There's a diagram lol the chair at an angle is my concern.
I don't have one near me :-(Sit on the sofa then
Could go to John Lewis and stand at the distance you’ll be viewing and at the angle the chair would put you at and see what you think?
Thanks for the advice. I'd never spend £1k on a TV though!If you are going to use that nearest chair you probably will want to get a 49" LG instead of 50" so you get an IPS panel.
Sony TVs in the guide have the best viewing angles though. All depends how important the picture looks good at that nearest chair compared to the one head-on.
The reason specs state different panels on TVs is because the same TV at similar sizes uses different panels. With LG they have 50" models that are using VA panels, and 49" models using IPS.
Luckily this is something I already knew when I made the guide, so I separated them based on their panel type there.
If you are happy with what you're using then going for another LG is going to give you very similar experience, only bigger. If I were you I'd consider saving up though and getting a TV closer to the 1000 mark later down the line, that way you get a nice improvement over what you're using, and a TV that is also capable of reproducing HDR properly.
If you are going to take a hit in lower quality sources looking worse on a larger TV, you are best making sure the TV does other things better than what you're using. Otherwise you get a picture quality downgrade, rather than upgrade.
The value in cheaper TVs now is pretty poor, TVs like the Sony 49XH9505 are where the money is at in terms of value or if you need viewing angles, OLEDs like the LG 48CX.
Thanks so much. I like the look of the UN7300. Meets all my criteria. However I've never heard of Peter Tyson. Are they pretty good?Did you see the LG listed in my guide under the wide viewing angle section?
The one you linked from ebuyer looks like a Hotel model to me, go for the UN7100, UN7300 or UN7390 instead. As long as its 49 it will be IPS.
Here's a search that shows the others. I'd suggest the UN7300 from Peter Tyson
If not, Hughes are on eBay and often have discount promotions, might be worth monitoring for a week or two if not in a rush.I'm going to try and get Hughes to price match
That 25 code didn't work. Only available on certain items.If not, Hughes are on eBay and often have discount promotions, might be worth monitoring for a week or two if not in a rush.
I recently got 15% off a microwave that way.
Or try code SALE25 for £25 off if no price match or other code available
Yep, no difference in picture quality even up to the UN8100. You can view the minor changes here:
