4k.. mmmkay

1

Right time to go 4k, let's talk tvs and content

going for a new TV so any recommendations are welcome

Ideally HDR and low latency for the gaming. Hoping to spend 700-800. Size anything from 40-55. Show off your tvs

Regards content.. Gonna go for Virgin full house package or sky q depending on the deals

At face value Virgin seems the better option when taking into account I already have the Internet so it would work out around 80 for everything. Includes BT sports

Anyone know much about the content on Virgin. I would imagine sky have a bigger selection but I see the virgin box the v6 supports HDR which sky q doesn't and has no plans to AFAIK

If your going to get 4k, go 60+ inches. Def dont get anything less than 55. I vote for samsung. Make sure you check how many HDMI ports can pipe HDR. My samsung for instance only has one.

Be sure to get 10-bit HDR (and watch out for the fake 10-bit ones which are actually 8-bit but has some software things that's meant to give them 'equivalent' to 10-bit... they're apparently far closer to standard 8-bit than a proper 10-bit panel).

Richer Sounds usually does 6 year guarantee for free also, I think.

Have never really looked into the viewing distances before mm but i see what you mean.. seems pointless to get say a 50inch 4k tv and sit 10 feet away from it in a living room

So it's either go big or go home (or sit a lot closer)

I'm kinda torn between replacing the tv in the living room with something around 60inch or getting a smaller one and keeping in kitchen for gaming, where id be sitting a lot closer

Must look into the types of HDR, i think the ps4 only supports HDR10 as well

anyone says they don't notice 4K on a 55 needs glasses tbf but 55 would be a minimum these days depending on room size, id love to go bigger in my drawing room but have decided to invest in a 4K projector instead now that prices are down to more reasonable £££ and can get a 130" screen above the fireplace

What do you draw in the drawing room?

My money is on comedy cocks

I have a 55' OLED and an 49' UltraHD - should the UltraHD be better display??? Cos it's not imo.

LG btw

I thought all new LG oled TVs are 4k?

In which case I'd say 4k oled is better than uhd led

Anyone have virgin.. What's their 4k content like? The football up to much on it

0 |

Could someone post up decent examples of 4k sets? Samsung or Sony.

0 |

Mate need yer budget

0 |

About £2k

Better to go with last year's sets anyway, not much new on the 2018 stuff and the high end 16/17 sets will have been updated to support the latest HDR standards, my Sony X93c is a few years old and the picture quality still blows me away and the sound is a million times better than any set out there

0 |

Do you have a sound bar or separates system?

0 |

Factor that in, but for 2k I'd be looking at last year's LG Oled's and a soundbar, last year's Oled's all used the exact same panel so the picture quality is roughly the same throughout the range

Currys done a deal on Sony's top of the range 55" OLED with acoustic screen for about £2500 for a week only, was soon fucking tempted, apparently the man was telling me they where shifting about 10 a day due to the value

0 |

I have a sound bar and woofer. Annual bonus due in April so I may pull trigger on a new telly. Either that or a new watch.

It's what I'd buy if I'd 2k to drop on a telly and didn't need to worry about audio

High end 2017 Panasonic oled, what's not to love

0 |

Use the same panels as a cheaper LG oled but applies Panasonic's magic to it

0 |

I still think Samsung is the dogs balls. Th sound on the one Sony I had was so bad I took it back and replaced it with a Samsung.

0 |

www.audiovideohd.fr//s... thats my telly with the high resolution speakers and wireless sub, the sound is phenomenal from it, cant see me replacing it until TV tech goes 8k/HFR

0 |

Nice telly rj

0 |

Love it, so different from all the other uninspiring identical tv designs, I have no idea why Sony didn't keep it

0 |

I like the small feet too. I find that a centre stand with feet leaves the telly wobbly as fuck too.

0 |

Hard to keep clean with 2 wee'ans constantly touching it but when she's spotless it's a beautiful big slab of black glass

0 |

Have yet to see a better looking telly, Sony discontinued it because people didn't like the speakers ffs, 2nd hand market for them is gold dust as they hold their value

Got this for my self love xmas present www.richersounds.com/l... does ok with the gaming and the one x. COD online im moving to the samsung monitor as its just too big to a twitch shooter. Some decent 4k on iptorrents as well. Virgin is card shared so i've not had a chance to try that yet

0 |

www.richersounds.com/l... starting to look like this will be the pick. Comes in at 1k.

I wish TCL and Vizio tellies were sold here, so frequently see them mentioned as 'best on a budget' in the 4K range, but apparently US only.

0 |

Heard the Vizio are great value alright

The only thing disturbing me about a possible selection at this stage is the refresh rate..
That LG is 60hz and uses frame interpolation of 1900
Can't see much on the reviews about it, I must have a dig on the forums.
No point buying something for 4k footy if it's gonna have motion blur

HFR TV'S aren't available yet, that technology is sitting in the wings ready to go

Got a new TV. Got a 49inch Sony. Got a new Cambridge Audio soundplate to go with it as well. Some difference from the cheap shite I had.
I took out a Netflix subscription as well. Netflix won't work through the ARC but sky does. Not a problem as I can use the optical but it's a headwrecker.
The aul interface on Netflix is a bit ain't it.
