The TV Decision Making Thread

Hey everyone, 

 

I plan to change my TV this year. Currently I use the 43 inch Sony KDL-43W800D model bought in 2016. Works fine but I plan to give it to my parents. I'm not that good at TV model hunting so please do help a brother out. 

 

My usage is mainly the PS5 and OTT. I have a 2.1 channel Sony Soundbar that I use currently, and I plan to continue using this over the TV speakers for the foreseeable future. My constraint is that I would prefer a medium size ie around 50 inches since the room space is small. The TV won't be wall mounted so a good table stand system is better to have.

 

Things I need are 3+ HDMI ports, a good refresh rate for gaming and a 2K or 4K resolution.

 

Things that are good to have but not necessary: Smart features like Android TV, HDR, etc. 

 

Budget is around 1L ish, but I can expand another 20K or so. 

 

Thanks :cheers:

What the heck is the brand Beston that is using LG’s magic remote and WebOS. Is LG sharing software assets with other TV brands? This doesn’t seem like a spinoff.

Samsung are seriously having quality issues , their products might be priced well but so many product quality issues.

Just had a look at https://twitter.com/SamsungIndia/with_replies

And in just last 5 days found at least 10 people reporting failures with the same tv model as mine.

 I had bought a Samsung 43” 4K TV (NU7100) in Aug 2018, it cost me 52k. When I bought LG CX in Mar 2021, I had given it my father. Since October 2021, half the screen has gone completely dark (Backlight has stopped working on left side). It is out of warranty. Just 3 year’s life!! The estimations are 7-8k if only backlight can be changed, else it will be entire panel change which means 25-30k. We all know what will be the solution when they take it to their back office.

 

I always was averse to Samsung products and thought that I should give a fair chance to them. Wham!! Never buying Samsung electronics/appliances again.

 

LG has been always good for me starting with my first ever Android phone, LG Optimus One to ‘the’ original best gaming TV, LG CX OLED.

Does the LG C1 run on its own OS? I'm reading about it and it doesn't seem to be running on Android. Any pros/cons of their system?

 

Also, I'm curious why the C1 is being recommended? Is there nothing better at this price range? :fear1:

Pros - Smooth af, super intuitive and pretty solid app support

Cons - android TV will support more apps and faster updates. Some apps like hotstar take their own sweet time bringing features to webos. 

 

And yes it is the best in that range at that size. Actually, you won't find a better <50 inch tv at any price point.

The picture quality is absolute best, supports all hdmi 2.1 features so perfect for gaming and movies. 

The only con is that it needs a dark room to perform best.

I would recommend to just buy the 55" model.

You will be surprised by seeing how small an OLED seems as compared to another LED/LCD of the same size. 55" seems like a 50".

I think he has a space constraint. Otherwise, always best to get the biggest possible tv. I'm defo getting a 65 inch in an year or two. And 77 inch when I'm super rich or the prices become reasonable.

Yeah, my next TV is definitely gonna be 65". 

Need it to make up for other things :fear1:

LG CX and C1 are identical but I would go for whichever is cheaper by 15k or more, else go for tor newer.

 

Under 1.4L there’s nothing better than LG OLED, evidently the best TV for gaming.

Same happened with me, I could have gone for 65” CX with good offer, but had to settle for 55” due to space constraint.

 

My next target is to get a 77” OLED after I save enough and buy a flat 😭 long shot!!!

When I do get around to buying, I plan to see the dimensions and check if it'll fit in the room. Then the final size will be decided. 

 

Also, I guess I can always get a chromecast or an android TV stick if the LG OS isn't that good.... Obviously the built in android performs quite well but a TV stick shouldn't be that far off in terms of performance.

You don't need it tbh. LG Webos is a usp for most people. Unless you're actually missing an app you need, no need.

I stick with Sony because of the Android interface but they have now started pushing ads (Google). So if that doesn't get fixed in future then I will also switch to LG and just get a fire stick or watch via Ps5/XSX.

Any good Sony recommendations for my requirement?
