      what makes you say that?

        Just seems too steep a discount (though off a too-high starting price).

      Predicting almost no one will benefit from 8k over 4k right now

        This is true today and for the next couple of years but the average person replaces their TV every 8-10 years, I’m pretty confident 8k content will I’ll be getting around in the second half of the TV’s life…

          From where?
          There is a ceiling here and resolution cannot keep going up infinitely. The benefits over 1080p diminish rapidly, and when you consider that 8k requires 200-300Mbps of data, it is unlikely it will common for decades.

            Decades? I'll give it 5 years, even in Australia.

              @chrism238: No way in 5 or even 10 years. Not with these buffoons running the country. We haven't even got the NBN rollout right.

            @1st-Amendment: Netflix are cramming 4K into ~10mbps and the common punters can't tell or don't care. Trust me when I say you'll start seeing 8K with similarly poor bitrates around the 30-40mbps.

            The effective resolution will be much lower due to the horrible compression but the average viewer won't be able to tell. They'll see the 8K logo and feel warm and fuzzy inside.

            The only reason we don't have widespread 8K content now is because there's absolutely nothing produced or distributed in 8K.

            @1st-Amendment: I assume you're talking about FTA TV. Yeah, people don't watch that no more so who cares?
            Currently, using AV1 encoding you can get good quality 4K streams at about 40 Mbps, but FTA never aims for good quality so probably 20 Mbps would be good enough for that. VVC supposedly is about 25% more efficient again so about 30 Mbps for good quality 4k stream and 15 Mbps for good enough. So, 8k could be streamed over FTA with VVC at 120 Mbps to 50 Mbps. I'm pretty sure VVC will be the next FTA standard. 1080i MPEG2 is getting pretty old and they need to replace it to get everyone to buy a new 8K TV.

            As for on demand services, The likes of Netflix and Prime are already moving to AV1 so will soon be able to offer 8k streams to anyone with NBN100.

    seems gen 3 not 4

      NANOCELLs come with alpha gen 3 processor.

      You want latest and greatest then OLED is the answer. They have alpha gen 4 processor.

  •  

    Good deal but probably better off buying a 65" 4K OLED at this point. Almost no 8K content exists.

      It’s also not a big enough TV to notice the difference over 4k unless you sit less than 1m away

    Seem to be a number of decent discounts in their listings however how they compare to real world ozbargain buyer prices may be another matter.

    I know the same thing has been said for many years, e.g. "Who would notice 1080P over 720P! Who would notice 4K over 1080P!"

    But seriously, unless you're super close or have a GIGANTIC TV, is there any perceivable way that 8K content is going to look any better in a typical setup (say, 65" TV 3+ metres away)?

      It looks noticeably better having been to JB and have a look at 4k vs 8k side by side.

        That's because in showrooms they create specific content to highlight the difference in order to get you part with your money. When you're at home in front of one TV none of that stuff makes a difference.

          It's easy to spot the difference the pixel density makes in content 720p up to 8k a number meters back. Head instore and get them to demo it for you.

            I think you missed my point. For most people they don't care. I can tell the difference between a Ferrari and a Toyota, but I'm not willing to spend $400k on a car. For $30k I get 99% as much product for less than 10% the cost.

            •  

              @1st-Amendment: Some people will spend a little extra for value and they are the target market for the product/post. $2.2k is a very good price. I'm not sure there is a TV for $220 that will give you 99% of what this offers but if you are happy with your budget TV then stick with it.

            •  

              @1st-Amendment: Wow, what Toyota is that one ?

      •  

        At what viewing distance though? I doubt you would see any difference if viewed from a normal at home distance and both TVs are calibrated equally.

    •  

      Highly unlikely to the untrained eye. Our eyes would probably respond more to contrast and colours rather than pixel count at this point.

      "640K ought to be enough for anybody."!

      I know the same thing has been said for many years, e.g. "Who would notice 1080P over 720P! Who would notice 4K over 1080P!"

      Most content is still 720p so those people are right. I have a bunch of screens from 1080 to 4k but wouldn't a premium for anything higher. It's not so much that you don't notice it's that you don't care enough to pay double for it.

    •  

      It diminishes exponentially with each higher resolution. This is why viewing distances are trying to be changed. As you won't notice the clarity unless you are super close. Only true benefit is with monitors. With no content other than YouTube compressed clips, it really is a stretch. These TVs have to rely more on their processing to upscale lesser content than anything else. Anything other than a 4K bluray it will look worse on a 8K screen.

    I've said this before and will again. LG's FALD algorithm is pretty pathetic along with their contrast being an IPS panel. Major blooming, local dimming issues.
    If it isn't OLED, don't buy LG.
    Rtings review from last year - https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/nano99-8k-2020

    •  

      Its done on purpose. They can't have their LCDs competing in black levels otherwise OLED sales will suffer. Sony have done the same. Z9D years ago had basically no blooming was almost per pixel dimming. They got rid of that real quick because of the money invested in OLED. Hisense are at least trying with their consumer Dual Cell models.

      •  

        Beg to slightly differ. Sony is still making VA panels - I have the 85X9000H and the FALD isn't bad at all. And blooming is there, as there will be with any LCD panel, but it's chalk and cheese compared to LG. LG has no reason to push out IPS, unless you only care about viewing angles, and not picture contrast and FALD algorithms.

        •  

          If you saw the Z9D, X930e and X940e in 2017. You would see how far away the new TVs are from them. Whatever improvements of brightness, colour and features are now only put into 8K models like Z8H or newer Z9J. Even those models still have more blooming than before. Under the Z9D local dimming zones but brighter. So it will never match up. If only Sony would put their mastering monitor dual cell for consumer sale.

  •  

    To anyone who is still interested in this TV, I have called David Jones at around 3 pm this afternoon and they have confirmed there are still 2 sets left in their Sydney store.

  •  

    Looks like the price changed back.

  •  

    Not a good tv, bad contrast, not bright, colours are okay but you get ips glow occasionally also. Don't bother with this tv. 8k is meaningless on this type of screen and normal viewing distance, biggest gimmick ever.
