    Look forward to hearing what you think of new telly.

    It's also on my short list to replace our Panasonic 42" plasma, along with

    Panasonic TX50HX580B

    and

    LG 50UN73006LA

    Both of which are 50 quid cheaper. The 50" Panasonic doesn't have Freesat support but we don't (currently) need it. Currently can't see what the difference is between the two LG models (apart from 50 quid) unless the the 73006 is just an older model?

      Head to avforums and see what they say - apart from the fact your timing is wrong and Black Friday is the first time to be looking at this years models unless the TV has died.

        I am by no means an authority on TVs but I'm happy enough with my new toy. The size perfect for me and the space the TV is put in.

        Picture looks good but I'm still messing with the preset options to work out the one I like best.

        It was easy enough to set up Amazon Prime Video and BBC iPlayer. I may yet be tempted to get Netflix but I've survived without for this long so that's unlikely.

        Noticed that it discovered my NAS on the network so I'm going to try pulling a film or TV episode from there.

        Not hugely fussed by the OS and menu and will probably stick with watching programmes via my PC rather than the built-in apps.

        The magic remote takes a little getting used to but it's easy enough and quite responsive.

            Fair point on AvForums.

            Is Black Friday still worth it? Recent years it's seemed (to me at least) to be nothing special in terms of discounts (admittedly I wasn't looking for a tele).

              There needs to be a female old git. This site is sexist.

                For TVs it definitely was last year the LG OLEDs went down £400+ if you were quick enough

                  How are the viewing angles on your new LG 43UN81006LB ?

                      It's fine for what I'm doing. I'm not sitting square onto it and I'm happy with the image.

                      webOS is taking some getting used to. Unlikely to use it much now I'm all set up. I watch stuff via my micro PC and don't really need the apps that are installed.
