the day. Please and ideas. Was thinking of the lgc9 but seeing on here , might not be idea.

What tv do you have now?

Worth noting that there are no good 60” sets now. It’s either 55 or 65” now, really.

What’s your budget? Do you need to buy now?

Samsung Q80R or above if you want good HDR performance, together with good blacks. 55/65"

If you want better motion for sport you'll have to sacrifice excellent anti reflection performance for the sake of the best motion by looking at TVs like Sony's XF9005 or XG9505.

And if you don't need good HDR or want to spend less or go bigger you can look at mid range models like LG's SUHD TVs and Sony's XF85/XG85 series that all use IPS panels at 55/65".

Thank you for your help. Yes I really want a good hdr and good motion , do you are saying if I want those I have to sacrifice good reflection. I think I would sacrifice reflection for the best picture quality and very good contrast. Always something that has bugged me on many TVs. Thank you. I shall look at your recommendations.

No. The Samsung TVs that have good reflection filters/coatings also have great PQ and good motion. Sony are believed by most to have the best motion but it’s subjective, to say the least.

Re LG - their oleds are great, LCDs less so unless you need wide viewing angles and can’t stretch to an oled set.

Ok thank you . So in your opinion should we go for an oled tv, to get the best picture and viewing angle ? I’m really new to all this , and I am finding it difficult to understand. Thanks for you patience.

Yes - as long as you can satisfy yourself that burn in is a minimal risk. See first post here - OLED Burn In Risk
Not too sure. Only thing I can think of that could be trouble is a do pause films , Netflix etc when watching. I’d that a problem. Is the Samsung tv you recommenced. Is that an oled or an lcd.
so you would advise oled for the quality ?

I don’t think that’s an issue unless you’re likely to leave it paused for hours on end.

Yes, oled is the way to go. Using internal apps (Netflix etc) the tv will default to a screensaver. Blu Ray players etc should have the option to play a screensaver after a set time.

LG B8 or B9. Former is thin on the ground now so you may have to do some serious searching to find one. If you can wait until closer to Black Friday then the latter will come down in price around then.

Thanks. I see you suggest the LG b serries. Why do you choose that over the c series. Can you tell me the difference ? I really have no idea ..
So am I right in what you have advised. LG or Samsung. Will give a great picture and good angle for viewing. But not the best for bright room. But picture quality is paramount. Oled it should be .. 55 or 65 not 60 ..

Can I ask what tv you have ? I’m really confused. I just want the best there is at the moment !! If I’m going to upgrade. No point getting something that’s not much better than what we have. Our Sony has a nice picture. Just not big enough. Thank you for your help.

Because its cheaper. The C series is only superior because of an updated picture processor which won't be used in most peoples cases.

Are you comparing the LG OLEDs to the Samsung QLED? Well viewing angle is still better on the OLED but not bad on the Samsung. If you want the biggest gain in picture quality for all sources look no further than OLED. If you are a big HDR user, its fine going with the Q80R.
Does it compare to Sony’s motion? If so I would be happy with that.
It compares, in most direct comparisons you are talking 4/5 compared to 5/5.

I have a 49” Q7 from 2017. Unfortunately can’t go oled yet as my son watch a lot of tv. Definitely going to get one once he starts school in next year or two.

Ok thank you. I shall look for the b or c then. If prices are not too dissimilar I will go with the c. When you say hdr users. Do you mean dvds etc. We don’t use them only streaming. I really appreciate all you help and knowledge. I just want the best picture ..!! Thank you so much.

Netflix, Prime, Apple TV - all have hdr content. Only 4K discs have hdr - DVDs/Blu rays do not. I’d highly recommend getting a 4K player - discs can be expensive on release but drop fairly quickly. Only get your favourite movies to save money

Hi. Can I ask why your son can’t use an oled ? I really don’t understand all this

He watches the same stuff over and over again, with logos being especially prevalent. If he’s unwell, as he is often, then CBeebies is on for hours on end. I just can’t risk it for now.

The risk of Burn In increases if you repeatedly watch programmes with Red or Yellow logos - children's programmes tend to include a lot of logos and if a child tends to watch the same programme over and over there's a risk of an Oled screen getting Burn In - DodgeXander has a list of ' Dos and Don'ts ' regarding watching Oled tvs , well worth a look .

Thank you. I never realised that there was such a thing as burn. I will try and find that list. Thanks again.
