Its OLED & Ambilight or OLED & HDMI2.1 and for me ambilight wins

OLED is most definitely one of those technologies that you have to see in person, its game changing. Watching a clip of stranger things and seeing winona ryder hold a torch that was real life bright against oerfect blacks felt like looking through a window it was so realistic.
But anyway, i digress, your reading this because you want to know about this particular tv vd other OLED offerings, so a pros and cons list is probably the easiest way to do this.
- OLED oanel is an LG panel and the processing is excellent so loses nothing in the way of visual fidelity next to the competition.
- Design is sleek and minimalistic, with nothing to distract you from the your viewing experience
- Plenty of inputs
-Ambilight, once you've had it, you cant go back
- No HDMI 2.1 so no support for VRR when that inevitably lands next year in ps5 and xbox scarlett (if you dont know what this is then it probably doesnt matter for you)
-Saphi interface whilst compitent feels dated
-Remote doesn't have keyboard on the back which could be a good or bad thing depends on your perspective
- Tv legs design mean the bottom of the tv will be near flush to the tv stand so soundbar placement could be a problem
- remote isnt backlit, save for the ambilight button
Thats all tv specific things i can think of, personally for the price and what you get i think its a winner, i use an external android tv box so for me the only missing feature is no hdmi 2.1 meaning a lack of vrr support so i rate it a 4.7/5
If i could distill this down id say you're likely looking at this or an LG OLED in which case your choices are OLED & Ambilight or OLED & HDMI2.1 and for me ambilight wins everytime
