Hi,
Amazon have kindly agreed to refund my 4 year old LG 50LA620V as it has some backlights issues and now looking for a replacement.

Not much of a budget so looking at £550-600 and in an ideal world would like 55" and as we use Plex, Netflix and Amazon needs to be smart.

Any advice would be great. Thanks.

Youll get a better tv non smart features and then use something like an android box for your smart features

A bit above your budget but this was posted recently and looks excellent value Your text here

Might be worth having a look at Hisense sets. Not got one myself but if you research specific models you may find one that suits your needs and well within your budget. There was a deal posted here from Argos for a 50" for around £360 a month or two ago, for instance. It had good reviews. It was 4K and smart. If you are plugging in devices like an Amazon Firestick or a Chromecast then the TV doesn't actually have to be smart, these devices make your TV 'smart' in a sense.

Thanks for the replies.

Happy to look at Hisense, only thing that puts me off is lack of apps and I can't see where they list what is available. Would prefer to avoid having another device to have to be connected all the time as have a Now TV smart box (we use as a freeview box as easy to go to and from Now TV) but as this doesn't have Netflix and Plex need to have those inbuilt ideally.

Not true, pretty much all TV's other than crap ones that get sold for pennies have smat features nowadays.

Problem is that for your budget you aren't going to get better than the Hisense h55m7000. Anything else at that price and you're going to start sacrificing picture quality for the sake of a couple of apps that can be added by using one of the £30 sticks that plugin to the USB port like Fire TV Stick, Roku Stick etc.

Thanks, is there much of a difference between the M3300 and the M7000 do you know?

The m3300 is 2 models back and the picture quality is quite a bit better on the m7000. Also while the m3300 says it supports HDR it only does in the sense that it will allow you to plug in a HDR source and play it but the HDR won't actually do anything, even the m7000 only has partial HDR support where the colours will be better with it.

For £600 the m7000 is a very good TV. It does have the likes of Netflix, Amazon and Plex built in btw.

Perfect thanks. Now just need to decide to buy straight away or hold out for a deal that eventually comes along...can't leave it long as need to send my old one back and can't not have a TV in the lounge.

Edit - actually can't get now as not near that price, have to hold out for a deal I think.

Ah no worries, I think I read your OP wrong. I thought you already had the likes of an amazon stick. My bad.

I'm currently waiting on a deal coming along for the 3300 to use as a TV for mainly gaming, the wife is fed up of me using our main TV. For £360 for a 50" I don't think I'll find similar any cheaper anyway, just hope it comes back to that price again soon. Even if the quality isn't the best I wouldn't really complain. My main TV is an LG and was four times as much so can't really expect the same. The 7000 would be good too but probably not worth the extra money for occasional gaming for me but if the right deal comes along you never know. Hope you find something that suits your needs.
