Try here:

Some folks there have bought it before.
Not bad for a HDMI 2.1 equipped TV.
Make sure you check delivery and warranty terms.

Went Audio House sales and I was comparing this and Samsung 82TU8000.

LG 82UN8100PTB $3699 with $200 choice vouchers and Samsung 82TU8000 $3499

Initially wanted to go for LG cos of IPS screen hard panel and refresh of 100hz.... but after watching for a while... realised the color bit unreal and black is just a patch of black..

Thus went for Samsung.

Received $680 audio house credit to off set future purchase...

Re

You buying an antique? 82 inch with 4K is a waste for such a size

Should get the 8K version......future-proof

FYI, now the 12K version is available for camera leow

Sure you can get an 8k TV, if money is no object and all your sources are UHD material..
