    Hi, am looking to replace our old Panny Lcd, with a shiny 65" oled. Have had a look round and shortlisted the following
    LG C8
    Panny EZ 952. (£1999 refurb from Panasonic direct)
    Panny FZ 802
    Sony AF8

    Current TV has free view, and we have humax freesat recorder, bluray and ps4 all going through Denon AV receiver.
    Have dismissed Sony AF9 and Panny FZ952 as they have extra sound features I wouldn't need.
    Which one if any would be the best value or any others I should consider.

    Presuming you like the plasma, I’d be looking at a Panasonic OLED.

    If the refurb only comes with a one year warranty then I’d look for a new model which should come with a 5/6 year warranty.

    I'd wait and get whichever is the best deal come black friday! All too similar to one another not to just get the best deal.

    Unless you have specific requirements for HDR10+ or Dolby Vision.

    To work with UHD sources and depending on your receiver for convenience you may also want to upgrade that.

    Richer Sounds have limited new stock of the EZ OLED - might be worth a shot?

    I bought my TV from the refurb store and I had to return it after for a repair as it arrived with a fault. However I got such a good price I don't regret it.

    I also got my UHD Blu-Ray player from them too. I would still recommend using them at the right price just because the prices can be so low. £1999 for the EZ952 isn't fantastic, but it may come down in price over time also.

    Thanks to all for your replies. Our head on viewing distance is 12 feet, would a 65 oled be wasted as ratings.com suggest at least an 85" screen . I cannot afford a larger oled so would a larger led be of more benefit, thereby saving cash to upgrade other kit?

    There is more to a TV than only resolution so it won't be wasted. What you will find though is you see little to no difference between a good HD source and an UHD one.

    Things like improved colour and general overall improved picture quality should make up for that though.

    Thats the short answer, the long answer would depend how you use the TV and your sources. If you aren't going to always view the latest and greatest quality content then viewing farther away can be better.
