    Help with buying a new TV!?!

    Honestly havenít brought a new TV in about 5 years and am out of the loop when it comes to what to look for or what to avoid.

    What would be the best option out of these 3:

    1. https://www.jbhifi.co.nz/sony/sony-x...led-tv/365200/
    2. https://www.jbhifi.co.nz/samsung/sam...led-tv/363515/
    3. https://www.jbhifi.co.nz/panasonic/p...led-tv/338724/

    Any other recommendations at around the 2k or below mark.

    Cheers

    Any idea on the Quality of TCL? Have never heard of them before.

    TCL are what's considered a budget brand. Not totally shit but something you go for if you don't have deep pockets.

    Sony's X-Reality engine is amazing. It does such an amazing job of producing accurate colours.

    +1 to the Sony set.

    Thanks for the input. Yeah was just doing some reading on the TCLs, apparently getting better each year but still in the budget range of TVs. Might go with a brand a bit more well known.

    I've got a TLC TV, they're the best bang for buck. Though saying that, the US gets the better models. But go in store and check them out, Smith City usually have them on display. Happy with mine, it's panel was way better than anything around it's price.

    TLC would certainly be in the budget area. But if I had to choose between a TCL or a Veon. It would be TLC all day.

    For lower to medium budget panels, Sony's all the way. Just consider that they don't have satellite built in if that's a concern at all. Otherwise, great sets with an arguably better picture than the competitors. For higher budgets you'll be looking at OLED/QLED. For OLED, LG makes all the panels anyway and I'd argue their sets are the better ones. As for QLED, it's a Samsung exclusive technology. QLED sets are good, but be prepared to dump some serious money if you want a good one. They have some advantages over OLED, but OLED has some advantages over QLED.

    I don't even think Veon is in the same class as TCL. The few models of Veons I checked out looked horrendous.

    If you can hold out, Noel Leeming Massive Sell Out will be in October on/near Labour weekend. You will get a far superior deal.

    Otherwise, boxing day. TVs are one of the most heavily discounted items on boxing day.

    Got a TCL 65 with android at a boxing day sale iirc for about $1300 from JB Hifi, been very happy with it so far, don't have much to compare it to but it blows my previous LG TV out of the water. Worth a look / compare if your on a budget perhaps.

    I ended up getting one of these guys:
    https://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/t...rod182305.html

    Meets my needs and the point of the TV is to watch netflix otherwise, goes into picture mode and suites quite nicely in our small lounge

    I assume picture mode still uses a fair bit of power?

    Power Consumption (Max): 110 W
    Typical Power Consumption: 59 W

    But then you set the sensor to switch off TV after 15 mins. boom.

    Any thoughts on this? https://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/p/son.../R2462563.html

    Same tv at Noel Leeming is $999 and reviews seem positive.

    Seems expensive for what it is. In general I've found all 1080p TV's now to be vastly overpriced for what they deliver.

    If you want to spend $999, why not get this? https://www.jbhifi.co.nz/tcl/tcl-c6u...led-tv/338931/

    If it ticks all your boxes i'd grab it. Can't go too far wrong with Sony, seems to have all the current stuff smart app wise.

    Anyone have a run down of the differences between the above and this model? https://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/t...rod180346.html at Noel Leeming?
