    LG OLED55B9. I've pretty much stopped going to the cinema since I've bought it.

    LG 55" 4K Nanocell.
    It was only £600 and does everything it's supposed to.

    Toshiba 37" 720p TV, it's about 10 years old. We do need a bigger one though, because our living room is quite big. My brother had a 55" TV in his bedroom, which was overkill for the size of the room...

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    42" Panny Plasma's in our house, one a 768P monitor panel the other a G series 1080p. Both have the Sky logo burnt in on them due to the wife kids pausing the Sky box for hours on end. Wish one would die so I could replace with a 4K OLED but both of them have only failed once & I've managed to repair them myself. Panny plasma's seem to be pretty much bullet proof

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    One of the first 1080P LG televisions i think it is, 42" LH5000,,,,, and it is going to recycling soon, not to be replaced before television and what you can get and what you pay for it get revolutionized.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    Panasonic 42inch Plasma. I have looked at OLED however I feel that not enough content exists for it to be worth it yet. I am waiting for 8k tv to be out to reduce the price of 4K. Sky charging extra for HD in 2020 is stupid IMHO.

    4.5 year old 1080p LG. Will replace when it expires and won't spend a lot, not enough content worth watching to justify spending a lot.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    Samsung 48", curved (because it was cheaper than flat on sale), 4K LED, $500 in Q3 2016. Pretty happy with it, and the value. The picture quality is quite good for the price. Only downside was the sound quality, but I picked up a soundbar to address that.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    Panasonic GT30 47" (plasma). It's been great ! Used for kids consoles, movie night, daily grind of daytime cr@p, mummy series & hours of CBBC.

    I get an itch for a panny or LG OLED but never seem to want to, I'll never use the 4k unless it's a game & the standard TV content is either standard or HD.

    I guess the same old expression "if it ain't broke" keeps me going on with this old tech !

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    a 42" seiki something, good for the money except the firmware has a memory leak which was never fixed, so the OSD can take 5 minutes to appear after the TV has been on for a hour or 2

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    It's a 40-something inch Samsung, and I'll somewhat reluctantly replace it when it dies, and is unrepairable.

    As for features, for my needs, it utterly outclasses any and all currently available TV ..... by miles. Why? It has Scart and I need them. Manufacturers can stick their 4K, and fancy curves and the rest of the alphabet soup, but gimme my flipping Scart socket. Until then, no way will I willingly upgrade.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    No sure the model but an early 55" LG 4k tv. Its basically on of the last 3D Tv's produced by LG. Its not HDR but does have HDMI 2.0 (some early models didn't).

    I mostly bought it for its 3D performance, the passive 3D is better and then up it to a UHD panel for 1080p 3D and its perfect.

    I do believe one of the things which killed 3D tvs was the amount of active shutter sets and the cost of glasses (nevermind weight and batteries).

    Seems there is no 3D Tv's to replace it so I will be running it for a long time.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    Sony 43" 4K HDR TV I use as a monitor, and up until a few weeks ago, was using all wrong (I've had it nearly 2 years).

    When I bought it I asked the dude "does this do 60hz HDR, and will it do 4:4:4 ?" and he's like "yeah it'll do it np". Cut to getting it home and the best I can get is 4:2:0! And if I want HDR I have to turn it down to 30hz. Not impressed.

    Well a few weeks back just before Christmas I accidentally ended up in this weird menu and it said "enable hi-speed mode for this port" and voila...4:4:4 HDR 60hz. Turns out you need to turn it on :/

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    I got myself LG 65" SIGNATURE OLED G8 4K TV
    My favorite pass time is movies, and after my plasma TV died, going to LCD was disappointing.
    So, I was eyeing this OLED TV and it is worth every penny. The picture is gorgeous, comes with integrated Dolby Atmos sound (including subwoofer like speakers). It is my most used device after my laptop.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.
