hey, what price did 77 inch oleds from for example currys get as low as last year? I've budgeted or am prepared to pay around £3.5k for a 77 inch oled.. i need the gsync so ill be waiting for the c9s. however i've noticed they only seemed to reacvh a reasonable price from costco.

sadly i need currys team knowhow warranty so i'm a bit stuck and dependant on them (i need burn in coverage via warranty and team knowhow seem to cover it).

any advice?

im very tempted to just see if samsung offer a great deal on a 75'' QLED on black friday, then apply 25% nhs discount and grab one from them.
As much as I love OLED, the 77 inch panels are so grossly overpriced that I can get a 75'' QLED + a 65'' OLED + a project for the same price.

Stay patient brother, oled tech has topped out so the c9 has to tumble in line with all the euro countries £3-£3.5 right now)

thank you mate. so u think its going to settle around £3,000-£3,500? I'd be happy with that.

I also think LG are making one final last push with their 77 inchers before a price drop as I've seen a few youtubers being sent them. im guessing the 77'' didn't sell that well this year and they're going to have to recoup some costs with some last min sales before the price drop.

they just priced it way too high this year and when a samsung 75'' QLED is 3.5k and they offer a 20% discount code.. it makes the LG look a bit silly.

Bought my C9 77" for about £3300 on black friday here in Sweden so it's possible. They're at £4000 now though.

Top tip, also about £3275 here for a few more days:


Not sure about international delivery but worth checking, it is a reputable shop.

You can use Pricerunner price history:

LG OLED77C8 – Best deals on PriceRunner UK

You'll need to sign up to be able to see full history and set retailer. But then you can track along the graph to see who was the cheapest at various points. And also set a retailer to see the price graph for that retailer (comes up as separate line in different colour).

Or you can click on list view, which gives you details of all the price changes. For individual retailer, or lowest price points by any retailer.

Lowest Currys dropped to was £4.9k 09/05/19. Entries end there so looks like they stopped selling it then.

However, RGB direct and a few others dropped to £3.7k, so perhaps you could get a price match with Curry's if the same occurs again.

NB: I find both Pricerunner and Pricespy are pretty accurate. But they sometimes miss when retailers offer vouchers. So it may have dropped a bit cheaper with a voucher at some point.

Also you can set a price alert on both sites, so you dont miss a price drop.

lol im just lost for words why we've been shafted so badly in the UK.

i really don't get it at all.
I dont get it either. The prices for other models are a bit cheaper e.g. 10% or so less than the UK. So it is strange that only the 77C9 is so cheap - it is even cheaper than the 65W9 in Sweden which makes no sense to me.

If this was £3k in the UK then I would buy one.

I do wonder if the 77CX will be a lot cheaper as LG are switching production to significantly increase the number of 77 inch OLEDs produced. Apparently this is why 48 inch OLEDs have become feasible as they are the off cuts from the 77.

I'd hope so but if the 77'' CX range was cheaper, surely they'd be lowering the 77C9?

I just can't justify £5-£6k for a TV which has a risk of burn in. Its really difficult to sell to myself.

I am tempted to do the 65'' C9 but I just can't justify buying a C9 over just keeping my Panny 902B as I don't think its much of an upgrade.

Stil I might end up doing that as we need in our household 2 new TVs.. so the 65'' C9 will just get relegated to the smaller lounge.
