    I’ve currently got a 50 inch Sony TV (KDL50W829B) however been looking to replace it recently, now I’ve discovered the TV doesn’t fit VESA mounts I’m seriously looking into finally upgrading the TV. I have posted on here recently but have decided to lower my budget slightly than what I had originally gone for

    The 2 that stand out to me right now are below - my needs will be Gaming, Sports, Movies and then 4K content via BBC/Netflix etc

    LG 55UK6950PLB 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV

    SAMSUNG UE55NU7470 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV

    Thoughts/comments/experiences on these TV’s would be appreciated

    Better value to be had with the Samsung MU7xxx, where the exes represent interchangeable numbers

    I would keep your current TV unless you can go for a model like the MU7000 suggested at least.

    To get a TV that is larger upgrade I would look at trying to find the Sony 55XE9005 which will be a big boost in HDR quality for £999.

    If you want to buy cheap you may as well go bigger and get the Hisense 65N6800 which is both cheaper and a better option than the TVs you linked above.

    Ignore any 2018 models like those, they are very overpriced still compared to last years models on a clearance discount.

    Sorry to jump in - I have no choice but to buy from Argos. I wanted the Samsung 55MU6120 but it has been replaced with the 55NU7100. However, they'll let me have the NU at the MU price of £499. Should I accept that or find the MU in another store?

    Hard to know if the NU7100 is going to be using a Samsung VA or ADS panel at that size.
    The 55MU6120 would be the same, not sure on the panel.

    If it does come with a VA panel then it's a good choice but its a risk.

    A more reliable option would one of the Sony XE70xx models for sale by argos.

    None of these are as good as the 55MU7000 though, if you don't use motion enhancements and don't use HDR though you probably won't need a TV as good as the 55MU7000 anyway.

    Thanks Dodge - money is very tight but I might have to stretch to the extra £50 for the Sony. Have also seen a few Sky Q HDCP issues with Samsungs on the forums and that was a big problem with my Philips TV that just died.

    Some tvs only come with 1 or 2 HDMI ports supporting HDMI 2.0, the Sony has 3x HDMI 2.0 ones HDCP 2.2 compatible.
