Too expensive for a soon to be redundant model...make it around the grand …Too expensive for a soon to be redundant model...make it around the grand mark and you've got value...been as low as £1300 in the past too...


It's a bizarre line of thinking that this should be cheaper than far, far inferior LCDs of the same size (in fact, cheaper than many 49" 2018 models will be at launch). Whether this is a 2017 model or not, it outperforms any LCD TV on the market, from this, last or any other year. You're also in for disappointment if you're expecting this year's OLEDs to be a big improvement, as the technology seems to have plateaued somewhat for now. There's no brightness increase with the 2018 models, meaning at best all you'll get is slightly improved upscaling and motion handling from the new image processors that companies have developed. And those will be hitting the market at £1000 more than this, making this fantastic value by comparison. Sure, it's been even cheaper, but unless you have a time machine, that's irrelevant.

I can't see it getting much cheaper than this before stock runs out, but you never know. Waiting for discontinued stuff to fall in price is always a balancing act.

Possibly, but not by much. £1500 is a great price for a TV that outperforms pretty much anything on the market at the moment. The 2018 models will be upwards of £2500 when they hit the shops in the next couple of months.

YOu only have to read the magazine and customer reviews to know this guy is making sense. Nothing else in the price range comes anywhere near this model for performance.
Also worth checking if your workplace has a 'perks' offering, PC World / currys and John Lewis all have 7% off if buying a re-loadable gift card, another £105 in your pocket

From what I remember reading on here a few months ago, the 2018 models will have improved motion handling (basically an improvement in motion resolution) but only on the G & E series. The B & C series will have pretty much the same motion handling specs as the 2017 models. With that in mind, grabbing one of these now could be a very shrewd move.

I hope I'm wrong but for the last few years £1300 is the cheapest it will go. Still a long way off £999. Even though I paid £1800, its been worth every penny.

If you go on the forums, people just turn all motion processing off on these OLEDs and the motion is fine. When I'm watching a football game my C6 is equal to the Plasma it replaced, i.e. I see no issues whatsoever. I can't comment on 24fps content as I don't watch any.

The only OLED that made it down to a grand last year was the 1080p LG (Richer Sounds). I highly doubt any 7 series will go down that low. £1200 at a push (store specific/ex demo, etc) £1300 maybe as a very last push to get rid of stock, IF there's any left.

Fair point - I was just passing what I'd heard with regards to improvements tbf.

I have a panny plasma (ST50) and have IFC set to minimum with all other processing turned off.

No problems Birch. My comment wasn't really directed to you.

There seems to be a few myths on here from LCD fan boys regarding OLED motion handling and Burn in. LG don't help the situation by having motion processing turned on by default, as there processing is unnecessary and rubbish.

To Plasma owners thinking about OLED, take the plunge, you won't be disappointed.
wonder if we will see any E7's on offer before the 2018 models come out, also LG doing £500&£800 cash back on the 55E7 &65E7 again until May,

Fair play mate.

Ugh...if I have to read one more post confusing Image Retention & Screen Burn....

Anyway, yes, I'll be in the market for OLED when my plasma finally gives up on me. I'll be going Panasonic again though, I think - they've got the history where it comes to self emissive tech and their screen filters are second to none. They also play any codec you can throw at them without breaking a sweat - Something the other big players have struggled with in my experience.

I have owned a B7 OLED, but returned it due to strongly disagreeing with LG's tone mapping decisions in its HDR game mode, which were introduced via a firmware update (non-optionally).

avsforum.com/for…tml

I'm currently using an LCD whilst hoping that the OLEDs from other manufacturers come down to this sort of price as stock is cleared (ideally the Sony A1, but that's unlikely to happen). The fact that it's an incredible TV despite that isn't in question though. You simply cannot do better than an OLED right now in terms of picture quality, and this year's models are going to bring little worth paying a lot more money for.

Definitely worth keeping an eye out for the older models on clearance. Last weekend I got a OLED55B6V for £699. The box had been opened, but it works perfectly and the receipt says it has a 5 year warranty.

Nope the C model will also have the the new Alpha 9 chip.
It's just the B model that is a rehash of last year's sets.

Ahh, Ok. Knew it was something like that. Strange they've left the B series out of the upgrade. Maybe they're going to sell at a cheaper pricepoint or something (probably not)
Could have sworn this one was same price at Richer Sounds yesterday, but with 6 years warranty? Can't stop to dig out info but might be worth checking

Agreed - that is what I remember hearing on the AVForums podcast. I think they said that B8 would be effectively the same as the B7, and I mentally logged that the C8 would be the one to go for. Like I am going to find £2500 for a TV!!
