RE: WHAT TV !!!

Can I ask what your budget is and why you selected these three tvs? Could you go bigger for example?

RE: WHAT TV !!!

I would look and see if you can find one of last years Samsung F6740 or F6670.  Same TVs, different shades of silver.  My brothers just bought one super cheap, it has been excellent.  It should in theory have better motion than the H6400 as although the F6740 is a year older, its a few rungs higher up the range.

RE: WHAT TV !!!

I'm in a similar position to you, tutts58x - I'm after a 46/47 inch tv, not at all worried about 3D and can't afford UltraHD and/or 4k - I just want the best possible full HD picture for under (well under, preferably) a grand. My only other requirement is an optical out, as I'm looking to run the sound through my Marantz M-CR603. My searching has, so far, left me dazed and confused...  :?

Good set from last year for a good price, plus the free 5ry from John Lewis.

RE: WHAT TV !!!

Funnily enough, I'm looking at exactly the same models of the Sony and the Samsung, but also comparing those against another Panasonic that was reviewed recently, the TX-40AS640

If it wasn't for the input lag on the panasonic above, I would jump on it right now - but I'm not sure I could live with 59ms. If only a firmware update would help this along Beee  

 

The sony model seems to have issues interpreting remote control functions at startup, which isn't a big deal - but it would probably annoy me more than it reasonably should Smile

 

I'll probably take the safe option and go with the Samsung, I know what I'm getting there - but then, I do feel like a change... decisions decisions.

Amongst LED TVs, Sony has the best input lag, and Vincent Teoh of HDTV Test was raving about it when I attended the TV shootout last month.
