Ends 5th of may, I would say the other retailers have reduce prices too
Get a bonus pair of LG Tone FN6 Earbuds with the LG CX 48" OLED TV (online only).
It's not of all OLEDs ie. no Sony OLEDs are on sale and the newer LG C1 OLEDs aren't on sale either through JB.
Thanks but it isnt all LG OLEDs though.
Saw you fixed it. Thanks.
That's not a comparison. Apples and Oranges.
The OP is selling us an OLED, mini leds are LCD technology
Just sayin' in case there's any confusion
Just a heads up that gigabyte has announced their new OLED monitors. Comes in 32 and 43 OLED 120hz HDMI 2.1. The 43” will be a more usable size compared to the 48” LG.
"The 32-inch FI32U and the 43-inch FV43U both feature 144Hz refresh rate IPS panels along with VESA certified HDR 1000."
They are just rebadging a lg cx 48.
Only the 48" model was OLED.
We won't see 120Hz OLED monitors below 48" until Q4 at the earliest.
https://www.pccasegear.com/products/53968/gigabyte-aorus-fv4... Are there any differences between the LG CX or this besides the sizing?
Yeah, that's not an OLED
QLED, but good find $400 cheaper than ASUS and if anyone has ever dealt with ASUS warranty a bloody nightmare
One day hopefully we'll see 32"/4k/120+Hz OLED 💔
You've got the first two digits of that price around the wrong way.
These prices are pretty standard, and remain awful for clearance deals compared to previous years. Hopefully the manufacturing ramp and new manufacturing processes fix this, but AU suppliers are truly a bunch of pricks.
Yeah just changed it, the dangers of posting an OLED deal after waking up without caffeine lol
Meh. As much as I wanted to get the 77' G1/GX the 8-10k pricing here in AU is just ridiculous compared to the much more reasonable 4-5k in the US. Got a 2021 QLED instead for around 30% of the price.
If only there was a way to buy something in the U.S and get it shipped to Australia….
You'd get reamed with shipping fees (+ time) and no local warranty though
@mckvpb: @mckvpb: Plus you'd need to deal with voltage and frequency conversion issues
@ESEMCE: Not sure is this applies to TV's but most electronic transformers are designed to deal with all international voltages and frequencies (100-250V/50-60Hz) to avoid this problem.
@1st-Amendment: Most euro and Australian products are, but a lot of US models are 110V only.
Worth noting, our prices are based on foreign exchange rates which are predicted by the local distributors for each month to estimate their expected costs. The AUD has been edging higher lately so a more competitive figure might be used soon which could easily affect pricing by 10%+
Also the CX48 should be $2375 after discount, and possibly less 5% using gifts
Someone gifted me a camel - not sure that will help me get 5% off a TV ;)
Hmm, 7" more screen (48" to the 55") is an extra $255, 10 more inches (to the 65", from the 55") is an extra $935.
Just comes down to cost to manufacture the given size, but unfortunately it's not a simple case of cost per inch with these panels, this works out in your favour (due to efficiency at scale) if you want between 55-65, not as good if you want 48 or 77+. Time will change this as they add/ramp up production lines aimed at the smaller and larger sizes which are proving popular.
Due to the screen being made in a sheet it can only be divided into certain sizes and the likelihood of error screwing up a usable panel is bigger for bigger panels
This explains why the 48" is more expensive
Not everyone wants the larger size. Some rooms just aren’t big enough for even a 55-inch.
I paid a premium for the 43-inch 4K Samsung in our bedroom because a cheaper 50-inch TV was too large for the room.
I bought the CX 65" from JB yesterday for $3500.00 , but there's almost no stock left.
Yes hopefully this can help for anyone who can find a cx65 they sold to me for $3125.50 a few weeks ago - here's the business end of the receipt https://files.ozbargain.com.au/upload/160676/88529/f071261d-...
Congrats on a great price , I tried all my best negotiating skills , but the JB manager wouldn't move from $3500 , due to there being almost no stock left as of yesterday . When did you buy yours? EDIT ; Sorry just noticed that you said you bought yours a few weeks ago.
Just saw a few people get the newer and brighter G1 for $4400.
$3125 for a CX65 is excellent price.
@Spizz: Yeah tempted by that but even this was a stretch and the killer oled deal just never arrived this year.
Also to do g1 justice would have to wall mount which didn’t work at my place so would have to buy the stand on top as I believe is not included as standard on g1.
@Spizz: Huh how? Is G1 out already?
@BilkZwang: Preorder pricing, Check WP for the details.
Is that an insurance claim ? The retail stores won't even entertain that price lol
Looking for a TV to replace my existing samsung KS8000 for XBox Series X any recommendations stick with Samsung or go with LG?
I had the KS8000 as well but it became faulty recently. Currently in the market for an LG OLED. For gaming, I don't think you can beat the LG OLEDs. I would recommend either getting the CX, C1 or G1 models.
