    Pick one if these for me peeps. Or anything else in a similar category. Leaning towards the Samsung UA75 because I don't think it could be that bad. . Using lots of HD content Netflix/Youtube/XBoneS/4K bluray/DVB-T.

    Looked at QLEDs?

    Sony or bust. The 8500F clear winner.

    Threw the 8500F in the middle there to see if it would come up as preference. I wasn't looking at QLED, I'll have a quick browse.

    I have a QLED in the workshop at the moment. Shop stock. Allegedly not turning on but I haven't faulted it yet. Without getting overly technical, the picture quality is amazing. Its playing little demo clips on a loop, which must be stored in the one connect box's memory. I assume its probably in 4k, it looks amazing though.

    Would this,

    Be preferable over the X8500f? How well do Netflix and YouTube Apps work? Android Vs SamsungOS? LG WebOs was excellent.

    If I'm being brutally honest, I don't know how well they compare to each other in terms of specs. On a personal level though, I've had enough problems with Sony's android OS to not recommend them at all. Having said that, the most problematic ones are probably a few models back now, but its put me off ever buying one. I very rarely have software related issues with either Samsung or LG. If I had to rank a top 3, in terms of reliability, after sales support, picture quality, and specs, it would be a fairly close race between Panasonic, Samsung and LG.

    Each to their own though.

    Whatever you do, don't use any android VPN apps. I feel like android's VPN on the Sony TVs might've been the cause of one of my TV's mainboards getting fried a few years back. Got it fixed fortunately but the colours haven't been quite the same since.

    edit: it started out as this issue until, instead of rebooting the tv just flashed red 5 times.

    I've used ExpressVPN a couple of times to get US Netflix on my Sony 9000E. It's worked but it's a bit of a mess. Requires restarts and turning the app on and off.

    Again, be careful if it reboots the TV. Could evolve into something more.

    I did notice when I used it and rebooted the TV it would do a cold boot (Android TV loading screen). Haven't used it in months and have no issues. Guess I got lucky.
