Nice one, I really want one. Just struggling to spend this much on a TV despite knowing how good these are and how good of a deal this is.
i ordered the Philips POS9002 - is this tv better? cant seem to decide between the two although this will be £400 pounds cheaper but no android

Just buy a good Android box eg the upcoming Nvida shield from Amazon and you will still save money with this B7

I know. I know. My Current TV is not that old really 3/4 years. Its not 4k. But I don't have any 4k devices or services yet... Prime day it is though so I might end up with a new TV and xbox....

You could always order lt now in case the price just randomly changes and wait till it arrives use the cooling off period to think it over and just return it. Just sell your current tv and you get a bit of your money back

Would lack of Dolby vision on the Philips be a long term issue? Is that industry standard now or soon.

It's not better or worse - just different. Both are absolutely fantastic TVs and the Philips has its own unique selling points over this one, such as Ambilight (which I love, personally) and no problems with a dim HDR game mode like the 2017 LGs. Of course, you lose some stuff too, like Dolby Vision support, so it's just a matter of which features you prefer, or which downsides bother you less. As for raw picture quality, there's no going to be much between them. The Philips won a blind shootout overseen by AVForums between various OLEDs at the end of last year:

It's hard to say at this point. There's relatively little Dolby Vision content out there right now, so it's not a big deal really. It remains to be seen how much there'll be in the future, and there's also the competing HDR10+ out there. It's also worth noting that the TV not supporting DV doesn't mean you can't watch DV content - it'll just play in standard HDR10 instead. Which usually doesn't result in too much difference, beyond a little less detail in highlights.

All depends on what OS you find better using, both TV are very close to each other. I find LG OS to match my needs and very easy to use

i bought lg630V for my father in law and did not like the OS at all. much prefer the android one although i have the nvidia shield as well....
Sat on the fence about these so much - the burn-in worries me. Not a massively regular gamer but may (once a week) have a spare two hours and have a good stint on a game (most of which will have static huds).If i didn't game on it at all, I would have purchased one of these in a heartbeat.
I bought at 1199 last Saturday - will they throw 25 sheets back my way ?
Heat. Bought at the weekend for £1199 from them. Want loose sleep, everything comes down in price over time!

Gaming for 2 hours with a static hud is going to do nothing.
It only becomes a problem if you do it for like 24h+

OT: I would buy this, but I can't get past the silver bezels
Suppose you could just descreatly black tape it...

For it to be a problem you would need to game on this daily for hours on end and there are even people doing that without any issues
Worth holding out for the c8? Is it alot Better?

Is this dim HDR game mode still an issue? I'm tempted to swap my KS7000 for an LG B7 but the majority of my HDR viewing is Playstation/Xbox and don't want to have issues... I thought the B7 would be a big upgrade over my KS7000..

Overall I prefer the Philips but it's quite a bit more and don't like the thought of buying an OLED and already not having Dolby Vision support!

I wouldn't say the lack of Android TV is a downside really. The LG has far superior app support out of the box anyway, the Philips doesn't have a lot of the major catch-up apps or Amazon Video (unless they've updated it recently).
Think this is my biting point. May order when I get home later if its still available!
This is a genuine question and not intended to cause any arguments.

I have a Pioneer Kuro plasma and in my heart want to upgrade to this TV. However, when I view the OLEDs in store, I'm put off by: colours that don't quite look right; yellow tinting compared to the non-OLED TVs alongside; and noticeable lack of detail in the dark (shadow) areas i.e. dark greys collapsing to black.

Has anyone else made the Kuro to OLED jump here? What's been your experience at home please?

While 4k is nice, I want it to look good on SkyQ 1080i as well.

Probably doesn't look right as colours and contrast would be set to Max in store for visual impact. I would ask or change the settings yourself to get a better idea of normal usage

get terrarium for that
I,m also in the same predicament. Stick withe my kuro 5090 or move to OLED. I know there are other benefits, smart tv, lower energy usage etc but just cant decide. Hmmm........
Really want this but on PayPal credit 2 years interest free. Anyone have an idea why only the 4 month free option is there?
Biting point for me, thanks OP. My bank account hates you

The bezel is so thin I don't even notice it!

I don't know what the in-built tuner is like but I watch TV through a freesat box and all channels are perfectly watchable even the really low quality SD channels - the upscaler does a great job in my opinion.

4K HDR is jaw dropping! The last scenes in amazing spiderman 2 are quite the spectacle!
Edited by: "superal" 16th Jul
I nearly never got this cos of the silver bezel. Was favouring the C7 but that wasn't available.

Honestly as above it's so thin you don't even notice the bezel colour when viewing. Plus I prefer the stand on this than the C7's too.
