    Works on the B9 too, which is nice.

    Just been playing Star Wars Fallen Order and lightsabers look amazing with HDR enabled. Anyone thinking about getting an OLED do it! Much better than and any LCD monitor available.

    It gives me a rough enough idea. If they can sell it at a profit over there at a certain price that is lower than here it means they can do it here and will do eventually. I am even happy to wait another 4-5 months if I have to. I know the B8 went as low as £850 before the B9 showed up.

    Everyone thinks differently, but if I can get it for £900-£1000 it means I saved over £1000 vs launch price (according to camel camel). That’s more money to spend on something else. It will pay for my PS5 and RTX 3070 ;)

    People all laughed when I suggested these would be this price when I mentioned it in the Alienware OLED thread. The Alienware one is a waste of money imo.

    Oh no lol! I'll buy it and keep it. Its directly from samsung. Using NHS discount 25% off so if they blackfriday the 75'' to say £3,000 then it looks like a steal

    Also to everyone that has got the LG OLEd.. do you guys see what i mean now compared to any PC LCD monitor?

    People can prance around with their crappy LG 38' ultrawide or 34'' ultrawide FALDs or CRG9s.. but they all look PATHETIC next to these!

    Was not judging. Just sounded like a funny thing to say :p

    But be careful man, you may not be able to live with QLED after having OLED. Once the impressiviness of sheer size of the TV wears of you might be left wanting.

    Not saying it will happen, but maybe.

    Been saying this for the past 3+ years :p




    For the people looking at OLED TVs, if the B/C 9 drops to £1200 or less, just buy it, no point waiting around as it isn't going to drop that much more and you'll just be playing the waiting game when the next models get announced, rinse and repeat.

    Unlike the LCD monitors, these OLED TVs are actually worth the ££££.

    £1049 is the best I've seen so far for the B9, that's with 5yr warranty.

    Lol. If I did that I would have had to pay 2K for the years model on release. Yea no thanks. That's mental.

    I have been happy to wait for 120HZ 4K VRR OLED TV. Now we have that I wait for it to drop to under a grand. With the money saved I will get a PS5 and RTX 3070 ;)

    Great price that!

    In the grand scheme of things, when spending ££££, an extra hundred or 2 isn't that much really.

    Well there's bit of a difference between 1k and 2k.... :p

    How long have you been saying about getting an OLED now? :D Wait till you see, next gen oleds info. will be announced or leaked soon enough and then you'll be waiting for them to be released and waiting for them to drop in price instead, and there goes another year where you could have been enjoying OLED goodness :D :p ;)

    My thoughts exactly. There’s no point spending a wad of cash on a 2080ti, if you’re not going to push it by pairing it with a next gen display.

    “Monitors” right now are a terrible waste of money. It hasn’t always been this way and perhaps monitors will -once again- catch up; but the situation we’re in now is that monitor tech is severely lagging behind consumer TV tech (even FALD; but especially OLED).

    I’m using OLEDs for all my gaming needs across PC and console.

    I have always said I would wait for 2019 models with HDMI 2.1 and then buy one once they drop in price which is what is staring to happen, so not been waiting any longer than I anticipated ;)


    Yep. Haha.

    Depends on what you want I guess. Do love my OLED, but it hasn’t replaced everything. Still probably game more on my monitor due to high refresh rate and K+M.

    There was a time some years ago when I had a 32” 1080p tv which was £150. I couldn’t care less at the time for picture quality although even compared to my OLED it wasn’t half bad. I enjoyed what I was watching/playing vs what I was playing it on. I miss that.

    yeah but if ur gaming on a couple of 1080p tvs.. why waste money on a 2080ti..

    dont get me wrong.. my best gaming moment of this year has been final fantasy tactics on my psp. graphics arent the be all and end all but i struggle to understand why people budget for a 2080ti and smack it with a disgusting screen.
