Ah yes of course, understood.... Samsung it is then! Thanks. Just as well really as JL just refused my price match request to RGB Direct w/ SPORTS100
The Panasonic has a non-removable power cable. The Samsung is just a figure of 8 lead so for £6 you can get a 3 or 5 meter one from Amazon. It was a deal breaker for me as to wall mount i needed at least a 3m cable run which would mean having to splice into the Panasonic one which would invalidate the warranty. Got the Samsung setup on the wall now and really impressed with it.
@zetecrob thanks for this. Am in the same boat looking for a 40" to wall mount. Can I just double check, which are you saying had the non-removable power cable - this or the Samsung? (And why is that a deal breaker?) Cheers
My main TV is an LG OLED 4K set from 2016. Got to say it's difficult to see how it can be improved much... defo the way to go is OLED or Micro LED as both utilise lighting at pixel level. I was in the laptops direct showroom last week and saw the electriq branded 55 inch OLED (LG Panel) for £800. Design and screen were stunning. Much better than you may think... The manager pointed out Electriq is the companies own brand... although very tempting, another 55 inch TV would have been a little to big for the room.
I am amazed at the prices of 55" tv's these days, i remember buying my 40" for £699.00 and selling it for £150 a few years later. Then paying £299 for a 48" 4k tv. Now waiting for the oled to drop dramatically in price as others have,, or maybe even wait for the new Samsung micro led screen with no back-light to arrive next year and maybe wait for them to become reasonably priced.So maybe 3 years until i get a new tv.
