The TV for the 1%

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Buy LG W8 OLED:
On Amazon: http://geni.us/NxNBrt
One Newegg: http://geni.us/Nk6JmU

 

LG’s nicest, most expensive TV for home theater enthusiasts is the 77 inch OLED 2018 W8 wallpaper TV with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa integration. It’s $15k, HDR, and has a Dolby Atmos Sound Bar. We’re not worthy...

If a commoner doesn't have to sell their home to buy the TV, it's not for "the 1%" :P

I'd say the real baller option is Samsung's 8K set, but then the only things you'll be watching in 8K for the next few years are demo videos.  4K OLED sets are where it's at right now.

 

I have an LG C7, and I can attest to how stupendous the picture is even on last year's models.

@James Did Linus mean Would or Wouldn't notice? Because I doubt the average BB shopper would be even smart enough to understand half of the stuff about the TV itself 😂

The reason why I'm asking is because it sounded like would to me :P

Ok so AGAIN Linus !!.. PLEASE!! ..do atleast SOME research before regurgitating old information about 'burn-in'.

 

'Gamers' for the most part do NOT need to worry about burn-in. You would have to be playing some rather specific titles, and for very long extened session, multiple times for at least a YEAR befor 'burn-in' starts to become noticable on flat single color backgrounds, and even longer befor its noticable on normal moving images.

 

YES 'burn-in' still exists. Yes those who watch nothing but news channels and sports channels should avoid OLED, but please stop spreading the incorrect information that OLED should not be used for gaming. They are perfectly fine for the average person to game on. maybe not a professional or hardcore Fifa 18 players for example, due to the high contrast static UI, but for 'normal' gamers with a varied catalogue of games and 'normal' length gaming sessions,, an OLED panel is perfectly acceptable.

 

rtings.com has and is still doing a burn-in test in real world scenarios, it took the equivalent of a years worth gaming the same game over and over again (fifa) for slight 'burn-in' to occure. Thats a worst case game, and in a situation where all that screen ever saw was that game and nothing else.

 

Temporary image retention is a thing, somthing the average user, maybe urself, can miss identify as permanant burn in, but that goes away after 10-30 minutes depending on how strong it is.

 

OLED isnt perfect but its a dman sight better than anything LCD has going. It should be a serious consideration for any1 willign to spend 1k+ on a screen. And yes even for gaming and PC use.

 

Until self emisive micro LED becomes available, OLED is the best there is, your not helping the industry and consumers by harming OLEDs reputation with these kind of comments about 'burn-in'.

 

I write this using an old Panasonic Plasma 42" TV that has only ever been used for my PC. Im a PC enthusiast and spend alot of time playing games. It has no burn in. And yet people still say 'Plasma' was no good for gaming and PC use due to brun-in, just as they say for OLED. its utter bollocks. Can it burn in? sure, but only if u abuse it, any1 willing to spend over 1k on a screen shouldnt be abusing it unless they are ok with 'burning' money.

 

Ok rant over. :)

Veiwing angles on OLED are very good, better than the best LCD's.

 

IIRC ~ 75 degrees without significant issues, unlike LCD (depending on panel type, most are VA so viewing angles are bad) which u can expect the best ones being around maybe 20 degrees for black levels.

 

Colors i beleve start to show 'measurable' shift much earlier (~30 degrees) like with any panel tech, but not visably show significantly untill around 60 degrees, vs VA LCD ~30

 

And i think brightness is like 60 degrees. vs VA LCD ~30.

I completely agree with your rant. I have a 6-7 year old 55" Panasonic ST30 plasma that still works good as new with zero burn-in. Over the last couple of years I've been using it primarily with a Roku and mini-PC (LibreELEC/Kodi), and there's no burn-in. There is some image retention that occurs, but that always disappears when I start watching something else. I've never gamed on it though, because my viewing distance is far.

 

Based on my experience with the plasma, I made the jump to a 65" LG C8 OLED TV a few weeks back. I'm in complete awe every time I watch anything on it, from Dolby Vision/HDR10 content to hockey games and my regular TV  shows. It's definitely a huge step up, and the brightness is much better than with my plasma. The colors pop, and I can honestly see zero grain or noise when watching Dolby Vision/HDR10 content. I still can't believe how amazing it is. I'm 100 hours in now, and still have yet to experience any burn-in or image retention, and hope I never do.
