Recommendations on purchasing a 65 inch tv
For in around €2000
Should I go for SAMSUNG?
Each manufacturer makes good and bad. I'd recommend the highest range TV in your budget from the list here: Best HDR TVs - 2017 Edition
Prices are different in different regions so it's hard to recommend certain models. Ideally you want to aim for the LG 2017 OLEDs which should be at their cheapest now as they clear out stock for the 2018 models. It will depend on local pricing how close these are to your budget though.
Thanks for the reply,
I had a LG65SJ850V great TV, a green vertical line appeared on the tv sent it to Craigavon tv repairs, they got in touch with LG won't have the spare part till the end of September, so they gave me back a full refund of €1675.00
Its decision again
Does that mean you’re restricted to a certain retailer? North or South of the border?
Restricted to Harvey Norman south of the border.
Just after been looking at
Sony 65” XF90 €2699
Sony 65” XF87 €1949
Tried to look on their website but their filter is broken so it's very hard. How much are the lg b7 or c7? What about the Panasonic oleds?
The two models you mentioned are very overpriced for what they are. New models fetch a large premium. You're better off buying higher end from ranges from the year before.
John Lewis has XF9005 for less -
Sony Bravia KD65XF9005 LED HDR 4K Ultra HD Smart Android TV, 65" with Freeview HD & Youview, Black at John Lewis
Can you get a price match? Looks as if HN are low on 2017 models.
HN zero 2017 models
XF90 on line price is €2179
I’ll check out the LG B7 and C7
And Panasonic OLED when I get home cheers
OLEDs will be 55”
Panasonic 55" OLED 4K PRO TV | TX55EZ952B
Panasonic 55" Ultra HD 4K Pro HDR OLED TV | TX55FZ802B
LG 55" OLED TV | OLED55B7V
You’ll find it difficult downsizing. I’d go for XF9005 @ 65”.
I'd wait for the XF9005 to come down in price and also monitor the Q8DN and Q9FN for deals. I wouldn't spend over 2100 on it.
Are the 65" OLEDs too expensive from 2017? They would represent better value than the 65XF9005.
If the 55" B7 is only 1600 then the 65" version should be close to 2000.
HN have no 65” OLEDs.
While I agree re waiting - he has no tv; and it’s really only €400 he’s spending. It’d be difficult to wait.
Can you clarify op?
First you said there are no 2017 OLEDs at Harvey Norman, yet there are only 55"?
Second you said you receive a refund from Harvey Norman, does that mean you can buy elsewhere or not?
I’ll check out the Lg B7 65 inch price
Going to stick with a 65 inch I’ll struggle to downsize to a 55 inch, basically LG gave HN the value of the tv so I have to spend it in HN
That’s the issue I was having
Man this situation sucks. Zep is right if limited to hn then the 65xf9005 is best value even if it is overpriced right now. Unless you look to spend less but it depends on the model and price.
Their website is awful for finding different models.
Ok the latest update is LG has credit my Harvey Norman account, €1675 that’s how much I paid for the LG65SJ850V (has to be spent in HN)
At moment I’m going for the Sony XK90 Which is costing €2179
I might purchase a soundbar any recommendations?
Thanks again lads.
No idea with the soundbars but there is a soundbar section on this forum and reviews of soundbars too.
You don't need wide viewing angles do you? That will be a major change with this TV compared to your lg.
Don’t need wide angle viewing, do you know if the Sony 65” XF90 been a success so far? Reading mixed reviews at the moment.
Missing my LG65SJ850V do you know what the upgrade to the 65SJ850V is?
XF90 has been getting good reviews - slight fly in the ointment is the Android OS but some users report no major issues with it.
SK8xxx replaces your LG. I’d expect the Sony to be better, especially with black levels and contrast. But then again, if you liked the LG you’ll more than likely like it’s replacement.
If you don't need the wide viewing angles you'll love the Sony's picture quality compared to your LG.
Think I’ve decided on the LG 65SK8100
For a couple of reason..
1. I liked my old LG65SJ850V
2. Dolby Atmos
3. Dolby Vision
4. Nano Cell screen
I have to say I don't agree with your decision for a number of reasons:
First, you don't need wide viewing angles which means you could get better contrast, blacks and screen uniformity by going for a TV with a VA panel.
Second, Dolby Atmos processing is useless if you do not have the means to reproduce it. Yes the LG may process dolby atmos but no TV is going to sound good, regardless of what sound it can process or not. If you want good sound you need to invest in a soundbar, integrated sound system or an AVR and Speakers.
Third, Dolby Vision HDR is not a benefit to have on a TV that is going to be so bad with HDR to begin with. There are many boxes to tick for good HDR and the LG doesn't tick many of them.
Last, Nano Cell is just LGs marketing for the TV having a wide colour gamut, its nothing different from other manufacturers, just with a different name. Samsung and Hisense call it Quantum Dot, Sony Triluminous, Panasonic Wide Colour Spectrum etc
I’m backing tracking to the Sony XF90 €2179
Has the Samsung NU8000 got good reviews?
Mixed reviews. Sony worth the extra.
The Sony is now €1999
Might add a sound bar to it
Ok finally got my Tv I went for the
Sony 65” XF90
If I could get some help what are the best settings for the Tv?
