    I wasn't stating my opinion, I was stating a fact. There's Sony and then there's Sony ES (Elevated Standards). I suggest you go to the Sony website and research the difference.

    On my five year old Sammy plasma, when I change channels with the RC 71 it will show resolution if it changes.

    For Netflix, the info button on the Sammy remote will show the rate and resolution, but that is on my newer Sammies, the smart ones.

    How new are your Sammys? I have two Sammy 4Ks, one is two years old and the other a year old. Neither work as yours do. I can't figure out why they just stopped working as they did when I bought them.

    I realize everyone's opinions on TV sets are subjective. I did try several other sets, an LG and a Sony and a bunch of lower grade Samsungs. The LG had a color issue and my son bought a 1080p LG last year with the same color issue. He wants to buy an LG OLED and we're worried that will have the same issue. The Sony was awful, I didn't want to spend over 2 grand and, apparently, if you buy a lower grade Sony you really get a lesser set. I have issues with both 4K Sammys, but the PQ is superb (again, it's subjective) and that's what I care about.

    If you get an LG TV, be aware that out of the box (in my experience) they come preset to power-saving modes.

    This can make the picture look sort of "cartoony."

    The OLED came with 10 presets (any one of which other than power save "APS" looks better).

    I've found the best-looking (w/o modification) to be the two "isf" modes.

    Good luck.

    A sample of one is not worth the pixels used to show the written word. A sample of six is way better, though still not of a significant sample size to draw conclusions.

    That said, my six Samsung TVs have all been problem free.

    Yeah, I see little to complain about in my two Sammys. There are some things that could be better, but the PQ is what I'm most interested in. For the money, I don't think you can beat a Samsung TV.
