Nice price but as with most Argos deals none in stock near me and not available for home delivery...

In stock at Headrow Leeds. Is this HDR10?

Only comes with a 1 year warranty, whereas the likes of Richer Sounds, Crampton & Moore and John Lewis offer 5 or 6 years around the same price (sometimes needing a price match).
For example: Phone Crampton & Moore and they'll do this TV for £1,599 with a 5 year "no quibble" warranty.

Yep, that's my trigger price too. I need a TV, though, so it needs to happen soon!

My trigger price was £1700 on the C6. The price didn't drop and I took the plunge anyway, paying £100 more. Don't regret it for a second as the C6 is worth every penny.

Looks like they are clearing 'old' so not sure how low the price will go before they are all sold.

Very very tempted at this price. Available in all my local stores to collect in 3 days.

Can you let someone else claim the Sky Q offer? It's not worth the installation fee for me.

If you turn all of the processing settings off, the picture is pretty good. I always test TV's with some really low quality stuff, (4 music,) and my C6 does a good job; the image is clear of artefacts and the motion is good. There is a bit of detail missing in comparison to my Plasma, but it gets much closer than any LCD/LED TV I've seen.

HDR10 is a content format. This will accept HDR10 content and being an OLED has pretty good HDR display abilities, especially in darkened rooms.

John Lewis won't price match unfortunately, they said:

"Thank you for your email. Sadly, we are unable to include the use of the voucher code "TVS10".
Our Never Knowingly Undersold policy states;
"The competitor’s prices need to be publicly available to all customers. For us to verify these prices, they need to be displayed in the competitor’s own shop or on their website.

We do consider temporarily discounted prices, including any publicly available voucher codes that are published alongside the product at the point of purchase, or on the competitor’s website."

This voucher code is not publicly available on the competitor’s website meaning we are unable to match the price obtained with the use of this voucher code.

I appreciate that this is not the outcome you were hoping for and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me again"

If there is detail missing you need to get your TV calibrated

OLED > Plasma

Obviously the latest technology but still not great value for money. I'm happy to wait another 12 to 18 months for the price to come down.

Bought this Sunday and expected a collection Fast Track from 9am. Not arrived at the store. Took half a day off to collect this. Advisor said the item could be anywhere and had no idea. Was offered another 10% off any other TV (?) or reorder and see if one turns up in another four days time. AVOID.

I haven't the money for the C6 and the calibration as well Jayjay. I've used some of the calibrated settings on the forums but this results in strange results in low light. Dragons Den is a good example. It's only SD where a touch of detail is missing. When I had a LG LED a year ago for a week, strangely turning the super resolution setting to high gained a great deal of detail. On the C6, this setting seems to do nothing.

Apparently there is a firmware update out stateside that has corrected the issue and bought a game mode to the model. The EU update is apparently *imminent*. In game mode the input lag is reported to be around 30ms which is much more manageable.

Yeah, calibration is expensive. The forum settings are useless for me also, every set has slight differences but without greyscale calibration you will lose some detail, most people don't notice but clearly you have.

SD doesn't have a great amount of detail to begin with, and things like 'super resolution' just adds a false sharpness to the picture, so this maybe what you're seeing

hi there

just about the LG OLED55B6V 55Inch Ultra HD Smart OLED TV £1,574.10 Argos

where did u get the discount code from does it say anything about it on they website

I could have bought this very tv for £1500 last year in June direct from lg but was told no by my other half even after telling her it was £2800 in currys. Can still buy at that price now but will wait till June again to see what comes up this year. Although very tempted by new Samsung q7,8,9 series so be good to see prices on them. Personally would say don't buy this until the sammys come out as they will be around this price with potentially better visuals

How many times are you going to post this false info?

It's from AVForums, and is already proven incorrect, the help desk staff don't know apples from oranges

An example, they replied to someone else last night with this response

Thank you for your email query.

I have had a look into this further for you and on behalf of LG we would like to apologise for the delay in getting this update to yourself, we are aware LG US have this already and we are doing our very best to get this released as soon as possible.

We do have the update released on a couple of our TVs Adam however sadly as this TV has a complete different chip set it is taking a little longer then expected. I have no time frame unfortunately however I do hope this is released shortly.

Should you need any more assistance, you can reply to this email by clicking the additional questions link above the survey.

Thank you in advance.
Best Wishes,
Jason
LG Electronics UK Help desk "


I highlighted the part about the chipset, because the B6V has the exact same 'chipset' as the US B6P, so he hasn't a clue what he's talking about.

No point at all quoting anything from LG help desk, its just a call centre, they are useless for information on these type of queries.

As i mentioned in another thread, there are likely other fixes being applied at the same time
