    I still dont understand why the extra 10" for a 65" TV is so more expensive.

    Price points for 55" OLED's seem reasonable, but the price scales up disproportionately for 65's

    •  

      I completely agree. I was holding out for ages trying to squeeze the price of the 65 down but in the end bit the bullet and went the 55.

        55" is a good size! Perfect for most lounge rooms.
        me trying to justify not getting a 65"

        Nah but for real I'm happy with 55" but the bigger the better, so long as you can afford it.

        • +3 votes

          I thought 55" was the perfect size as well.

          Until I got a 65".

          I CANT GO BACK.

          Hence why I bought a 65P7 ULED for $1600 for the new house to tide me over until OLED's become more reasonably priced.

          @nedski:
          I love my 55" C8 but I do sometimes longingly look at it wishing I could have afforded its big bro. Mainly due to upgrading from another 55 and that always being the plan. To be fair, going the LCD to save $2500 is not a bad call

    • +13 votes

      From 55" to 65" doesn't sound like a big difference, but screen area is actually 40% larger. Using this deal as an example, the 65" is about 56% more expensive. So it's only disproportionately more expensive by about 16%.

      That seems reasonable considering it would be disproportionately more expensive to manufacture, economies of scale (55" would sell in higher quantities), etc.

      •  

        depending on your living/media room setting really, if you're sitting close to the screen yes it doesn't matter. - it only matters to you is the price, you think it's not worth the 10" jump :p

    •  

      same i would love a 75 inch OLED they want 11-12k for it!!!!!!!!!!!

      •  

        $9990 if you shop around

    •  

      and add $8000 extra for another 12" to 77".

      •  

        or buy 2 x 65 and voila! 130"! …lol

        • +1 vote

          Not quite, you'd need to buy 4 x 65s to get 130"

          2x65 is going to be either:
          an ultra widescreen ending up about ~118" and a ratio of 32:9
          or
          an extra tall screen with a diagonal of ~85" with a ratio of 16:18

        •  

          @m13:… :( maths fail… Lol

      I'd guess that it's mainly an 'economy of scale' thing. They're probably producing and selling more 55"s than 65"s, which is driving the price of the 55" model down through increased production, volume distribution etc.

    •  

      the price scales up disproportionately

      That's because you're comparing the price increase to the diagonal screen measurement increase when a better comparison would be the increase in screen area.

      • +3 votes

        Correct.

        55" = 8339cm²
        65" = 11647cm²

        It's amazing to think there is 40% more screen with what seems like a marginal diagonal increase

          This thread is a good example of the poor maths standard in Aussie schools.. .

        •  

          @mlburnian:

          The calculation above is correct.

        •  

          Yes it's a squared calculation so multiplied not additional.

          Additional weight too = additional freight cost and two person handling at every stage from production to front room.

          @Eeples: I was referring to comments about disparity between 55 and 65 pricing

      •  

        How does the price difference compare for LCD/LED 55" vs 65" TVs? I don't think the gap is as wide as it is for OLEDs!

    •  

      How about the ~$8k price jump from the 65 to the 77!

    •  

      Check 75" price..and it will surprise you.

  •  

    Are you sure this has free postage with Plus? I can't see it on the listing

    •  

      No you're right, my understanding of Plus wasn't quite on the money.

  •  

    Not meaning to attract any kind of innuendo but why does an extra 10 inches cost so much more?

    Edit: Nm Green Man schooled me.

  •  

    Anyone have any real world advice on whats better, I been reading the Panasonic OLEDs are getting better reviews?

    • +3 votes

      All roads of research led me to LG. The Sony's seemed to have better upscaling but overall there wasn't a whole lot in it.

      •  

        Sony hasn't released any new tech this year. Last year it was close but the LG is better this year as far as I'm aware.

    • +2 votes

      Too close to call Sony V LG V Panasonic OLED. Went through several reviews, but none emerged as a clear winner.

      Finally bought the Pana 65" OLED for $3350 from HN in March this year (incl. delivery + an extra $300 cashback in HN vouchers which I used to buy a Pana 4K blu ray player). Very happy with the ease of installation & picture quality. There is no Dolby Vision or Dolby Atmos support on the Pana, didn't bother me.

    •  

      The thing about OLED tvs at the moment is that because the panels are all identical, the difference all comes down to any extra features in software, or design.

      Differences will come down to personal choice, with no objective winner.

      Check for:
      - Design (the physical appearance, and what you like better or what suits your existing furniture)
      - Upscaling (depending on if you will be feeding it FTA, 720p, 1080p, or 4K.)
      - Input lag at different resolutions (if you game, and depending on what console - 1080p may have different lag to 4K, with one set being faster at 1080p and another faster at 4K.)
      - Warranty and after sales support reputation.
      - Software features like autodimming of static logos (such as FTA) to avoid rapid pixel degradation (burn in effect).

