Langley BC
Just picked up 2 b8 55" in Langley (1 for my MIL). Not all locations carry the B series so it's best to call first. Langley still had 7 as of 5pm today.

Then its the pricing that makes the B8 more attractive
Pretty much. The main difference is processing/upscaling. Matters to some esp when watching lower quality content (e.g. tv box). But lots of ppl are happy with vizio w/ almost non existent upscaling, so to most, b8 would make more sense.

Yes, burn in would be a concern if the tv is displaying static images, such as station logos, for long periods of time.
If burn-in is an issue, are sports fans wise to buy OLED's? Every sport you watch has static score bars

Good to know Langley has them - this is where I'd get mine from. My biggest concern is still the burn-in... I took a look at the Costco warranty and it looks like burn-in is not covered. So buying the warranty, even though it is, hands down, the best out there, makes less sense to me.

I am not sure if I should get the 55" at this price or wait for a killer deal on BF for a 65" OLED. What would you guys recommend? Will we see this low a price during BF even for the 55"?

I'll be honest I stared at it for a good 10 mins in costco yesterdy. It really is a nice looking TV. I read the rtings stuff too and I think that as long as I use a PC extensively with my TV then I'm going to be overly paranoid about burn in

It's almost exactly 1800 after ontario tax and the coscto tv warranty

The biggest problem is CNN and MSNBC. Heavy user of those channel should not buy an OLED.

Constant Red and yellow logo really kill the OLED.

Rtings ran sport contents for thousands of hours and got burn-in after like 9000 hours.

But it was only watching football... For all that time.

With a bit more mixed content (different type of sport), there's zero problem.

May not have stock of B8/C8 by this BF. Most likely they are trying to clear out inventory at this price. Ppl are usually trying to weigh between B8/C8 now vs B9/C9 at BF, but with that logic you'll always be sitting on the sideline, always waiting. That delayed gratification with marshmallow thing is overrated.

There, you got the nudge you're looking for. Now go do the right thing.

I believe I bought my 55" C8 on BF savings and it was $1999 so there might be a deal on a C9 but I am guessing these will be long gone.

saw it at Innes at this price
Thanks for the info. Just got one at $1489.99 at the Cyrville (Innes) location. It was actually mislabelled as the 55C8 but they don't have that model in stock. Too bad as I would have argued to make them honour the labelled price. Apparently, Kanata location has the 55C8 in stock but it is correctly labelled at $1,999. I am still very happy with getting the 55B8 at $1,489.99. It is a fantastic TV and that is a very good price for it. It is the lowest that I have seen it.

Cheers...

Would you say watching NFL weekly (8hr Sunday’s) is bad for it? Rest of my time is either a ps4 or Netflix.
