Steer me in the right direction

Whilst I Posted in another section I was looking at getting the LG OLED 55", I am now wondering after seeing a lot of problems with them is that the route I need to take? A 50-55" is what I am looking for and my main brief is for just watching films via Netflix normal TV and the odd use of the DVD player, and lastly one that runs Dolby Atmos, no gaming involved. My brain does not function so well after a couple of heart attacks and the meds, so taking onboard too much info about specs does become a challenge. So I was wondering if anybody could just simply post up a few other brands and model numbers that might be an alternative for me to go look at reviews on?

Maybe I am paranoid, but after having a little bit of money left to me after me dear dad passed away, I just want to make a wise purchase instead of something that is gonna keep giving me problems. As an example my first overall impression is that there seems to be far more problematic posts in the LG section compared to Sony, I could be wrong though. Any help appreciated thanks.

I've had a Panasonic OLED for 18 months now and a Panasonic plasma prior to that. Both have been trouble free. Most of the new Pansonic OLEDs are now eARC and Atmos enabled with a Netflix app built in.

I wouldn't worry too much about the negative comments about LG TVs. People more often than not join forums to ask about problems on particular makes and models. There are far more happy owners out there than there are unhappy ones it's just that they don't join forums.

As long as you get a TV with a good five year guarantee you should be good to go. With OLEDs there can be a problem with burn in if you watch programmes with lots of banners on them such as the many news channels.

You don't sound like you need to get OLED as such. If you want a quality television then see if you can find one of these, they are last years model so excellent value now. Sony BRAVIA KD55XG9505BU
