Link for review.
Link for comparison between Vizio and LG CX.

Thoughts?
Where can you buy Vizio in Canada anymore? Didn’t they abandon this market?

Where are you seeing 15 days? Their website says 30 days for returns and 60 days for price protection.

Amazon on the other hand has no price protection at all and if you need to return you have to pay for the return shipping.

Maybe I’m missing something.

Fairly sure Vizio isn't distributing in Canada anymore

Thanks.

Why did you pick costco for warranty.

BB warranty covers burn-in but is more expensive. Costco warranty does not cover burn-in but maybe they do good by you in any case.

The Costco warranty costs 99 dollars which means it is WAY less expensive.

It also looks like the CX crushes it for gaming.

As a C8 owner, I know that I'm not in gaming nirvana, but outside of twitch shooters, this is pretty damn close to a CX experience.

The CX pushing 4K120 on a 3080 at Medium Detail (75 to 120fps) might be a next dimensional experience for shooter aficionados. I'm expecting stories to drop in from 3080 owners by about Christmas 2020.

If you aren't playing multiplayer FPS then 4K60 is fine even for shooters!

I agree, especially in my mid-30s now, with aging orbs. It's a different strokes for different folks thing, a 21 year old guy playing a twitch shooter might demand 144Hz or 240Hz.

Damn those mid-30s are when you start to finally feel like you are getting older. You can stave off most of the worst effects of aging by lifting weights, exercising, eating well etc. but the decline is real.

I look at the title/URL for this thread every now and then and love seeing how much OLED prices have fallen since this thread was created. I wonder when 655 inch OLEDs will break the 1500 dollar threshold, the 65 inch models will drop below 2000 dollars here in Canada and when the 77 inch models will fall below 3000 dollars?!

People are already buying 8K TVs and I shake my head if they only want to use it for watching TV because we don't even have all of our content at 4K yet!?!!? Upscaling is going to have to be a major focus going forward and incredible new compression algorithms are going to be required to stream 8K content.

8K is unlikely to have the impact that going to 1080p did, which was an incredible one. 4K is awesome when you include HDR but I don't think we will see widespread 8K adoption in the next five years so these LG OLEDs will have been very future-proof investments. I am going to keep mine for at least five years I think and then maybe hand it down or sell it or something and then I will use the Visions warranty store credit to buy another TV or maybe an audio product if I can get a better TV deal elsewhere. Visions seems quite willing to play ball when it comes to price and their employees seem very personable and helpful so I don't mind going back there over and over. If their warranty was the best in the industry I don't see why I would consider shopping elsewhere but it isn't . . . but hey, take the best price you can get, get them to price match it and even beat it and then consider asking how much lower they will go if you buy the warranty. If you get another 200 bucks off you are getting the warranty for half price and you get it back in five years whilst having some peace of mind.

If you have the money, it's already a decent price. Don't settle for 65!

Some guys are saying they are getting just under 5000 dollars as their best price but that is 2x the best price of the 65 which is 2500 dollars. That is one hell of a premium for the size difference but if you are loaded and you don't mind dropping five grand on a TV there you go.

yeah, I was hoping something like 3-4k but was also looking at the 85" Q80T but thats like 5k too.

77" OLED vs 85" Q80T - is the extra size worth it? is the OLED worth it? etc. decisions decisions

Try working at a university. Going to the gym there is quite humbling. You’re always up against kids in their prime.

But I get the last laugh as the all put on a good 10kg after they graduate and land their first job...

Back on topic, has anyone looked at Skyworth Oled? Seems to be a cheap Chinese brand, but they sell them here in Canada. 55” was like $1400.

EDIT: looks like it’s cheaper now, less than $1200 but I don’t know the retailer: https://www.sight-sound.ca/skyworth-55- ... droid.html
