    Be aware that this is 2 generations old and soon to be 3 generations with whatever they launch at CES. Still a heap cheaper than the current C8 65” deals going around but something to consider before purchase

      They launched the C9 series etc at CES already. HDMI 2.1 included. Going to be a good year for LG if they deliver! I am officially off buying a C8 if the release date for the series 9's are before easter.

      •  

        Does HDMI 2.1 basically give automatic g-sync to everything you watch/play, or does the source need to support it?

        • +2 votes

          I would be careful of purchasing the very early version TV's that claim HDMI 2.1.
          HDMI guidelines are a little relaxed when it comes to defining their versions hence manufacturers may not include all the features and taking advantage of this.

          Do you remember 4K TV's the lacked HDCP 2.2, or 4K60p 4:4:4 chroma sub-sampling but never specified this?
          When it gets released, look for the key word "48Gbps via HDMI 2.1"
          Cheers

          •  

            @vinni9284: It has been noted that the C9 etc. may not deliver 48Gbps HDMI 2.1. However unless you are looking for content beyond 4K HDR and higher fps than 60 it will still fix a lot of them problems that 2.0 can't.

            It isn't future proof, but an upgrade on the C8 etc. none the less and better than what a lot of people were thinking LG were going to do this year.

            •  

              @serpserpserp: Agree that the C9 will be obviously better than the C8 however if it really doesn't deliver the full bandwidth of HDMI 2.1, IMO then you might as well save $1K+ and get the C8 (that is if it is still available by that time which i doubt)
              Edit: I read above your comments and you sort of stated the C8 :P
              Possibly the B9 will be the best bang for buck.
              Cheers

          Not at all unfortunately. Gysnc is nvidia tech, and requires a fairly intense fpga in the monitor to work, hence the added cost.

          HDMI 2.1 will add some form of variable refresh rate to panels that support it. Generally speaking this will be more akin to amds freesync with a smaller refresh range than gsync.

          The source (gpu, TV box, etc) will also have to support hdmi 2.1.

          If you're after the gory details, it's a pretty detailed subject.

          Tldr: hdmi 2.1 isn't going to immediately solve our VRR woes.

          •  

            @incipient: maybe i'll come to regret it but I think the benefits of 2.1 and the reality of those benefits are still a ways away, unless you're happy to wait potentially till this time next year I can't help but feel the current 3K deals for the last of the c8 stock is pretty sweet.

            Hopefully jumping in myself if another ones comes about.

            Well I don't literally mean nVidia's Gsync, but the tech it is based on (which Freesync is also based on but is open source).

            So when playing your PS4/XB1, you would get free elimination of tearing when the framerate is inconsistent, right?

            The source (gpu, TV box, etc) will also have to support hdmi 2.1.

            Well that's a pity then. It won't be until next gen consoles that we'll finally get to see it put to use. There's no hurry for me to rush in then. It's just a future proofing feature.

      Next year's 65" will move down to $2500 over time, with HDMI 2.1 and VRR features, which basically make it the perfect 4k HDR TV for anyone outside the low-end market.

    •  

      yes about time! hdmi 2.1 makes huge difference, its not all just about deep blacks or wider color, fast motion and screen tear is a major issue, currently they are all still @60hz native refresh rate. All those demo videos you see in jb/HN makes you wow on the picture quality are all playing at slow motion LOL! All these currently gen oled will drop price significantly when hdmi 2.1 support comes out.

    I had the 1080p version of this TV absolutely beautiful tv would 100% recommend this over any current non OLED tv’s

    I've got the 55" version of this. Brilliant TV and while the curve is technically useless it does look good. I'll be selling mine soon though as I managed to get the B8 from Harvey Norman for $1500 using 2 lots of Domayne purchased vouchers with the Amex offer and price matching to Myer when they had the 10% off everything last week.

    I have the 55”. Fantastic TV. 3D capable, which it is not listed for the others since this series if I’m not mistaken.

    Amazing TV. If you’re a fan of 3D blu rays go out and buy this now; it’s one of the best (and last) 3D TVs ever made. Very few TVs were manufactured that do 3D, 4K and HDR Dolby Vision. The second hand prices for these are going up because of the rare combination of features these TVs have.

    Any stock in Vic?

    I know this is oled and curved but compare to lg 70” which one is better value?

      The OLED is definitely better value. Curved you can take it or leave it but OLED screens are on another level in terms of black levels and colours.

    I was so confused as to why we were still seeing curved TVs for sale.
    Then I realised this model is two years old.

  •  

    Why do people like the curved screen?
    Just an honest question and happy to hear opinions

    • +4 votes

      Marketing fad.

      Curved isn't much used when you have more than one or two people sitting in front of the screen. Most people probably like it because the manufacturer told them they should like it.

      It's about as useful as 3D.

