Once again I call upon the knowledge and advice of my fellow forum members (it's been a while)

Mainly from a features point of view , just generally not as good a product as your mainstream companies , also , having a play with one it just didn't seem as polished as the 58dx750 that I bought , maybe they were cleverer then I gave them credit , maybe not , whatever , I do know that I am very happy with the panny I bought , and I'm not just saying that because if I wasn't it would have gone straight back , at the price point it is ridiculously good from a picture point of view , I thought the sound was a little weak but some fiddling has made it sound very good considering the limitations of flat screen speakers ....

Yes the sound isn't a factor i'm bothered about from a TV but i'd be interested to know what formats it decodes (my plasma was limited to DD5.1). Also how is the TV's media player (does it support x264/ x265/ HEVC)

OK My shortlist for my new TV so far and I've decided that I have to increase my budget in order to get comparable (superior?) picture quality to my current 50" Plasma


HiSense H55M7000 £799 (this TV seems to have a bit of a cult following on the forum)

Sony KD55XD8005BU £999 (Does this TV justify the £200 price difference)

Panasonic 58dx750 £1050 (an extra £50 gets me a larger screen size but is it a superior set?)


Pros and Cons for all of my choices greatly appreciated as well as recommendations for a set comparable or superior that I may have overlooked (at the same price point (£800-1000)

UPDATE: OK so I’ve almost reached the end of my quest and narrowed it down to a decision between 2 very different TV's. I had to increase my budget in order to get a TV that I’m going to be happy with but I find myself in quite a dilemma.....

Do I go the Mammoth screen size/UHD/HDR road or do I compromise on the size and bells and whistles and go for the enhanced picture quality delivered by OLED technology?

The 2 sets that I’ve narrowed my search down to in order to find a suitable Plasma replacement are....

LG 55EG910V Smart 3D 55" Curved OLED TV £1289
Hisense 65m700 £1200

I don't currently have a desire to purchase UHD Blu Ray or a gaming console but still I’m finding this final choice a nightmare so any input and advice from my fellow forum members would indeed prove invaluable at this critical final stage.

The Sony XD80 made my last shortlist also but was seduced by the screen size of Hisense I'm just a bit dubious about the brand although it does seem to have a bit of a cult following here

My LG Plasma is without doubt the best TV I've ever owned I simply adore it and wouldn't hesitate to buy the brand again

I would personally avoid the Hisense H65M7000 due to the lack of HDR on the Netflix and YouTube Apps and the appalling customer service from Hisense UK. Apart from these it is excellent value for money.
