New 55" maybe KDL55W829
English

Hi all,


I am looking at purchasing a new 55" TV with my budget being around the £1200 mark. I have seen the KDL55W829 which I quite like, but there doesn't seem to be any reviews for it yet. I know it's based on the 5* (now 4*) 50" version, so I expect it will be good, but wanted to know if anyone has had any experience of it?

I do like the 4k tv's, but suspect they may be out of my price range at present?

Also if anyone can recommend a better 55", it would be appreciated, I have always been a fan of Samsungs.


thanks

chris.

Don't know what your budget is but you can get a 4K samsung tv here for less than £1200 although it might be worth spending a bit more to get a five year guarantee.

That Sony is a very good TV. Check this review:

Even that's for the 50-inch version, but the 55-inch one should be similar.

Thanks for your reply's. I have seen the 50" review on here too which made me interested in the 55", I was just hoping there may be a review of that around as I know it doesn't always mean the bigger size would be good too.

I have seen some of the 4K tv's for around the £1500 mark, but I would be worried that although they can do 4K, the quality would not be great. I thought maybe I would be better putting my money into a better HD TV instead - plus the fact there is very little 4K content.

At a 55" screen size I wouldn't pay £1500 for it if it had 4k. Can't see it being any good to be honest
