Hi sagpatel,

There exists a non-trivial probability of a burn-in, but its very low. Tata Sky logo is dim compared to say Airtel and it'll take anywhere from 12000-15000 hours of cumulative viewing to notice any degradation. [rting.com study]

If you vary your content among TV, Gaming, Streaming - a typical use case with medium to medium-high backlight, your oled should last a very long time. B/C9 comes with especially large pixels to address this specific issue.

So go for the biggest/cheapest LG OLED TV you can find and enjoy.

I am not a gamer, content will be TV, streaming or playing content through USB. i was offered price of 1.25L for B9 and 1.4L for C9 at croma with just a casual talk and feel they will reduce further for sure, will also check at Kohinoor as I feel Kohinoor gives best prices among all the stores as per my previous observation/experience.

Does anybody here own a Kodak tv?
The Amazon Prime app that is available is difficult to use. Some menu like the search button etc is not accessible.
Also Netflix never loads. Any solution?

Question on SideLoaded Apps:
Is there an easy way to close the Side Loaded Apps?
I managed to Sideload Amazon Music App on the Sony X8000G Android TV. Able to launch it easily using the SideLoad Launcher App as well. Now when I use the Back button and exit out of the app, the Music still keeps playing and I have to goto Settings and then "Force Stop" the App. Kindly guide if there are easier ways to close/cleanly exit a SideLoaded App.

UPDATE
Bought the Sony x900F from Croma for 99995 and additional 14k for 3 years extended warranty from Croma.

This was an open box that had run for about 3-4 months.

Used the Sony Secret menu to find the no of hours it had been used for . It had about 1200 hours of use time which seemed reasonable to be . The packed piece at Reliance Aundh was about 1.54 lakhs.

We saved a cool 50 K and got an additional warranty from Croma.

My 2017 model Sony X70E is not latching on to the wifi during start, anymore. The LG has no such issue. I get a message that the TV is not connected to the internet. Have to switch off and restart (the wifi and TV are on stand by mode always)

My 12 yr old Onida TV finally started showing signs of ageing and was looking for a replacement. I saved myself the trouble of researching and decided to piggyback on your review and went ahead with the purchase of 49 inch Sony 7002G Linux OS from Reliance Digital world. As expected the price at Sony outlet was way higher and Croma was marginally higher. Since there was Rs 2,500/- cashback offer at Reliance using a specific credit card, went ahead and brought the TV. Also purchased 2 yrs extended warranty from Reliance ResQ.
After a couple of weeks of usage of the new Sony TV, I tried connecting the TV to my Sony Home theatre DVD player using the HDMI cable in order to use the Home theatre speakers for a better sound experience. But the sound from the TV did not move to the Home theatre speakers. When I checked with the Reliance ResQ technician he ran through some options on the TV settings but failed to fire up the Home theatre speakers and finally gave up saying its not compatible.

Any inputs as to what could be the problem?

You might have to use additional optical audio out cable from the TV to the HT.

Use the optical out on TV to connect to the HT. On the TV audio menu change speakers to external. On the HT, change input to optical.

How good are Pai Electronics?
I am in the market for a new 55" 4K LED TV, which will in the living room and run ~1 hour per day.



Pai is offering Sony 70G 55" for 74k incl. 2 year extended warranty!
While Reliance Digital is charging 25k for 3 year warranty!
Unilet is charging 7.3k for 2 year extended warranty!


Such differences in the extended warranty packs!?


LG SM81000
Reliance: 70K+25k(for 3yr extended warranty)
Pai: 75K (with 2 yr extended warranty included!)


Any suggestions would be welcome

After close to 5 years of service our Panasonic panel gave away - horizontal lines started appearing. Went and got a new Sony KD65X8000G 4K UHD LED TV. Compared to the previous Panasonic, this one looks massive in the living room.
