That lot went straight over my head lol I'm quite content to just have a decent picture. I totally see where you lot are coming from though. Having a home cinema set up and being able to have it to the max must be awesome.:rockwoot:

Without starting the old manual vs auto debate lol would you go back to manual. Personally I can't find myself going back. I've had three A3's now and all have been DSG. A great combo I think with the way traffic is these days.
Can't believe I said three A3's:hopelessness: It's actually four. I keep forgetting my S3 is an A3....That's a lot of three's and a four no wonder I was confused :scared2: lol
I have actually now had 12 VAG cars since 2005... I must be blinking mad ha ha:blink:

My advice is wait until you can go back to a shop and watch the same content side by side. Then make your decision.

I went to the shop with the full intention of buying a Samsung QLED set, I even knew the exact model I was after.

That was until I watched a 4k movie on both sets playing side by side, at this point there was no contest.

Even my wife who has absolutely zero interest in tech and picture quality, asked why the picture on the QLED was so bad compared to the OLED

Started with nothing & still have most of it left.
Are we talking about the Astra:whistle2: lol

@Jcbmally Hope you don't mind us going slightly off topic on your thread. lol

Actually
Thinking of audis
I feel all audis including the S3 have the best tail lights through the complete range
Closely followed by all new BMWs especially the 2 series
So there are some good things going on in the design department at least
So not all bad in my eyes

Just catching up....no worries on burn on new model OLED telly, unless as previously pointed out with gaming static picture left on for an hour or more.
My new Sony Oled HDI UHD XBR 55 A8H delivers a stunning picture even better than my old Plasma which was pretty damn good
Major benefits..blacks to die for...view from any angle ( LCD can not do this) .....best picture quality.
4 more days to go of burn in(150 hours) and then I will fully calibrate it.

Great to see some of the old gang back with their humour and insights.

I actually like the way Seat have the rear lights set up on the new Leon. Looks great at night.:yes:

I’m a big fan of the lights. It’s one of the things I really like about the car: though more-so the matrix lights with the razor slit DRL eyebrows.
The Matrix lights are great but expensive not a fan of the 8y rear tail lights they look a bit aneamic and lost compared to the size of the rear
Gone are the little details between the rear lights as the 3,4,5 door 8v variants all had different tail light design/shape
The 8v FL 4 and 5 door cars also had different designs/shape

I think either the Edition 1 or the S -line A3 models are the pick of range with the 150 bhp engine.....go further up the range forget it

I have to correct you on viewing Angles my friend the award winning Samsung Q90R picture can seen from any angle and when it comes HDR and picture pop un beaten in this dept My ideal set would have been a 77" Sony OLED AG9 but l wasn't willing to pay £5k-£6k for a TV Sony's picture processing is the best in the Oled market horses for courses as they say

just to muddy the waters slightly (lol)

a lot also depends on the shop setting up both tv’s accurately as ‘out of the box’ picture quality tends to need tweaking to get the best picture - some more than others, especially the Samsung’s imo.

But get them both running at their best and I don’t think you’ll go wrong with any of the high end Samsung’s (Q 80 or above) or any of the oled’s be it LG, Sony or Pana.

Imo oled definitely has the edge though. The blacks cannot be beat and the image is very natural whilst still giving amazing hdr pop.

Are you 100% sure on the viewing angle mate. There is zero drop off with the oleds. I know Samsung have made a lot of progress to address this issue on the qled’s but I’m not convinced there’s no drop off at all ?
If you view straight on its an irrelevance anyway.
Hdr pop agree, that is the Sammy’s trump card but the oleds are still amazing. I prefer the LG operating system over the Sony which is the reason I went that route.

like I say either option great ... most important thing is to get a good panel !!!

Unfortunately where I live all the independent tech shops have long gone. All that's left is PC World/Currys. From experience they don't seem bothered in setting up a system to it's full potential plus the staff hardly know what's what. lol
I will definitely consider an OLED tv though.:icon thumright:

The good thing with Curry’s / John Lewis etc, is that you can try the TVs and if you don’t like them send it back and get something else.

The 4k Samsung I have now has terrible judder if you are watching something like footy. Will certainly look out for this with a new one.
