Hi Guys,

Still looking for New Smart TV. Ideally 55' or 60' to be wall mounted for general TV use, movies and sports in House.

Around a budget of £700-£800.

I seen a few in Tesco and Currys but due to them being lowered on price 2 months ago and 1 month ago and ow back up buts me off and I don't want to jump in.

Any suggestions please would be greatly appreciated??

Hi.

Buying a TV is a bit of a minefield and loads of people with different opinions.

Essentially the larger screen you go the higher spec TV you require as on a larger screen will look worse.

Having 4K (almost standard on tv's now) is only part of what makes up a good picture.

Additionally imo a 60" for £800 and you will most likely see 'motion blur' on sorts and action movies.

Paying for a high spec tv will reduce the motion blur considerably.

It may be you might not even notice the motion blur on a £800 tv.

Bottom line once you've narrowed down your search to a few tv's try them out in store with your own movie etc on each tv and see which you prefer - don't just rely on the feed shown to you in the shop.

As a starting point I'd recommend thus Samsung. ...

It's £1K..... a month ago it was £900.

I'd advise not going for any Samsung tv lower spec than this.

Sony and LG are good too.

Compare in JL with your own action/sports material and decide from there....

Good luck

Think you might need to save a bit longer to get a decent 55" model. Have a look at Which reports online to get unbiased reviews.

Arguably 4K reduces picture quality for non-4K stuff (i.e. almost everything) as the scalers don't seem to be as polished as the Full HD ones, leading to a softer less-detailed look.

Unfortunately there are very few high quality Full HD panels/TVs still being produced so to get something with good picture quality in other respects it may be a necessary trade-off.

Although bear in mind that many movies are filmed at low frame rates and designed to have motion blur.

The ue55KS7000 was £849 at its cheapest and is by far the best at that budget, if you can save another 50 and keep fingers crossed it may drop to that again once all the new models are released.. I'm in the same boat as you with a budget around that and waiting for the right 55", though willing to spend a bit more if the perfect set comes along.

LG 55UH850v - end of search :)
barter the shop down to £800 from £899.. all shops will give you 10% off when you ask, plus you get passive 3d, whilst 3d isn't for everyone, why not get it
60" panels are not premium panels, get 55 or 65 if you must, but never a 60

Agree to stay away from 60"

Bizarre as it sounds but true

Firstly, thanks for your responses and advice.

The samsung ue55KS7000 or LG 55UH850v - both look good, if I could of got them on offers like they have previously been priced at.

However, my step-dad wants 60'. So I'm taking your advice and not jumping in, going to continue to save more and have a bigger budget for 60'. Ideally between £1000-£1300 in around 6 months time would that be suffice?

That's assuming the newer models are out and things are better priced.

However, he currently doesn't have a TV (so we are going to opt for a £300 ish 32-40 inch just to get by in the meantiime and then upgrade the bedroom with it when the 60' comes).

So, looking in Tesco now, (to get points) for this new budget.

Thanks

I like your thinking in saving for a better TV in the future .....

However I think the new model TV's will still be expensive in 6 months time. .... and whilst I understand your Dad needs a tv now to spend £300 now and then whatever your budgets allows in 6 months seems, imo, false economy. ..... it'll be like paying top dollor so soon after spending £300....

Unless you see a bargain now. ..... Try to hold out toll late December'17/very early Jan '18 to get the best prices......

As has been demonstrated here come 2nd week of Jan prices go back up!!

Currently Richer Sounds are doing the Samsung UE60KS7000 for £1,350 with a 6 yr warranty. ...

They also have some LG and Panasonic 58" for £999.....

Maybe pop in and have a demo with your own film?

Just my humble opinion.....

Good luck

Go to John Lewis or Richer Sounds - a 5 year or 6 year warranty (respectively) as standard.
