It is a good price relative to others but considering it was obtainable for £1150 with a bit of swindling around for the superior (technically) but not for everyone E version months ago this has to be cold on principle.

Nice of LG to have RRP of £2500 for the new C8 series.

At least the 77 inch model at £8000 Looks more appealing vs £20000 launch of previous 77 inch oleds

Chuck in 7% discount on Currys vouchers and the 500 cashback starting on 2nd Mat and you are talking £6900....disgusting but less nauseating than paying £1400 for last year's stock.

The stand and the surround is a different colour (silver on B7 and black on C7) as far as I know
So so tempted, just another£100 to go..

I tried this and they wouldn't. They said Samsung have put the price of this model up for retailers. Which might explain why they have all gone up. On the other hand it could be so the offer seems better when the World Cup and clearance for the new range sales start.

It is relevant though, I certainly wouldn't be forking out that kind of money for a TV when there's a new model out next month and it's been much cheaper previously.

I haven't voted on this as I think it's a poor price but I can't see it cheaper anywhere else currently. My advice would be to not buy a TV right now, as previously mentioned in the thread the World Cup may see some promotions, failing that Black Friday is your best bet.

This Tv went down to £1,350 during last years black Friday. A big saving of £49!

Comparing this TV to the E7 that a small number of people were able to get through a john lewis price match with a £500 cashback promo from LG is not relevant. It didn't take long for John Lewis to catch on to it and it's extremely unlikely to happen again.

Last year these TVs sold out before they went any cheaper. Wait to the world cup and you could end up paying full price for the 2018 version.

Got a source of the £500 cashbaxk Deal starting?
I guess cold because richer sounds won't price match and that site only has the manufacturer's 1 year warranty?
Some are saying this TV is £1470 in Costco so you can pick it up. Not a member so not sure.

It's on LG cashback website.
John Lewis have exclusive on it until 2nd May.
Then all authorized retailers are eligible to offer it.
It states this on the site and amounts for each model.
The £500 cashback isn't on this model on JL though, which is suspect, it's on the E7 model (I don't know the difference) which is priced at £2500 for 55 inch

Might as well wait a few months for the 2018 QE55Q9FN to drop to a couple of grand instead,

The OLED zealots will of course scream heresy but every reviewer who has got their hands on this year's Q9 has been purring about it, What hi-fi and that Ced from Trusted Reviews have both been ridiculously complimentary about it.
Jeez £3000 that's over twice the price of the B7! Can it really be much better?
Waiting for a nice drop on the C7. I’m hoping that’ll be soon with the World Cup and new models releasing within months

The latest releases are always them sort of prices, this time next year that 3 grand will have dropped to half the price.

I really don't dig Lucky Goldstar at all so don't follow news about them or OLED in general but even I have kept coming across hype/propaganda/call it whatever that this year's medium to flagship models feature some significantly superior processor bla bla bla.

Whether you deem it worth the much greater outlay is down to the individual.

Not sure what exact model you reckon sold out but no manufacturer totally stops production of a high selling item mid cycle, might slow it down a bit hence prices do tend to keep dropping steadily over the course of the year.

I been eye-balling the 55" Q7 or Q8 for our bedroom since last summer, the prices have finally dropped to what I deemed my biting point but things have changed big time.

I've nearly pulled the trigger 3 or 4 times over the last month but with each passing week more details have surfaced about this year's range and now a few reviews too. The Q9 clearly is much more superior to anything from last year, to the point that even pro OLED members of the tech media are raving about it.

Will I weigh on the full release price of 3 grand for it?

Absolutely not!

I wouldn't weigh on 3800 quid for the 65 incher either but were it to drop to around 2 n half come Black Friday it's possible I would bite and end up moving the 65" XE9005 we bought about a year ago up to the bedroom.

In the ideal world the 75" Q9 will drop by 50% come the holiday silly season as I would definitely weigh on 3 grand for that and relegate the Sony upstairs but it's highly unlikely.

