Please bring back this drop! The silver trim on B7 really turns me off
Any plans to have c8 drop?
Amazing TV, no regrets, great price. No issues, registration completed by MD.
When will this be back?
Anyone from the latest drop hear anything about shipping yet?

Scratch that, just received the e-mail from LG about my TV being registered and have an account made.

What is the loophole that gets around Massdrop not being an authorized dealer when Massdrop is explicitly mentioned on LG's site as such? http://www.lg.com/us/authorizeddealers/lg_online_authorized_retailers

The warranty is already registered for you. You will receive an email from LG after purchase. Thanks.
B.Hutch
@B.Hutch - I purchased an OLED on another drop, but have yet to receive a confirmation email of warranty registration from LG. The payment was processed on 4/3 and due to arrive on 4/10. I'm not getting the warm on fuzzy on this vague "it has not been an issue in the past". Having a "warranty" is one thing, but making a claim is different. In order to complete a warranty claim a receipt is typically needed. What happens if LG holds true to the "authorized" dealers only in the future? What documentation do I provide? What is the loophole that gets around the authorized dealer statement?
Only thing it's missing is IPS
WTB 65 inch Pls.
65 inch model please.

I hear ya, wish I could add it.

Just wondering, why can't you?
Is this a good deal? Did I just find the same one for $1189, or is this different: http://www.bestchoiceav.com/product-p/OLED55C7P.htm

There are a lot of reviews that indicate bestchoiceav and ebuy are basically scam sites. If you try and actually buy the TV you will end up being told it is out of stock at that price, but they can offer something else for additional money, etc etc.
All of the major players have this hovering around $1,700 right now.
Annie
Also, do some research on that company. I dont think you will want to purchase from them. They are a known bait and switch scam site.
Best tv hands down I kinda wish I bought it here for $1450. I got it from best b.. for $1700 but I had them deliver it and set it up and wall mount it though. Even though I paid more it was still worth it. I recommend this tv to any one who wants better then led/lcd and plasma. You won’t be disappointed.

Thanks man! I’ll likely pull the trigger, but really prefer the C7P. Just in case you have any more info on when that drop might resurface?

TBH inventory on the C series is getting getting thin in the channels. All of my vendor/distributor sources on that model have open PO's with LG that are not being fulfilled ATM. I will sure grab some if I have the opportunity but I am not sure if and when that will happen.
I too am looking for the 65 inch model please.
Any chance the 65 inch model is going to be available in this or an upcoming drop?
Is this drop coming back? Almost 300 people have requested it
Received my TV yesterday morning. Although I am very disappointed with how MD and the vendor handled the shipping, I did receive it. TV is great! Picture Quality is amazing. ** For anyone wondering it does come with the warranty and you have an option to extend it. ** Go to LG's website and go to "MY LG SIGN IN" use the email that is on your MD profile and choose "forgot my password" you can then reset it and confirm your TV is under warranty. ** Make sure you change your address on your profile as well.

I feel like I'm consistently whining. I received the TV, and it's absolutely great. However, I'm not as fortunate as you were regarding the warranty: - no email - no "My LG" account created - no warranty registered when I looked it up by serial number
I've already notified customer support (and had my request immediately forwarded to another department, so God-only-knows when I'll have it addressed).
As much as I'm absolutely floored by the quality of the product, the overall buying experience was poor -- I have no other words I can use to describe it. It has made me question just ponying up the extra $200-$300 for peace of mind versus: - less immediate availability (which I understand given the nature of MD's business), - uninformed customer service, - lack of immediate (or even near-immediate) feedback as it pertained to the order/delivery status -- to the point that the customer has to do all of the legwork to ensure the order is received, and - promised items missing from the order (in my case, THE WARRANTY).
I cannot say I would go through this again, and I can't, in good conscience, recommend it to anyone I know.

