Overated In My Opinion

 

Even though our old TV - a 43" 2011 3D Lg - still had an excellent 1080p picture we decided to treat ourselves to a new 4K TV with Android built in. We had waited quite a few Years until the technology had improved (as well as the price dropping) and...

Careful research paid off.

Awesome 49" tv!!

 

Fantastic picture probably the best for a 49" tv, great for 4k gaming with the 100hz native screen almost no motion blur, clunky smart software let's it down a bit but it's usable, shame only 2 of the HDMI inputs are 2.2 compliant with one of those...
