Hello Phil and thanks,

Is the table white or cream/beige as it doesn’t look white in your YouTube video?

I hope there will be a side by side comparison between this Samsung and the same QD-OLED Panel Sony. Would love to see a DOLBYVISION vs HDR10 opinion aswell playing same content. I suggest using AppleTV+ or Disney+ for content comparison.

Obviously the standalone Sony review comes first and hopefully firmware is in a good state of iteration for public launch.

Does the Samsung support 1GB ethernet or do we have to revert to external streaming device which does such as AppleTV4k/Nvidia Shield?

All previous models were only 100MB maximum as are most Sony TV’s.

Is there any chance of the podcast being longer? It just seems everything is always on the hurry up.
Phil speaks about the Samsung TV for a while then spends the rest of the podcast hurrying other people up.

Big fan of the podcast, and appreciate the time and effort put in, but I do miss the weekly ones. I guess it was just such a part of my weekly routine on certain days, like meeting some old friends down the pub :)

It was also more entertaining too, as it was really funny with all the banter.

It was a hit from the first episodes, which were the best.
