but really, we are splitting hairs here between Sony, LG, Panasonic...
This is so true, majority of people can just go in the store, buy a whatever Oled or Qled from whatever brand and when they turn it on at home be like "oh, wow this is great and be very happy with it".

BTW a side node, QLED is actually a LCD screen and not OLED. Samsungs marketing came up with that name to... well fool people

That's only a problem if you feel the need to upgrade every time a model with new features comes out (like some people feel they need to do with their iPhones, for example).

Otherwise, not sure what you really mean by out-of-date. It doesn't mean obsolete or unusable in this case.

You could, for example, still use a TV produced 20 years ago with a HDMI to SCART converter.
I Have an iPhone 7

You won't be watching 1920 x 1080 on a 20 year old screen & it will be pretty small, probably Standard Definition. Probably cost 10k at the time with an actual dynamic range of 400:1 if you were lucky.

Dynamic Range is always amusing, easiest way to test is with a chess board pattern on the screen & a spot meter, for the spec black is measured with the set turned off & the brightest white they can feed

Re: Sony OLED KD-55AG9

Bought a Sony 75' 3D TV in 2013. It is still running fine. Only complaint is that it is a bit too bulky. But no other complaint.
As long as it works, see no reason to upgrade.
That said, LG is supposed to be the gold standard for OLED so you can't go wrong there.
And chasing the latest features will only mean spending lots of money. At the end of the day, I am not sure it makes such a big difference. But maybe I have not seen how awesome OLED is actually....

Re: Sony OLED KD-55AG9

Hello again,

I just wanted to thank everyone for their personal observations and comments. Based on some of the comments I went back and researched some more details which has helped with my final choice.

The LG-C9 and Sony AG9 are both, very good OLED's with very few differences that are relevant for me.

For example HDMI 2.1, (LG) vs 2.0, (Sony) just to name one.

Good article:

https://www.digitaltrends.com/home-t...ow-news-specs/

The many C9 vs AG9 reviews go into such detail with regards to colour, contrast, brightness, burn in, etc. that for my eyes, either one will be fine.

I do watch very late night, (early dark 30) ice hockey live streaming NHL and AHL, (my son plays for the CBJ farm team) so the sport / motion is an important criteria for me. Here, I believe the Sony nudges the LG out.

Having Sony peripherals, sound bar, PS etc. and trying to keep the number of remotes to a minimum, (keeping partner happy) I will be buying the AG9.

Thank again for sharing your experiences and opinions.

Stay healthy all!

Regards,

Marus
