This or OLED for a few hundred more?

Original Poster

I'm having the same dilemma - but OLED is around the 1600-1700 mark - but only for 55", not 65". For OLED 65" you're talking way over £2k currently.

55" is suitable for me. The inky black on OLED is swaying me

C7 55" can be had for just a little more (if you catch the right sale/voucher as low as £1499) and picture quality is night and day! Imo OLED is the way forward for anything over £1200

Seems like a decent price. I'd be interested to know what makes it a 'gaming TV'. I'm saving up for an OLED (probably the LG 55B7V), fingers crossed for a black Friday bargain!

Same. I’m struggling to work out what makes this a ‘gaming’ TV...?

Hi Guys- its a Gaming TV as it has the Nanocell technology - meaning it gets in testing around 19ms Latency. Comparing to other TV's that will usually be around 40-50ms latency (lower the better). Some OLED Tv's have a gaming mode that can get the latency down to around 21ms.
I have a 55" TV already, and I do really want OLED, but to spend upwards of £1500 to have the same size - argh!

For those above wondering what makes it recommended as a gaming TV. Its not the exact TV but the principle is on point with the Nanocell tech etc...

I got the 55" version of this on Friday. Some calibration settings for this model here to try out if anybody gets this or the 55" version.

For the price its actually a very decent tv!

So, "Gaming" relative to other 50-60" TVs; PC monitors, even budget ones are much lower, from 12mS down to 1mS for T&N gaming panels; AND there are a few 40" range TVs that can manage 12-15mS.

That's probably why he referred to it as a '65" Gaming TV'.

Remember reading a thread somewhere where someone received an email reply from LG stating that none of their TVs sold in the UK are 10 bit panels . Can anyone confirm this. ?

I rang them and the guy spoke to his supervisor who said only LG oleds are 10bit in UK. LG are very misleading with their online specs...

Yeah, but if you're happy with 55" then this model is half the price at £800

The big competition for this is the Philips PUS7601 and Sony XE90 at a couple of hundred more. I'd lean towards them personally.

As far as I'm aware nanocell is a colour filter layer, why would it have any impact on input lag? Given that it's similar on LG's non-nanocell TVs it's far more likely to be just new image processing software or a faster CPU.

Maybe just the oleds are 10 bit panels then . And non oled are 8+2

What are considered the best tvs for gaming been out of the loop for awhile

I think you are talking about different things as input latency and panel refresh times are separate parts of the overall equation.

There is also C7 model which comes with more stable stand, black edge around the screen instead of silver and slightly different connectors layout. Same price as B7, same OLED panel. Can be had from Currys or RicherSounds (even though not advertised on their website.) Otherwise both tellys are the same.

They are usually linked though; a low latency panel will have a fast refresh rate (usually); although there are a few horrors out there that quote very fast refresh rates, but have hideously slow latency running to 40-50mS.

For console use, a TV is fine, as very few consoles operate beyond 60Hz; I just didnt want people thinking they can run PC gaming on a TV and get the kind of smooth, blur free picture you get on a proper gaming PC screen.

That's wrong. Speak with their technical support management. The 800V and 850V are 10 bit LCD Panels. Hence why they support Dolby Vision unlike the other LG LCDs.

Essentially look at these with their nano cell technologies as LG version of Samsungs QLED/Quantom Dot.

Yup. OLED for a 65 is astronomical. Stuck cos I really want an OLED 65 but I might have to settle for a LED

Been on holiday abroad and I used that Samsung model... This Tizen system is just ****, couldnt connect my samsung S8 with tv, without unplug power source, couldnt watch online movies, on websites where normaly im watching all ready nearly two years on my Lg WebOS. Propably some codecs issues... After two weeks of using Samsung Tizen TV, im really happy with my LG and i will never exchange him for any other system/tv.

What has that got to do with screen lag? Lots of good monitors with low latency operate at 60Hz

The latency issue is of the TV's electronics, not the panel.

Not below 55 inch no . But 55 inch and above is 10 bit.

Wrong, 8 bits + FRC in 55' and 65' as well

Does anyone wonder if BF will have any good OLED offers?

100mhz and gaming TV? Seriously?
