My Fiance and I decided we needed to buy a new TV for our bedroom (upgrade from a 32" insignia POS).
After looking at ~$500 TVs for a while, I wasn't really happy with buying anything that can be described as "entry level".
I spun the tale that a better idea was to replace the F8500 plasma in the living room
with a better TV, and the plasma can go in the bedroom, where it would do better in the low light.
She thought that was a good idea, possibly not knowing that a "Better TV" than the plasma is an OLED (muhahahaha)
We go to the store, and for some reason the sales guy tried to convince me to get a Sony 900F for the "Better Picture and Colour Processing".
He also reminded my Fiance the Sony was about $1500 cheaper. At this point I thought I was doomed to non-OLEDness...
I stuck to my guns, knowing that I wanted the C8, as I wasn't going from the Last Great Plasma, to anything but an OLED, and shockingly,
My fiance said yeah, lets get the OLED (!!!) (We booked a very expensive wedding venue the day before... That may have played a part in this).
Overall, I got it set up, and this thing is amazing... Not only is the picture incredible (lights off, Beta Fish OLED demo, G.Sus...),
but all of the apps are super easy to control and accessible (Fiance gives it an A+++ compared to my plasma that froze all the time).
Bought a 4k Blu ray player and watched Avengersin glorious HDR 4k and nearly cried a few times (at the picture, not plot)
Just wanted to share my story, super excited to join the OLED club!!
