    I was going to grab that TV but then saw there were issues with the HDMI 2.1 and I actually have a Xbox series X. Figured it would be better to wait next year as only a handful of TV's now actually have 2.1 support.

    Glad I got the 65” “box damaged” model off eBay. I bloody love it.

    Might be because they have limited stock now

    I luckily have one through a warranty replacement on an older model.
    Updated firmware last night and have been enjoying Halo MCC in 4k120

    Still no VRR though which I care about more than 4k120

      The update added 120hz? My Xbox says my 55" has VRR after the update(which I'm inclined to believe due to the lack of tearing in Valhalla) but no 4k120hz support.

      If I turn on 120hz, it switches to 1080p, if I then click 4k it reverts the refresh rate back to 60hz.

    Supply and demand.

    Demand is very high.

    Supply is stuffed.
    No stock anywhere and industrial action on ports in Singapore is delaying shipping into Australia

    You losing it about the Sony Tv the Samsung Q80T that i got 75 inch are back up to over 4k

    •  

      True - if I spent over $2k on this TV - I would be living in the backyard in the cardboard it came in……$4k is just NASTY….

  •  

    I was considering the X9000H but I'm happy I bought the Hisense 65Q8 for just over $1600 delivered.

    •  

      ok….so I need more options - what was the decider on the Hisense 65Q8?

        Besides the Sony not being available more bang for buck.

        •  

          Cool - makes sense..

    I just bought one from HN on the weekend - I asked if they could still do it for $2295 and the guy agreed immediately!

    Wow this is a huge price jack. We originally bought ours in October for $1995 from the Good Guys and have since had it exchanged for the LG CX and paid the difference. Both 65". Bought the TV for it's 'HDMI 2.1 features' which Sony simply couldn't deliver. Blur is still there at 4k120 despite them 'partially' fixing it, they also removed VRR and ALLM as future features from their website. When we questioned them on why they did that, they couldn't answer and offered a refund straight away. Meanwhile got the LG CX yesterday and it's 4k120 picture is clear, and has VRR and ALLM working out of the box.

      Ah so you guys got the replacement CX? Most stores have sold out and apparently, boxing day sales aren't looking too good.

      I've still got the Sony for now. There's supposedly one more firmware update this month but it's the last update i'll wait for. Its the only TV i have and CP2077 is out tomorrow, as well as the NBA season starting on Saturday. It's tough to go without a TV especially this time of the year as i bought directly from Sony.

      Sounds like you're enjoying the CX! I just hate burn-ins as i'm coming from a Plasma that had it bad. Don't really want to babysit a TV again.

      •  

        Yeah we were surprised it came so quickly as TGG left us hanging to organise payment of the difference (had to chase them up multiple times as we saw the CXs were selling out everywhere else), and didn't organise payment until 29 November.

        Ah yeah you're in a difficult position it being your only TV. We still have our old Sony, so even if we didn't repurchase through TGG we would have had that to fall back on. Yay for NBA starting again, it feels like it only just finished!

        We are enjoying it so far! The depth of colours is just amazing with OLED. TBH we were also concerned about the burn in which is what made us go with Sony to begin with, but I've since seen heaps of anecdotes from people who have had LG OLED TVs for 2+ years (even 4-5 years in one case), who contacted LG about burn in and LG fixed their TVs even out of warranty. This isn't just in Australia but across the world. Seems that LG would prefer that their customers say positive things about their experience rather than have heaps of people complaining that their TV didn't last. Have also seen lots of people state they haven't had issues with burn in at all.

        They've also apparently improved the OLED technology, so burn in may not be as big of an issue as it was in their earlier TVs. The issue doesn't seem to appear until around the 2 year mark, so haven't seen any cases of the C9/B9s and later having any issues yet.

    This is the original RRP. Somehow everyone thought $1995 sale price in October was a new RRP, even though the TV had only been out for a month.
