You mean the Neo-QLED is Mini-LED I take it? We'll have to wait and see if they really exploit this properly with a couple of thousand dimming zones, I have my doubts, but could be a decent improvement over current models.I think Micro-Led model is going to be mega expensive and unrealistic prices for most consumers.
However, Neo-QLED is more consumer oriented, as it's Micro-Led; fare more cheaper to make than Micro-Led models.
I know everyone goes on and on about MicroLED but personally I think it's always going to be inferior to OLED. LCD is always going to be a limiting factor, it cannot match the responsiveness of OLED. The only issue with OLED is burn in which I don't think is actually anywhere near as bad as people believe (judging by Rtings testing) and gets better every year.
Why does everyone say this is free from burn in. LED's get dimmer over time. Having a bright logo on a dark background will result in burn in, perhaps not as quickly as OLED but it will happen. I've also seen old LCD displays feature IR issues.
LG need to keep driving down the cost of OLED and reducing burn in issues.
What is Samsung thinking? No Dolby Vision, no Airplay 2 - not in a million years will I install your proprietary software on my computer Samsung. I actually see 8K as a negative, it's resolution for the sake of resolution, it just eats up streaming bandwidth and murders graphics cards for no appreciable improvement in image quality.
The 77" LG GX is as close to perfect a TV I've ever seen, if they update it this year with full 48Gb/s HDMI 2.1 ports then it'll be perfect for me. I also really like webOS, although I think it would be an interesting idea if TV manufacturers would partner with the likes of Apple. Let Apple handle the UI and interface (I like my Apple TV a lot) and letting them focus on the hardware.
MicroLed will eventually become a game changer (though not for 10 years time or longer until the technology matures & the consumer prices come way down) the brightness of LCD and the blacks of OLED but without any worry of burn in. I don't like Samsung's current MicroLed wall tv's which are lots of different modular panels joined together.Will be interesting to see if the micro LED is a genuine game changer, or just more lipstick on the LCD pig.
