    Main differences with CX are (please correct me if I am wrong with any)

    • bezels slimmer on CX
    • better, more sturdier stand/pedastal
    • quicker processor on CX. You will notice the speed of menus etc
    • BX is slightly dimmer than CX (500 vs 650 nits)
    • menus are more fuzzy on BX as not native 4k

      Pretty confident the bezels are the same… also the BX IS native 4k.

        Aparently bezels are slightly trimmer

        The CX's stand is a little wider than that of the BX, much like the C9 to which it owes its appearance. Otherwise the two look outwardly very similar, with trim bezels (slightly trimmer on the CX) and an unassuming frame

        Thank for correction about menus, some people commented on Reddit that the menus on BX appeared more fuzzy for the reason I mentioned above.

          Lol. I just bought one and did full panic. Haha

            @iWan: Can't go wrong with LG OLED screens. Recently picked up CX 65inch and Sonos Arc, Sonos Sub and Sonos internal Ikea branded speakers. I went from having a 1080p crappy Kogan to almost top of the line everything.

              @cute as ducks: do you mind providing links to the components of your setup, I am curious :D I have had the same tv for the last almost 10 years, and might soon be looking into an upgrade like yours

          Menus might be lower resolution if the processor is slower? It would make sense if they want to keep the same fluidity with less processing power.
          In that sense, yes they wouldn’t be native 4K menus

    Between 2018-2019 you could get the B series for $1700-1800. Now for pretty much the same picture quality you have to pay $500 more. Now that's inflation!

      I think its more of a demand issue. No need for the manufacturers to offer rebates/discounts to retailers at the moment.

    •  

      Not only that, it used to be the exact same spec panel as the C and G. Now you get 150 (or around 25%) less nits of brightness with the B series, on a TV that wasn't super bright to begin with

    Now you can get this for $1600-$1800 range.

    When this one came out with 2995 RRP, you can get this in-store for $23++.

  •  

    I purchased the CX 55" for $2300 a week ago just by asking for it at Harvey Norman, so you should be able to get the BX much cheaper than this.

    •  

      That's the lowest price you can get it in-store when it was release last year. $23++ when you ask for the lowest price they can give you.

  •  

    you can just google and find this thing cheaper

      It ends up being cheaper at TGGs with discounted 5% gift cards ($2,123.25) (or less if you bought discounted 9% gift cards through TCN yesterday) and even cheaper with cashback.

      Easier to organise pickup around the country as opposed to paying shipping too if you don't have a store near you (e.g. $85 to Vic).

        So the giftcards are the deal and not the TV really.

          VideoPro price becomes the same as C&C at TGG if you need it shipped outside Brisbane, and there’s people that’d rather pick up anyway, prefer to buy from TGG, etc.

          •  

            @CompulsiveOzB: That's fair enough. I mean I'd go TGG too, its just not much of a bargain I guess is all Im saying.

            •  

              @gakko: All I am providing is an alternative method to help others who are looking to purchase this tv which was the intent of my comment.

              3% cashback through CR is $60.34
              5% giftcards is $111.75

              So total if going pickup route with TGGs is $2235-$60.34-$111.75 = $2,062.91. A saving of $87.09 compared to VideoPro.

              So the giftcards are the deal and not the TV really.

              its just not much of a bargain

              $87+ saving using whatever method available compared to the competitor quoted as being cheaper is the bargain. No different to eBay codes, After pay codes, LatitudePay codes etc that are posted regularly on here.

              In fact would still end up being cheaper with TGGs if getting it shipped versus picking it up through VideoPro using the above method, plus convenience wherever you are in Australia

    Make sure you check out RTings calibration recommendations: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/bx-oled/settings

    HDR looks awesome out of the box but SDR looks awful until you change a few things. Regretted buying the BX until I found this out.
