LG 75 Inch TV 75UJ657T $2796 @ JB Hi-Fi

470

I missed out on previous deals for the LG but got a pleasant surprise today when I called JB to confirm price and the salesperson knocked another approx $150 from the current sale price of $2796. However only applicable if you come in store he said.

    This TV $1.28 per square inch whereas a $1 coin is more expensive at $1.33 per square inch so buying this TV actually makes you money.

    Bargain IMHO.

    as mentioned last time beware of rgbw panel

    So confusing, is this better than hisense 75n7?

      Agree. I would actually goto the store and have a look and a play. The LG o/s and remote was what convinced me to get it rather than Samsung or tcl.

      Wouldn't the Hisense N7 have a better picture quality due to their ULED tech, which is similar to OLED. This TV is just LCD. Right?

      I'm waiting for the next 75 Hisense N7 sale…

        LOL I'd like to see LG get out of a warranty claim if their $2796 TV failed after 13 months.

          Yep for sure

          Fair trading let you claim the warranty for a REASONABLE lengthy period.
          Nobody expects $2800 TV would break within 1-2 years. I'd say you can claim upto 3 years.

      Remember you can claim past 12 months. ACL states something like lasting less than a reasonable person would expect. Im guessing you could even claim after 2 years.

        I think you could reasonably expect a tv to last at least 5 years really.

        Who would pay $2500+ for a tv if you will only have to replace it in 2 years?

      •  

        I had a terrible experience with LG and their incorrect interpretation of ACL, it's put me off the brand

        •  

          Oh right, Australian Consumer Law. I thought you guys were talking about the brand ACL. Isn't there a generic Chinese TV brand called ACL or something similar? Or maybe I'm thinking of anterior cruciate ligament…

          Edit: I was thinking of TCL

          I’m currently going through the same experience with my 3 year old Sony. When I brought up ACL, the Sony rep told he “didn’t want to dwell on that” and “I won’t be discussing that any further with you”. That was it. End of discussions.

          The problem is, who do you get to enforce it? The ACCC will only give general advice and will not take any actual complaints and the state “Fair Trading” will only accept complaints about retailers and not manufacturers.

          http://consumerlaw.gov.au/the-australian-consumer-law/enforc...

          That site shows who enforces it. Not sure which state youre in as each state has a different body to enforce it. In WA, for example, i imagine you use the contact they have on the website below and discuss with them about how to pursue it further? I think you would write your complaint about sony australia as they are the representative body of sony.

          heres the WA site; https://www.commerce.wa.gov.au/consumer-protection/consultat...

          I’m in QLD. I’ve spoken to them and they will only accept complaints through the website and only about retailers that are based in QLD. As I’m dealing directly with the manufacturer, they claim they are unable to do anything.

        •  

          Yeah Sony are xxxxers to deal with. You should really try to deal with the retailer if possible.

          If it was an expensive set I would pay them to look at it, get the repair price - only correspond with them formally in writing, but call and annoy everyday. Record calls and tell them you are recording the call and that you want a remedy under consumer guarantees provisions of the ACL.

          After giving reasonable period of time, pay to have the tv repaired. Take them to small claims to recover all costs. Make sure you keep a log of time used on calls, arranging repair, transportation costs.

          Only way to get your soul back. Rage against the machine.

    BIng lee seem to have matched it (a dollar cheaper infact)

    Must have a really large lounge/Tv room to consider this. I remember a rep telling me once, optimal viewing is achived when seated 3 times the distance from the screen as the screen. So in this case approx 6m.

    Just got this yesterday (bought from Videopro Online when the 20% ebay sale was on, price was $2547 including delivery, not including cashback rewards etc.).

    Can confirm this is an excellent TV. Takes a while to power on but otherwise very responsive.

    Upscaling is a bit of a problem but it's expected of a 75 incher. Just ensure you stick to HD quality or better content .

  •  

    I was led to believe the majority of tvs are uhd. Some monitors and cinema are 4k.

  •  

    Whats the best 75" going around?

    Just a note regarding JB Hi Fi price negotiations. The staff get commissions and from my experience they will tell you any lies they think they can get away with.
    I negotiated deal on their own brand 'Soniq' tv a few years back now. The first couple of time/stores I asked said "there is no way we can reduce it, its already cheap as possible, we dont make any money on these etc" .
    Jb hifi store I ended up buying it from, had about 5 other tv retailers in the same small suburb, and I had told them i am going round to all, and am looking to buy a 40 inch , full HDTV today. Jb hifi in that suburb reduced the price $50 . Went back and spoke to exact same worker, same store, week or 2 after (asking for a friend) and the worker that took $50 off the $500 Tv a week before , lied and said "There is no way we can possibly reduce this tv" lol.
    I would not trust or believe them at all. Buyer/negotiator BEWARE !!!

      I worked at jb a few months ago. The thing is we did all the work to organise the sale, and actually sell the product. So if a salesperson says I can't go lower it's because they are getting paid for the work they have done for you which as far as I was concerned was well deserved. Also a side note the minimum price we can drop to varies depending on how low a specific management team is willing to let you go.

      •  

        But there was no sales work done in my circumstance. I had $500 cash which I won on a free poker thing at club.
        I went out looking for best deal I could find that day for about 40 inch Tv $500 or less. I did my own research on all televisions involved, only 'assistance' the saleperson gave, was to negotiate on price.
        Also, if it was the stores management team that decides their minimum price for each store, that does not explain why the exact same worker in the exact same JB hifi store, lied and said the speil to me later "we cannot possibly reduce this tv". He must have forgotten that I was the guy he sold for $50 cheaper week or so before. Not blaming him for forgetting me, but I do blame him for blatantly lying to my face in order to make more commission for himself.

  •  

    a JB Hi-Fi near me has the 65" of this on a further reduction of $1896, I think it's for the display model.
    anyone think this is worth it or what?

  •  

    Is this deal still on?
