Exact same panel and processor.

Only differences are the stand/frame and built-in speakers
Yep. The c series vs the E series only differ in the higher power built-in speakers. I bought a SK10Y soundbar before knowing this as I am not using the internal speaker. If you are not going to use the built in speakers then buy the C series. The picture and processor are the same between the two.

This is a good price, but the C9 for $100 more is a much better buy because of its future proofing.
Future proof? How. I'd like to know how. Thanks.

That guy has no idea what he is talking about. The E is the more expensive model compared to the C: The OLED panel and the video processing on the two models is identical. The difference is nicer speakers and a "glass look" on the E model.

You do not get more "future-proofing" on C vs. E or vice-versa. You do get some when you buy the current model year TVs. LG does drop firmware support on their OLED TVs fairly quickly. This deal is for the 2018 model.

These are fantastic TVs, though. I have the 2016 E model and it still looks amazing.

Edit: Disregard this. I'm way too tired and I misread the original comment to be a C8 vs. E8 discussion. Sometimes you fail at basic reading comprehension. My bad. The C9 is indeed more future proof vs. all 2018 models (and I even acknowledged as much more generally in my OP).

Anyway, my bad. Leaving up my entire original comment for posterity.

E Series is a higher premium model than the C series. It's a great price for last year's model with glass panel and better TV speaker sound

It has hdmi 2.0, Variable refresh rate for next gen gaming, and apple play 2.0, amoung other things.

I apologize but know nothing about 2.1 HDMI. I have old Yamaha RX377 amp, i don't even know getting a new tv like this would require a new amp (more money to spend) as Yamaha doesn't have that HDCP 2.2

Mostly video stuff that will apply to video games. There's also eARC, which will send higher quality audio to your receiver over HDMI. You don't need a new amp if you are fine with the audio quality you have now. If you want to use HDR, you will need to hook up all your sources to the TV, and then send the audio to your receiver over HDMI or optical.

Random Tangent: It would be nice if the large tvs had a standardized connection (at least among 5-10year gaps) for the processors, (or even the motherboard, all in a self-contained insert-able box or unit and made them so the chips could be fairly easily upgraded overtime. It would limit waste, unnecessary transportation, and possibly allow for a greater margin, while still saving the consumer money (and hassle) as well as potentially limiting waste.

Especially with OLED where the main difference between units has little to do with the display itself. And instead the processing unit. Especially if the 100,000 hours lifespan is an accurate claim

He is referring to the E8 vs C9 from a generational standpoint (2018 vs 2019 MY), not a model type standpoint. The C9 had HDMI 2.1 and eARC, and noticeably better gray uniformity. Get the C9 if possible.

The C9 has HDMI 2.1, a newer (and better) image processor, and uses more reliable OLED technology than the 8-series models. The 8 series are still great TVs (I own a C8) but the C9 for 1699 is a much better buy.

HDMI 2.1 (VRR) and eARC, plus better gray uniformity. The C9 is more future proof than the E8.
