    Quoted from extraballingtmc:

    Checked cl, kijiji and fb for fun. Not much for used lg oleds, couple of 55” b6 , one with a dead pixel and one with a logo burn in. 300 and 800.

    It's true though if you're patient. I sold my second gen LG OLED (whatever model that was, B6 maybe) on CL when I bought my 85" 900F.

    Keep checking...one will pop up sooner rather than later. Definetly the cheapest/best way to get one. Love the 65". No doubt it is a better picture than the qled though.

    For anyone else that was screwed over by Samsung's refusal to confess manufacturing defect on the french-door fridge ice makers, I just found a private Facebook thread for owners with a bunch of accounts of people that have forced Samsung to make repairs (which probably won't work) and ultimately issue full refunds. (Also interesting stories about the shady-ass company Samsung hired to field warranty/repair calls for them, not something I'd expect an A-list company to do).

    I filed an e-complaint with the NJ BBB today to get the ball rolling. Glad the OP started this thread, otherwise I'd just have soldiered along defrosting my bust-ass icemaker every couple of weeks and hoping for a class action settlement.

    THANK YOU for posting this. I just took the heat gun to mine last night to defrost that stupid designed ice maker. I’m, about ready to do a Todd Tucky and throw the damm thing off my roof.
    I want to remain positive about Samsung because I have had good luck with there televisions , phones and washer and dryers BUT the more I hear how they are talking care of us refrigerator owners, it’s hard to give them any integrity.

    I recently purchased a French door Samsung and had it less the 4 months and the compressor went out on it. They did replace the compressor but it has left me feeling very uneasy about my purchase. I bought a Samsung refrigerator, stove, and dish washer because I thought at the time I was buying one of the best reliable appliances available, so it did disappoint me.

    For those claiming it isnt even a debate because "OLED iZ SupEriUr" obviously havent seen a high end qled, Q9 for example. They have come a LONG way. The true blacks on a Q9 are very close to oled and you never need to worry about burn in. Comparing a low end qled to a high end qled is not even close, and unfair in terms of comparing qled to oled.

    I don't worry about burn-in with my OLED. If I were buying a TV for a static display of the same image for days on end maybe I'd be concerned, but I just watch and play stuff on mine so this is a non-factor.

    I agree that if you're debating which technology is better it makes sense to compare the best to the best. I think most of the "which is better" articles do that, and generally come to the conclusion that on picture quality alone, QLED is very good and OLED is even better. There's nothing wrong with very good, but if you've got the scratch, why not get better? Of course if you want to save cash or watch in a brightly lit room (where you wouldn't perceive light leakage in dark scenes anyway and would benefit from the QLED's higher brightness capacity) QLED might be the way to go.

    Well said. My only point was that it isnt accurate for people to state its a night and day difference, when the high end qleds are very close to oled. My tipping point wasnt money, but rather the fact oled COULD burn in. Im a weirdo with that kind of stuff and know it would drive me bonkers if it did happen. Like you, it isnt like im setting there with a static image, but im just paranoid about that kind of thing.

    I just bought a new TV last week to replace a top of the line 60" Pioneer Elite KURO plasma. I've been itching for a new TV for a couple years. I loved the KURO, but the newest crop of TVs are so much brighter and have so much more "pop", especially when watching HDR content. My family room has a lot of windows, and was never an ideal viewing environment for a plasma. That's why I specifically stayed away from OLED when looking for a replacement set. I've had my eye on the 65" Sony Z9F Master Series for a while, and when they recently dropped the price from $3,500 to $1,799, I pounced. I have to say, I'm extremely happy with the new set. It's motion handling isn't as good as the KURO, but I find it to be a much more satisfying viewing experience overall. The black levels are great, and even the viewing angles are fairly impressive for an LCD. It's also nice being able to fit a 65" TV in the same space that my 60" occupied.

    Replaced my 55" led Samsung this weekend. Main issue was it was turning on and off frequently but it had other issues. It was around 7 years old so guess that's not too bad. I did by another Samsung because I thought it looked great for the price ($450). If it craps out soon then that's it for Samsung for me. QLED wasn't too much more but OLED was around 3x more. OLED does look pretty good but not sure it looks that much better. Unless you are serious about watching tv (I am not) I don't see the need to spend so much when you get pretty good bang for buck on the low end.

    I don't drive Hyundais or Kias and don't watch TV on a Samsung.

    It's Toyota and Sony for me.

    I like the Sharp Aqua series and have a 65" in my living room.
