55 inch tv

Found 2nd Jan
Hi all. I am after upgrading to a 55 inch tv from my 42 inch lg. my budget is about 1000-1200. I don't need 3D.

I have a Xbox one s, pc and virgin. Amongst other stuff plugged into hdmi splitter.

What's the best tv quality build wise at the moment to buy. I game on it, watch footie etc. I live in Manchester so we have all the big shops near us like jl, richer sounds and Costco.

All the "January sales TVs" are confusing

Thanks in advance

Is a 65" to big? My friend just got this one and it's awesome

I would consider a larger one but I live in a terraced house so that's why I fancied 55 as the sweet spot. I have found this tv which I know is higher than my original budget but if I'm investing so much money in a tv I want quality and warranty. I just said 1200 so I don't keep going up and up haha

That's going to blow all the LED TV's out the water, I think that's the one my friend bought last year but paid £2300.
I'm wanting a 65" but OLED is mental money that price so I'm just sticking with LED. My current TV is a 55" and wanted to get bigger and jump to 4k. Last night I was told if your getting 4K make sure its a 10bit screen, not 100% what that all means but its supposed to be the best to get.
There's so much choice when it comes to tele's you just can't keep up.
I'd only buy from RicherSounds or John Lewis, Currys are a waste of time.

if i was buying a Samsung i would at least buy a 7 series

Is that them Quantom dot ones? My mates been banging on about them

yes i think so, actually it is the 8 series i would say to try get at least for that budget.
quite a step up in quality.
i am undecided what to buy this year as there seems to be so much competition atm

Samsung KS7000 or KS8000 are the best options in your price range and are certainly the only ones that are UHD Premium certified i think Richer sounds and John Lewis are doing a decent deal on the KS8000 right now.

LG's EG910V is probably the best option in terms of normal picture quality (particularly for non-HD channels) but it doesn't have any HDR support.

If you do want HDR then Sony's XD93 or Samsung's KS7000/7500/8000 are the ones to look at for ~£1200, If you stretch the budget the LG's B6V and Panasonic's DX902 are very good.

I have read on many forums that the Samsung suffers motion blur? What about the Sony XD8577 which JL reviews rate higher?

The XD8 models are in a completely different league in terms of HDR support, it's more an equivalent to the KU6400. The XD93 is £1250 so that's the one to be looking at in the Sony range if you're spending around £1200.

All LCDs suffer from motion blur to different extents.
