The pace of technological innovation argues against keeping a TV as long as we used to. My rear projection TV that died last year was 13 1/2 years old, and it seemed positively ancient.
I've never owned one, but I always think the LG's have a beautiful picture when I view them in stores. When my father had to buy a new TV a couple years ago, I tried to push him toward the LG 55", but he went for a Samsung instead. Still a very nice pic, but I think the LG looked better.
My current TV is an LG, and I've been very happy with it. I'm really only looking to upgrade for two reasons:
I've had a Panasonic UB820 UHD Player since last December, and I want to take advantage of its full capabilities.
The LED backlight on my current display is a spider magnet, and somehow the itty bitty spiders find their way in between the backlight and the screen. I'll be watching TV and every once in a while I'll see one wandering around in there. Mostly, they die eventually and fall to the bottom, but I had one die right in the middle of the screen. It's not very noticeable unless it's a brightly lit scene, but it's still annoying.
If there's a spectacular deal on the LG 55-inch OLED C9 4K TV in the next few weeks, y'all can thank me because I just pulled the trigger and bought one.
Discover currently has 5 percent cashback for the first $1,500 in purchases at Amazon, Target, and Walmart.com. The Target website had it for $1,499.99, with free site to store shipping, and I had some Target Circle earnings to burn.
Looking at all the various Black Friday ads, none of them had this model as one of their deals. And Best Buy's sale on LG TVs is going to end on Sunday, so I figured the price was likely to go up a bit across all of the retailers that currently have the under-$1500 price.
Enjoy it in good health and please share your impressions of it once you’re up and running
I hope you enjoy yours as much as I'm enjoying mine.
Well at least at Target you have a bit of Price Protection time built in.
Also, I can just return it back to the store if there are any problems.
Party at Adam’s place!
I would tell you that my place is too small, but you live in New York City so I suspect our ideas of a small apartment are very different.
I’ve been driving myself crazy hesitating on one for myself. I didn’t know the price was going up. Looks like probably $100.
Can you, like, stand on one side and not be touching the other?
Costco has the 55C9 listed in their Holiday coupon booklet for $1449.99. Online is also showing the Square Trade extended warrenty included for free.
Online also has the 55B9 for $1199.99 with the free warrenty & a $100 Costco gift card.
Prices are good now through 12/2
For $250 I'd definitely get the B over the C. Only difference is bezel / stand right?
Better processor. Maybe a couple other small things.
This is the main thing. The B9 has the LG α7 Gen 2 Intelligent Processor, while the C9 has the LG α9 Gen 2 Intelligent Processor.
The C9 is also Nvidia G-Sync compatible.
It's debatable whether those two differences are worth $250.
With the $100 card, I guess it’s really a $350 difference.
Gotcha thanks. The B8 and C8 were just cosmetic if I remember right, guess that changed.
