Good time to buy an OLED now ?? Any idea on retail prices and Is LG the still best one to get?

Afaik1. LG is most economical (and good too). Some ppl have complained abt LG's UI in general

2. It seems, everyone supports Sony (on any tv)

3. I saw Samsung's 4k leds... Didnt like them et all.

 

Do check I/O ports, UI

 

Edit1: And yea... No one is spending money so good time to ask foe heavy discounts. It seems like inventory is gonna stay for atlst a month.

 

Edit2: I got 1.5k discount below offer price for Sony X7002g. Tht was on 7th Mar

Try for more

One thing i noticed, unless u cant get a side by side comparison... Its hard to judge.

Nope nope nope.

I used to feel the same way, but the PQ difference in OLED tvs is just massive. The deep blacks and vibrant colours make everything pop.

Physical store? Or online?

I currently use a 55 inch Samsung, supports 4K and HDR but its not OLED. Bought it very early in the 4K game for around 1.2 

 

My second TV which my mom mostly uses is crappy 32 inch LCD, so we were gonna get rid of that and get a regular 43 inch FHD. That wouldn't cost much, but would you recommend spending a ton more money and going for a second 55 inch? This time an LG OLED?

Brick and mortar not online.

 

Also it depends on your usage. If your primary usage is Tata sky or serials, I dont think dropping money on OLED makes sense.

 

OLED is best for Gaming or High definition movies, etc as it has true blacks and true HDR.

 

You can put your samsung tv for your mom, and get an OLED for yourself. But that totally depends on your need.

Are OLED's good on DTH?  Want to get one, but my viewing distance is 5'. I don't want to strain my eves and also don't want to see pixels!

If prinary usage is DTH , then no. No added PQ advantage for DTH plus the huge watermarks can cause a risk of burn in (however minimal the risk may be, its still there).

Thought so, I had a Sony 40" HX750 from 2012. It was amazing for DTH. All the good TV's are so big nowadays.

 

Can't get a top end TV in the 43"-49" range now.

 

I so want to get a C9/ A8G or alternatively X9500g. Unfortunately all are available in 55" or above.

Once you get used to of 55 inch it's tough to watch anything below that. I dont enjoy our 43 inch LG in living room after getting used fo of my 55 inch Sony in bedroom. In fact down the line I may even get 65 inch. Bigger the better viewing experience.

What's your viewing distance? Can you see pixelated images up close, say about 5', on regular DTH?

Hmmmm might do that.

My mom's use is mostly Tata Sky stuff and Hotstar (which isn't really up there in terms of quality). 

 

I use the TV for Netflix and Prime and anime, and to use my PS4 Pro, so yeah I might still get some good use out of it.

Anyway no big decisions till Diwali time anyway, but thankyou!

As others said, LG OLED all the way. Sony and Panasonic use LG panels, and if you really want top notch, go for Panasonic. Sony is just paying for it's brand name. WebOS UI is far better than the sh*t Android UI Sony serves (unless you are hell bent on downloading useless apps on your TV). The only 2 apps I miss on LG WebOS are Sony Liv and Apple TV+. Firestick 4k for those.

I am completely on fire stick 4k now, except for Netflix, as Dolby atmos is not present in fire stick. Otherwise I need to switch on Xbox. 

 

Once you go OLED and go 65", you just can't watch any TV.

Thanks, I'll do some viewing at the store and see if this will work at 5' for me.

 Yes they use LG panels, but the colour on Sony TV's looks more accurate and realistic to me. Don't care about UI or features, good or bad. Nothing beats good PQ :thumbsup:
