    Yep, awesome price for an awesome TV. I've got the 65", best TV I've ever owned by a big margin.

    •  

      Hows the motion? been researching about it and that's the only negative but not sure if it only applies to the previous model.

      •  

        Motion on things like panning shots? Improved. Still there, but it's a lot better.
        Otherwise, it's fine. Watching sports is awesome.
        If you have high frame rate stuff it's even better.

        I have this TV motion is fine, never had any issue.

        Reviews I have seen say it only related to the previous model (and that was mostly fixed too in updates).

        •  

          I have the tv.. Sometimes you might notice it.. But it's very rare. I'm also very happy with the tv… Highly recommended. 4k hdr content is awesome.

      I don't mean to be a stickler, but have you owned several 65" TVs from the last year to say it's the best you've ever owned? Or is your previous TV from years ago, in which case, you would hope it's the best TV you've owned.

    Under $2k! Well done

  •  

    This is the exact moment I regret buying the FX800 4 months ago, but hey……can't win them all

    •  

      Is this the Pana LCD/LED? How is your experience so far? considering the fx750/780 75" (3600 less 20%) for a large, brightly-lit living area but there are not a lot reviews of it.

      •  

        I think the 75 has a different panel than the 65 and 55. It's a fantastic overall TV but the blacks are average due to edge lit and not fald. Like I mentioned, I kinda regret it

  •  

    No stock in WA. Had to settle for delivery for ~$55 extra.

    How are these comparing to Plasmas ATM?

    I still have a Panasonic plasma going strong and am loathe to get rid of it. I DO NOT like LCD screens at all, even the 4K ones so am a little concerned about swapping to OLED. Option B, wait until the plasma dies and worry about it then?

      I got a st60 and bought 1 of these…. Going to oled from plasma is night and day imho… Watching 4k hdr really shows progress… Native 4k netflix and YouTube. I still have the plasma… I dont think that's ever going to die.. Built like a brick. This tv replaced a sammy lcd which lasted about 8 years so cant complain there.

      Also this tv is very snappy… Everything loads up fairly quick and responsive. Also i like that it remembers where you left off after you turn off yhe tv.. Ie you were watching YouTube… After turning it on.. It keeps going where you left off.

    •  

      I have an old plasma (a 720p Samsung) + this TV.

      OLED blows plasma out of the water in my opinion.

      •  

        Even with non 4K content?

        •  

          Most free to air you can watch in 1080HD anyway dvds etc should still look fine too. I Wwas worried when I went from my 65" fhd sammy to my 4k one I was worried about low quality content but still watching that stuff doesnt bother me even fta non hd channels are fine

      Bought one of these to replace my Panasonic Plasma a couple of weeks ago (I though I got a good price!). At first I was a bit disappointed, but after I turned off all the motion prediction stuff it looks very similar to the plasma's motion with a much better picture. I don't have the fastest internet so just watch normal (Non-4K) Netflix and Stan, which looks great.

      BTW. I am very fussy with my picture quality and stuff, having edited videos for over 15 years.

    •  

      I'm still rocking a Panasonic VT20 50" from 2011. The blacks are still amazing.

        Pana 50" Plasma, 2008 or maybe even 2007 model. #epeen

        Will upgrade at some point but its nice to see i'm not the only one around with a plasma still! I'm mostly concerned with the power usage + heat these old beasts generate

        •  

          Same hanging onto an old Samsung Plasma, repaired 2 yrs ago for $150 and still going.
          So if you depreciate a new OLED 55” over 10 years at $200/ year and I can’t see a saving of over $100 on power running the numbers at 5 hours/day.
          So I’m sitting on my hands too.

