    Samsungs are just shit. I'm not normally one for brand loyalty (or whatever the alternative is) but I've had two Samsung TVs and they've both been shit

    I would also say - and I have a BIG living room - a 55" OLED with the sharpness it has made me forget being a size queen. Couldn't afford the 65" C9 sadly

    This hisense seems OK... slight mark on the screen but I'm hoping it's just some residue. Two updates to install so far. lol

    Wow... fair play, the picture on that is fucking amazing compared to my old set. I'm actually tempted to grab the 55" version next time there's some sort of a deal.

    My third samsung in a row... fairly happy!

    Do all samsung models have ads? I don't recall seeing any. Although not sure I use the full home screen. I just switch between xbox one, netflix, now tv and iplayer using the home bar.

    @ibenam Why Samsung ? The last 2 I've had have been crap and supposedly top of their range. They're way over priced. More than happy with my Sony for half the price.

    Just a tip for owners of 4K/hdr sets - try the BBC iPlayer and watch the latest Attenborough doc series streaming in UHD (HLG/HDR). Some moments of sheer Antarctic beauty - makes OLED shine - and next week should be even more impressive with Asian locations.

    Anyone got any experience of Philips Tv's? I'm looking for a 50" to replace my ageing Plasma and they get decent reviews.

    Anywhere worth looking online for calibration settings?

    This screen is good, but the colours are waaaaay off out of the box.

    THX calibration tool on a BluRay / DVD used to be the way but now rtings.com saves you that long walk to the dump where you threw out all your physical media five years ago

    Y u slagging Samsung, I thought their TVs had a rep for being always a solid choice?

    I know a lot of people with Samsung TVs who are very happy with them.

    Also Rodger Fontgeeksogood who has had two Samsungs, one of which developed power problems (the loud clicking noises randomly when on standby, GREAT if you have it in the bedroom, and one which the network port died).

    Garbage

    Rodger Racing_Fans first HDTV was an LG, and although it was lush when I first got it, it developed annoying screen flicker when first turned on after the first couple of years.

    Panasonic were the dons in the early days of HDTVs.

    I loved my Panasonic plasma. That was in 2009. I am on my 3rd tv since then. The panny died, then I moved continents twice and didnt take the tv with me. Should be more stable now, so my tv should last a few more years!

    Next upgrade is a projector most likely anyway.

    My ks8000 was the dogs nuts initially. 2 replacement screens later I gave up with it. I had a Q9fn briefly but that had dse so returned it. Currently have a Sony which was half the price and has no issues.

    I've got a Panasonic OLED and it's boner inducing.

    My only real problem with it is that it has, basically, the same remote as the wide-screen CRT behemoth I had like 15 years ago. If you buy a premium TV, you should get premium all the way.

    My dad's Samsung qled comes with two remotes, a space age 'basic function' remote and a more traditional, big ol' remote.

    Shit, just saw that LG is rolling out firm ware upgrades to their 2019 OLED tvs to add G-sync support. I think I heard about it before, but that is pretty cool!

    Seems like it will also support 120hz at 1440p.

    I'm rather partial to Panny's too. I'm going to be upgrading my Panny Plasma next year after almost 10 wonderful years of usage. Thinking of going for this model:-
