    I currently own a 4 year old Sony Full HD 55" TV.

    I need a TV for my PS4 so have decided to move this into the games room.

    I looked a while back at 4K HDR TVs but decided to hold out. I now see I can buy a nice 55" OLED Tv for around £1200. So great I thought and was about to jump on board.

    I then began to think about if I should go larger than 55" given that I view this tv from about 10' away.

    Reading on I found info and various charts that with this viewing distance I should jump to 65". Great I thought, but 65" OLEDs are over 2K so my budget suddenly seems incredibly streteched. That said I remember purchasing a 32" CRT for £999 25-30 years ago.

    Another thing that attracted me to OLED, was the viewing angle but as its only my wife and I sit in front of it most the time, I thought that's a lot of money to spend for a better viewing angle.

    Looking around I have found a Panasonic TX-58EX700B at under £650 which is 4K and HDR. It sounds like the only thing I am gaining here is HDR and a few inches bigger. I have ordered it from JL to try and return if ot happy I guess. Hopefully I will see a diffence from my existing set which cost £799 4 years ago!

    Is my logic correct or should I just jump and buy a £2K plus 65" OLED ?

    Hi Jerry I have replied to your PM but you posted this in the general section so have moved it here. There is a large difference in HDR between that Panasonic and other more expensive models but for normal day to day tv watching its fine.

    to get an idea of some low ball Panasonic prices their outlet get sets at these prices

    65EZ952 £2k (LG B7 @ £2k(Ish) with long warranty is a better buy)
    65EX750 £1k
    65EX700 £850

    58EX750 £750
    58EX700 £480
