@Joeynator3000 All of that is in the videos I posted. QLED does have certain benefits, but OLED beats it in pure picture quality. Long story short: price/value-wise, the LG C8 is THE best screen for gaming, regardless of what console you connect to it.

EDIT:
And needless to say, that the same goes for the LG C9, which is just the newer and even more improved model, so depending on what you're willing to spend, I'd go and check out these two models if I were you.

Currently, I'm still holding on to my Panasonic Viera plasma screen, but that one is about to die on me any time now, so I've got the LG C8/C9 on my own radar as well.

Get a 4k OLED. The next Nintendo will be 4k.

Yeah, only thing that I leave on is my monitor, only time my TV is static is if it's paused on a movie. Even then, after like...5 or 10 minutes the Bluray will go into screen-saver mode and then eventually turn off along with the TV itself.

As for SNES Classic and the borders, I dunno, but I don't play that much these days and not for that long anyways. Any other paused game it's not for that long, otherwise I would just turn the Switch off anyways. lol

The LG TV has a screensaver, when you pause TV, a streaming or a game it turns on. For static images (logos, etc.) the TV dims that area slightly.

@Woomy_NNYes @sdelfin That article is interesting. Image retention can occur in extreme cases and it's not definitive but temporary. In those extreme cases (done on purpose) if users still keep the same static image on for days or weeks definitive burn-in can occur. Thus, nothing to worry about if you use your TV normally at least on new models with automatic protection. That article says that the LG TVs also do the pixel refresh automatically.

@sixrings QLED is just Samsung's commercial name for LED.

Yeah I think QLED is just...brighter screens...or something...

I didn't know that LG's TVs could detect locations of static images and dim the specific area. Huh...so I shouldn't be too worried then...? But yeah C9 is what I have picked out right now, I know I shouldn't expect too much from Switch gameplay, but I'm still curious about 4K and OLEDs in general. Would be cool seeing all of my movies in that, I've already got a chance to see the first Transformers movie in 4K at Best Buy a few years back. xp

@Joeynator3000 LG C9 55" is the model that I bought and I honestly recommend it, if you get that model instead of 2008's C8 you're getting HDMI 2.1 that will likely be used by your next console. Also, C9 has a better chip than the C8 and the B9 so upscaling and algorithms for handling motion, films, etc. are better. B9 is the budget model and uses the 2008 chip. C9 is the best value.

In case you get a C9 like I did, these are the settings I selected for gaming:

Picture (Game user):
OLED Light: 70-100 (100 for more vivid image)
Contrast: 85
Brightness: 50
HDR Brightness: 47 (Because if you select 50 black becomes dark grey in HDR, this was a huge discovery!)
Sharpness: 10
Colour: 55
Tint: 0

Expert controls:
Dynamic contrast: off
Super resolution: off
Colour gamut: auto
Gamma: 2.2
White balance:
Colour temperature: medium
Method: 2 points
Point: high
Red: 0
Green: 0
Blue: 0

Colour management system:
Colour: red
Saturation: 0
Tint: 0
Luminance: 0
Peak brightness: off

Picture options:
Noise reduction: off
MPEG noise reduction: off
Smooth gradation: off
Black level: low for SDR; high for HDR (another important finding!)
Real cinema: off
Motion eye care: off
TruMotion: off
Energy saving: off

Additional settings:
Eye comfort mode: off
HDMI Ultra HD Colour: on
Instant game response: on

I watched Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV film (1080p) on it and I was really impressed but for some reason Transformers is the film that many reviewers use, I guess it's for the special effects and because it's 4K.

Something cool is that the TV remember devices and detects consoles automatically and also turns on and off HDR appropriately respecting your settings for each mode. I have read that older models were a bit messy handling HDR and inputs and one thing I love about C9 is that once you choose your preferences once it takes care of everything but you also can apply your settings to all inputs if you wish so. Also, all four HDMI are 2.1 and one of them is ARC, often used for audio/video receivers when you want to control the TV through another device.

Another cool thing is that the magic remote (Wii Remote ) even works for controlling the Xbox One menus using the buttons and because it has motion controls the screensaver turns off when you pick the remote up and before pressing any buttons.

The TVs have "profiles" or something for different settings, right? Just curious because I'll likely use it for 4K streaming as well, dunno why my dad said my internet may not be able to handle it, we have 150mbs. xD

@Joeynator3000 Yes, you have a lot of modes like Cinema, Standard, Vivid, etc. and then you can change the settings. So if you use Cinema mode for BD and change some settings they will be saved as Cinema user and same thing happens with each mode. This TV (like other modern TVs) remembers your devices and activates the appropriate mode and settings for each. It also has dedicated apps for streaming and even dedicated buttons like Netflix on the controller.

