@jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (35 minutes ago)
I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (3 Hours ago)
When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (3 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (3 Hours ago)
Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (8 Hours ago)
This is also the first Battlefield game that won't have expansions, which is something consumers asked for. (8 Hours ago)
It's not really the case where more content is always better. The quality of the content is important. (8 Hours ago)
