Thumbs up Sony 2018 OLED A8F Series UHD TVs prices and launch date announced

We'll began shipping 65A8Fs on March 30 followed by the 55" A8F early April. So we're ahead of schedule for Sony's 2018 OLED A8F series.

Here's the launch prices:

- XBR-55A8F $2,798
- XBR-65A8F $3,798

Plus we're sweeting up the deal with our A8F launch promotion of an additional 10% Sony Rewards Credit so our clients would have $280 for the 55" and $380 with the purchase of the 65". The credit can be used towards any Sony accessory, e.g, receiver, Bluetooth headphones, BD player, etc.

Are these essentially LG sets or does Sony make their own? If I were to buy an OLED today, based on previous experiences I would not likely get an LG.

Any thoughts on comparisons between the LG and Sonys?

LG Display owns the pattens to produce the only OLED large screen displays technology, WRGB. We nick name it "color by white". LG purchased the patents from Eastman Kodak. Sony buys OLED panels from LGD, but use the well respected X1 Extreme video processing.

With all this said for 2018 LG Electronics stepped up the game by developing the new a9 processor that delivers excellent up-conversion of FHD and excellent tone mapping of HDR content with excellent color fidelity.

Main to NY is a reasonable travel and I hope you will accept my invitation to participate in our 2018 TV Shootout evaluation event.

Just wanted to share a couple pictures or my local Rotary Club Fundraiser. We had a blast and raised a lot of money for our very worthy causes.
