Bit late seeing this.
I got B8 last month £960 saved £234 on listed prices.
Got RS to match Costco’s price.

Out the box I was disappointed, this was to replace a Panny VT plasma that had awesome picture quality.

Spent some time on AV forums & got pointed to a setup thread, oh my what a difference 15 mins changing settings made!

Now very happy & plus side this thing is cheap to run unlike the energy hungry plasma.
I picked up a 65 C8 last week and even out the box I thought it was amazing (although I was coming from HD LCD).
Need to spend some time acquiring 4K content and tinker with the settings but it’s just so amazing.

I'd love a link to fine tune my sony bravia's just to see if it makes any difference.

I bought a 65" Bravia just after Xmas, i have messed about with the setting, but being honest, the HD and 4k looks spot on even on standard settings.

@ian 182 just google your tv model and setting, their will be youtube video's on how to fine tune it, i just can't be a*sed changing the picture settings all the time.

That did not read correct, I used all the settings mentioned & just tweaked panel brightness to suit my room conditions

Maybe bit off topic but,do any of you have problems using Netflix with your Sony Bravia Tv's?.using it with the button on the remote?.
Mine has started playing up by not loading but when i use netflix using sky q its all fine,only benefit with using it with the tv is having some films etc in 4K.

Couple of big TV's on HUKD today, not OLED but still a lot of TV for the money

Just purchased the 55 inch LG C9, very happy with it so guess that’s a +2.
 
I wouldn't touch anything that isn't OLED, perfect blacks are a must. I've got a 65 C8 that I got on release. My only dislikes are issues with lip sync when using hdmi arc. It can also be a bit pedantic with my sky q box and HDCP. Hopefully these issues were fixed on the 9 series. True motion is always turned off as I find it can pixelate around moving objects.

Lip sync on modern TV’s seems to be absolutely horrific, especially if you use sound bars etc.

Mine went s**t after I turned off the Tru-motion (or whatever it’s called) which was blurring every time I watched football (proper) and football (hand egg).

So, I either have shitty trails or crap lip sync, or f**k about with setting every time.

Lip sync was still an issue but changed some of the settings (turned off the sound modes) and it is perfect now. Sky Q is perfectly aligned now. The blacks are seriously black! Costco is the best price if you’re a member.

I've never found truemotion to work well on any tv I've owned, I'm yet to try a Sony, if the reviews are anything to go by they seem to do a better job with it.

I've reverted to using the optical connections from sky and my tv to the amplifier, no lip sync issues at all but I've lost out on the high definition audio capabilities.

I still think my panny VT had better blacks than my LG OLED.
Over on AV forums are some setup tips for the Lg OLED, made a huge difference to mine compared to out the box viewing.
