What's better about the CX? Seems like RFD only talks about the CX now.

CX. Also, for a great deals check out Tele City Electronics. Purchased a Q90T and CX from them.

I see that Amazon has matched the Best Buy price for the BX: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0829RXYSN?tag ... 6087000-20

Here's the BX/CX comparo: https://www.t3.com/us/features/lg-cx-vs ... s-compared. From this article:
LG CX VS LG BX: THE VERDICT
We've not yet had chance to put the LG BX series through its paces, though we were thoroughly impressed by the CX. Realistically it seems unlikely that the BX will disappoint; there's a little less power inside, and a slight reduction in brightness on the panel, but the two lines share so much DNA that there's little to choose between them bar the price.

Both are ready for the full range of next-gen gaming features. Both are classy, attractive TVs with great contrast ratios. If you're happy to pay a little more for a more advanced picture processor and stronger AI upscaling, the CX is for you; if you want a great OLED experience that barely skips a beat and doesn't skimp on features, go BX.

A lot of people will be choosing between the two cheapest options: the 48-inch LG CX and the 55-inch LG BX. We'd say the way to pick is very much what it looks like – pick the BX if you want the bigger-screen bang for buck, knowing that you're still getting really strong image quality and future-proofing in that; get the CX if you want to focus on getting the best possible image quality and either don't want to or don't mind going bigger.
Bottom line: for an extra $200-$300, most people will go for the CX. I am considering the 65" CX but there is nothing wrong with choosing the BX - it's still a hella good OLED.

The LG CX OLED is slightly better than the LG BX OLED. The CX gets brighter, handles gradients better, and comes with a sturdier, metal stand. However, the BX has slightly wider viewing angles, but this may vary between units.

What are your thoughts on Q90T vs CX?

I'm able to get a Q90T at roughly 50% off retail (no PM's please, can't get this for anyone else) - so I can get a 75 or even 85 inch Q90T and still end up wayyy ahead vs the CX.

I think at that price difference its a no brainer, and everything I read about the Q90T says it stands up pretty well vs the CX. Only glaring issue for me is lack of Dolby Vision, but I can get over that.

Framed this way made my decision clear to go for OLED: the Q90T is great for if you have your TV on a lot (news and sports) and the TV will be placed where there will be a lot of light.
The CX & BX are great for those who get intimate with their movies/shows in the dark.

Honestly, that's a heck of a deal. I'm getting both on Saturday. The Q90t for my uncle as I don't trust him with taking precautions from getting burn in lol.

I think if you're getting a significant amount of savings, go for the Q90t, especially if you're able to save the taxes!

On the Q90T vs OLED, I personally think that the BX/CX provide a better picture but the Samsung is awfully good - if you're mostly into sports, news, youtube, etc, the Samsung is more than good enough (size for size). If you love movies - especially sci-fi films and thrillers with a lot of night shots, the Sammy will do a good job but OLED is unbeatable here. If you're looking at larger Q90T vs smaller CX, I think that's a viewing distance issue. If you should have a larger screen by virtue of where you sit and how large the room is, it sounds like the Q90T is the way to go especially if money matters. And it usually does.

Unfortunately, there's no right answer. If you had oodles of bucks, I would say a larger OLED would be the way to go. I am tossed up myself but leaning more to the 65" CX for movies, sports, and other entertainment and sticking with our 10 year old 40" Sharp Aquos (yes, I know...) for news, etc.
