LG is a quality brand no? therefor having a screen produced by them would be a benefit would it not? - hence the mention. potential buyers might be at ease knowing this...
Rather go for the Samsung at Reliant which is also cheaper

no because the processing makes up a substantial part of the picture quality, if this is running crap software then this affects things like motion handling etc

The way the image is processed and the way it handles motion can drastically affect how a TV looks, regardless of which panel it uses. That is something you should probably research before you commit to buying it.

That's also why there is a different between say, a LG OLED and a Sony OLED, even if they use the same panel.
Oh, beaten to it
i have voted hot btw as its very cheap

Correct. This tv's isnt for me I've got to admit, but for some it might be! i'm waiting for a more well known brand's oled tv to drop.

Technically true, but totally irrelevant in the context of large screen TVs.

Whilst Samsung are the largest manufacturer of OLED panels, they currently only produce small panels for use in phones etc.

i think you are right, at least for now (a quick Google suggests some Chinese manufacturers are now ramping up production)

i stand corrected

I'm sure the Chinese panel manufacturers are well aware how well received LG's OLED TVs have been and can't wait to be able to sell OLED panels to lower end TV brands wanting to cash in on the "OLED" name without having to buy an expensive panel from LG.

I mean, look at this deal; when a "no-name" brand buys an OLED panel from LG, they still end up charging a grand for the end product! I have no doubt that price will fall considerably when the panels are Chinese OLEDs rather than LG.
Avoid like the plague. A friend bought one for Xmas and is now sending it back. The panel is sub par and basic. You can't even turn off the soap opera effect. To top it off it was missing the aerial section. Save your money and buy a C7 or B7. That's what my friend did in the end.
