Great TV. Would opt for this over an LG B9 or C9 any day.
Wondering if this will be the BF price for everyone and Hughes has got in early.
BF Codes appear to be for selected products only.
Best price so far?

Why?

Would also like some clarification, I was under the impression you would only go for this model over the LG B9/C9 if the price saving was decent (always bought Panasonic myself but planning to go with LG OLED this time)

@jameshargadon

The Panasonic supports all formats of 4K, HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos whereas LG are missing HDR10+.

Also LG's have had issues with crushing blacks whereas Panasonic are one of the first manufacturers to solve these problems.

Check out HDTVTest videos on YouTube. He sums it up best.

Also, I am not saying one is better than the other. One is just better for me.

The Panasonic does but have HDMI 2.1 but I have little need for that.

They’re both very similar spec. LG has HDMI 2.1 which might prove important in a couple of years (significant increase in bandwidth over 2.0) and the Panasonic has all four HDR formats including HDR10+. I personally am leaning towards the LG as I really like the magic remote control. Picture quality looks amazing on both. displayspecifications.com/en/…39c
Incidentally Quidco showing the code BF80 (£80 off items over £1000) and 2% cashback. I tried the code in a basket and it doesn’t work. The listing apparently has to carry a green BF marker so it’s item specific. 2% still worth taking
Thanks for the info @RYANdeals . It's a tough choice to be sure. I want to try playing PC games on the LG, so the G-Sync support is nice. Not sure if the Panasonic has that. Either way, it'll be one or the other. Just need to wait till the deals get as low as they are going to go
What about warranty? Can’t find is it 5 years or 1 year thanks

I'll check that out. So do you think the Panasonic has a better picture quality at highest format output?

Also, does it compete with the LG in terms of input lag/response time & refresh rate? Apparently G-Sync has also been pushed through a software update to the LG models as well, would the Panasonic come close in these respects?

I've heard LG aren't great at updates past current models, how are Panasonic with this?
Panasonic beats LG easy. As for Samsung....lol
Already this price at John Lewis
Panasonic has better colour calibration against LG. I have last year's Panasonic oled and straight out the box no picture fiddling needed. Panasonic just know how to set up TVs properly.
Am hoping that one day my 14 year old Panny plasma will give up and I can move to oled....

It's probably worth £60 now, bin it and upgrade 😁

Same one i have, what's the difference this year, just Dolby vision? Which I don't really like anyway tbh. Makes images too dark.

Yeah that's probably it. Not missing it to be honest.
Would be good to know if anyone sees a price in Costco for this. Hoping there will be a price war.. even if it shaves another £50-100 off.

You do realise that LG makes ALL OLED panels, right?

"As of 2019, the only company that produces produces OLED TV panels is LG Display - making 55" to 88" OLEDs that offer the best image quality possible today. LGD is offering its OLED panels to many companies, including LG Electronics, Sony, Panasonic and many other companies." - oled-info.com/ole…-tv

With the B9 currently £200 less than this, I'm at a loss as to why anyone would choose the Panasonic. Don't forget the LG also has the Magic Remote and possibly the best OS on all Smart TVs - WebOS. The B9 also has both FreeView and Freesat tuners.

Yet all the main reviews say the Panasonic is better.

It depends how you define "better". The Panasonic uses the SAME panel as the LG B9/C9; if you were to put this, the LG and Sony in the same room side-by-side with the exact same settings/calibration, any picture differences would be imperceptible/a placebo effect/splitting hairs at this level.

The difference is in the processing. If you somehow perceive the processor in the Panasonic to give "better" results, then that could also just be down to visual preference. Maybe this does have better out-of-the-box processing and calibration, but this is nothing that couldn't be achieved by delving into the settings of the LG.

At this price point, everyone should be doing this to tune the television to their particular tastes and light conditions in their room anyway, irrespective of the manufacturer.

Again, these are all exceptional televisions. For me, losing webOS and twin tuners (FreeView and FreeSat) is a dealbreaker; at £200 less, it's an even easier decision.
