Looking into a 4K TV, any recommendations?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Looking into a 4K TV, any recommendations?

For Christmas my husband and I have decided to offer ourselves a brand new 4K TV. Problem is, I'm not sure what to lookout for besides price and width. What brands are considered good or bad? What other options should I be asking for? Any electronics pros out there have anything to recommend?

Also is the PS4 Pro upgrade worth it once you've got a 4K TV?

If you want top-of-the-line stuff you should be looking at the LG OLEDs (B7A / C7 / E7P), they are the best quality TVs you can get and don't cost much more than the Samsungs etc.

For medium budgets the Sony X850E/X900E sets are very good in price and performance. If the TV is mostly used for gaming the Vizio P series 2017 could be a worthwhile alternative

If you are going for minimum budget the TCL P605/P607 are surprisingly competent TVs especially for gaming.

...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

Definitely don’t go cheap if you want to game on it. Things like HDR capabilities (number of nits, HDR10 capability) and latency (in HDR mode) matter a lot for gamers.

If you own a UHD TV the PS4 Pro is a no-brainer and well worth it!



Not LG: mine sucks.

The Sony X900E Family are some of the best TV's with gaming in mind.

What worries me the most with OLED TV's is the IR, it is VERY annoying from what i previously experienced with Plasma TV's.

I owned 2 Panasonic Mid Range Plasmas, and both of them got IR pretty easily. Never got to the point of Burn In, but i was always too distracted with the retention on the screen. 

I may buy an OLED TV in the future, but i want the IR issue to be as minimal as possible.

By IR, do you mean when stuff like the Netflix logo somehow linger on the screen even after the movie is started?

this one is simple.... all TV's support 4k, HDR and low input lag.

LOW BUDGET:
TCL P607. MSRP of $650. you can probably get it for around $500 considering deals.

MID BUDGET
LG B7 Oled MSRP $1500-$1800
Sony X900E

HIGH BUDGET
Sony A1E OLED MSRP (expensive) I

I have the LG65C7V

Incredible.

The IR problem isn't really a problem on these 2017 OLED models as far as I have experienced.  The 2017's  7 series are quite a bit better than the 6 series of 2016 so don't be tempted to go budget for a previous year model.

The LG's use the same panel throughout the model range by the way.  So the C7 has the same panel as the W7 despite being half the price , still not cheap but worth every penny imo.  They also supply the panels for other manufacturers sets.

 



I'm not really here!
