I've tried to search for LG OLED 2017 Series from JBHifi and Harvey norman and such.
But the LG TVs line seemed to disappear for a week now. 

 

Is LG preparing to showcase their 2018 TV line up ?

They have been clearing out stock for the last month. Unless you find a retailer with stock you won't find many around. There have been some amazing deals - 65 C7's were down to $4199 last week. if you did't grab one then you're probably too late.

 

Noel Leeming are still stuck in the dark ages trying for sell their 65 B7's for $6299 though - a TV I wouldn't want to pay any more than $3000 - $3300 for based on the C7 pricing. They do still have stock of these.

New OLED models from LG, Panasonic and Sony due in June apparently (from a couple of different retail sources). Back up to last year's launch prices again too. Such is the consumer electronics price seesaw.
Have had my eye on an OLED for a while, but the plasmas we have refuse to fail (bound to, now I've made that comment!).

Actually, I have to correct the above post. I just visited Harvey Norman's Friday the 13th sale. They have the new C8 and E8 LG OLEDs in-store now (sitting alongside C & E 7s). The C7 (55") was $3800, the C8 $5500.
Salesman said Panna and Sony due May/June.

I was searching online and found that NoelLeeming B6 which is ridiculously priced. 
And same thought with you.

Thanks for update.

 

I didn't go to the store but online searching. 

 

So, It's the best time to grab C7?

Only you would know if that is a good price for your circumstances. Just don't buy a floor model. I have seen some horrible burn in on some display sets. Caused by not being shutdown properly so the leveling cycle can operate.

JB HiFi have 55" Panasonic OLED on special for $2,997 (online only deal I guess). I know it's not a LG but not too bad for that price.

Last week.

 

Doubt you'll find any now as everybody kept reducing prices to clear stock.

Many would argue the Panasonic and Sony were better TV's despite using the same panel. They both had better processing chips.

If of interest, there are a few shootouts on YouTube people made for these OLED TVs. Though they all use LG panels, the performance of them, according to published reviews, varies marginally from one manufacturer to the other.

 

From memory, the only two drawbacks of EZ950 are: lack support for Dolby Vision and screen reflection. And it's good at colour accuracy (subjective) and motion handling.
