    Wow, nice price.

    If anyone is thinking about buying this and using it for gaming, just be aware that the 2019 models are bringing significant improvements so make sure that either you don't care or don't want to pay the premium for them.

    Otherwise, good price on an awesome TV.

    Think I'm going to wait the extra year. Variable 120Hz from all sources is a must.

    Can you name the improvements compared to this E8 series in the OP?

    There are a couple of threads on here that go into more detail, but the high points are 120Hz @ 4K capability (the current ones can only do 120Hz @ 1080p), variable refresh rate, even less input lag than the current models, and a possible new size between 40"-49".

    Anyone holding out for MicroLED is in for a long wait. OLED is finally affordable for many/most and will provide the best picture quality you've ever seen.
