This is probably the best price to performance tv available at it's category, after doing much research about tv models available I chose this tv. My thoughts are: High contrast levels because of the VA panel. Little to no colour banding. Low input lag...

Great TV great price

 

In my first week of owning after deciding to upgrade and it's great. On 4k sources the picture is stunning, on non 4k the upscaling is fantastic too. Sound quality is excellent too, 10/10
