I would like to replace the existing 9 year old Sony Bravia 37” LCD TV in our lounge. Our viewing distance is quite short and SWMBO has decreed that an overall set size similar to the current one is the limit. Because current models have much thinner frames this allows me to go for a 40”or 43” model.
i want to get the best quality screen but it seems that smaller TVs don’t share the more advanced technology of their bigger brothers. I am having difficulty in getting objective reviews and shop displays are misleading and so I am seeking advice from fellow forum members.
The 3 sets I have identified so far are: LG 43UJ634V (£350), Samsung UE40MU6400 (£430) and Sony Bravia KD43XE8005 (£570). Is the Sony significantly better than the other two? If not then the LG makes more sense or do I split the price different and select the slightly smaller Samsung? All help, including any other TV suggestions are appreciated.
