Use code 200WC to get £200 off

I have the C8 version & it's the dogs. not sure what the difference is but seems a good price for a 2018 65" OLED.
18 months interest free available too.

Get me a CRT, a scart lead, and a DVD boxset of Danger Mouse and I'm sorted.
The C8 has near on 1000cd/m2 nits brightness, 3gb ram, pixel level dimming, the new A9 image processor, ODE ((object depth enhancer)) and a wider, fatter, not so wobbly stand
Not the same as the C8. In 2017 there was no difference between B7/C7 but this year there’s a gap. C8 has a faster processor for better upscaling of low res content. Can also do dynamic tone mapping for bright HDR in game mode. Not sure if the B8 can (not saying it can’t - just haven’t seen confirmation yet). Personally I’d pay the extra for the C8. I think that can be had for £2800 with the current LG Cashback offer?

Edit: still a great TV! Just my personal preference. I think most people here probably still watch a ton of content that’s HD or sub-HD so the better upscaler is worth the price increase IMO

This actually seems like a good price for an 8 series. Heat

C8 version is cheaper @ 2,400 with cashback
C8 this time. I have b6 and will be keeping it for years to come

£2795 after cashback


65C8 is £2,900 at C&M, Reliant Direct, Peter Tyson, etc.

2,900 - 500 cashback == £2,400.

How did you come up with £2795?
As other have said, the C8 is a much better deal with the cashback on offer at the moment.
Don't do it. Get the C8.
Dat is bootiful

Just because it’s expensive? It can still be a deal for an expensive item

65 inch OLED is exactly what I’m on the lookout for but I’m waiting for them to come down to £2,000.

Ok thanks. However Reliant direct and Peter Tyson are not listed in the participating retailers on the LG cashback website.
But both have the cashback banner on the item page so I am not sure...

Thought that if there's a saving to be made on any item it should be shared, regardless of overall cost. Isn't that the point?
Is there an extra £500 off from the manutacture ?
Doest it display full 2160 vertical lines of SOURCE per frame, or its "dynamic resolution" still competes FullHD displays, lol ? Since FCAT-ed technical reviews showed up, big companies put many effort to remove their tests from the web, really interesting...

Nope! There are people who call this a deal.
Considering I have just bought the C8 and the SJ9 soundbar, its well worth the purchase. The TV doesn't need much calibration as the preset settings are excellent such as the ISF Experts (dark and bright ive chosen bright and made a few tweaks).

Much better buying it from John Lewis at £3295 - £500 cashback (£2795) for the 5 year warranty and peace of mind. I got the spouse partner discount as well of £395.40 which will bring it down to £2399 once I get the cashback.

Looks good.... would you mind measuring the footprint of the stand please..... really just the length as it looks pretty long 600mm perhaps?

the TV Stand is 40" long (116cm) and narrows down to 36"(94cm). For the soundbar I have connected to HDMI ARC as that's where you get the full surround and Dolby Atmos

C8 is better, and not far of the price of the B8.

True. It depends how you save money - I'm a tight ar'se who has saved like hell for 20 years.
It's significantly changed my financial position where I'd say I'm now fairly well off (depending on your scale of measurement; I'm no millionaire yet).
But I'm still a mean tight ar'se, hence my presence here

65" TV would need a large stand! I have a 70" glass table (needs 2 people to pick It up) so it sits beautifully on it.
I wouldn’t touch an Oled with a barge Pole. If you watch only Movies and non Logo saturated Channels. Then this technology is for you. Otherwise steer well clear. Screen burn. image retention still a major issue with this technology .Plenty of forums with angry customers who spunked £3000 - £4000 on high end Oled TVs and have had a battle getting replacements and refunds for their burned in panels.

My advice, Sony 65ZD9BU is still one of the best TV on the market and can now be bought for the same price as this Oled .Many say it is the “Oled Killer”.At least you can watch all the Football and Sky News without worrying about image retention, and bricking your panel.
I just got the c8 version for £3k from curry’s. -£500 cash back offer. So total price £2500. It’s definitely worth getting the c8 over the b8 for the improved processor in my opinion.

Currys list price it £3300, I got price match with John Lewis at £3k then just need to wait for the £500 cash back.

Cash back offer ends early Aug
