Which 46-50" TV should I buy?
English

I think I've narrowed it down to the following 4 models... can anyone advise which is best or perhaps suggest an alternative if I've missed one?  I'm looking for something that is as future-proof as possible:

LG 47LM960V

Samsung 46ES8000

Samsung 46D7000

Sony KDL 46HX853

 

Many thanks

thanks - not a huge fan of panasonic but budget is up to 2k although would prefer to be sensible about it i.e. if I can find something on offer for say 1k that's only marginally inferior to a current top of the range model then I'd rather do that.

Not sure why you're not a Panasonic fan, as the quality of TVs they're producing is nothing short of outstanding, & the 50GT50 is available for half the price of your budget with a free blu ray player & 3D glasses, & is better than the TVs in your shortlist in my opinion.:

Amongst your list, Sony HX853 is the best LED lit LCD TV I ever saw. I didn't like the Samsung ES8000 as the colour saturation and motion handling wasn't as good as the Sony.

+1 for the Panasonic or the Sony.

As you can see in my signature i have the Sony.

If i were after a slightly bigger TV i would be looking at the Panasonic too without a doubt, i compared both when purchasing mine & at the end of the day the Sony only won because it was the right size for me with the room available. When i went for the demo i found the picture quality on both TV sets outstanding fed with HD content. The Samsungs you mention when i viewed them seemed to have a lot of motion issues.

 

Regards..

A/V Amp - Pioneer SC-LX78

Speakers - B&W 683 S2, 685 S2, HTM61 S2 Centre, 610 Subwoofer, Onkyo SKH-410.

TV - Calibrated 4K Panasonic TX-50AX802B

Blu-ray Players - Sony mr BDPS790, PS3, PS4.

Thanks guys, that's really useful and I'll take another look at the Panasonic.  Does anyone own or has demo'd the LG?  Would be keen to get some feedback on that one...
