LG 55EC9300  OLED 580


Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED)TVs are the future of large screen display technology. They produce very vivid colors, deep black blacks and have a very wide viewing angle.  Now LG’s latest (2nd generation) 55-inch OLED HDTV model, the  55EC9300  is now  available with a $500 instant rebate (IR) bringing the price to record low $2999 -making it 57% off the retail price.

We’ve been very impressed with its performance and we’ll have our review up this week.

Last year’s first generation 55-inch OLED HDTV initially sold for $15,000 or over $272 per diagonal inch.. This week’s deal price is under $55 a diagonal inch. By comparison, the  premium over Samsung’s top of the line 55-inch LED LCD HDTV, the UN55H8000 HDTV is now $1000 (it was $1500 last week). Anyone considering this size TV should take a look at it the LG OLED via our link.

There are quite a few other TVs that have been marked down this week, with many UHD 4K models at new lows, thanks to Instant Rebates.  There are also bundles listed from Sony and Samsung (on select models).

Amazon direct is now offering on Samsung’s H7150 line of HDTVs an   8% Amazon Rewards Credit  toward future purchases from Amazon direct (it’s 6% more than their full time rewards program).
