Still have my 42" Panny plasma going strong. It's only 720p but I've no reason to change it (paid £800 for it, I think 9 years ago?).

I wish someone just made a good OLED 1080p TV that was affordable. I have no interested in 4k, 1080p is fine especially if your TV is under a certain size. Also having spent £1000s on DVDs and then Blurays, there's no way I'm getting into ultra HD Bluray, especially when so much of the content is actually upscaled.

I should think based on the small scale they'd need produce them for the demand they'd end up costing more than a 4k screen.

I grudge it as well.

The last 2 TV's I've bought for myself and my Mother were refurbs off ebay.

The seller has great feedback and gave an accurate description of the TV.
The one I bought had a surface scratch on the screen from the polystyrene, it's very noticeable when the TV is off.

You don't see it at all when it's on and I saved a packet.
I'm eyeing up a 65" just now off them.

Non OLED ones are a lot cheaper nowadays.

There is this odd OLED at 869 - 55" it's an LG panel but there are not many reviews

Avforums looked and are meant to be relooking with different settings

Affiliated Link

Expecting some deals before world cup or after England go crashing out....

For anyone looking to buy at the moment the Curry’s/PC World promotion has got to be worth a punt?

Buy 55” or over and there is a one in twenty chance of getting your money back.

Honestly if you have a 1080p panel now and can’t afford oled, I’d wait.

It's a pretty average TV. It won't look much, if any, better than your current TV unless you're watching 4K content from a few feet away. Any more than that and you don't get the benefit of the extra resolution and I'd highly doubt it has the brightness to do HDR to any real effect.

I wouldn't get tooo hung up on the 10 bit thing, there's plenty of decent TV's that are way better, but more expensive, that are 8 bit +2

There was a recent video on linus tech tips about those TCL displays. I think the general consensus was you get what you pay for.
