For true HDR, OLED or FALD( Full Array Local Dimming) normal LED TVs, is required.
Otherwise a good LED panel with 4K, 60 is great for most games. I am having wonderful time with basic 4K setup.
Which tv are u using? I'm inclined towards samsung frame or the hisense
I am using basic **Mi 55"** 4K TV. Blessed with good panel. No HDR or advanced features.
HDR makes a great upgrade when done with right TV. Especially OLED. Infinite contrast is a sight to behold.
I did not research and bought Sony's X75H (4k 60Hz, 55 inch) on sale. I actually bought the TV first for my media consumption needs and then later bought a PS5.
This is my first experience with a 4K display and for my eyes it's really good (I'm sure there are 100% better displays as I've read on reddit and other forums). Anyway, I'm a couch gamer and the display is good enough for me.
P.S. - I went with Sony as I had read its upscaling algorithm (1080p/720p to 4k) is one of the best. For me, I was sure I'd be watching old classic movies and shows, so that fulfilled my TV feature needs. + It has really decent speakers built-in.
Edit - Typos
Let me check out ur tv.
I think that tv displays only upto 50hz
No company manufactures 50Hz panel.
Why dont you try getting a samsung frame tv . You can get the 43 inch once under 50k during sale offers. I myself switched from mi tv 4x to samsung frame
I will check it out
This seems pretty good. Also has a hdmi 2.1 with vrr support. But as another user pointed out it doesn't have local dimming. So how is the hdr content and latency?
Hdr is good, haven't experienced any latency yet. But do keep in mind that 120fps is only available in 55 inch and above. Vrr is not available in any model, I think
Getting pretty inclined towards ur tv.
Its QLED, so that condition is satisfied as well🤣
Budget is pretty good too
Yup, took me a long time as well to decide it. But I am pretty satisfied with the tv, other than sometimes irritating tizen os. For example, do you know if you press power button, it goes in drame mode, instead of shutting down. You have to long press for 3 seconds to turn it off. There are some irritating things with os, but from gaming or hardware perspective, it should be a good tv for you. Though i would highly recommend to get it at an offer (under 50k) as you will only find 2021 model in indian market. Only difference with 2022 model is that it has an anti glare coating on screen, but its not available in india yet.
I will look for details in close by retail stores. I need to buy 2 tvs actually. So hope I get a good deal
All the best. Also, if you have a student email account, try samsung student advantage website. They sometimes have pretty good offers as well.
What other things will I need with the tv? Like a sound bar or something?
I have a Sony X85J, it supports [email protected] And is truely great. The only issue is not having local dimmings. So you have to time to time adjust brightness and contrast, or you can settle on custom as per your preferences. Can totally recommend it, has got great colors and even the built in speakers are good enough.
How much did it cost?
I got a 55 inch variant offline in Delhi for 76.5k
Is there a 43". Can't seem to find one online.
I saw one on YouTube so yeah their will be one. You can search offline stores to find it.
Sadly the 43" One is sold as x80j. And doesn't have 120hz
Wow. Did you get a display piece?
No brand new. Got it from Vijay Sales. Display piece was available for 68k. But I didn't like it's condition much.
Unless you want spend close/above to 90k for a TV, target 4k 60hz. If you want all the stuff...an LG Oled may be ideal but just be beware that not many games will actually do 120hz anyway.
I am sticking to my old 55 inch 4k 60h TV and don't see any point to upgrade at the moment.
I agree. 4k 60hz with good hdr and low latency will be best. Which tv did you go for?
The only 4K 60hz TV with great HDR and low latency which is within Rs.60K is Hisense U6G.
You can check on croma for reviews.
According to r/4k tv guide hisense isn't recommended.
That's because most of the members there are from US and they have much better offerings at the budget range with TCL and Vizio which are not available in india.It's a sub for high end buyers honestly,everyone will be recommending the OLED left and right.
Plus no matter what LED TV you choose,you always gotta pray to win the panel lottery and hisense has some poor quality control so yeah i get why people say to not buy the tv.
Check rtings reviews for 4K 60HZ tvs specifically btw but jsut saying that this is the only QLED TV with local dimming on the market that is not insanely priced and has a decent score on rtings.
U r right bro. It does look solid. Hdr is good. Do you own one by any chance?
Nah i own a 4K mi tv(i mean it's alright...not anything good) but saving up to buy the LG OLED.
But from what i heard around,this is the only decent option for a 4K 60HZ tv in the indian market rn cause budget options like TCL R635/Vizio P series are not available in the market.
You can try 4K 60hz sony tvs too but they are expensive af.
Samsung frame tv does have one hdmi 2.1 port. Will look into it.
Tcl and hisense are the best budget tvs for ps5 according to rtings
Oh yeah the samsung frame QLED TV is also great but it doesn't have local dimming.
Basically local dimming only makes it good for dark room watching right? My bedroom is kind of bright on daytimes as the window is directly opp to the tv. So i feel oled won't be good in my bedroom. And i always keep a light on in my room. I never do dark room gaming. Will losing local dimming be that bad?
It's an cheaper Iffalcon 55 inch k31 TV. Purchased at 34k some 2.5 years ago.
