OLED vs. QLED - LG Display Dismisses New Samsung QLED TV Technology: It's Still An LCD Panel : TECH : Tech Times

I'm getting confused now. I thought the TV to shop for would be "Ultra HD Premium (HDR) QLED" TV. I'm not so sure now. Maybe I'll wait until later this year to buy a replacement large screen TV.

Then again, this battle between LG (OLED) vs Samsung (QLED) should be good for the industry. It should result in improved TV technology and cheaper prices.
Samsung also makes OLED (mostly for small screen devices.

A Chinese company called Hisense just patented ULED. Their TV have amazing reviews on Amazon on AV forums.

I'm going to wait til March to see what Hisense has to offer for 2017.

I bought the KS8000 ultra UHD and it's totally worth it. Watch Youtube and Netflix makes it very enjoyable. I also build a 3.1 surround system to compliment the new tv. I bought the stuff slowly after doing some research of course.

From what I understand, the 4k TVs are rapidly approaching the point that the human eye can't distinguish any better color/resolution.

I've had my same surround sound system for almost 20 years. About time I upgraded that..
That's a very good point. Years ago I was in need of some stereo speakers, but didn't know what to buy. A friend referred me to a friend of his who sold stereo equipment. So I went in was looking at a couple of different speaker systems. The salesman-friend told me to turn my back to the stereo speaker section and just listen. I said I couldn't tell the difference between 2 particular speaker systems, one of which cost almost twice as much. He said that I should go cheaper then.
