    OLED65E8PUA

    Anyone have any negative comments about the LG OLED65E8PUA TV?

    This TV is in United Airline's Mileage Plus Rewards Catalog.

    My Panasonic Plasma TV is still going strong, but this may be too good to pass up the opportunity to join the 21st century.

    Are you a frequent flyer and have a boat-load of rewards points?

    Man, how many miles would you have to fly to earn a 65" OLED?

    Hi Tracy,

    I replied to your comment, with quotes, but I can find it. So here it comes again as a separate reply to: OLED65E8PUA.

    It took 480K actual flight miles for the TV. Using miles for anything but tickets is a poor use of miles. However, I have had the points for 20 years in July, so I'm going to use them today. July marks 20 years of retirement, where has all the time gone.

    What's the next best UHD player after the UDP-203?

    480K miles? Talk about a frequent flyer.

    As for the next Blu-ray player to buy, that's a tough one and I truly have no clue which player I would buy. Other than the Oppo, the other first-generation UHD Blu-ray players had issues of one type or other. From what I have read, many of those were able to be corrected by firmware updates.

    However, I don't have a UHD display and have been loving my BDP-103. I hope it has a very long life.

    I bet David has a suggestion.

    I accumulated 950,000 flight miles in 15 years. I have no desire to fly anywhere, but I do miss the business dinners. Food always tastes better when you don't pay for it.
    I have an BDP-83 & BDP-93 that are still giving perfect service. The 83 only gets used when I exercise which isn't much anymore. The 93 drives the Panasonic Plasma everyday. I had planned to buy the next generation of Oppo, but that didn't workout.

    Richard,

    The Panasonic players are very good. I'd wait for the UB820, which is supposed to be released soon (if not already).

    The player that I had before my Oppo was a Panasonic too. It's still a great player but really slow by today's standards.

    Hi David,

    FYI
    Couldn't find the UB820 anywhere, even on Panasonic's website.
    I'll keep a lookout for its release.
