Seems like Best Buy may be clearing out the Open Box stock of some of it's OLED TVs. Obviously, based on local availability, but there appear to be quite a few in stores near me.

Also note there are even better deals on the LG 65" E8 OLED TV, with less availability - Satisfactory ($1,550.99) and Fair ($1,385.99): https://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-6...Id=6211126

I bought the 65" A8F about a week ago at BB. Satisfactory condition was $1507 in the store.
Had the stand (most are missing stand since displays are wall mounted). Missing remote, they gave me another one.

What I got was a display, had 2550 hrs on it. Bought 5yr geek squad warranty $350 which covers burn-in which is my biggest fear... have one of my kids leave a show paused then fall asleep for 6 hrs.

TV I got looks fine, no issues.

Open box A9F isn't that much more than the A8F. What's the difference?

When I bought mine the A8F was $1507, the A9F display (probably no stand) was $500 more.. like 33% more. Plus extended warranty would be probably $50 more.
If it was only like $200 more I might have gotten the A9F.

According to rtings.com:

The Sony A9F is slightly better than the Sony A8F. Both TVs have excellent dark room performance thanks to the OLED panel which can produce perfectly deep blacks. The A9F has better color volume and displays gradients better. The A9F also has lower input lag, native support for 1080p @ 120Hz, great for Xbox One S/X owners, and all four ports on the A9F support HDMI 2.0 full bandwidth. The A9F also has faster smart features, thanks to a newer version of Android TV OS, and a newer chipset.

But if you look at the data in the link, these two TV's are REALLY close in performance.

Not bad, but I'd still pick a brand new C8 65 inch for $1699 from the previous fp eBay deal. No tax for most and not open box. There is also a E8 open box for $1799 at microcenter. Not bad for those who find a great condition one and don't want to take chances with eBay

Found an open box for $1400, had remote and power cord. It did have 4100 hours on it but no sign of burn in. Still have a functioning 58" Panasonic Plasma that it would replace. I would get the 2 year extended. Figured if anything goes wrong it should happen the first two years. Thoughts?

I would get the 5yr warranty. burn-in is cumulative from what I read.

This is why I'm never buying an OLED. If I do, it will be for the bedroom, somewhere the kids aren't watching TV. I'm glad you found a good deal, though! (I really wanted to pull the trigger on a 65" C8, but I can't bring myself to do it.)
