Got the 55C8 a few months back from Buydig for $1499 on a call in deal I saw on slickdeals. Buydig is an authorized LG dealer so I'd keep a lookout for something like that.
As far as the B8 vs C8 vs E8, they all have the same panel, but the imaging processor on the C8 and E8 are supposedly better. The E8 and C8 are supposed to be identical, apart from the aesthetics and speakers.
I've had my B7A 55" since September 2017. Business news on 6-8 hours/day while I'm working at home, so even with scrolling along the bottom of the screen, there's no sign of burn-in whatsoever. The TV has a built-in features like pixel refresher and screen shift to prevent burn-in.What about the burn in protection. Wasn't that a major selling point for the C8 over the B8 or is it just bullocks?
Nope, they all have same panel and run same firmware/OS.
Yep I read all that before I got either set .. first I got a deal on a B8, then impulse bought a C8 since I assumed it would be better in some obvious way. Ran them side by side for a week in mirrored mode and just could not tell a difference among variety of content, menu and app performance were also practically identical. I'll keep C8 now that I've got it, but if I had to start over I'd buy a B8 and be done.Almost - while they are pretty much the same, they've tweaked a few things on the C8. It has a slimmer picture bezel/border, the stand is wider and a bit more robust, the gradient performance and gray uniformity has been improved, and they've added voice control support. The newer Alpha 9 processor in the C8 also makes the smart apps load and respond a bit snappier than the Alpha 7 used in the B8. But for the most part, these are pretty minor improvements.

Dang it. How bad is the input lag for the C8? I paid 1500 or so euros for mine and love it. But I do want to game on it
