65 Inch Choice factoring in the price differential - LG C7 vs C8 vs Sony A1

Recommended Posts

Would be reading a few reviews  on this prior to purchase - full array local dimming fails to overcome contrast/black level shortcomings of IPS panel. Another LED 'flop' from LG.

Yep, not a stunner of a TV.Blacks appear greyish and the local dimming is mediocre (better than none, but only just).
For that money I'd MUCH rather the Sony X9000F or even Samsung NU8000.

the Sony X900F would appear to hit the 'sweet spot' for those requiring a decent LCD FALD TV at a reasonable price - saw a 65" version in JBs the other day for about $2900.   As a long time Samsung customer, it pains to see the overpricing in the QLED range - $4300 for a 65" (edge lit) Q7 is absurd and the FALD Q8 & Q9 are way overpriced IMHO.  The NU8000 is a better option for the budget buyer; decent screen uniformity and colour gamit despite the edge lighting.  

 

Pity the TCL 6 series is not available in Australia; full array local dimming for the 65" version in the US for under a grand which equates to about $1800 in AU.

Yes, a huge shame we get very substandard TCL sets here compared to the 'same' models in the US.
