I’m moving my family from Connecticut to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in March. We’re selling our
house and buy another one. With the inflow of cash from the sales of our CT home, I want to get a new tv for my “man cave.” I purchased a 65 inch Samsung 7 series curve tv about two Christmases ago, it’s a nice tv but now I want an OLED, 120hrtz, I want a tv with all the bells and whistles.
What do you all recommend. I don’t wanna go too crazy in price but I want a tv that will allow me to use all the cool feature of the Series X. Any recommendations!?
I have a CX which is awesome. One of my 2.5 year old twins put a toy train through the screen and killed it. Had to go back to LCD while waiting on insurance and the difference was huge. Very happy when I got the OLED back.
I can’t agree with the Nanocell recommendation, nor do any of the reputable TV reviewing sources (ratings, hdtvtest, etc.). @Superman2x7, if you’re looking at an LED, the Samsung Q80 or above are your best bets, assuming you’re trying to get the best of the technology. If you’re going OLED, than the CX is the best option; just remember there’s a large price delta between the sets.
I’m not going to go into the nitty gritty of which is better because there are genuine use cases and environments where one excels over the other. Personally, in my situation, I prefer the newer QLEDs and in the incoming MiniLEDs for a number of reasons, after owning an OLED for four months. I have found the lack of brightness with the OLED to be greatly disappointing when compared to even the now-five-year-old KS8000, which results in relatively lackluster HDR highlights and atrocious performance in my living room during the day time (even with curtains). As someone who uses my sets a lot, I worry about the longevity as OLED will naturally breakdown over time and with more heat/use, that will occur quicker; full disclosure, I purchased the set at a price too good to pass by, but the fact that I’m already looking for my next set isn’t a good sign.
Also, keep in mind that the new sets are going to start launching next month, so some of the recommendations will be likely to change. Finally, if you’re looking for cheaper options, I can recommend several as well.
@Knottian I mean depends on what he wants. Nanocell has all the 2.1 offerings which is why I mainly recommended it and has a great image. I have an CX OLED so I will always recommend that if he can splash the money on it.
But I recommend going on youtube and searching for TV centric reviewers. They do a great job ranging from hdtvtests, stop the fomo, joelster, etc.
New TV’s and tech are coming in a few months so if you are willing to hold a bit Id recommend that. New tech like Mini LED’s and all that is coming which promises OLED level performances at a lower cost.
If you mean the LG for OLED, go for it. If not, you may want to look at some of the reviews… Nanocell doesn’t make any of the top cuts for a bevy of reasons (I’d be curious if the source connected to the Q80 was problematic, given all the research I’ve done). Take a look at these:
LG’s LED panels might be better with 2021 releases, but they have never been comparable to Samsung’s mid-high, to high-end equivalents.
I’m still using my 65” LG C7 OLED. No signs of burn-in, picture is great for me, input lag is minimal. If the newer LG OLEDs are even better, I don’t think you can go wrong…especially with the CX. What I’ve heard coming out of CES is that none of the 2021 TVs are much of an update, so maybe save yourself a few shekels with a 2020 model?
