I'm not a gamer, so OLED's greater vulnerability to burn in, compared to LCD, is not a factor in a buying decision for me. But since we watch a lot of large scale, widescreen movies, such as "Dunkirk", as well as much older large scale productions, such as "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Spartacus", we want the biggest flat panel screen that's available in the $4500 to $6500 price range. That means going with LCD.
Because while I certainly recognize the superior PQ of OLED tech over LCD Tech, LCD screens in the 82 inch to 85 inch range will simply provide a much more cinematic experience with large scale films than a 65 inch OLED screen is going to provide. Plus, in movies such as "Lawrence of Arabia", which consist of mostly brightly lit scenes, OLED's major advantage of having a superior black level, is mostly lost, while LCD's advantage in having a larger screen, is an advantage that's always present while watching any movie, because the larger screen's image takes up more of one's field of view, making that image more cinematic that it would be on a 65 inch OLED screen.
Long story short, for our 19 foot by 11 foot theater room, I'd much rather have a good 82 inch or 85 inch LCD, than a 65 inch OLED, even though, admittedly, the OLED would win any flat panel shoot-out against its LCD competition.
