First Post so be gentle.

I know everybody's feelings about the 'QLED' name, and you're right to feel that way. Still, this is a decent looking panel and a pretty nice price compared to where it was recently and where the lesser TV's were too.

I can't speak for the vendor tho. Those of you who have had experience please chime in.

When I was looking for LG OLED TVs, I kept seeing Samsung advertise their Quantum dot LED and something about as good or better than OLED....but I wasn't buying that marketing. Are they going to finally start making OLED TVs? I'm surprised why not since they make mobile oled panels.

LG owns the patent. Sony buys LG panels. Unless Samsung buys panels from LG, they are going to be behind for awhile

Right. Make no mistake, this is NOT an OLED TV. It is an lcd panel.

However, it does have the Quantum dot tech (thus the Q) which dies make a noticeable difference in picture quality. Deeper blacks and such. The accepted wisdom is that it's not quite so good as a real OLED, but I don't have any firsthand experience on that. I do know that it makes it much better than a traditional lcd panel.

It also takes brightness to another level ,I believe it can get upwards to 1500 nits. Which should make HDR movies jump off screen. Seeing that this can be sold for 1799.99 by the vendor. I am hoping that OLED will drop near that price since they are reaching 2100 for the 65 inch. Once HDMI 2.2 gets in next years TV's, these prices will have to fall 120hz panels for all lol.

I wouldn't touch the 2017 Samsung panels until reaching 50% of OLED price. Other than color volume (which is insignificantly higher than competing flagship LEDS and OLED) and supposed peak brightness (that fails to meet stated specs based on a number of professional reviews--so the claim is suspect), Samsung's stubborn insistence of using edge lighting and crappy local dimming, and refusal to add Dolby Vision HDR (and then charging consumers a premium for the privilege of no DV) makes the 2017 models inferior to their 2016 models in almost all practical ways, and massively overpriced relative to superior competitor options. There is a reason Samsung's market share of the premium TV market dropped from over 60% in 2015 to less than 15% in 2017. Their TVS are in many ways worse than prior iterations, and their prices increasingly non competitive. You won't see an OLED TV from Samsung anytime soon. But perhaps, since they've finally publicly acknowledged their incompetence...errr.. missteps, they'll stop the marketing shenanigans and actually develop the promising "micro" LED technology (the original QLED before Samsung muddied the waters by calling their crappy 2017 models QLED). Let's hope. Because having one OLED manufacturer isn't a good thing for consumers in the long run. A competing technology that actually stands up to OLED would be good for us all.
