    Mods, I know this not the place to post non S3 topics, but I just wanted to share this with fellow posters who might be interested.

    Dougie's after Xmas pressie to himself....A Sony XBR 55" 4K UHD HDR Oled Telly and forgot to turn off a small light that is reflected on the screen. Amazing picture quality and after 100 hours of burn in I will calibrate it.

    Exterior definitely not, interior possibly. All they needed to do was some nice tweaks an extra 20 or bhp and they’d be laughing.

    Couldn't live with a oled in fear of the burn in plus l was in the market for 75 " or over screen oled too risky...so l got a Sammy 75 Q90r so l dont need to worry pausing Netflix and walking out the room for 10 minutes lol

    They're a good bit cheaper than they where a year ago mate but there is always a slight chance of screen burn but have a fantastic picture great for darker rooms though

    They have been on my radar for a few months now. Going to have a proper looksee when we can. My boy has a habit of pausing his and our main tv quite often so maybe not the best thing to go for at the moment lol

    Got a LG C8 77” two years ago and no burn in whatsoever ... incredible tv.

    Picked up a C10 48” over Xmas fir another room and equally impressed.

    only burn worry mate is if you leave for hours on end or game heavily with static logos ... neither of which I do.

    Bought mine from Richer sounds which comes with a free 6 year warranty, which includes cover for any burn in. If it’s going to happen it will certainly happen within the warranty period.

    Bedsides this was only an issue with the first generation of OLEDs anyway, new panels have been tested to over 100,000 hours without suffering any burn in.

    I was going for the Samsung QLED until I watched both sets playing side by side, it was like watching HD vs SD again.

    It’s not with the latest generation sets, so I wouldn’t worry about it.

    It's a ****** shame really . Going back 5-6 years ago the 8v forum was buzzing with excitement with new purchases.
    It was a good time on this forum. Had many a good laugh with some great people many gone but there are still some left on here.:chuncky:

    Hopefully the ‘buzz’ will come back with the face lift when the myriad of issues / dislikes are addressed.

    As for tv’s mate, I’m firmly in the oled camp but the Samsung Qled’s are superb too, particularly if you are a gamer or are putting the tv in a bright room.

    Will have a look at the Samsung. Cheers buddy:thumbs up:
    The main gripes on the 8v forum from memory were the water pump and haldex issues.
    Seems the main issues from the get go on the 8y are electrical. Like you said hopefully they will sort them out soon??

    I also read Samsung are dropping QLED in favour of a new tech called mini led in an effort to compete with OLED, as they are aware themselves there is no comparison.

    I am a home cinema buff myself, I am running a lot of similar kit to yourself in my home cinema room, but I run KEF speakers.

    My OLED looks really well mounted to the wall, the 2020 model I bought is about as thick as a sheet of paper, its crazy.

    I run a NAS system for all my movies, they are all full 4k .mkv formatted files.

    Some tasty kit you have there @jassyo06 :icon thumright:
    and you too @Chris4410 :icon thumright:

    I'm similar to you both and have a cinema sound set up in the front room with amp & B&W speakers / sub.
    As you say Chris, when mounted on the wall, the OLED's look superb - if anything that is the worrying part wall mounting as the screens are so thin :)
    I've also got a 4k blu ray player and nvidia shield and agree top line 4k material looks incredible.
    I bought the LG C8 just over 2 years ago and it still impresses me today which is testament to just how good these tv's are.
    The 48" C10 I bought just before Christmas is fantastic too.
    We have one room in the house which does get a lot of light so planning to get a new Samsung for that at some point.

    Looks like we all share an interest in cars as well as tv's :sunglasses:

    The Red Rel T9i is a limited Ed subwoofer painted in Ferrari Rosso Corsa with Carbon bits....ye know me and colours am a sucker lol l think it was the 77 C9 l was going to get in late 2019 but the one connect box on the Sammy sold it for me....OLED v QLED just like Mercedes v Audi lol
    but in my honest opinion streaming comes nowhere close to Physical media ie disc for pq and sound quality