          Don't forget the weight of it too lol

    •  

      I was the same as you. I had a plasma for 5 years prior to getting the LG C6 last year and OLED completely blows away plasma. It's much brighter but still has better blacks. Sure motion handling can be an issue but only in very rare cases. I watch premier league football with Optus Sport from my laptop through the TV and its fine. Now is the time to jump my friend!

    looking at the image kinda looks like a massive monitor xD

  •  

    Bought, somehow eBay allowed me to use more than 8 gift cards? anyone had same experience? thought maximum is 8 (or less, if discount code is being used)

  •  

    Lack of Dolby Vision though. That would be a deal breaker for me.

    • +2 votes

      Has HDR10+ support though.

    •  

      Lol this comment, so you going to compare and take visual notes on 4k hdr vs Dolby vision and see that much of a difference on a 55" at home ? Plus you need to find DV content which is hard to get..

  •  

    First time I've seen a brand name OLED under $2k. Deal

  •  

    How about UI/controls?
    I’ve heard LG got awesome pointing remote.

  •  

    What's the refresh rate on these?

  •  

    Have spent the last day looking at the differences between this and the $300 more expensive LG. The extra $300 seems worth it for the Dolby Vision going by comparison articles.

    https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.trustedreviews.com/news/...

    I don’t know how trusted this review is. But that’s a bit of a difference.

    •  

      No Dolby Vision, but they do have HDR10+ (the open source version of Dolby Vision). But there is more Dolby Vision content atm, but that said, it is still very little content with Dolby Vision.

      https://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/panasonic-fz950-fz952...

      I read a lot of reviews before getting this TV and basically Dolby Vision is probably better than HDR10+ but not by much. But basically at the moment it's irrelevant because there is so little content.

      On the other hand the FZ950 is meant to have better colours then the LG OLED's.

      •  

        Nice. I still want to buy the Panasonic. The saving is worth it. And t would be an improvement regardless over my 48” series 5 Samsung.

  •  

    Does this work well as a computer monitor?

  •  

    I thought OLED large screens are supposed to be really expensive

    • +1 vote

      They are. Been around this price for a couple years. Evey year its expected they'll drop more but probably not really until a new technology is ready to take over.

      55" $2.5-$3k RRP

      65" $3.5-$4k RRP

      75"+ RRP too much

      •  

        Do you have a crystal ball that can tell me when I can buy a 65" OLED for $2.5k?

        •  

          I bought one a 65 FZ950 $2100 in late August. Just have to be at the right place at the right now.

          (It was a Floor stock/Display Model at Costco with very minor burn in. Not enough to be an issue, but I'll return it for a full refund in a year or two for a new model.)

        •  

          until a new technology is ready to take over.

          I'd say 3 years. A longtime in the consumer electronics world. They'll keep adding small updates to keep the current prices even when the panel yield keeps getting better.

    Black level, colour and contrast of this OLED TV will smash plasma out of the water but it won't touch the smooth motion of plasma for many years to come.

  •  

    If you buy a LG C6 you get 3D and its cheaper

  •  

    Went to a JB store last week
    they had the EZ model dearer than this

  •  

    I think the power connector is hardwired in, which could make it hard to wall mount?

    •  

      It is, but it's a thin/flexible enough cable that's it'll only be a problem if you've got to run it through your wall as you don't have a local power point for it.

  •  

    Anyone know box dimensions please?

    •  

      For a 55.. Its actually massive… Dont know the exact dimensions..

    •  

      Here's my estimated box size ranges from looking at Sony and LG 55" OLEDs (note: I decided to pay $55 shipping in the end):

      In mm
      Est Min: 1345 (L) x 174 (D) x 813 (H)
      Est Max: 1460 (L) x 241 (D) x 841 (H)

      No guarantee the actuals won't be bigger than the above!

      Don't forget someone said on another thread that the manual recommends tranporting upright to avoid damage to internal circuitry. Another reason for my opting for delivery.

  •  

    @OP, seems it's been pulled out from their eBay page.

    Hi folks

    For those who bought this TV, how many remote control do you get/should we get?

    Also when I connect the TV to laptop via HDMI, I got this horizontal line scrolling up at random, anyone has the same issue? but watching TV or YouTube is fine (no lines)

    Any advice?
