IMO:
If you mainly watch TV, news, and/or sports, get a Samsung QLED. No risk of burn-in and they go BRIGHT.
If you mainly watch movies in a light-controlled room, get OLED. Turn the “OLED light” setting down to 70 or lower, and enjoy unmatchable blacks and contrast ratios.

This 65” OLED at <$2,000 is amazing. The E-series also has great sound built-in, so you can put off buying a sound bar for a bit. Slightly Smiling Face
Agreed. I watch all sports. Bought a Q9 75. Greatest decision I ever made.

Haha “there isn’t an issue with burn in” I’m one of those who prefer plasma over lcd/led all day. I’d be happy to consider OLED as an option. And while I personally didn’t have an issue with burn in on plasma...it existed. In this case the OLEDs absolutely 100% do have burn in issues. Whether it will affect you is unknown.

But if you don’t believe in OLED burn in, then buy this one on Kijiji right now for $750 then!

It's a crap shoot. I have burn-in on my C7 that I have had for only a year due to too much Monster Hunter (yellow stamina bar permanently etched into upper left-hand corner). It's generally not noticeable, but when you do see it, it's pretty much unseeable for the next few days. Costco warranty doesn't cover it nor does LG, so I am SOL. I might relegate it to my basement and pick-up a QLED if it continues to bother me.

I just use dark settings from rtratings for regular tv viewing (24 oled light setting) and for movies Dolby zVision Standard (95 oled light). Standard tv isn't worth watching on bright settings.

Checked in store and the price is indeed $1999 for the 65", but there are only 2 stores in AB that have 1 in stock each (likely demo units).
I wouldn't buy an oled demo unit. They run those 24/7 on full brightness. Oled loses brightness over time.
