OLED is unquestionably the better technology. QLED is just a fancier LED panel. The only way you'd ever want a QLED over an OLED (other than cost) is when you have a very bright room.

Would this be much of an upgrade from a 2018 65" Samsung Q8?


No, stick with Samsung.

Go for QLED in a very bright room. However for pretty much everything else I’d take the OLED every day (even though it costs more)
Anyone who says QLED is better than OLED is an absolute radger. Hot deal.

Thanks for the help, I want to go OLED but the position of the TV in the living room is that it is partially in front of a picture window. Would this change your advice any?

I will most likely try QLED next. OLED pic quality is awesome, but screenburn after 30 mins Sky News a day (2016 model) has put me off I'm afraid. Pity, as the quality was superb.

I would say if you have bright light shining onto the screen then go QLED atm as the set can go much bright to counter act the light on the screen, however if you can cut this out then OLED all day long, particularly at night in a dark room as the depth of blacks it can produce is amazing. Personally I just think the contrast between dark and light is greater. Have a look at the sets in store though somewhere like JL or Richer sounds who may have them set up in better conditions compared to the likes of Currys who couldn’t give a toss and will just fob you off with crap information generally - and then try and sell you a £100 HDMI cable on top Both great sets and have different user bases/conditions generally, but you’ll find a lot of people going from LED/QLED to OLED but not the other way - says it all to me! Good luck

Yes from what I believe atm LG make them all, however I believe down the line Samsung are planning on making them too (unsure when though). Sony were actually the first to bring them to market many years ago in a much smaller form factor, but I think even they use LG panels now.
Screen across brands should be identical. But the processing of the image can be totally different and the way that particular brand ‘applies’ their own software/firmware. Some swear by Sony images but longevity of support can be bad, Philips are very good too but their OLED sets are due an upgrade very soon to a new model, and most people tend to buy LG who have great menus and processing. Always get a long warranty though via JL or Richer sounds for free

I did the same as you when looking, did all the research etc etc.... bought this model quite some time ago and never looked back! I hammer mine with xbox, TV, movies, it's never had screen burn, image quality is awesome, and now I'm looking to buy another 2 to replace TVs in other rooms. Waiting for the C models to come down to a similar price the will buy a couple more. You wont go wrong with this TV!

So I have the chance to pick up a 55 inch version of this tomorrow for £1,029, is it worth it at that price?
For all those that love their QLED’s, I’m sure you’ll be glad to know that Samsung is shutting down it’s LCD production factories and switching to OLED. They’ll still make LCD TV’s but they’ll source the panels from other countries: whathifi.com/us/…ion

The difference in the B8 vs C8 are a slightly better CPU that you will never see the difference, the PLA and SLC are stand types the PLA being better..

I own a PLA B8 and it runs like butter and is amazing quality far better than any QLED might make you believe...

I have one of these except for the curved 3D model. They are excellent for gaming and I have no screen burn what so ever and I game for hours sessions at a time. You won’t go wrong with one of these they are excellent. However if you are after gaming the newer model has hdmi 2.1 and that is a game changer for Xbox one x and the next Gen consoles next year as it has freesync which is variable refresh technology to make games smoother and no screen tear and also it is capable of 120 frames per second at 4K so if your a gamer I strongly recommend the lastest oled out also I believe LG are the only tv out there with hdmi 2.1 at the moment

I would agree with this with regards to the next gen gaming and refresh rates. However, if you’re sticking with PS4 or XBONE for a few years then the B8 or C8 will be perfect and I’m sure will be fine for next gen. Personally I’d get the C8 with the slightly better processor. I’ve read it’s meant to be better for fast motion such as football and other sports which would suit me, but a friend bought the B8 recently, games quite a bit on it, and says it’s superb

No one is saying you wont get screen burn, or cant get it, perhaps its luck I don't know? I've owned mine a while now, I do hammer it and I do pause for LONG periods of time forgetting it's an OLED but still it's perfect.
I don't work for LG, nor oblivious, but your story isn't uncommon and no one but you knows how you've used your TV.
Out of interest, what have you run on your tv to show your picture you've posted?

Have you called LG? I find that better personally than emailing, same with any manufacturer. Sad to hear you're having issues, keep on at them tho and try and prove fair use and a replacement if possible..... don't know where you stand but worth a few calls! Good luck!

Hi and thanks for the reply much appreciated, I will take a look at the b9 and the c9 as well due to added future proofing of the hdmi 2.1, either way I am coming home with an oled tomorrow. Can't wait.
With the amount of questions on OLED tv deals about wether OLED or QLED is better makes me think that Samsung’s naming convention/marketing trick has definitely worked on the average person
Owner here:

I paid £2k for the 55" version back in a Black Friday deal 2017 (and I got a bargain John Lewis deal £200 cheaper than elsewhere)..

I can highly recommend this TV - it is absolutely cracking. You will not go wrong with one of these bad boys. 4K HDR is something else. I bloody love it, even if it pains me to see the price drop so much..Oh well, I could've waited, but I had it back in 2017, so not complaining too much. IT IS BLOODY BANGING! Feel free to ask any questions.

For those worried about screen burn, I have absoliutely none. Technically it could be possible while watching some youtube vids (static music vids), A screensaver kicks in after 5 mins of inactivity. Only other source could be PS4, but I've never had a problem. There is a screen burn cleaning setting somewhere that I used when I first got it, but there is really no problem with screen burn.

All the video professionals use OLED. The same argument used to come up regarding LCD vs Plasma and now everyone agrees that Plasma is and was the far superior technology. In years to come people will look back fondly on OLED. All this OLED bashing is just pure jealously. Don't let them put doubt in your mind. Only buy QLED if you want a big computer monitor.

I was already sold on OLED, just needed some reassurance. I'd heard and read about OLED probably 20 years + ago. That's why I have a 7 year old plasma now: I think I'd probably have bought plasma again if anyone still made them
Thank you all again for your advice/opinions, much appreciated.
