Got this model refurbished for £620 last Friday with the 10% ebay code. Was really sceptical at first because of the price but besides box damage the unit is fresh and the tv itself is glorious.

The seller was Huges clearance and they provide 12 moth warranty. Keep an eye on ebay as you could get a similar deal.
really bad burn on mine, i use a pc on it though, the taskbar is always there even when watching tv

Was waiting for a deal with 55" b8 to ask a question ... this or philips 9002 ? I would really like to have philips due to ambilight and android os but apparently lg is much better ? Can have both at the same price (£900 as have discounts). All i need it for is to watch tv programs (not news) 3-4 hrs a day. Eventually in a case of a high risk of burning there is an option for a samsung's qled qe55q60 for £800 ... any opinions ?

Philips 55POS9002 doesn't have Dolby Vision or Dolby Atmos but if that's of no bother to you then go for it. The P5 processing is brilliant and motion is right up there as one of the very best. The ambilight is excellent. Overall it's still an excellent TV

I've the oled b8. Wouldnt change it for another TV. Had the b7 before. Burn in is over hyped. The risk is minimal. So many safety features in the tv to limit the chance of getting burn in to. If you want the best picture possible. B8 easy.

Put autohide taskbar.
Where is the problem.. google for step by step instructions, seen plenty.
thx guys for the respond, will probably go with the LG ... same price here with 5 years warranty just in case cramptonandmoore.co.uk/lg-…BwE ... so JL will probably do a price match

Trying to decide between maybe this and the Panasonic fz802 but have heard the LG has issues with freesat?
I would certainly try to price match this at John Lewis as they will unbox it and make sure there is no damage when they deliver it themselves.
I really want this tv , was hoping could get for nearer £900 I guess it’s just a waiting game

ms84, you'll be happy whichever OLED TV you choose. For watching 3-4 hour per day, you've no chance of burn-in. Don't even bother considering QLED. I've had my C6 for 2.5 years now and everything looks great. Doesn't matter if its standard definition BBC1 in the mornings or 4K youtube. The colour, constrast and viewing angles make OLED worth every penny.

Put the TV into some recommended settings and you will be fine.
I use mine for film, TV and games and I’ve had no problems. So long as you don’t use the horrendous ‘vivid’ mode and turn everything up to max then the tv will perform exceptionally. Using such a mode will run the tv hotter which is likely to cause burn in/image retention.

Heat OP.

This is OLED I know, but function wise, and quality wise how does it compare to last years ks8100, 8500, 9500 series?? And does it come with smart remote?

Where is the problem?

If you have to take steps as you have suggested, then you are always going to worry that something will cause burn in.
A TV station has a dog on the screen....burn in. A computer game has a health bar on the screen....burn in.

I don't know how much of a problem burn in is on OLED but this issue is always brought up, enough so that it seriously puts me off
Bought this 3 months ago/ish from RS for 940. is a great tv does all that it should so much better than my old HD. But I would have bought the Panny if it had been similar price. have seen 65 pannies with the bar speaker for1500. what a great price...but back to this recommend it highly a great tv and the sound is excellent...Dolby vision and atmos are the main reason for buying this, which incidentally the panny doesnt have as I recall

This is in my opinion, the best mid-tier TV. WebOS is fantastic (I got retired my 4K Roku), the upscaling is great, it looks amazing after calibration and Dolby-vision is fantastic and the magic-remote is game changing.

There are only two negatives I can give it - they cheaped out and didn’t include a 1-gigabit Ethernet port and the ghosting can get a bit iffy when watching sports (I only watch F1)

The hdmi sockets where faulty. Caused the picture to flicker. Had a full refund and bought the b8 instead of the b7 again.

Function wise all but identical to the 9500. Has the same processing chip too. Yes, has magic remote.

If its mainly for movies and you enjoy watching in a nice dark room, then I'd choose OLED without a second thought, theres nothing out there better.
If like me you're into gaming (better refresh rate, less ghosting), have kids who might have TV on (so worried about screen burn), or need brightness increasing during day use then something like the sk9500 might be more suitable, plus you can save £250 towards a decent sound system

People are just scared to spend so much money on something that may end up being faulty, I can totally appreciate that so let me help you out. If you want a TV for normal viewing (Live TV, movies, Netflix) get an OLED. If you want a TV for extensive gaming (for a lot of hours every day) or you want the news to be constantly on all day then you might be better off getting an LCD TV. Basically if your TV is going to be on all the time, get LCD / QLED, for anything else OLED

I have an LG B7 OLED TV and even though I have a wife and two kids......it's still the best thing in my house! (yes, I have told them that already )

Also worth adding: if it's a brightly lit room there's not much point in getting the OLED. If you can block out sunlight etc, nothing will beat OLED. Otherwise QLED etc is fine.

If you watch the same news channel for 4 hours a day or play the same game for 4 hours a day then it's going to be a problem.

I’ll add to this. OLED burn-in isn’t really a problem anymore. I absolutely batter my B8 - use it to play games, watch cartoon and news channels with logos all at max OLED light, 100% of the time. I have had ZERO problems and it still looks stunning.

It absolutely still is a problem, but only for relatively niche users.

You're displaying there why it's not a problem in your case, you're using it for multiple different purposes. It's more the person who plays only 1 game all year (COD etc), or leaves the news channels on for unusual amounts of time that are going to experience issues.

For most users, it's not going to be an issue.

No it's not. I wouldnt upgrade from the b7 to the b8. The b8 has a few more features and it's better for gaming. But apart from that. Not much difference.