Well by profiles I meant like saving custom settings instead of using presets.

@Joeynator3000 I've seen several TVs that keep separate settings for each input. I would imagine that a higher-end TV like the OLEDs you're considering at least have different settings for each input, and possibly the ability to save profiles, but that's not something I can answer.

@Joeynator3000 @sdelfin Yes, you can, they will be called User1, User2, User3... You can create profiles based on any mode (Game, Standard, Cinema...). The TV remembers the last profile you selected for each input and device but you can save many profiles.

I have the LG OLED B8 thats has 22 ms of input lag that translates to 1 ms of inputlag in the real time.
It is almost unnoticeable and barely matters for many games. Even some older pro gaming monitors have this 1 ms in real life lagg.

It bought it because 1 I had no TV and 2 I was looking for a TV just like you now.
The 9 series have 13 ms of inputlag and that equals to 0 ms= no inputlag in real time.

I do not regret my purchase at all.

@Joeynator3000 I have a 4k TV but only my PC can actually make any use of it. Switch looks awesome running at 1080p on it.

Personally even the display 4K units in stores with videos set up to emphasize how "good" 4K looks have not convinced me that it's anything special. It only seems very slightly better than 1080p. And only with video or games directly made to show it off. Considering the enormous leap from CRTs to 720p and then the still impressive jump from 720 to 1080, the diminishing returns are getting very noticeable.

On the other hand, only 2HDMI is sad. I only have 3 and wish I had more. But every HDMI hub I buy runs into an error where occasionally the signal drops.

I'm able to tell the difference, I saw a movie being shown in 4K one time and it was pretty awesome. lol
As for gaming, it probably won't be too much of a difference with the Switch. But people are saying some games look a lot better on it, so we'll see.

I do think it should stop at 4K, but...we all know that's not happening, 8K is already a thing. Screw that. xD

Ah, sorry @Joeynator3000 I pasted a link to a Best Buy sale in a previous comment, but when I looked at the selection of 40-50" tv's, the selection is super weak. So.. sorry for the false alarm. I've seen better sales in the past. You can disregard the link. I may delete this next time to keep the thread clear of clutter

Eh, it's fine, I can't really buy it right now anyways. Gotta wait for the money to come in and stuff (my situation is complicated, just don't ask. xD), but yeah based on what I read and stuff I'm just gonna go for LG's 55" C9. Gonna have to get a wall mount for it, but at least it'll free up some space on my desk.
my whole room is basically getting an upgrade soon, lol

EDIT: Okay, you know what, I'm moving this to the general board now. Just, general 4K talk now. Also because I need a new chair as well, the whole Switch and 4K chat thing is done and over with.

That said, what kind of PC chairs do you guys have? I need something long lasting that will be used constantly, also comfortable. I see all these choices on Amazon and such and...I don't know what to get. >.<

TV? I bought an Optoma GT5600 projector and an Elite Screens Aeon CLR 100" screen. Playing Mario Kart with 4 players, it's like everyone has their own 50" screen. LOL. Looks absolutely amazing.

@SkullDragr No, the TV thing is already settled, he's asking about chairs now...

@Joeynator3000 HALP? Really?

As for a good gaming chair, needless to say that it also depends on how much you're willing to spend on it, after already having decided on a new TV, and besides that, it also depends on what you want from it (comfort, audio features, other extras, etcetera) but here's a review, going through some of the best of them:
https://www.gamesradar.com/best-gaming-chair/
And here's a second comparison review, for cross-reference purposes:
https://www.cnet.com/news/best-gaming-chairs-we-sat-in-for-20...

Or if you're looking for a more normal (instead of PC desk) chair type of thing:

And then there's also a whole other kind of special chairs, like the Wireless II SE from X Rocker:
https://www.amazon.com/Ace-Bayou-Wireless-Certified-Refurbish...

According to many reviews, the model called the X Rocker 5143601 II is the best one of the series, incorporating wireless audio and what not. Of course, chairs like these are basically only an option for living room settings or game room settings where the console and the screen aren't positioned on a PC-type desk, otherwise you'd be staring at the edge of the desk, or the underside of it...

By the way: X Rocker has a whole range of chairs, including both desk chairs and recliners, so you could also order directly from them:
https://xrockergaming.com/collections/gaming-chairs

Hope that helps. Good luck finding the right seat for your weary gaming bones...
