Hi, I have a 55" Samsung M5520 FHD TV which is 19 months old and has developed a minor screen fault. I bought a 2 year warranty extension with it, but the warranty company is only offering a Samsung 55NU7021 worth £399 as a replacement, which is completely unsuitable for my requirements and 20-25% cheaper than my existing TV was. I have the option to upgrade the replacement TV to a Sony 65XF9005 for £1000 saving £500, which is better or a 55XF9005 for £600, saving £400. However, if I pay the difference for the 65XF9005 I'm concerned I'll only have 17 months month's warranty left on it at best and I certainly wouldn't want to be dealing with this warranty company and their crappy replacements again if I needed to claim on the new TV. A standalone 5 year warranty would cost around £325 making the upgrade cost £1325, which isn't far off the £1499 I could buy the TV for from Richer Sounds or John Lewis with a better 5/6 year warranty. I'm thinking worst case I could take the Samsung 55NU7021 and sell it for £300 then buy the Sony 65XF9005 elsewhere. Net cost £1,200. I will of course take the warranty company to task over whether the Samsung 55NU7021 with just 2 HDMI ports is a suitable replacement. I had enquired about Samsung 55NU7400 or 55NU8000 as replacements, but they aren't available via their supply channel. I then asked about a Hisense 55U7A or 65U7A, but am waiting to hear back on availability and upgrade cost. I think I'll probably get the best "free" TV I can out of them to sell and buy something elsewhere with a better warranty. Which brings me to my question (finally). Is the Sony 65XF9005 my best bang for buck at £1500? The TV will be in a very bright room and is also used extensively at night. My sources are Now TV (720p), Humax FreeSat (90% 720p, 10% 1080p) and possibly Amazon Prime, but my internet speed isn't sufficient for steaming 4K. There will be some very occasional gaming - I sometimes move the PS4 to the lounge for a day or 2. I went for a FHD when buying my existing TV as I wasn't very impressed with 720p upscaling to 4K on anything available at the time under £1500. The TV is wall mounted and viewing distance is 9-10ft. I would love an OLED like the LG B8, but it's in quite a bright room and I understand the Sony does a better job of upscaling 720p. OLED screen burn/image retention isn't as much a concern for me. Are there any other 65" inch TV's up to £1,500 I could be looking at with good upscaling? John Lewis have the Sony KD65ZF9 at just £1,299, but I understand that has some backlight issues. A Samsung 65NU8000 at £1,029 is still tempting value. I hope some of you are still awake after reading this.
