$100 off the usual price. Not quite as good as the $150 gift card deal before Christmas, but stacks nicely with the $100 off $500 coupon.

Best Buy also has it for $1349.99 without the bundle if you prefer the Geek Squad warranty with burn in protection ($299.99) - https://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-4...Id=6416732

This is only ideal if you need to fit a smaller TV or plan to use it as a large monitor. In any other case, you should get the 55".

It doesn't "cost more" to make 48 vs 55. The way the manufacturing is set up, they cut 48 w/ 77 on the same panel instead of 55 w/ 65.

The combo of 55/65 sizes are more popular than 48 and 77. So supply becomes limited on 48/77, they keep prices high, run less sales, and demand settles where it does.

They can always lower price on 48's and 77's if they wanted to shift consumer demand in that direction a bit, but they don't need to. 48 is fairly popular among some gaming folks and they are willing to pay for a 4K 120Hz display w/ freesync/gsync. 77 is also serving the premium market of folks wanting high end large displays.

Internally, they likely track sales closely and segment 55/65 as their mainstream products, 48/77 as their premium paying market.
like the other person said, the upgrade is so minor that one can safely buy a CX and not be worried about it. In fact some reviews showed the CX to be brighter.

I was also planning on a C1. But got a CX 55 from bestbuy for $1349 with 5 year warranty. Also just got the free bluetooth speaker in from the promo LG is running. They sent me a PL7 speaker worth $130-180.

Best deal right now is finding the cheapest CX you can find and then get the free speaker through the promo.
Convenience. I believe the 48 came out after the 55. The 55 was frequently cheaper than the 48.

From a manufacturer's stand point, I believe they are able to produce more displays at the 55 inch size than the 48 which leads to lower costs.

Isn't the 55 in the same price ? What would be the advantage of going with this smaller tv for the same price ?

The 48 inch is great for a large monitor where as the 55 is a little to large. Since it runs at 120hz and obviously has great color it can be useful for all sorts of pc applications including of course gaming.

So a gamer would want the 48 vs the 55 because the 55 is too big for gaming ? Does the smaller 48 in have better response times or something ?
Computer monitor???

Also yes these days manufacturers cut these tvs out of one very large piece of glass and they have less left over glass cutting 55 inch tvs then 48 inch. This is why the majority of tvs are now either 65 or 55 inches

55 is good for couch gaming. 48 is large but useable as a desktop monitor (I sit 28-30in away and it's perfect)

The C1 (2021 version) is coming out any day. I have the 48-inch ordered. This may be a good deal, but people should consider that a new model is literally days away. There are some well-done youtube videos showing differences between the CX and the C1.

I was originally planning to get the C1, but I'm not confident in it's availability soon, especially at Costco. And since the C1 only offers very minor upgrades to the CX, I'm happy with $250 off on the CX instead. Probably won't see the C1 on sale until the fall.
