  • Has the VRR gamma issue been fixed completely? Will C1 have that problem?

    • My understanding of the issue is that it has been improved with patches but is still present as it's a fault with the panel.

      Despite this, I have never really noticed it, even at lower refresh rates. I wouldn't let it stop you from picking up a current gen LG OLED.

      • C1 uses the same panel right? That means it will be affected too.

        So what's the advantage of C1 over CX?

        Despite this, I have never really noticed it, even at lower refresh rates.

        It mainly only happens at high refresh rates.

        I wouldn't let it stop you from picking up a current gen LG OLED.

        For me it's a big deal, because I want it exclusively for 120hz 4K with VRR or gsync. If you're paying that much for a TV, you really don't want imperfections.

        • It mainly open happens at high refresh rates

          My understanding of the issue is different, excerpt from the site I linked:

          For example, a 40Hz frame rate is longer than 120Hz frame rate. Therefore, the lower frame rates results in sub pixels that are overcharged, causing flickering of dark gray images, which is noticeable for dark images rather than bright ones, because human eyes are more sensitive to low gray colors. LGD will likely solve this problem establishing multiple gamma curves optimized for lower frame rates.

          Fair enough, I'm just saying that I game at up 4k @ 120Hz and I've never noticed it. Maybe I'd notice it if I really went hunting for it, but I think the issue is subtle enough that it shouldn't deter most people.

  • I paid $3,980.00 in October and I thought that was a pretty great deal at the time. Its a fantastic TV.

  • how is this compared to samsung Q80T QLED?

    • Q80T has better peak brightness. I am considering getting it since OLEDs don't seem to be coming down in price

    • The Q80T we get in Australia is a significant downgrade to the one you will have seen reviewed on American sites.

    • If you enjoy huge amounts of blooming then go the Samsung… it’s pretty horrendous on them. basically no comparison. The LG CX is a significantly better tv. The only thing the Samsung has is higher brightness. But when you have infinite contrast the peak brightness isn’t as important. I watch my CX in a very bright room and dont have any issues. And at night i have to use cinema mode due to it being too bright and burning your eyes.

    • Look into the vertical banding issue on the Q80T. Apparently it's a big issue.

    • I dropped my coin on the 65" q80t last week, $1996 and am very happy, the whites are very bright but the blooming isn't bad. I switched to movie mode and increased the brightness.
      Is great in a very bright room

  • Don't need a new TV till approx. end of June / start of July (move in date to new home).

    is it wishful thinking to try and get 65CX under $3K?

    • Very.

    • I visited a JB and a Good Guys and both only had 1 left and weren't planning on getting more they'd said.

    • Bar eBay doing some kind of 20% off deal I think you’ve got no chance sorry. Stock has been incredibly low and they have continued to sell at the higher price points they’ve stayed at this year. With the new models coming soon and little reminding stock, you’re likely not going to get a whole lot cheaper than this. Possibly down to just over $3k when they need to get rid of any remaining stock. But it’s just not like previous years where they had plenty of stock hanging around that needed moving.

      • yeah might have to adjust my expectations which I was basing on C9 price drops.

        Would settle for a BX if it popped up at 3K at this stage!

        • Yep unfortunately things are just very different to when the C9 released. With covid and with Panasonic having left Australia, even less oled competition.

  • Need a 77” deal!

  • OP, I hate you ;-) ((very excited, I've wanted one for an age))

  • Why haven’t OLED price dropped significantly yet ? I was hoping OLED 65 inch would be in $1800-$2000 range by now !

    • Not enough manufacturers making the panel. It's mainly just LG for TV panels. Prices going down depend on more manufacturers, higher economies of scale, more competition. LG can set the price of the panels to whatever they want because they don't have competition. Anyone else selling OLED TVs are buying their panels from LG Display a subsidiary of LG Electronics.

      If Samsung got in on the action, they would be cheaper by now, but Samsung is betting on other technologies to succeed OLED, one without burn in concerns.

  • Myer is out of stock for online delivery and no locations available near me.

    Took the plunge and ordered from Applicance Central with Paypal. I was tempted to hold out for the new model, but sounds like the C1 panel will be largely the same plus the G1 with increased brightness requires a stand so it bight be a 5k+ purchase, so sod that.

    • Well done mate!!! , you just got earned yourself more respect towards your ozbargain badge…keep it up ..you are a true ozbargainer 😀

  • Try and shop around in store, I got this TV for $3500 at the good guys in melbourne,

  • This TV is on clearance as the 2021 C1 is on the way - question is grab a runout CX or see what price the new A1 series will be ? CX obviously a better tv but an entry level A1 might tick all your boxes ?
