I may well end up with a Small C2 for the bedroom but it’s barely gonna get any use so maybe a waste. Something to hold out for IF prices drop at the end of the year

No I'm am looking to buy a 55 g2 and wanted to find out if anyone was having problems.

How do you like the TV?
It's brilliant! I upgraded from a mid range Samsung (non-QLED), and the difference is massive. Also bright enough for a super light-filled living room which was super important to me.

Same for me. 55G2 is a brilliant tv and although I am not a gamer I have just bought a PS5 and GranTourismo 7 - no problems whatsoever . In fact the game looks and feels incredible.

I really wish I had known about the insiders… I only got offered the 55 C2/G2. I really only wanted the 77 G2!

Based on the 77” G2 RRP the cost per word for my review is on first impression, high 😏 But you can’t buy the kind of review I gave, it’s just priceless really.

Can someone confirm whether the power lead to the TV is hard wired. 77G2. And if not is it a 2 pin or 3 pin plug. I have a figure 8 cable running from a spur behind my wall which I used to power my original Panasonic TV. With my current Sony I simply replaced the plug with a female 2 pin connector and hence coukd simply use the wall existing male figure 8. Is the LG 2 pin or 3pin.

As CaroleBaskin mentioned it is hardwired. Other places people have opened it up and made some tweaks. A poster, so all credit to him on OCUK showed how he tweaked things: LG 42-inch OLED

I wonder if that's the same set up on the G2. My tv is still boxed for now and I can't check the cable to check if it's 2 pin or 3 pin.

Whilst my photo does it no justice, Wimbledon in UHD via iPlayer looks incredible.

Sound from TV isn’t bad at all either

I’m not sure why you’re wondering, the two posts above you have correctly answered your question and confirmed it is hardwired.

But how do we term 'hard-wired.' Normally I would assume this means the power cable is soldered to the board (most unlikely). I have still not received my g2 from The Insiders so can only look at pictures. It seems there are three screws holding the cover where the power cable exits. I would assume if this panel was removed you would find a 2/3 way connector as in my E6. A cable could be made up using flat blade crimps as in the above post. The original cable can then be reinstalled if there are any warranty issues.

LG do allow you to cut the cord if you can provide a certificate from an electrician for the action (Silly I know).

You could always buy the power lead and replace using the connector method outlined above, but for most people the term hardwired is correct because it isn’t designed to be removed casually by the end user.

With my Sony I replaced the plug with a female connector which I coukd then plug into the existing in wall male figure 8 lead. So if the LG is 2 pin I can use the same set up

I rang LG and asked the question, They thought it was removable but if it wasn't and if I did cut the cable and remove the plug the warranty was void.
I told them I was an electrician and years ago nothing came with a plug!

I had to push the issue for my C1 and CX before it. Eventually they'll agree it can be cut but only by a qualified electrician and without the certificate they'll void the warranty.

Don't forget these are the same people who told someone here the G2 stand was free of charge and can be requested :D

Does anyone have the distance of the bottom of the 77 G2 TV to the bottom Vesa mounting holes, i currently have the 65 G1 and getting a 77 G2 delivered this week. i would like to see if i can just replace the TV without moving the vesa mount up. this would be temp until i prep the wall for flush fitting. i appreciate most will have theirs wall mounted already, so anyone with a 77 on legs if possible to check. Thanks in advance.
