    Thanks man, I won’t clog up this thread unless others are interested. Tv would be a mix bag not a full gaming tv.
    I’ll send you a pm after doing some extra research.

    I'm almost four years in on my OLED TV which has had an equal mix of video games and sports TV and have no permanent burn-in. I see temporary burn-in when screens or shapes are in a static state for a while but it always goes away. By far the best TV I have ever owned.

    Best Buy has the last years PX75 (looks to be refurbished) for 2,000 which is a Pretty good price. Maybe invest in a warranty for that one but that’s a lot of TV for the price.

    If you need something soon and can’t wait for the 2020’s not a bad option.

    I’ve kindof fallen in love the the LG GX77 but price is eye watering. I’m hoping they end up overstocked and on a heavy clearance somewhere ( could live with paying 4-5000 for one).

    LG thinks I'm loaded since they keep advertising the new OLED GX design art series to me everywhere. And God damn does it look nice!

    Surprised no one has mentioned the mass market transparent TV from Xiamoi. Roughly about $10k here.

    It’s because it sucks. Go look at the YouTube video demo of it not the stuff they’re posting. There is no black in the image so you need to watch it in a pitch black room, which is stupid because with it off you want it in a well lit room haha.



    Every demo has people using as much black background as possible. Look how bad the image quality looks on anything that’s not black.

    In other sad news, it looks like Vizio pulled out of the Canadian market. If that’s the case, I’m not looking forward to finding a 85” TV. The best competitor to Vizio Quantum X is the $5k Sony 950H, and it only compares to the P series non X.

    Costco and Best Buy has no more Vizio products. Not even sound bars. Vizio Canada sites shows zero places for where to buy.

    @rage2 What do you think the reason is? Poor sales figures?

    My guess is they were so delayed getting their TV’s to US market it’s not worth certifying anything back to Canada this year.

    Try again next year and hope their brand recognition isn’t toast.

    I have no idea. It’s a comment on Facebook from their social media person, but they never announced anything. All signs point to it tho. Fucking bummer. Sucks because there is nothing that competes with it regardless of size if you like HDR.

    Since no more Vizio, waiting for Costco to get those new 2020 TCL 5/6 series with the micro LEDs.

    Best Buy has them currently for sale with October arrival IIRC. RFD threads show this is the 2020 budget bang for buck TV to get

    I think I’m settling on the Sony. No other options in 80”+ sizes and I hate Sony. Looked at Samsung and the lack of Dolby vision sealed its fate as the Xbox series features Dolby vision gaming. Worked out a deal at $4400 if anyone’s looking for one.

    What model did you end up with?

    I’m pretty pissed off about the Vizio. But I am also pretty set on getting a new tv for this winter.

    Hoping for 70-75.

    @4400 I would have just gone OLED.

    85" @ $4400 : https://www.visions.ca/product-detai...sku=XBR85X950H

    I looked at OLED as well, they could do the 77" @ $5300 : https://www.visions.ca/product-detai...0&sku=OLED77CX

    The highlights on the 950X isn't Vizio PQX levels, but it's not bad. What options do we have really without Vizio in the game? OLED wise, I mean sure great black levels, but I want that HDR pop that OLED really can't do. Losing 7" and paying $900 more is a tough pill to swallow.

    Fuck. 5300 for the OLED is hella tempting.

    I can’t fit bigger than 77 anyway.

    This the same TV in 75? Concerned about lack of VRR.

    I have debated those exact two sets going to go with The 77” LG when it hits 5,000 or on Black Friday.

    The opposite for me I’m a Sony fan but not this time.

    Decision was largely weight driven as I have to mount it and pull it out past my built ins so don’t want it pulling out.

    The B9 hit $5000 once during super bowl week this year. Not sure if that’ll happen again next year. Note that the B9 is the cheaper version of the C9 although both TVs are nearly identical. The CX is the successor to the C9 so you may never see it drop to $5k. The lowest the C9 has ever dropped is $6k. Might be a long wait.

    The real difference is blooming vs highlights. You’ll have minor blooming for some extreme scenes on the Sony (dark scenes with highlights), but in most scenes the Sony will have a better HDR image with brighter highlights popping the image while OLED will aggressively dim scenes with many highlights to preserve panel life. Which means in most cases the Sony will look better. If you’re bothered by any blooming, then OLED is the way to go. You care about highlights, Sony.

    Video games tho, if you’re a competitive player, you can’t beat OLED.

    Anyone have a recommendation for a 48-53 inch? Mom’s tv crapped out we’re looking for a decent replacement. It’s going up on her mantle and that’s the size that would fit. I had Vizio in mind based on past comments on this thread but I guess that’s not an option anymore.
