Don't worry about that. It's a measurable difference in brightness between LCD and OLED (which reviewers harp on about) but nothing that you will make out in normal scenarios. I have a panorama window behind me when watching TV and it's plenty bright enough.

Until Mini/Micro LED becomes feasible and mainstream I'd say OLED is the king of panels.

Technically speaking, if you had a panorama window, wouldn't that also be on the sides and in front of you when watching the TV? Sounds like what you got is a window 😁

Sides yes, front into another room with light, so point still stands but for the word behind.

Are any of the TV deals on Amazon for Prime day actually a good deal? 

I need a new TV but have no idea where to start nowadays. 

Depends what you are after and what it's for. Just general tv watching, gaming, watching through Sky Q, Virgin or BT......and then there's what size?

This has a good spec and at a good price at £679

(look back a couple of pages and see that @blandy is happy with his)

 

Philips Ambilight 65PUS8545/12 65-Inch LED TV (4K UHD, P5 Engine, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, HDR 10+, Freeview Play, Compatible with Alexa, Android TV)

Just want a basic smart TV to watch stuff on. 

Not sure we'd need 65 inches but will take a look. Thanks

Looking to spend about 700£ on tv to be mainly used for ps5 and watching football and movies, I love the idea of the ambilight, don’t wthink I’d get the best use of of Ps5 on it though?

U can get the 55 CX for £900 at Costco I believe. If you can stretch then it’s genuinely the best tv for the ps5

That's what I've got and can vouch for it being a stunning TV, not just for gaming but viewing too.  With Dolby Vision and Atmos built in, things like Netflix and Prime Video are 1st class.
