Got the C1 48 inch at 87.3k and with emi amount it works out to 88.1k :)

Installation tomorrow.

 

Anyone here using any other vesa mount for your OLED? Please let me know . Or should I opt for whatever wall mount LG is offering. Because I want it to protrude a bit ahead and  rotate easily so that I have easy access to the back ports

Update on the LG c1 48 payment

Though it was finally billed 88.1k with 6 months emi . . I requested hdfc for preclosure of the emi for the tv. They told me vendor side the payment was further reduced to Rs 84.9 . So I was told to pay 84.9k  :bigyellowgrin:

The opportunity cost of the 85k might be worth more though. If you pay by EMI it's just 500 rupees per month extra. Stock market has just gone down, good time to invest in shares . But I guess this is a debate for another thread.

Does it vary with 6 months payment? Because I was billed 88.1 during April and now 85. Any further margin beyond 88k is a win for me :P

but anyways i got reimbursed by my company for buying this :fear:

Hey , by any chance did you enquire about the cost of the 55 inch ? 

 

I called up a local LG store here in Pune and I asked them about the price of the 55 C1, he first quoted about 1.23 L including all cash backs n all. I told him I'm not looking to buy a tv now , unless it's an offer I can't refuse. Then he asked me what's the budget , I told him between 1 and 1.10 L  and he.s like " ho Jaye ga sir , aap store ko aa jao pehle " 

 


wait till diwali if you can

As per my understanding,  here.s how it works , whenever you buy it on 0% EMI , the upfront cost is discounted further in the backend , I'm not sure who pays this , the retailer or the bank.

So basically,  now in their system , you have taken a loan of 85k @ 12% interest rates or something ,  and after 6 months your total outgoing inclusive of Interest will be 88k. So basically you are trying to shortclose that loan 6 months in advance , that's why it's only 85k for you now. 

 

My argument was that you.re better off paying 6 instalments of 14684/- rather than pay off 85k now.

Arey , I'm not telling him not to buy a tv and invest the money. I'm saying,  don't prepay , and invest the money instead.

Diwali is still so far away , and I wonder how much of a cost difference can it be then. Minimum of Rs.1 lakh ? Wondering if the wait is worth it for an additional 10k. ( considering that I've been wanting to buy an OLED since the C9 came out :fear1:

Ya and Diwali is 5 months away, and we re assuming it's gonna be 10k cheaper than this, it's not a guarantee. So the question is , is the 5 months with an OLED worth 10k ?? :censored:

Oh nice! Thanks for the detailed explanation. I paid now itself cos who knows when I’ll go broke :P

 

If you can wait , get the c2 during diwali. But c1 prices will more or less be the same rate as how much I bought for. Cos Croma during diwali 2021 settled for 89k for the 48inch and now too for the same cost.

 

Not sure if a 55 inch will be 1 lakh during diwali. Try going to some trustworthy shops and see if they offer for 1 lakh

Reading this thread, it seems that the local retailers (including croma, vijay sales, official dealers etc.), often agree for huge discounts over and above the shown discounts? Damn. When I bought the C9 in 2019, I agreed for 1.35L with a soundbar worth 20k free. It was 1.39 online. If I knew this I would've haggled for far more :(

 

So whats the best strategy for haggling? I am in Pune and aiming for a Sony or Samsung QD-OLED, when and if it launches in India.

Ideal pick up at 60-70K pricing in India 

 

 

It's retailing at 1400pounds and dollahs bro 

How will you get it for 60-70k :P

 

but what amazes me is people use this and a 48 inch C1 as a monitor. How can you so close to such a huge screen.

bc you want burn in for eyes too is it :/

:rofl: I paid probably less for a 65

 

and this can never be a day to day monitor due to PC nature, only suitable for those with space constraints and viewing distance....

Me who is using 55 inch C9 as monitor right now :fear1:

 

You get used to it pretty quickly. I dont find it huge at all. Sometimes its actually pretty handy to have 2 apps open side by side on half a screen and work on it. Very helpful.

 

Not to mention gaming is super immersive when the screen takes your whole vision.

I know right. Too pricey for a 42 inch tv.

Damn. Didnt know big screens cause blindness/other issues to eyes. Apart from dryness etc., do they seriously cause major issues?

Actually on the contrary , I feel more eye fatigue when I use my phone for a long time , not as much with my TV. 

I have a 50 inch TV and I sit at about 6 ft distance from it. I think the main issues are with prolonged use without taking breaks and all.
