Pay the extra and get an OLED.

Don't believe the marketing BS from Samsung about QLED
I'd disagree, after seeing the LG OLED in action, I went qled and it blew it out the water, colours are a lot more vibrant and the blacks are still lovely and deep, plus burn in on OLED is a real issue.
Micro Led next year... But everyone you wait for the next tech, by the time you can afford it the next tech is due.... Hence still on a 12 year old plasma!

But the OP is a good telly at a more realistic price point for a 4k LCD.

Also the LG 55" Oled C7/B7 has Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, which currently looks set to be the leading format over HDR10.

It is also HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) compatible, which is the new standard that many leading media streamers will be using to stream 4k direct to your home network.

I would advise, that you not make an expensive TV purchase unless you factor in the future availability to stream 4k with HLG on the model.

Tech isn't quite there yet with OLED. Burn-in is an issue, an seeing as though smart TV apps have non-moving logos, if you watch a lot of YouTube or similar apps with logos and menu bars, you run the risk of them being burnt into the screen.

I must admit the blacks of the oled are better. But the overall performance of the qled is crazy. Go sew them side by side at Currys.
It's will be a hard choice
Qled is a good technology but I personally think oled edges it I have a Panasonic 65EZ1002. The black levels makes massive difference to overall picture quality. Hence why I still have my pioneer kuro. Had no issues with screen burn.

Maybe not in normal daylight viewing.
The prices are now getting more realistic. A little more discount and it'll be hard to refuse
Waiting for a decent price on the 49".

The Panasonics anti glare deals with that problem.
Smashing TV. I couldn't stretch to it when I bought recently and opted for an MU7000 :(. Still happy with it though as I stop-gap to micro LED or OLED gets to where I want it to be. I'd have went to this though!

I had been holding onto a G20 Panny plasma for 7 years waiting for OLED to get to where I want it to be, who knows if it ever will be. I remember what it was like having to babysit my first Plasma and the wife not listening when pausing the PVR and leaving the guide up. Despite what people will tell you, retention and burn-in are real, just look at the LG Support forums and they also highlight poor LG support. Mind I now know that Samsung are no better, given how they refuse to provide iPlayer UHD on anything other than 2017 models. My sister-in-law paid over £3k for a 9500 in 2015, still a better TV than mine, and no iPlayer support. Sickening.

And very well I'm sure. It's just the diminishing returns on the inky blacks when there is external light of any form
Not found a problem with daylight. Jeremy Kyle looks stunning on my oled

How are you finding the mu7000? I went for that aswell and its ok on new HD stuff but older stuff the colours are awful. The xbox one x looks amazing but Im well into my films so a little dissapointed. Tempted to sell

The Virgin looks pretty bad but then that's more the Virgin. Did you change any settings? It's pretty bad on standard, especially the sharpness at 50 by default! Pixelation everywhere and EPG looks terrible but much improved turning it right down. The calibration settings recommend 0 but I found around 15 looked better to me, especially playing games. I use mine mostly for UHD and standard Blu-rays and a PS4 and happy enough. What size did you get? The 49 uses an inferior panel to the larger sizes but not sure how that translates to image quality as I've never compared one to mine. There was a guy on AVForums saying his looked washed out, but I don't have that experience. Definitely try and compare it to another.

I thought the 49" and 55" use the same panel.

The MU7000? 49 is 8-bit + FRC 60hz and the larger sizes 10-bit, 120hz panel.

Personal choice, OLED has more accurate colour reproduction and QLED to me looks over exposed and slightly unnatural but I know a lot of people like that and as you say call it more 'vibrant'

Got my eye on the MU7000 after being lucky with the tesco Ps4 deal, seems to get good reviews?
I went for the 55inch so its a better panel than the 49inch. The viewing angles are really poor ...soon as off centre the colours look all washed out! Ive spent hours messing about with the settings. Its older films/tv even when in HD look weird. Newer stuff/current tv look good. tried 2 x 4k blu rays and looked good but wasnt blown away. The xbox was a different story tho....looks unbelievable!

its a good tv but if you can afford I wish I splashed out on the OLED now to be honest. If its mainly for games cant be faulted.

Display specs show the 55" as 120hz 49" as a 60 Hz but both as a 8bit+frc not that would make a difference without local dimming
Good deal. Was just looking at this tv in currys yesterday. They had the oled from LG beside it and honestly I would choose the qled from Samsung. Colours are better and the picture action is smoother. The oled was very jerky in comparison. I also didn’t like the slight blue tinge of the oled when you are viewing from a slight angle.

tempted at this price!

This.
Everyone says oh no go for OLED.. much better yadda yadda.. but conveniently forget that the smallest OLEDS are 55". I want a decent TV for the bedroom and 49" is the biggest I can get away with ;).
Need something very good because I've been spoilt with a panny ZT65 plasma in the lounge. I know its only 1080p but nothing touches it for picture quality.
Ok I was oled diehard after reading reviews checking all the oled ranges out and checking qled out

I hate to say it but yes oled has great blacks ect
but there are serious flaws with the oled panels and I’m sorry for £1500 it’s not a risk I’m willing to take so think for now this is the best Buy at the price

If your comparing your plasma to modern oled for picture quality then there isn't a comparison. As for 1080p plasmas the zt65 whilst a good tv wasn't as good as a pioneer Kuro. Unfortunately yes oled doesn't come in smaller then 55"
OLED....all the way.
Does not make sense to buy the Samsung, when for approx £300 more, you can experience true visual excellence.

But the OP is a good telly at a more realistic price point for a 4k LCD.

When I seen it in the store the action pics were not smooth and were very jerky. The colours on the qled were also more rich whilst still looking natural.

i think it’s a personal preference and you need to see the two side by side.
OLED is better, it's just the nature of the beast. Samsung didn't pursue OLED screens (in their TVs) as they said it was not very profitable, not sure if that remains the case. However, image retention is INEVITABLE with OLED, again its the nature of the beast, hench why most OLED panels will have some sort of image correction built in. Retention isn't permanent, but image burn in is. If either retention and burn in is of any cause of concern to you, get a Samsung LCD, for the price, it will be hard to best and piece of mind is priceless! Personally, if I could afford it, I'd go Phillips 55" POS9002 (OLED)
Think ile wait and see if richersounds or currys match so can have a 5yr or 6yr warranty included

I have seen both side by side. You can't compare in a store with all picture processing at maximum etc which the likes of Currys do to give maximum effect. But I agree with you it is a personal preference. Mine is oled

I got a g20 42 inch still in the bedroom. Good solid tv.

Was either after this or the b7v to replace my 3yr ub850v
Excellent TV

A TV screen or monitor is only as good as its black levels. Nothing does that better than OLED, There really is no comparison.
Go do some more research, and please understand i am genuinely not trolling you.
Maybe you get click rewards from the QLED crew?........whatever, but you are really very wrong!
seems a good price and a good TV.

Reading through the conversations regarding TV's , i think it is an absolute minefield to decide what to buy 'almost' regardless of your budget...for most of us anyway.

I was told this was a good TV and 1 of the best about for its money
SONY BRAVIA KD65XE9005 65" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED

So sort of started looking what i would be best buying and honestly.......i have no idea what to buy for my next TV
I’m holding out for ZLED - that’s going to beat everything!!! (unless I’ve been misled)
