C2 will be discounted decently near Diwali I guess (but I still have a feeling won't go below 1.1-1.2L even in diwali). Planning on 55 or 65 or more :P ?

So, it's been 9 days and ICICI have not sent me any update on the status of the CC I've applied for, I've done the online KYC, doc submission and all. I'll wait for a week more, hopefully I should get the card by then. The customer care for CC is always busy, was not able to reach them.

 

Now, I see LG 55 inch C1 on Amazon from a seller from whom I've ordered a washing machine which is working fine, it's fulfilled by Amazon too. The price atm is ₹127999 minus 5% discount (eff. ₹ 121600). I see that there is a 2 year warranty on the TV. If I buy locally on EMI with discount it might be around ₹117000.

 

What do you think? Should I just get the one on Amazon or wait for CC and buy locally on EMI?

Burn in for static images does happen in oled. We used it with a set top box for a year and a half it’s been more than a year now since we stopped using set top box but I can see the set top box company’s logo when the screen is fully white. So yeah be careful with static images other than that it’s all good.

Which model do you have?

Always buy locallyy, you might get a better price or some freebies thrown in with you can let them keep for further discounts

C8, the newer ones should do a better job of mitigating it.

Hopefully. I have CX but don’t use STB, only streaming and gaming

I have LG B7 65’ OLED from 2017 and want to replace the panel, it’s not in warranty now

 

how much would a replacement cost me and can I get warranty on such replaced panel?

Took this offer to Croma. They said they will do 55” for 1.2 with 3 years warranty.

 

But they said they would do the 48” for 90k with 3 years warranty. (These are post cashback prices)

 

Maybe I need to take this price back to VS and see if they drop down to 1.15ish with 3 years warranty?

 

Does 48” for 30k cheaper seem like a much better deal? Not sure how much difference the size would make?  I want to put it in the bedroom and my beds pillow is around 7ft away from the wall.

 

Scratch that I just tried to simulate this from my hall's 55" (which is at 6.5ft distance). 48" won't do, if anything I should be aiming for a 65 :roflroll:

VS isn’t budging and final price they did was 1.19k with INSTANT cashback (I dont know how but they said it will be instant) + added the 3 years warranty!

 

Im thinking to go for it! 

 

Update: Going to go and book this on Saturday after Holi

oh I don’t think I can wait till Dussehra. 1.20 lakh on Amazon including cash back seems like a decent offer.

 

Do you know if there’s a difference between the models C1XTZ and C1PTZ

Yup didn’t find much info about difference between c1 XTZ and c1 PTZ.

 

PTZ looks like the international model and XTZ could be Indian specific one.
 

Does any c1 owner here have the XTZ - any issues with it? (This is what I’ll be purchasing from Vijay sales)

So I have finally purchased the LG C1 55 inch from Reliance Digital in Marathalli for ₹117817.

 

They've quoted me 1.24L plus 10k cashback using ICICI Credit or Debit card no cost EMI. They said I will get a stabiliser free with the TV. I took a screenshot of that and then they tried with my ICICI Debit card (as I ended up getting rejected from ICICI for their cheapest CC while I earn enough for a more premium card).

 

Didn't work. I got my card as a salary account card from my previous company and it was not eligible.

 

Then they quoted me a final amount of 1.20L (but no more free stabiliser) and using my AmazonPay ICICI CC I got a instant cashback of ₹2500.

So I ended up paying ₹117817 for the TV with 3 years warranty. If I had a CC I could've gotten it for ₹1.10L but it's fine I guess.

 

Delivery tomorrow, installation the day after. I've specifically asked them to call the LG guys and confirm that the table top stand is in stock, as I've seen reviews online where the LG people are saying that is not in stock and only provided wall mount stand. I prefer the table top stand.

I believe I'm getting that XTZ too, that's what Reliance has on their online store.
I think someone mentioned previously that PTZ means it has white back and XTZ means it has black back.

Congrats!!!!! Also oof that hurts! I have an ICICI CC and I'm also getting this 10k cashback but from 129K. So going to cost 119k, so your 117k is still a good deal :)

 

I don't want to book now because HOLI and chaos everywhere and I'm scared kuch anhoni na hojaye :rofl:

 

> I've specifically asked them to call the LG guys and confirm that the table top stand is in stock

Is it an either -or- situation here? That pick the wall mount or the table top? Should I get this confirmed by VS if they give both in the box?

 

Also any way to confirm the TV is brand new and not used (as I'll be getting the delivery directly from their warehouse)?
