”A big and beautiful TV with a vibrant picture rich in detail.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

OLED – the TV gold standard

Highly developed by LG, OLED TV technology remains at the forefront of image quality. Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) TV offers the most advanced picture quality currently available. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

Alpha 9 processor – a new reference in picture processing
New to this exciting LG TV is the powerful Alpha 9 processor. With increased processing power, Alpha 9 enhances motion handling for smoother images. Object-based contrast is also improved, giving sharper, more detailed images. With Alpha 9 you’ll see images with truer realism than ever.

True Colour Accuracy Pro
For even greater realism, True Colour Accuracy Pro increases the amount of data points for colour. This makes flesh tones more accurate, landscapes more natural and animations more vivid. No matter what the genre, True Colour Accuracy makes it more life-like than ever.

The widest range of HDR support with Active HDR
LG continue their wide range of HDR support with this flexible TV. Advanced HDR by Technicolor offers reference levels of image and colour accuracy. As well as Advanced HDR, this 65" LG TV also offers decoding for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision. HDR10 is widely used on UHD gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Dolby vision-equipped TVs, like this LG, can decode both generic HDR content and content that's specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

High Frame Rate Support via OTT*
High Frame Rate (HFR) support at up to 4K/120fps means the potential for smoother images with incredibly realism. With a variety of films filmed in HFR since the ground-breaking The Hobbit of 2012, this is the future of movie technology. The technology is also available on some TV shows and is especially impressive with sport. *OTT means that HFR is supported Over The Top using apps such as Netflix 4K. It is not available via HDMI inputs on this TV.

Part of the unique ThinQ AI system for effortless control
LG’s unique artificial intelligence system brings together a wide range of products under intuitive control. For your TV this means intelligent voice control and the ability to seamlessly work with third party services from Google and Amazon. The more LG ThinQ AI products you have around the home the more seamless and integrated the control becomes.

webOS Smart system now with Google Assistant
The award-winning LG webOS smart TV system is already one of the most highly-rated in the industry. Powerful but user-friendly, webOS makes Smart TV even smarter. Now featuring Google Assistant, webOS just got even better. Google Assistant is capable of changing the channel and input via voice command. It also integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your TV an even greater source of entertainment.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

Don’t settle for less. Go for the best, with the LG OLED65C8PLA.

Yes, me too!

It also winds me up like you can’t have an RS6 Avant for less than £50k brand new while A6 Avant 2.0 TDI costs around £35k brand new with passable spec!

If you actually own one, you'll see why there is such a difference in cost.

I've got one of these. The image quality is superb. The only downer is you'll find yourself wanting everything in 4k to get the best from it. Having had mine for about 5 months I've now got Prime and Sky Q UHD. The iPlayer 4K content is generally very high quality too, last weekends FA Cup semi on the BBC looked fabulus on it.

Would C8 justify the £500 over the B8?



This is like suggesting would OLED justify £800 premium over QLED Q8.

My answer is no. Others will say £1 million pounds difference would be justified on the basis the image is 0.0000001% better.

Thinking of getting one of these for my spare 'Cinema' room (not that fancy).
While it will be primarily for watching movies ( 4k Discs /Blu-Ray ) we would also spend time watching HD content but will be sitting about 2.2m away.

While I like the idea of the large display for the wide peripheral vision, HD content may not look so good on a large screen at such a short distance.

Any views?

I may go for the 55 inch version.

Why is there such a difference in cost between this and the 2018 Samsung …Why is there such a difference in cost between this and the 2018 Samsung QLED flagship QLED Q8 which was £1199 (but a lot more now)? I do not see it and I am think you would not either, if you actually owned a Q8.I think they are as good as each other. Both have pros and cons, but equivalent. If the Q8 65" was always £1199 I think 65" OLED would be dead if priced at £1999!The difference would have little justification.£1199 was hot deal for a Q8. It may never be repeated. £1999, I do not think is "hot". This is my view and you are entitled to disagree. OLED and QLED are both stunning displays.


Samsung 2018 Flagship was the Q9 actually.
This is a brilliant TV and you just have to read the reviews from the various experts which are freely available on line and on YouTube Yes the price will go lower but when is the question and the reality is that this is the best price currently available.
Heat.

OLED and QLED are completely different panels.

However, B8 and C8 use the same panels. There are feature differences and minor hardware difference too, e.g. different CPU.

I don't think human perceptions and feelings can be quantified to that degree, so I asked a general question.

