The US Conversion based upon Korean MSRP is $22.5K as posted at Engadget this morning which likely makes this thing more like two and a half Samsung 75" and 5-6 times a Sharp 80". Regardless, boutique panel for sure when the MSRP is priced as a car not a tv. Gets them bragging rights in some respects at trade shows but it does little to generate profits when 99% lack the $resources or common sense to buy in at those prices -

LG has been a boastful braggard at CES about three years running but has delivered next to nothing in these large sizes at affordable consumer prices for the past three years - they are Trade Shows Whores that pander to consumer desires but have failed to deliver ANY of these large panels the past 3 years outside of the confines of the Billionaire Emirates over in the OIL Empire..smile.gif

I do own a new LG Washer/Dryer set that is outstanding though but after witnessing their boasts and promises the past three years on these big ass TV's with no results it just makes you want to question anything they promise in the Media or Trade Shows when they are simply playing and sparring with fellow Korean rivalry Samsung - Macho horseplay every CES but Samsung seems to deliver on most of it's promises comparatively when it comes to these HT +Size panels.

Manufacturer prices overseas ever rarely match what they offer their products for in the states.

Neither is the actual product. Westa is correct, what is marketed and what actually hits the shelves are two different things. LG is has been doing this for the last few years to the point that any info released, for me, goes in one ear and out the other.

I stand by my statement since if the Korean Price ( in $) is about 22K then I certtainly expect the actual US MSRP to be more then 15K$

Which will cost more this set or the 55 inch OLED?
post #98 of 115
Definitely the 84" 4K will cost more. Rumor is 55" OLED will be around $10,000 and the 84" 4K LCD around $15,000 in the US. The size difference is quite substantial though, with the 84" having a whopping 133.26% larger viewing area. I don't think many that visit this forum would consider a 55" home theater" any more, but that may depend on their viewing area.

The Sony and Toshiba are both using LG's 84" 4K panel, so out of them all the LG should be the cheapest. The 84 units being sold by LG this year in Korea has a price tag equivalent of about $22K USD, but it comes with a package of LG electronics like blu-ray, camcorder, audio, etc. that adds about $2-3 retail. Given that US price are usually cheaper, somewhere around $15K street is reasonable. The Sony should street around $22K and the Toshiba somewhere in the middle, maybe around $18K. Unfortunately, for me I don't consider 15K for a TV to be so little, but I understand what you mean, when plasma first came out they where probably the equivalent of 20 or 30 thousand of today's dollars.

Is the LG edge lit like the Sony? I am waiting for the sharp 70 inch 945 model to see if that will be local dimming.I have the LG LV 9500 and an Samsung 81F both local dimming and will not buy anything that is not local dimming.
Their is nothing like a TV , when the screen goes dark and the lights are out, you can not see the TV

Pricing revealed on Engadget $20K
post #105 of 115
Predictions were true. 15-16K street price. Which one of you guys is going to be the first to get it in the US.

LG’s biggest, most detailed and most expensive television, the 84LM9600 Ultra Definition TV, will be available in Australia in mid-November for $15,999.

From what I have read it is edge-lit and has "local" dimming, not micro dimming. On the plus side, it is also an IPS panel so viewing angles are excellent for an LCD. If Sharp releases their 80" ICC-4K IGZO with Moth Eye glare free glass for sub $10K, I think I might have found my future display.

Saw this TV yesterday at Brandsmart in south Florida. MSRP is 19999.00 but it is already "on sale" at 13999.00. I couldn't do anything like changing picture mode or even have any access to the menu. It was showing a video about Brandsmart and the best I could get from the salesman was to play a Bluray disk. Unfortunately, the BD was some sort of cartoon that can make any set looking good.

This is what I could learn based on the LG leaflet glued to the TV:

-It's 4K, no questions.
-Edge lit.
-It has some kind of "premium sound" where the speakers fire from the back. The speaker are really big for a TV set.
-Off angle viewing is very good, the best I have seen so far for a LED TV.
-Power was plugged on a cheap surge protector, nothing special. I remember talking to a Sony person at a Sony Store and he told me their 84" requires "special instalation"..
-Black level was good, much better than the Sony. It seems that Sony blacks are always bluish, on any TV I have seen so far, including the 84".

About the price: Someone mentioned the Qualia 006 that was sold for 13K and had a huge fan club here. If people paid that kind of money in 2005, for a set that is not even close to this LG, why wouldn't they pay to have this fantastic TV ? Sony is twice the price and I didn't find it any better. Most of us here can't expend that dough on a TV but to expect it to be below 10k is not realistic.

Here are some more teaser photos!

I have been wanting to buy this TV since it was first shown at last years CES. But once it officially launched last fall, the price tag was as large as its screen size. Now, the price at authorized online LG retailers have it at $17,000, but I am now seeing it advertised for as low as $14,000 through non authorized online stores.

If I could buy this TV through an authorized store for $14,000-$15,000 I would jump on it, as buying from a non authorized place may not have a mfg warranty. If anyone here knows of a place that's authorized, will ship, and can sell it for $15,000 or less, please PM me.

Thanks.

Just bought one today for $12,000 with a $2,000 gift card from an Authorised retailer. To be delivered tomorrow. Excited?! I do not know. Selling point for me is that it will push content well from a HTPC.
