My three year old was kind enough to toss a toy hammer through my Vizio 55 inch 3d TV this weekend, so I had to do some TV shopping. Was planning on buying the 65 Inch M-Series Vizio when I stumbled across the LG OLED at Best Buy.

They have them on clearance at $1599 which is ok, but check and see if you have any open box units near you. I just picked one up last night at $911 in Willow Grove, PA. They had 3 available. It was an hour drive, but for that price I'll drive the hour in a rainstorm. TV listed as acceptable, looks brand new. Still had the plastic screen protector on it. This thing is effin beautiful, I am amazed at the picture.

Good luck!

I came across a 55inch for $579. Awful burn in. same store had a 65c8 for I think 950, but it wasn't on and when I asked them, they said horrible burn in too. Hopefully yours was on and running and you saw the picture. Manager said they only price them that low when there is a problem

Yes mine was up and running and looked perfect. Definitely should check before you buy. Do they still come with the standard factory warranty? Wonder if that would cover it if you get one that does have burn in.

OP, did the Best Buy site show it as in stock open box? I'm putting in a zip near Willow Grove and it isn't showing any inventory

Just called my local store with 2 in fair condition and they said both had major burn in.

Hard pass.

Yes it would show, there was a few a couple of hours ago near Willow Grove that now appear to be gone from what I can see.

I posted this more for the open box, it's hard to beat if you can find one. Looks like they are getting snatched up pretty quick.

Might be worth a shot for panel replacement from LG. Many people had success from the Walmart burn ins

I wondered about this myself, if the panel had burn in when I got there my plan was to try and get it much cheaper and then see if I could warranty it through LG. Luckily the one I grabbed looks perfect.

Found a couple in my area so I stopped in the stores to inspect the tv. One of them was perfect with no burn-ins, matching Open Box LP serials numbers and all but had a price tag of $1300. The sales reps refused to sell it to me for $991 as listed online because the tv was in such good condition and then tried telling me it was in Florida. They even went as far as pointing me to a B8 model that had terrible burn ins and tried telling me it was that tv. I had to prove them wrong by showing them the open box LP numbers. After about 20 minutes of going back and forth with the reps I got irritated and just ordered it online for pickup within 1 hour. I waited around and watched as they had to take it down and wrap it up for me.

Sucks they had to break your stones about it, but at least you got it. Pretty hard to beat at that price.

I'd recommend getting the cheapest one, even with major burn in. Best buy will come with full manufacturer warranty and use a CC that extends the warranty and you should be just fine. Return the tv to BB if LG refuses to fix, pretty minimal risk since your buying from BB.

I got 2 display 65 C8s with some burn in. 1 from BB for $1280 and another from Costco for $1500. Both had minor burn in but I went through LG warranty claims and they didn't give any hassle to replace the panels. Technically burn in isn't covered by warranty but LG is ramping up factories for OLED and want to keep customers happy and likely are fixing them all that have warranty. I'm thinking to return my Costco one and scooping up a badly burned 77 inch C8 if it drops further to under $2k.
