I'm really surprised there hasn't been more reaction to this, even given this is an M forum.

Is LG making a bold move, making a loss to dominate the high end market at this size or have they been able to significantly cut costs - maybe through opening another plant.

Or perhaps they have struck some kind of deal with Sevenoaks for future product exclusivity in return for a significant contribution to the price reduction.

Or is there a more sinister reason at play that longer term quality isn't quite what it should be and there's no fix so sell them off as quick as possible.

I am still a little sceptical as there is no chatter anywhere I have found on the web - and even Sevenoaks are not advertising this price.

Very interesting and indeed tempting but I'm trying to resist as have my heart set on the 85-88 inch market where I suspect it will still be some time before we see an OLED and I don't feel others have quite cracked it yet with LCD.

Hi Simon

It may have more to do with market realities. I bought a used LG 55" OLED a few months ago... a previous flagship model, 1080p as was my preference, for £500. I believe it's around 3.5 years old and started life at £8000, indeed I remember seeing it in John Lewis upon launch at that price. Within around 18 months LG had lowered it to £5000, then £3500 and latterly I think it was being cleared at £1800. It sounds like this model is following a similar path?

Cheers

George

Also just found that on the US LG site the 77" G7 is listed as $14,999.99 SRP and currently on promotion at $9999.99, which would tie in with the pricing here.

At that screen size, perhaps the issue is that it becomes a bit of a niche market? It's a lot of wall space for the average UK living room...

Cheers

George

If these get down to say, £2-3k, I'm going to have to start measuring up to see if I can physically get one into my basement to replace the projector and 82" screen...

Don’t forget other factors...

CES 2018 will herald the replacement G8.
W Series likely cannibalising G7 sales, and,
Pre Black Friday pricing to shift stock/warehouse space.

Please pm with a huge order list.
