£899 at Hughes, mate. Although, that’s not really helping your predicament.
Not sure if it will help or not, but If you want the TV? try PRC @ £899.00, 5 Yr warranty & 10 Yr Screen burn warranty too!! QE55Q6FAM

Best to have a quick read of that before you bite.

Thanks, Every little helps, 10 years screen burn is encouraging. Still researching

QLED looks over saturated and uses backlight technology, OLED looks more natural imho and doesn’t require a backlight ( so produces true black) but each to their own I guess.

Not this model it’s not the flagship
Don't buy this TV there is a major fault with it, It turns on automatically at night. There is no response from Samsung they are shite with customer service.
Go for XE900 instead of this

Nope don't believe Samsung BS.

They are super bright and vibrant and very good premium TVs, however you can't beat an OLED.

I walked in to richer sounds 2days ago wanting a QLED as couldn't really justify the OLED as was £500 more.

However RS did the B7 £1350 and I love it.

The picture quality on QLED is 8.5/10, OLED is 10/10
Why is this hot when it’s nowhere near the best price?

Is that just the Q6? Would have thought it shared a lot of basics like switches and operating systems that could prompt a switch on with other Samsungs?

What is the brightness like in comparison?
Nonsense, Oled has a few critical flaws that prevent it from being the definitive choice. Led tv's are also prone to burn in however, since the 2016/17 range, Samsung have implanted Quantum Dot techonology. This entirely solves the burn in issues that plague Oled and allows Samsung to provide a 10 year guarantee on it.

Google 'micro led', Samsung are sacking off quantum dot for micro led.

Hard to say as they were not next to each other. But QLED was very bright but OLED still looked better and I guess this is due to perfect blacks and great HDR.

However my OLED is in a room which is south facing so very bright in the day and I have no issues at all so far.

Quantum Dot is the colour filter that the light shines through. LED and Micro LED is the light that passes through the filter.

So you can have Self Emissive Micro LED Quantum Dot TV's, which is actually what real "QLED" is supposed to be but Samsung hijacked the term and used it for marketing purposes.

An LED backlight passing through a Quantum Dot filter, which is what these Samsung TV's are, are not real QLED.

You're getting your brands and technologies well mixed up there. It's Philips who have used Quantum Dot filters on OLEDs on models like the POS9002. Samsung's quantum dots are being used in their 'QLED' model range, which are all LCD technology.

And the quantum dots are a colour filter on top of the light source, they have nothing to do with the uneven wear of light emitters that causes burn in on OLED TVs.

LCDs like the QLED range haven't been prone to burn in for a decade or more now, at least outside of heavy duty commercial applications. Samsung's guarantee is purely a marketing move to point out one of the upsides of LCDs.

QLED is a model range while OLED is a technology, so that's akin to asking if a porsche is as fast as an electric car.

It does kind of work right now because there's a limited number of both and they're all similar to the others in the same category. Generally the TVs in the QLED range can't match OLEDs viewing angles and dark room performance, but they are strong on bright colour reproduction for HDR. That's for the Q7/Q8 that have been reviewed, this cut down Q6 could be substantially worse for all anyone knows.

The Sony LCDs are generally better competition to OLED, Samsung's higher end TVs aren't very strong this year.

No I think you've confused many different factors here. The fact is, if you are unfortunate enough to have any permanent image retention on an Oled your shafted. LG would have included that omission in their warranties if they were confident but they have not. You don't have to worry about that with the Samsung. You can make points in regards to whatever these technologies are but factually speaking, the burn in warranties by Samsung include the 2016 range which isn't 'Qled'. I don't care about brands and whose technology it is, only the end product concerns me and it's advantages and disadvantages.

What you're saying is like claiming that VW has solved the range issues on electric cars by introducing petrol cars, and the dealership gave you a guarantee that you can go as far as you like without having to stop for more than ten minutes every fuel hours to refuel.

The actual benefits are correct, but you've got cause and effect entirely the wrong way around and the guarantee is for a problem that hasn't existed for that technology since the early days.

If you're worried about screen burn then yes, go for an LCD. But as it's an issue that never happens on LCD in a home context there's no benefit to Samsung's guarantee over other LCDs from other manufacturers - you'd just be falling for clever marketing.

You're being excessively pedantic. Your analogies are points for a debate you're having within your own cerebrum. As I stated before, I have no interest in brands or marketing. Oled technology has some critical flaws which you won't experience with LCD. OLED does have better image quality, but the disadvatges for me are still far too great.

He's not really though. Your first post implied that this was an OLED TV and that Samsung had "solved burn in" via Quantum Dots. Except this isn't an OLED TV - it's just named close to it for marketing purposes, in the hope of tricking people into thinking it is. Samsung's incredibly amazing ten year burn-in warranty doesn't cover any OLED sets in fact - it's limited to a small range of LCDs... which don't suffer from burn-in in the first place.

my-samsung.com/uk/…rs/

It's entirely marketing and a completely worthless guarantee, since the technology inherently doesn't suffer from they're allegedly covering you against. For somebody who claims to have no interest in such marketing gimmicks, you've fallen for one hook, line and sinker. Why you continue to try and argue this rather than just admitting you got mixed up is beyond me.

I said implemented not introduced or created, it's not my issue if you cannot discern between them. Are you folk obstinate by nature or is it just a hobby?

Where did you get that spade from? I didn't know they made them in that size.....

You said something which was factually incorrect about quantum dot "technology" (really just a filter with fancy marketing until they actually make proper QLED panels) and its ability to eradicate screen retention, people corrected you (and rightly so)... Just accept it and move on.

OLED has retention issues but it's biggest weakness is peak brightness and clipping, that is where the advantages truely come in with a high end LCD-LED panel. You'd of been better concentrating on that, than you know, being wrong about QLED.

I've had an OLED for over two years and I've not seen any retention issues whatsoever. My TV must be on at least 12 hours a day so the newer 4k panels must be flawed if there are retention issues. I prefer the much more natural picture of an OLED over the bright but washed out picture you get from LCDs. Until will we get genuine micro dimming on LCDs I personally think OLED is king.

Whether you experience issues or not, OLED from a tech stand point has a very real screen retention issue. If you check out rtings test log youll see, with many LG OLED owners affected with them refusing to support it from a warranty perspective.

That isn't to say you'll be hit by it, just have to acknowledge it's an issue which you remember to avoid. In the future they'll overcome it, it's like the early days of Plasma for OLED at the moment.

OLED contrast performance is fantastic, personally I'm waiting for the tech to mature. My KS7000 suits me better for HDR viewing due to the peak brightness, plus when calibrated (although not to OLED levels) has fantastic black levels. Once OLED can hit the brightness required to remove clipping and they improve the image retention issues, I'll be all aboard.

In a shop floor the brightest will stand out the most. At home is the best way to know which is best for you. Local dimming areas really annoys me. But saying that, the cost of OLED annoys me as well.
