Depending on your sensitivity, you might not notice it or it might be super-annoying.
I would get a Samsung QLED only if I intended the TV for long gaming sessions.

Outside of OLED territory, there isn't that much difference between TV. Some models are brighter a bit, but most of the time it is marketing trying to push more expensive models onto people. Philips have an edge with the Ambilight technology, which really changes the perception - and with it, the IPS poor blacks don't annoy that much. AndroidTV guarantees that the smart platform will be usable longer than any other choise out there. 55PUS7394 seems like a good deal from RicherSounds right now.
What about for gaming, got an Xbox one x recently and love to get a 4k tv

Sorry for going off topic

I have someone in the house with special needs who uses Alexa and the google mini for chrome cast but was hoping this Samsung would have more functionality than the chrome cast which is limited.

I would appreciate your experience thank you.
Picture is great and it's very simple to use. Highly recommended.

Just to chime in, I'm after a 75" at the moment and was looking at these 3 from richersounds,

https://www.richersounds.ie/p-203974...view-play.aspx


https://euro.richersounds.ie/p-20395...px?swapstore=1


Anyone in the know able to say which is the best of the 3 or indeed a 75" elsewhere that's similar priced but better?

Friend has that tv, it's decent but it's not going to compare with an LG or Samsung.

Samsung OS is easiest to use, but I am not sure if ru7100 come with the smart remote. By the looks of the pictures of the LG, it is 75UK6200PLB - it won't come with the magic remote too. This Philips is a Saphi based TV (not android TV), but it isn't the lowest model in their lineup, and comes with Ambilight.

I would verify if the Samsung comes with the smart remote (https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....1TUAa2DLQL.jpg). If yes, I would go with the Sammy. Otherwise I'd get the Philips.

It is almost universally cheaper to buy in GBP than in EUR - just get a Curve app (https://www.curve.app/) and card to have good exchange rates. If you decide to sign up, let me know on PM before hand - I'll get 5 GBP referral bonus

Is the 49/50" a must? There are no OLEDs in sizes smaller than 55", and QLEDs are much worse than the 55" sizes. The 55" are typically better TV, even within the same lineup...

In this size, I'd go with a Sony, that not only will be cheaper, but comes with 100/120Hz panel - KD49XG8305BU https://www.richersounds.ie/p-203994...v-youview.aspx

I’d suggest signing up for Revolut card - been using it for many years and saved a fortune on currency exchange - they got interbank exchange rate - simply the best. Would be super handy for Amazon Black Friday shopping 😊
They give 10 euro sign up bonus and free card if using referral link (PM me if anyone needs one).

Prepaid Revolut is a thing of the past. It saved me a lot of money, but there are better options now that don't require you to send your ID god knows where.

Disagree.
Let’s look at some comparisons:

Revolut outshines Curve and is comparable to many established banks. In 2018, Revolut received a European bank license. With a license, it will continue to build upon its already impressive line of products. It has emerged as one of the top European/global challenger banks and fintechs alongside N26 and TransferWise. Revolut is one of a few companies to offer free global money transfers (TransferGo is another) at the best exchange rates possible.

Perhaps Curve will offer more in the future and become more competitive. Currently, however, Revolut costs less than Curve and offers much more. Those reasons justify choosing Revolut over Curve.

Ive been thinking of upgrading my twelve years old Samsung for a while now, but just don't seem to be able to justify it, it's full HD not UHD/4k, but I'm still getting crystal clear razor sharp image from it to this day.

Question though, are almost all tvs these days "smart"? Tbh given the choice of much prefer to buy a dumb TV, and hook my shield no to it anyway.

So I guess what I'm asking is, if anyone has any suggestions for a decent 4k tv for a sitting room that will be used solely for skyQ/Netflix and IPTV using a Nvidia shield, around the 42" size?

I'm not yet convinced that smart TVs are any better than using a firestick/shield etc.
