No, my mate bought a B7 on my advice quite recently though. Gears of War 4 and Battlefront 2 on the XB1X are simply stunning.

He doesn't game for hours and hours like i do so its wait and see if i take the plunge on OLED atm. He can afford to buy a replacement TV if it gets ****** too. I cannot
Anyone know if the 10 free UHD movies are download or physical copies? Got a KS8000 so not sure whether to upgrade hmm thanks for sharing though!
Do the backs stay glued on? Went through 4 KS7000 before I gave up.

They are rented movies that only last 72 hours I think.
I voted hit as this is the lowest I've seen it.
Personally I'd go read a few reviews of this tv before you take the plunge.
It's good set but there's better ones for similar prices.
The 49" Sony might be a better option

The 49" Sony might be a better option


The XE90 is the better TV but not by that much, some might not even notice the difference. Also you have to take into account that this is 900 pounds for a very good 55" as opposed to 950 pounds (minimum) for a better smaller TV. I have the XE90 and wouldn't swap it for the MU9000. But the MU9000 is almost as good for SDR and HDR, has a bigger screen and costs less. That's pretty compelling.
Heat {I personally prefer the Sony of course :)}

I like Oled but a one horse race with lg panels for everyone is a problem. Image retention, limited brightness with HDR and just above black problems are delaying my purchase. Going to stick with my plasma a little longer though the prices and becoming more realistic. I'm keen on the HDR focussed TVs with 1500 nits and above. Especially since I watch tv with ambiant lighting so perhaps brightness is more important than blacks.
Price matched by JL.

Correct.

Im having second thoughts reading about the clouding and having no Dolby Vision.
Tempted by this my mate
Has the KS8000 and that's a lovely TV, but I think Samsung skipped a bit on this year's models due to QLED being introduced.

Also this or the Sony xe9005?

I currently have a 6 year old Sony kdl40nx7

We might see a 2018 Sony LCD flagship regularly hit 1500cd/m². The ZD9 does around 1000-1400cd/m² depending on scene.

I wouldn't worry about HDR format support at this point in the range, you're going to be far more limited by the hardware than the software. I don't think there are any HDR sources on the UK market that only offer Dolby Vision versions and not HDR10 alongside.

Go for the Sony, it has full array back light.
Neither set will be able to support Dolby vision though.
If the budget goes to it then the Sony xe93 will get that so it's a bit more future proof but I'd say at the minute it's not worth it.
If your upgrading every 4/5 years then this set or the Sony xe90 will see you through till then, by which time there may actually be some content available that uses that stuff.

Thanks for your advice pal, yeah I'm leaning towards that, I do like the Samsung Tv os slightly better than the Sony but at the end of the day the picture is the main thing I wonder if the x93 will be reduced over the next couple if days.

I wouldn't count on it, I haven't seen the price move much at all on the xe93 though I guess it's possible there could be some reduction boxing day or January.

Trust me you don't need 1500 nits. Overall contrast ratio is more important than HDR for day to day viewing with or without ambient lighting. That's why the OLEDs look so good (Also the 7 series OLEDs have mostly sorted the near black issues). What they don't have is bright HDR so the highlights on my TV will look better than OLED

On the Samsung Q/Sony X94 series (1000 nit+) TVs, highlights will look stunning. The more nits you have the better highlights with detail you can have. Less blown out highlights. When combined with WCG then you get a much greater range of shades with results in more realistic colours, reflections etc.

The above explanation is likely to be an oversimplification

Hope this helps.

P.S. My eyes occasionally still get fatigued when watching HDR content in a darkened room

The Sony being FALD will have better contrast, black levels and uniformity. So better for dark room watching.The Samsung has much higher HDR peak brightness

My explanation was simplified too. Both types of displays can look stunning. Watching in a darkened room is left for my projector. Tv is family and general viewing in whatever the room finds itself. Kids with tablets, doors open, lights on and other limitless variations. My plasma with full glass panel is a nightmare right now with Christmas tree lights twinkling.lol.

It makes so little difference it's impossible to tell. My guess would be probably not, or possibly only on the 55"+ models.

Nope definitely a 10 bit panel. That along with FALD is what makes the 49" XE90 unique. Oh and it definitely makes a difference for HDR and WGC

In what way?
EndlessWaves6 m ago

In what way?


10-bits gives you 1024 colours, 8-bits gives you 256. That means you get a lot more shades with WGC and a lot more subtleties, more lifelike colour and better contrast with HDR. DolbyVision is 12-bit so if in the future we get 12-bit TVs then that will give us 4096 colours.
