    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    I've been using a 19" Samsung (not sure of the model number) since 2008. It was 'HD-Ready' at the time, but that was a waste of space, since I can't get the HD Freeview channels. I watch TV very little these days, so it mostly sits unused: F1, any program about space, and the new Robot Wars series are the only times it gets turned on. The picture quality was good at the time, but doesn't look so great compared to the latest TV's; the sound quality is good though. Since I mainly use my PC monitor for watching DVD's and stuff on youtube, I have no reason to get an upgrade.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    A 10 year old, 26" Samsung that is HD Ready (720p). It is coupled to a Humax HDR-Fox T2 (5 years old) for Freeview HD and recording.

    Still works and does the job, but I am thinking about replacing it. I don't need a big TV, but if it is going to be another 10 years, then the smallest good 4k TV that I could see is 40".

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    8 year old 42" Samsung Plasma, cheapy and never the greatest screen. Has a line down it now. Wish TVs weren't so full of 'Smart apps' and you could still get a decent plasma.

    Thinking of a Sony 55x8507c as a replacement. At least it will run Kodi, keeping it useful when they stop update in a couple of years time.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    I have a 6 year old Panasonic 55" Plasma. I couldn't afford a VT at the time, so I went with the GT. Never had any problem with burnin. If I were to replace it, I would only go OLED. LCD displays just can't handle high motion or blacks.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    24" JVC LT-24DK3BJ, HD ready from 2011.
    it displays a picture, colours are terrible, sound gets distorted at medium volume, has an annoying blue light just below the screen.

    did have a 32" DGM before that, but the speakers developed a high pitched buzz, then went a bit smokey.


    last TV I helped mate buy, was a Panasonic 50" CX802b for £750. early this year. Mate uses headphones on it too. while i'm on a full ATMOS/DTS-X setup via a Denon 2200W on a tiny 24".
    seems a funny way around doesn't it

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    Toshiba 46" LED full HD 3d smart TV. Wall mounted (that took some exceptionally big holes in the wall and wall plugs).

    The smart features have declined over the years and I now don't use them, not even sure if Youtube is still working. There is a browser though. It also does home streaming (never tried this, not sure how to work it - DNLA or something?) and supports MKV on USB sticks.

    Never tried the 3D features but did buy an active headset in a moment of madness years ago (it didn't come with one).

    Great size for my largish room, everything is in the ocular sweet spot, don't think I'll really need bigger at this res. Good picture, probably not a patch on OLED or decent Plasma but better than most LCD / LED tv I see. Some backlight bleed (which seems to be getting worse? Not sure if that's possible) and the settings are confusing and the saturation seems high on some sources. Also only seems to do 50hz over HDMI, no 60hz

    Just got a Sky sub and box and the picture seems to have improved as compared to the built in HD DTV and Satellite decoders, not sure why...

    I love it though, best TV I've owned and although it hasn't seen much use I'll likely keep it until more cost effective 4k sources become a real thing (as well as OLED I think). 46TL968B model.

    Every time I had to use the TV guide (with the built in tuners) I have to accept a license from MediaGuide and wait around 20 seconds. Would have preferred proper freeview HD and freesat HD support but it's close. Paid full price in a Richer Sounds for it (mug I know) but they did replace the original which had around 3 off/dead pixels so overall very happy.

    TV or PC? Both I say, for now at least.

    Sony Bravia KDL-40W2000

    It's just hit it's 10-year birthday - but back in the day, was only decent 1080 you could pick up for £1500.
    I keep on meaning to replace it, but.. I've become attached to the little energy guzzler.
    It used to be part of a home cinema setup, but then I redecorated and.. well the picture is still "acceptale", but the speakers are wonderful and I've got a shield to be the 'smart' bit for now.. and and..
    Well first I was going to replace it with a Samsung 1080.. then 4k.. then HDR.. then the Sony I fancied with Android TV had a #### CPU and sound.. and and and...
    Bluntly, I've become sentimental for my little work-horse. I know I could pick up something in the supermarket that's notionally "better" in some way - but I'd feel guilty.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    Panasonic TX-50CX802B, which cost me £699 this May (after cash4goals promotion). Superb TV for the money and don't regret spending that amount one bit. Was £1700-1800 when launched last summer apparently so I think I got a real bargain.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    The people i live with have some sort of ordinary 32-38" (i think) HD Samsung TV.

    Myself, it's a rare month in which i'd watch more than a couple of hours of TV. The closest i come to standard TV viewing is generally taken up by a selection of youtube channels i follow nowadays, otherwise i'm on the internet/PC video/PC work/gaming nowadays
