LG OLED price drops: 55" CX vs B1


Novice Member
Hi Folks, long time lurker and appreciator of the great advice offered across these forums.

I recently pulled the trigger on a 55” LG CX for £869.89. Costco delivery has proven to be pretty sluggish which has given me time to reconsider my choice, especially at a time when prices for these LG OLEDs are going so crazy.

I’m now considering the 55” LG B1 for £759.10 (box.co.uk eBay store). I understand I will sacrifice some brightness, 2 HDMI 2.1 ports and some processing power- but I wonder how much of a difference for a casual viewer like myself.

I use an Apple TV 4K and I don’t play video games so it’s really a TV for movie watching. Room is relatively bright during the day, dimly lit at night. Watching will mostly be at night.

For £110 less, the B1 seems like an interesting pick now. I’d appreciate any guidance navigating this decision with the prices as they are now.
