    When I checked out the Veon tv's at The Warehouse when I was shopping around, I noped out of there quick. Horrible panels on all models they had displayed. The budget Sony next to them blew them away.
    I owned a 49" for less then a day and returned it because of really bad fuzzy background. Not sure if they were all like that or not.

    The TV's are always going to be tuned to sell the more expensive models. The konkas at Harvey's are a perfect example of this. There's was an LG next to a 55" konkas which I own, I tuned both tv settings to nearly identical settings as much as I could and the konkas looks just as good

    Went to look at some Veons again today

    They don’t do themselves any favours

    Advertised as 4K tvs, plays what looks like 480p DVD movie on it

    Never understood that. And places like Smith city do the same.

    Is it worth replacing my HDMI cables now that I am 4k? I am on the low end PBtech models

    As long as they are "high speed" then they should be fine
    Otherwise you're looking for HDMI cable with at least 18gbps of bandwidth

    The older cables may only do 4 @ 30hz, the "high speed" ones do 4k 60hz with HDR
    You can test this yourself, try to play 4k 60hz and/or HDR content through the new screen and check the TV's input data to see what is passing through to the TV

    That's probably the only difference

    My 4k TV runs at 60hz on an old hdmi cable. Like cat5/6, there is quite a bit of headroom and not huge differences in the physical cable apart from the structure of the cable to protect it from interference etc. At least from what I could tell in my research. As with all digital stuff though..if it works, it works.

    Wire gauge is a factor for long runs. The 10m High-Speed cable I have to get 4k 60Hz on my monitor is quite a chunky beast of a thing.

    I think I may tidy up and replace the super long ones with specific length ones in the future.
