    Good price. I still haven’t opened my P7 from the sale last month. 😬

    How does this compare to them OLED TV's I keep hearing about?

    Just got an Xbox One X, and want to get the max out of its visual ability.

      this TV has amazing reviews (for a non oled)
      It's the best non oled TV for this year (according to many reviews)

      • -1 vote

        It is one of the best LED or maybe best value for money but not the best LED out there.

        Checkout a Samsung Q9FN in store and you will be amazed. I always thought QLED was a gimmick until I saw a Q9FN in store next to a Sony X90F. They are nearly on par with OLED. Even a Samsung Q7FN is better than Sony X90F even though it is only edge lit and not a full array like Sony. They are outrageously expensive though and having waited so long for them to fall in price, I think I might end up buying a Sony X90F.

          I went into buy a Q9FN and as soon as I switched the 4K demo to normal TV… pass… I went with the A9F from Sony. Far better visually on SD/HD and the audio quality blows the Samsung out of the water. But, as you said, both those screens are far more pricey than this one!

          Why is the deal marked expired? I thought it went until midnight online?

          A Samsung Q7FN is not better than this TV. The Q8 is only slightly better.

      I recently bought this tv from bing lee eBay store when they had 20% off. The tv is nice with decent colours but the viewing angle is really bad. You’ll have to be sitting straight up front to view the best output.
      From the sides colours are not bad but you can see a lot of blooming on the black background.

      •  

        Agreed, I just got this TV too, unfortunately for more than this but whatever as im pleased with it.

        The Angle can be an issue however I always watch from the front and also, I don't notice any blooming on my panel. Colours are fantastic.

        I have both Xbox one X/PS4 Pro, games look vibrant, minimal input lag(its actually not noticeable unless you're into pro gaming and even then why wouldn't you get a monitor for that)

      •  

        How's the stock sound?

    •  

      I bought the 55 inch of this and though it was very nice, I didn't find it much better than my previous Samsung LCD. So I took it back and swapped it for the LG C8 and I ruddy love it! Red Dead xbox one X is just beautiful on it.

      If your primary use is gaming I would stay away from OLED (screen burn issues), one or two hours at a time should be okay though.

      For xbox use I would get a Samsung LCD with freesync, which varies/locks the refresh rate to the output of the xbox.

        I have the lg c8 and have done multi hour PS4/Xbox sessions and no burn in. The burn in on oleds was an issue on the early models from 2-3 years ago.

        Of course if you pause a screen for hours it'll burn in but not when used normally.

        • +1 vote

          Yeah image retention is a lot better nowadays due to the (some say overly) aggressive auto brightness limiting (ABL) when a static image is detected, but some also say that's a problem in itself as once you notice it, you will see it all the time and it's really distracting.

          • -1 vote

            @CH: The ABL never kicks in with games unless the screen is more than 60-70% white. There was a bug in LG TV's that was fixed yesterday with HDR dimming in scene changes..

            RTINGS TV has been playing FIFA and COD for 6000 hours straight without burn in. Really isn't an issue unless you are running news banners etc.. all day

        For consoles, OLED might be OK but definitely not to use as PC monitor.

      Generally speaking OLED is superior to IPS for gaming which is what I believe this TVs are.

      The exception is if you use a brightly lit area to use the TV in.

      • -1 vote

        Mate… I don't know where you get your beliefs from…
        it says LED in the title, IPS TVs are very rare
        IPS is mainly used for high-end gaming monitors

        •  

          Actually IPS panels are very common in TV's. This model and Samsung range are VA Panels. High end Hisense and TCL also use VA. Every other model is IPS So basically the best LED TV's are VA as the contrast, brightness and blacks are so much better…. Don't know where you get your beliefs from! I've had OLED that got burn in then sent it back within 30 days. Rather have my Sony X9300E anyday. Brightness is about triple, sometimes more because of ABL in bright scenes for OLEDs. No worry about burn in and basically superior in every way other than blacks (Which it comes close to in many scenes)

          •  

            @Monstalova: It takes thousands of hours to burn in ( https://www.rtings.com/tv/learn/real-life-oled-burn-in-test ) an OLED TV, so I'm calling garbage on burning one in 30 days. It took more than 3000 hours at max brightness displaying news banners for 20 hours a day 7 days a week to get burn in.

