It may not be OLED but it's great quality for the price.
Like many others, this was a Prime Day 2017 purchase. I was lucky as my old 2011 LG 42" had just bit the dust for the second time, and I was in need of a relatively cheap replacement. I was also lucky because my AV Receiver is also a Sony, which features the Bravia Sync feature advertised by this TV. This means the receiver accepts commands over HDMI, and being another Sony product it worked like a charm as soon as I hooked it up. This allowed us to ditch the (hilariously overcomplicated) receiver remote and use the (much simpler) TV remote for all of our activities.
When I saw that Android TV was built-in I was hesitant since my old LG also had built-in apps which could only be described as molasses-in-winter slow. Well, I set up the TV using my Android phone (way cool) and let the TV perform its firmware update, then gave Android TV a shot. People, it's FAST. We are cord-cutters and use Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Video exclusively for TV-watching and these apps all load WAY faster than the old LG, and also significantly faster than the Chromecast or PS3. The remote even has a giant NETFLIX button, so if you have trouble navigating menus that's a plus.
