    Just a question - seems people are keen on 65s here for the 45 to 50k mark, did you all miss the 65 B8 at 39k - or is it not a consideration as an option? I get why MJ went with the Panny as it seems to be a stellar screen (I would think C8 league or better) but sort of wondering about the other guys in here unless you're all vying for the C8 or better.

    The B8 uses a 2018 panel but is driven by a 2017 video processor, the C8 and above all have the newer Alpha 9 processor. In practical terms for the average user you're not missing out on much, the LUT uses less data points so colour isn't as finely delineated, but I don't think most people will notice or care. The TV sits midway between the other 2018 LGs and the 2017 models.

    Yeah just wandered why folk didn't mention it ito costings when the other TVs were mentioned - hence my assumption that they wanted top of the line panels in the Panny or the C8. It was on special for 39k which when you look at a 55 for 30k, makes sense that people would've jumped at a 65 for 9k more and not the 25k for extra 10" if you get my meaning.

    Hmmm, tempting... but worried the 6-series is quite a bit inferior to the 7/8/9 - I also saw the 82NU8000 for 50k... wondering if the 6-series to 8-series comparison can be made between the Q and NU ranges?

    Anyone have any specifics on the differences between the Q6 and the NU8000 ? My gut tells me Q is a step above, but I have no actual data to confirm this.

    Ultimately, would I even notice?

    They appear to be much of a muchness, the one distinction being the slightly wider gamut coverage of the Q (though neither is particularly good in this regard): https://www.rtings.com/tv/tools/comp...&threshold=0.1

    Still on the hunt for a discounted B8/C8. If you see on, give me a shout please.

    For proper discounts you're probably going to have to wait until Q2 of next year.

    yeah, i fear as much :-( Will probably only see the 9 series launching then (along with stock clearing on 8 series).

    I don't know if I have the willpower to last that long....

    Well, on the plus side the speculation is OLED will be going mainstream next year with the introduction of a 49" model and generally lower price points. Given the maturity of the technology, the next step is pricing to take the bottom out of the midrange LCD market.