            XE93 loses in response time, contrast ratio, viewing angle, colour gamut; basically everything aside from brightness with large windows.

            •  

              @Tommo53: You're calling garbage? What from someone who can't afford OLED!? All you do is read payed off reviews and believe marketing gimmicks. I don't need to justify myself to someone like you. If you think OLEDs need a minimum of 3000 hours for burn in you're seriously naive and deluded! They have image retention that will stay on the screen after minutes of a picture being displayed. The C7 I had was awful for brightness, ABL made the the screen dim dramatically whenever a brighter picture came on looked like it flickers into eco mode. No such thing as pure white on OLED it's a shade of blue. Contrast is only relevant to how bright and how dark it is. So when the TV can only display 150 nits for an overall picture and 500 nits for a 10% highlight you lose your colour gamut as the brighter shades cannot be displayed properly. I guess they don't tell you that in their marketing! Viewing angles they definitely win but I don't make a habit of viewing my TV from the side of the room. OLED response time is superior but it actually makes for a worse picture. It's almost instantaneous which cause judder as the frames separate too quickly. With the Sony it is around a hundredth of a second which you need for a smooth transition between frames. Just google pixel response. I don't know why you decided to respond with an opinion of OLED when all you're doing is quoting a website. Rtings actually called the C7 the best PC monitor at the time I bought it, now they have to put warnings and different ratings scores because of burn in. So what about the thousands of people who have had issues with burn in and obviously you don't know anyone or owned one yourself, otherwise you would have said your experiences. Next time keep your mouth shut and don't call people a liar when you have no idea what your talking about.

              P.S it was in week 4 of the burn in test they had burn in from the 200 nit OLED not the brightest one. So 20 hours a day x 28 days = 560 hours. Not 3000! You can't even quote your source properly! Look at Week 4 on their changelog list. Your argument about 30 days burn in which you call garbage, you just proved Rtings had that exact thing happen to them!

                @Monstalova: Actually I own a A8F LOL so don't claim I can't afford something I can: https://i.imgur.com/vd5MqDZ.jpg

                There is a difference between the overcompensation (lightened areas) that go away with compensation and actual burn in. The quoted uniformity issues (week 4) are due to overcompensation where the panel is driving the areas of degradation too hard causing it to be brighter than the surrounding areas. The compensation algorithm probably wasn't designed with 20hr/7days of the same image in mind.

                Burn in (permanent differential wear) does not set it until the brightness overhead is exhausted which takes 3000 + hours; which is when the field becomes dark. Go look at the 1800 hour mark at the max brightness CNN TV and the red field is perfect. Don't tell me I don't know the source when I clearly do.

                The test with the B6 burn in with 560 hours because there was no compensation implemented in that generation. They licence the Ignis patents for 2017 onwards which increased the hours to burn in 5-6x with no change in the panel: https://patents.google.com/patent/US9125278B2/en

                They then implemented 60% larger red subpixel for 2018 to increase this further.

                Even if it was 560 hours, I'm calling garbage on your 30 days burning in a C7. No such thing as pure white on OLED it's a shade of blue - BS, I have Delta E on my greyscale of less than 1.0..

                •  

                  @Tommo53: Nice stock photo of the OLED!! Don't believe that garbage for a second. Rtings show two OLEDs develop burn in after 4 weeks (FIFA and CNN) now because you look like an idiot for showing yourself up. You're trying to back pedal and make up excuses for it. The proof is right there. B6 burn in?? They are all C7 models being tested. Ive never seen someone here try to prove someone wrong but end up making themselves look stupid by showing the opposite! Well Done! Now enjoy your Soniq TV and stop googling OLED pics.

                    @Monstalova: Nice stock photo of the OLED!! Do a reverse image search and show me where it is from then. I really don't want to take your obvious bait and take a photo with my name on it.

                    Don't believe that garbage for a second. Rtings show two OLEDs develop burn in after 4 weeks (FIFA and CNN) now because you look like an idiot for showing yourself up. You're trying to back pedal and make up excuses for it. The proof is right there.

