    Re: Need a new tv, anyone in the know?!

    there comes a point where your eyes don't care anymore.... the difference between sd and hd is huge.... however between 1080p and 4k it's more subtle and unless you're sitting quite close you'll probably not really care or notice that much.

    More than happy with my LG Smart TV. Had it nearly three years.

    Massive difference in UHD and HD on my TV and my under 40 year old eyes!

    Re: Need a new tv, anyone in the know?!

    Have got a Panasonic that's about 5 year old and it's been great, really nice picture. My only complaint is that the Smart side of things is a bit clunky - it has its own App Store which is very limited.

    I have to use a Fire TV box for my IPTV needs.

    Like golf clubs, there will always be something out next year that is allegedly a game changer . 8K is being trialled in Japan I think, OLED thin bendy screens, you name it. Go and buy a copy of T3 or Stuff to see what is happening. I think TV technology does change a lot quicker nowadays so things do get obsolete quicker, however it will be a few years before 8K is standard or you will be sticking your thin bendy screen TV onto a wall with magnets. I'd say try and get as newer TV as you can that is as future proofed as you can (for example ensure it has HDR might be worth getting if you can http://www.trustedreviews.com/opinio...lained-2927035 ) and it will last you a few years. But don't expect it to be on the bleeding edge of what is available in 5 years time.

    I disagree with future proofing. Buy the TV that matches the feeds you have for it.

    I have nothing 4K as it needs a certain version of HDMI which none of my devices have.

    To make use of a £1k TV I would need to spend that again on kit to feed it.

    Re: Need a new tv, anyone in the know?!

    Always had Samsung TV's, the ones we have in the Kitchen, and bedrooms are LED and LCD and both are great, we did have a plasma Samsung but that got two replacement screens under a known fault before it gave out a third time and we replaced it with a Panasonic. I'd like to get a bigger TV for the lounge some along the lines of a 65 inch OLED curved 4k one, but the CFO tells me the bathroom, bedroom and garden all need attention, also something about the devil ice skating a well.
    IF you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog.

    Netflix, Amazon Prime, EvilSky? They all do 4K and the amount of content available on 4K is only going to increase. So would it not make sense to get a TV with the capability to see 4K if the price of said TV is not that much more than one without?

    Not sure 4K is the be all for everything... Sports, wildlife and sci-fi yes...
    But, for a lot of theatrical releases I remain unconvinced...

    And, I cannot see the point of 8K other than for specialist subjects...
    Doubt our eyeballs can really genuinely see a difference even sub 40 year old ones...

    I tend to let things either mature or die before moving onto it. Remember how 3D tv was the way forward? exactly my point.
    I personally will stick with my 46" Pana plasma with its brilliant picture with blue ray or true hd tv.
    Forever trying.
