Hi all,
I am in the lookout for 55" 4k TV. I am being offered LG OLED B8 for 1.5 lacs with flexipay option of rs 6999 pm Nd 2 yrs warranty. Is this a good price ? Should I bargain for better price or more goodies ?

TIA

Buy what u want, now. If u keep waiting for prices to drop, something new will come and again u will be advised to wait and buy later. I got the c8 for 1.7 lacs in Chennai. It is an amazing tv. Buy what u want now. Wait for Diwali, wait for ganpati wait for Christmas wait for CES :rolleyes:

It all depends on how much your up - gradation bug is strong or how someone is going to manage budget .;)
Definitely if one study tv pricing trend,prices are highest during launch and decreases after new product launch in next season ,already SONY AF9 & ZF9 are released in sep ,will be available in India during feb or mar 19. Also panasonic has launched oled .
Definitely C8 will cost less during this diwali this season.
If someone likes any AV product from HEART ,DIL se then just go with ur heart and buy .

Thank you friends for your opinions. I definitely can't wait anymore. This purchase is long overdue already :p my budget was only 80k to start with. But I just couldn't buy any other TV after seeing these OLED beauties. So I am already overstretched on budget.

hmmm, looks like its the 9300 which is a 2016 Model getting dumped in India, but still if its really Rs. 80000, eyes closed it would simply be outstanding. Ah, 2016 model, so maybe Burn in issue would be a huge concern as well.........

I don't think it is 2016 model.because it got award in 2018 barlin .it is not possible to get 2 years old technology to achieve it.i don't know why they kept same name of old models to New one.

Had a chat with the marketing person in bangalore of sky worth. the 65 oled MRP is 3.99 lakhs last year diwali time but they sold hardly few units for close to 2.99lakhs. they have tie up with only kundan electronics here. but nothing on display in dealerships. pricing seems a lot higher.

Seems like Guerrilla marketing, nothing to fish here. Just an OLED panel won't make difference. it's the processing and hardware components pushes it further. FALD will be better than so call OLEDs. Don't go for it.

I am waiting too for Diwali, though I might even go for something like the ifFalcon K2a, if I do not get a LG C8 or similar for around 1.5 Lakhs.
