Not cheap by any use of your imagination. However a £1300 saving over other retailers is a good deal.

Ordered 5 so cheap
The price jump between a 65 and 77 inch TV is crazy.

65 is around £2,000 so you need to spend an additional £3,600 for 12 inches. No way worth it IMO.

Yes but this test's are run for 20 hours a day over a year, with static images. Heres info from the same site you got that from.

CURRENT STANCE (31/05/2019 - 9064 HOURS)Original statement from 11/05/2018: After more than 5000 hours, there has been no appreciable change to the brightness or color gamut of these TVs. Long periods of static content have resulted in some permanent burn-in (see the CNN TVs), however the other TVs with more varied content don't yet have noticeable uniformity issues on normal content. As a result, we don't expect most people who watch varied content without static areas to experience burn-in issues with an OLED TV. Those who display the same static content over long periods of time should consider the risk of burn-in though (such as those who watch lots of news, use the TV as a PC monitor, or play the same game with a bright static HUD). Those who are concerned about the risk of burn-in should go with an LCD TV for the peace of mind.

Note that we expect burn-in to depend on a few factors:

  • The total duration of static content. LG has told us that they expect it to be cumulative, so static content which is present for 30 minutes twice a day is equivalent to one hour of static content once per day.
  • The brightness of the static content. Our maximum brightness CNN TV has more severe burn-in than our 200 nits brightness CNN TV.
  • The colors of the static areas. We found that in our 20/7 Burn-in Test the red sub-pixel is the fastest to degrade, followed by blue and then green.
To see how the results at this 5000 hour point compares to your usage, divide 5000 by the number of hours you watch each type of content per day to find the number of days. For example, someone who plays call of duty or another video game without bright static areas for 2 hours per day may expect similar results after about 2500 days of usage. This corresponds to about 7 years.

We will continue to run this test and collect data, and our stance may change as we obtain more information.

Update 05/31/2019: The TVs have now been running for over 9000 hours (around 5 years at 5 hours every day). Uniformity issues have developed on the TVs displaying Football and FIFA 18, and are starting to develop on the TV displaying Live NBC. 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.
You can buy 4 55" C9s for this money, that's 220" lol
Bought 2 for the outhouse.
I avoided oled because of burn in. I went with a top sony lcd. The g950 series is very good for the money. You could get a 75 inch for around 3k. Lcd get much brighter then oled.

Everyone is different. If you playing games, using as a computer monitor or watching channels with static images. Then LED is the way to go, especially if Samsung master the MicroLED. However for someone like me, who mostly uses it for TV series and movies OLED is the best choice for quality.

You've got it completely wrong Peter.

Only kidding! 🤪.

It all depends on one's viewing habits like you said and what's priority. I think up to 65 inch it's good. Next size up is a crazy premium. Unless money is no issue.

The diagonal measurement is a bit misleading. In terms of surface area its actually 50% bigger.

Also they are harder to produce, ship and benefit from lower economies of scale the larger they get. Hence the significant price difference.

You could apply the same argument wrt value by comparing other sizes as well. The mainstream sizes tend to hit the sweet spot, outside of that the differential climbs. Just a few years ago the gap between 65" and 55" was bigger, but as 65" has become more mainstream that gap has started too close.

I was contemplating the 77C8 deal at Costco until the 65FZ952 deal popped up. 65" works for us, but 77" would be ideal in terms of FOV. If that's important to you and you plan to keep it for years, then it may well be worth it. We'll probably upgrade in a couple of years and were close to getting the 77C8.

I agree, 65" is massive TV in itself. I've only recently gone from a 50" plasma to a 65" OLED. I obviously knew it was bigger, but a 40% additional screen size was a big jump.

If money wasn't an issue, I would buy this as I have a wall big enough, also I have a Monitor Audion Gold 5.1 speakers which gives me a great movie setup.

The reason I posted this, is because their are people on this site who can afford this type of luxury, and might have had an eye on it.

I am not disputing that there are valid reasons for the pricing.

I believe the surface area of a 77 inch is about 35% larger. But the cost difference is about 180% more.

At the end of the day, it does not matter to me. I would never consider spending that kind of money on a tv so this kind of deal is not aimed at me. I would rather get the 65 inch and use the £4,000 saving to go on a few holidays. But that's just me.

It's 1803 sq in versus 2530 sq in, so 40% bigger for anyone interested in the actual numbers.

I'm guessing most shelling out £5k for a TV won't be using the holiday fund Once you get to this level of elective purchases, it's rarely a case of either/or.

Dont do it, dont tempt me back to the dark side
The last time, i went through a ton of hassle and lost £500 because i sold it used after having the screen replaced (C6 burn in after 8 months)
I miss the deep blacks and better motion though
I have a Sony X900E LED at the moment which is a good TV but still suffers from the usual LED issues.

I know that the newer OLEDs have fewer issues but once bitten twice shy

We should all go back to CRTs, life was simpler then

Haters?
The comments in this thread are now under review but i have no idea why, i cannot see any hateful comments.

I commented on my own personal experience with OLEDs and warned others of burn in and another just explained why they went with an LED over OLEDs
Under review?

Someone must have complained to the Mod's they couldn't afford it.

There's no political comments or insults, just the usual OLED vs LED, which is on every TV deal. Either that or it was the CRT comment, maybe someones old computer monitor complained about discrimination?

i guess someone didn't like one of my messages (reported me), i had a mod review that CRT comment before it went live.

OLEDs are great though, just think twice before using one for gaming or as a PC monitor and make sure you leave it in standby at night so it can clean itself.

Its to do with point in the market for a tv size which the public are buying so they crank up production and the pricing between makes the price drop. At the monent best value size is 65" with 75" sales coming up the rails. Was in PC World and there was a lot of 75" on display , when you see the size of them and the small size of a lot of UK homes.
