Samsung 43J5500 vs Sony KDL40w705c or other? (mainly for gaming and movies)


Novice Member
Hi guys,

I'm new here. I'm trying to make my room a small mancave and wanted to buy a TV with a console before christmas. Of course TV will be used for watching movies every now and then.

My budget for TV only is up to £400, I don't want to spend more.

I came across these 2 on amazon by simply browsing for a TV 40-45 inch (which is what I would look for, no need for a bigger one since I have a small room).

I read a lot of good things about Sony but my knowledge about TV's is close to none and I never really had a console so I thought I could ask smarter people about that.

Are these 2 potentially the best choices? Which one would be better for PS4 and at some point probably xbox one too?
Are there any better options?

Any help would be very appreciated :)

If your budget is £400, and your after a 40in, then the Samsung 40H6400 is a must see! Last years flat panel model, 4 HDMI's, very decent refesh and black levels - a benchmark midrange Full HD TV. Still around in the High Street for £399 (and no, I have no idea what happening on Black Friday - trying not to thing about it!), and a look through the threads will show some happy purchasers.

The two TV's are very decent 2D entry level TV's - all the trimmings, 3 HDMI's, smart, etc. However, the 6400 has a better panel and an extra HDMI. For about the same money, the Samsung 6400 is a better buy.
