    Sharp 40aj6ke 40" 4k HDR @Tesco for £199.

    Looking for a kids bedroom TV for gaming etc. Any good? Not expecting much but for that purpose might be ok?

    I think more than anything you'd need to check how it handles motion / what sort of input lag it has... but for £200 if it's shit you could just use it as a fancy photo screensaver device. :D

    Hehe- yeah the motion might be the sticking point. Box mentions 'motion 400' but different manufacturers twaddle is giving me a headache. Seems to be one of those box shifters models with no reviews and hard to know if panel appears elsewhere...

    I've lost my bottle and decided to rearrange the delivery of the B9 to my home address this Friday instead (as I'll be in all afternoon). I still think the Swifty would have done me proud though ;)

    I went on a run around Nottingham yesterday (RS, Currys etc) and the car packing was worse than IKEA. Laid flat, forced in at angles, unpacking in the car park.... incredible how people get so desperate to get the £1000+ TV home they potentially fuck it up compared to £25 delivery.....

    In the end went for a Samsung 43" 4K HDR RU7020 for the teen. Should be a step up from his 23" 720p Toshiba..

    TV arrived. Anything in particular I should do to make sure it's all working properly? Are dead pixels still a thing?

    With 4K displays, pixels are so small I don't know if you can see dead/stuck pixels.

    You definitely want to do some uniformity checking. When I got my Samsung it got damaged in transit or something so there was a really dim spot on the edge so I had it replaced as it seemed like one of the LED backlights had failed.

    Dead pixels tend to crop up in groups too, and once you’ve seen them once you’ll never be able to fully put them out of your mind so best to get hunting now when you still have a chance to return it.

    There are various tests you can do to check for any bleeding at the edge etc but I think unless it's something you notice when watching stuff, I wouldn't bother. It's a minefield. If you want to get stuck in though, check out the C9 owners thread at AV Forums - https://www.avforums.com/threads/lg-oled-c9-owners-and-discussion-thread.2227517/

    Modern test patterns are a good way to make you notice a hardware fault that you hadn't seen before, and now can't unsee, and aren't considered a manufacturing defect so there's nothing you can do about it

    Was about to cut my OLED losses and go for the 49-inch Samsung QLED, but then I read this:

    https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/lgs-48-inch-oleds-are-coming-in-2020

    Guess I'd better wait a year.

    You probably won't have to. New models are usually announced at CES in January and ship in spring.

    Actually, based on the existing naming convention, the new Xbox will be called the Xbox 360

    Banding and tint are some of the more common complaints you’ll find with OLEDs.

    I guess the compression banding/macroblocking seen with some streamers might be highlighted on OLED. Last night's War of the Worlds looked shite on iPlayer. I know the b8s were more susceptible but the source quality is more significant. Seven Worlds looks fantastic but is streamed in UHD HLG.

    Tempted by the Panasonic GX800 50-inch 4K TV
    £320 for cyber-Monday.

    I took a look at the space where the current TV sits, and I'm not sure that corner of the lounge would support anything bigger than a 50" screen

    I'd pretty much decided to buy a C9 after Christmas but that sounds like a pretty great TV for the price. Where you seeing it for that much?

    I think he means £320 off!, so £579 final price.

    Yeah - that's a helluva price for 40" nevermind 50" as quoted.

    Ah! Well RS has that for £20 more but that 6 year warranty is sweet.
