    My mistake. LG 43UN81006LB isn't OLED. Been a long day.

    ...thanks, please do.

I'm concerned about viewing angles, which are difficult to judge on Amazon.

    Not looking forward to needing a soundbar. My chunky 2006 Sony might have a microscopic 32" screen, but it knows how to make a sound.

    Incidentally this was the procedure for building the Pi. Skips adverts in recorded programs, plays videos from phones, view TV on any device etc.

    It arrives on Monday, will let you know

    It's an LED, not OLED, which kept the price down. It's going to be plenty good enough for what I'll use it for.

    40" is a nice size if you are more than a couple of metres away. I would say 4K and HDR makes quite a difference the first time you see it, then you forget.
    I was very happy with our 42" 10 year old LCD but their was no way BS03 was going to have his xbox plugged into the living room tv for six months during lockdown. So that went to his room and the new 55" came into the living room.

    55" with 4k/UHD/HDR content is impressive through in a an ATMOS surrounded setup and its a great cinematic experience. We added a SL8YG sound bar and added the optional rear speakers (spk8-s).

    For sub 50" and something that will be compatible with the new XBox this is touted to be the TV of choice. LG OLED48CX6LB.

    Netflix UHD and UHD Movies with a ATMOS compatible sound system have kept us going through lock down.

    This is what I bought: lg oled55b9pla.
    LG OLED55E9PLA here - good choice BS!

    I have not seen any OLED's which are not "Smart"
    We jumped From a 10 year old Sony Bravia 42" LED, to 55" inch LG OLED. The difference is incredible.
