Price looks good but still using samsung


Never mind you will make it one day:p
Here's a funny thing (it might be common knowledge to be fair)- you remember in the early 90's Argos used to sell cheapo TV's and video recorders by Goldstar? That's LG. Amazing what a re-brand can do!

Are sony better than LG and Samsung?


Much of a muchness really.
Panasonic were in that group once, and then they decided to rebadge cheapie Turkey made TVs as Panasonic and got a LOT of bad PR from which they still havent recovered Hisense have probably passed them now
I'll have to add, mind that my nephew's Panasonic 50" is excellent (he checked before buying and apparently NOT a Vestel) they WERE top of the tree once for quality which has gone down dramatically. Ive bought a couple Panasonic items and theyve been poor (neither made in Japan)

Sony 90 series (e.g. KD55XE9005BU) are apparently the best non oled TVs according to people who know far too much about TVs.

I personally reckon Sony have been the overall best TV brand for decades.

I'd Bing it if you want to know the specifics of the technology, but its headline feature is perfect black levels (and so an infinite contrast ratio). If you take a look at a regular LCD TV that's turned off, that's what black looks like on an OLED. This is why people loved plasmas back in the day too, because their black levels were so much deeper than LCDs.

Thanks, you seem to know a lot about it yourself don't seem to see LCD anywhere these days. Granddad has a Panasonic even tho it's 1080p or 720p looks very clunky and don't like it at all. Suppose as long as they're happy with it

Hardly a rebranding, Lucky Goldstar down to LG! Samsung were cheap TV manufacturers too 30 years ago, means absolutely nothing in 2018.

Aye, I believe so. I just find it quite interesting. They're into all sorts as well, they've a whole chemical and plastics division. A rep came in to me once touting vinyl for kitchen door fabrication.
2017 was the year of Sony. Samsung seriously dropped the ball. We await to see the full 2018 line-up to see if Samsung have learnt a lesson
Torn.. Edge lit.. is it 120 Hz.. obviously not got the blackness of OLED.. sluggish remote response of Sony (but benefits of Android).. WTF??
6/5 yr warranty from JL or RS.. Super/Ultra ULD?? QLD market blah..

Yeah, these megacorps tend to have their fingers in all sorts of pies. Until the past couple of years, Toshiba built nuclear power stations as well as TVs, though they've sold off both divisions now.

Panasonic still make some of the best TVs available, whether it's OLED or not.
Is it tv with HDR. I can't find this information on argosebay but I found it on LG website. I'm confused.

It's a little bit more complicated than that and you know it. The company separated into 2 units, LG Electronics and LG EI in 2002.
Goldstar didn't adopt the LG brand until '94.When LG brought Zenith into the fold in the mid-nineties, that is when they made bigger leaps into modern technology.

Amazing what getting your facts straight can do!

If within warranty period you should have reported it.

1. No it wasn't
2. Even if it was, why didn't you post it as a deal
3. Do you have a time machine we can all borrow to go check and to buy it with if true?

Absolutely. But the Vestel idea caused a LOT of bad rep, casting doubt whether your Panasonic was a Panasonic after all.
Even now.
I was looking round Richer Sounds in Newcastle a few months back, when I heard a bloke ask the feller that worked there "Is this one of the rebadged Vestels made in Turkey ?" when the feller suggested the Panasonic. I didn't catch the answer as I was on my way out at the time.
It's a decision thats not going to be forgotten soon

Well, Toshiba used to have their name put on Turkish made Vestels. The failure rate isn't good apparently. So a huge name in Toshiba showed their name couldn't be trusted for TVs. But the majority of the former TV makers are made by cheapie OEM companies. Names like JVC don't make TVs now - but you can pick up a JVC telly. Maybe a small company will put the JVC name on it and JVC gets a slice of the money paid.
Panasonic went that route too. Briefly. I don't think they're doing it now. Lots of complaints, Panasonics share suffered, as Toshibas did years earlier (apparently the Toshiba TVs are now made by Hisense and getting a decent rep going by reports) Vestels are supposed to be decent, and I suppose it's just a case of if you're unlucky. But it's a bogey man brand at the moment.There is a cheapie BRITISH made TV thats supposed to be decent. The Cello but I haven't read much about them
And a Chinese brand thats getting rave reviews in US - Vizio. Haven't seen much of them over here, and a few different Chinese makes. Which improve all the time.But probably best to aim for the big name makes like LG

Yep, but I remember them saying that about my old Sony Bravia 40" in our front room (Its still excellent thats why my wife wants another Sony) that we bought in 2006 which was nigh on 2 grand. Within months it was half that. Then after a year half that again. Then onto the flatter screens. which are now.....well, you don't need me to tell you.
Theres an LG on Amazon an OLED which was about half its previous price. (Its actually on here somewhere) so it is happening. If it doesn't I'll wait for the best deal at the time I buy. Probably Fenwicks or John Lewis possibly Richer sounds. The best one for warranty

Think he spent too much time reading Wikipaedia. Over complicating a simple premise. LG used to be Goldstar.
It was Goldstar that made the tellies and electronics.
