It's a toss up between q95t and CX. :fear:

 

Both have advantages.

If all you want is blinding brightness and no burn-in concern, then Samsung.

CX apparently has subpar HDR brighness (And yes I'm new to HDR :fear: )

Other than burn in and higher brightness (useless imo when OLED gives infinite contrast), no advantages for Samsung. LG CX is the best. Also, Dolby Vision. 

But CX can't decode DTS

Correct they skipped on that and it makes me lose my sh*t everytime I see Audio not supported. For this you will need a external player. 

HDR brightness is more than enough infact I dont even use full peak brightness in any settings, I sit 5 feet away from the Tv though. 

C1 is basically going to be the CX with the awful looking tile based WebOs with some extra software based AI stuff and features.

The OLEDs get bright enough to burn your eyes. Unless somebody is letting direct sunlight hit the screen, I cannot think of any conceivable reason to look for more brightness.

I sadly can't wait and need to buy the TV very soon. It's a toss up between them.

 

Both of them are much superior to the X9000H and I don't want to go for the A8H

More brightness = higher rate of burn in or so my limited googling tells me. I think the culprit is Automatic Brightness Limiter.

OLED and Digital are the only true paths to redemption when judgement is upon us. The infidels will torment under the curse of FALD and discs.

You wouldn't have a problem with burn-in per se. If you don't watch 8hrs of DTH a day, get the OLED. You'll be fine and never regret it.

DTS is a minor issue for sure, but remember that it won't be a long term one if you end up getting a soundbar or A/V receiver because they'll process your audio instead. The CX has decent enough audio, but it won't come anywhere close to a dedicated setup.

 

I'd say the Samsung not having Dolby Vision is a much bigger deal.

HDR specs say lower brightness levels are fine if your black levels are low enough and CX literally has infinite contrast and blackest blacks possible. 

Dark room HDR on OLED is unparalleled. However, yes it's not that usable in a bright room. 

The brightness isn't even that low. It peaks out at 750 nits I think.

It's just gaming as the primary use case. However Fifa etc has a lot of static HUD's and quite bright, Yeah I might be oer thinking.

"They" say that DTS etc is not even allowed as a pass through, that's a bummer.

But the ABL kicks in when a large portion of the screen is bright. Copied from rtings the stats are given as:

HDR Sustained 2% Window  752 cd/m²

HDR Sustained 10% Window  775 cd/m²

HDR Sustained 25% Window  433 cd/m²

HDR Sustained 50% Window  287 cd/m²

HDR Sustained 100% Window  140 cd/m² 

 

As you all are saying it might be enough. I visited a Croma showroom that was receiving direct sunlight (and the CX happened to be situated right there) and it was almost impossible to see the screen from certain angle

So cheap 4k aren't great fit gaming? I was thinking of getting a Samsung 8000 series TV.

 

You can play on them but you'll miss out on some of the features offered by higher end TV especially HDMI 2.1 option which going forward is much needed.

I guess you are talking about RU8000 and that model is quite average. Contrast is good but brightness really lacks. I wouldn't recommend it.

If you are talking about samsung/LG/Sony then cheap isn't that bad, although I would recommend shelling out some extra and buy a high end and mid end tv. But absolutely NO to other cheap brands!!

Honestly there really are only 3-4 worthy options in india

45k - Toshiba u7980

70k - Samsung Frame

90k - Sony x900H (won't recommend since OLED is close) 

1.2L - LG CX
