Ces 2018 is coming but Iv been following oled Tv for years & the 2018 model will be at least £2000-£2500 minimum for at least 6 months when it is launched
They won't discount it to £1350 straight away
It's a good time to purchase a oled lg
Buy from rs it's a no brainer.6 year warranty and a company which pay their taxes and treat staff well,

Good price, personally I’ll rather price match this with Richer Sounds and get the 5 year warranty aswell.
6 years with RS? Or 5 yrs with Curry's. Guess JL won't price match it. Have this locked in at this week's 1349 with JL, just hoping come next week they drop more.

Me too but I’m also keeping a eye on the Sony Kd55a1 it’s getting ever more tempting.

True, but cheapest for that one still £1999 RGB (with cashback), that's still quite a difference, will be hard enough explain this one to the other half!

Same price as I got mine for aswell. Richer sounds will always beat deals and give extra off to get the sale.
Was holding off again to see if this would drop down to £1350 or even better if it went below that. Should I bite or not? How's the uniformity on these screens, and the worry of screen burn will always be on my mind. I have a Panny Plasma though and have never had an issue with burn in.
Good spot, was looking at LG super uhd tv but may just go the whole hog with this.

£1350 is my bite point too and as it has been that price before I'm sure it will again!

I would love to buy one but looks like it's hit or miss as to whether you get an acceptable panel.

Blimey, 5 hours use.... Maybe will wait after all, yet some people have no issues, really odd but had read these are expensive as difficult to make and they therefore have to price in the expected returns, which is poor really.
Agreed, that looks really bad, this is my one and only worry with this set and stopping me buying at the moment...the ratings on these kinds of burn-in tests seem to be really bad in comparison to its competition.

Of course if you could get away with paying as little tax as possible you would decline that bank balance boosting option wouldn't you?

That's my worry with buying this set and that does look horrible. As others mentioned there are plenty of sets that seem to be ok, and it's a case of playing the panel lottery. I really want this TV due to the deep blacks and contrast, but fear getting a set like this.
Still 10% cashback and a price match possibility at Curry's. Will bring this TV below £1300

I really did not want to read words like "panel lottery" (yet to read "roll of the dice) when you are spending this amount of money on a TV.

I have recently returned two different PC monitors (over £800 each) due to issues, finally settling on a Dell which is "acceptable".

I assumed that QC was much better and consistent with TV's, then again I had hoped the same with PC monitors.

My 50" GT50 Plasma might have more life left in it than I thought possible.

Out of curiosity do these OLED TV's support all, if not most, of the desired standards associated with whatever is thought as being needed these days..?
You can tell that I have been avoiding a great deal of reading these days - blame that on my Plasma

Currys are horrendous for warranties I’d personally stay away. As someone said above this deal includes 5 years warranty and if you have problems with the TV, Amazon will always try to help.
My Panasonic ez1002b suffered screen burn after a heavy ps4 session but cleared after turning the tv off for 10 min. It's happened twice since and switching off clears it
Burn-in is the #1 reason I refuse to use OLED, despite everything else being superb. I use my main TV as a PC monitor for when I'm gaming and the windows start menu/taskbar, along with Chrome + other HUD elements being static for hours at a time will damage the screen. The same thing happened to my old plasma too.

Screw that. I'll stick with the slightly inferior LCD technology until they solve this issue, which seems unlikely any time soon.

The LG OLED range supports Dolby Vision, HDR10, Technicolor HDR, HLG (broadcast HDR) and has all 4 HDMI sockets supporting 4K @ 60hz.These OLED panels are also 120hz@1080p (HDMI bandwidth restricts 4K@120Hz currently). Input lag for gaming is the lowest available for an OLED, 21ms.HDR10+ is a feature from HDMI 2.1 sets that manufacturers will sell in 2018, however, Samsung and Panasonic have already committed to implementing it on 2017 sets. LG may follow suit - considering LG support more formats than any other at this time.

Imo I can't see LG implementing HDR10+ it's a direct rival to Dolby vision. A HDR format battle. It seems a manufacturer supports one or the other. A shame for the consumer
Had my B6 6 months never ever had this issue, Use a HTPC with it, the screensaver kicks in on motionless images automatically

I really want one of these. My Panasonic plasma died a few months ago and I got a backlit LCD as a warranty replacement. Terrible edge bleed and I can't cope with the lack of blacks. I've just been to RS for a new AV amp so one of these could end in a divorce. The price is really getting tempting though!!

I'm torn between a flawed OLED or a flawed LED Sony ZD9.
Got this TV a few weeks back for £1380 and am loving it so far, no issues at all and I'm a fussy so and so.

Thanks for that. In the past I thought that it was a little simpler to make the choice between Plasma and LED, yes there were other considerations I know. But I could not really go wrong with the Panasonic GT50 50" Plasma and it still looks pretty impressive today.

Just noting what you have written is interesting and also what Smadmad has added......

I take the point about LG "may" look to implementing the HDR10+ std and can understand that it would be the consumer who would be left with the consequences if it does become a dominant standard and either LG decide to not retrofit it, through firmware updates, on existing models.

Perhaps my Plasma needs to last longer than I thought, not a bad thing really given how good the content still looks on it.
Just checked online and RS are price matching this (with 6 year warranty of course).

It's easy to over worry, it's a future standard that adds a little in terms of HDR quality. The established HDR modes are fully supported. HDR10+ might become important at some point, but then you would be worrying about a new standard. Find a TV that supports all those HDR standards and features right now, you would constantly be waiting for the next thing. IMO

P.S Have a read about DV compared to HDR10+ to see if it is important to you should it prevail and not arrive on this set.

The extra brightness should only be used for HDR content. Standard SD/HD content should be set up to only produce 100 nits, maybe a little brighter in daylight.

No issues with my B7.
I got the C7 from Curry's yesterday (5yr Guarantee) for £1499 but with 10% cashback from TCP which brought it down to £1374.08

Sorry you lost me after 1st sentence.If everyone takes your view that's it's fine to avoid tax if you can get away with it then who is paying the country's overheads.Personally I would give my cash to a company who pay their fair share and more importantly respect the staff who work for them .Does that sound like Amazon???

You are right. I remember getting too bogged down in the detail when it came to decide between mirrorless or DSLR when buying a camera. It can be too easy to end up doing nothing.
In this situation, regarding a TV, I am more restrained as our Plasma is still doing a mighty fine job considering what our primary watching content is.
As long as it continues that way, our Plasma is out of its five years JL warranty, it will last unless the TV fails in a non-repairable way. The EPG no longer works for the Freeview, it is a known failure on this TV, but that is of little consequence.
Advice/opinions please..Having been a life-long Sony TV fan I bought a 55" Samsung LED a few years ago and was blown away by how good it was. I am now looking to buy a 65" set...am confused as to whether I stick to Samsung for one of their Q range of SUHD, or go for one of the LG OLEDs...or do I go back to Sony for one of their newer panels? Any advice gratefully received.
