Often people come on here with a set budget, but they may not realise that depending on which time you choose to buy, you can get more for your money. This is a pattern repeated every year in the TV industry and it evolves around the new release of models which is usually between spring and summer of each year. At this moment in time (30/07/2017) here in the UK we have mostly missed the boat now on 2016 models. Some rare deals can be found, but mostly all the 2016 models that were the best bang for buck have now sold out. To illustrate difference in pricing, I've grabbed a couple of screenshots of a couple popular tv's price history from pricespy: So what does this mean? No two years are the same and pricing can differ between model ranges/inflation/currency etc but it tells us if you buy at the wrong time, you could be paying a lot for less. e.g Now you can buy the Samsung 55MU6400 for close to £900. Would you like to buy that TV now, or wait until prices drop on better TVs later in time? You could get the KS7000 for close to that price last year, which is a much, much better TV. Would you buy one of the new 2017 OLEDs now, or wait for them to get almost half in price? So you might think, well the MU6400 is a newer model, why not get a newer TV? This is true, but with TVs there is a big difference between budget, mid range and high range products. So much so that if you can get a new budget TV from this year or an older higher end TV from last year, its clear which is better. Do not spend more for less! Buy at the right time instead!
