My daughter recently decided that it would be a good idea to swing a skipping rope into my Panasonic TX-37LZD70!! I loved this TV and thought the picture quality was great, and had no plans on changing it. However, I obviously need to buy a new TV now and am utterly confused by the range of tvs available now.
I have a bugdet of about £800 (i don't need to spend it all! ), i use the TV mainly for watch Sky HD, occaisionally Blu-rays. My boys are constantly nagning me to buy a games console so i need to take that into consideration. Due to our current internet connection, which is apauling, we do not stream anything. However in a month or 2 we will be getting fibre which may change that I do not see the point of the Smart TV portals, I'm not sure that i would use it, but that maybe just because i don't have it at the moment. 3D is not a requirement, if it has it then we may use it, but i doubt it.
What i am after is a TV with a great picture, that i will enjoy watching now and in the future. It maybe just beacause i have set it up well but i think the picture on my current tv is better than any other i get to watch. With the new slim bezels i think i could go up in size, i can go up to about 1100mm in width.
TV's that i have short listed so far, based on recommendations/reviews:- Samsung 40uh6900 4K - thinking future proofing. I know that content is not available yet but I'm guessing before i replace this TV it will be common place. - Samsung UE48H6400 - It has good reviews, and is much bigger is size than the current TV but is about the same dimensions! Not sure if it will be better to go bigger though? - Panasonic tx-42as740b - Popped into Sevenoaks Sound and Vision and the guy recommended it. Looked like a good picture, from the quick look i had. The only one i could find a review on is the UE48H6400. Any help would be greatly appreiciated.
