How is it?

Pretty good, the shipping box came in one piece, well packed. The TV is great. I came from a Samsung LED DLP from 2009 :P
Has anybody received a TV yet ???

I would hope not. I have only joined one other drop before this, and that shipped on the posted estimated ship date.

I got a tracking number yesterday how about you ??
Are there any updates on the shipment? It has been two days since the estimated ship date, but still hasn't seen a tracking number or heard anything from Massdrop.

I agree. This feels like someone really dropped the ball on this order. 5 days after estimated ship date and no official status update from Massdrop is just bad customer service.
rocfob
I cancelled my order and asked for a refund. It's a shame they can't do better than this.
Today is the ship date...when will we be given a tracking #? Thanks.
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: https://www.engadget.com/2018/01/05/pirates-risk-being-left-in-the-cold/
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.
Unboxed it last night. Damn it's huge. The packaging was a little funky, duct taped stryofoam? I had never seen that before but it worked. If you're not like me and actually are friends with your neighbors, have someone swing by and help you set it up, it may be "thin and light" but 54 lbs spread 65" diagonally is really awkward to maneuver alone.
Picture was amazing, but I bought it for the low input lag, and the low input lag was great! Sound was weak but I hooked up my Sonos and that was fixed.
Overall this was a fantastic drop! I was impressed with the fast shipping, low price, and high quality product.

They worked amazing and I am extremely impressed with this TV
dinedal
can i ask how much it was ?
From what I gather the biggest weakness of this TV is it's sound. Can anyone recommend a decent sound solution to go along with it?
westrom
Define 'decent'. If you're buying a $2000 tv then I assume that you want audio of equal quality to the video. It depends on what all equipment that you have, but I would cheat a bit and get an Oppo hd blueray player. They have fantastic audio processing and come with pre-outs for speakers. The only downside is that it will only have a single hdmi input for additional sources which will work if you just have a Shield. Alternatively, you could get a good Dennon or Marantz Receiver if you need more source inputs. From there you need to pick out your speakers, but thats a much broader subject. Please consider if you have a home or are in an apartment, your space, if you want surround sound. Generally, avoid soundbars, or speaker systems in a box.

Hey westrom, here’s the thing: its unfortunately very easy to do better than speakers built into a display panel. With how small the tv‘s speakers have to be, and how they have to be sandwiched between the panel and the wall, they’re just never going to be good according to physics.
You could buy some inexpensive bookshelf speakers from Pioneer or Polk, and a cheap powered amp from TEAC or NAD or someone, and immediately feel the richer, more full sound. But I agree with Wyman: this TV is an investment in great visuals, it would be a shame to do the equivalent of buying a top of the line computer graphics card but only buy a slow 2-core CPU, or to put expensive paint, decals, and spoilers on a slow car. Great audio can expand the entertainment well beyond the frame of your TV screen.
I recommend a nice AVR from Denon or Marantz also, or a couple other nice brands out there, and get a surround setup of ELAC speakers at your budget. Currently, I can’t fit a whole surround setup in my house, but I am enjoying my all-Massdrop setup of PS Audio Sprout II and two Chane bookshelf speakers... kind of a budget setup, but it sounds Beautiful and I’m still happy with it after using my expensive headphone setups.
I just got a FedEx notification about a 63 lb package scheduled for delivery tomorrow. The only thing that makes sense is this TV is being delivered.
Is anyone else expecting?
junki
Did you get your package? I got a similar notification from Massdrop about FedEx delivering next week. Too psyched!
Hi, I would like to confirm the TV will look the same as in the images. I see on youtube LG B7 reviews with a TV stand that is parabolic (kind of like a crescent) in shape. It is a wide stand and my TV table is kind of narrow. I want to make sure that the TV comes with the narrow stand shown in the images. Thanks. Edit: thanks everyone for the helpful info

I have a B7A 55" and it does not have the crescent stand. I'm not sure about the 65 inch. I expected a crescent stand but got a trapezoidal one. I'm happy with the one I got, it's most likely better than the crescent one.
imtheproof
Good. I don't like the crescent stand either. Can't wait to receive mine so I can finally game and watch movies in HDR!
I was able to get the C7 version on a great deal earlier this year. The differences between this B7 and the C7 I have are minimal, mostly sound if I recall right. In my experience, OLED is the real deal - best picture I've ever seen on a TV (with good 4K content). I researched and tested a lot of TVs while I waited for the right deal. If you are in the market for a $2600 TV, you are going to have a hard time finding a better picture.
If you want to see it's full potential, you'll probably find yourself investing in a 4K blu-ray player and good source content too. My two demo discs are The Great Wall and Lucy. Neither is going to contend for a best picture award, but then again you don't have to worry about a gripping story distracting you from the great eye (and ear) candy.
Be prepared to be somewhat underwhelmed with some 4K content though - it's not all great. Some is hard to tell from 1080p. On the other hand, this set does a great job of upscaling good 1080p content too. So much so that I have no intention of buying new versions of any of the blu-rays I already have.
I would pick this one up if i didn't already have mine.
Great price, wish I had the funds would definitely buy.
I don't really understand why the prices are so much cheaper on amazon for a TV with almost identical specs.. http://amzn.to/2wSdWoG

OLED is a massive price premium right now
dieyen
LCDs don't even compare to OLED. Seeing is believing
Im in India Bangalore is there shipping available for this tv
I was going to join the drop and then did some searching and was able to find the set for 2350 from an authorized dealer shipped to my house. Wasn't in the market for another 4K set, but I have been waiting a very long time (10+ years) for OLED sets to hit the market and the prices have finally come down to a managable level.
garrettwp
Where did you find it for 2400?
kennyt85
Beach Camera you will have to call them to get the pricing. I just received the TV set tonight.

I literally just called the Miami store and asked the sales rep about the model number. He said it's the B7. (The picture in the ad is irrelevant. It's just a stock photo.)
It's in-store only, but commenters on the Slickdeals site say that Best Buy might price match it. I haven't tried, though. Obviously YMMV.
See above comment
Is Massdrop and "authorized retailer"? Would like to get the Square Trade extended warranty on this through Costco, but it won't work unless it's purchased from an authorized retailer.
SR13
Massdrop is an authorized re-seller of LG products and any LG products purchased through Massdrop will have the full warranty and support through LG.
I have the B6 55 inch from last year, OLED is totally worth it. My only regret is not getting the 65 inch version.

I know, that's one of the reasons I went with the 55 inch.
rhenom
Same here. Hard to justify $1000 for 10"
I like the deal but want 3D so will have to search for an older model
Load 1 more comment
Yes, manufacturers have discontinued it, but the last Blue Ray I bought of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 had 3D on it. The problem is you have to find a year old TV since they new ones are no longer made with it. I still like it though.
vitop
Sure. I wanted to note that 3D TV's will be hard to find. Sounds like you've discovered that yourself. :) I have several 3D movies that I have to watch on the 46" Panasonic I bought 5 years ago.
2249 with shipping from joetv....yet again in less than 5 min I can find stuff cheaper than on here....unsubscribing cause it's never a "good deal."

It's $400 cheaper than Costco, or BB, so if a warrantied set, then a pretty good price. Lots of places have it advertised in the $2200 range, but not one of them is an authorized reseller....and most are known for bait-switch tactics.

This will have the full warranty and support from LG for 1 Year.
