Yeah the 49" SK8500 was definitely £679 for Black Week at Currys. Funny is before it was at £879 but now it's at £999. So either they will drop it to higher than £679 for Boxing Day or - probably more likely - they'll advertise it on TV as a 40% off deal to attract the masses. Ive seen it side by side with the XF90 - the Sony is better but it's not worth the extra £250-300 for casual Sky HD and steaming for me. I guess it all depends on your useage.
My bad. Got my wires crossed.
The SK8500 isn't OLED. It's a LCD with full array local ddimming.
Unless cbr-spikes46 means the oled version which is LG 49SK8500PLA. Also been watching this one. But not seen it drop below £999 myself
fwiw in case you didn't see it, the 8500 was £679 on Black Friday, so maybe it may return in New Year sales - i.e. might be good to hold off as it has certainly been cheaper than it is now... https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lg-49sk8500pla-smart-4k-ultra-hd-hdr-with-dolby-vision-679-currys-3109774 i also thought it was a curry's exclusive?
