PriceSpy are reporting that JB are selling the 55” C8 for $3,608.

Checked and confirmed this on the JB website. The 65” C8 is $5,268.

Limited-time 15%-off sale.

JB also have the 55" A8F for $4078 and the 65" for $5098.
So tempting... but doubt I could get it past SWMBO.

You could always ask if you can have the X90F, which is maybe 90% as good but is only $2293 at JB

Unfortunately it's more of a timing issue... we have an 8 week old baby to look after, so priorities have changed. :(

We shall not underestimate the postive impact of a quality TV might have on a newborn baby and parents.

koboyz: Sony A8F or LG C8?


Your last two posts in this thread don’t make any sense. You have asked two unintelligible questions - what do you want to know?

- I’m indecisive to buy between this two brands.
With my current knowledge, Sony has better image processing power.
The pricing from the current market confused me.
Hence , the first question on pricing was posted.
- Secondly, I want to know the opinion from geek zone members since I think members here are more or less Tech Savvy.

So, are those two questions intelligible for you ?

LG introduced a new processing chip for the 2018 models. Reviews show pretty mixed views from people as to which has the best image, and I think it's very much a case of both having amazing picture quality and even experts struggling to pick what they prefer from the two.

 

Pricing is where brands believe they can sell it.

 

The only thing that really matters IMHO between both brands is the one thing you don't seem to be considering and that's the OS.

Luminance is down a little on the Sony compared to the LG, and my lounge has a lot of windows so I'm glad I went for the LG now it is mounted on the wall.
Small thing, but the LG also has a good android phone app capable of controlling it.

Sony have just released their A9F in America. Be interesting to see what that has to offer.

With respect to OSes;
I have no problem with WebOS, although it would be nice if the NZ one was even remotely up to date. It looks like mine is on version 3.0 while overseas they have already progressed through 3.5 to 4.0.
While android on a TV is all well and good, I'm always suspicious of its implementation and support. The UI on the Sony is very clunky.

Edit: Although I mainly use a Harmony remote, the 'magic remote' that comes with the LG is, well, magic to use. Particularly if you are wanting to enter text. For that reason the magic remote has not been stuffed away is drawer, but lives on the coffee table beside the Harmony. So if you are down to things like OS deciding your purchase, also look at the remote and remote apps available.

Yes, OS is another considering factor for me too, and to be honest the difference between 99% and 98% isn't as noticeable as how intuitive the OS we experience all the time.

 

There are some reviewers compared these two models, and here is one that I'd recommend:

 

https://youtu.be/PoKGQpLvcxA

 

Results:

 

  • Best Home Theatre TV: 1st Panasonic FZ802 (14.93 pts); 2nd Sony AF8 (14.27 pts)
  • Best Living Room TV: 1st Sony AF8 (15.82 pts); 2nd Panasonic FZ802 (15.69 pts)
  • Best Gaming TV: 1st Samsung Q9FN (4.23 pts); 2nd LG C8 (4.10 pts)
  • Best HDR TV: 1st LG C8 (4.15 pts); 2nd Panasonic FZ802 (4.13 pts)

 

 

  • Best TV of 2018: 1st Panasonic FZ802 (32.59 pts); 2nd LG C8 (31.49 pts)


My preference would be a Panny OLED with Dolby Vision enabled (doesn't exist yet).
