Ok, I bought a Sony Bravia LED tv last year, brilliant happy.

We're doing a refurb in the house and need a bigger new tv 50 inch ish,
I'm not familiar with these big boys, so, what's anyone else's advice, I'm used to 40 inch, but above that it's all new.
What are the pro's and cons, and do Sony offer me what I want as regards quality, image, functions?

I bought an LG 50" 3D smart tv earlier this year, love it! Tons of functions including being able to steam from a mobile device straight onto the tv. I paid £699 which included a free sound bar, I really rate their tv's to be honest although most of the big names are a safe bet

The key thing you need to do is view them working before buying. And unless you watch everything in HD (Most don't) view it in non-HD mode as well (Playing non-HD content) as some that have excellent HD picture have absolutely terrible non-HD picture (And vice-versa). Also brands vary, some Samsung models are excellent and some poor for example. Also, if you are buying a huge screen, make sure you view it at the same distance you will have it in your house as in the big stores it's easy to end up much further away and when you move closer you lose some of the 'seen' quality.

Don't be blinded by science or features unless a particular feature is vital to you. The picture and sound quality are the most important things.

depends what you want m8, if your a 3D fan then LG do the easiest setup, they use passive 3D (just like the cinema), Samsung on the other hand use active 3D, if your after 3D do some reading on this, not hard to understand, prices are relatively similar for either make, with LG giving you more bang for your buck...........get yourself a 75".......tested one of these the other week for a customer MEGA........esp with a PS4 hooked up lmao........only 2-3K if you shop around Clap

all screens will show reflection to some degree, esp if the TV faces a window, like one of the guys above said not really a problem, buy some blinds lmao

................and yeah curved tv is in it's infancy so i'd give that a wide berth unless you want to fork out 4K for something sure to be bettered in a matter of months, picture quality is absolutely mind blowing though, beats blu-ray hands down, not so much a case of unless your sitting directly opposite you won't see it as ALL flat panel tv's suffer from this esp those running 3D (light doesn't bend)........more a case of there's better to come real soon, like a PC it'll be outdated quickly with the way technology advances in those markets

it's horses for courses.............the choice is yours, only real thing is stay away from less popular brands...........these go fubar quickly..............not saying the popular brands don't but the longevity is greater.............oh and if it's Plasma your after, samsung have discontinued their toying with Plasma as they are now focussing on 4K format so you might find the prices of BIG screen SAMSUNG plasmas being very attractive.................

I have recently bought a 600hz 50" 3D LG LED, blacks are fantastic and HD content looks great. Had a 42" plasma, blacks looked far from black it just couldn't compare, that was also full HD but only 200hz, and I know the hz made no real difference to the refresh rate whilst watching TV, gaming however would benefit.
