    Hey guys, looking to upgrade after using my trusted Sony Bravia Full HD for 10 years. Christ, that things done me well!

    I'm really not to knowledgeable when it comes to this stuff now, it's alot more complicated than it used to be. What I'm really after is a TV which will showcase my Xbox one to its fullest potential and in future the xbox scorpio which I will be picking up. I watch Sky and Netflix to so I want those to look quality aswell, but gaming priority.

    My budget is really about 1k although I'm willing to add an extra 100 is absolutely necessary. Thanks in advance guys, really appreciate the help as this has been driving me nuts for a month.

    Panasonic DX-902 is 1k on their own refurb store on eBay. Won't get better for your money.

    It does have HDR, it is the best performing HDR TV at its price point.

    Hey dodge just another quick question as you seem to know your sh*t. Apparently the input lag in this panasonic isn't great for gaming, which may be an issue as I'm a big online gamer. I've been reading loads about the Samsung ks8000 which I can pick up for a grand, the size is 48inch which is abit lower than I wanted but do you think the Panasonic will still be best for my needs?

    When it came out it had high input lag but has since been reduced to 38ms which is decent.
    Samsung is around 21ms which is better, but anything sub 50 is fine for most people.

    I would not consider it a good deal going for the Samsung if only for that reason because the Panasonic is the much better TV overall. HDR is a lot better on it.

    If you want the best of both world's you would be looking at saving for a 65KS9500 or picking up a LG C6/B6 OLED. You could also hold off and wait for the Sony XE90 to go down in price.

    Decided to take the plunge and get the Panasonic, only 3 left which prompted my hand. Too good of a deal to turn down, thanks for all your help dodge
