Someone pointed out the other day that new models come out with very little discernible difference from the previous models

I will throw my hat in the ring now and say what I think.

All software and hardware companies are getting like the FIFA games.
The new yearly version comes out and it looks just the same with some small updates.
Phone manufacturers are the same. New version out and update it for 2 years. Then make you buy the new model, because they stopped making their own updates for android.
Just put the hardware in that will compensate for 4k HDR, write decent software for it, put it in the telly and SELL IT TO US FINISHED. Then just send unobtrusive updates over FTA
How hard does it have to be?

Rule of thumb when buying a TV
If it covers all the connections you need, buy it
If you like the look of the picture, buy it.
If there's not lots of cables to come out of it and stops the wife moaning, buy it.
If it does what YOU want it to do, don't listen to the vestel brothers, nit brigade or the fald cavalry, BUY IT

Yeah, you were wrong last week and you’re still wrong today. It’s not glass on glass - it’s picture on glass. All LG OLED’s display their picture on glass. The little bit of glass that sticks out underneath your TV might look cool but does not change the image quality whatsoever: rtings.com/tv/tools/compare/lg-c8-vs-lg-e8/600/608

In fact, the C8 actually appears to be thinner with a slightly smaller bezel so it could be argued which one is more aesthetically pleasing

Finally, all reviews say that moving the soundbar to the back of the panel has unfortunately reduced the quality of the sound compared to the E7. Still maintain you’d get better results from a separate soundbar

You bought a great TV but you can stop pretending that you have better image quality than C8 owners. You don’t

One last time: picture on glass does not affect image quality. C8, E8 and W8 all have identical panels with identical image quality. Post me one credible piece of evidence that says otherwise if you can find it?

Personally I’d save the money, get a B8/C8 and spend the difference on a discrete sound solution. The soundbar in this is supposed to be a little underwhelming

That's the kind of thing which was said about plasma tvs.
I bought a plasma and have owned it for almost 10 years.
I watch a lot of youtube (sometimes not in full screen), so there should be some form of image burn, where the videos are listed on the right hand side.
The tv has no burn in.

I also read on avforums and very few, if any have experienced screen burn.

I am beginning to think that image burn is something made up by LCD fans, who know that the tech is old and outdated, so are now clutching at straws.

I have also noticed that these TV threads are turning into battle grounds.

Quality stuff I don’t wall mount because I’m renting. My current 5.1 setup is just a temp thing. When I buy a house this year I’ll be going wall mounted with a full receiver and ATMOS setup. Still waiting for proof on your inaccurate burn in statements..........

It is real and can happen. See images below from Rtings burn in tests. As you can see though, you really have to torture it with stuff like CNN and it doesn’t start to appear until around 4000 hours in. The screens showing varied content aren’t showing signs of burn in or reduced brightness so far. Also worth watching this video for more detail:


I also had a plasma for 5 years and switched to OLED. No signs of burn in on either set so far (touch wood)

Sorry about all the daft arguing folks. Just feel it’s necessary to point out bad information when people are spending over £1000 on a TV. That post above about burn in was incorrect and irresponsible

I’ll leave the arguing with Paddy as I’m clearly banging my head against a wall

Can anyone comment if this TV would be ok in a conservatory (from a screen brightness perspective)? It has shutters on the windows but is obviously still quite light, though there won’t be any direct sunlight in to it at the times I’ll be watching
Dolby Atmos requires 7 speakers plus a sub? Two of those speakers fire upwards or better yet you have them installed in the ceiling. How then can a TV be Dolby Atmos alone?
Still too expensive but amazing piece of tech none the less... welcome to the future.

No. Cumulative effect.

No
Lol, this thread is hilarious, please can I join in the hypocrisy where everyone states what's best is what they got?!

At the turn of the year I got the B8 to which i know none of you will be able to tell the difference in picture quality compared with c/e8
and for the price difference I paid to this deal, I purchased a low profile (fits in TV stand) Atmos AVR and bookshelf 5.1.2 speakers 😋

NB- italics represent the flippant nature of this thread
I've been looking at the E series for the upgrade in sound. I have my old (& trusted) Technics 5.1 hifi, but hardly use it. Main usage at the minute is stuff for the kids & gaming for myself & Netflix & the like when I'm chilling with the missus. Ordinary TV audio is perfectly fine for the kids, unless I'm watching with them (music videos on youtube/films) & ideally I'd sort the hifi out, though tbh laziness/forgetfulness counters this. I use headphones when gaming or films, etc. with the missus - the E offers me that inbetween..., better than my current GT60 & no need for the ramp up in sound through the hifi, or any extra apparatus. I have heard that the E8 is a step down in audio quality over the E7, so I'm tempted to wait it out & see how the E9 fairs in price this time next year. I'm also looking at Panasonic's GZ2000 for the same reasons.

As for burn in, I have no issues at all with my 2013 Panasonic plasma & the newer OLED sets are better kitted out to avoid the issue, so unless you really mistreat it, it really shouldn't be an issue. & as someone eluded to in here, a lot of it is scare mongering by the LCD brigade.

Also, check out HDTVTest on youtube. He's really informative & is really rather funny. He may also get you a smidge off this price if you say his name when contacting Crampton & Moore, as they sponsor a lot of his videos (same with Richer Sounds).

No. Cumulative effect.


Tests have shown that any cumulative affects are mitigated by brightness control and are eradicated by TV tools such as pixel refresher.
Most burn in / perm burn in / ghosting is caused either by a static image left on (not cumulative) or by the highest brightness of regularly watched 4K films...
Tests have proved this...so once again for anyone with 2018 models using these under “normal use” who are not gamers will probably not see any issues.
