So a little background first........ Having always only ever bought either Sony or Panasonic it was time around this time last year to replace our old Plasma TV. Having researched as much as I could we opted to buy a LG55SJ810V.AEK from Curry's where my wife gets a small discount. It was great at first but having noticed a variation in colour and contrast across the screen LG sent their engineer who promptly replaced the panel. All was well for a few days and then exactly the same thing happened and LG have now classed the TV 'beyond economical repair' and I have until May 22nd to take it back to Currys for a credit against any other TV that they stock.......the question is which one?! I'd sort of decided a few weeks ago on the LG OLED55B8PLA 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR OLED TV and have posted before on here asking about it but the more I read about image retention and burn in and with the previous experience with my first ownership of an LG TV, I'm now not so sure. At the time of buying a year ago the OLED TV's (and QLEDS) were too far over budget but I'm happy now to add a bit to the pot and spend around £1000 on a 55" but just don't know what would be best! At the moment we are struggling with a poor content option from NOWTV but are trying to go over to SKY Q in a couple of weeks if they are able to install in what is a very modern house built in a factory and made of wood with Siberian Larch timber cladding (don't ask!).......they have been once and gone away without fitting a dish and a 'specialist team' will apparently be coming again to try and install in around 10 days (they apparently don't like drilling into wood!) We just watch TV (Amazon Prime, Netflix and general free to air programs), no gaming and we are very careful with our stuff! Having said that, we are expecting family to come and stay with us for a few months who tend to have the TV on during the day, kids TV mainly and they often pause the content while doing other things which is something we never do......... So I guess the $64,000 question is: if you had around £1000 to spend in Currys what TV would you buy as I just can't decide what is best at that price point. I'd like to add about £300 on top of the TV and get a reasonable soundbar as well but my little brain can't contemplate having to think about that as well.......it's all so confusing for someone in their 60's who struggles with technology! For those that have read this far, apologies for the waffle and thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