      But ultimately, there isn't such a variance as there is with LED technologies, as there is a single source of OLED panels at this size (LG), whereas there are countless of sources for LCD panels.

  •  

    The only thing with the C8 is that stand. Looks so bulky / ugly. Will have to go in store and see it in real life I guess.

    Any of you who already have one… is the stand ugly/bulky in real life?

    • +3 votes

      You mean this one right? I have absolutely no beef with the stand, but admittedly I don't remember the last TV I looked at and thought the stand was ugly.

      • -1 vote

        Yeah that’s it. It seems just too much. There is even the same reflection off it in your photo that there is in the marketing shots on LGs website.

        I much prefer there just being “feet” type stands on it. That stand just dominates the bottom of the TV. It’s subjective though I guess.

        Unfortunately mounting it wouldn’t be an option for me.

    •  

      mount it :)

    Is there any big different for the c7 and c8? Planning to get either with the c7 being $300 cheaper

    • +2 votes

      I was originally sold on the significantly cheaper B7 until I heard about the Black Frame Insertion added to the 8 series. This is used to lower the stuttering of a moving image and was a big enough draw for me to spend more. Watch this then this for a better understanding.

    •  

      Interested, where did you find a C7 still?

    •  

      I'll also note that I think you're mad going the C7 if there's only $300 in it. Look into BFI.

      There's this option instead from appliancecentral with the PENNY5 voucher code $2,631.50 + $59 shipping.

  •  

    that looks tempting man OLED will soon be the new standard… soon

    •  

      Maybe.

      OLED isn't without its drawbacks and there are other technologies on the horizon.

      LED isn't dead yet either, with microdimming being introduced to the point that each pixel has its own individual led backlight, which should allow for the black levels of OLED with the brightness and dynamic range of LED (remember that Dolby Vision is mastered for a display of 4000nits brightness, which no tv on the market can do, but LED can so significantly brighter than OLED can, and with no pixel degradation).

      Quantum Dots, although they are used in QLED at the moment, that isn't their final form, and a final application would be identical to OLED (that is, individual self-emitting pixels), but without the potential for pixel degradation.

      So many advancements on the horizon, it will be interesting to see how the market will look in 5 years.

        LED isn't dead yet either, with microdimming being introduced to the point that each pixel has its own individual led backlight ..,

        should be: “LCD isn't … led backlight, …” since LCD is the panel type. All LCD panels are now led backlit as CCFL backlight is relegated to history.

        Kudos for mentioning Quantum Dots - still experimental, emissive version is the most promising general use screen technology.

      definitely last longer than 3D

    Can anyone comment on the LG UHD TV's? Looking at something a little less pricey than the OLED's and saw videopro have the UHD 65UK6540PTD available for around $1600 after the 20% discount… Im struggling to find a reliable review online. If there is another TV that anyone can recommend, 65" around the $1600-2300 range id love to hear from you. Will be used mostly for Foxtel (new 4k box), Apple TV streaming and Xbox One S. Thanks

    Edit: Found some reviews online for the 65UK7550PTA which sounds like a better option for a little more of an outlay…

  • +1 vote

    Ive wanted this TV for ages but yet to actually buy it. Now Im starting to think it isnt worth the extra $$$ considering the options. Oled will need to come down in price or adapt a new cheaper tech.

  •  

    How does this compare with Samsung Q7 series? LG doesn't have one connect box does it?

  •  

    Both models show out of stock

  •  

    can anyone share a tax invoice?

    •  

      If you are looking to use it for price match, it will likely show the full price before discount.

    Any one else waiting for HDMI 2.1 - gamer here, I want 4k 120hz and am willing to pay for it.

    •  

      You could get that in a Monitor now, such as the x27. 4k 144hz HDR. But only 27 inches.

      I'm waiting for a decent native 4k projector with HDR and low input lag, that isn't a $10k+ Sony model, to appear.

      •  

        Whoooah pretty. And good to know.

        But I'm keen on hdmi2.1 because I understand it means there's no need for g sync anymore, and g sync added a 300 to 500 dollar premium on today's monitors.

        Maybe I'm wrong.

  •  

    Not sure on it killing GSYNC. From what I understand they were looking at bringing a 65 inch GSYNC TV!

    It's more a case of "If you are below 100hz, GSYNC is amazing. Above 100hz it is barely noticeable, because the job it does of matching Send picture to displayed picture is circumvented by the refresh rate being just dam fast and overwriting any mismatch before you notice it".

    I have a 100hz GSYNC ultra wide panel for a couple years now and I still haven't seen anything better (gaming wise). Which is annoying as I have the upgrade bug.

      Not yet. I'm guessing they didn't have enough in stock. Wish they'd give some sort of ETA at least.
