2018 model
Very good price. My stepson has the 65in model and that was £3000
cant be too long for the 2019 model to drop a bit more.

Isn’t the B9 a better TV?
Or C9?

Or C9?


C9 probably. Better processing, higher peak brightness and full HDMI 2.1 implementation.

E8 has better sound though.

Both great TV's!

I'd probably go for this if HDMI 2.1 isn't a big deal for you
Best picture I've ever seen or had on any tv,shame the technology is flawed,I'm on my second screen due to screen burn..I'll NEVER BUY ANOTHER OLED TV because of this and what the technician told me when he replaced the screen. ☹👎

What did he tell you?

What did he tell you?


He told me he had replaced hundreds of screens in all makes and models of oled tv's due to the same problem(SCREEN BURN),and not just LG because the oled technology belongs to them.ALL oled tv's have the same screen in them regardless of brand or model number,even the flagship models which at the time were nearly £20K..GUTTED as other than this issue the tv is outstanding.😫☹👎
I think screen burn is the wrong terminology, it's more that the organic luminescent pigments decompose with use, which means the effect is cumulative - periodic channel changes etc will not help.

I've been set on an oled since I first saw them, but I can't stomach a 2 yr usage cycle, so it looks like a q80 for me....

This had me curious / worried enough to look it up, and like most claims there's a grain of truth in it, but it's way out of date.

"Ever since Kodak started working on OLED in the 70’s, longevity has been a topic. The organic material inside the pixels that helps create light and colors decays over time."

Lee Byung-chul, Vice president for LG Electronics to Korea Times and continued; "technological development has extended it to 100,000 hours now. This is equal to 30 years, if a user watches our OLED TV for 10 hours a day."

A lifespan of 100,000 hours, if correct, appears to refute the rumors that especially LG’s local neighbor likes to spread. Samsung has reportedly given up on mass-producing OLED TVs and has cited longevity as one of the reasons. Samsung will instead focus on so-called QLED TVs.

The best empirical evidence I've seen comes from a website that's been running oleds on stress tests and realworld, and it doesn't look good.

I would love to be able to convince myself to get an oled, but this has put me right off....

Rtings 5oled burn test

My current LG led is going well after 12 years , I couldn't bear to have a TV with a potential lifespan of 2 years.

There's probably years of life left in your Plasma. Mine is 12 years old and shows absolutely no signs of any picture degredation.

Perhaps keep the Plasma going for a few more years to allow time for Micro LED TVs to be mas produced and for prices to drop (hopefully fairly rapidly)

"Our stance remains the same, we don't expect most people who watch varied content without static areas to experience burn-in issues with an OLED TV."

Why does that put you off ?

Aren't all OLED screens made by LG.

Samsung is actually trying to make QD-OLED TVs as we speak.
Is the E9 worth the extra £450? I've read the speakers are much better.

Probably not if all you are looking for is better sound. You could buy a soundbar that'd blow the E9's sound out of the water for less money.

The upcoming LG SN11RG 7.1 Dolby Atmos soundbar, which includes wireless upfiring rear speakers sounds just the ticket.

Kids leaving the Xbox on, watching news channels, sports.....

Believe me, I'd love to own an oled for the film's I watch, but I'm worried the kids will ruin it.

I've trained mine to shout "screen burn " if a static image is on the screen for more than s few minutes.
Mine is fine after 2 and a half years of frequent use. Oled TVs are great under certain circumstances. You have screen savers, don't watch news channels or games/shows with static images
Waiting on my one to "burn" after more than two years. . I detect a funny smell though...

Sometimes when an unfolding news story occurs, one can't help but to stay tuned in for a while. How long can you safely watch a news channel or a static image of a radio channel on an OLED before it becomes a problem?
now its for £1,099.00. instead still better go C9
