Looking for entry level 43-48" 4K/1080p TV

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I decided to get a TV for my room, and even though I don't have any issues with comparing desktop monitors, the amount of marketing nonsense, misuse of standards and specs and creating dozens of fake ones is just overwhelming on TV market, I don't even want to try to dive into all of this nonsense, so I need help. 

I want 43-48" inch 4K/1080p TV. There are no specific things I will do on it, just regular watching TV, movies and some sports. Sometimes I will use it for playing games, but it will be only for some relaxing games while lying in bed, for serious playing I have my desktop setup. Old PS2 is lying somewhere with Fight Night 3 that I really liked back in time so it would be nice to be able to connect archaic consoles too. 

Since prices and availability vary from country to country, here is a list of TVs inside the budget I have for this TV: https://www.morele.net/rtv/telewizory/telewizory-412/,2200.00,,,,,,,,,23160O975140.960657.746924,23217O761261.724442,23159O725673,23227O722777,23224O733741/1/

Thanks for advance for any help

Choose Philips 43pus6501. It's very good for its price.

Way outside the budget.

Not sure about the LGs (can't remember if those specific models are even the states), but that first Samsung is a nice entry level TV. It's the cheapest one that supports HDR, as far as I know (though it won't have the contrast of more panels with local dimming backlights).

How about Samsung UE49K6300? 49 inches is a bit big, but curve should compensate that, at least if it is aggressive curve, on which there is no data in specs of course...Two days on TV market and I already hate it passionately. Amount of bs is endless while amount of actual info is limited to the very minimum

Only consider Sony XBR series (and LG OLED if you have the $) like the X8003 or 8009 (43" VA & 49" IPS) instead (Rtings Review of 2016 X800D which is being replaced with the X8300E/830xE). The X800D series has much better colors (HDR & non-HDR) than similarly priced competitors, and is LED PWM Dimming or Flicker Free unlike 99% of TV's. PWM ruins motion clarity and makes some people suffer from health issues like head aches and/or eyestrain (source).

It sucks. The Samsung K3000 has slow pixel response times (ghosting), significantly worse image quality and uses motion clarity ruining PWM.

This is all way off the budget, like 50% too expensive. $650 is Poland is around 3200 PLN including VAT, I have max 2200, and thats too much anyway, I can do great things with my PC for that price. I just want TV for a secondary use and watching TV, rarely gaming, I am not looking for HDR or anything like that, this I will get for desktop display once it is available. TV can even be full HD, shouldn't really matter from 2 meters viewing distance. Just a solid 43-48" TV with basic things like Smart TV, WiFi, recording on USB etc.

Here is a new list of TVs in my reach and available in my country, if you could look at it: https://www.morele.net/rtv/telewizory/telewizory-412/,2200.00,,,,,,,,,23160O975140.960657.746924,23217O761261.724442,23159O725673,23227O722777,23224O733741/1/

Only 20 to choose from.

I see no reason to get it over the cheaper Samsung.

The Samsung has a 4k panel, a quantum dot filter over the backlight (for a wider color gamut), and HDR 10-bit input, while the Sony uses an older 1080p panel.
