Posted 4th May
Looking for a brand new 50. Inch for less than 350.the stand needs to be in the middle.from what I've read LG seems a decent make and best places for warranty are John Lewis and richer sounds.I'm baffled by all the jargon.it's been 9 years since last bought a tv.just want something with a decent picture and viewing angles.any ideas?

LG 7400,7450 & hisense 7500 are your best buys
LG are good but they specialise in the premium end. As mentioned above Hisense are probably the best of the budget brand & the 7500 is particularly good value
See here, its only 49 but whats an extra inch between friends ( roll the jokes) i have it and cant fault it
Richer sounds have the 49" LG 7400 and a 50" Hisense both £349 with 6 year warranty - richersounds.com/tv-…365 on that page too is a Panasonic at £318 . They even have a 55" Hisense at £329 - richersounds.com/tv-…tml
I have 65" version of the LG UM7400 and know that is a good set.
The LG UM7400 has good viewing angles as it has an IPS display but be aware as it isn't true 4K due to RGBW subpixel layout so 4k content wont look as good.

The Samsung RU7400 and Hisense B7500 use VA panels so wont have as good viewing angles but with have higher detail in 4K content.

Is that just for the 49" LG use RGBW ? as I can't find anything on the specs about this. Where are you getting the information from. As I said I have the 65" UM7400 and I can't find anything about the panel having RGBW subpixel layout. The picture looks really good to me and I did check out Samsung ,etc., against it in John Lewis and Curry's and it was as good if not better IMO.

Based on Information here - expertreviews.co.uk/lg/…iew

Vincent tested the 49 inch version so it's certainly possible that the 65 inch doesn't have the same sub pixel layout.

The OP was looking for a 50 inch TV which is why I mentioned it.

A bit of a grey area this RGB vs RGBW business. The LG TV's mentioned are all described as' 4K certified ' see JL , AO , etc. for examples. Not that many articles about this but did find one that said Manufactures don't all declare which models have this type of panel and even Samsung use them on some of their TV's. Most reviews don't even mention RGBW so is it that big a deal ? I can 't test these things with lab type equipment as tech site reviewers do and all I can say is to my eyes the picture on my 65" LG UM7400 looks pretty impressive . Still don't know if it's got an RGB or RGBW panel though.

Any reviewer worth their salt would tell you if the panel is RGBW, certainly places like rtings or people like Vincent will.

I don't think any Samsung 2019 TVs use RGBW and most of LGs don't with the exception of their budget TVs.
Bright room or side view this is the tv, not a bedroom TV.
