    Hi all.

    My 6 yr old Samsung plasma has all but given up the ghost so I'm looking for a new telly box :)

    It was a 51 incher and tbh in my living room is slightly lost as i'm sat around 13 - 14 ft away for the wall it's mounted on.

    Question is, what would be the best 65" I could afford up to around £1200? The best for motion ideally as I like to watch the football on Sky HD. I don't really want to go above that if I can avoid it the wife would have a fit.

    Cheers all

    I have a hisense M7000 and the motion is great for sports on it plus very good black levels there has been some things like flags in black bars with letterbox content but that is now sorted with a firmware file flashed to the tv it's also 4k and you can pick the 65 up for less than 1k it's a good tv for the money or you can try the newer models which are about your price range and are fully hdr premium aka 1000 nits brightness 20171012_181243.jpg 20171012_181237.jpg

    That's a tough budget to get a TV that uses a 120hz panel...but maybe you are happy with a 60hz one?

    I would demo motion on the Hisense 65N6800 and see if you are happy with it. If so, its really the most you are going to get for your money.

    Perhaps also the Sony 65XE70 series but its more expensive.

    The problem is with current pricing as you look at the Sony XE70 series pricing the XE85 series isn't really that far away in price and that series does have a 120hz panel.

    The cheapest 120hz panel TVs you can get right now will be the Sony 65XE85 series, Samsung 65MU7 series and LGs 65SJ850v..the LG only favourable if you need wide viewing angles.

    There is also the Philips PUS7601 which is the best TV out of all of these that's sometimes available for £1350 on ao.com but its a 2016 model so there may not be many of them around still.

    But if you can hold off and buy at a better time you will likely see some 120hz models fit into your budget.

    This is without actively searching the second hand/refurb/ex display market where you may still find deals on TVs at better prices from last year.

    It's a little over budget at the moment (£1400) but I'd be looking at the 65" Sony XE85.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I can get the Sony XE85 from currys for £1250 they have a 10% off code. Is a 120hz panel going to make all the difference? I'm not really technically clued up on tv's which is why I'm here.

    Just another couple of questions about this TV, I believe the reviews state that it's not the brightest is this going to be a problem? Also from the distance i'm sat away is SD going to look poo on a TV this size? I don't watch much into SD to be fair but the odd thing now and again.

    Or I can get a 65" samsung ks7000 for £1279 even though it's older will it be better???

    If you want to improve motion by delving into the settings and enabling enhancements then yes.

    Only for HDR.

    You sit so far away probably not, but its very subjective.

    For HDR it will be a lot better and handling of reflections yes, for motion no.

    If you're interested in HDR go with the KS7000, otherwise I'd stick with the Sony.

    Update.

    Well I've gone and paid a bit more for a Sony 65XE9005. Got the TV, HTCT290 Soundbar deal and 5 Year warranty for £1550 ordered from Powerdirect. Now I know their reviews are not the best but if anything goes t*ts one of their shops/outlets is about 10mins away from me so they'll be feeling my wrath but we'll see. All in all a very good deal me thinks. Demo'd the tv in another shop and it looks great.

    How is life with with your sony 9005? Looking at the 49 inch model. Is the motion handling of sports good ?
