    Hello all. I'm pretty savvy when it comes to giving advice to my friend's and family for technology, including televisions, but I would like your advice for a lady at work. She and her husband are looking to replace their 10 year old plasma television. The replacement TV will be in a very bright room (with sun shining on it), needs to have WiFi, will be used for general TV watching and Netflix, 60-65 inches and come in at £2000 max. My initial thought was OLED from last year (once prices come down a little), but the very bright room thing has me concerned, especially with sunlight shining on the screen. What would you go for and why? Thanks for reading. :smashin:

    For a bright room (with max £ 2.000) can be a good choice an LCD TV like the Sony 65XF9005. :)

    Below the Avforums review of the 55" edition of this TV set.

    Angelo M - thanks for your response. A good option. I forgot to mention that they're dropping Sky next month so will be relying on the apps built into the tele. My understanding is that Android on this model is particularly bad to use?

    Crafty - didn't know that. I do know the OLED panels certainly don't like sunlight on them! I shall have to point that out to them and see if they can remedy the situation a bit. It's a very light room and one end is just glass so might be difficult!

    Yes, Android on the XF9005 seems to be "terrible" but in the near future it should be updated at the new Android TV major release that may be will solve most of the problems of the current Android TV release. :)

    You already mentioned the best choice, the LG OLEDs at £2000 :)

    Great anti reflection filters, more than bright enough for bright rooms.

    Dodge - it's certainly where I would go. Having had Panasonic Plasma and now a Pioneer Kuro, OLED is my preference when I replace my screen in the next few years. As they are coming from plasma I feel that's best for them, but wasn't sure if it would be bright enough for them. I shall have to draw them a list of pro's and cons and then tell them to go view my shortlist to decide I think. Thanks for your input. Much appreciated.

    I think OLED is a good bit brighter than plasma...

    Indeed it is, certainly more so than a ten year old one! Perceived wisdom seems to be LED for particularly bright rooms on my experience is all. I imagine an OLED will blow them away after a plasma from ten years ago (unless it's tweaked like my Kuro which is why I shall hang onto it for a bit yet!).
