I seen a lot of hype around the QD-OLED TV’s so it was good to read a balanced, sensible review and take on the new tech. I’m interested but will wait and see how this compares to the Panasonic LZ2000.

It is perhaps not surprising that there is only an incremental improvement in brightness since, although QD-OLED panels do not suffer the light loss of OLEDs filters, it is still fundamentally lit by an OLED panel. Having said that, LG have slowly improved their OLED panels over the last decade. To match their best performance with the first generation of QD-OLEDs suggests there may be more to come from this technology.

I want to upgrade to the A95K from my LG B9 - can anyone explain clearly why the G2 is recommended over the A95K for pc gaming? I don't play online competitive games - I've tried to find out if A95k has a pc mode. Does the A95K support 4:4:4 Chroma? I'm fine with two 2.1 hdmi ports as I bought an 2.1 hdmi switcher to go between my PS5 and PC. Hope all that makes sense - appreciate any advice!

From my knowledge , the main reasons y the A95K is behind on gaming features
- No freesync or g sync , just forum vrr . So you Won’t be getting the best out off vrr on a top gaming pc

- No software solution for vrr flicker (this happens in all TVs but is more noticeable on OLEDs .Lg and now Panasonic seem to have software level remedies - debatable how effective they are but at least there’s something .

- No HGIG so there can be clipping of detail . HDTVTEST has a good explanation on y Sony TVs auto hdr for ps5 feature isn’t ideal .

- as far as chroma subsampling not sure anyone knows yet . Best to find out if the S95B and AlienwareQD OLED do 444 , which if I remember properly they do . 444 won’t affect you on the ps5 and even on the pc , you’re only going to know it on coloured texts on coloured backgrounds .

The A95K seems to be lagging a bit behind on gaming features but most reviews just assume sony has all the features . One of the reasons y I’m struggling to pick between the A95K and pansonic LZ2000. Hope this helps

Thanks for your advice - much appreciated. Still tempted - its a shame the S95B doesn't support DV for blu rays :)
yep Samsung’s lack of DV, build quality and just general ways of doing things have put me off . I had a Samsung plasma back in the day and was very happy with it . Never imagined being staunchly against going Samsung (more power to those who like their TVs , just not what I look for ). Still between the pansonic and Sony , though the G2 looks impressive and is catching my intrigue the more I hear of it
