    Considering they have been under $3k recently I would hardly say it's a deal..

    In a similar vein our old mate Gerry has the 65" for $3695 plus free local delivery and a $400 Harvey Norman gift card.

    would get Betta to match appliance central $3420 delivered then the gift card will bring it down to $3120 or try & match at HN would come to $3020

      Pretty sure Appliance Central is a Betta Electrical if you look up their address

      Lucky, any idea if the 6 week wait was state specific?

    Great TV. Picked one up from Good Guys Commercial deal several weeks ago for $2953. Very happy with it.

  •  

    Great tv but not a great deal, Bought 65" C1 from GG few weeks ago for $2800+5% off GC's

  •  

    Why some similar sized TV are really cheap, like around a grand or two, but some are over three grand or more? Because of the brand and different display technology?

    •  

      Both.

        To say one is very good and the other is very bad is completely subjective

      Both and much much more. C1 is arguably the best value TV released in 2021 so far at the higher end price point. There are others like G1 which has a better display but extra cost is not worth it for some.

        Oled don't get very bright, plus 65inch is too small to appreciate 4k , especially for movies with letterbox ratio

          I disagree. I "only" have a 55" TV and I can easily tell when something is streaming in HD vs 4K.

      It's the display technology primarily, but the brand is tied to it. LG are actually the only ones that manufacture TV OLED panels, so any other brands (only Sony in AU I think) will be selling LG panels in their OLED TVs anyway.

      OLED is a much newer display tech, and has notably better performance than older tech in most areas (but not all, and they have downsides). That said, old tech has been refined over a long time and some TVs with it can look really good too, so it's up to you to judge what is worth your money.

      How can 65inch be "best TV"

        He obviously means the Model C1 is the best around atm…….

            @moo: What about it… We are talking about specs and decently priced which is what Lexsus is probably talking about its the C1….

              @solidussnake: Not really. He said best TV, you said he was talking about the C1, moo asked about the G1 since its better than the C1, and now you're making out it was never about "best" but about best bang for buck. oopsie!

        By subjective opinion about what makes a tv good. The tech has a lot going for it though and 65" might be the most suitable size for this guy.

    Just received the G1 65 from TGG ebay deal after a LOT of chasing… want to wall mount, any recommended installer in Sydney? (May have to wait until lockdown is over though…)

    • +1 vote

      I just mounted my 77 G1, if you're slightly handy it's not too bad. I made it hard for myself because I wanted to flush mount it. I cut out the plaster, installed multiple noggins, patched it back up, mounted bracket nice and solid into those noggins. I installed a recessed box for power, hdmi, antenna but I wish I got flangless as it has a a couple of mm lip on it. There's a longer wall bracket in the box which means you can prob hit 2 studs without cutting the plaster out but it won't sit as flush, won't be so bad though. I didn't even realise they included the longer wall bracket because every video I watched only showed the smaller 400mm flush bracket.

      I'm not handy and did it myself. It wasn't much harder than hanging a picture. Just drill, plug, screw.

    I've been trying to work out which of the larger TVs are the most energy efficient. Must have an adjustable backlight…this is key.

    Looks like the answer is not many, if any in the larger 4K TVs? Just chucked the watt meter on our existing Pana 47". It uses 38 watts at night and 43 watts during the day. But it's probably 10 years old now. Was hoping newer tech would be more efficient.

    What are we looking at these days for a 55 or 65? Ie running watts day/ night (when less back light is on for better blacks - obviously not talking about OLED, with no backlight). I also believe OLEDS chew the juice?

    Can't see the point going for more than 65. For example, the Olympics last night on 72 was in 576p! Looks terrible on a 47", couldn't imagine it on a 75" plus! Even the "HD" channels are 1080i and I can't stand watching them on a 65" unless I'm 6m away.

    The only review I found online with actual real world numbers was a TCL 55" using 75w, and saw a cheapy 65" at JB HIFI that used 550 watts!! Thats more than 10x more power than my current TV!

