Thanks for a great review, as a tv that would only be used for general viewing (no films or gaming) in a lighted living room is this a better proposition than any of the Samsungs.
I have a 65 AG9 already ,but getting a bit sick of avoiding Sky sports new etc for fear of burn in etc ,plus my 13 year old has a habit of pausing it and just leaving it paused ,I’m considering getting the 75” XhHe didn't mention price in his question.
At the end of the day, it depends on what you value in terms of picture quality. You have two different technologies each with their pros and cons.
Still difficult to choose between oled or this sony or a samsung qled.... As I don't watch movie with black bars and always have lights on.. And mostly sdr 1080i.. Only youtube 4k (hdr)..
I see what you mean. I hesitate agains oled because of it's thin weak screens in handling/moving.. and the pixel-retention.. etc.The issue you'll have with any is top end large screens will show superb picture quality in UHD/HDR but will show up poorer quality source content in all its "glory". From what you use it for I don't think you'd see the benefits of oled so save your money and go for an LCD. Qled is just lcd technology but Samsung have given it a jazzy name to try and make people think it's somehow better.
I had the same dilemma, having kids and never watching in pitch black, I got this TV. I've seen OLEDS and no way are they worth the £1000+ difference and the worry you'll have . Oleds looks better aesthetically but the motion and HDR quality on this TV blows it out of the park.Still difficult to choose between oled or this sony or a samsung qled.... As I don't watch movie with black bars and always have lights on.. And mostly sdr 1080i.. Only youtube 4k (hdr)..
Thanks for review Phil. Sony stated they plan to update some TVs to be “ready for PS5” - I take it from your comments about HDMI 2.0 the update is not for this model?
Seems a bit limiting and unfortunately now off my list.Only the XH9005. According to some spurious rumours lacking any evidence this set may have the hardware, but equally others have posted that it definitely doesn't, so best to assume it will never have hdmi 2.1.
