Question New 4k led or stick with old 720p plasma

just wondering

I currently have a old HD 720p 2007 lg 60 inch plasma, tempted to upgrade, but often see people say plasma still offers the better PQ , my main source will be 1080, should I stick with my plasma or take the plunge!

Slow village internet and only free view

I still like the old plasma PQ, but it does seem after 9 years of use a new TV is due.

I'm thinking of going to a 65 inch, maybe try a bargain priced Hisense at £715 via John Lewis for the 5 year warranty price matched with crompton and Moore.

Or maybe the 10bit 7000 Hisense model

But the budget can stretch to around 1k

Advice welcomed :)

Go and take a look at the Hisense as I think that would crystalise your decision. TVs have come a long way since you LG plasma. I went from a top of the range 2012 Panasonic 1080p to a budget 2015 Panasonic LED LCD UHD panel and the PQ improved markedly on the budget LCD.

I'd be tempted to save a little more and go for the Samsung 65" KS7000.

You should see a sizeable drop in the prices for 2016 models in January as a lot of the 2017 models will be revealed at CES.

I would stick to a plasma but not the plasma you have. Last generations plasma still look better than todays leds

Well as you're about to

What price did you pay and where did you decide to buy from?
I went with John Lewis in the end , they priced matched against Crompton and Moore at 1029 delivered with a 5 year warranty .

One benefit of John Lewis is that for example if the price drops within 28 days of making the purchase on their website , e.g boxing day sales , then if you contact John Lewis they will give you the difference back EVEN if you price matched this time of year it is a nice extra bit of peace of mind....! So I shall keep a eye out for price drops in the sales....hopefully to 899 !!! :)
