Finally bought X90H after all hours spent on online and offline. Thanks a lot for your inputs/suggestions which really helped me close the deal. I was given CH-510 Headset as a freebie. Opted for Reliance Insurance for 3 years (1+3) which gives 80% amount will be returned in case of any fault in 2nd year onwards. Closed the deal with less than 100K. Now awaiting for the delivery followed by the installation. I'll post my initial impressions soon after.

That is a fairly comprehensive list.

Regarding all the Samsungs which you have selected-'They are all the same'.

The TUE60 and the TU8000 are exactly the same. The TUE60 is an online only model. The TU8570 only offers extra USB and HDMI ports over the TU8000. Watch these videos to get an idea of what I am saying. They are in Hindi-





So among the Samsungs, it is better to save your money and get the TUE60 from Amazon at 95k.

The LG 7290 is great VFM at 83k but it is an IPS panel. So unless your use case involves watching TV in a lot of sunlight with multiple people watching TV from various off centre angles, I would prefer a VA panel.

There isn't much to choose in terms of picture quality between the last year's UM series and this year's UN series. The extra money isn't worth it.

The Sonys are definitely the pick of the lot but both of them are priced higher than the other LGs and the Samsungs. You can also check out the Sony 7400H but its reviews aren't widely available and you can't use Bluetooth to connect other sound output devices.

My suggestion would be getting one of them Sonys if you wanna go all out or else get the LG UM7290PTD for the sheer VFM it offers. The TUE60 offers a nice middle ground IMO.

But whatever be your decision, avoid paying anything extra for the TU8000 or the TU8570 over the TUE60 unless you are averse to buying a TV online.

I visited a couple of showrooms a while back. Samsung is offering 3 year warranty for its TV' s and for their QLED ones an additional 10 year no screen burn in warranty , until end of this month. I don't see this offer on the TUE60 page on amazon. If i buy online, i think i wont be getting this extra 2 year warranty on the panel.

So these are the models i need to pick one -

Samsung 65Q60T - 1,70,590/-
Samsung 65TU8000 -1,08,000/-
Samsung 65TU8570 - 1,16,000/-
LG 65UN7300 - 96,000/-

But when i checked reviews on TU8570 , it seems there are many reports of light bleeding on that model.



Is The QLED model Q60T worth spending the extra? Or should i go with TU8000 with extra 2 year warranty. Or maybe consider LG 65UN7300 with just one year warranty.

The Q60T is technically a better TV but not worth 60k more than TU8000.

https://www.rtings.com/tv/tools/comp...8000/1817/9019

If you are willing to spend that much, go for the Sony X9000H. It is much much superior than the Q60T and still superior than the Q70T. The X9000H has local dimming which will improve the viewing experience.

I would personally suggest the TU8000 at the budget end and the X9000H if you wanna go all out.

Another school of thought-

If you do decide to go for the X9000H and spend 1.6L, you may also be able to get 75 inch models of the entry level 4k TVs. As they say, you should buy a TV of a certain size as long as it fits.

I would personally prefer a bigger sized TV even if slightly inferior.

To add to the above post, the LGUN7300 70 inch can be had for 1.1L-1.2L. The LGs of 50,60 and 70 inch use a VA panel. I would definitely prefer the 70 inch LG with a VA panel over the 65 inch TU8000.

At around 1.5L-1.6L, you can get the 75 inch LG-UM7600.

If you have made up your mind to get a new TV then nothing better than OLED, and LG is best value for money

The deal seems good, hope you’ve checked out atleast 10-12 electronic shops for their quotes to compare

Also, when I had checked last LG was offering standard warranty of 1 year and, free extended 1 year warranty if purchased from LG authorised sales store so, you get a total of 2 years warranty on your TV

Also, very important to pl check with Vijay sales what are the terms and conditions of the extended warranty offered, as in what all is covered and what is not, and also try to negotiate further on the Vijay Sales in-house extended warranty if possible

And finally, once it comes home watch this on your new TV



And thank yourself for purchasing an OLED and let your family enjoy the deepest blacks possible on any TV in the world today

So they don't have the 65TU8000 in stock. So I have settled for LG 65UN8000PTA for 109000/-. Will get delivery tomorrow.

I saw it going for 2.09 lakhs on Amazon not very long ago. Push them to match the price.

But in my opinion, you can get the Sony A8H at that price. Unless you are a hardcore gamer, that is a much better television compared to the CX anyday.

Default Re: The TV Thread - LCD, LED etc.

Guys,

Seems like my 4.5 year old Samsung LED TV has given up. The Samsung technician tried replacing the power supply/board but that did not help. So, most probably I have to buy a new one. My current TV is 48 inch and it seems big enough for my living area. However, I am planning to get a 55 inch one. Can you suggest a few names to help with my research?

My usage is 99% movies and TV shows on various OTT channels. I have a 5.1 setup as well but I am expecting all TVs nowadays come with HDMI ARC etc.

Also, my TV runs for really long hours, as someone in the family keeps watching something. So, longevity and warranty is a major requirement along with picture quality.
Also, in most cases, my room is dimly lit or dark, while watching TV.should I go for IPS or VA Panel based on my usage?
My current TV panel is 120 Hz, so I am guessing I will need a similar panel or better.
I wanted to try the Sony ones for a change. However, it seems most of their TVs are coming with 50 Hz Panel.

This might be controversial but today I was at Croma with a friend and we both seem to agree that some of the latest 4K tv's with their stock footage running seemed 'un-natural'. I mean everything was too nice and bright and it almost seemed like animation(?). Anyone else feel this way?

If you would like Dolby Atmos, check out Sony 55X8000H.
If you are okay with Dolby DTS, check out Sony 55X7500H.
Both are 4K Android smart TVs. And there is a price difference of ₹10,000 between them with 7500 being the cheaper option.
H series is 2020 model year. G = 2019.

Vijay Sales exchanged my 4 year old Sony for ₹4000 while Croma offered 2000.
At the time I bought it (Dusshera sales) Sony had an offer - 1 year manufacturers warranty & 2nd year only panel warranty.

I preferred Sony as it is an Android Smart 4K TV & I don’t need a separate 4K fire stick to watch OTT platforms.
