Why do some people act like the C8 is far superior over the B8 to the point that they will completely dismiss it regardless of how great a sale? The differences are so incredibly minor with the most notable being the design of the stand

Both 2018 models B8 and C8 do not have HDMI 2.1. You'll need to step up to 2019 models B9 or C9 for HDMI 2.1.

Here's a summary of the differences I found:

Rtings.com [rtings.com] notes that the C8 "gets about 100 nits brighter" than the B8, and the C8 "shows more signs of image retention" than the B8. This all makes sense if the C8 is brighter. Regarding the processor, "this should not be a problem as the interface is fast and works well with no major issues". Overall, "we did not see a significant difference in performance". Comparing Rtings.com's HDR Real Scene Peak Brightness: 548 cd/m² (B8), 666 (C8), 726 (C9).

Wirecutter's "Best OLED TV" review [thewirecutter.com] for 2018 notes the following:
- "The LG B8 offers performance almost identical to that of the C8 for a slight cost savings. Because the B8 uses a less powerful system on a chip (SoC), it lacks some of the advanced video processing of the C8, but with most content you'd be hard-pressed to notice. The image-calibration options aren't quite as powerful as those of the C8, and most B8 samples look to be slightly dimmer than the C8, but again, in many cases you'd never be able to tell the difference. It's still an excellent performer overall.
- "Aside from some external styling differences, the main difference between the C8 and B8 is the SoC (system on a chip) that each TV uses. The C8 uses a more advanced version that allows for better color accuracy (because of a larger LUT) and more advanced video processing, which results in cleaner gradients between colors and other image improvements—but even so, the improvement over the B8 isn't huge.
- "Other reviewers who have tested the B8 have also found that the C8, our top pick, produces brighter HDR highlights in comparison. This really matters only in cases involving HDR highlights above 600 nits, which might occur just a few times during a movie, but it means the B8 won't pop quite as much as the C8 with that specific HDR content. Since the price difference between these two displays is under 10 percent, we believe it's worth the bit of extra cash to get the improvements in the C8, but our opinion would change if the price difference were larger.

IMHO, the B8's minimum 24% cost savings over the C8 (whose best price was $1580 on Rakuten a few days ago, but is also now, harder to find) is worth it for my use case:
- I'm upgrading from the Panasonic ST60 plasma / T65ST60, whose brightness was around 93-104 cd/m² for SDR content with contrast of 7454:1,
- I don't play video games,
- I generally only watch TV at night after work, and
- I generally only watch TV during the daytime on weekends -- when the 100 nits difference compared to the C8 might be useful.

Consider your use case and determine which TV works best for your needs.

The '8' in B8 stands for 8 in 2018 (atleast in my mind), the 2019 one is B9.

Amex 10% offer makes this slick if you can really use the $300 Dell Gift card.! $1050 for a 65" oled nice, granted it's the B8 but still a great TV. Also, there is 4% CB at some sites, so that is another $60 back. Could be under 1K before tax

Do you just need to use an Amex to get the 10% off?

If people are looking to use the Dell GC, Dell does sell a few other various GCs that then won't expire (I buy Xbox GCs). Otherwise I have gotten BT speakers and soundbars, among other things.

Is this a 2019 model or 2018? I'm not seeing it on the page.

Very tempted to purchase. Especially since Amex gives back an additional $100 if you have a business platinum card.
