Question Easy to use 42" tv required with budget up to £750

My Mum (in her 80's and a technophobe) wants a new 42" tv

Currently got a 5yr old 32" Sony; watches everything through Sky but doesn't understand HD v SD etc, she just wants a decent picture and nice looking (looks are important to her !) with small bezel. Also watches DVD but nothing more sophisticated. Needs to be simple to operate.

Her partner watches an awful lot of sport so something good with motion and a budget of around £750. She'll also want a recognised brand !

Any advice/pointers would be appreciated as with her very broad requirements not too sure where to start as too much choice.

Thanks in advance

Get a second hand Plasma TV if motion is a concern. It will be by far better with motion than current LCDs. Particularly because all FHD TVs and budget UHD TVs now have only 50/60hz panels.

If you don't want to go second hand then the first TV i can think of that size with a 100/120hz panel that should be good with motion would be this model: Sony XD83 4K HDR with Android TV

But it uses an IPS panel, so doesn't rank as high in contrast and blacks as other models with VA type panels. However maybe they need the wider viewing angles from IPS?
