    I see that the model I bought is now discontinued but they do have the 43" update on my model in stock https://www.richersounds.com/lg-43uk...-page-product3

    It is not the thinnest screen nor the most beautiful, but I am pleased with the quality.

    Hi guys...

    thanks all of you... some great information.

    Hi Geoff, the price of that is good. I'm not bothered about size though. I'd go up to 40" - 43" at a push. Anything bigger I think would be too big.

    Just wondering if buying 2nd hand would be a good idea?

    The included 6 year warranty means that this works out at just over 1 per week. Second hand with panel TVs is risky and you run the risk of damage in transit. For this price you are also getting this year's tech. Of course, you could opt for a standard HD tv rather than a 4k unit. However, even at 43" I would still opt for the higher res.

    I'm in the same position - my Toshiba Regza is actually a very good HD performer but I would now like a 40" 4K TV as the bezels are now much smaller.

    There is a shortage of decent screens available in this size from my research, as manufacturers seem to be ditching this size in preference for 43".

    The only decent option I have found is this Samsung which I hope to be buying soon -

    If you wanted to buy second hand, the Panasonic TX40EX700B is now discontinued, but a very well reviewed 4K screen.

    Make sure you check out the OS before you buy. I went for LG because their Web OS 3.5 is excellent and the optional magic remote superb. It has voice control and acts like a mouse. Just point it at the option on the screen and click!

    The Sony OS was terrible when I tried one of their tvs in Richer sounds. Took forever just to play a file off a flashdrive.

    Hmm.. Interesting. Sony are normally good at that sort of thing.

    I don't think Sony are on the cards anyway, they seem expensive.

    Getting the next size up is good advice. You very quickly get used to the size of modern TVs and with the bezels being much smaller you can go up in size easily without taking up any extra space.

    I also bought a LG 49" 4K HDR smart TV recently which we love, only thing I found was I needed to run an ethernet cable to it as even though it's in same room as router it buffered quite a lot over wifi.