                    The lightened areas disappear at week 14. They reappear as darkened areas afterwards. This matches what I said regarding the ignis patent and the overcompensation. I'm sorry if you find it hard to comprehend, but try prove me wrong without straw man attacks. Burn in is the loss of brightness due to pixel wear. How can an area that is brighter than the surround areas be burn in? It is overcompensation by the algorithm which drives the panel harder (brighter) to maintain uniformity; a new feature for 2017 which increases the lifetime significantly from 2016 on the same panel. RTINGS purposely use the term uniformity rather than burn it because it is not. Usage that is closer to normal will not see this kind of uniformity. The actual burn in does not set in until the compensation limit is reached around 3000 hours at max brightness.

                    B6 burn in?? They are all C7 models being tested. Ive never seen someone here try to prove someone wrong but end up making themselves look stupid by showing the opposite!

                    The first OLED burn in test was with a B6 and that lasted the 500 hours: https://www.rtings.com/tv/learn/permanent-image-retention-bu...

                    Well Done! Now enjoy your Soniq TV and stop googling OLED pics.

                    Every point I have made was accurate and cited. Try prove any of my points incorrect and show you burned a C7 in 30 days. Even if the C7 lasted only 600 hours (It actually lasts 6x longer minimum) you ran your TV at max brightness with the same static logo for 20 hours a day??

                    Or was it the B6 you apparently owned here? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/328729#comment-5059246

                    Oh and you said that for 10% window, OLED can only do 500 nits. The C8 put out 918 nits.

Incredible sharp color….I wish it size 75inch but at that time it was about $7000…. if you can afford it go for size and high end Sony brand

      You're doing it wrong. You buy it now for full price then after 5pm go in and claim back 120% of the difference.

            Bought 4 Surface Pros at full price $1199 from TGG. Harvey Norman dropped the price a few weeks later to $897, there was a HN next door to this TGG. Submitted claim on website. Got 4 x 361.20 in Visa cards in the post a few weeks later.

            Visa cards need to be activated within a month of receiving and they last for a year.

          It does work, I've done it before a few times. Yes, in this instance there is a small window.

          It might not work with the extra 5% off, they will only price beat an advertised price, so the advertised price on JB Hifi will be after 20% off, so the price shown on JB's website will be $2,236.80.

          You could maybe show them the price in your cart after applying the 5% code, but I doubt that will work.

    People rave about Hisense and yet when I actually go to Hardly Normal and compare them side by side

    They are not as bright and vibant as Samsung/Sony/LG

    Even the TLC’s latest QLED line up doesn’t have the vibrancy of Sony’s normal LED TVs

    At first I thought Hisense/TLC was not set up correctly
    But no matter how much I fiddle with the settings I couldn’t quite
    Get it to look good.

    Am I delusional?

      Hisense is cheaper for a reason.

    • +1 vote

      Not everyone is looking for vibrancy in a television- display sets in store are usually calibrated to be highly saturated and to 'pop' because studies have shown this sells more units, but once the screen is at home a lot of people like to calibrate it to accurately reproduce colours, which generally involves making the picture look a lot more 'warm' and lowering the contrast and brightness settings. Just look at AVForums, where there are threads hundreds of pages long dedicated to getting the most accurate picture settings out of a screen. There are even people that go around with professional equipment and calibrate televisions for a price.

      I'm not saying Hisense is necessarily better than Samsung in this regard, just that a lot of people don't judge televisions based on 'vibrancy' when they talk about a good picture, particularly in reference to in-store screens.

      •  

        I can't stand the fluor candy demos on display TV's, and it would not convince me to buy.

        •  

          I'm the same, after having calibrated my television properly using warm settings I can never go back to the out-of-the-box settings, which just look ridiculous in comparison. Still though, there's obviously a reason store televisions are set up like that, people must just walk past sets that aren't over-saturated and go for the bright colours.

      •  

        I also do not like the artificially boosted cheesy vibrancy
        I always turn off every effect possible to get the most accurate picture possible

        But I figured that good head room in vibrancy helps during bright daylight viewing and is necessary in a practical situation.

    •  

      No one says the HiSense are better than higher priced TVs, but they offer the same features and great picture at a cheaper price. Plus the 3 year in home warranty is a selling point.