      • +2 votes

        Got to say the curve makes this tv beautiful, not the picture quality but just the shape makes it look a lot nicer than non curved tvs. It’s also not as big of a curve as other curved tvs, it’s much more subtle but still noticeable

      •  

        If it's just for one or two people, does it have any advantages at all?

      • +8 votes

        They are great for riding BMX bikes over once they become obsolete. The air you get is at least the dimensions of the TV.

      •  

        Totally agree!

    •  

      I have the 55” version of this model, and I didn’t want curved but I wanted 3D - honestly I don’t even notice the curve now. If anything, it stretches out any reflections and makes them more abstract and less noticeable.

    • +2 votes

      Yes, the curved screen does have some meaning. 65" tv would look like 66" at 2 meters away from the screen. The closer you get the larger it looks. Curved screen does make sense for monitors as you naturally sit close to it but not for tv.

      •  

        Well, the sides are slightly closer to you than the middle, that's why it looks bigger. But with a flat screen, you could move the entire TV slightly closer, not just its sides. And then it will look bigger than the curved TV.

        Also, who watches a 65" TV at 2 meters?

        •  

          I watch mine from less than 1.5m

        •  

          Me. I have a 65 non OLED LG 4K as my computer monitor + games from all consoles. I have been using TV screens as monitors since 2007 now, will never go back to a normal monitor as my primary. The curved LG I have looks beautiful, it isn't that big on the curve and I sit dead middle around 2m away.

      •  

        Yeah definitely not worth getting it as a tv, what a gimmick

    • +1 vote

      Why do people like the curved screen?

      I think it's pointless and possibly outright bad - unless you view it close like using it as a PC monitor. In that case the curve reduces the angle so that there is less colour distortion at the edges of the screen.

      If it's at a normal viewing distance then it makes the image worse for people viewing the screen at an angle. But this is not a reason to avoid this model IMO.

    •  

      Reviews I’ve read often panned them for picking up and reflecting basically any light source in a room.

      I guess they look nice in a store, for home I’d prefer a flat TV that can be flush wall mounted.

    •  

      As a TV - bad.
      As a monitor - great! I wish there were ~40" IPS 4k curved for combo business work and gaming!

      The curve is only for the business work, it reduces neck strain quite significantly when regularly reading screen edges. Curve is really only useful for big screens close up. And it's more or less useless for gaming.

    Badluck! No stock at any stores in VICTORIA at all. I just called them and they said it's an inactive item and shows no stock in the system.

    Maybe someone in store can confirm if they see any floor stock.

      There is 3 at Ringwood but it’s $3,000 and they aren’t matching that price because it was for the 2nd not 6th

    danngg.. this is cheap.. other than the curve screen..

  •  

    Saw this at Costco Crossroad 3 days ago with the same price. There were 2 units in carton plus 1 in display. I was very tempted to pull the trigger but finally decided not to. According to rtings Automatic Brightness Limiter and image retention issues seem apparent. Great price for a 65" OLED atm though.

    Is it just me why curve screen is so 2009? Hmm

  •  

    Ironic how ppl don't like curved tv screens and say it's so dated, yet so many high end gaming monitors are curved now…. At 2k this is an awesome price. I'll be using mine as long as possible

    •  

      Makes sense on a large monitor or very wide screen and you can feel the effect as you are a lot closer to it than a tv.

      I always thought it was a gimmick but after having one I like it on large monitors but still wouldn't get a curved tv.

    •  

      Yes- I also have a curved 55 inch. .
      For people who are not aware, the advantage of a curved screen is when you are close to a large screen ie gaming monitor or large screen in a small room.
      I thought it was marketing hype before I got mine but I love it. Much less eyestrain.

    •  

      It's not ironic. Its a tech perfectly suited to large monitors but ill suited to TVs viewed from a distance.

    •  

      If your viewing distance is 2+ metres, all curved will do for you is make things look distorted. The only conceivable point of curved is with short distance viewing so you get a sense of peripheral vision.

    Yuck. As good as this price is compared to RRP, seriously not worth going back 3 generations, and its curved!

    there is 10 at doncaster and 3 at richmond in vic but they are all for $3,000

    Just bought 1 from Marsden Park @ 11.30am today for $1,999. There were still 3 left in stock on the floor.

  •  

    I'm at lidcombe. Got one for my family. There was one boxed left and one left on display. However, another family was discussing whether to purchase the boxed unit. A costco rep kindly said that when the display unit is left - they will mark it down further. Time now is 8:15pm

    If anyone gets the display, I would be curious to know how much they mark it down by. Thanks for sharing the deal!

        No burn in except for slight 4k logo in top left corner

        Its not that bad its only light and barely noticeable it is only visible when certain colours on display

        I tried to buy the last boxed tv but someone called up and reserved it before they even opened up

        I was offered the display one at an awesome price and was told i can return at anytime if im not satisfied

    Just got back from Costco Docklands in Melbourne - same deal for TV - great price!!! There were 4 left as of 1pm today (17/1/19)
