    TV recommendation.

    We've bought an investment flat that is now nearing the end of its renovation and want a TV for it around the 40" size. The flat is going to double as an airbnb property as well as somewhere our friends and family can stay when visiting, if it was solely an airbnb I'd stick any crappy Asda TV in it, but since it's family too something decent would be nice. Any recommendations sub 400/450?

    I checked out what was in Currys and there were two sets that caught my eye image wise, a Samsung and a Panasonic.

    This one got decent write ups
    I looked at it before I realized I needed to spend more for an actual HDR TV

    You've got a Phillips ambilight one here, if you fancy something pretty and glowy.

    Or a mid range Samsung one - these are good for apps.

    Thanks Boris, I think the Samsung and Panasonic are in the same range as the two I was considering (49" Panasonic, 43" Samsung)

    If you're going to spend 500 @Colin I'd highly recommend just placing a wanted ad over on AVF as you'll find something really good, worth the money and local quite quickly as that lot have backlogs of TVs like we do games. You'll end up with a slightly older, used set but it will be the best possible one as someone else would've already done the legwork with weeding out banding, backlight issues etc.. and it all makes life so much simpler and you'll end up with an image far in advance of anything you'd get for comparable money from the shops.

    It's not a bad idea RS, but every single thing in there is brand new and with it being a holiday rental place we'd rather have warranty on everything. The money that's been spent on it is ridiculous, I just don't feel a need to spend a fortune on a TV for it, I haven't even upgraded our own TV for well over five years. (Might even be nearer ten!)

    In that case I'd buy a new one for you and put the antiques roadshow special in the airbnb. With everything else spanky new no one is going to moan about an old tv and once it starts making some loot then think about putting a new one in and offset it against the taxable income.

    I'll never change our current TV until the day it dies, I love it, and have zero desire/need to upgrade to 4K etc. I'll buy a set this weekend probably, I've set a budget but may well get carried away, you never know.

    Stay away from sub 1k Panasonic's, and especially stay clear of 500 ones! i got my daughter a 400 pana a few years back and its terrible.
    pretty sure they re-badge cheap TV's at that price point.

    Go for Samsung or LG down at the 500.

    I did that. Went in to buy a 400 set and ended up spunking 1800! It's too easily done!
