Which LG to go for?

I'm in the market for a new TV but unsure as to which model to go for.

I have a budget of around £1100 and don't really want to go above 55 inches. The TV will mainly be used for Netflix/Amazon and playing Xbox Series X/PS5.

I do want the option of playing 120FPS and I understand certain LGs have this option.

I've had a look online and there are so many different LGs that I'm a bit confused as to which is the best to get at my price point and where from.

Also open to other makes within my price range 😀

Can you get an LG CX in your price range, if so that's what I would be looking at, just be careful with still images and possible screen burn.

I've been looking o the John Lewis website but couldn't find the CX. They have the 55B16LA, I'm wondering if that's this year's model?

I love the CX for PS5 gaming & films. If you can find it I would've thought that you will be able to pick one up in your price range. The newer model (C1) is £1300 on John Lewis. JL also do 5 yr accidental damage cover which includes screen burn if you're worried about OLED screens in that regard, cover is £140.

That being said, generally when do you think the TV will get the most use? I find that the performance in light/bright rooms isn't the best, especially when viewing darker content. I'm okay with this though as most of the time I use it in evenings.

Correct! The letter denotes how far up the line it is (A = bottom of the line, Z = top) and the number corresponds to the year of release. C9 = 2019, CX = 2020 & C1 = 2021.

Got it. Looking online it seems the key differences apart from price between the b1 and c1 are 2 x 2.1 ports vs 4 and a slightly better processor on the c1.

Yeah based on what I've read, the C1 processor does produce a better picture but the B1 doesn't exact produce a poor pic. So I suppose it boils down to
1) would you be happy to have the B1 knowing you might get a better image on the C1?
2) can you live with only 2 HDMI 2.1 ports?

Even though the B1 will blow my current TV picture out of the water, I wouldn't be happy knowing the C1 is the one to go for!

Most 2020 stock will be sold out now, leaving overpriced 2021 stock. JL are one of the worst retailers to look at if you're looking for a good deal on outgoing stock, they usually replace their model lines with the new models faster than anyone else.

If you want a 2021 model, best wait for prices to become more reasonable. You shouldn't have to compare the B1 to the CX, the B1 is dimmer and a lower tier TV.
