I bought a smaller member of the family of that LG one (49SK8100) for the bedroom and I really like it. I don’t like the magic remote (like a wii remote) but if you click the the arrows on the remote it functions as a normal remote would, just wish I could turn off the cursor permanently!What do people think of these three?
Higher the Hz, the better the quality of fast motion e.g sports. But, it isn’t the only thing that deals with that, you’ve got the processor and quality of screen itself.That ones only 50Hz though and the one I posted above is 100Hz. That’s better isn’t it?
I have a horrible feeling i am going to end up getting carried away and just say f*ck it, and get an OLED...lol, especially if they come down to close to a grand.I went to Currys at the weekend to have a look. Decided to wait until the OLED TVs drop to around a grand as they looked fantastic.
They were all £2K plus so out of my budget at the moment really.
I am sure Richer Sounds were doing a 65" OLED for £1600 on Black Friday, i can't see it getting much cheaper than that in the near future.When you can get a 65 inch OLED for a grand Im going all in. £2.5 is a bit steep at the moment (just had to spunk that on a new boiler )
Is that QLED tv? they look really good as well, i have heard OLED can be a bit dark?Make sure you can cope with an oled, they can't be a little dark in a bright room and that you don't encourage any screen burn in depending on how you use it.
I ended up with a Samsung Q9FN - Spanking TV! But a little over your budget!
I switched from a 42 led to a 55 oled last year and it’s been faultless, no burn in, screen brightness has been perfectly fine and the picture quality is second to non.Fancy one myself for the new front room. Around 55” I think. Is oled the way forward these days then?

Permanent burn was all but eradicated long before the demise of plasma tv's. I don't think oled suffers any worse and the brightness levels are getting better all the time.Is OLED similar to Plasma in terms of needing looking after and having lower brightness?
If so, I think OLED and Plasma are best suited to a mancave or a single person's house - otherwise careless partners and unthinking kids end up leaving the Sky selection screen on for minutes/hours at a time, making it burn-in city lol
I just hate having bright white text 'ghosting' on less-well-lit pictures for minutes/hours/days after leaving it up for too long! lolPermanent burn was all but eradicated long before the demise of plasma tv's.

If I was spending around 1k on a TV I'd consider looking at Philips Ambilight as well as Samsung etc.
Thats called progress.Genuinely think you’d have to be mad to spend a lot of money on a TV these days.
I (against better judgement) bought a flagship Sony about 5 years ago. RRP was close to 2k and it was great.
Just spent £400 on one of those Samsung 4K sets that everyone has had on offer over NY and it knocks the Sony out of the park in every category.
Yeah for sure. But I don’t see how you can be “into TVs” like you can be into cars. Not only that but fast cars are more expensive than ever, whereas you can pickup a bigger TV for less than a grand than even existed 5 years ago.Thats called progress.
Think about the car evolution - hot hatches these days having 400+BHP compared to even 5 years ago where 300 was the norm
Thats the new tech adopter premium , and also as mentioned parts are now cheaper.Yeah for sure. But I don’t see how you can be “into TVs” like you can be into cars. Not only that but fast cars are more expensive than ever, whereas you can pickup a bigger TV for less than a grand than even existed 5 years ago.
Just wanted to come back on this because I spent time this weekend at a friend's house, who has the ambilight thing on his TV.If I was spending around 1k on a TV I'd consider looking at Philips Ambilight as well as Samsung etc.
You can alter the brightness and change the reaction timing.Just wanted to come back on this because I spent time this weekend at a friend's house, who has the ambilight thing on his TV.
Man... it's f**king annoying... LOL
Super-bright to the point of being distracting, and on fast-moving TV (like The Grand Tour as they cut between presenters in the tent, between dark studio and bright window view behind them) it is slowwww to react, making it even more distracting.
So, in summary.... I don't like it lol
I know it’s not 65 but the LG OLED55B8 is on Hughes for £1100, been looking at it for myself as time’s come to move to 4K
The LG OLED55B9PLA OLED 4K Ultra HD TV combines a stunningly beautiful cinema screen alongside AI brilliance meaning you get a TV like no other. This TV really will deliver a cinematic experience but in the comfort of your own home,...www.hughes.co.uk
You got a link to the settings? Mines due back sometime next week after having the panel replaced so could do with fine tuning the picture.Spent some time on AV forums & got pointed to a setup thread, oh my what a difference 15 mins changing settings made!
Now very happy & plus side this thing is cheap to run unlike the energy hungry plasma.
