    LG OLED question 2017 vs 2016 (7p vs 6p)

    Hi guys,

    My brother-in-law is interested in getting an OLED.

    Last year, I told him to get the LG OLED65B6P model but he didn't get it..

    Now, he is more interested in getting and he stated he went to costco and saw OLED65B7P..

    Is there a big difference between the 2017 and 2016 model? Anything different about the 6P and 7P?

    Any thoughts on which to get?

    Costco is selling for $3K the 2017 7P version..

    The 7P is one P better.

    I couldn't tell you the differences, although I'm sure if there are any they would be minute.

    However, the best deals are to be had around Black Friday and Christmas.

    I have 2017's C7P unit. This comes with a Dolby Vision upgrade with I heard is good, but I have yet to see a 4K Blu Ray with it. Guardians, out in two weeks will be my first. Netfix also gives DV and it looks great. The C7P is also going for about 3Gs. I'd get that one at the same price.

    Thanks guys.

    How is the sound for the C model? I know with the B model, you need a soundbar or external speakers since the internal speakers are not good..

    The C lists its speaker compliment as,
    Dolby Atmos 2.2 Ch 40W (20W Woofer)
    Looking at the B model page, it lists the same specs. Maybe they are the same. However, personally, I'd go with the least audio features and let my AVR and external speakers handle the sound.

    Yeah, I think the cheaper of the B or C (whichever during black friday) is best..

    Also, noticed that E comes with soundbar but of course E is more expensive.

    MyTV sounds wonderful with it in the board speakers. However I never ever listen to it that way. It is hooked up to my Marantz and 5. 1 speakers. But for TV speakers these are excellent and I do not think he would buy a sound bar for them. That is, it would not improve the sound all that much.

    There's one model, I forget which, that has an integrated Harmon audio board and speakers. I would imagine it would sound pretty good.
