”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.

Love tv threads, they are hilarious.

If someone likes a tele and it does the job they want for £100 or £3000, who gives a sh*t
People really need to get out more instead of arguing over who’s viewing of coronation street is best.
Voted hot. Wish I needed a new tv.

What 65 inch Samsung is £571.42?



I paid £566,39 via a John Lewis price match 2 weeks ago for UE65NU7400, which were Mothers day gifts!
The lowest was £524.75, but JL would not price match as this was an internet only deal.
These deals have gone now. I monitored over 1 month and started the price match at £699, down to £679 and then £566.39 with a 5 year warranty. I purchased 3 (one for a friend) and should have purchased the full 10 and sold them!

I got the 65" Q8 QLED for £1199 from Samsung Experience store last December.

I cannot see why this OLED is so much more than the Q8 either. I did view it.

I cannot risk OLED due to screen burn due to someone watching the same channel which displays a logo all day.
I had burn on my old plasma and saw screen burn on an LG OLED at an exhibition.
Channel logos should be banned!
I accept most would not see screen burn. I would due to viewing habits.

It is without a doubt a stunning very clear picture, but I cannot justify the premium asked. I can afford it, but I do not see the added value to a Q8 QLED at the £1199 I paid. This set, in my view, should cost £1199, just over twice UHD LCD.

3.5x is for the Samsung UE65NU7400 that I purchased as Mother's day giifts from John Lewis. Read carefully.
The 65" Q8 QLED was from Samsung Experience store last December for £1199.

I still say a OLED should not be 3.5 x more than a UHD LCD.
I would expect OLED to be double at the most.
I say a QLED should be a similar price to OLED.

I hope this is clear. No change in story at all.

Really! Didn’t you spend quite a while on here moaning about that clearance deal only being available in certain stores for a short time required in store ordering and not being available to everyone due to these store locations. You were quite right previously now you’re talking rubbish trying to compare this set to an inferior NU7400.

Anyway the C8 was available for £1799 on Black Friday so wouldn’t touch them plus the B8 is only £1500. The C8 is not much of an improvement and most probably wouldn’t see the difference.

I am not sure what you refer to. Initially Samsung stores said it was for NHS workers only and finally they were open to all.
Hence, I got a QLED.

I am not comparing the quality of NU7400 to OLED. There is no comparison. OLED is miles ahead.
I just do not believe the level of the premium is justfied, in the same way you do not appear to think the C8 premium is justifed compared to B8.

I do question your reading skills and do so again. I stated in a post that has not bee edited:

"I cannot understand how a 65" LG OLED is still 3.5x the price of 65" Samsung UHD LCD This premium, in my view, is too high".

In my view to an intelligent person this does not mean, "how come 65” OLED can be better than 65” Samsung that’s 3.5x cheaper".
I did not use the word better. I simply indicated I believed the premium for the superior OLED was too high. This is the way a sensible person would interpret it.

So, I question your reading ability and have every right to. I do not need to listen to you.

I have never said QLED is the best. I stated both QLED and OLED are stunning.
I really think, you have problems with your reading ability.


Note: In case you did not understand, the NE65NU7400 is a UHD LCD television.

Like I have said, vote hot (as this is best deal for this TV!) and move on!
Go and find yourself a forum to post your intelligent insights about TVs attracting premium prices and your feelings about that...
Your mind is made up and you got yourself Q8 - enjoy!

I have been living with a Pioneer Kuro plasma for some years, arguably about as good as you could get with picture quality - and cost me loads some years back.
Whilst visiting friends and family, I always noticed how poor the quality of most other tvs were and when others visited us, there were frequently comments about the quality of picture on the Pioneer.
My family are pause addicts and the tv is probably paused for more time than being watched and when I bought it there was a media frenzy about retention/burn to plasma displays.
I have never noticed any retention whatsoever, let alone burn so not going to panic unnecessarily.

Bought the 65C8 on Black Friday for £1999 as someone kindly posted a £400 off voucher so I was a happy chappy.
The tv has settled in now and I have to say that the picture is stunning! Even my wife comments about how realistic things look - even some non 4k stuff. 4k discs are fantastic!!
Again, when visiting friends and family, nothing I have seen compares whatsoever and lots are new tvs. Visitors to us always comment on the picture quality and ask how much and where they can get one.

I can't comment on the QLED vs OLED as haven't seen the QLED running for long but I can't imagine any picture better than this.

The main difference is QLED is very bright, and the colours are stunning.Much higher nits than OLED. I watch with lights on.
Both OLED and QLED are simply stunning displays.
I am not accepting anything you are saying regarding OLED TVs!
How about that?

There is an ignore setting?
Can I go to your profile and make all your future comments disappear from my HUKD app entirely?
Please tell me how to do it! That would be great! 😜

Shame something pushes you to come here and comment on OLED threads where clearly you have already committed to QLED and happy with it!
You won’t see me coming to QLED threads and bashing the technology or price vs OLED vs Quality! As a matter of fact, I have voted HOT loads of QLED deals if the price was right!
I presume you have voted this deal HOT (as it is!) and you are just one of those people that likes to be heard and voice his opinions regardless of whether anyone’s interested in the slightest? As I very much doubt people coming here for OLED deals would be!
Suddenly that ‘ignore user comments’ setting sounds like a blessing with regards to your person! Where is it again?

Better reviewed for image quality but no Dolby Vision support on those models so it’s a pick your poison situation there. Personally, with the wealth of DV content on Netflix and iTunes Movies, lack of DV would be a dealbreaker for me. Thankfully the 2019 Panasonic sets do support it going forwards

I could not find the option to completely ignore your comments so unfortunately I have inadvertently read another of your pointless comments...
As I cannot be bothered to argue the toss with you, I will quote and simply remind you the very comment which started everything just in case you have forgotten how ridiculous it was:

‘I cannot understand how a 65” LG OLED is still 3.5x the price of 65” Samsung UHD LCD This premium, in my view, is too high.’

Still makes me chuckle!
All that happened after that comment, was you trying to dig yourself out of a hole!;)

And on that note, have a nice day and try not to reply anymore as I think you have clearly demonstrated with your first comment your understanding of OLED technology over UHD LCD and the idea of ‘premium’.
Just go away...

Probably because the picture quality is 3.5x better? better then that actually.

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



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.
Would C8 justify the £500 over the B8?
