You can get OLED for this price, so this isn't worth it.

So it's older tech?

I wonder why Samsung have decided to do there own panel QLED instead of moving to OLED like other brands?

Long-standing rivalry with LG.

Guess Sony, Panasonic, Philips etc... wanted in on the action but there staring at very high prices.

It's just different and inferior. Once you have an OLED and get real blacks, it's impossible to go back.

Do the QLED's suffer from burn-in like the LG OLED's do?

No they don't suffer from screenburn and have a 10yr screen guarantee. Here's a link to reassure.

I think its a longer term strategy that they want to go down a different path.

Real QLED, not the current Samsung marketing "QLED", involves self emitting light pixels just like OLED's but also has the Quantum Dot technology.

So youd get the brightness and colour of Quantum Dots, the perfect blacks of OLED (no light), and it would not use organic compounds like OLED's, so theres no screen burn.

Its kind of the best of both worlds but the tech is not there yet.

Link to comprehensive review priced at £1799 in October 2017.

Would anyone recommend this over the LG oled b7 / c7 ? Considering they are the same price . What would be good for gaming? Anyone know the input lag of this tv compared to oled ?

Also, are all the hdmi ports on this samsung @ 2.0 4k 60hz? Cheers

I agree (owning an OLED myself), & so does the AVF review posted by rosco123:

"Of course if the idea of OLED rather than QLED appeals to you and you prefer the superior blacks of this self-emmisive technology then there really is only one alternative. You can currently pick up the LG 55B7 for the same £1,799 asking price and when you consider that the B7 includes HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision support, along with Dolby Atmos and WebOS, it's a very tempting proposition. Yes the B7 isn't as bright as the Q7 but in all other respects it's the equal or the superior of the Samsung and is capable of delivering some truly impressive images, making it the TV to beat at the moment."

So a look out for the b7 that is going for £1350. How much of an upgrade will I get from an lg55ub850v? It's 4k non hdr

No. If this was £400-£500 cheaper than the LG OLED's then it would be in the conversation based on price.

At the same price, its hard to justify.

I upgraded from the 49 inch version of your TV. The difference is incredible. You get proper blacks and the HDR adds so much. The Samsung might get brighter overall, but with that brightness will come greys instead of blacks. Do you want to watch a film with black bars or grey glowing bars?

I've seen the qleds and they are very vibrant , but some comparisons on YouTube show that the oled 'whites' have a slight blue-ish tint to it. I don't know if that video was a true representation of oled but it's got me thinking....

Thanks for the post, I just got John Lewis to Price Match this. I decided to purchase this rather than the LG Oled B7, after doing some research and concerns over screen burn.

Hi DQ111111
I can understand the reasoning behind picking either. I still have a nice plasma. I was waiting for Oled prices to come down and now they have. Problem is that the recognised issues with Oled and especially in a normal family livingroom with live pause, banners, bright daylight and HDR and screen burn. For me, with a whole family accessing tv content and using as they wish Oled is unfortunately out the window. So perhaps Qled is a good option. Just need a bit cheaper. Down to near KS7000 or KS8000 level.

Same , JL price matched the offer for me too and the b7. Now it's all about which one to go for.

Hey buddy , thanks for your input and thoughts. I'm pretty much in the same dilemma but the only difference is that I'll be using it in my attic (man cave). Atm no kids so only myself and partner will have access to it. Upstairs is not too bright so I'm not worried about the brightness levels as such. Rather , what concerns me is, the issue with screen burn and gaming. Currently I use a monitor to game on and was looking for a decent 4k monitor, but the prices are ridiculous for one with hdr.

I have seen a samsung qdot monitor 4k but the price is a bit steep around £600. LG also have a hdr ready monitor but the panel is ips, and it costs around £1,100, hence me being put of because of light bleed and ridiculous price. The other choice is to go for a tv that has the power to produce excellent visuals and at the same time allow me to game at uhd hdr level.

I need to upgrade as I currently use a 10 year old 37" Panasonic lcd 1080p tv. When watching movies I'd like something larger than 37" and 55 is the max I can go.

It's a tough choice - qled or oled???

I decided to go for the Qled, due to the fact that It was going to be used in the family room with teenage kids using it any which way they pleased... Playstation, Youtube etc... . If it was just myself and the wife using the TV, I would have definitely gone for the LG Oled B7. I am upgrading from an old 46" Panasonic Plasma.

Cool thanks for sharing. I think you may have swayed me toward the oled

Having said that, it's currently oos at JL but price match is valid for 28 days . I also have a price match for the E7N model LG oled , however , my wife doesn't like the look of the soundbar and glass bezel !!! Strange , but that's women ey...

Hi DQ111111,
I'm fortunate that I have a man cave too. For the last 6 years I've enjoyed a projector with 120" screen and full audio boom boom shake the room. I've just upgraded projector to a nice Epson and imagine 3D from 10ft away. Lol
l believe there will be greatest progress with HDR and during a demonstration it was the highlights, as in sheer brightness at times and the wide colour gamut which were most impressive. A little ambient lighting goes a long way to improve perceived blacks anyway. Your gaming will probably even slightly cause screen issues and probably grief for you. When oled were first introduced l remember them saying that screenburn wasn't a problem. Well, best of luck and it's a nice problem to have.

Oh man ! If you put it like that , then I must consider my monitor options.... the last thing I need is screen burn .... I'm already suffering from internal burning due to my wife spending money on pointless things like .... makeup and handbags she's already got!

OLED burn in is only an issue for gamers if you're having hench gaming sessions that last over several hours at a time with the same static image on screen (i.e a HUD on FPS's), or if you're the type of noddy who leaves their screen on whilst going to do something else.

At same price point, anyone picking this over an OLED is a bit of a simpleton.
