[Canada Computers] (Warm?) Clearance: LG OLED (2017 Models) - 55B7P for $1,499 OR 65B7P for $1,999 - 55E7P & 65E7P Clearing Out, Too

Heya, folks!

I'm not sure if this is hot enough to fit into the 'Hot Deals' forum or if it's rather warm, but I noticed that Canada Computers set some "clearance" prices on some older LG OLEDs today. I figured I'd share this for those that may be interested.

It's not as hot as when Canada Computers put the OLED 65" C8P (2018 model) on sale for $1,999 a few weeks ago, but the OLED 65" C7P (2017 model) for $1,999 isn't too bad... Right?

Looks like online stock is done, but there's stock available in various stores for in-store pick-up.

LG OLED 55" (2017):
- OLED55B7P for $1,499.88
- OLED55E7P for $1,599.88

LG OLED 65" (2017):
- OLED65B7P for $1,999.88
- OLED65E7P for $2,299.88

RTINGs Reviews:
- LG OLED B7
- LG OLED E7

Differences between the B and E models:
- Both models use the same OLED panel.
- One of the main differences is that the E-series come with a soundbar at the bottom of the TV.
- And there's some nice aesthetics around the panel for the E-series.

Had this TV for 2 years. Watched multiple hours a day every day. Zero burn-in.

Because it's content display duration dependent. i.e. Whether you will experience/notice burn-in is on a case by case basis. (sample size of one).

Whereas the technology has a known risk of burn-in. This is certain, regardless of which unit of B7 / E7.

Also, given that burn-in is possible, it would mean subpixel degradation is a thing. You're just wearing out the pixels more evenly (because of the content you watch) for it to be not noticeable to you.

When was the last time you calibrated your panel? The colour settings at the start of the 2 year and now are likely to be quite different.

Omg, the burn in police keep spamming these threads. Give it a rest!

Ffs, i own 3 oleds, e6, c7, and c8. No burn in. I game, use pc, watch movies, and even use my marantz media player with static images. The e6 especially was supposed to be the worst culprit. The picture quality is still outstanding and my TV has been calibrated a few times over the years.

People, if you buy, just enjoy the TV. It's a great buy.

Agree on the first part, not so sure about the latter.

Costco was clearing out the 75" in-store in Calgary Deerfoot Meadows location. Perhaps other locations as well.

If it was a 75” then it was not an oled. It would need to be a 77”.

I couldn't resist grabbing a refurb LG65B7P at $1399 from Newegg yesterday. Not listed as B grade, so hoping it comes with no issues.

$2000 for the 65B7 is very decent pricing, if not refurb or open box.

Just be aware though that the 2017 models may look dark on certain games, due to the way the TV maps brightness curves. It specifically applies to some games mastered at 10000 nits.

This was fixed in the 2018 models.

Ugh I was going to wait for a deal on the 65" 9 series on Boxing Day/Black Friday but $2k for the 7 series is super tempting.

Gotta convince myself to hold off for that better image processing
