However, for me, having seen it, the screen which hasw a see through plastic "fringe" all the way around it looks pants. There seem to be several Samsung models in the 6000 numbered series which seem similar but without that. John Lewis had 2 side by side - a 6500series and a 6710, both 46" and I couldn't see any pic difference. One was a black case, the other white, with a slightly different design. Both seemed to have the features of the 6800 range! Baffling.

Picked up a 40" Toshiba LED from Argos of all places for £299 a couple of weeks back. It was also available from their eBay as a "refurb" for £279 - now £249

So far i am pleasantly surprised. I use it for Sky+HD, watch MKVs from USB as i haven't chosen a network media player (none match up to XBMC on a PC in the lounge for the 60" Plasma and 90" 1080p projector).

It's only listed as being 50Hz, and relatively basica - plus it's 10cm thick at the widest point to the bottom of the unit.

But so far so good - great bedroom TV. Bought a wall bracket for under a tenner on eBay - one with mounting holes on the bracket at least 600mm wide so it would go into the uprights on a stud/partition wall

Very bright, clear and lifelike picture. Would happily buy another one.

The Samsung numbering system is confusing in that in the 6 series range there seems to be so many different models
I was looking at the 6320, 6400, 6500 and 6670 40" models. There doesn't appear to be a massive difference between any of them, apart from the clear motion rate

Anyone have any experience of the LG 39LN575V?
Seems a high spec and good price

This popped up on my news feed and seemed too good to be true:

Is that not the same as buying an Alba or similar brand, you get what you pay for?

I've not heard of Kogan but people used to turn their noses up at Samsungs/LGs cause they were cheaper than Sony/Panasonic. It might turn out to be a decent TV.

Well according to the article their panels are Samsung, so how bad can they be?

Personally I wouldn't be going for 4k yet purely because there isn't enough material to play on it, but if prices are this low already I won't have to break the bank when I do decide to switch.

I am looking for a 39-40" LCD TV (upgrading from a Sony KDL32D3000 which was 32" so with reduced sized bevels this increase in size shouldnt upset my wife who doesnt want a massive TV in the corner of the room), I would like it to be internet connected and smart but dont need it to be 3D but will have it like that if not much more on price and certainly dont need 4K

What sort of price am I looking at for one with good motion speed and no blurring on movies and gaming on PS3 and soon to be PS4?

It depends on the size of your lounge obviously, but anything less than 42" is a little small. I've just bought a 50" and part of me wishes I'd gone for a 55"

Sorry but I am looking to upgrade from a 32" to a 39-40" TV, I was asking about price and not size

No need to apologise. I was simply saying is all. I've never met anyone regret buying a big TV, but I know of plenty who wish they'd gone one size bigger. Might be time to trade in the wife and get a bigger TV.

But there is a minimum distance you need to be away from a TV before it becomes uncomfortable and also before you can see the pixels

I do however think a living room looks rather silly when you walk in and all you can see is a massive screen, there is a house on our road and their TV fills one wall near enough. Home cinema rooms yes but not in the living room.

I upgraded my 32" to a 42" in my last house and the 42" looked absolutely huge.. But you soon adjust. Went from 42" to 50" simply because the bezel was so big on my old 42", the 50" really wasn't much of an increase size wise.

My wife whinged like crazy at the 50" for the first few weeks... Now she's accepted it!

What would you say with a near 15 foot viewing distance then?

We're buying a new build, still being completed now, but an obvious justification for a new TV. Am looking at 55 inch. Don't think it'll be too big?
