      If you can't see shit in dark scenes, it's because the director intended it that way. I have a dolby vision ready Oled tv (LG C2) and everything looks amazing in it.

      i've never seen an OLED and common sense tells me the opposite of this is true. surely having true blacks would mean a wider range of black values and thus more detail and clarity. if a scene is really dark then the OLED would provide greater contrast between the dark areas and the really dark areas

        It is. The parts that aren't black will stand out more because the surrounding pixels aren't bleeding light over it. There has been issues in the past where OLEDs simply were dimmer over all but we're talking 5 years ago. Its one of those meme issues like burn-in at this point. The only people who bring it up are people who don't use OLEDs.

      Because oleds were never meant for movie watching. Film and projectors doesnt have true blacks. Blacks are for fricking phones with their moronic icons with little text and for videogames.

    55" 4K with Dolby Vision and HD10+ HDR. Combined with a 4K Blu-ray player and surround sound, it gives me no reason to ever to to the theater again. Small living room, too, so 55" is pretty big, although my next will be something huge, like 75". Why no, since really good TVs are so cheap now?

    There is a point of diminishing returns on TVs, though. When you go past about $750, you are not getting much more performance. A $1500 TV is not 2x as good as a $750 TV, for instance. It might be 5-10% better, if that.

      The biggest difference comes in the little things. Technically you're right, usually the actual picture in a vacuum between a $750 and $1500 TV won't be that noticeable (with some exceptions), but often times things like viewing angle, anti-glare coatings, connections, bezel/stand design, and software options for extreme customization/gaming performance will have a difference.

        outdoor in the shade, a rock is like 3700 nits. Its not that bright. Also peak nits are more about bright spots and the ability for the tv to show brighter/colorful areas with correct grading. If you watch a really bright lcd you instantly see why its better. Like listening to ACTs or something.

          It's bright indoors, which is 99% where TVs are viewed. There is a point where brightness levels can be too much and literally hurt your eyes to watch it. Even most monitors for cameras aren't that much nits. Most are like 1000-1500, and still can be seen in direct sunlight.

            That's why I have a projector. It's just backwards that the "peak" of home film watching is a giant black slab beaming LEDs straight into your eyes than watching a giant clear projector image where the light beams onto a wall or screen instead and you can really appreciate the details and grain.

              I have thought about going the projector route, but people forget that the projector is only half the setup. A good screen is necessary if you want to get the most out of the projector. And projectors don't have much life, either. They are peak for kino watching, though.

                A screen isn't even required with modern projectors, since they've been designed to cast to a simple white wall. Also most quality projectors have built in settings to color shift incase you have a yellow, gray, blue, pink, etc wall. Lastly an LED or Laser projector will probably outlast a modern smart TV.

      If low level wagies can afford OLED than how are people seething becuase they're "poor"? High IQ people just understand that you guys fell for the meme. An OLED is great for a phone where you need to use it in sunlight and the battery life is improved. It's not so great for games and movies where image retention will create burn in and a system where they keep making bigger and bigger TVs when you should just buy a projector if you want a big image. Also the fact that basically one company makes all the OLED screens and then sells those to other companies.

          Also, the wider color gamut of OLED and QLED is a meme. It's basically creating more color that does exist in the color data of the film you're watching and was never intended to be seen becuase theatre projectors and broadcast TV wasn't made for that.

            If you're buying 4K blurays these the video you're watching wasn't color corrected for or on theater projectors. They use OLEDs with HDR and 10-bit color.

    I bought a Alienware 2725df for $899. 2k, 360hz, Q-OLED, 27in. Highly reviewed. It's mostly for gaming and porn. I play CS2 at a high level so the 360hz is nice.

    OLED looks very nice in some games that utilize correctly, like Uncharted 4, especially with HDR. However I've yet to see a video really look amazing. Merely pretty good to great.

        >HDR just wasn't really made for movies
        Anything filmed before about 2016, yes. But contemporary movies and TV shows absolutely benefit from HDR. However, the filmmaking community has been slow in adopting HDR as rec709 was the standard for so many decades, the changeover in equipment and editing techniques has been resistant.

        I looked and no, not really. Mostly just wanted the OLED to make my 4k porn really POP. It really depends on the video, and studio. Some solo stuff is incredible and when Nathaly Cherie looks into the camera it's like she's really there. Kino. But then some videos just look like 1080p but slightly better.

    OLEDs are awful for movies cause of the inherent nature of the pixel tech. Enjoy your constant judder I guess. or if you use soap opera shit to compensate just go have a nice day. OLEDs are only good for games

      >OLEDs are only good for games
      'cept when the games are 30fps. and it isn't as if ~50fps and above is perfect, sample and hold blur is still everpresent, the quick response time doesnt do much to make it look better. OLED looks fantastic on a static image but the moment it starts moving it looks arguably worse than other avaialble display tech.

        True I should have specified high frame rate games. In general LED screens with good local dimming and lots of zones is in every way superior to OLED. Especially for HDR cause the highlights get so much brighter with respect to the rest of the image.

      "Rooting" a smart tv just means you connect a PC to it and maybe disconnect any wifi hardware it has. its not like with a phone where you want to install and run software on the phone. The TV is just a display.

          There's typically hardware switches somewhere on the TV or you can open it up and just disconnect them physically to be sure. These devices aren't very complicated. Phones are more annoying to de-spy because they're compact and the entire point is that they're networked devices with microphones and shit. That's why you need to install new OSs to make sure that they're not sending a bunch of shit off on them. Meanwhile opening them up is just a hassle because of how compact they're designed. A TV has like a power supply and a board the size of a dinner plate and then mostly just empty space with speakers and shit. the wires connecting everything are very visible.

      Depends on the OS, you can try uninstall all the base apps and see if that helps, or just get one of the dongle things. I have a firetv, works well enough for my plex, passthrough all audio and plays dv/hdr

      But if type of bloat is ad bloat and they force that shit on you so much nowadays, especially on the never tv's best to never connect the actual tv to the wifi and just get a dongle thing, i know my firetv played Amazon ads whenever you turned it on for abit but i turned that shit off real quick, fricking aids
