Great buy and good deal. LG uses the same display panel all the way up to their $5000 sets. Buy this if your looking for OLED.
My personal opinion: if you're concerned about the price, don't buy it. This applies to all things.

In this case particularly, though, the older a product is, the sooner this will be mass dumped when the next gen arrives.
4k oled is my next purchase for a big TV.. but i got my 65 inch samsung curved just about a year ago AND i'l wait for samsung to have a mass market oled TV in another year or so.. i DO like the LG ultrawide gaming displays i use.. these are sharp and clear and have a narrow bezel..
EDIT: if it were not for property taxes (about $10k) i would probably get this after reading the comments below.. :-)
Great tv good price but I would expect that if you gonna pay that much money that one might as well spend the extra 400 to get it at a brick store for the easy return/issue handling.
We bought the 55" version at Costco a couple months ago. If you haven't seen the LG OLED in person, it's nothing short of amazing. I almost wish I had held off now that I see this deal.
This is a good deal. The 2018s will most likely be introduced at CES so for sure the 2017s will be getting cleared out. I paid 2229 Black Friday weekend. It's a very nice TV. Mine has a little of the yellow/light brown stain (for lack of a better word) on the left edge when the picture is totally white (like many commercials) - this is apparently a widespread problem if you spend any time on the various home theater forums. But for most general programming it is unnoticeable.

This is a good deal. It’s $2650 at Costco.
LETS GO BOYS
I guess the $1,799 deal at Fry's was pretty good, then!

Interesting. The Fry’s around here (Phoenix) had the 65b7a for $2296 for Black Friday. Same with Best Buy and Amazon. I haven’t seen it lower than that at any legit retailer. I’m glad I waited since this is the lowest I’ve seen it and mass drop doesn’t collect sales tax for AZ either saving me even more.
same here i have had one of the worst cust service experiences of my life from fry's.com never again
You can buy this tv for $1749 on eBuyusa today with free shipping

If you believe you'll actually get a TV at the prices they advertise, might as well by the C7 for $1640. You'll end up with a massive headache when they call to tell you some sort of story about why they can't sell you the TV for that price, and you'll spend weeks fighting trying to get your money back.

Meanwhile the people who buy through Massdrop are going to get their TV from a reputable dealer at a very good price. The only legitimate deals I've ever seen lower than this were the Fry's deal that was only applicable to those who had a local Fry's, and even then seemed a little YMMV... or else when it was $2,000 at The Exchange (where I purchased mine), which was only applicable to service members and veterans.

For the vast majority of people who couldn't access either of those deals, this is a good price on an outstanding TV.

Prime T.V.s isn't something you bargain shop at alt sites for, imo. I personally payed a little extra at Costco but got free shipping, free 90 day return and a free 7 year warranty for using the Costco Visa.
Guys, watch out, this model reportedly has the burn in issue. Please read more it

Picking up on any negative news story... like this one, which leaps from “If you use your internet connection for illegal activity (piracy), this ISP will throttle your speed down” to claiming shortly after that the ISP will kill your grandma by shutting off her smart thermostat. Of course this article belongs on April Fools (even If your internet stops, which isn’t what the ISP was saying, a smart thermostat would just continue it’s normal schedule), but it‘s funny in a kind of “what is this world coming to” kind of way:

I read a bunch of articles about burn-in too. OLEDs can get it, Plasmas, and CRT. And I have seen burn-in, at airports and bowling alleys. But I have also owned a Plasma TV since like 2007, and nothing has left permanent burn-in, not even 4 hour gaming sessions. Sometimes I’ll see ghosts for a few minutes after gaming, but they go away. Overblown issue. By the end of the Plasma development, power draw issues were overblown too... my chandelier with 5 small incandescent bulbs uses more watts per hour.

I’m not ready for a new TV yet... my decade old 720p Plasma still has fantastic colors and response time, plus all the connectors I need, but for my next TV, I won’t settle for anything less than a nice OLED. These LGs really impressed me in the stores!

I think anyone with a Plasma no matter how old has been seriously disappointed by LCD image quality. I can't wait to get an OLED myself, the first real improvement in TVs since Plasma.
What’s the difference between this and the E7P?
Knut
The E7P has a glass bezel and built in soundbar.
Knut
Not worth it for the sound bar.
