    Hi guys just looking some input. I'm looking for a TV for the main room (4k her movies and gaming) but can't decided on a set. I love good blacks and colour.
    Priced low to high. All from richer sounds .
    LG 49uj670 - good budget screen. Heard it has week uniformity.
    Sony xe7002/hisensen6800- similarly priced. Good colour bad blacks?
    Sony xe8004- heard it's a solid set. Not great blacks
    LG sj800- supposedly a great set with ok blacks but topline everything else.

    Is the jump really that big from set to set in picture quality. I'm defo leaning towards the LG but picture quality is more.improtant than smart functions so it's really a toss up between the xe8004 and the sj800v.

    Any help?

    Cheers

    I was looking at the LG 49SJ800V but the one thing that puts me off is that it supposedly uses an RGBW panel which doesn't give you a proper 4K resolution.

    At 49" nothing gives you 'Full 4K resolution' because the pixels are too small to provide maximum benefit. That's only really a concern either for unusually close use (desk top) or the 75" versions.

    @Wafflestomp: Well the XE70 (in 55"+) and N6800 have several times the contrast, so they're really the only option if you don't want to dim the whites to get good blacks.

    What do you mean by 'good' colour? Accurate?

    @Wafflestomp we need a bit more detail regarding your viewing conditions and sources. For example:
    View at night? Day? Light on?
    Wide viewing angles needed?
    What HDR and UHD sources will you have?
    Will you still view any standard definition sources?
    What are you current using and why are you looking to upgrade?
