    so, I have a deal on a Q90R.

    would you pick:
    1. Q90R Samsung 75 inch FALD
    OR
    2. 65inch LG OLED


    I already have a 65 inch panasonic 902b.

    If the Q90R has hdmi 2.1 go for it.

    It probably doesn't though so go OLED like I'm doing tomorrow.

    It just feels a bit sideways going 65 inch to 65 inch. I'll check out a 75 inch vs 65 today in store.

    where are you buying from to cover for burn in?

    65c9 will support g sync and have has hdmi 2.1 that's where my money would go even the 1st gen OLED makes my ps4 look so much sharper and smoother than an lcd

    Argh.. I am considering this. Or maybe just picking up an older OLED at 65 inches for now.. seeing if I like it and then potentially upgrading to the C9 after the November price drop which invariably occurs.

    The b8pla of my mates had some very good processing on the picture and the smoothness of motion, it's up to you depends how much you pay/lose buying a an older model as a stop gap

    Did a side by side with the even greater HDR4000 Samsung Qled 950 and still the oled wins unless you aren't allowed to close your curtains. Samsung not nvidia tested just yet and £3200.

    Just buy the knowhow insurance they've been well documented replacing peoples panels for burn in on avforums.

    I myself had a panel on a Sony XF9005 telly replaced twice because I had a single dead pixel right at the edge of the screen too so it covers pixels if you ask nicely.

    You pretty much won't get screen burn on the C9 anyway just set logo illuminance to medium and any HUD elements and TV logos will be at a slightly lower luminance to the rest of the game you're playing.

    Really? On avforums someone has just taken curry’s to court because they refused to fix burn in... its very well documented.

    Hmmm so shall I replace my crg9 with a 55 inch oled?

    They probably just walked into Currys with the receipt. You gotta buy the knowhow subscription and phone them up.

    Up to you. I can give you some impressions of desk gaming on an OLED after the weekend after I've spent a lot more time with it.

    This is quite confusing and contradictory lol! I've had a scan of it, and there isn't any specific mention of OLED burn-in that I can see, so curious why this would be assumed to be 100% covered on this policy? You'd hope so of course, but if it doesn't say so, they could surely get out of it, given even manufacturers don't consider it a fault. And with a PC, if it was used daily for hours and hours, subsequently resulting in burn-in, they might have a good argument for refusing any claim. I'm sure the internal software logs the usage, so you couldn't say otherwise, and they'd just argue it was excessive. I'd love to be wrong on this, as if I could buy an OLED without ANY fear that potential burn-in would leave me high and dry without recourse, I'd seriously consider it.
