Thread: OLED vs. 4K

    OLED vs. 4K

    Hello everyone
    I'm currently searching for a new television. Other than watching TV, It'll be used for gaming as well - PC gaming... So my question is whether I should go with a OLED 1080p or a 4K LED?

    If you want to use a TV for PC gaming, expect a noticeable amount of display lag which could make some games rather unplayable. You’ll probably want to go for a Samsung, as those seem to have the lowest rates of display lag across the board for their current-year models while running in PC mode. OLED has great color reproduction for gaming, but those displays are a bit pricey compared to what you could spend today to get a good 4K LED TV

    One year ago, I bought a 4K Sony XBR55850B television because the LG OLED was about $1,000 more for a 1080p of the same size. The Sony has amazing picture quality and great latency – especially in gaming mode – but oh how I WISH I had sprung for the OLED. Now, one year later, the OLED have come down even further in price making them comparable to what I spent on the 4K. No amount of local dimming and other features can reach the level of contrast that OLED gives you with per-pixel lighting. I’ve tweaked my TV to hell and back, but very dark scenes still have a grey wash to them due to the LED backlight. Once I pay off this TV (thank goodness for 0% financing), I fully intend to sell it and get an OLED instead. It makes a world of difference, especially for movies and television.

    I also thought I should mention that
    (a) there is still very little true 4K content available.
    (b) 4K only matters at certain screen sizes at fixed distances. The bigger the screen and the closer you sit, the more valuable the increased pixel density becomes.

    OLED will burn in with games; I’d never buy an OLED TV for gaming.
    LCD for gaming; there’s really no other option. I personally have plasma in my living room and while I don’t have any permanent burn-in (because I’m very careful), I often get image retention that lasts for weeks. OLED is the same. I have two LCD’s upstairs and both are obviously fine after years of gaming on them. I do have plenty of experience with AMOLED phones and all have experienced permanent burn-in.
