    I'm still struggling to committing to OLED over LED size/price. However a friend just got a new 55 OLED Sony TV.

    He did mention OLED TV's seem more delicate than the LED ones.

    As in the frame seems less robust the surface seems less robust. I have a 4 year old and a 6 year old. He has a 6 and a 8 year old.

    the build of the tv has naught to do with the tech driving it.

    Structure wise i guess these days they have become more minimal so perhaps more inclined to damage if you treat them badly, but treat them with care and there's no issue really.

    If you can't control your kids, don't buy nice things (that is, you lose)

    More worried about my wife. Apparently its not appropriate for me to control her.

    Just curious, seems to be lots of complaints about OLED breaking..

    Some reviews report frame cracks straight out of the box.

    Im just curious if this is a OLED thing or simply a new TV thing, as the new TV's seem to have thinner bezels and supports and more flimsy.

    Larger displays, thinner bezels. Not really surprising.

    I can't see the current standard of stands and mounts working for long either. At some point more robust wall hanging standards will have to happen.

    Just in time as I’m due for a upgrade (gpu wise) shortly and will be doing a new build in the Lian Li 011 XL. If 4K HDR gaming looks as good as it does on YouTube from the likes of hardware unboxed and digital foundry I’m sold lol. Because it looks phenomenal on the OLED especially GOW5 from what I saw from HWU