I know they are different. I have the Q8 QLED.
The point I make is for some people the premium seems too high and is perceived poor value.
They have their own cost-benefit model.
In my model the premium is too high.

Some people believe any premium is justified for a 0.00000001% improvement in their cost-benefit model.
They would vote a million pound premium as "hot".

Not a comparison of any sort i'm afraid, if what I've read is correct the Q8 even with the full array, has only 40 dimming zones, thaty is in no way comparable to an OLED, no matter how good it may appear, 40 zones vs 8,000,000.

what`s a Q and O between friends
Out of interest, has anybody else out there owned a 2015 LG OLED (I have an LG 65 EF950v) and subsequently bought a C8 and seen a marked difference?

I’m unconvinced, because to my eye, my current TV still looks impeccable when feeding it 4K....

Why not compare side by side? Look at the nits. OLED is so dull compared to QLED. OLED may win on blacks but not brightness. Independent reviews indicate they are comparable. Both have advantages and disadvantages.
Owens2000 I was torn between 65 and 55 and went for 65c8. Glad I did. 4k is superb and HD is also good - much better than my old panny.

I have a C8, and prior to this an E6 oled, I can tell you now they are not dull, while not as bright in measurement as an lcd it doesn't need to be, in between my oleds I had a Sony XE94 75 inch, a top end full array lcd set, yes it was crazy bright but being too bright in my opinion and completely spoiled the image alot of the time, lcd tech will always suffer from a backlight of one form or another, this is a negative on image quality, simple as that, oled having no backlight completely negates that and the images they produce is much more natural, helped of course by a massive contrast that lcd just cannot match.

The difference in both sets, and tech, is pretty big in my opinion.

Tech is different. Many independent reviews simply do not conclude the overall picture quality is massively superior overall for either. Time after time they are regarded as on par. I prefer independent reviews than the view of one person.

Totally agree, any one would think he/she works for Samsung!!

I've seen both a QLED and OLED in action, I know which one I preferred, I now own a Panasonic OLED.
Crampton & Moore will probably price match. Heat from me, excellent TV.
Please guys, I keep coming back here to find details about the tv I am interested in but having to find which messages to skip through to get to the valuable stuff due to the bickering and fighting. Please take it offline or to private message if you need to sort something out.
Much appreciated.

Reviews find very little difference in overall display. Both are stunning.
2019 QLED blacks are very close and OLED nits cannot compete with QLED.
Some people watch in bright rooms (multi-task) and QLED may suit them better.
Some watch the same channel all day with a stupid logo displayed that may burn on the OLED.
(Ask an Asian family with elderly members who watch Rishtey all day! - I have seen the burn in with friends. This viewing habit is not usual for the majority, but is for this community).

Have an OLED55E6 for a few years now, coming from a genuine Hitachi plasma (10+ years no burn-in).

It's a big step up.

Only slight drawback was that motion was that bit better on the plasma.

Watch Sky/BBC News with logos on constantly - no burn-in.
Probably because I've adjusted picture settings and brightness to not full whack.
Not sure why max brightness is that important, I don't exactly want a torch in my face :-D

Sorry mate but rather incorrect.

QLED is a rebrand of ancient LCD TV that was and still is worse than plasma. Only Samsung makes this nonsense. This old tech does get very bright, and makes everything thing look over saturated, but some people like them.

OLED is a far superior technology, in most cases better than plasma. Brightness on this tech is life like and as it should be.
Apparently this TV is better than the high end e8!

Both the review on Forbes and Techradar are done by the same reviewer John Archer.

Not saying he is bias but his Samsung reviews are always very very positive and he doesn't address some obvious issues with them. He also tends to review Samsung products well before most others in the industry so can question the time he puts into the reviews and also whether they are based off retail units or what Samsung may specifically supply him with

The only point I make is that QLED and OLED both provide a stunning display. OLED is not miles ahead.

N.B. Micro-LED may even kill off OLED next decade, just as LCD killed off plasma.
Be mad to buy anything now with new TVs being released in the next few weeks which means these prices will drop even further
I hope so, although I suspect some of that has already been factored in to the price drop? Maybe they still have plenty of stock, but I tried to predict price drops last year and they didn’t drop as low I thought they would.

Someone with some common sense! Sometimes these deals turn into an AVForums type discussion. I appreciate the valuable info people provide during the discussions and especially where people point out better models for little or similar money. However talking about Micro-LED has got nothing to do with this deal!:S
