    And is it living up to expectations, or is an upgrade in the offing?

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    Samsung 32" 1080p

    Hardly ever used as we have an Optoma 1080p projector with 92" screen and a bespoke built surround sound setup

    Doubt a new tv will happen too used to projector now

    Same.

    Will buy another when they settle on a format. Seem hardly many 4k signals, hell some streaming sites are just 720p. Not sure what's going on with HDODR de R de R or whatever it is.

    Mind you, not really kept up so not sure the state of play.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    Just replaced a Panny (42") that went wrong with a cheapy (seems great for the money) HISENSE H50B7100UK 4k HDR 50" until I get some more funds for another Panny.

    Old samsung 40" 1080p. Not used that much as everyone just watches stuff on tablets/phones/pcs/chromebooks. No one sits down in front of the tv to watch stuff these days.

    Virgin here and we can get 4k but most of it is upscaled 1080p. Yup streaming is rubbish in many many ways with crappy 720p streams which is why we don't watch much. HDR IS available on Virgin but nothing that plays HDR back here yet

    We have got the projector and surround sound and it does mean we sit down and watch stuff. But we choose what we watch more carefully

    Wife has some '4000' model of Samsung curved 50", as she does still sit down to watch things on TV.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    We've got a 65" Samsung Q9F thing, HDR1500, QLED panel, 4K resolution, it's the whole job. Got a smashing deal on it when the World Cup was on, at about £1700 with a soundbar, down from £2700 combined MSRP.

    It does everything we want, upscales 720p and 1080p content perfectly well, is buttery smooth when whooshing through the menus, has all the apps you need.

    Incredibly happy with the purchase.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    Still using a Pioneer Kuro from 2008, was thinking of upgrading to an OLED but after doing some research and seeing all the problems with screen burn also processors overheating causing damage to the panel I'm not so sure now.
    I have no screen burn on my plasma after 12 years so I might be ok but I do watch a lot of BBC news and Sky with their overly bright Logo's and banners at the bottom.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    LG 55" B6 4k OLED purchased 2017 on a deal.

    Hands down OLED is the way to go the picture is just stunning with deep blacks and vibrant colours.
    Like 3D HDR can look amazing but also very average it needs to be implemented correctly.
    4k resolution is hardly worth it at 55" screen size you really need 65"+
    8k is years aways I mean Sky still charge extra for HD which is laughable!
    I won't be changing for a while yet.

    Re: QOTW: Which TV do you own?

    2 Panasonic TVs in our house now, one 43" 4K HDR LED (FX something) and now a 40" 4K HDR LED (GX something). Only got the second one because after using the first with 4K content the second screen seemed blurry (a freebie 32" LG HD we got with SKY years ago), happy with both. Also aside from a good picture, got to admit the built in speakers on the GX model are actually quite good compared to a lot of TVs I've had in the past. GX cost £340 so not a bad price to pay for an upgrade to 4K.
