If I were buying a tv for a large living/dining room today, personally I'd go for the latest Loewe Bild 7. Loewe tv's have come down a lot of in price in my neck of the woods, so they're now more competitive with high end Sony and LG's.
I didn't check for the lowest of lowest price...like Amazon perhaps, and on next Black Friday those should be even lower. OLED TVs are still relatively expensive, in particular in the 77" Class. But they came down enormously below that Class, like in the 65" and 55" Class.
But overall OLED TVs are still the best.
Those 5 above from the Forbes link I just posted, they are truly the best. IMO and in the opinion of several video experts. And only the LG C9 OLED comes in the 77" Class.
Sometimes I am wondering if Vincent doesn't get a "cut" from LG electronics.
I always perceived him as an honest and unbiased and fair and ethical professional video calibrator TV and Projector reviewer. It's a tough world if you want to survive unscathed and intact without a scratch.
But in the overall state of the affairs both Sony and LG and Panasonic OLED TVs are among the very best. Panasonic OLED TVs by the way are not available in the United States of America.
So for the USA it's between Sony and LG, with OLED.
I ended up with a AF8. Looked at the AF9. I cannot do the kick stand. Are the new A9G' available? are they that much better? if so, I possibly could upgrade what I have as I am still in the review period.
Yes the A9G is available. Are they better than last year model; not by very much according to the experts, but improved nonetheless. It's like in audio; even a slight improvement counts for hardcore audiophiles.
