    Default Help me choose a TV

    So the next item to replace after our recent burglary is the TV. I've heard good things about Hisense. Should I go 50N3000 or 55K3140?

    What do you knowledgeable folk suggest?

    If it's for a reasonably big room, perhaps the 55" would work, where you're perhaps far enough away that the lower res would be less noticeable. I'd be partial to a UHD telly though
    Ach! Crivens!

    Future proof yourself and grab the 4k UHD. 55 inch is a good option provided it's within the price range you looking for.

    Those are really good prices! I'm hoping to but with some hifi Corp vouchers acquired via ebucks, so my store options are a bit limited.

    I guess it's worth a shot. 55" would be sweet!

    It's a good tv. Just don't expect it to be smart, though. You'll have to budget for a mi box or similar device to truly experience a smart tv.
