I disagree with the blurry picture statement. That will be the same for Oled as the screen get bigger as essentially it has the same amount of pixels. This model will have terrible blacks but a VA panel tv won't be terrible just not OLED of black. A Samsung Q9 will not be 50% worst then a OLED far from it
There is alot more difference then 10% between this and a OLED. This LG is a IPS screen so blacks appear grey in dark settings. Has poor contrast between whites and blacks. Has a bad backlighting system that has light bleed. All of these problems are increased because of the larger screen size
I love random stats, I actually believe that the difference in picture from a flagship oled model to LCD being is about 50% Jokes aside, flagship LCD models still suffer with terrible black levels, and panel bleeding . The bigger a screen is in LCD d the more blurry it is, less defined and you need to be at a really good distance to appreciate it. Take the oled everyday.
Now we're talking, thought this would have been a thing at least a year or two back. Roll on the 100" for £1K or £2K

Has to be similar warranty for them to price match
this is £1499 at richer sounds so if you want the 6 year guarantee do a price match with them. they do the earbuds deal as well
Yikes so not even 120hz hdmi 2.0 at 1440p or 1080p Hence why the older mid range better :)
The A1 doesn't do 120hz at all, not just at 4K. Its a 60hz limited panel.
I have the 48CX I am pretty sure the A1 doesn't do 120hz 4K which is key for me as a gamer. A C E are the range. Number (X=ten, 1=eleven is generation) So CX = mid range last year vs A1budget this year. https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/lg-a1-oled-price-release-date-specs-sizes
I mate lesson learned, the cheek of it asking me to pay even more money after 2 faulty sets, told them too organise a collection for this TV I’ll have a refund.
Just get a refund mate and save up for a new one. If the price is too good to be true it is for a reason.
DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER! I got an LG OLED 55 CX Grade C from this seller last week for £685, 1st Set arrived with a fault image attached, 2nd set that arrived after an exchange just flickers at random points. Absolutely shocking. Messaged seller for a 2nd time about 2nd set been faulty and they replied they don’t have any more CX models in stock. I pointed out they had a 48” version in stock according to their eBay page and was told I’d need to pay the difference of £132 since it’s on sale at £819. Absolutely shocking service. Wouldn’t recommend them to anyone! Both did turn up looking new but faults say otherwise. I thought it was shocking how they advised me to pay even more money after receiving 2 faulty sets. Joke seller. Edit: After a power hard reset on the 1st set, this fault did disappear but I wasn’t willing to take the chance on this set as that doesn’t look normal to me, looks like a fault cable inside the TV or something. 2nd set even worse just flickers at random points like the screen backlighting is about to go. Poor.
Refurbished C grade OLED from eBay with three month warranty. What could possibly go wrong? (horror)
It's basically a firestick on steroids. Opens kodi in a couple of seconds... I have the older model (no upscaling AI stuff) but I really don't need it so I'm good.
I'd be interested to hear more about shield TV. Heard about it but costs so much more than a Firestick HD.
Gor an LG with webos. The apps at at the bottom. Not sure if the newer models are different I mainly use a shield TV though and no ads to be found. On the bedroom I have a tv with android tv but has a lot of ads...
No, literally Samsung's own interface. They push adverts at you now on the bottom bar. So annoying. Tried blocking various Samsung URLS via my router but only works for a while before more ads appear.
What kind of adverts you get? Is it because its android tv? I'm getting fed up with android tv. I delete all channels and suggestions and got a suggestion all the time to add them back on
Just went to Straiton/Edinburgh branch and none here unfortunately. No sure I want to drive all the way to the weeg to find out they are sold out.
4k with Dolby vision
Hi are you watchin 4K versions or standard hd versions?
Absolutely agree.... Normally would be happy with richer sounds, or my go-to company for white goods - John Lewis because of the service..... However and its a big one..... When I was looking at OLEDs, they were both explicit that they did not cover screen burn, which to be honest is my only concern...... I even asked if there was an upgrade to cover and it the time was told there was not..... Costco on the other hand take a very customer focussed approach Hope this helps, but please do check with JL & RS as maybe policies have changed...

