  • I've been on the lookout recently at that one caught my eye as the cheapest TV with HDMI 2.1 but it didn't get great reviews. Tt uses an IPS screen with poor contrast levels. LG's OLEDs are class leading but their LEDs are a good bit behind Sony and Samsung from what I've read. Haven't seen them in person though.

    I had only wanted to spend max 700 but it's very difficult to find anything in this range with HDMI 2.1 without massive compromises. Back to the drawing board!

    Yeah, I think I'm going to hold off for a while and try to go for oled down the road.

    I've blown my budget out of the water and gone for an LG 55CX, tips welcome from any CX owners out there:-)

    B9 owner. First tip is to unpack and set it up carefully. Second tip, remain calm while your eyeballs get blown away. Beautiful, gorgeous picture and the thing is so thin. Magic! Try RDR2 or Ori will of the wisps on it. Third tip, don't let anyone else near it. :) My big problem is that it's in the family room and I can't play what I want to play with the kids around. Thinking of putting the old 2008 Samsung back and moving this up to the attic room. I did get a 20 quid cover on Amazon to keep the dust, cats and kids off. :)

    More tips: have some proper 4K HDR content ready on eg YouTube to show it to the non believers.

    Thanks. I've been watching unboxing and setup videos to see what's ahead. It looks fantastic, can't wait to actually get to use it.




  • I've a c9 hooked up to a pc and a series X. It's an incredible set up for playing games. It's slot of money but I've never regretted for a second

    It was more than I intended spending but it's a long term investment I guess.




  • My tv is starting to glitch , it’s the xh90. Kind of feels like I’m lagging during warzone but I know it’s not my internet it’s different. Anyone have any ideas ? It’s set to 120hz on 4k, only noticed it starting to happen last night for some reason

    I can't say as I've still yet to get the xbox to go with my xh90 :(

    Did you mess with any settings to test? Knock it back to 60Hz, any better?

    Also make sure you are using the right cable. Ie one that came the series x and that it's not damaged.

    Was playing with a 4K hdmi splitter with a 1440p monitor. Ori was fine with it, but Forza Horizon 4 was slow, blanked out and in lower resolution.

    Also, had a slow Ethernet connection. Cable replaced and fine now.

    It’s only started happening 2 nights ago that’s what’s worrying me. I’ll give it a go though cheers

    Yes I’m using the hdmi cable that came with it. There’s just so many settings between the tv and Xbox I don’t know what works best




  • Anyone reckon there will be any discounts on 2020 models soon? Most manufactures have new models out shortly and don't want to buy now only for prices to drop in a few weeks. Also many of the new models seem to have micro-leds are other fancy **** (which I've no idea will improve anything :pac:)

    Most have been discounted for the last week or so over here (UK). I know the XH90 was down to £800 (I just checked Currys, £770), LG BX was £999 and even a Pana HZ980 I can see now for £940 (with discount code).

    Micro-LEDs will be the next big step but proper implementations for a "normal" price are still a couple of years off if what I've read is to be believed




  • Will micro LEDs be as good as OLED ?

    In other news energy usage labelling is changing in the EU, so that A rated 55 LG OLED will now be G rated. A++ etc being dropped and the scale now includes space for super energy efficient stuff to get the A rating. Also screen size and features such as HDR which is an energy hog being baked into the new system.




  • Reviews and comparisons for the 2021 TVs are starting to appear now. Looks like the LGs are still the ones to beat at the high end.



    However, Panasonic are also doing 48" OLED TVs this year. No idea on pricing yet though.

    I'm not sure they'll go pixel for pixel with OLED but a few thousand dimming zones and no chance of image retention/burn in will put them well above OLED in a lot of people's eyes.

    I've seen it with fridges only this week. My 2 month old A++ is now E rated. I can't say I'd ever even look at the rating for a telly, possibly better off too considering mine hits 1300+ nits :P




  • Series X and OLED TV still more energy efficient than alcoholism and divorce :):)




  • Ordered a new TV from Harvey Normans. LG CX48, which also planning to use as a monitor. No Series X yet though.

    Has anyone ordered stuff online from them before and know how long it takes to arrive. Item is in stock and in processing for last 3 days.

    I ordered on a Weds and was delivered the following Monday. That was the earliest they had a van coming my way. I did get a call the day after I ordered to tell me this.

    Thanks. They just got back to me. 1-3 days to get click and collect orders ready. And 5-12 days to get online orders ready :(

  • I went for a Samsung Q90T QLED last week for a few reasons.

    1) I wanted a 65 inche panel. I have been gaming for 6 years on a 55 inche LG but I really wanted to go up to a 65 inche. When you compare the deals on the Q90T versus the cost of a 65 inche CX OLED from LG, I just couldnt afford over 2200 on the LG.
    2) I have a young family who love to pause Sky, Disney+ and Netflix while they play, sometimes they could pause a show for 1-2 hours. I was not willing to take the risk on an OLED with the risks of burn in.

    I have to say, I dont regret my decision. Its a beautiful TV. There are unreal deals at the moment on 55 and 65 Q80T and Q90T QLEDS from Samsung. You can get a Q80T 65 inche for 1200 which is an absolute bargin given you will get a dedicated HDMI 2.1 port for 4K at 120FPS. The Q80T and Q90T are alot of TV for the price at the moment.

    Sure... in an ideal world where I was loaded, id have a 75 inche OLED CX or the new C1 but for practicality and cost, for me the QLED was the safer option.




  • My CX 48 from Harvey Normans arrived last week. Alas still no xbox 360. Working out well as a monitor on the dining room table while wfh. Used the settings from RTings. Really enjoying Netflix and Amazon prime video on it.




  • I’m still having issues with my xh90, warzone is pure jittery kind of feels like I’m lagging constantly even though it’s wired, Cold War is fine though! Also the built in Netflix app is bad quality even though I have the 4k Netflix sub, it’s very glitchy and can see shadows when watching anything on it. Any ideas ? I’ve messed around with setting etc but nothing changes. Harvey Norman claim it’s my internet!

    To be honest, it sounds like Game Mode or Low Latency mode is not enabled. Make sure you set it when the game starts just to see if that fixes your issues. I had the same issue with my old LG. Turned out one of my kids had changed the picture mode from Game to Eco and I was lagging all over the place until I set it back to Game.

    I always play on game mode when gaming. Then on Netflix , there’s a choice of cinema etc or Dolby bright/normal/vivid if the films Dolby vision. Nether of them make a difference. Is it a possibility that the tv is faulty ?

    It is doubtful to be honest. If it were me, I would be looking for a firmware update and then also resetting TV back to default settings. Then try again.




  • I've noticed Warzone graphical glitches a lot the last week or so and that's on a One X and an "old" 60Hz telly that has been fine for years.
    I've yet to get a SX to go with my XH90 but have been using it for Netflix and Now and it has impressed me tbh, I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do - it was bought almost exclusively for the (non existent) xbox

    Yes maybe it’s just warzone itself because like I said Cold War is fine. But Netflix is really bad tbh a still picture is great quality but as soon as there’s motion there’s shadows all over the place. It’s actually really annoying at this stage

    I did reset the tv to original settings and the series x also. That made no difference. And as far as I know all the updates have been applied

    Have you tried other games? It is possible that it is just Warzone that is affected?
