FYI - Past two generation versions of this have issues with audio sync issues. If you only plan to use the built in audio your likely okay.

Best Buy doesn't want to promote brands like Vizio, Hinsense, TCL. In fact, in store they do shady stuff like calibrating the budget TV to look worse than their more expensive counterpart.

Wish I jumped on the $600 amazon price a couple weeks ago. I'm going to wait to see if that comes back but it'll probably be a while before they restock.

Totally disagree about the new OLEDs. My friend had a C8 and it has burn in in 3 months. He convinced LG to replace it with a C9 and it has just started to get burn in after 5 months.

He's not super careful and does game daily, but he's also not oblivious to it. He had all the screen saver settings on.
I said newest OLED... the C8 is over 2 years old at this point. The C9 is more burn in resistant.

The only thing that makes me stay away from OLED is the screen burn in issues. I keep my tv on 24/7 usually.
I'll never have screen burn issues and the vast majority of oled owners won't either. I wouldn't use an OLED for gaming myself, though.

I would not consider Magnolia a definitive source for bang for the buck TV's. The profit margins on this TV are so low, that Bestbuy probably just stocks them to satisfy people not willing to pay ridiculous profit margins to Samsung, Sony and Bestbuy. This TV will give you 95% of the quality of a Magnolia TV at 35% of the price. There are a lot of people for whom this is a good value proposition.

Yeah this isn't true. I worked for the company for 15 years. The most thought that does into displays is reading the planogram to see where they're supposed to be. Haha nobody is calibrating TVs before hanging them.

They also don't care what you buy as long as there is margin. There is no incentive for selling Sony, Samsung, etc. There is more margin on the more expensive pieces (typically Magnolia stuff), so of course there is benefit of selling that as opposed to a Vizio. You're just not going to find much wiggle on a great looking tv that is sub 1k, which is where a lot of the Vizio and Hisense models live.

The magnolia TV in their showcase rooms are using a different feed altogether, yes they are finely tune. The cheap TV are sharing the same coax signals. There are plenty of deceptive ways to push consumers towards their expensive sets. This is the same company that push so hard toward " monster" cables back in the day.

I have this TV. It blows any other brand under $1500 out of the water. Must get.
I love it too! Can't believe people would buy a Samsung for more money with less features and worse screen

Had ordered one on Amazon for 599 but having them ship the tv without packaging kinda scared me lol. Saw bestbuy had it in stock but at a higher price now, same with amazon, for pickup today. Can't wait. Seems it's a solid tv/price for what you get. Hopefully mine lasts long lol

The 65" is currently in stock at Best Buy as well for $950 in case anyones looking for it. I have the 65" and so far I love it. Awesome set for under $1,000. I think when rtings finally gets around to reviewing it people will be mad they missed out on it or ignored it.

I do have some DSE and vertical banding but I think you really have to be a stickler to care about it enough to ruin the experience. I don't see it in normal content, and barely saw it in most of the other testing videos. If anyone wants to check their set though, I found this video showed it for me the clearest https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dz-js7X4lik. That video made it apparent that I do have some DSE and vertical banding, but again not enough to ruin anything for me.

Again, this is false info. First of all, calibrating a TV is a far different process than just connecting it to a "cleaner" feed. Second, most stores now have Mag TVs on display outside of the actual Mag room.

You know the reason they pushed Monster cable? Because the margin is insane on cables. There's no magic here, stores sell what makes them money. There's barely any money on product anymore, which is why you see such a heavy focus on a "service" component from everyone (install, warranty, tech support, etc.).

Nobody is trying to make Vizio tvs look worse than Sony tvs in the store. Truth be told, a lot of the people selling them are 18 year olds that have no concept of what the performance differentiators are to begin with. That kid doesn't care 1 lick whether he sells you a Vizio or a Sony. And more to the point, the merch team that is displaying those sets care even less.

i tested my 65 lg e8 recently and there is no burn in. i watch almost 40 hours of tv and movies a week. during football season it would be running all sunday. originally i picked up a 65h8g but return it for a 65h9g. i have since move my e8 to my bedroom. the hisense is amazing and is the work horse now. owning the h9g for 3 weeks i can tell you i would not buy an oled at almost 3 times the price again or even at 2x the price.
