Yeah she told me she preferred a couple of extra inches and really noticed the difference.
At this price, surely it's hisense or Samsung all the way? E.g: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hisense-50a6200-4k-hdr-tv-379-richer-sounds-3090887 Sure, it's 5 inches less, but only the wife will notice!
I think if you’re spending this much, you should get a reputable brand. Not saying that this is a bad TV as I never have tried it but Black Friday is not far away so could wait till then for a branded TV at this price.
What is the model number ? Any store photo?
