I've been eyeing up a 65" Sony x9000h for $2000, but noticed in a few shops they have last year's Sony OLED for around the $2500 mark. Side by side, the OLED is stunning.
These are usually display model OLEDs, presumably on display for thousands of hours, so burn in is a big risk, and not worth it.
However, I asked a guy in Harvey Norman how long that particular one was there, and he showed me on his system it arrived in store 52 days ago, so roughly 600 hours on display max. I have no idea how legit this date is, but he did show me on the system. They would accept $2500, so $1000 less than the current A8H.
I'm fairly new to Australia and this will be the first big electronics purchase I'm making, so a bit concerned how the warranty would go. I've seen the Australian Consumer Law is supposed to protect me, but in the UK where I'm from most places include 5 year warranties for free on new TV's, not sure about display models.
Is it a good deal?
Curveball- Countdown Deals (whoever they are!) has 55" LG BX OLED for $2400. Never heard of them, they apparently have 2 stores in Melbourne, but the price seems way lower than anywhere else. The Sony, to my eyes, looks much nicer, but if they're legit it might be worth a price match.
All opinions welcome! Thanks!
