A Huge LG OLED 4K HDR TV For $1000 Off? That’s Right, With These Deals
Stephan Jukic – March 27, 2019
Among all the premium 4K HDR TVs of 2018 and into early 2019, the LG OLED’s still pack almost unbeatable punch and any opportunity to get your hands on one at a discounted price is a solid deal for fantastic picture quality and savings.
This is what’s happening right now with one of LG’s best 2018 OLED TVs in terms of both quality and price combined, the OLED B8, which we considered to be one of the single best 4K TVs released last year.
We don’t consider the B8 to be good just for the sake of flogging the deals in this post. As we explain in detail in our 2018 review of this television model, it simply rocks across the board for a number of very unique reasons. For starters, OLED TVs like LG’s B8 have one unusual trait that’s rarely seen in LCD 4K HDR televisions. This is their tendency to deliver virtually identical display and motion handling performance across all models at all prices for any year’s lineup. Thus, the B8, which is the cheapest of LG’s 2018 OLED ultra HD TVs, delivers almost exactly the same color quality, OLED-perfect contrast and black levels, motion handling and HDR specs as LG’s most expensive ultra-premium 2018 OLED TVs do. You get the same performance for a much lower price as a result. Where the B8 mostly differs from its cousins is in design and audio performance, but NOT display output.
With that in mind, the picture quality created by the B8 is superb, with total, perfect black levels, infinite contrast of a kind that only OLED display technology can create and OLED dimming capability in which each individual pixel on the screen can be turned on or off for perfect shifts between dark and bright scenery without any light bleed at all. OLED TVs like this model are also famous for their exceptionally precise motion handling, which few LCD TVs can match. In other words, like any LG OLED 4K HDR TV, this model delivers truly high-end performance for almost any kind of movie, TV, streaming or gaming content.
For a possibly limited time and while stocks last, the huge 65 inch edition of the LG B8 is being sold for a deeply reduced cost that has had $1000 slashed off its list price. In other words, a TV that’s normally priced at $3,299 is now going for $2,296.99 and that’s for a brand new, fully warrantied edition. You can check this out right here among all the new and used options:
The above deal applies if you go for just the LG B8 65 inch edition by itself. If on the other hand you want an extremely useful something extra for a bit more, Amazon is also offering a deal in which the 65 inch OLED B8 can be bought for just $2,496.99 but with an LG SK6Y 2.1 High Res Audio Sound Bar included as part of the package, and with free shipping for the whole bundle available. Why is the sound bar option a good one? Because most 4K TVs (even premium models) don’t offer truly deep, high quality native audio performance from their own speakers. Setting them up with an external sound system such as almost any decent sound bar absolutely improves the power, richness and depth of how well the audio from your favorite movies and other content sweeps across your living room or den.
The LG 65 inch B8 OLED deal with sound bar is available below and some more detailed specs for the B8 in its 65 inch version are listed after that:
