Did they discontinue the TCL 55" P6 series TVs?

OLED TVs definitely have the best picture quality, but if you’re worried about burn in or don’t have that extra $700 to $1000 to spare(depending on size and model) there’s nothing wrong with an LCD. The jump in quality is noticeable, but it’s not like going from standard def to 1080p for the first time or anything IMO. Nor is going from 1080 to 4K. Some people just don’t have that extra $700 to spare.

I like my X900F just fine and with it already $1800, I could see it hitting $1500 or $1600 in another sale soon.

All depends on what you want out of a TV and your financial situation.

Game likes these tend to be on sale somewhere - maybe GameStop and/or Amazon, if not Best Buy, but they are fairly niche titles to where they wouldn't typically be featured in ads.

Yeah, all tech and review sites acknowledge this now. Some of them have permanent burn in. Some temporary. If you’re diligent I’m sure it won’t be an issue, but if you are someone who falls asleep when gaming or whatever or pauses and leaves the room, maybe invest in LCD.

Unfortunately, yes. I'm still using a 1080p Panasonic plasma that has retention / burn-in issues, so hearing that OLED's have it too has caused me to steer clear of them.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I am considering this tv:

https://www.bestbuy....5&ref=194&loc=1

I’m not sold on the additional $1000 for the 65 LG OLED...
Should I reconsider?

Want the tv for mostly gaming.

Are you looking specifically for 75 inches?

 

The Sony X900F and Vizio P Series Quantum are better TVs, but for that price you'll have to go 65 inches.

 

That TV is a good TV, it's just a tier or half tier below those.

 

If you really want a TV right now, that's not a bad one to get. But if you're cool waiting, you can get a tier better TV at 75 inches if that's what you absolutely want probably in a few months for right around that price. Once the new year hits, the 2018 best models will start to be discounted as the 2019 models come in.

Shadow Assassin has offered the best, most pragmatic advice. I have an OLED C6. It ... was expensive. It's also amazing. But if you have fear of image retention and/or burn-in, don't get one.

Likewise, don't break the bank. Buy the best you can comfortably afford. $1500 will get you a damn good LED.

I have both a B7A OLED and Sony X900E and I'll tell you the OLED is just crazy nice. If you can swing one comfortably then you'll love it, but current LEDs are still good too if it's more affordable.

Yeah, if what he wants is 75 inches, I'd wait til February or March so and see if the 75 inch X900F, or the Samsung Q8 and Q9FN's discount in price.

 

If you absolutely want one now and need 75 inches, the Samsung NU8000 isn't a bad choice at all. But I think you'd be settling for a tier below what you could get for a comparable price in a few months.

After seeing OLED has burn in issues, I think my next television will be the Sony X900F. The reviews are glowing and it seems to have everything I am looking for. I have had Samsung tvs for years and will go back to Sony after reading about this model.

I bought the X900F earlier this year. I narrowed my choice down to that, the Samsung Q8 and Q9F and the Vizio P Series Quantum. I decided on the Sony. Not because it had the best reviews, but it was the best combination of price and features. It's a very good TV. The only downside to it really is HDMI ports 2 and 3 are the only ones that support full 4k HDR. So if you have several devices that will support that, you may need an HDMI splitter or something. I personally don't, so it wasn't a drawback for me.

 

It also really good apps and features with android OS built in.

 

It's good right out of the box with no calibration. It's a really nice TV for the price.

Thanks ShadowAssassin for the input. I actually have two HDMI splitters as I have up to 10 game systems running on my current tv. Never really seen what true HDR looks like on a 4k set. Something to look forward to when I can find the 65" on a good sale.

You'll need to get a splitter that supports full 4k HDR at 60hz, I don't think regular splitters will work. I mean, they will work work, but you won't get the full 4k HDR. For the full HDR experience, you'll need a little better HDMI cables than your standard. Not that not having one will totally screw up your picture or anything, but you won't get the best out of it. You can get them on amazon cheap for like $10. Not the splitter, the cables.

You won't need one though for gaming, as if you have the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, they come with the HDMI cables you need. But you'll need one of those if you are using other 4k HDR devices that don't have the right cables.

I just looked at my splitters I bought earlier this year and they are 4k @30hz. (or at least that is what the seller says on Amazon) Guess I will have to buy some better splitters and maybe some more HDMI cables. Its going to be a nightmare hooking all the devices up again as there is just a huge mess behind the entertainment center with all the HDMI and power cables everywhere.

I honestly do have this problem. I got a Samsung KS8000 for one room and loved it. When my kid broke another TV in a different room I used it as an excuse to upgrade to the LG OLED and now when I watch the KS8000 (or other TV's too) it feels like the TV is broken because it doesn't look as good.





I got the ks8000 too. I like the pic. But it's going to be very very hard not to upgrade to an oled tv.

Just double-checked my collection and it was indeed the gold edition so either Target had a time machine or maybe the release date info is wrong? I distinctly remember having to hunt a copy down because they had placed all the games that were $15 in men's clothing of all things.

Target has a history of merging identification normal/gold editions of games. Usually this is an Ubisoft game (e.g., the gold version scanning as a regular version and the regular version price/sale).

 

I don't remember the sales from last year, but maybe you were the beneficiary of a happy accident.

I'm all in on OLED. My Vita is OLED. My laptop is OLED. My TV is OLED. My next computer monitor will be OLED. Whenever that is. I don't even know if there are any good OLED monitors available now. Especially since I want ultra wide.

I hear ya. I have 1000 series vita and a 2000 series vita. I play the 1000 almost exclusively. Also have 2 TVs, 1 Panasonic plasma and 1 LG OLED and love both. You get used to the deep blacks and the realistic picture you see.

Also, as someone who watches tv programs with static logos on the screen and pauses games for very long periods of time, if anyone would get burn in it's me. My OLED never has. My plasma did a few years ago but it was only temporary and was completely gone in a week. So I pay no mind to the "drawback" of OLED.

If any are in the market though, and are going to be paranoid about that, prob be best served going samsung QLED. That is a great tv for sure and no need to worry about usage. The sony series mentioned above really nice too

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. I’m not in a rush and can comfortably wait.

As for 75 I’m not married to it, I already have a 70 something and didn’t want to go down in size but 65 would also be fine.
