I bought a Vu 55" 4k HDR Android TV in 2019 and has given me nothing but trouble. It wasn't a high end TV or anything (cost ~40k) but after around a year it started restarting randomly, often within 5mns of last restart. Got it repaired for 4k but same issue popped up within 2 months again. Then it stopped registering the remote. No updates ever came and too laggy within 2 years. Its an immensely frustrating experience. Will soon replace it with a good brand TV such as LG, Sony or Samsung.

That TV just sucks. Will never buy VU again. Posting it just as an FYI.

If you're looking for cheap TVs get a TCL instead.

Are OLEDs still vulnerable to burn ins y'all? Or have they finally found a way to prevent it? Haven't kept up with the tech for a while.

Burn risk very low unless you watch stb with constant static elements. Little to no risk for games, streaming services, etc. Tech has evolved a lot now.

Question: Do you all use any voltage stabilizer specifically for the TV? 

 

My house doesn't handle fluctuations that well. Has old internal wiring apparently. Has f**ked my soundbar's motherboard previously. Thank god soundbar was in warranty. Currently it's just plugged to a spike buster/spike guard. Thinking of buying a stabilizer. Please suggest one in case anyone uses it.

Yes. Better to be safe than sorry. Buy a v guard stabiliser. This is the one that I use.

I only use good quality spike guards with all our TV's and they have been serving us well since years. There are occasional voltage fluctuations in our area as well.

I could be very wrong but from what I've read, TVs already have stabilizers and don't need an external one.

Ya but I don't want to take further risk as my house is prone to severe fluctuations which had already affected my soundbar.....thank God soundbar was in warranty. The motherboard was replaced free of cost. So won't take any further risk

You can put your TV on the inverter, that should take care of the spikes. Can also enable UPS mode on your inverter.

Entire home runs on inverter itself and it's in UPS mode....and inspite of that fluctuations are still fkin up my devices lol.

That's very weird. Maybe the inverter is just passing the direct supply through and not regulating it. Shouldn't be the case on the UPS mode.

Is your inverter sine wave?

Not sure if sine wave or not ...should check....what if it's sine wave?

Sine wave is better than square wave inverters. Better voltage regulation.
