Nice find OP and heat added. I have one locked in checkout but not sure if I should buy, don’t really need it but love a deal.
Great deal but for those of us who play games it still has much slower refresh rates.

I've had one of these over 15 months and play PS4 and Xbox games. I see no issues, works beautifully for me.
Maybe I'm getting old and befuddled.
Gone... Looks like they only had 1 in stock
Main issue is the 12 mth guarantee..but great price

I’ll empty my basket at exactly 12.30 if you want to try and nab it.

For this price you would generally get a used one, with no guarantee...

Cheers mate. But couldn't make up my mind yet. I'm more tempted to go with Panasonic 58' deal at Costco as it comes with 5 yr warranty

That's a vague statement. The majority of TVs are limited to 60Hz over HDMI, whilst Input lag and response time on the B6V are decent. Need to wait for the 2019 models to see if the 2.1 spec is fully implemented (120Hz/VRR/QFT etc.)

If you're referring to 144hz+ PC gaming monitors I think it's a pointless comparison.

But am I right in saying they won't support variable refresh rate?
Can it do 4k@120hz via pc? I'm still looking for that holy grail, not too fussed about input lag

I don't think any TVs support the new HDMI features, but 2019 models should be a big improvement for gamers.

Nice offer but I don't think it works like that, when stocks gone it's gone doesn't matter if it's in your basket. It gets removed if someone buys the last one.

No there's not enough HDMI bandwidth on any current models, but it's not far off.
I believe the 7 and 8 series support 120Hz @ 1080p.
Was very tempted by this but I think it's just made me decide to go for the 55C8....ouch!
As stated above, the only downside to this is the lack of extended warranty. Even buying one brand new an extended warranty is a must as the tech is still fairly new and complex when compared with LCD and even Plasma.

I paid around £4500 for a 42” plasma back in 2007 or so - it wasn’t even a top spec, they were £6000-8000.

In those days nothing came with a 5 year warranty, I lived, and so did the TV.

You had to read the reviews first, for an LG OLED?

You had absolutely no intention of buying it, why clutter up the thread?

Nothing personal but there is so much of that kind of guff on here

You'll be fussed about input lag when you try to use it for desktop use. Its like using a mouse cursor through treacle. You stop the mouse and the cursor keeps moving. It makes it hard to even click the X on chrome tabs.

Luckily these have low input lag, but just something to bare in mind.

I don’t game, but I’ve been using TVs as monitors for a PC (nowadays a Mac) since around 2009/2010and I’ve never experienced that.

The first one was a 32” Hitachi LCD (Argos special!) and currently a 55” Samsung 4K, with a few in between.
That’s not true. OLED is no better imvho. I had a Samsung ks7500 and swapped it for the C6. The missus sees for first time and asks what’s happened to the picture it was much better on the other one. Funny how the opinion is based on what she sees not what she reads. Not saying OLED isn’t good but if you are longing for one because of these sort of comments you might be disappointed when you do.

i have the same opinion, when i see the Samsung SUHDs side by side with LG OLED C6 in Currys I don't actually see the OLED better. I couldn't believe my eyes..

Firstly, I hardly cluttered up the thread, one comment rather than a petty back and forth about which screen type is better?

Secondly, I don't shell out £800 (i know that not a lot for an OLED but it's a lot for me) on a telly, knowing absolutely nothing about it, so I had to make sure it suited my needs as a gamer! Obviously not everyone is as clued up on TVs as some of the "boffins" on here (although a lot of them base their opinions on hearsay and little fact)!

So like i said, once i got halfway through the review I decided I would take a punt on it, seemed too good not to. So I had every intention of buying it. Then it was gone, you snooze you lose! Anyone, someone else may have had it in their basket then changed their mind like yourself?

Back then TV's were made to last with infinitely better build quality to what they churn out now - they were over-engineered and in 2007 Plasma was a well developed Technology. £4500 for a 42" Plasma in 2007? not even top spec? I only paid £999 for Samsung PS42Q97HD in June 07 and that was a mid range set.

I think it depends on what you perceive as constituting a better picture quality. LED screens can be brighter but suffer from light bloom and can't compete with contrast levels. For me OLED is better suited to darker environments and has a more realistic image.

Yeah, it’s horses for courses. Always seems to be an “OLED is your ultimate tv” around here which I don’t think (for everyone) it is

It may have been 2006, sorry, I know they were new to the market here and I desperately had to have one!

I disagree about them being better made back then - yes the housings were heavier and more substantial, but the electronics weren’t as advanced, and there were a lot more ‘boards’ etc to go wrong.

Also, I wouldn’t say plasma was any more established in 2006/7, than OLED is today.
I still mention to people that only a couple of months ago I dropped £1300 on an LCD TV. "But you might as well have paid £200 more for an OLED".
Well yes, I could have - but in my opinion, having seen both in the flesh, I would have been paying £200 additional for something that wasn't looking as good when it came to the "brightest brights".
It's not a popular opinion I know - but I refused to simply accept OLED is the be all and end all.

Obviously I was exaggerating by saying you had cluttered up the thread, but there are always these excuses such as ’I was just about to pull the trigger, but’ and ’I’d be all over this, if’ - I don’t understand why people write things like this, perhaps thinking it impresses people.

Would you have to read reviews first if a Ferrari popped up for £10,000? Or a Rolex for £500?

Everyone knows how good LG OLED TVs are, and if you had any intention of buying, you would have, without checking reviews first.

With total due respect to your wife, why would Sony and Panasonic purchase screens from LG, and use them in their top of the line TVs, if LED was better?

It's all about the blackest blacks for me, after all - I generally only watch it in a dark room anyway.

Agree there are plenty of attention seeking comments on here, but I stick by what I said in there is noway I'm buying a TV, OLED or otherwise, without reading up on it first. Some OLEDs have been far from perfect I'm sure and this could have been one of the bad models, some say its better to get a higher end LED than a lower end OLED, so it was worth a 2 minute read. Unfortunately that two read minute cost me the TV but hey ho, life finds a way. At least I know for next time. Peace!
