    Yup, I have used that site regularly since 2015. If I bought one it would have to be from Costco. Easy to return there. I have looked at OLEDs many times and I looked at the LG I bought in the store and it looked really good there. Got it home and saw red wasn't really red and returned it. Fast forward to Black Friday that year and I'm standing in a line in a Target and there are 4K LG sets and 1080p LG sets on the walls (did not see any OLEDs) and they all had that off-red thing going on.

    There is no comparison (or relation) between an LG LED and an LG OLED - two VERY different TV's. If I were in the market for a non OLED TV, it would not be an LG.

    The one I bought (have no idea what model) wasn't cheap. Almost two grand. Sure didn't make me run out and try another LG product.

    Exactly - their non OLED TV's a over priced for sure. As for a brand I would consider, that would depend on the room and where I would be sitting. If I'm a reasonable distance away and looking straight at it (no tilt or angle at all), most decently rated LED's would do. Then it becomes a matter of price.

    An OLED doesn't have line of sight issues, so now the comparison is the engine driving the panel. My understanding is nearly all OLED panels are manufactured by LG - even the ones in a Sony OLED. And, yes, you'll pay more for an OLED - but it's worth it if you can do it.

    I know this is off-topic (discussing TVs in the TV show talk forum).

    Couldn't be happier with my LG OLED. Panel itself is no thicker than a standard pane of glass. Colors and black levels are excellent. UHD (and passive 3D) work better than I would've expected before purchase. (2016 model purchased in 2017.)

    But I'd warn (as with the LG plasma) that the "out-of-the-box" setting is "Eco" and needs to be changed before using.

    OLED has two "isf" presets that work well without any more tweaking. Beyond that I only had to activate "deep color" for the input of the UHD player (and that did need a little tweaking initially for HDR).

    Ahh, but have you seen See, Delroy? Put that on your OLED. I watched the next two episodes last night and it just gets better. Lots of outdoor shots (See was shot in Vancouver) and the PQ was great.

    I have finished SEE as far as I could. The cinematography is terrific. I agree the show is getting better. Less grunting..

    See just keeps getting better. Sounds like you are, too.