Lemme help you out, sir. ABT.com, initialize anchat with customer service, and ask for best price. You're welcome. 👍
In case anyone was wondering: my TV shipped last week, I received warranty registration info including the S/N from LG while it was in transit and it was delivered Monday. I have it sitting in my basement running through a break-in slideshow right now.
I strongly recommend doing a 200~ hour break-in on these and then calibrating after, it will substantially lower the odds of image retention and result in a more consistent picture quality over time.
If anyone would like info on the subject I’d be happy to help or you can search for D-Nice over on AVS forum. He’s an expert calibrator who’s been heavily involved in the video community for a really long time and I’ve used his recommendations in the past.
The TV looks great and I can’t wait to it set up and ”retire” my FD-111 Kuro plasma! It only took 9 years for a TV to come out that I felt the quality was worth replacing it ;)
On thursday i got a notification from MD that my TV was shipped with AUSTRALIA POST and with a wrong shipping number... I contacted MD help desk and they said they can't really help me other than saying that it wasn't shipped with Australia Post. They told me they COULDN'T contact the vendor to fix the tracking information and that I'll just have to sit and wait until the vendor updates the information. That to me is completely unacceptable MD is the middle man between the consumer and the vendor. I have no idea when my TV is coming and have to ask my neighbors to be vigilant for when my TV comes.
Received my TV on Friday and boy is it nice. Really impressed with the quality and it was a great upgrade from my 42", few year old LCD TV.
That said, I need to complain a touch about Massdrops shipping notification set up for this.
Had it not been for another users suggestion to check FedEx's Delivery Manager, I would 100% have missed it's arrival on Friday. I got emails from FedEx Thursday night it was shipped, and Friday morning that it was out for delivery with an estimated time frame and that I'd need to sign. It came in that time frame and I signed and things were great.
At 10pm on Friday night, 10 hours AFTER I received my TV, MD emailed me that the TV was being shipped to me. Then on Saturday at 3PM I got an email that it had been delivered. For an item you MUST sign for this kind of stuff is just not acceptable. There was also little to no communication from MD to those who asked about shipping so I hope everyone else follows suit and checks FedEx and doesn't rely on MD's notifications.

Same here still haven't received my TV. On thursday i got a notification from MD that my TV was shipped with AUSTRALIA POST and with a wrong shipping number... I contacted MD help desk and they said they can't really help me other than saying that it wasn't shipped with Australia Post. They told me they COULDN'T contact the vendor to fix the tracking information and that I'll just have to sit and wait until the vendor updates the information. That to me is completely unacceptable MD is the middle man between the consumer and the vendor. I have no idea when my TV is coming and have to ask my neighbors to be vigilant for when my TV comes.

I had a similar experience apart from the cutting-it-close shipping window. I emailed Customer Service the night I was estimated to have the item shipped. I received a reply the next afternoon stating the item hadn't been shipped..... hours AFTER FedEx notified me of a shipment to my home address, complete with a shiny new tracking number. AND, my transaction status has the shipment date a day after the actual shipment was en route. There's no excuse for the customer to have to do this much legwork, especially to get some peace of mind after completing a VERY expensive purchase.
Hey so for some reason I got an email my TV was shipped but it says it was with Australia Post? Did anyone else get this error?
This is my first product I've joined on Massdrop, so I'm really excited! I need to stay home to receive the shipment, so I'm trying to figure what day the TV is showing up. I read on another drop, their TV showed up on the shipment date. Does anyone know if "shipment" date is actually the delivery date? I haven't received any tracking info yet. :\

i just got my actually massdrop notification that the drop has shipped. so hopefully you'll get that soon.
Same thing for me. Thanks for the tip Fadm.
When they said ships March 14th.....what form of shipment will be used? If I live in NYC, how many days likely until arrival? Thanks everyone!
Yarga
See my reply above. Recommend signing up for a FedEx delivery manager service. It's free and you can check any package on its way to your address
Fadm
Well, I signed up for the Fedex manager...but no delivery in queue.....
Everyone,
I will state again. These are 100% brand new unopened US spec/model product. They will have a 1 Year Warranty directly from LG with full service and support. Your registration email for your warranty will come directly from LG to your Massdrop email address with your SN# on file with them.
Massdrop also stands behind this product and will assist in any way necessary to make sure you get support from LG. Our community support team is here if you ever need us.
What is listed on the drop description page is exactly what you will receive.
Cheers.

Yep, its pretty awesome! So glad your happy!
B.Hutch
Can you provide an estimate of delivery? I still see an "estimated ship date" of 3/14.....I created a FedEx Delivery Manager account and there appears to be NO delivery in progress. I have sent two emails to Massdrop customer service without response......
All I called LG and asked if massdrop.com is an authorized reseller. They said no and that the warranty would not be honored so I cancelled my order

Seems like you and B.Hutch are working hand in hand. My post is old and I have moved on. If you buy it enjoy. If you are involved with the seller understand some may have issues with the warranty implications. If anything needs to Stop it is you posting to my old comments. You are the one keeping my post alive. It seems disingenuous and shady for your "boss" to link your approval as it potentially benefits his sales. I had no veiled motives with my posts. I only voiced a concern others have had in the past. Look at the other post. I wasn't the only one with the concern. Each time you respond to my comment I receive an email. There are much more meaningful things to worry about than my old post. Life is short move on and enjoy your purchase or your sales. Whichever side you stand on.

