    I'd go with the Samsung. The NU7100 (55) and 7400 (50) both have some great reviews - the NU7 line is regarded as the best in the price point.

    I was looking at buying my mum one (sizes I was looking at above).

    @Derblington

    Iíll pop down to curryís and check it out first hand, but iím thinking the Samsung looks the best choice.

    Thanks.

    If anyone was waiting for the C8 to drop in price it's back down to £1699 again here in blighty. They're offering a free speaker with it too and that deal runs to the end of January so sounds like the TV price will stay that price until then as well.

    Also the SK9Y soundbar is £649 and you can grab the HW-N950 now for 1199 which is 300 quid cheaper than before!

    We complete on the new house on 1st Feb so tempted to buy it beforehand then get it delivered and fitted to the wall first week of Feb!

    The C8 is excellent, so much of an improvement on my 2016 B model

    @Mrsyms1

    How old is it, and where did you buy it?

    Looking at any New Years deals before taking the plunge, and it looks as if the Sony XF7002 can be bought for £400 (£80 cheaper than the Samsung 7400).

    Reviews look decent, anyone got a Sony that can recommend?

    Hate the stand though, but I think you can get decent replacements for a reasonable price.

    Oh, then yeah let Currys take care of it. That's definitely your first port of call IMO, regardless of whether you have a warranty. Under EU regulations, you're still well under the time when the item should be working correctly, and Currys need to sort it out.

    I think if you keep on at them then LG will probably come and replace the panel. I know people on the AVForums have got them out to replace the panel for lesser problems than banding on 30% of the screen.

    Have they asked for pictures of the issue or have you just described it to them? Make sure you haven't made it sound like burn in - that might be why they're saying "it's normal".

    That being said, they recently lost a few small claims from people with burn in, so the law seems to think the "burn in is the fault of the consumer" argument doesn't stand up. For £1199 I'd be willing to go all the way to court, myself.

    Want to share the pictures?

    Also have you run that pixel refresher thing? If it isn't burn in it might clear it up. I've heard some instances of banding disappearing over time too.

    Of course it could be burn out that just happens to look like vertical bands

    The new generation of LG OLEDs looks excellent for gamers: 15ms input lag, VRR support, more calibration options in game modes, and increased frequency BFI for flicker-free blur reduction.

    @Mrsyms1 Good stuff! Makes LG look even worse given the fact there actually was a problem.

    @Dougs Yeah, I got my LG from there. Won't even bother trying to go to LG if anything happens with it.

    Went with the NU7400 in the end. It's siting in the box still though until I paint the living room and lay the floor. It's my motivation to get it done quickly. :)

    Went with John Lewis as well. Best price plus 5 year guarantee.

    @robc84 Would really appreciate if you could let me know what you think of the NU7400 as I'm looking at exactly the same tv myself.

    Godspeed with the painting and flooring !

    Of course. Realistically, it will probably be a few weeks though :)

    Well, I'm no expert when it comes to painting, and I tend to get paint in plenty of places other than the wall. So I don't want to risk getting my new set dirty so it is staying safely in the box for now where I can't ruin it :)

    Anyone got a good suggestion for the cheaper range of TVs? Looking for about 40" and around £400. Seems to be a lot around at that price point, but hard for me to tell them apart. Obviously not expecting the quality of a premium screen, but that's the budget I have and I'm upgrading on a 32" Bush TV I bought in 2010 for £180 so yeh, I think it's been long enough that I can get something a lot better.

    @imamazed

    I 'only' paid £479 for my 50" and I think it's a mid range tv. I'd say you'd be able to get a decent 43" for £400.

    I think the 43" Samsung NU7400 is around £400. I'm no TV expert, but I'll give my impressions when I eventually get it set up!
