    I think the Sony A8F will be the top seller especially if LG keep the idiotic pricing, which is where I’m most likely heading this year

    I believe the AF8 does have the 2018 panel.

    I don't think the LG pricing is "idiotic" remember that they also have the B8 yet to come which will probably be AF8 price or less. Granted the B8 may not be as good as the AF8 - we'll have to wait and see. There are still questions about the android interface on the Sonys.

    I also think that the LG prices will drop further than the Sonys eventually.

    yes it is a good price but there is still the problem of the "DV lite" that sony use and the under powered O/S but if DV and apps are not needed then it could be a good buy for someone keen to get a 2018 oled panel

    This thread is becoming an anticipation thread, might have been better to create when we actually have an owner.

    Had a play with one in the Milton Keynes John Lewis store this morning. Couldn't really play about with it as an LG 'rep' was sitting on my shoulder spouting the usual sales waffle. One very interesting thing I learned though was that it supports HFR (for onboard apps), which I wasn't aware of.
    As you'd expect, it wasn't possible to judge how good the PQ was, although terrestrial HD looked awful but that was mostly down to the insistence on displaying content in 'Vivid' mode, I'd expect. I'd not use the onboard tuners as I have Sky Q and run it and calibrate itthrough a Radiance Pro, so that's not an issue for me anyway.
    I'm pretty confident I'll pick one up to replace my B6 when the prices get more sensible.

    Connections still on the wrong end, would be much better at the RH end looking from the front for me.

    I’m looking forward to seeing how good the C8 is over previous generations.

    Quite surprised no one has taken the plunge and bought one yet.

    Same for me - I am waiting for prices to settle on the C8 before making a purchase on the 65" (£4k including the £500 rebate is a bit steep compared to the £2499 65" C7)

    Congratulations on your new tv, I'm looking to get a 65 in a few months time. How does 1080p look on the C8?

    @ Gorgon thanks for the pics, the C8 looks really good in the room on your rack. Happy viewing. Out of interest will you get it professionally calibrated at some point?

    Maybe he doesn't want to post it. If he's happy with the picture let him enjoy it. It's better for people to post 5% pics who actually want too rather than happy owners looking for issues.

    I don't get the obsession with slides - just watch a program/movie. If ou can see defects return the TV, if not just enjoy it.