First of all: two weeks isnt an “old” post and as it was a current drop and one of the most recent comments I felt it was important to point out why what you were saying was inaccurate and misleading.
Secondly: I am not in any way shape or form involved with Massdrop, the vendor, LG or any other company that could in any way be relevant to the discussion. I’m a customer who has purchased numerous things over the past several years and dealt with both Massdrop and Vendor customer service and warranty issues in the past.
Also, I don’t work in sales, marketing, business or any other related industry (anymore), but I do have a background in sales/management and I have sold TVs and worked directly with their reps in the past (including LG). So I *do* know how these things work and I’m speaking as both a customer AND someone with knowledge of the process specifically related to THIS product and not an entirely unrelated industry.
Finally: I was posting BECAUSE other people might be concerned and you were posting false/misleading information and overwhelmingly driving the conversation. People need to know that you don’t know what you’re talking about and understand how Massdrop works so that they can make an informed decision rather than base it on completely unfounded concerns.
So to be extremely clear:
Massdrop is not a reseller. Period. When you make a purchase from them what you are really doing is authorizing them to make a purchase from a vendor on your behalf as part of a group. You purchase is through the vendor, not Massdrop, and as such your warranty is through the vendor.
Massdrop makes their money by taking a fee for facilitating the purchase and providing customer service and warranty assistance. If they weren’t trustworthy it would undermine their entire business model and they would go out of business extremely quickly.
Oh, and I’ve already received my warranty registration from LG with my S/N for the TV that was delivered Monday. I got the warranty info before it even arrived (while it was in transit). So I can also state definitively that LG is honoring the warranty.
Now I would kindly ask you to cease replying to me, I don’t appreciate being accused of being a shill or an employee masquerading as a customer by some random jerk who can’t just admit he was wrong.
I like the Sony 930e better than the LG Oleds. Any chance that TV can become a drop sometime soon?
Could a Massdrop rep please explain why LG has explicitly listed Massdrop.com as an unauthorized reseller? :(

LG has a handful of names on the "Unauthorized" list that are strange additions. I don't doubt that Massdrop is legit, I just hope this eventually gets sorted out.
If you read that page carefully, it does not say they will not honor the warranty. It says they want to "ensure that consumers receive...(d) Warranty offered by LG". They want to "ensure" you are buying a legit product etc. It's a veiled threat maybe but they can't legally withhold a warrantee they have promised with their product. At least in California, a manufacturer cannot deny a warrantee regardless of the retailer. LG wants to control pricing. Typically a manufacture would control distribution tighter to keep the product out of the hands of a retailer who discounts it. That is what Apple does. LG wants the sales, so they are using scare tactics to keep you with the full priced retailers. That's not so classy but nothing requires you to fall for it...
The 65" model is listed on dell.com for $2300 and includes a free 3d 4k bluray player. With special financing 0% for 12 months and 6% cash back, Dell.com has the better deal. Dell.com is also on the list of authorized lg dealers.

Sorry for not initially including the link.

OLED65C7P + UP870 bluray player for $2300. If you have absolutely no need for a bluray player, you are getting $100 off at massdrop, but Dell is an authorized dealer, and if you finance you will get $137 back in rewards and not have paid any interest if fully paid off in 12 months. to me this seems to be no brainer
Jonaner
That link is still at $2,797.
I’ve been waiting for this model price to drop for a few months now, knowing the 2018 version should hit the shelves soon. $1500 is the best I’ve seen. Could it go lower?

I got one late last year for $1,475 (approx) and I love it. It was a 55" and has the best blacks and a super crisp picture. Great from 4K/HDR gaming from my PC and PS4 Pro. Excellent 120hz refresh native as well.
Margins on TVs are low to begin with, so that there is a discount from retail on this is something of a miracle. I looked at prices for LG's 65, which I bought in the last drop for this, and I saved about $300 off the price as well as on tax and shipping, another $350 I would have paid (I live in a high tax state), and I saved $650 on the 65". I'm happy with that. I expect the savings are smaller on the 55", but these are really good tvs (I have the best Plasma, ten years old now, and the palette for this is much more refined. Still exploring, but really happy with the LG.)
For those techies out there that want to calibrate their TV without spending a fortune, check out the THX tune-up app. Trick is that you need a HDMI out or some adapter or cord that can go to full HDMI. I purchased a USB-C to HDMI cord for about $18. I recommend a cable longer than the one i got which was 4ft, definitely get 5+. And your phone needs to be one of the select few that are compatible with the app unfortunately. Look at the description of the app in Google Play or Apple App Store.
Tuning was fairly easy, not flawless because it doesn't tell you all the steps to get the best picture but it's more than a good start. It absolutely gives you a better picture and will make you that much happier with your purchase.