What happened to it ? My 65 is still going strong
Currently owning a KS8000 and after the light bleed I would 100% go OLED after this dies
Fml I paid full price $400 more 16 days ago
Go in asap and ask nicely for the price difference most stores have a 2 week guarantee
I tried on the phone they said 14 days :(
Go in and just ask for the manager and say the salesman Said it would be good for a couple weeks
@solidussnake: Will try
In conversation the JB guy I was dealing with, he said that, anyone that's holding off for the new model . LG like all the other TV manufacturers are being affected by the worldwide silicone chip shortage.
And the new stock that's being produced is mainly going to the US & China , and as usual ,Aus is the last cab off the rank for getting any new units.
May be salesman's BS , but then again , maybe not.
55" too big for pc monitor? Desk is 1m deep
Way too big. 48 inches at 1m depth is also too big.
I have a 34" curved and it is the limit of practicality. Once you get over 27" flat you get distortion because the corners of the screen are further away from your eyeballs than the middle. So I think we've reached peak desktop monitor size.
I bought the 55" for $2395 Thursday night at Bing Lee - I paid a bit extra on top for the extra 4 years warranty on top though so it pretty much is just slightly more than the current on sale price. (Plus they delivered it within 2 hours)
The JB I went to that night also offered the screen at $2577.40 with a cheaper warranty so about the same price roughly.
If you go without the warranty, the Bing Lee offer is an even better deal.
These prices are fairly standard. I got JB to price match VideoPro and bought a 55 CX for $2470 about 3 weeks ago.
Is extended warranty a must by for these OLEDs?
ACCC is your friend.
This is JB's own warranty policy , that's free : Electrical products at over $2000 have a 2 years 6 months warranty . I've used this to get a full refund on TV that was 14 months out of warranty with no problem.
"JB HI-FI or the manufacturer will determine, at no cost to the customer, whether the product is faulty and the cause of the fault within a reasonable time frame. In the event of a major failure or minor defect and if the product is determined faulty through no fault of the customer, then the customer can request repair free of charge by an approved manufacturer’s repairer. If the goods cannot be repaired within a reasonable time frame the customer can request that JB Hi-Fi replace the product. JB Hi-Fi will then replace the product with a new or used product of the same brand that has similar features. In some circumstances, the provisions under the ACL may still provide for an automatic replacement or full refund of the original purchase price. See the blue section below for seeking a remedy under the ACL."
So I personally never buy and extended warranty as I find better to upgrade every 12 to 18 months , to achieve the best resale value.
Thanks. I normally don't bother with extended warranty for any of my electronics but as this is a big OLED TV, I wondered if others had seen the value.
JB will usually repair or refund TVs under ACL up to 7-10 years depending on price paid, my time at JB I seen a 55" FHD Samsung customer paid $3500 at the time and was refunded in full after 7 years.
Managers have their own booklet which they go off which is longer terms than what JB quotes on their ACL brochure
My LG 9300 broke down at nearly 5 years of age. Had the extended warranty from JB. One week later had a gift card at my original purchase price. Sure could have fought it through ACL had I not had the extended warranty, but sometimes it's easier to pay a couple hundred extra for no complications.
CX 65 stock is running out fast. Pulled the trigger yesterday at TGG for $3390+$55 delivery and that was the last one in box. The display unit got sold in the afternoon as well.
So if you are after the CX 65 better get in now otherwise might miss out again (like the C9) and have to get the C1 model instead.
Also, remember to get Ultimate giftcards from Woolies at 10% off (essentially) to pay for it. I spent around $3080 overall. It will be even better if you have CBA's offer for $50 off $250 spent at TGG.
Agree, I went to TGG this morning and the rep told me the same and offered me $3390 if he can find one in the warehouse.
Ask around. If you find the right guy they can bring it down to $29XX-$3000-ish.
Yeah it depends on the store, the salesperson and the stock level. Like Cheep Charlie mentioned above, some salespersons are difficult to deal with.
I managed to get $3300ish + delivery from JB today and I am happy with that. I understand I might be able to save another $100 or even $200 if I spent the whole weekend shopping around and pay with gift cards .etc. But I am happy to pay a bit more to secure my order and save some time.
@jeremyOTZ: Fair enough. End of the day it is still a great price for a fantastic TV so enjoy! :)
@Menzoberranzan: Thank you 👍
More like 3200~ if the other comments are anything to go by
Got CX 65 3 weeks ago from JB for $3,276.75. Looking at stock levels in Melb, looks like there is no stock left. Last week they had on website $4195.
I'd jump on the deal if your stores still have stock before they all are sold and before you regret it like I did when I didn't pull trigger on the C9 deals last year
Why are people insisting on getting the CX over the C1? Is the C1 inferior or will it simply be more expensive?