As I've already said above I have zero interest in Lucky Goldstar so don't follow their products' news to have any idea how much of an improvement this year's models are to last year's.

But I do reckon loads of people end up in a situation like I now find myself in and thus are willing to pay substantially higher prices for the latest lines when they have better specs inside.
It's hardly mid cycle when the B7/ C7 has been out for over a year! Why would they keep producing the 2017 versions when the new 2018 versions are due out soon?

Your words, not mine so how am I meant to interpret that any other way?

I was going to make a right sarcie comment about how are they still for sale now if they sold out last year but chose to go the diplomatic route by admitting I hate Lucky Goldstar so don't know enough about their products' availability and thus came out with what I did.

I thought it was pretty obvious that I was referring to the 16 model which sold out without dropping in price - the 17 had only been out a number of weeks this time last year.

The point I was trying to make was that this tv will likely sell out without the massive price drop that a lot of people are waiting for, as has happened with previous versions. At £1,400 it's already less than half the price of the original RRP.

One man's obvious is another man's ambiguous so I try my hardest to play nicely before flying in with me size 11's first these days.

Each manufacturer is slightly different of course but as a rule the previous year's tellies will go down to about 50% of the original release price as the launch of that current year's new range gets closer.

Sony's seem to generally remain a wee bit over 50% whilst Samsung's can drop to a tad under 50% of original price but both fluctuate on specific models for whatever reason, numbers sold and numbers sat in warehouses I'd imagine.

As regards these here, as I have kept saying I don't know nothing about Lucky Goldstar but I would have thought with how their OLED range continue to be all the rage currently I'd go along with your train of thought that this price may well be as good as it gets.

Which is exactly why I chipped in about if someone is desperate to take the OLED route and loves Lucky Goldstar more than life itself(which many seem to these days) then they could easily be swayed to weigh on a load more dough for this year's better models rather than last year's ones which are allegedly much more inferior due to this new all singing n dancing processing chip.

Even I have to reluctantly admit that some of these new ones coming out are much more pleasing on the eye aesthetically than last year's range which would seal the deal for me were I in the market for a Lucky Goldstar OLED but I'm not so that's rather irrelevant

Black Friday!!?? So your recommendation to someone wanting a TV is wait till November. Sheesh.

I would have thought his 'recommendation' is pretty much along the lines of stating the obvious which is what I said to other matey.

If you want the very latest tech as soon as it launches then go ahead which in the case of a 2018 LG OLED will set you back around 3 grand for the 55 incher.

If you're not prepared/able to weigh on that sort of money chances are it will be at least a grand cheaper come Black Friday.

No idea what that 'sheesh' is all about because, if you want the latest gear get it now and pay the premium. All he's saying is that he wouldn't do himself rather waiting for Black Friday to save a few bob

Yeah, exactly that. I wouldn't recommend people buy a new car either, but some folk do. I guess it depends on how much disposable income you have, but since this is a deals site I would suspect most people here want to save a few quid.

I bought a brand new Focus just over a year n half ago so I'm guilty on that front but then again I am the most un-car person you'll ever meet. I don't get flash cars and never have done so I'd rather buy a new'un once every 10 years or so for the simple reason I can vouch for every mile it's ever driven and every bit of maintenance has been done where n when required.

Telly wise I have bought sets when they were a chunk older but also jumped on ones when they brand new out too, the XE9005 being one last Spring but we did get 600 or 700 quid off it through her work so it weren't too bad.

All this talk of OLED makes me even more determined not to follow the trend. I'm definitely waiting for this year's Q9 to drop to the right price and because I've already resigned myself to it being a long slog I will definitely be buying one of the two biggest sizes when I do.
I bought the C7 model when it was £1499 in Currys a few weeks ago, the C7 has an extruded aluminium stand, was about £10 more expensive. Astounding picture quality, the reviews say it all. Interesting article on where the technology is heading , here. . . a.msn.com/r/2…-gb
