But of course VGC ends up saying "buy a sony!!!"
If you must go LED, buy a samsung QLED. Simple.

Do you not read the things you link?
More Versatile Alternative
If you're not very sensitive to input lag or if you simply play games more casually, the Sony X900E is a good alternative to the Vizio P Series. It offers a more versatile set of features to fit a more varied usage. It doesn't have quite as low an input lag as the P Series with standard video games, but it doesn't suffer from higher latencies with HDR games, making it better suited for those looking to invest in an HDR capable console in the near future.
Sometimes I get hooked on a game for a long time. Like Elite Damgerous 9 months continuously, game running for many hours a day, in the background while doing other stuff. Same with racing games. Now I leave GT Sport on with the timer countdown, do the occasional sport race when it's up then it sits idle again for 20 minutes or more with the Tag Heuer logo right in the middle. Do I want to worry about switching inputs frequently for a small gain in image quality that might not even last over the lifetime of the tv? Would you recommend it to people playing the same online games year round for hours every night?
I'm sure damage won't be as fast or extreme as that test shows. However what they prove is that the tv shows wear from day one. All you can do is make sure to distribute that wear evenly. Yet image quality is still slowly degrading from day 1. As a living room tv that sees over 10 hours a day of use and is expected to be used for 10 years, that doesn't sound all that great. LED maintains proper white balance during it's lifespan, and although LG claims OLED can now match the 100,000 hour lifespan of LCD, this test shows that its clearly showing wear much faster than LCD.
