Got an offer as mentioned in title.

I had my mind set on a 65inch X9300E Sony for 1.8L, but this seems like an amazing offer.

What do you guys think?

Recently croma offered me LG 55C7 OLD to 170K but was way out of my budget so choose Sony 55x9000e. Even Reliance Digital also offered very good price on LG 55B7 but salesman was good person to show me screen burn so avoided. Also demoed Sony 65x9300e and was offered to 220K. But again not within budget...

It depends on your preference.
What do you prefer? Bigger TV or better performance?
For example I crave for a bigger screen that's why got a projector with a 110 inch screen for my bedroom for around 2 lakhs.

Serious problems with LG OLED screen so be wary. Must not be demo unit and should come with 2 years warranty but I would personally be worried even after 2 years.

Already fighting an issue with mine.

Samsung QLED come with 1 year comprehensive and 9 Yrs screen burn warranty. Where as most of the brand's come with one year comprehensive warranty. LG with one year comprehensive and one year panel. Now days extended warranty on LED TV become necessary part of purchase and cost anything between 15 to 20% of product cost for additional two years. One of the reliance person introduce me with LED TV insurance with warranty. In which we have to pay one time premium for Five years. For next five years comprehensive warranty of TV including panel and if non repairble we will get sum assured like for 2nd year = 80 %, 3rd year = 60%, 4th year = 40% and 5th year = 20 % of the Initial TV cost. Looks good but was not sure about so avoided.

Thank you for your responses. I will pass on this offer then.

I am mostly looking for a 65inch, preferably Sony, budget around 1.5L, can go more, but prefer not to.

Best I found so far has been Sony X9300E for 1.8L on Flipkart.

Any other suggestions?

Sony X9300E is an excellent performer. For normal day to day viewing it'll easily beat the OLED. OLED wins only on low light/dark room againgst this tv. Have been researching on many tvs since last year. Finally end up on this mainly due to cost to performance ratio. Planning to pull the trigger on this festive season.
Check out my latest post about this tv on other thread ,

I have also demoed Sony x9400 & x9300 series while selection of TV for me. Actually I like x9300 very much but it was way beyond my budget, so decided to go for scale down version x9000 which is equally capable without few features in x9300. 1.8 for 65" is very good price because I was offered 220K . Again in than price range OLED comes in picture . LG 55B7,C7 are available in that range. But one thing sure you will not regret for x9300 in comparison to OLED. OLED have their advantages and LED have own.

First time the email Logo of Tata Sky, and now the Z of Zee channel plus two more spots.

Something fundamentally wrong with LG OLED panels. visible only in single color dark backgrounds but very apparent.

Fortunately, I did not have any issue with my C7 so far (Fingers crossed). Due to the stellar picture quality this is now the main screen being used (even to look at vacation pictures etc!) and I find it perfectly ok even in a bright room scenario.
If one can afford it, I would recommend this anyday. At these levels, the price performance ratio will always be subjective and we will always find our own reasons and justifications to go where our heart/pocket tells us to!

The LG guy visited, took some 2 hours tweaking and finally took some pictures himself. He changed many settings wishing the spots would go away but they did not bulge ! Dunno how are the settings now. I will take some pics and post here. Will check current settings too.

Its funny about affinity of burn spots. It was "Email" icon earlier, now its "Z" of Zee channel, may MTV next or who knows FTV !!!!

Image retention is common with said models,almost every legit review of C7 mentioned it from the beginning. It's just that people can't resist it's chic design being an OLED and steal deals on offer,others opted for Sony x93.

Hi, I have LG 55 B7T for the past 3 months so far so good . Please provide the pics of the issue to be cautious. Hope you will get the issues fixed.
