Lowest price for the C8 for now, right? Tax really kills the deal for CA

its $1849 at firstclasstvs.com, yep they are a legit retailer not bait and switch. Not an auth retailer for LG but LG doesnt care and they will still honor and service per warranty.

Google firstclasstvs or look at their ebay store for more feedback.

Ielectrica isn't an authorized dealer anyway, so firstclasstv is the better option.

Kind of sick of newegg deals getting posted that don't indicate being a 3rd party seller. TD.

How far off might a reasonable deal be for the 2019 models ? (OLED65C9PUA I think).

I've lost track of the latest burn-in issues but had heard these models may merit getting an extended warranty because of it.

A fact which makes literally no difference to the actual warranty

neither the original factory warranty, nor any extended warranty (other than the super overpriced one at Best Buy) cover burn in... because unless you abuse the set with like 600 straight hours of CNN with brightness maxxed out you won't experience any.

You think a 5 year through BBY at $500 is a safe bet? On the fence, considering springing for one but only with the warranty.

I think paying 25% of the price of the TV only to gain protection against something that only happens if you abuse the crap out of it makes 0 financial sense.

If you abuse it so badly you get burn in after a year then you get a new TV.

Which you will then ruin again in a year.


If you can't use a TV without displaying hundreds if not thousands of hours of static, super-bright, logos without varying the content, then don't buy an OLED at all.

I'll think about it but BBY price matched me at $1899 + warranty at $449. I have until 14th to pick it up and can return it for 15 days no restocking fee.

$449/5 = $90 a year, peace of mind, might be worth it.

I returned a Vizio P75-C1 for $2100 (bought it in Feb 2018 from Sam's) so either way, warranty or not, this is a win. Yeah, it goes from 75" to 65" but PQ will be night and day differences.

Thanks for the info didn't know that. It's strange since ielectrica and firstclasstv are essentially the same company.

Are you sure? It doesn't seem to add anything on for me.
