Father wants to buy a new TV for hall (well lit area)

 

 

This Qled/OLED by samsung just marketing names or what is the real difference and better in the end ? 

If they are really the real deal, dealing the purchase for 6 months is also an option.

 

4k for sure.

Budget for now : 65k, size : 43 to 55 inch, if 43 inch in this budget is way ahead then 43, but if not much difference then 55 inch.

 

Budget can be stretched but only for if it's worth it/huge difference.

 

Don't understand these tech stuff much, so basically what's trending, what's best and why(in consumer terms) ?

Well, in short, OLED is the way to go. Best PQ with deepest blacks.

QLED is not OLED, does not produce as deep blacks but can get comparatively brighter than OLED.

Although OLED will get bright enough to handle well lit areas.

 

OLED does come with permanent picture retention i.e. burn in but modern Tv's have tech to mitigate that, so unless you 

blast the TV at full brightness with the same image all the time, you won't experience. And that's what QLED does not have,

no risk at all.

 

Basically, don't think of QLED in any different way as compared to what other brands offer.

 

Now at that budget, both of them will be out of your reach, your budget needs to be around 1.1L otherwise.

It's worth the money, but probably not enough if it's not your primary tv. This ultimately boils down to you.

 

In your budget, you can look at various 4k models which LG makes.

Great explaination,

OLED is better than Qled but how better is Qled compared to normal ?

 

With this budget of 60 k then, a 43 inch QLED Samsung fits within range, 

Would once head to the shop to notice the big difference between QLED and normal 4k a d decide.If not noticeable by myself then 55 inch normal 4k.

 

Might prefer Samsung over LG.

(Can get a bit extra discount for Samsung)

If not have been suggested sanyo,iffalcon but most probably Samsung.

QLED is not better or worse than normal. It just so happens that Samsung terms their range as QLED.

You don't have to consider the term at all.  QLED is normal, don't treat it differently.

The difference will only be due to one being of a higher range, not because of QLED.

 

You should go with atleast a 55inch, because no amount of PQ will be able to compensate.

In this price range, it won't be logical to for Samsung.

Go with LG, better bang for the buck and assurance of a well known brand.

 

Otherwise my suggestion would be to stick with IFFalcon or VU premium, most bang for the buck.

I know something must be missing on the Samsung one other than the 1cm difference.

But basic features seem to be more or less the same.

Will enquire showroom prices, will only get Samsung if the same price as LG and same features.

(He does give extra discount so I think they might come out at the same price and cheaper than online)

Vu Premium Android 163cm (65 inch) Ultra HD (4K) LED Smart TV

 

This is really good..

 

Dont even go near the Samsung 6 series which is released this year.. Really poor in terms of even comparing with budget range ones..

Stay away from Samsung 6 series, they aren't close to the other competitor's performance.

You will be forking over money mainly for the brand.

 

Go for VU Premium or IFFalcon.

Picture quality matters in tvs, not features. There is no point of features if picture quality is pure. For your budget, go for 55 inch vu premium. Excellent vfm

Any recommendation for 47 to 55 Inch 4K TV in the 45 to 50k range? Was considering the one from Xiaomi but the reviews on Amazon aren't great at all.

Wait for some days. OP is launching a 55 inch TV.

Yep. Holding off till there's more info on this. Mostly will go for a VU 55 or 65 inch as recommended above because news on the OP TV is that it's going to be priced in the premium TV range. Have little hopes that it will fit I  this budget but if it's great VFM then will consider stretching

 

For people with the VU Android TV, how's the UI? I've read on some TVs it get very laggy. Would it be better to get the Linux based version instead?

Is tv a good choice for pc monitor ? As per ur experience

Depends on usage. Not a great choice for high framerate or competitive gaming. Don't consider it if you intend to do photo editing or any editing work that involves color accuracy.

 

Otherwise for general usage like browsing and watching movies, if you are okay with scaling font, you can go for it.

Dont know if its just me but i think most of the movies look so much better on my TV rather than in a theater. Apart from select PVR theaters and IMAX, where ever i go after about 15 mins into the movie i am like it looks much better on my TV than here. You guys feel the same? I am on  X8500f Sony. Have started to skip many movies now because of this.

Modern Tv's have several pc specific modes now. My LG does [email protected] I have enough juice to run games at [email protected] Pc input makes lag noticeable. The only one should consider before making a purchase of Tv for usage as monitor is lag input in SDR and HDR and the viewing distance. You cannot sit close to a 43 inch Tv the same way we do with monitors.   

Photo editing will require pro grade monitors which cost a bomb. If one can afford that then by all means get those.

From Reliance Digital, after haggling with LG Shoppe and Croma. 

 

They billed for 1.3lacs, with CB in account (not wallet) for 27k. 2k or some CB by paying down payment via Citi (or was it HDFC - dont remember), and rest via Bajaj Finserv (NC-EMI). 

I guess I'll have to check our the same Reliance digital. Not able to find this deal at local croma. :(

Wait till Diwali. 

 

Even at diwali, Croma wasn't willing to give major discount. So I wouldn't count on them. For almost every big electronic shopping, found RD to be better. We bought our TV, fridge, washing machine etc from them. On every occasion they gave better discounts, and in general were more pleasing to talk to as compared to Croma guys.
