    Depends on perspective. Having more powerful output in a slimmer and lighter frame is a massive improvement. Its 14Kg less! Plus it is absoloutly gorgous to look at. The C1 is good, but if you view this next to it you see the difference. Plus I just got my £200 cash back in the post, so its 'only' £1600 :lol:

    Ah yes, that all important headline feature of a TV, the weight. LG is truly pushing the envelope in terms of screen technology.

    Confirmation bias is truly a powerful drug :lol:

    I'm pretty sure the 14kg difference will make some carbon footprint focussed people happy because it means ... something to them. I'm not hanging the TV on a wall (I don't mind cables behind a TV rack and I don't like cables down a wall), mainly because I am one of those weird people without a soundbar, using good stereo speakers with an amp. That means I didn't even save money because I could get away with a cheaper wallmount.

    I also saw the C2 is thinner, and let me paraphrase Vincent from HDTVTest here: this is very important for those people who look at their telly a lot from the sides.

    I haven't been bothered about a TVs weight since trying to dislocate my entire skeleton hulking my Sony Triniton.

    Everything else since then has been like lifting a feather.

    As the recent owner of a 32" Trinitron CRT TV.... Yes, I agree, modern tellies are a piece of piss to move!

    Although it still needs two of us to move the 65" TV we bought earlier this year since it's just too unwieldy and fragile to move on my own.

    If you have it on an extendable arm being lighter helps.

    Also on the thinner side, the C2 is actually a great improvement, the stand is a good few inches less deep, it's a ridiculous stand on the older ones, spose its not all bad the PS5 can live behind the TV as that is the size of gap to wall the stand leaves :D but really for wall mounting the G2 is the one you want.

    I mean I wish I'd kept it now obviously but at the time those things needed their own postcode and we didn't have the space to store it.

    It wasn't really all that long ago that we had a CRT as a "full time" TV. We first moved in together in 2008 and a friend donated a 22" (I think) CRT; I'd mod-chipped my OG Xbox and we were using that as an HTPC. We had that CRT for about three years before I finally got a high-def LCD... (That LCD, the Samsung LE40C580, lasted us a decade and it's still in use now at my mother's house)

    Sort of a similar thing tbh except we're still rocking our full HD Samsung :rock:

    It's still a great TV, I keep meaning to upgrade but, well, I've just not got around to it.

    Edit: I think it'll be a 4k TV when they finally release a ps5 slim. Then it'll be trawling around looking for good 1080p upscaling TVs as I can't abide fuzziness

    Speaking as someone who took a 28" Panasonic Quintrix CRT up two awkward double-dogleg flights of stairs... it's not unimportant.

    Paying someone to take the bugger down when I move, I ain't daft!

    I understand the benefits, they just don't apply to me at all. But marketing is a wonderful tool to get people to crave things because they offer benefits over something else these people neither have nor need. ;)

    Because I have quite the death wish, a welder! Draper Storm Force® gasless MIG welder
    [​IMG]
    And because I'd like to have 2 free hands and keep my eye balls, a new mask
    [​IMG]

    Hell yeh lightning and skulls! :rock:

    And an apron

    Debating if a steel welding table is really required. Alternatively it's a chunk of breakfast bar/worktop or the old workmate

    I'm no expert mate but I think you'll need more than just an apron.

    That all depends on what you're welding.
    Are they large enough to get a decent earth clamp on, are you going to be welding long enough (what's the duty cycle of you welder) that may allow heat to damage the surface you're welding on and does what you're welding need to be true and or fixturing in place?

    Answer them and you have your answer, for a hobbyist it might not be worth it

    Sadly, that was my first disgusting thought too.

    Having taken "custardy" of them, I now face the double-dipped challenge of keeping both myself and the kids out of arm's reach for as long as can be considered a reasonable ownership:ingestion time ratio. I may need to print a ration book. But then they do take up a lot of fridge space and if we were to need that space for important things like lettuce, they'd surely melt quickly in this heat...:worried:

    You may take me on a test run to the shop to buy lettuce, in that case. Can I do the gears?

    It's not anything thick, ~1mm steel sheet an 1-2mm thick 20mm box. That won't require that many amps so will have a fairly decent duty cycle, about 60%. Does need to be true though.
