Not an authorized reseller, no warranty.

$2249 is the lowest so far. This is a good deal if you need one right now. Cheaper than what Buydig phone call-in offers. I don't know how LG warranty works on oled TV, but with 100% feedback from this seller, if buyers have been having issues I think they would have reported it.

Is the difference between the b7a and the c8 enough for a $300 premium?

This is wrong. I purchased a 55 C7 and 65 C8 from firstclasstvs and LG reps I chatted with confirmed that they will honor the warranty from an "unauthorized" seller and more specially, that they honor the warranty from this particular seller, firstclasstvs.

Will they provide burn-in replacement for out of warranty TVs like they do for the authorized dealers?

I don't know the answer to this but my research on the issue leads me to believe that (1) the risk of burn-in is very minimal and (2) there is no set policy on wether or not LG will do anything for you after warranty as a courtesy, They may or they may not. Anyone overly concerned with #2 should definitely secure an extended warranty instead of assuming LG will fix it when the warranty is up because they purchased from an authorized dealer. Additionally, doesn't the LG warranty language specifically say burn-in isn't covered?

Hello - Lets be clear about LG OLED burn in - It is never covered under their warranty. I purchased a 65" C7P on clearance that was a store demo and LG refused to fix it. I returned it to the store and got my money back. The TV was purchased from a licensed reseller

The ONLY seller that covers burn in is the extended Best Buy Geek Squad warranty.

I just had a chat with LG to confirm. They did confirm they'd honor their warranty with this particular vendor...….at first. Then they reversed as they said some sell refurbs, so ymmv. That's the case with burn in too.

To give you heads-up, the warranty applies upon the tv was purchase up to 1 year. The warranty will void in case to case basis like, image burn-in which we consider negligence due to tv usage, damage such as physical, scratches, cracked.And also the unit that is refurbished and tv no longer working due to acts of GOD like thunderstorm etc.

As far as firstclasstvs go, I've purchased two OLEDS and they were both brand new (not refurbished) and NEW is how they are advertised. I think you're good so long as you buy new. I saved the original listing page and an eBay message from the seller confirming the TVs are new with full USA warranty just in case.

I was talking about LG covering out of warranty claims like for these guys:

LG Out of Warranty Burn-in Replacement 1: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40...st55894164

LG Out of Warranty Burn-in Replacement 2: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40...st56336596

LG Out of Warranty Burn-in Replacement 3: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40...st56351636

LG Out of Warranty Burn-in Replacement 4: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40...st56267762

In the case of this guy, he purchased from an unauthorized dealer.
LG Rejected Out of Warranty Burn-in Replacement (Reason: unauthorized dealer): https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40...st56365548

He got a 15% credit on his TV towards purchase of another TV. I guess that's good enough, if you go the unauthorized route and get burn-in in the 2nd year. If you have the money to shell out another $1.5-2k, it's a nice deal to get 15% back from original purchase.

I stopped at 4, because it was taking up too much time to make this post. Smilie I guess all those guys are lying about the replacements on avsforum. Trible mentality here. Other forums are wrong, only slick deals is right.

If I recall correctly, LG did this for some who had the 2016 models because Back then, the language on the warranty did not specifically say "burn-in not covered". That language changed starting with the 2017 models. Have you found any examples of LG covering burn in for 2017 and 2018 models? Also, looking at the links you posted, they don't really support your position. People are saying things like "when you call LG don't call it burn-in" or "wether or not they do anything after warranty will be hit or miss and may depend on who you talk to".

You have provided zero examples of out-of-warranty service for unauthorized dealers. Crickets.

It was only 1 guy out of the 4 replacements that said not to mention burn-in.
