* My take: LG OLED.....Dolby Vision.....Sony Vision (OLED panels from 2016 LG OLED TVs):
I am reading a fair bunch on the best OLED TVs today for overall performance/value.
The brands that use OLED technology are LG, Sony and Panasonic ... as far as I know.
The brands that support Dolby Vision are LG and Sony (for both 4K TVs and 4K Blu-ray players). Sony is just more discreet right now (4K/BR players).
We are only @ the beginning of the Dolby Vision apotheosis. The ultimate culmination is in the future. Right now it's Vudu Dolby Vision, and on June 6th Despicable Me l and ll on 4K Blu-ray: http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/dv-bd-201703284449.htm
Remember this: LG, Sony and Panasonic are three giants in the TV business. Samsung and Vizio too (Sharp, Toshiba, tralala...) but those brands are not getting on with the OLED program. And! Sony A1E 4K Dolby Vision/HLG/HDR TV uses an OLED panel made from LG.
Panasonic I just don't know where they get their OLED panels from.
It's a jungle out there; they're all battling for our credit cards. And that's one of the reasons that they all abandoned 3D this year, for competition.
Because! Adding 3D feature in an OLED TV would diminish the brightness level, even on 2D/4K content.
OLED is the serious stuff for true cinema aficionados...IMO. Because they look their best with the lights dimmed, in darkness, like @ the cinema theaters.
If you want the most brightness (daytime watching) you can aim the other direction...LCD LED technology. There is also QLED.
Personally I never watch TV during daytime, never before late late late @ night. The only screens I look @ during the day, occasionally, are LED (OLED) from PC's screens, laptops, notebooks, androids, tablets. And there are iPhones and iPads of course, for the higher bracket. :b
I won't cry @ the death of 3D in all 2017 TVs. It will be back eventually, so I am not worry. Besides, my plasma TV is still good to go with 3D and also with less motion blur artifacts. And! Front projectors and BR players (4K) they all do (the vast majority of most of them) (((3D))). The IMAX 3D theaters are well alive and fun. ...Plus the 3D content keeps popping up on Blu and @ the theaters.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 3D Blu-ray
- The Great Wall
- The Lego Batman Movie
- Beauty and the Beast
- The Boss Baby
- Kong: Skull Island
- Ghost in the Shell
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
- Smurfs: The Lost Village
- King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
And more...Avatar sequels, Star Wars sequels, MARVEL films, DC Comics, film animations, documentaries, old obscure cult and classics, etc.
Should you buy a 75" 4K OLED TV today? Maybe; if you are rich, if it offers Dolby Vision, if you are ready to upgrade next year with even more advanced OLED TVs. Or! You can buy an inexpensive one...below say $10,000 and enjoy it for few years.
This is all very relative; we're all different, the main essence is to be healthy (mentally and physically) and happy today. :b
Financial health sure helps too. And same as living in the moment.
This is not a new Apogee speaker thread, but the apogee in OLED display today. :b
Me personally, I think LG is in the lead, and Sony is making a big effort to be 'extremely' competitive with their X1 Extreme HDR video processor chip.
Sony has always been a premium in many market segments. It's normal that they charge more money than the others, because it's part of their reputation.
For example, they released a 4K Blu-ray player (800 model) for only $299 (US) but if you look @ the back it's empty! And if you look @ the front there is no front panel display! Lol
It's a funny world the one we live in with all the audio/video manufacturers fighting for our collective infrastructure (fractured money). ...Way of speech.
We all know what the two most lucrative product businesses are in the world: Guns (arms) and oil (petroleum gas). The first one eradicates the bad people, and the second contributes to global warming. :b Like I said, it's a funny world...very unbalanced with unbalanced people.
Anyway, in the world of OLED I'm trying to find the right (best) balance.
