Looking into a 4K TV, any recommendations?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Looking into a 4K TV, any recommendations?

Hmm my X900E seems possessed by Netflix. I just got back in and for the second time this week it has turned itself on to the Who's watching Netflix screen after I had turned everything off for sure. I did watch Netflix on it earlier today.

I disabled remote control from other devices in the settings which I hadn't turned off before, maybe that helps. (All other remote wake ups and what not are off as well) When I google it the same issue comes up with Samsung TVs. Maybe it's the Android OS doing it, the tv had a software update a week ago. I could always unplug it but the boot up sequence takes half a minute (fuck modern tech)

At least the Netflix welcome screen shouldn't burn in over night on a LED tv, yay?


Update / Solution:

Apparently it is the OS that keeps the apps running in the background. Both times I had watched Netflix before it happened and it seems there is a bug in the OS that it can sometimes switch back to the still waiting Netflix app in the background after turning the tv off. To make sure it doesn't happen, press the home button for 3 seconds which brings up a list with the running apps and dismiss Netflix before turning the tv off.

That is my take on current TVs. I wouldn't go any lower than the Getting By list. Worth it to save and wait to get a TV that can do proper HDR.

I personally prefer Full Array Local Dimming over OLED, because the peak brightness is much higher in a good TV, and the black levels are still very impressive.

I choose the Z9D over the A1E or the W7P/G7P. For me the unmatched peak brightness and true white, with near perfect blacks, was a bigger draw than perfect blacks, with underwhelming peak brightness, and yellow looking whites.

Your Z9D must be blazingly bright! I find the 900E very bright already and that's less than half the peak brightness of the Z9D.

I'm used to watching movies on my projector set to 15fl open gate brightness for home theater, which is 51 nits, 7.5% of what the Z9D produces in sustained open gate (full screen white) Amazing how tech advances! Projectors are really outdated now, no great black level and woefully unsuited to HDR, yet I love the size. Still feels like sitting in the cinema.



Thanks for all the input guys. It at least gives me an idea of what to go for. My current TV is a plasma and I remember getting image retention after playing a few hours of God of War. The health bar showed up everywhere for a long long time, so I'm not sure I wanna risk buying a new TV that can have the same problem.

I like the Panasonic OLEDs. The software in them seems to produce a more natural colour than the LG or Sony panels.

How much will you spend at most? Which screen size will it have?

I think $CAD 2000 will be the upper limit, for size somewhere between 55" and 65".

I just ordered a 65' Sony 4K X900E Thursday night and got a 200 dollar gift card at Best Buy in Canada. The Pro is on for $399.99 so I am using the GC on that today. My theatre system just crapped out on me last week. So that's all that's left now.

I got about 700 bucks left to spend on that. Thinking either a package surround sound system or just a sound bar with a sub woofer.

The Sony X900E is on sale atm for CAD 1900 at best buy, online only though. I paid 2500 for it 2 months ago, that's a great deal. The LG C7 is also on sale yet CAD 3000 for the 65", CAD 2000 for the 55". (matching the Sony X930E) The Z9D and A1E are CAD 4500 for 65". Prices go up fast on the high end. Don't even look at 75" screens :)

The X900E is definitely the best value for price atm, it already was for me at 2500. Too bad my tv broke and I couldn't wait until BF deals.

Get the Skyrim PSVR kit, it's simply phenomenal. It looks great on the pro thanks to super sampling. Then you have the best of both worlds, HZD on the 900E and Skyrim in VR, amazing year!

But I guess you do need sound lol. Make sure whatever you buy has hdmi 2.1

ir/burn in topic

Just going to point out the obvious in that you linked to LG to discuss OLED reliability, as if they aren't going to be obscenely biased.

 

Here's a link from an actual burn-in test that is still ongoing from a website that legitimately doesn't care which TV is the best, since they make money from any links used to buy TV's:
