Sony A8F vs LG C9

Folks trying to decide between these two, price is almost same after Costco’s 15% cash back on LG C9, in fact LG C9 is $100 cheaper than Sony A8F. I am looking to replace my ten year old pioneer elite Kuro pro 151FD. I will be wall mounting the TV and I do not have a sound bar. This will be a bright family room general purpose TV, not for ht / gaming.

A few things to consider. First, since the Sony is last year's model, I would think you could get a better deal than more than the C9. I thought the MSRP for this year's Sony, the A8G, is actually less than the C9 MSRP. Of course, street prices can vary. IMO, the C9 is better than the A8G, and the A9G is better than the C9. But all 3 are pretty close. Second, since you say the family room is bright, you may want to consider an LCD if you cannot control ambient light and you watch a lot during the day.

I rarely do any daytime viewing, unless there is a soccer game in the middle of the day. Sound is important to me as well.

I have owned many LG products and many Sony products. Both companies make great products. However I feel LGs customer service is light years ahead of Sony.

LG OLED55C6P
Sony STRDH770, Sony UBP-X800, Sony PS3 160

I have an A9G, but would definitely go with the C9 over an A8F, which is outdated in several ways compared to the C9.
