    Hope you can help, my 10 year old 32 "Sony Bravia has finally died and I'm looking for a slightly bigger replacement.

    It's currently set up with Virgin TiVo box, Netflix, amazon prime and a Lodi box running through a PI3. We generally sit approx 3-4m from the TV

    Ive done a bit of reading already OLED look fantastic but is out of my budget. I've had a quick look and and I'm looking at these so far


    LG 43UJ670V

    LG 43UJ630V

    Panasonic TX40EX700B

    Toshiba 43U6763


    I spoke to Richer sounds briefly and the guy did say that the Toshiba was popular but on left to right movement it did jitter.


    Any suggestions? I was thinking of getting a sound bar too, any suggestions?

    Out of those TVs the Panasonic is best. If you still watch standard definition TV at 3-4m you may be better off just buying a FHD TV like this one: Bargain - Samsung UE55M5520 (FHD) - £439

    Its available in 40 inch also.

    Thanks Dodgexander. I wasn't necessarily going for one of those 4 it was just my initial short list.

    All recommendations welcome. Is it worth getting a sound bar with newer TVs?

    Its one of the models I usually recommend: Guide: My best value TVs, 2017 Edition

    Yes, definitely worth a sound bar. These flat TV's sound awful.

    But you can always see when you get the TV if the sound is adequate for you or not.

    Cheers again Dodgexander.

    Great guide. I ended up going for the LG 43UJ670V in the end from Richer sounds with a 6year guarantee for £379. Panasonic did look good the only stumbling block was the feet on the 40" version and the unit it was going on.

    I've just tried the UHD on prime and BBC IPlayer...looks stunning.
