Just looked at a Youtube video quality looks brilliant. Thing is with the bigger brands Sony and Samsung they seem to last a lot longer.
Good tv, I have installed kodi and iptv, all work great. One point to make is very occasionally I get picture stutter even on free view and it is a known issue

Second that sentiment. Not a slave to brands, but when it comes to big ticket electronics it does reward in the long term to pay the premium. I have a 20 year old box Sony on top of fridge in kitchen (just refuses to die); The 8 year old 32" sony has been moved into bedroom (never a single issue); 2 year old 55" sony in sitting room (all sweet to date)
Would make me feel alot better however if those sh*ts would stop slaughtering dolphins though
I have the 65inch model great TV
kodi runs like a dream
blacks are colours are excellent
great price this for the 55inch heat

should be mad!
Won’t go for 8 series in that size. At least 9 series if 49 or bigger.
IPTV is an app on a smart TV no need to install
Is there a monitor of similar quality without all the smart TV crap? What use is that when many just stream off devices?
Good TV for the money. Paid £629 from Amazon last June.

Only weaknesses for a non-demanding user are backlight bloom in very dark scenes washing out the screen and a little lag when watching 4k content (volume change on screen might only be indicated 5-10 seconds after pressing the remote button).

Saves the hassle of multiple remotes, boxes and cables if you're happy enough with what the TV already provides. Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and the iPlayer apps, coupled with FreeView, are all that I need, and are included on the home screen of the TV. BTSport I cast from my phone direct to the TV using the app. No clutter - just a wall mounted TV with cables channeled into the wall and no set top boxes etc visible.
£989

If this is a 100hz panel then it might be worth a look. I CBA to google it.
Err no...it'll have more judder than a parkinsons patient coming off crystal meth

60Hz. Only time I've seen an issue with motion blur is watching football and one team hoofs it route one and the ball in the air isn't so smooth on-screen, but it's rare and something I can overlook for a set I'm otherwise very happy with.

What?


400hz motion flow...good luck watching sports
400mhz Motion flow or motion slow?. Lol. Not sure if that is good or not. Just liked the sound of it . It rhymed.
Makes me sad that the 49 inch is only 60 squid cheaper
Mrs smashed ours last night in a temper I'm so annoyed
