Similar to LG, but not as bright mainly. Many rate the Philips at the top, or certainly compared to the Sony when you factor in the cost of the two.


Not what I've read, personally. The Panasonic is generally rated pretty highly thanks to its good motion handling. All of the non-LG OLEDs have a more aggressive ABL, which results in them not getting as bright as LG's, but beyond that they all have their own strengths and weaknesses.

LG
Positive: Highest brightness, lowest input lag, hardware Dolby Vision support, best smart TV platform, four HDMI 2.0b inputs, Freesat
Negative: By far the weakest motion interpolation, dim game mode on 2017 models

Sony
Positive: Best motion interpolation and upscaling on the market
Negative: Software Dolby Vision support (requiring devices to specifically support the TV in firmware), sluggish Android TV platform, only two HDMI 2.0b inputs, no Freesat

Panasonic
Positive: Second-best motion interpolation and upscaling on the market, very accurate colours even without calibration, HDR10+ support, Freesat
Negative: No Dolby Vision support, only two HDMI 2.0b inputs, most limited smart TV platform

Philips
Positive: "Punchiest" HDR performance (at least pre-calibration), decent motion interpolation, possible HDR10+ support at some point, Ambilight
Negative: Elevated black levels, highest input lag, no Dolby Vision, only two HDMI 2.0b inputs, sluggish Android TV platform (though better than Sony's)

It's a case of pick which negatives bother you the least really. They're all superb TVs with a few quirks that stop them from being perfect.

Hoot, hoot, hoot. Last years models from LG and Panasonic are certainly getting sold off at bargainus prices now. Sony seems the hold out.
Other Euro countries are offering excellent deals for this year too. Thanks Brexit voters.
Great deal. Heat!

I think it's because that Sony model is staying for 2018.

Yeah, the A1 is technically still a current model. Rumour suggests that they'll be announcing more TVs later in the year along with their new 'X1 Ultimate' processor that they were showing off at CES. That's why we're yet to see replacements for the XE93/XE94/ZD9 either.
I think you need to stay a member to keep the warranty CMIIW
I can confirm this price also in Costco Oldham.

Yup. Seems to have confused retailers who were knocking £300 off 65" A1 but have bounced it back up. The AF8 is already lower than LG so I guess that's a sticking point too - although the 65" could be found with £300 off too at £3000.

blind test put it at t the top with the philips though, ahead of the sony and significantly ahead of the LG. Motion handling and realism of the HDR rendition were particularly praised.

This should be posted whenever there's discussion about which OLED is the best. As accurate a rundown as I've seen.
Motion handling, scaling and colour accuracy are the most important factors for me personally. I have a Panasonic Plasma so peak brightness isn't really an issue as such for me - they're not the brightest sets in the world, so even the relative dimness of an OLED will be a step up.
Can confirm they have stock in Reading today at this price, good deal.
Managed to get one from Reading. Happy with the set for the price HEAT!!!!
