IS the 55” c8 for $2450 with install and mounting bracket a good deal or no?

Also offering the 55” Samsung QLed for $1998 down from $2698

You speaking of Best Buy's sale? The wall mount included is a fixed model, also does it does not include calibration in the setup as far as I know. Personally, I would prefer Best Buy drop price by the $430 and not include install/setup, as I would prefer to set it up myself and purchase my own mount.

No, it was offered from visions, but I don’t know much about the mount. For my area I don’t think I would need a swivel mount anyways.

@Hibbing just wanted to say thanks. Went to Visions today and spoke to Rico.. I was able to get the 65 C8 for $2750 + tax. Saved me from waiting on Black Friday.

Thanks again!

I hope it's not considered unrelated to the thread, but I'm wondering if any of you guys who bought the set are considering calibrating it and what would be the best option for good calibration of the C8 (as in an affordable service of a professional with a spectrophotometer). Should I bother with that at all?

I did find this: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/c8/settings
Depends on how you find the picture. My B7 seemed off, so I was looking to get it calibrated. However, when I got my C8 the colours seem pretty good out of the box, so I'm in no rush to get it calibrated.

For the B7, I was going to get it done through Best Buy, but luckily someone here told me they couldn't do HDR calibration. I called Best Buy and Geeksquad and nobody there could tell me either way. Finally one of their phone reps confirmed with one of their actual calibrators that indeed, they do NOT do HDR calibration, and you can't even pay them extra to do HDR calibration.

So that was pointless for me. I cancelled the calibration and returned my B7 to Best Buy, and picked up a C8 from Visions, and have been happy with the factory calibration so far. I don't know how accurate it truly is, but whatever the case, it's more accurate than my B7 was. I'll only get it calibrated if I find a well-respected calibrator that can do HDR for a reasonable price. Maybe next year but I'll see how I'll feel about the picture then.

Depends on where you live on the Island as there is a Visions in Langford/Victoria. Road trip? They may be your best chance but you'd have to do some serious negotiating as it is $3500 in store and I don't believe anyone in B.C. has paid close to $2800.

I bought the 65C8 from London Drugs in BC for $2800 in August during one of their weekend deals.

Good to know about London Drugs regarding pricing. There is a London Drugs in Courtenay that the poster could check out. Thanks!
