I’ve narrowed down my choice of a new TV to two 55" sets (I’d love bigger but can’t fit more than 55" into my AV setup).
The first is a Samsung QE55Q90R the second an LG OLED55C9PLA.
Both have their advantages and disadvantages and with a cashback offer on the Samsung there is only £100 difference in price between the two.
I have watched both in a showroom and there was negligible difference between them but both were obviously in showroom mode where everything is turned up to the max so I’m hoping some people here can give me some real world feedback.
As well as TV and movies via my Vero 4K+ I watch a lot of sport, the Samsung has the advantage of a 10 year guarantee of no screen burn whereas the LG concerns me that the constant dog on screen when watching sport may cause a screen burn issue.
I will also have a PC connected which gives me more screen burn thoughts/issues.
My second concern is that generally I will be watching in a reasonably well lit room, the Samsung should perform well in this environment but how will the dimmer LG do?
Other general pro’s and cons are no eARC or Dolby Vision on the Samsung, I find Dolby Vision a bit hit and miss at the moment but when done well it certainly enhances the picture, my amp is eARC compatible so it would be nice to have this feature.
The LG has eARC and Dolby Vision but no HDR 10+ plus my other concerns posted above.
Constructive thoughts will be most welcome.
