Nope.

x900e is the first Sony TV I got. Been years.

Followed by E series OLED and then x900h.

 

Hmm x900e has very good contrast and brightness. Hdr should look good. It's quite possible his settings are borked. 

Should check black level setting on console - if limited or full and check if it matches TV. Auto should pick it up fine. Also check if tone mapping is on and maybe try hgig. 

Don't play around with auto contrast and all that. Post processing f**ks the input lag and normally doesn't even work in game mode.

Super excited for the new OLED tech coming this year. Any idea by when will these hit the Indian markets? I was planning to get a C1 in Feb/March but maybe I should wait now :D

 

Now the decision is even harder with the new 42" OLEDs by both LG and Sony and Samsung QD-OLED gaming monitors (based on Linus's video).

 

If the 42" OLED comes in at ~60k it might be a solid deal to get it for a work desk setup and less of an investment considering how fast the display tech is changing / possible burn-in of OLED.

42-42 inch OLED at 60k even with deals is unlikely case in 2022; expect it to cost at least 80k

Oh noes! This is going to be a tough decision to make :scratchchin:

 

Eitherways I'm excited to see which monitors launch in India with QD-OLED. This might be a real game changer for me because if I can get a good OLED monitor, I may not want a TV.

 

The above video says initial cost of samsung qd-oled is going to be over 10million WON (8000 USD+) lol. :roflroll:🥲

Samsung 2020 led lineups are extremely disappointing , i bought the samsung 50tu8000 at 49k its alright nothing extraordinary for the price, i bought it because of the tvs i checked out. 

I had brought along a pendrive filled with different content to test and none of the other models failed to play them all like samsung did and android/iphone phone pairing was excellent and quick, i was shocked to sony tv 2020 model hang up while trying to play content from my pen drive and a qled lg model froze while i was getting the demo. 

The dealer sucuessfully convinced my family to go for samsung , i personally wanted to get a android tv, any idea on the best android model that matches samsung in 43 to 55 inch class ?

Also whats the stigma on burn-in on qled ?, i was put off on going for one looking at huge stickers plastered on each model saying x years warranty on burn-in

 

I have always had a sense that something was off on this tv , and today the tv bit the dust right 3 months after the 1 year warranty ended, now the tv is stuck in a constant reboot loop, Have raised a service request... hugely disappointed at how poor quality stuff are these days.

Might look into jumping to sony tvs once this gets fixed.

Issue came up out of nowhere , regretting not getting extended warranty.

The service person came up and straight away said that this model has this common issue and they have ordered a replacement panel but in case the display panel is not in stock a 87% refund of amount will be provided. 

 

Just a heads up for people buying samsung tvs , BUY AMC for at least 3 years.

We bought a Samsung 550L fridge few years back since the LG models have low vegetable space. f**king thing started having a gas leak 2 months after the warranty ended. Had to pay 5k to get it repaired officially, and the guy said he does 8-10 such Samsung repairs everyday. 

Our previous Whirlpool fridge worked like a champ for over 12 years ! 

Stopped buying Samsung since that incident. Generally LG or Whirlpool.

For pure luck since we were moving to a new place at that time we bought new LG fridge and washing machine, only the tv we bought Samsung and it turned out to be a lemon :cry:

 

Bought a LG monitor 32 inch last month as well , i will avoid Samsung :wallbash:

Bought a Samsung Fridge last year. Makes knocking sounds in rainy season because apparently even at a temp. setting of 5-6, it's creating excessive ice.

2 service guy came and after that they stopped following up.

No matter how many requests I put in, they never come.

 

Should have just gotten LG but my mom wanted that extra space.

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.