      Sorry but I find this somewhat amusing. Whilst I applaud you for wanting to conserve electricity I find it amusing the numbers you talk of. It wasn't that long ago the average house used 80 and 100 watt light globes running in every room.

      I know that old CRT and even plasma televisions were heavy on the electricity usage and we use to run them all day and night. There has been a significant drop in electricity usage with led technology in lighting and televisions. I would imagine though most of the newer televisions will be creeping back up in electricity usage as they are smart televisions so need to run both the screen and an advanced computer.

      I can't quote usage figures but I feel safe in believing that my 2021 LG TV is not going to send me broke. The biggest electricity consumers in my house was my hot water system and refrigerator.

        I plugged the watt meter into an old 68cm CRT and it used 65 watts. So not as good as a LED backlit TV (energy per inch), but not as bad as it seems to be commonly portrayed and I don't think I've read a single review that is honest and says most (if not all) TVs these days use more than a CRT.

        Just don't think many realise how much power a large TV uses. For example, TVs of this size will now consume more than your fridge, and a 75" could use more than a modern split system airconditioner! That's significant.

        The rating stickers on the front of TVs are useless. It's the equivalent of buying cars that say "350L per year"… But it depends on how far / long you use it, where you use it etc. Stickers should say something like DTV 50 - 90 watts/ streaming 360 - 400w. The range being the lowest the backlight will still produce a picture, through to running at max brightness.

        Interestingly, if you put a watt meter on the TV's in store you will find a 500kwh per year tv might actually use less than a 300kwh per year, because the 500 has the backlight way too high. Similar, a TV showing 150kwh per year maybe be total rubbish, as that setting is to low to see a clear picture.

        So Im just trying to get some real world data as we are looking for a 4k Tv.

        P.S. I didn't neg you, appreciate taking the time for some feedback. If you have any energy monitoring it would be good to know how much the LG uses when setup the way you like it.

        Electricity was much cheaper when 60w bulbs were the norm

    I really don't see the reason of spending $1000s on a TV screen? Obviously if you've got plenty of money go for it.

    I've got a few TVs 3 of which are 4K from TLC to Samsung to my newest 65 inch SONIQ and they are all very similar quality.

    Obviously none of them were the top of the range models but for the base model of each they are very similar.

    You can get a decent TV without breaking the bank

      The CX, C1 & G1 are targeting a very specific type of market. Those who appreciate an OLED panel, infinite blacks, high contrast, HDMI 2.1 VRR 120hz with ultra low input latency. I personally would pay a big premium to go from 30 to 40ms (which is a typical lower end tv) to sub 10ms input latency.

      If you only just watch shows, your SONIQ would suffice. You are not who LG is targeting. And all your TV have a very similar base quality because none of them are using OLED. It is a totally different display technology.

      What do you spend your money on out of curiosity?

    •  

      If you are happy with Soniq PQ and see no different between OLED and LED tvs then by all mean saving the money and spend it on something else that you value more however it doesn’t mean it is valid to others .
      I obviously dont have plenty of money but i dropped close to 6K for an 77” OLED as i see the value and different over the LED tv .
      It is same thing apply to pretty much everything else ( eg penfold grange over $20 red wine , 7K chanel bag over $100 handbag that does the same thing ) .

      I don't have a lot of money (hence why I'm always on OzBargain 🤣), but I also don't drink, smoke, or buy coffees (we've got our own coffee machine and grinder and buy some nice beans for it) or smashed avo on toast. So I use that money to splurge on the things that will bring me some level of enjoyment (which is even better during a lockdown) which is a really nice TV as I watch a lot of movies (heavy on sci fi), so bought an LG G1 recently to enjoy. It will also go well with the new Xbox series X. We've also got solar panels so the electricity consumption isn't a deal breaker (or even a consideration) when buying a TV.

      Watched some sci-fi on our OLED TV and it's a night and day difference compared to our Sony Bravia LCD TV, so much so that it gave me an eye-gasm watching 4k content on it 😶
