OLED vs QLED

Found 14th May
Can anyone give me any advice on the pros/cons of these? I appreciate that there is a monetary difference but tech guy in John Lewis was saying QLED was a better buy regardless of cost.

You're not comparing like with like there.

OLED is a screen technology while QLED is a model range.

The OLEDs are all very similar as production is still scaling up rather than diversifying, but the LCD TVs in Samsung's QLED range do vary quite a bit. It makes a huge difference whether you're comparing the Q6 or the Q9FN.

Generally OLED's strengths are for a traditional home cinema setup. Lots of blurry (sorry, 'cinematic') low framerate films and dark surroundings, while the higher end of the LCD ranges like Sony's ZD9, XE94 and samsung's Q9FN are better in a normal well lit living room environment with bright content.

Also nanocell from LG
Shocking that a tech guy would say anything is better regardless of cost and also to not give a proper comparison.

Qled is just clever marketing as Samsung blew it by not supporting OLED technology - like making curved seem desirable before and making people think that upscaling means you get a better quality result.

The top of the range Qled this year is prob the best LCD on the market. But whether you prefer LCD or OLED is up to you - unless you need a super bright HDR image I bet you'll prefer OLED (just wait for C8 to drop in price later in the year)

Like Samsungs QLED TVs LG is pushing out Nanocell TVs for the home cinema/gaming market. No one is giving up on LCD tech anytime soon. OLED is damn expensive tech and besides buying panels from LG it's expensive tech to produce. OLED is great now but its issues mean that companies are actively looking for lower cost technology to replace it. This generation of LCD filters and local dimming might not last but newer tech will be based on them.
But the OP was just asking about Qled vs OLED after a poor shop service - speculation about the future wont really help them.

Some of this tech is coming out monthly, you're speculating that these TVs wont be old hat by next year. HDMI 2.1 is another new update to TVs and will probably be a must have in the following years. Better to buy a cheaper set now and update later.
OLED is an actually advancement. QLED is old LCD tech. just brighter bulbs the blacks still are grey. HDR on QLED will look amazing tho but prefer the true blacks and PQ of OLED