So how soon after ordering do they give you the 20% credit ? If I buy now on credit, and have the money ready to pay.. do i have to wait a year?
Exactly the CX also has a feature that moves the pixels around the screen to help prevent burn in as well, it’s really not an issue unless your careless
My CX actually actively Dims the panel if left static for any period of time, there's an option to turn off the screen without shutting down to standby and if using some streaming Apps it switches to screen saver. Plenty of preventative measures in place on these now to mitigate the risk of burn in. Highly recommend
Newer sets yes, older leds have a risk, like I said I have an Samsung led tv about 6 years old, and it specifically says about burn in on the manual, but I agree it’s massively less than any of the led TVs. Samsung specifically say there qleds don’t, don’t mention about there other range. That said the lg oled has a number of technologies built in to help reduce any potential burn in, as long as your careful and don’t leave a static imagine on, the chances of actually getting burn in on the CX is extremely minimal.
That's no excuse mate you can leave an LED set on for hours with a static logo and it's fine but I wouldn't dare do that with an OLED, it's clear OLED's have some fragility and need looking after by the very nature of what you just said Samsung cover burn in on their sets for 10 years because they knew OLED's had issues with it so use it as a sneaky marketing ploy to get at LG etc I didn't comment to bash OLED's anyway and I like them enough to possibly want another one before Micro LED but in short I stand by what I say I wouldn't go near one without burn in cover I'm really tempted to get a CX tbh
I think this is a great deal; however, QLED is not a waste at least if you buy higher end QLEDs. I have both an OLED (Phillips POS9002 only about 20 nits below the CX) and a QLED ( Samsung Q90T). The Q90T is a very good TV. OLED fan boys really do ignore the negitve stuff of OLED and just focus on the "Blackest Blacks" and infinite contrast bit. The problem is the blacks are sometimes too black (Black Crush). OLED can't do near black as well as a well QLED - look it up, it is an inherent problem with the technology. The blacks are very good in the Q90T with minimal blooming - you have to look for it or be ultra sensitive to it. I think the cheaper QLEDs aren't great and do suffer with blooming but I hardly notice it on the Q90T. I personally hate blooming especially from side lit models so would pick up on it. I love both my TVs but for slightly different reasons. There is a reason QLED sets sell and it isn't because people who buy them are all just stupid and conned. There are plenty of professional reviewers who have one for daytime viewing and before someone says "Well modern OLED is quite capable of daytime viewing" etc, so is QLED capable of nighttime viewing. Just each is slightly better in a certain circumstance. Both technologies are maturing and much closer to each other than before.
Nobody has any reason to waste money on a qled now… oled is so cheap qled should die now along with other lcd displays
I got this TV last week to replace a decade-old plasma and it literally blows it out the water. Nightmare to unpack mind you; I chose to lift it using the foam blocks... this panel is so razer thin it made me anxious.
Odd because if you read your warranty it’ll clearly see screen retention is not covered. Well done for getting it replaced though but I wouldn’t bet for Currys to replace every screen burn TVs.
Just a personal preference, no particular model or retailer in mind. I have a model from the FZ range, however I believe that in the price bracket, pound for pound that the Panasonic OLED range gives the best picture quality. Others however, may disagree.
No longer available
Panasonic model and retailer please?
I should stop coming on this site... just took delivery of a Panasonic 65 Oled and now I’m thinking of buying one of these too for another room (lol)

they do offer paypal though so not sure about those reviews, having said that, theres no actual positive reviews either and i was offered a 30% off sign up, sounds too good to be true
The Panasonic is £ 898 at Severn oaks electrical with 5 year warranty.
Thanks. John Lewis declined to price match them since the code isn't visible on the website but they do offer £100 giftcard and I have £250 with them in vouchers. I can try RS to price match PRC as well, see what they say. Decisions Decisions.
I have this and use it for work and it’s been great. The extra screen space has been so handy!
Yep. HDMI assuming your laptop has a HDMI port.
Then it’s not for you. There’s a myriad of examples of why these are great for “work” such as reference images and your “work” side by side with plenty of room There are many more better examples as well. I use this for “work” and it’s handy ;)
What cable would I need to use this with a laptop and put the laptop screen onto the monitor? Would it be HDMI?
Had this for a while. Not at all good for productivity. It’s essentially a widened 24” 1080p monitor.
