4K 3D TVs still available
 
As of 1/15/2018: LG still has some 55-65 inch 3D 4K TVs available through various dealers: to find out what/where go to: http://www.lg.com/us/3d-tvs

I am starting this list. If you find more available, then please list the "as of date" and link. I know many of you are still looking. There is still hope, albeit, the prices have gone up now.

Thanks Bob, I just bought one as insurance in case my current TV goes bye-bye.

Which place did you purchase from if you don't mind me asking. The few places left online (after clicking on the link from the LG website) that have any in stock are charging waaay over retail, with the exception of Big Sandy Superstore, which I've never heard of.

3DBob 01-23-2018 03:07 PM

Here's another site that has a few in stock from Hisense--(owned by Sharp): https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ..._class_4k.html Appears to be full retail priced.

I have a Hisense 50" non-3D 4k TV in my summer home and it's excellent.

I bought mine online (eBay) from HiDef Lifestyle. It was an open box unit with full warranty, but that was the last one they had. Big Sandy is a reputable furniture and appliance store based in Pikeville, KY with a few other locations scattered around in Appalachia. I tried buying one from them, but their supplier had no more units.

I hunted for days before locating my LG OLED set. There are still a few LED units around (3D Bob just provided a link), but 3-D OLED is getting super-scarce.

It's too bad about Big Sandy not having any more units. They still show as in stock on their website, although as a "special order item". Perhaps they just haven't updated their site to reflect that they are out of stock.

I am only interested in an LG 55E6P or 65E6P, if I were able to find one at a reasonable price. I currently have a Sharp Elite Pro-70X5FD which has been an excellent 1080P tv with terrific 3D, so if nothing pans out, I can always look into getting a 4K 3D projector down the road. Such a shame about the current state of 3D TVs though.

:(

Cross It Off Your List
 
You can cross the 2016 lg 65 and 77 oleds off your list, c6p, e6p, and g6ps. They are gone. One g6p 65 on amazon at retail; probably gone by end of day. A few on ebay but not backed by an lg distributor. And that's it.

Be very careful with "open box" ones(except from people like hi-def mentioned above; very good company and easy to work with). They were returned probably due to misaligned filters and/or picture issues. These were very fragile tvs, as they were 5 and 6 feet across and made of nothing but a piece of glass.

It looks like everybody who wanted one got one though. I hope.

** Please note
Although Mr. Bill writes about the knowledge of a misaligned filter issue, He has yet to provide any photographic evidence that will differentiate this misalignment claim with one that supposedly does not.... 🤠

Brought my 65" OLED E6 home Saturday, pawn shop find, checked it out a couple weeks ago and decided to pull the trigger on it. It's sitting on floor in basement until I get mount in for it. Also ordered a 125" drop down 4K audio transparent screen. Going to replace my current projector screen which is a fixed frame 140". So I will have the best of both worlds in the same theater space. And it will also be ready to upgrade to 4K projector, current screen is not 4K.

wildbill722 02-28-2018 08:59 AM

Congratulations Tom!
 
I bet you are breathing a sigh of relief. Congratulations on the find. The e6 is the best there is in my opinion.

tomtastic 02-28-2018 09:11 AM

Accept I'm a nervous wreck. It's literally just two pieces of 1/8" glass glued together! Also it's really hard to get ahold of this thing because you can't get your hands under it, there's no clearance between the bottom of screen and whatever's under it. I wonder how many of these have been shattered just from moving them?

The vesa mount on back is also a problem. I'm going to need to cut the brackets at bottom to fit it on screen, the speaker bar at bottom sticks out behind which you could add the spacers but I'd rather have it flush against the back. The brackets will also stick below the screen unless you cut them. I think I'm just going to cut the bottom off the brackets so it's flush and doesn't stick below screen.

Anyway, I'll be glad when it's mounted and off the floor. It's got a blanket over it with shrink wrap around the screen for now against wall, waiting on new projector screen and will tackle mounting both of them when that comes in next week.

The link goes to a 65C7P, which is not 3D.

You beat me to it :D. Yes, C6 is but those are C7's which are not. There's one for 2K with shipping but it's scratch and dent. At this point you have to find them locally. I'd want to test them first since they're used now. If you buy online better make sure they have the original shipping container, these things look very fragile.

Crap. I thought I'd be a hero. Nope, just a goat.

I think I saw one at Beach Camera for $5K! Supply and demand, baby!

Yeah even the ones with a pixel or two out may very well be fixable with certain procedures, if the price gets low enough on them. Worth keeping an eye out for a spare or your go to tv if they are fixable.

Is there a procedure for fixing an entire column of stuck pixels? Like I have on my TV, shown in this post:

Look at this site:

https://null-byte.wonderhowto.com/ho...itors-0131651/

Not sure if this will fix a whole line. But is certainly worth a try. I fear it may be a transistor, etc. problem however. Please let us know if any of these solutions work though.

Newegg shows still in stock the 65" G6:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...5651-_-Product

As well as a few Samsung and Sony models.

NewEgg doesn't actually sell that TV, it's a listing provided for IPC Store. Any search of their actual store turns up no 3D TVs in stock, but it might be worth a try if you're feeling flush.

Yes, I it just shows in stock on Newegg could be it's not updated to show IPC stock.

There are a few open box LGs here, just outside Vancouver B.C.

Keep in mind that these are Canadian dollars, so the prices are actually pretty good.

So got the e6 mounted on Monday, didn't take long and I discovered it actually does have burn in. They had left a blu ray menu screen on running for who knows how long. I noticed it first when playing content that I had filmed and noticed a strange pattern where there should not be. Changed to different content, couldn't see it. Then discovered that it takes solid areas of color to show it. Orange backgrounds show it the most, red and green, light blue. Blue, white and black don't show it at all. I made a test file with solid colors so I could see exactly what the burn in is. Yes, the demo material they were showing, the menu screen. I can read it: Play, scene selection and set up.

Wish I had looked into this a little further on what to look for on burn in. Mostly, you can't see it with normal content. It takes solid areas of color on the left side of screen to show it. Regular viewing it isn't really visible at all until you get a large area of color on that side of screen, a sunset or something like that. I wish I had my test file on usb stick when I checked it out, could have discovered it then and I would not have bought it but I thought I could discover burn in with just regular content but you may not notice it at all then. Waiting to hear back if I can return it, I'll probably be stuck with it, oh well. It does have a nice image most of the time, but you know how it goes, once you see it, you can't unsee it and it's there forever. I've run the static removal thing twice now, didn't do anything that I could tell.

So, yeah, if you missed out on these OLED's for 3D, you're better off. High-priced junk! Wake me up when they have these fixed and I'll pick up another OLED until then I'm telling everyone to stay away from them.

Samsung 3D flat panels with HDR are available from time to time. Nothing on Ebay lately but I see a used one on Amazon for $1800. UN65JS8500. No burn-in worries. Had one for 3 years now on 16 hours a day every day as a PC monitor static images constantly. Not here to compare LED/LCD vs OLED comments. I just prefer this particular model after comparing both for myself and stating 3D with HDR can still be had. If the intentions here were OLED only, sorry but I didn't see it in the title.

Don't think it was OLED only, just 4K with 3D thread. The place where I bought the E6 had another 3D tv there. It was a 2015 LG LED model, can't remember what size or model. I'm going to look at it again maybe tomorrow.
