Sony 65 inch AG8 at JL for £1999.....I'm feeling this is a slightly better buy than the Panasonic GZ950. Oh what to do? (mouth is now watering with anticipation)!!!

Anyone know if john Lewis are likely to include black Friday and sale oleds in their interest free payment scheme. Was tempted to slightly up by budget and do a 1 year interest free deal
Where’s Mystic Meg when you need her?!? Last year they only included 1 or 2 models so it wasn’t an across the range thing... Best thing is find someone with a good deal and if you want to buy from JL do a price match request...

Costco this morning has the 65c9 for 2039 Online! Thats 120 less than Tuesday. I know, only good if you are a member but its still indicative of whats going to happen.
Oooooh, a TV that I've been sorely tempted to get for so long at a superb price and a fantastic hot dog at the same time?!? God damn it's gonna be hard not to leave my desk this lunchtime!!!

Strange. Did they give a particular reason?
RS "free" extended warranties such as the one you get as a VIP member are not transferable and haven't been for a few years. If you buy one then they are - I think they are with D&G.

That would be great and push me over the edge! Any ideas how soon this will be now?
Crampton And Moore have told me they'll do it for £1999 even now and Richersounds are saying they'll refund the difference between now and black Friday so if you want it you can get it now.

Looks like I'm changing from 65C9 to 65GZ950 as I doubt I'll utilise HDMI2.1. TPS is currently cheapest at £2195 with £200 cashback, might hold out to see if it drops any more.

Again like with the C9 the GZ950 Crampton and moore are saying they'll do it for £1999 already.

Thanks, I have put down a deposit with RS and intend to complete the purchase soon with the proviso that they match themselves and others on BF weekend. But Costco currently have for 2039 so only 40 pounds diff at moment.

Crampton said they will price match from now till black friday but the wording is just if theyre prices fall. Thing with these companies who price match is they are never the cheapest listed price because they expect to price match.

I'd buy today with anyone if they were going to match the "best price" available on BF.

I might see if TPS will do the same as I could do with ordering a TV this week as we're redecorating next week and I'd rather have the TV and Vesa mount here to get it mounted at the right height.

Sony has crud Dolby Vision so if you use Netflix or DV UHDs not so much a wise choice
I wouldn't say crud. What I take from the fine detail in the review on here is that HDR on the Sony is poor compared to the other oleds from lg and panasonic in terms of brightness. The dolby vision due to the dynamic metadata is pretty much up there with other oleds.

I'll make a longer post on my thoughts regarding the ag8 later on.

Its a local independent in Northern Ireland to whom I have been a customer for over 20 years. I don't really want to name them as it was a deal I was getting early access to, but according to the LG rep they deal with it will be available nationwide by BF.
Costco were doing the 77C9 for £5699.99 just a couple of weeks ago. Hoping what you are saying about it being £5600 by Black Friday is true and if so then Costco will reduce their price again to at least this.

RS price of 65AG8 looks pretty attractive. Would this be a better buy than the Pana 950?
I'm almost set on going for the 55ag8 this weekend. What I take from the review on here is that if you watch SDR and dolby vision its up there as good as any OLED. Static HDR though its a tad behind with that in brightness terms.

Motion and upscaling is as good as anyone and better than most. Sounds like it has a very cinematic picture going on, especially with SDR and dolby vision. It sounds great with shadow details. I like that it adds depth to the picture.

Also check out other reviews, search the ag8 on youtube. There is a guy called quantum who sounded like he was having a ball watching the ag8. lol And he's not an OLED fan per se.

Look at reviews on sites like richer sounds as well. I've found plenty of good things said about the ag8 by doing a google search. Tbh the review on this site doesn't make it sound that great in some ways. But that's the opinion of an expert. So sure it should be taken into consideration. Other experts and avid TV reviewers seem to have differing opinions though. And the equally important user reviews I've seen sound favourable towards the ag8.

The 'better buy' regarding 2019 OLEDs from Lg, sony panny, philips, will largely depend on what suits your specific needs best.

Im going for the LG C9, I saw this side by side with the AG8 and personally thought it was a nicer all round picture. Of course, this is all subjective. Also, I have read a lot of the reviews saying that the C9 shades it overall. However, I dont there is mnuch difference at all and most of us wont notice it! I currenlty have a Sony and have been very pleased with it (hx853) and was tempted to stay with them but thought I would try something new for a change! Good luck with your purchase.

Agreed, not sure you saw this comarison:- Not trying to persuade you anything, just trying to be helpful:)
I'll check it out.

Like I said in a post, there's a avid regular tv reviewer on youtube who generally doesn't like OLED and he likes the ag8. He slates the c9. Horses for courses, swings 'n roudabouts and all that.

I think what happens in shops at least is that a c9 probably looks the best oled, has the better pop in a shop environment with hdr/dolby vision.

But when you get these OLEDs home and watch SDR(which will be the vast majority of content for most) they will all be neigh-on equal in picture quality.

Agreed, from what I have read, whether you choose the lg, the sony os the panny 950, you are not going to be disapointed as they are all great sets. Im also attracted to the LG due to the sky offer - 50% off for 18 months, as I have sky this will effectively save me 360 too.

got an email from RS confirming they will refund any BF price difference on purchases made from today, so people can buy with confidence knowing they won’t miss out on deals later

It was more the fact they didn’t price match that I was querying.
