Nice man

Funny you should bring this back up, I have been thinking about these for some ATMOS sound

I think budget might get in the way at the moment though

Still waiting on my new TV cabinet, hence using a pikey one for now and not tidying the wires or the boxes.

Can't recommend this OLED enough buddy; brilliant colour. The E7 is apparently 25% brighter than the E6 (The one I have) but pretty much everything else is the same...if HDR is your thing there is support for HDR10 and Dolby Vision out of the box :up:

There are still plasma TVs out there?

My first panel was a plasma. I still remember the day so well paying $14k AUD back then thinking they'd never get any cheaper :smirk: I could have bought a small car for the money...

Gawd that Panasonic 42inch was a heavy beast but a great set. Sold it in 2011 for $100 :smirk:

I bought two Samsung PN8500's right before they stopped making them around 3 years ago.

A friend was debating whether to go LED or OLED - I remember him saying the difference in quality was incredible. What size did you go for?

Checking the price I don't think I'll be getting a 65" one :ducky:

The blacks on an OLED are incredible, but the nits do not go as high. LG claim 800 on the 7 series but the QLED Samsung can do a theoretical 2000 nits, but the blacks are nowhere near as good. Depends what you want; for me there wasn't a choice to make after seeing them one after another.

I went 55 inch and paid £2000, which people bawk at until they realise it's the E series, not the B or C series. You'll struggle to get the E6 now; pretty much isn't available from anywhere.

In the end my friend bought a 65" Hisense "normal" LED TV. It looks great, the reviews for it are great, but he said he wished he'd never looked at the OLED ones :D

Yeah, if you watch a lot of films/TV that's not too bad of an investment really :).

Any burn-in after 2 years don?


I stumbled across this article a while ago. They're adding gsync support to the 9 series.

No screenburn for me, which is nice. Still impressed with the colours and blacks. Cracking TV.

Yeah I saw the nvidia bit as well; that's a nice little bonus to be fair.

Oh boy - you are in for a treat.
Do you have a 4k player? If so, I recommend Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Pacific Rim (original) on 4k disc. Properly shows off the colours that the screen can produce.

Yeah, i’ve seen a few..GoG2, Dunkirk, Blade Runner and some dolby vision stuff on netflix. Absolutely amazing.

I’m probably going to use it for gaming more though since it has 120hz and VRR. I loaded up Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The HDR and pure blacks in the opening cave sequence blew me away.

I’m looking for a displayport1.4->hdmi2.1 converter but i don’t think they make them yet. Until then no 4k 120hz or 10bit color.

Guardians 2 should have been Dolby Vision on disc as well, hence the recommendation. Dunkirk is a beaut too, especially sound wise.

That TV will continue to impress you for years to come; OLED is stunning :)
