Older high end TVs?
« on: June 13, 2018, 01:47:19 PM »
Hi guys, so I was thinking about this and I figured I'd ask. When is an holder high end TVs not worth it? The reason this came about was because I saw the Hisense 55t910uwd on takealot and it's the flagship model from 2015. It has FALD which is heralded In the land of TVs. Would it be wise to buy a TV like this, versus, say your LJ SJ800 or a Samsung MU700 or A Hisense M7000. These tvs are all Edge lit. Now I know that that is not the o my marker for quality, but between these tvs, would the t910 be a good option. Or not.

It's not a FALD display, it's just a backlit display - lower end models actual tend to be backlit, you pay extra for the slim chassis of the edge lit models. All the other TVs mentioned are better specified than this one.

I was given a 24" CRT TV, a B&O unit from a deceased estate.  The picture was amazing, it did 1080i via component video.  The problem was the weight at 72kg.  It also used 800 watts of power

I had a H7000 which was well rates a few years aback - awesome 1080 playback.

But it was 1080 ... I'm not sure I'd get a 1080 screen midway through 2018
