wow thats almost half off the list price of $1999 for the N950 and they just came out.
Always talk to Mike or Rico I cannot stress this enough. This goes way beyond just the best pricing you'll ever get it goes to their service and backing everything they sell. They want customers coming back for years and they will do whatever it takes to ensure customers will be loyal to the store.

If you ppl plan to do some HDR gaming then forget about B7. The B7 hdr game mode is dark and LG refuses to patch it

Yeah i heard it has a better processor and less chance of burn-in? But I am sure the B7 is already better than any high end LEDs out there no? Is it that bad B7 or people are just overexaggerating? I am just basing off some comments from reddit.
B7 is good but image processor not as good for upscaling and near blacks apparently. The C8 also has more appropriate tone mapping curves for some HDR esp for game mode. In game mode with the B7, HDR games can appear dim but this shouldn’t be an issue on the C8.

There is some claim that the new C8 pixel design might be slightly more resistant to burn-in but nobody knows if that’s a real world improvement or not.

Yes , same panel
The 65” B7 and C8 use slightly different panels. New panel for 2018. See above re: burn-in.

However, the 77” C8 uses the same panel as last year.

Main improvement in 2018 for the C8 and up is the 40% faster SoC allowing for software improvements.

For someone who doesn't watch sports and play games, only strictly for movies is B7 fine?

Man for $2500 I think I am going to go London Drugs and get it this weekend.
I called London Drugs in New Westminster this morning to see if I could price match a price lower than the $2500 I paid 3 weeks ago for a 65" B7 but the weekend price has not been lowered below the $2500 I paid 3 weeks ago. If you are interested in a 65" B7 you better buy one fast because besides what are still in the stores there is only 1 left in the warehouse. Last week there were over 20 still in the warehouse. There are apparently no more 55" B7 models left in the warehouse.

Makes you wonder how much markup are on these things when a brand new flagship soundbar is pretty much half price lol. Either way I'd be all over those prices in BC but it's not even close lol

I have seen the B7 and C8 models side by side and at least from my eyes I really couldn't see any difference..... This is from CNET who have reviewed hundreds of TV's "As of April 2018, the LG C8 is the best TV I've ever tested, beating the 2017 Sony and LG OLED TVs by a hair. And it's a thin hair: The C8's main advantages are really minor, including slightly better screen uniformity and ephemeral new video processing options. The 2017 and 2018 models all deserve a picture quality score of "10". "

Yes the B7 is fine, IMO. There are some situations where the C8 is a bit better, but not $800 better.

Hibbing will probably disagree with me though.

Thanks, I need a 65in TV for the entertainment room and we do not watch sports or news in here, just movies. We have a 55 inch old LG on the main floor for regular TV to watch, and I never played any games. I think $2500 for 65 is the best bang for the buck.

The LG OLED E8 are cheaper than C8 right now at visions and Costco.

Would the E8 not be the superior TV to get or are the C8 and E8 the same tv with different designs?

Design is different and the sound is a bit better on the E8. Not really superior especially if you have a soundbar or other kind of sound system.

Teletime in Mississauga has the 65 C8 for $2750 plus the environment fee with free delivery. They are offering additional extended warranty for extra 4 years for $289 not sure if I should get the warranty as I'm pretty sure it wont cover burn in.
I just received an e-mail back from this location and they said it's $3099.99 plus taxes (additional $239.99 plus taxes for 3yr warranty coverage)...I guess the price changed today?
