    Hey there, was hoping for some buying advice.

    I'm looking to buy a TV around 40" with the purpose of mostly playing PS4 games with occasional movie watching. I'd like low input lag and if possible HDR/4k support just so it will last as I don't intend on upgrading often. Budget wise I could probably go to around £600.

    At the moment this is the TV I am looking at
    Samsung UE40KU6000k 40-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    I heard this is the best TV for my needs with low input lag as well.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the response.

    Am I better off waiting to buy a new TV then? I currently have a 32" 2007 or 2008 1080p Sony Bravia and sit around 7 feet away from the TV. If I follow your recommendations correctly there isn't an ideal TV at my price range and screen size?

    There are so many factors to buying a TV these days. I can't make head nor tail of it all.

    I agree it's a pain. No question about that.

    If you care for HDR I would probably wait for the Sony FHD models with HDR this year. They may come as late as September but what you have to remember regarding the HDR consoles is due to lack of horsepower most games have 3 modes.

    UHD with reduced frame rate
    UHD with reduced textures but slightly better frame rate
    FHD with full frame rate and textures

    So my bet is especially at lower price ranges and lower screen sizes you're going to be better off waiting.

    You could also just buy cheap now and again in a couple of years but I do have a feeling this year is going to be a good one for gamers Especially.

    PS I still use a 8 year old Samsung LCD allbeit a 40" and I'm still waiting :)

    Sorry to bring this thread up again but Coop are offering the Sony KD43XD8077SU with a 5 year warranty for £600 until Monday.

    How would you rate this TV and price?

    I have it in my head that I need a new TV, there's a game out the 1st of March I want and the TV monkey on my shoulder won't let up.

    Should I continue to hold out?

    Do you have the PS4 pro? If so you will want to pair it with the best HDR tv you can, the Sony has support for better colour with HDR but thats it, you want to spend more on at least a Samsung KS7500 (43) or KS7000 (49) to get good HDR.
