Price matching Richer Sounds as another option, 5 year warranty and a reputable retailer

The code JULY100 is clearly visible on the page so should allow a John Lewis price match if you prefer e.g. you may have workplace discounted John Lewis vouchers, staff discount etc

I don't believe John Lewis previously matched the Richer deal due to the code not being visible

Richer Sounds possibly may beat by £20 under their price beat guarantee (not sure as is the same price but maybe worth a try)

Richer Sounds code not working anymore it seems
Bought mine on 9th June from John Lewis in store £1,299, managed to get them to refund £100 yesterday based on Richer Sounds offer. Only 1 week left of price match now!!!

Great TV btw
Bite at this price! BEST TV Out there right now.
Competition catching up and people like me who own LG’s have started to wake up to their not so great build quality ( thank God we have the long 5 year warranty as LG do break down) I can see this around £800, come Black Friday, xmas/ new year sales.

Not going to happen. Will be sold out, and B8 will not be that cheap by then.
Isn't this the same price as last year when the new units were coming out? I got my 65" Ks9000 for the same price last year as I preferred it over the OLED. I'd still recommend that over this for general viewing

The LG OLED is much better, you cant really compare the two
The LG B7 has a bad result on our image retention test, as we detected some faint ghost remnant of the Rtings logos even after 10 minutes of recovery. This is a worse result than we tested on the C7 and the E7, which were both better on this test and this result is more in line with the 2016 B6. This is likely only due to panel variance though, as all 2017 LG OLED TVs should perform very similarly as the panel used in those supposed to be the same. Playing normal video content for a couple more minutes did make any image retention that was still visible go away though.


Also remember the brightness is only 450nits at best, 750 only on 2% of the panel... so it's a very dim TV, only buy it if it's going in a dark room. It has colours banding problems in PC mode, so don't buy it for monitor use, along with the screen burn and it's auto brightness limiter.

The LG B7A is bad at showing low frame rate content without stutter. The frame transition occurs almost instantaneously which can be quite jarring, as the image is static for about 40ms each frame of a movie. This is especially noticeable with wide panning shots. The only way to reduce this stutter is to increase the frame rate of the content through motion interpolation.

The LG B7 has a native 120Hz panel, but doesn't support any variable refresh rate features such as FreeSync and G-Sync.

The Xbox One X sports free sync, and you'll want it if you have that console as it's great or stopping screen tearing.

This is a huge concern if accurate. Everyone goes on about how good this set it, but I will not update my TV until this problem is solved. All these extra features that get added each year (though really do want HDR), waste of time if you can't make 90%+ content not be jarring!

That was funnier than most TV sitcoms Total cow plops
Poor build quality, iam not sure about other oled models. But the same can be said for the Samsung ks7000 Qled.
all tv's have issues with stutter as it is the "pan & scan" and is inherent in the technology with LCD and Oled.

it has to be really bad to notice it. I had a plasma tv that was terrrible for the pan shots but later models worked better. Some tvs have better "motion flow" such a Sony but they are running Android Tv which is a dogs dinner.... I would think you would be really unlucky to see what an earlier poster suggested. That's why all the flag ship tv's are now Oled expect for Samsung who will never buy panels from LG....
Also agree these will be gone soon and you won't get them for much lower as they are 2017 stock and the newer models are now out....
Wow people pay alot, for tv's

Samsung are the largest maker of OLED screens in the world, but for smartphone screens not TV panels. They could make their own fairly easily if they wanted to but they've sunked so much into Qled for their TVs it's basically an ego stopping them from doing a U-turn on it and start making oled TVs instead.
Just tried to order and it's now saying that the JULY100 code is invalid, despite saying on their deals page that it takes £100 off

I can confirm that if you're sensitive to it (I am) once you notice it, it will spoil your enjoyment. The problem I had was that trying to find a balance between judder and SOE. Settings over 1 and 1 I would notice SOE but judder was still there. Maybe there was a setting to balance it out much better but I never found it.

Also OLEDs are all about the black levels and that was a bit spoilt at near black as I could see panel issues on some scenes (vertical banding) this more likely to be worse on the 65" screens.

The above shot I think was a scene about to fade as I shot it.

The one below is 5% black.

Did exactly the same. Went for the 65" KS9000 over this TV as they were both the same price but it meant I could get a larger screen. My living room is very bright which was also a concern with an OLED.
Had a reply back from PRC

"Unfortunately we are currently not running this promotion but if there is any change, please refer back to the product page below for any update."

I've replied saying this is unacceptable as it's advertised on their deals page and I said a number of customers from here have had the discount! Really want this TV!!!!

Have you got 2 of them? Both photos yours? Blu-ray, streaming or TV?

Difficult to tell the impact of banding from a still, guess I'll find out soon enough.
Looks like this deal has expired...

"Hi,



We’re very sorry but we won’t be able to offer this promotion and it was due to be removed from our deals page but as a result of administrative difficulties, we are currently unable to remove it and apologise for the misunderstanding.

Fab bit of kit & when set up for the environment it is in, makes the older oLED tech like this one a bit dated.

There is a superb (new) full review and testing of oLED vs qLED here, which is a tiptop way to learn more about the tech involved and what is coming, before you drop £1300 on a tv that should have been £999 in the first place, that is 10" smaller than a KS9000 for less!

That's the same tv on those photos. I sent it back as I a couple of other issues. The westworld shot was a stream, but the banding is a screen fault and can be seen on anything. Even on Xbox.
"slannmage:

The thing that sticks out most about this is the brightness statement. My current Panasonic 4k TV was reviewed by AV forums who stated that with 'Dynamic' settings peak brightness reached 450 nits and was too bright for any environment.

I leave mine in True Cinema mode where the brightness is lower all the time and it's not in a 'dark room'. When its really sunny (like yesterday) is when I consider closing the curtains (because can't be bothered to manually change the TV settings).

These statements need some prospective.

This OLED has a greater average screen brightness than my current TV, local brightness (think 10%, 2%) 30-40% greater than my current TV and can do dynamic tone mapping to compensate for any peak brightness limitations (Active HDR).

OLED is attractive not just because of the low blacks (my current one does 0.02 nits), but the pixel level precision for peak brightness and lowest of blacks.

The Samsungs have impressive peak brightness but can only be achieved with their backlight on max for that region. I think I saw 2018 QLEDs have full array dimming again (like in 2015).

Totally agree with this. I have the 65" C7 and absolutely love it. Genuinely the best TV I have ever owned, and I swapped a lot last year. Went through the Sony 75" XE940, Sony A1 OLED, Samsung KS9000 and ultimately stuck with this. No regrets whatsoever.
We had this tv delivered last week and initially I found the picture frustrating, but after messing with the settings we love it. We’ve had to turn the brightness down as it was starting to hurt our eyes and the whites were glowing!

No, I’m not a tech pro and I don’t speak tech beyond the basics. But we’ve enjoyed the football in ultra hd and the extras have meant we haven’t used our firestick once since it was delivered.

Also, this is our 4th LG big screen - 1st plasma, 2nd and 3rd both led and now this oled. Every single one still works perfectly - no issues, no screen burns....nothing.

Just the Q9 model which is nearly 3 times the price of this deal. All lower models are edge lit which I just don't see the point.
