Our conclusion: OLED or QLED?
If you are interested in top TVs like the LG C9 or the Samsung Q90R, you naturally ask yourself which TV is the better one. It is a fact that the burn-in factor cannot be taken into account for the C9, since burn-in is hardly a risk with normal usage, as intuitive technologies avoid it.
A simple comparison is difficult because we are dealing with different panels (OLED and VA) with different advantages and disadvantages. The Q90R is considerably brighter, but this results in slightly inaccurate color reproduction. This is highly recommended for very bright rooms with lots of windows, however, the viewing angle is limited. The C9, on the other hand, is better suited for dark rooms, as the black level of OLED TVs is always better. In addition, the viewing angle is much wider.
