I’m in the market for a 4K Smart TV*. Due to the size of the cottage, it has to be a max of 40 inch and less than 10kg. It’s to be wall mounted. Max budget of £450ish.
What’s the best value/picture/usability available ?
I expect recommendations for TVs costing many thousands of pounds and screen sizes in excess of 55 inches.
Which are the best brands or the one that you bought so there is some reinforcement of your choice.
*For the record, I have already chosen the one I will buy and where from. So all recommendations that do not agree with my choice will be dismissed as rubbish and unhelpful.
I chatted about this with @coco in the pub last night; I might get something similar in the black Friday sales.
From when I went into John Lewis a few weeks ago, there is a huge difference between 4k cheap and 4k expensive. They all talk about high dynamic range and stuff, but you get what you pay for.
Anyway, if I buy one it will be a Samsung, because the smart system is great (my current one happily plays any file on my server) and they tend to be good value. I’ll be checking HUKD tomorrow to see if there is one that is actually genuinely cheap.
we have a big LG downstairs and it is great, and smaller Samsung ones in the Kitchen and Bedroom and they are great. I’d buy LG again as I prefer its SMART features. I suspect they are all much of a muchness.
I recall reading that 4k is pointless on a 40" if you sit more that 5’ away (or something similar)…
