Looking for quick, rather cheap TV remplacement for my LGUH603
, an entry level 43' inch 4K that was pretty decent as my first real TV, but it look really tired now, with washed out colors on one side and some led malfunction...
I'm looking for a 43" or 49" inch
, something solid and not that expensive, because I just need a TV right now I'd say, I will probably buy something better in the future. I was looking for the Samsung Q70R
, it would be a huge improvement from what I have but after digging it doesn't look that good especially for the price, and local dimming is such crap for anybody using subtitles I don't think I want this right now. Then I was looking for the Samsung Q60R
, but my sister bought one and it also looks very lackluster, not that impressive picture quality for an 800 euros qled, with obvious flashlightning in the upper corners, annoying smart features and remote... and horrible video game handling (the Nintendo Switch can't even be recognized properly, and I've read many similar complaints) so I'll think I'm gonna pass on this one too.
I guess I should rather be looking on the 500/700$ range, but I can't really decide between Samsung
look like safe bets), Sony
(don't know much about them, seems they don't make many "small" TV compared to other brands), and obviously LG
because, as basic and cheap my actual TV is, I was kinda pleased by it so maybe a similar/slightly better model like the UK6300
series could do.
The only bothering fact about non-oled LG TV's is everybody (or rtings, actually) keep saying they're so bad at displaying dark scenes and in a dark room, which is actually how I watch movies so I don't know... I admit my UH603 didn't look very good in the dark, but I got used to it, and it's maybe better in new/slightly better LG models ?
Because as a whole LG picture quality is more my taste than what's found on Samsung... but it's just me. Actually I'm almost afraid to leave LG for another brand because it was pretty decent, I fear buying something worst and less familiar...
So yeah, I'm looking for an all-around TV, something that's not amazing, but that works well in every field. I don't want it having like a major flaw (except sound quality, I don't care since I have an external system) because I use a TV for basically everything: watching movies, tv shows, playing video games, using it a lot with a connected pc...
If you have some advice about entry/mid level 4K TVs from the aforementioned brands, I'd appreciate it a lot !
