Size issue = you cannot fit it in .. or you think it will be too big?

Personally I go as big as I can now as you will probably want bigger once you get used to it (if you can fit it in).
If you need to downsize, dont drop all the way to 50.

Have you considered buying a top end used TV?
Looking at too many reviews will definitely confuse you.

I would stick to rtings and amazon reviews.

At that price range I might be tempted to look at ex display products.

Yes I cant fit it in, about 4" to big :/

Haven't thought of second hand would rather have warranty

49" at the min max I can fit is 60" if there is such a thing.

ouch... do NOT go ex-display. Why buy a TV that has been left on dynamic settings 24/7 showing the same reel over and over. Just No. That is the worst thing you can do for a TV.

The bezel on each tv will be different. What is the maximum width of the space ? (Or height if that is the issue).

I know a few people who have bought ex displays and they were absolutely fine. I do agree with you though on why one shouldn’t , but I was looking at the price point and like I said I might be tempted. I mean if you are given a guarantee by a reputed seller you might take the punt

Personally I always go 5 year warranty if buying new, but buying used is a great bet if cheap enough. Ex-display will no doubt be 12 months warranty then you are on a 1 year old TV that has actually done 3 years worth of stuff on it.

True. But the ones my acquaintances bought is lasting about 3 years now. I believe it was from John Lewis and the other person bought was from Richer Sounds. They both fee they bagged a bargain given the huge discount
Op, I'm just making sure you are measuring diagonally aren't you?

I would recommend the RU8000 in 55". Crampton and Moore just took a few more in stock at £599. Bit more expensive than it was elsewhere before it sold out but still within your budget.

It is great for gaming. 120Hz panel and low input lag.

Some of the suggestions above whilst 'OK', can't compete on input lag or with that 120Hz panel.

Did you say what you wanted the TV for ? 55 may cause you to want to change later. How far away from the TV are you?

Yes, will be for gaming and movies
Best gaming preferred

About 13 feet away from tv

I wont be able to fit a tv, more than 140.5 wide so unless a 60in comes out 55 will be my limit.

Panasonic do a few 58" TVs - just google and look at reviews.
