yeah, I would agree
when it first came up at $3k, alot of people jumped on it, I think it'll have to be lower then this for people to jump again

I wish, but what are the odds they'll still be selling this tv on black Friday? I want to wait but I'm afraid they'll run out of this model.

Nobody can predict the future but I am pretty sure they made more than there was demand... most people don't buy $3k+ TVs and when they do, they typically don't buy LG... I have seen so many of these going for $3k over and over and over... there must be a large supply and also the new 2016 LG OLED are supposed to be coming out this month which should knock it down even more...

Buy this one because it has hdr10 and the ef9600 doesn't. I got the 55ef9500 for $1500

Black Friday is NOT the best time to buy HIGH END TVs. This has been proven by multiple tracking sites and researches as well as by SD staffers. Black Friday is about pleasing the lowest common denominator of the masses cheap stuff for cheap prices. NOT flag ship OLED TVs as low prices. There was not OLED sales in previous years during Black Friday either. These back door deals from Adoramma & BeachCamera / BuyDig are the best deals so far.

If you have been tracking them, when graphed out the price is slowly but steadily going down, just don't be unrealistic. The 55" 4K OLEDs have recently broken the 2K barrier and the last best price was $1,875. By Black Friday realistically they might be down to $1,500. If they haven't been E.O.Lined by then as the LG OLED TVs have not been operating on a typical Spring rollout schedule.
The 65" 4K - has stalled for a few months at the $2,999 price pount. It was actually Microcenter (the former LG back door leader) that broke that price point before that, it was significantly higher. By Black Friday it's realistic to see them down to $2,500 things go well if they aren't also E.O.L. by then or shortly after.

Just think about that for a second though...if they had made an enormous surplus beyond all realistic expectation of demand: In your equation [Supply side HIGH.... demand low]
What would the result have been?
What do we see or have we actually seen?
LG is trying to have their cake and eat it too, and so far it's been very effective.
The actual price @ retailers remains VERY HIGH. $4,399 @ Best Buy today down from the $4,999 MSRP but still this is a toy for the rich or well to do.
Amazon (must be matching someone) but even if not they are still at a whopping $3,739.

However, these back door deals through ebay store fronts of Adorama & BeachCamera / Buydig have allowed LG to eat that cake as well. They are able to offload at considerable "savings" off of their current retail prices to savvy customers from deal sites, while preventing most price matches from eroding those high selling prices at the major retailers. Most of us know the price would be much lower if their was another competitor making an equal OLED panel besides LG or a TV of this caliber...but LG isn't going to compete with itself. The 9300 stayed on the market for a good while after the 9100 appeared but there were panel differences. They aren't going to shoot themselves in the foot by competing their own OLED against themselves while they have this huge market product advantage.

This 65" has plateaued at this 2,999.99 back door ebay price point which is good for all interested because If LG wants/needs to sell more, it's time for another price reduction. The unfortunate thing for those hoping to buy this one sooner rather than later, is that the back door price appears stuck at this moment. If they had a burdensome high amount of inventory of them, we might expect at least some movement on them. (Basically, everything we are seeing in the LG 55" 4K EF9500 - a slow but periodic steady decline in prices).

P.S. the 2016 OLEDs are in. I saw several sitting in boxes on the showroom / sales floor @ BB a few days ago and I see them on the website now too. New 65" starting at $4,999.99 & $5,999.99 isn't going to do anything to push down the current lines prices. It's a similar story with the 55" $2,999.99, $2,999.99 & $3,999.99.

I have been tracking prices through the year... the lowest price are two points, Black Friday and Superbowl time... and yes, last year the lowest price started on Black Friday.. and that was from my personal observation... I have been looking at it for a long time... why you write paragraphs about something and still be wrong amazes me... I expect the 2016 LG oleds to go on sale on Black Friday... FULLY EXPECTED... and when they do, they will depress the price of the ef9500, its already depressed and probably will be knocked down another $400 in a month's time.. You may see them in the BB for higher prices, but BB always charge higher prices than all its competitors... why BB is still in business amazes me... they are MSRP on everything...

Do you think it will be $1500 in 6 months? Good luck with that... I paid 5K for a 50" Sony back in 2002, This is a great tv for under 3K. Once again, another dreamer only here to complain that OLED is too expensive. Many of us bought one already, we are enjoying a top notch tv.

I appreciate that you keep posting this for a deal. I'm on the fence and may bite at this price point, so it's a worthwhile thing to post. What would make it happen for me is a more "legit" store (I disfavor EBay for some reason) or a bit more off.
