Hi there.

So I've decided to get a new TV and I'm looking at various models but I can't really decide which one to get.
I'm wanting a 4K UHD 3D TV, mainly to watch blu-rays, but also play games on (not fussed about Netflix, so I'm unsure how useful the HEVC decoding is beyond that).

I'm looking to spend between £1100-£1300, I know this limits the amount available, but I'm on a budget of that.

Some examples I've seen are:
- Sony Bravia KD55X8505 (this is the one I've got at the top of the list)
- Panasonic TX-55AX630B (read about bad input lag on games)
- LG 55UB850V (haven't read too much about this one yet)

Any information/recommendation anybody has would be great.

Appreciate it :)

EDIT:
To kinda add something to it; I'd like to know peoples opinions on getting a 4K TV as oppose to a bigger TV than what I already had. My thought process was that with me actually upgrading, I'd want something that's an actual upgrade and not just bigger. Really wouldn't mind having other point of views to consider. (I had a 51" 3D Sammy)

defo the Sony... one of the best TV's I've seen around that is a decent price. and take the LG off that list, it may seem like a good TV, watching anything with fast movement is disgraceful. and finally the Panasonic, not too sure about it, but honestly, u will only know what I mean if u were to see the TVs in person.

What 4k content will you be watching?

I guess it'll be movies more than anything. More than likely upscaled than Native 4K.

I think buying a 4K telly now, when you aren't actually going to be watching any 4K content for a while, only to find that you won't be able to play much 4K content due to the TV not been able to do HEVC is a bit silly. I would just spend half the money on a 1080p tv now.

Yeah, but surely anything downloaded at 4K can be played? (I'm not entirely completely savvy on all of this, hence the ask for help).

I've had a 1080p, and sold that, hence upgrading.

This article gives some of the reasons why I'm holding off at the moment. I think 4k is inevitable, but I feel like it is still in transition, the content is still pretty limited and the TVs themselves aren't yet all fully compliant with the new formats eg HDMI 2.0.

I'm holding off for a bit with what I've got for the moment. If you need a TV, finding a high quality 1080p set isn't probably too hard, but then again 4K TVs aren't *that* much more expensive so maybe it is still worth it, as long as you are aware you might need to change again later.

I'm waiting for a 4K OLED because the black levels are just amazing and that has a big influence on the viewing experience, might be waiting a while though!

See, that's where I'm at. I mean looking quickly I saw a 60" for £120 cheaper, but here's my gripe. The Samsung TV I had was doing it's job, 51", never had a problem, so when I upgrade; am I really going to pay the extra however much just for the 9" difference? It's annoying me because I know it's a completely viable option, but the whole 'upgrade' thing, makes me think that I should actually get something that is an upgrade (and not the same, but bigger).

That was exactly what I needed. Thank you very much, good sir. That's a load off my mind, it was driving me mental!
