    Was originally going to buy the Sony XE90 bundle, but now think that might have been overkill for me anyhow

    i need a 55" TV for the main living room which has mostly normal TV (alot of Sport) and some gaming

    I also need a Approx 40" for the boys which will be nearly all gaming (xbox one)

    Im thinking of the two below TV's, saw recommendations on here for the 55" but am unsure about the 40" for gaming (doesnt have to be 40" but dont want to spend to much on it)

    Buy Samsung UE55MU7000 HDR 1000 4K Ultra HD Smart TV, 55" with TVPlus/Freesat HD, Dynamic Crystal Colour + HW-M360 Sound Bar & Subwoofer | John Lewis

    Buy Samsung UE40MU6120 HDR 4K Ultra HD Smart TV, 40" with TVPlus, Black | John Lewis

    Think im set on the MU7000, just not sure if the MU6120 would be any good for gaming, both boys dont have great eyesight, both where glasses.

    Anyone any thoughts/reviews?

    Those are both good choices for your respected uses. The main drawback to both TVs are the narrow viewing angles.

    Samsung MU7000 is a good buy at the moment having recently been reduced however you may not need a TV with a 120hz panel unless you are one to use motion enhancements to smooth out the judder and blur in sports.

    Oh okay mate, many thanks. It seems like we are the same. I spent weeks here last year reading about the Samsung UE55KS7000 until they all went, still didn't buy :-(

    well as you know i went for the Panasonic 58EX700B which took a couple of weeks to arrive, i havent had time to mount it so its still sitting in the box.

    After reading the 700B thread im not sure if i should take it out of the box, im thinking of returning it.

    Any recommendations considering my first post, id watch plenty of Soccer, Hurling etc and films/TV through IPTV Zgemma box. I can go upto around £1000

    Or should i just stick with the Panny. :confused: :confused:

    I think anyone feels like that when they read any owners thread, not just that one.
    IPTV is generally poor quality compared to normal broadcast TV and on an UHD TV you're going to see the worst of it, you need higher quality sources if you want these to look good.

    From a motion perspective if you went up to models like the Samsung 55MU7000 or Sony XE85xx series you will only do better if you use motion enhancements in the TVs settings, out of the box these TVs (and any LCD for that matter) will perform about on par with the EX700..so its only really beneficial if you plan on utilising these settings. Since you're using IPTV, and probably outputting a fixed 50hz, I'd say its probably not.
