In view of getting FTTP, considering upgrading parents TV. Currently, they use a 1080p TV, can’t remember exact size, think it could be 42″ but lets say its between 40-43″. Anyone have any suggestions/recommendations on a replacement TV, I think I can fit a 43″ TV but no bigger. Parents quiet like the Panasonic TVs, I have had a Samsung 4k TV but the TV was a bit slow to respond to the remote control, to the point where it becomes really annoying trying to change the channel so since then parents not keen on Samsung TVs, sham as picture quality is pretty good. I even bought a new remote for it but same issue so possibly some design flaw etc. I saw some reviews on a new Samsung but that too had complaints of slowness to respond etc.
Many thanks for any recommendations, not sure when new TV models come out etc. Ideally would need 4 HDMI ports on it but maybe able to get away with 3 HDMI ports if really good TV and worth the sacrifice (bluray player is seldom used but nice to have connected for that rare occasion they want to use it).

Who doesn’t love a great TV !
When I got my LG OLED TV – I went on the following Criteria
Sony TV’s are by the way the best Manufacturer, especially when it comes to the Audio side, the sound is truly breathtaking with the higher end models.
LG and Samsung are also both very good.
Sony are very expensive when compared to LG and Samsung etc.
I suppose the main choice is between OLED vs LED vs QLED and as Samsung do not manufacture OLED TV’s, (LG does) then that may help with brand choice.
Samsung and Sony both rate well in this area (my view) but like most things Samsung, if it goes wrong, parts are changed / updated very quickly on the production line and so spare parts can be a challenge..
Then there is the fact that nowadays, most TV (LED) are actual made in Turkey (I know ) then that helps or not ?
.’. Panel Type (+) Cost (+) Manufacturer = new TV (Almost)

My LG TV is good but does lack in terms of CPU performance and its Browser app is very basic, but it was a great price, if money was no object, the new Sony AG9 is the TV I would purchase if I ever win the lottery
I have seen them at our local Costco and truly stunning they are to watch . (I need to get a life)
@Bully forum member purchased a Panasonic model , so hopefully he will see this thread and respond. (I will give him a nudge)

TV does look nice but max size they can fit is 43″ due to a unit and wall (sits in the corner of the room) so that’s most it can be. Yes, I’ve always seen good reviews for Sony TVs etc but they are always much higher priced and I’m not sure the higher price is justified in some cases, not all but I find anything with Sony brand is higher priced, even cameras :)

I see, if the 43″ is fixed, then this rules out any OLED TV panel (OLED TV’s are not made that small currently) , which makes the choice a little easier I suppose.
NanoCell Vs LED Vs QLED
- OLED (not to your screen size requirements)
- Everything Else

I have a Panasonic 55” GZ1000 oled, fantastic tv. I have always bought Panasonic, the lower end models are ok but not as good as the higher end models.
Panasonic do the 43″ Ultra HD 4K LED Television- TX-43HX940B, may be worth a look, I have lost touch with LED Tv’s since moving to oled.

Totally agree, once you have experienced OLED, everything else looses interest

Thanks both. Due to the size restrictions, unable to get OLED for parents so this Panasonic maybe the way forward. Any alternatives you suggest? Is this a 2021 Panasonic or 2020 model?

LG also offer a 43” LG ULTRA HD 4K TV but we do use in one of our bedrooms / office the LG 32 Inch 32LM637BPLA (not UHD) and works a treat including the streaming via apps etc.
Only dislike are that the buttons (remote) are a bit fiddly (minor complaint really)
