I have seen quite a bit of old stock in auction houses, but aside from that I'm not sure. There is an extremely short window just prior to the new season where TVs are flogged for rock bottom prices, so maybe they're just all sold during clearance sales (I was keeping an eye on John Lewis this year and their LG 2016 OLED went in about 5 minutes).
Went over my original budget and plumped for the Sony KD49 XE9005B. It's gotten a lot of praise including that video posted last page. Came with a free Sony 2.1 soundbar which also reviewed pretty well. I then upgraded to PS4 pro with the currys Fifa + crash bandicoot £299 deal.
All in close to £1500 not quite what I was planning and more than the wife was happy with...
A few setup issues aside, at the moment I'm enjoying it. Things seem to work on it, there's a little bit of Planet Earth II in HLG as a taster on the iPlayer app which is absolutely stunning, got some 4K HDR discs to check out over the weekend.
One issue is at the moment the set doesn't seem to want to update its firmware, I can do it via a USB stick, but for some reason the set itself is saying its on the latest software version when it definitely isn't.
