Question Confused and Lost, Help please?

Hey Guys,
new member long time reader here. Happy to finally join the community.

Here is what happening, my mom's birthday coming up and I am thinking a new tv would be a great gift. She would love it.

Biggest problem is, I live in a country where my choices are limited. We don't a lot of models on the local market. My budget is also tight, max 800$-1000$. And I am a total newbie in av world.

I am looking for a 48-50 inch Sony of Samsung preferred. I dont need 3d, 4k or android. Basic youtube viewing would be great. I'll buy her an android tv box later.

Here are the models available in my local market:

01. Sony w750D 49 inch
02. Sony w700C 48 inch
03. Sony w650D 48 inch
04. Sony w652D 48 inch

05. Samsung j5500 48 inch
06. Samsung j5100 50 inch
07. Samsung j5200 48 inch

We do have some other models but they are out of my budget. I tried to do my own digging about those models but its kinda hard for someone new specially those sony models they changes from region to region. I can't find any decent review anywhere

Help me please?

At yor budget level there aren't lots of choices... you may get more bang for your buck choosing tcl or vizio... one other little bit of advice .. if you have access to a costco the price of a free 2nd year warranty in itself might justify the membership fee.. just random thoughts from a recent 2 time tv purchaser...good luck....of the ones you have listed , my opinion, the sony choices are stronger...

Many Thanks

We dont have TCL or Vizio here, we have some LG.

I like the 48w700c. It has 4 hdmi and from what I hear its display is good. Only downside is its smart things are kind of slow which shouldn't be a huge issue, as long as tv works fine.

Are you referring to US dollars, or currency of some other country?

It may be helpful if you mention your country of residence.

Many Thanks for your reply. I am also leaning towards w700c. I cant find a single review about it online or youtube, found the product on Sony Australia site and specs. I am a little bit concerned about picture quality and I heard that its smart functions are slow because of old slow processor?

Anyone please point me to a w700c review somewhere? I know its an old 2015 model and probably discontinued in mainstream market. Still cant believe there is no user review.

Hey Guys, so I looked around a bit more and found Sony 43w800c is also available, almost at same price of 48w700c. Do you think it would be a good idea to go for 43w800c by sacrificing the bigger display size?

At the level of TVs you're looking at, I think screen size is going to give you bigger bang-for-the-buck than going up to a 800 vs 700 model.

49" KS8000; 65" P65: returned; 65" KS9000: sold; 65" KS8000: exchanged; 60" M-60: sold; 60" JS7000: returned
Infinity Overture 3 (decoration)
Definitive BP-2000 and CLR 3000 (front and center)
Denon AVR-2307ci
SVS PB-2000
