Hardly a knockdown price - it's gone up over £500 since Black Friday and the New Year! Keep seeing reference made to ghosting too. Would be good to get your view on that issue.

This is when you see the trustworthy of a website. Saying these are the best prices ever is a false statement and mislead customers to buy through their link and get some money commission from it.

Make me think whether we should trust their reviews as well...

I don't know if the price has leapt back up, but it's currently showing as £2499 - which is the most expensive it's been for nearly 4 months. It did drop to £1899 a couple of days ago, which is cheaper than Black Friday, but £50 more than it was for the first couple of weeks this year. £1899 was a good price but when WHF quotes these "deals", I wish it would quote the actual deal price in the article, and the actual date of the quote - as a lot of these deals are short lived.

This is the first time in 25 years I cannot trust What HI-FI. The prices have gone up £750 in the past 2 weeks and this article is helping LG with their price fixing to clear the C9 65" at this inflated price before CX becomes available!

The Black Friday price for this TV was around £1650

I'm sure many people got this TV based on the What HI-FI review!

This current price is pathetic it's not a good deal as you suggest. I bought this same television for 65"C9 for £1679.00 with 6 year Warranty. Great television. But not at £2500. What hifi accepting bribes? Dissapointing. Most reviews done are generic . It's not technical enough.

Reading elite AV sites is now just a giant Sth. Korean TV promotion. Casual lookers could be inclined to gather only LG produce a good OLED TV product. And Samsung over power by sheer amount of review sets, the AV sites TV lists for the current year. Funnier still is how many Par for the course LED TVs actually hang with or laughably beat Sony OLED in verdicts. Even newly released £2k LG entry level 55" OLED TVs get reviewed in same class of a £1k FALD 6,7 series. But the LG Sammy narrative doesn't include Panasonic's self emissive display heritage or Sony veteran cinema modes w/Hz sync.

It's just feels like AV sites regarding TVs are like spokespersons for relative either Korean brand.

The price fixing was related to cashing in on the final week of the Sky deal. Now that deal has expired the price should be coming down mid-feb as stock in UK will have to be cleared before CX model release date estimated in U.K for late April.

If you click on the Peter Tyson link by WHF it’s £1999 - the best price currently! I bought this TV from John Lewis at £1849 which WHF were advertising at the time too. You can’t blame WHF for price fluctuations it’s due to low stock and demand and seasonal pricing. WHF advertise the best prices at the best places which if you click on the current links they are doing.

Best price currently in Costco £1859!

WHF is not advertising any prices, they simply have prices pulled from somewhere like Pricerunner etc

WHF doesn’t link to Costco prices because you have to have a membership to belong there. Besides John Lewis doesn’t even price match with them!

No thanks, OLED picture quality wins hands down in every comparison!
Completely agree. I've got the B7 55" and no screen burn. I dont play games and watch continuous news channels so there is hardly anything that effects my TV.

C9 has some tech that prevents the burn-in issue.

Samsung fanboy hasnt got a clue!

I suppose I am a bit of a fanboy! :) But I do own the LG 65C9 and the Samsung and I have owned 6 other OLED TVs so haven’t got a clue comment is highly inaccurate!