C1 RRP is around $4499 for the 65" ,or something like that, so you'll likely be paying $4K plus for a while, for an incrementally improved experience.
Trust me, the CX was arguably the best all round television - gaming included - that money could buy in 2020 models, and it's bloody brilliant and even more amazing at low $3K price points (65") during clearance.
If you want the latest, the C1 will be a ripper television, but you'll pay about $1K more for a while to have it.
Personal decision to make.
Thank you for the explanation.
For a living room which is lit through thin curtains for most of the day, which great 60-70 inch TV model to buy nowadays? I have been kind of “hiding under a rock” for the past 10 years when it comes to TV tech (reason: kids, I knew I wouldn’t buy a good tv soon so I didn’t bother even informing myself about the tech). Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated
It's all subjective but my thoughts for my own living room:
For a brighter room consider the Q80T from Samsung (make sure you do a quality check for DSE when it arrives).
For a mid budget consider the X9000h from Sony if you don't need next gen gaming features. Low budget have a look at the TU8000 from samsung.
I base that off reviews on rtings.com.
Thanks! I am def more interested in the more feature rich and higher quality models, as I normally keep my TVs for about ten years and use them for various things - including playing video games. So spending a bit more is not a problem, if there’s ROI
Username checks out.
IMO you're not going to see these down at 3100/3200 for a 65" like some are suggesting - it's basically the best TV of 2020, the C1 is virtually identical and is starting out at 4500. The retailers know there's ongoing demand and limited supply so that'll keep the price up.
I bought one for 3350 yesterday (+ a screen cleaning kit) at Harvey Norman with a sticker price of 3450 and online price @ 3565. Good Guys next door wouldn't come down below 3500 so it's still worth shopping around.
Hope this helps someone who missed out on the LG CX 65.
I managed to get the Sony A8H 65 for $3299 from JB in IKEA Springvale. Had to pick up from Cranbourne though. There were 10 left in Melbourne. I guess I got that price because I went in to pay for the LG CX 65 which they were meant to order in from other store for me but that store sold it and there were no stock left in Melbourne.
Been so unlucky with the LG CX. Ordered from Myers and they refunded my order, then JB situation but no regrets with the Sony, excellent tv and great price.
No HDMI 2.1 though so not optimal for gaming/future proofing. Unless there is an update coming.
Yep, you're right. That's why I was persistent on the LG Cx 65 for future proofing, however no stock.
Been playing the Xbox series X on the Sony, picture's amazing and don't feel any lag at all at 4k 60fps, or there's an option of 1080p 120fps.
That's alright. Main thing is those deep blacks 😊 and beautiful OLED
Based on the C1 RRP, this is about the price you will get without haggling
Ex JB guy, that's pretty doubtful until lg steps In with rebates
You have quoted the inferior A1 for the 55 inch it doesn't have HDMI 2.1, 2.0 channel speakers, worse processor chip, feet instead of premium pedestal, has fewer HDMI ports and only 60hz vs 120hz.
CX is much better all round. Here is the C1 55 inch from JB by the way- $3,295 vs $2,630 for CX 55
Saving of $665 for 65 inch for essentially the same tv except slightly slower processor. The 48 inch CX vs C1 is also approx $400 cheaper. Usually not easy to haggle on release until more stock becomes available.
Why do people spend so much on tv then complain 3090 is overpriced lol
Because… it is overpriced.
It is much cheaper for what it provides than these TVs for sure
No it's not gamerboy.
4K OLED DV TV will still be awesome in 5 years. 3090, not so much.
Bought the CX 77 for $6800 last month.. seems like it wasn't a bad buy..
You can still get CX 77 e.g. $6,650, $6795. First week April I was offered just below $6,000 for one from TGGs. Settled for 65 inch as 77 was out of my budget. Moved my couch closer to screen to compensate hah.
I’m still running the good ol LG C8 and no issues to speak of, I want to get a 77” or 80+” but holding off to see what the new Samsung micro led tv’s are like, only issue the new samsung don’t have gsync like lg does.
I bought the cx48 from videopro a while ago but it's still unopened in box… I wonder if they'll let me return it or price match…
Managed to haggle it down to $3220 at HN today in metro melb. Not my ideal price but I have one now
Nothing wrong with that price for stock becoming scarcer. Enjoy your new tv.
Thats about the best price you will get! Enjoy it.
If the price now is $3595 down from $4K plus, you can try to haggle it down to $2800 to 3K.
no one is going down to $2800 or $3000. I have access to current prices and sell throughs and thats definitely not going to happen
Try to check this one out
It is a draw of luck, if you manage to be with a good salesman then you are lucky even without asking. But if you are nice when you ask for a discount you might be in for a treat.
I know someone who managed to get the 65CX back in August for $ 3500 down from $ 4495. Now, it is priced at $3595 maybe somekne can manage to get for $2800- $3K ballpark.
