Simply can’t go wrong with LG OLED. Obviously there are improvements year to year, but there has not been a bad model to own to date.

"definitely go OLED". always from OLED owners of course.

The high-end LCDs and the OLEDs are both really nice and I wouldn't really listen to the advice of anyone that tells you one is certainly better than the other. They each have their own perks.

And then it's a matter of preference I think. For me personally, the positives of an OLED do not outweigh the negatives. For me, LCD (FALD) does, so that's why I always go with that.

Agreed. OLED is a great TV if you watch it only for movies and you watch it in the right way (in dark environments). It is NOT a good "everyday" kind-of TV.

Burn-in problems are still very relevant for any OLED owner. If you don't use the TV in "the right way" then you will encounter burn in problems. It's just a sad fact.

For Fox and CNN news go LED.
For cinema maison (movies) go OLED.
For TV soap operas go QLED.

This is not the bible, this is only a rough guide. Because you certainly can watch movies with any technology.

For gaming go LED.

Considering the ZD9 is an LCD, I say LCDs > OLEDs.

It definitely is a tv you need to treat better than one would an lcd, but its not that bad. To your points

Yes, i wouldnt watch cnn nonstop with it or hardcore mountain dew fueled rage gaming. Its mostly geared toward movies, tv shows, and light gaming.

Its a bit of a myth on it not handling daylight viewing. My family room is 410 sq ft, has 2 decent sized windows, huge glass french doors, and a 2x8 skylight, and zero issue watching content on it on a cloudless sunny day. Would i use an oled for an outdoor patio tv in miami? No... but for 99.99% of tv locations, oled is just as good.

Burn in is pretty much non issue for 2017 models. I fell asleep one night with it on, and it spent a good 6 hours straight sitting on a tv show menu. Not even any image rentention, let alone burn in. That right there tells ya you REALLY gotta mess up to have it occur if a 6 hour static image didnt do a thing. Thst said, i freaked out, and ran 18% gray image tests that day, thought for sure id screwed myself. But again, nada.

Proud owner of an LG OLED65C7V for a week now.
Right now I am typing this on my tv. Curtains opened, in a light room.
I had a 10 year old Samsung LCD and that one was way harder to 'read' than this OLED panel.
The fact that people keep mentioning daylight viewing problems with OLED confuses me. Let me tell you: It really isn't an issue. It depends on your settings of course, but even with some sunlight the tv holds up very well.

I think it also comes down to budget. I could have gotten myself a pretty decent 75" LCD for probably even less money than the LG cost me. But I wanted the best image quality.
Also: I don't watch tv. So no image retention issues for me with logo's etc. My tv is used for movies, Netflix and the use of my HTPC.

There are very good LCD tv's if you don't want to go for OLED. The Sony KD-65A1 is a very good example as it comes very close to OLED quality.
But unfortunately it comes at a price tag of around $3000 so then my choice would be OLED...

In the end, it all comes down to size one is interested in and that person's budget. I will say this though, once you go OLED, you'll never go back to LCD/LED.

We all have our priorities and preferences, so to each his own. But I'll stick with high end FALD LCD TVs until MicroLED has proven itself.

Most people who watch CNN news and sports and play games on their OLED TVs after two years don't mind with logos retention. It's not like you can see them constantly. The tradeoffs are worth it. They are still beautiful TVs, OLED made by Panasonic, Sony, LG and few more.

" In 2018 and we now have seven TV manufacturers with OLED sets in their TV line-up: LG, Panasonic, Sony, Philips, Toshiba, Bang & Olufsen and Loewe. The other six all source their panels from LG Display."
