    We've recently moved house and I've somehow managed to convince the other half that owing to the larger lounge we now have, a larger TV is almost a requirement - "the smaller one we have now would look silly on that big wall"

    YAY! I get to do some enjoyable shopping for once.

    Up until this morning, I had my eye on the Samsung UE55H6400 but having found the response time to be over 40ms, this probably won't be the one I opt for. One of my main requirements aside from a decent quality picture, is the ability to perform well as a gaming panel.

    I'm looking for either a 50" or 55" with great picture for everyday viewing (duh!) and fast response time for gaming. 3D just isn't a consideration and while 4k might sound an attractive future proofing option, I just don't see me having a log of 4k sources for the next few years. A minor but additional consideration is that I will be looking to pair it with a sound bar - usually I've found that matching manufacturers on tv and bar will result in less remotes in the lounge :)

    Budget is around 800 quid for the panel.

    So, what's your advice?

    Sony 55w829 if gaming. Was £649 at john Lewis assuming they still have stock. Leaves you budget for the sound bar if you need it

    You'll want to check options if wall mounting as Sony are a bit funny in that regard

    The W75 is a new model which is why its much, much more expensive. The W829 is last years. Honestly, the new 1080p TV's won't offer anything extra over last years models that justifies the price difference. I wouldn't hang around because the W829 won't be available much longer. In fact it might even be gone after this weekend. You just don't know. I'd get down to your local John Lewis pronto!