It has low Latency gaming mode but bad HDR..(so I turn off HDR anway..no cheap TV will have good HDR)...but otherwise it's still fantastic for gaming..so don't wanna just upgrade for the sake of upgrading.
My point is before putting a ton of money..just figure out what you really want from your TV. Probably you can get it some for much cheaper and still be satisfied.
Exactly why I posted here. To see actual people and how happy they are with their displays. Most ppl are recommending the flagships @r/4k subreddit. But I don't think it will be worth the cost. So I'm looking from areas where I can compromise.
Till now my conclusions:
Ditch hdmi2. 1
Get the best 4k 60 fps low latency tv with good hdr.
Well..to play devil's advocate..people with the LG Oleds call it a mind blowing experience..not sure if they are coming from really bad TVs or if that's indeed the case or they do it just to justify the 1Lakh they dropped.
LG OLED.. I watch everything on TV so it made sense to stretch my budget
which one ? the lg c1?
the lg c1?
I have a Samsung QN90A 55” FALD with VA 120Hz panel. Definitely an upgrade over my older 32” 1080p
For me 4K, Great HDR (as I watch movies too) and high refresh rate was what I wanted. Choices were LG C1 and Samsung QLED series
I pair it with a RTX 3080 so it may not be exactly the answer, but it really looks great.
The TV is extra bright and excellent contrast ratio. My room gets a lot of sunlight during day and the anti-glare and brightness is more than enough to be completely visible. Low latency while gaming + VRR / G-sync compatibility. Great audio from
only one HDMI 2.1 port so either only a PC or a console can be connected at one point (fixed in 2022 version)
The Samsung Tizen OS is stupid. You will miss out on atmos or 5.1 on Prime video and Hotstar (only an issue if you invest a sound system) might want to get a streaming stick for it. Little washed out blues but definitely an upgrade from your current TV.
But the tv is worth 90k i think. Is it really worth it to spend that much for a bedroom tv?
Entirely depends on what you value. For me yes it is worth every paise I paid for it. It’s been around a year now, I and my partner absolutely love it. Great TV for movies + gaming together. We love mortal kombat, Doom eternal, Forza and HZD. Fun fact: she started gaming because of the experience on my TV
Edit: sorry for the comment spam, somehow Reddit app posted the same content 5 times and still said it failed and that was even not visible after a reload
Rtings says there is a 43" As well. But can't find it online. How much did it cost?
I got it from Croma (Bangalore) costed around 1.53 lakh for 55”. 43” was probably 1.10
The same model is on discounts now though, as a newer version has come (more ports, but screen is same)
I didn't do much research before I bought mine. Bought the TV first for just being 4k ready.
I bought a 43 inch Samsung Crystal 4k Pro 2021 model AUE70. Got it on sale for 30k.
I only had 4k 60Hz in mind really and just generally having a bigger second screen.
I was thinking about connecting a PS5 to it as well when I could get one. I didn't think my luck would hit in just 1 week since the TV purchase though, lol.
My TV is a VA panel and honestly I think the picture quality is great! 4k 60Hz HDR runs at YUV422 though instead of full RGB. It has a HDMI 2.1 port but it only implements eARC. No VRR support.
No FALD either. They have a weird thing called 'Ultra Dimming' but it's marketing BS. It's not FALD tech.
I kind of wish I researched more looking back, but ignoring all the specs I missed out on, the games do look really good on it though. I'm happy with it.
The budget is pretty sweet. 30k is peanuts
I used LG’s OLED. It’s fantastic looking. Only downside was I get severe head ache the day after my binge gaming session. Something to do with the technology in the TV rapidly changing black frames invisible to eye.
Had to downgrade to regular 4K tv after that and had no problems since.
Ohk. So which one are u using currently? . Maybe the high brightness of hdr is causing the headaches.
Right now I'm inclined to buying a samsung frame or splurge and buy samsung qn90a 43"
To beat head ache I use Low or no HDR and downgrading graphics levels on the LG OLED tv. Later I got a crystal UHD 4K tv for the same and been fine since.
If the TV is being used for gaming and others try getting one with more HDMI ports.
AFAIK latest and greatest costly tech today becomes cheap and mid level tech tomorrow. Go with mid level tv in reputed brands and save some money.
Tech of same type across different brands have a day and night difference. I’ve seen it my self between Samsung, LG, Sony and MI. At the moment Samsung has frequent updates on tech and the store to download TV apps.
LG has same tech spread over for a long time and lot restricted in the tech it offers.
Sony is slow to update and do have great tvs on their current lineup.
MI are good secondary tvs
Samsung frame will be mud level I think. Even ur crstal hd is mid range. How much is the latency?
The best TV for the PS5 is the LG OLEDs.
Yeah. But those are too expensive. Not worth it. I need to buy 2 tvs actually. One for bedroom (gaming) and one in the hall
Personally I would compromise and buy a below average TV for the hall and the LG OLED for the bedroom of budget permits and depending upon your requirements.
I bought a TV costing 40k for my hall and 1.3 lakhs LG C1 for my PC gaming needs because that’s what was important to me.
LG CX is the way to go 👌
Way to go bankrupt
I bought the x90h for the ps5 beforehand. Happy ever since
