Found 29th Jul 2017
Hi all, been literally waiting around for months for a good deal 40inch set on here, but it seems the savings always seem to come up for 43 inch plusses.

anyway with the football season starting I'm close yo pulling the trigger on the below at the 500 price mark.

Any better suggestions?

anything around the £500 mark isn't going to be HDR, it might say it is, you need to spend £1k for anything close to proper HDR. Plus a £500 4K TV is going to be 60hz so football will look awful, again you need to spend a grand or get a decent 1080p for £500

When you say awful, do you really mean awful? Or is this from a techie point of view?

well for starters it won't be HDR in any sense, it will just accept an HDR signal and make a hash of it as the backlight won't be bright enough or have local dimming.

you will see the ball ghost across the screen and panning shots will stutter at 60hz

I'm not sure about the motion but you can definitely forget HDR at that size and budget. You have to go up to 49" and £1000+ for a decent HDR TV and 55" and £1500+ for a good one. Many TVs at this price just treat HDR as vivid mode it's better turned off entirely.

40" and 43" are generally considered to be equivalents with models typically offering one size or another, it's very rare to see both sizes available. If 43" isn't an option you're going to cut down your choices substantially.
