As some of you may remember I have been cogitating about upgrading my main TV, but have had concerns about my SD material being rendered unwatchable.
I have spent the last couple of months upgrading my business IT and decided to include a new monitor, one thing that always attracts is screen real estate, and so I decided to look at TVs, I have been using an LED 24" for the past six years or so.
I wanted UHD, which means 40"+. Having done some research I have bought a 43" LG UM7400 LED for the grand sum of £299, including a 5 year guarantee.
Why the LG?
- Price, obviously;
- The screen is IPS and so unlikely to suffer burn in;
- The response time is 5ms, so no annoying lag; and
- It does chroma 4:4:4, which I need for clear text.
My primary use is for programming and office uses, but as it is a Smart TV with streaming clients built in, as well as Netflix and Prime, I decided to have a quick shufty at some SD and 4k content through it.
As I only received the TV yesterday I haven’t finished setting things up, but I will post my thoughts in due course.
