      OLED should still be better in most areas, and an LG CX should be about the price of the Samsung QN85A.

        But for this price I can get a 65" mini LED and price for mini LED should drop faster than OLED.

          You could be getting confused with the emerging 'MicroLED' technology. Mini LED seems like marketing spin according to the rating people?

            @Yorkshire-Man: So QLED … is just LED.
            And Samsung is just being Samsung. :)

            I know it works - my relatives got caught by this surprisingly similar spelling - I told them how wonderful picture quality with OLED is.
            So when they saw Samsung box saying QLED in store they said "Ahh, this is the thing you've been talking about".

            @Yorkshire-Man: What? Mini LEDs improves VA panel contrast to > 25,000:1 compare to 10,000:1 for without

            The Mini LED full-array local dimming feature is great. It greatly improves the contrast ratio, making blacks appear deep when viewed in the dark.

          You can get a FFalcon 65" for less than a Samsung. Doesn't mean you should ;)

          The 2021 Samsung 65" Neo QLEDs are around the same price as the LG BX/CX OLED - I'd definitely get the OLED.

          •  

            @Carrera1963: The C1 55" on this deal is $3200 and neo 65"Series 8 QN85A is $3400, see if the CX OLED 65" will down to the same price as Neo and I think the Neo should be a lot cheaper by the end of the year. It is still high because it is new.

            I know MicroLED is not the same but not really have it on TV yet.

            •  

              @superforever: CX 65" looks to be around $3300, so vs a 65" QN85A it'd definitely be a win for the OLED.

      Check out hdtvtest reviews on YouTube, I was def considering the new Samsung's Mini Led, however I'm not a fan of how Samsung TV's use dimming it looks terrible when there are text displayed on dark background..looks very dull.

      •  

        For me may be the AU9000 already enough for me 😀

  •  

    For anyone interested in the G1, they have an even better deal on the 65" for $4790, $205 off the RRP.

      Think ppl on Whirlpool are saying they are getting it for around $4400.

        Ah nice, where from? I hadn't really looked around yet, just happened to check on the linked site here!

          I think from JB. They were getting their local stores to call the store in Castle Hill Sydney which has been offering this price.

  •  

    JB have them as coming soon , VP have them on order . Have it on good authority that when they do arrive , it will be in very limited numbers due to the world silicone chip shortage, so get in quick, because when they sell out , could be a while until the second shipment comes .

      They should get a hell of a lot cheaper this year. Last year's supply was a complete joke, where we went from sale and clearance prices of $1500-$1700 for 55", to $2300-$2600, when the rest of world saw a drop in prices.

      Just skip over this crap until we're back to normal.

        How do you know it’ll get better? Seems the ongoing silicone shortage doesn’t have any obvious end in sight. This may be a new norm for a while yet.

          I just pointed out that no other major market had a price shock with OLED, literally local suppliers and retailers made foolish seasonal decisions with ordering. The consoles were coming and when covid hit they clearly made poor moves, at least with respect to OLED. RRP is also substantially lower due to new manufacturing techniques and plants coming online.

          Most silicon orders are made years in advance, and LG have been projecting strong growth for a long time, with covid only generating bolder predictions. More than that, they'd have close ties with their given fab supply due to their custom chips (which may even be LG themselves, I'm not across that).

          It's LCD where things are a bit wilder, because there's a lot more entrants who buy parts or designs, tweak some settings and then slap their logo on it. There was a glass shortage in the first quarter, but that's past. Samsung tried to exit from that sector last year, but immediately had to reverse out of the decision.

    At this rate, I'll be getting an OLED in 2030.

    •  

      They'll still be expensive.

      We basically pay double the price for TV's compared to the US. Something needs to change

    Already have the 77-inch CX from last year for my main media room and now just waiting on the 48-inch model of either the CX or C1 to fall to $2K for my home office :D

    •  

      Same scenario but bedroom
      I think the 55” of C1/CX will hit 2K soon

  •  

    I don't know but it seems pretty darn expensive….I don't feel as bad with my 65inch pana oled, I paid slightly more than this 2 1/2 years ago…and that wasn't cheap either lol

    •  

      Yeah, 55" OLED should be under $2000 for me to consider one.
