For sure if you want today's 3D technology!
I bought my B6 about the same time as OwnerOfLg (just after the 2017 specs were announced) and have waited with bated breath to see if LG or Sony would make it obselete in a year or two -- didn't happen. Slight upgrade sure, but huge clearly visible improvements? -- No!
So now I'm set until HDMI 2.1 finally gets wrapped up, rolled out and settles down. When? My bet is circa 2021 or later. (But see the quote from Bill Greenwald below.) And will that make a significant difference? IMO, for most people even at the higher end (OLED) and "tech freak" type, No. We have a long way to go before HDMI 2.1, HDR standards, 4K distribution methods and software catches up enough to "DEMAND" a new TV upgrade -- let alone deal with 8K.
From PC Mag, Jan 2018:
When Will It Matter?
Don't worry about getting new HDMI 2.1 devices and cables for now. It won't even be an option for most of this year, and widespread consumer adoption won't get rolling until 2019. In fact, the HDMI Forum won't finish publishing its HDMI 2.1 compliance testing specification, which is required to certify HDMI 2.1 products, until Q3 2018.
More importantly, that backward compatibility I mentioned means your TV, Blu-ray player, and other devices won't suddenly stop working when everything else has HDMI 2.1. The HDMI 2.0 devices you've bought in the last few years will still handle up to 4K60 video, and even when you get something new with HDMI 2.1, it'll still work just fine with everything else in your home theater. It just won't support 8K60.
