Forums - General Discussion - Should I wait for OLED to drop or just buy 4K LED now?

Hey guys, I'm in a slight dilemma here. I can get a 4K HDR Bravia LED(Sony KD55X9000E 55") right now for really cheap. OLED TV sets are still very expensive and I'm currently playing on a full HD Bravia at the moment which is good but the tech is old now. I do want a big jump going from my 1080P Bravia 55", is 4K OLED worth waiting for over standard 4K LED? Is it night and day difference between 4K LED and 4K OLED?

You won't regret it but I'm waiting for the oled sets with low input lag to get under 1000.



Don't game on OLEDs. The burn in is a real threat to your screen.

I assume that model number is your country's version of the XBR55X900E, in which case I say get that.

Oh wow... That really changes the situation...

You are correct, in Australia the model number is inverted slightly. Actually now looking at a KD65x9300E(KD-65X93E elsewhere in the world?) now which has the Extreme Processor which is 65" and only a few hundred more...

I don't normally recommend X930E to people, despite me owning one. It's a badass TV, but a bit pricey. The average Joe will get better mileage out of their dollar for the X900E, but my work discount puts the X930E in the price range of reasonable.

i can get the x93e for 1,500us. the australian dollar is a bit weak though so its not apples for apples hehe.
