    Default 40 inch TV deals - Recommendations

    Hi

    The Mrs is after a 40 inch tv. I'm not clued up on all the current must have techie stuf when it comes to tv's but:

    - tv needs to be 40 inch with as much of that as possible being the screen itself as needs to fit in a particular space.
    - Slim as in minimal depth
    - good deals..........

    Thanks

    I would recommend one of the LG 4k models. The picture quality is very good and the operating system is excellent. My model has both satellite and tv inputs. There is a smart remote available that adds voice control. Only downside is that the Freesat guide takes a couple of seconds to load.

    +1 for the LG TV's. I used to be a Samsung fan but my 50" tv developed, as it turns out, a very well known fault of purple splodges on the screen. Samsung are fully aware of the issue but refuse to help once the tv is out of warranty, mine is 3 years old. I was told by Samsung customer services that it would need a new screen as the LED array was failing but they no longer make that screen so it cannot be repaired. You'd imagine a company as huge as Samsung might offer some sort of good will gesture as this is a fault that has been reported globally.
    I've read many reviews on LG tellies and there seems very little on the negative side. Definitely be my next tv purchase.

    This is 43" but has very narrow bezels. I have the 49" model and I am very pleased with it. https://www.johnlewis.com/lg-43um750...titan/p4115212

    A useful feature is that by plugging in a HDD or USB stick you can record from Freeview and Freesat

    I bought the bigger version of this a few weeks ago..

    https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/tv-and...91734-pdt.html

    For ease of use, features and picture quality itís fantastic and has a proper metal remote that not only looks nice, but accesses every function of the TV with ease..



    The volume and channel buttons are actually rocker switches and its just a nice thing to use.
    Maybe a bit nerdy of me, but its the little things that count. Or so the wife keeps telling me.

    I need a new TV, my old tube portable is crap, been meaning to buy one for ages but its even more complicated than buying hifi these days! I only want a smallish tv, but reviews of those suggest the quality is crap, I like the quality of the old tube tvs, never got any motion issues with those, or nasty pixellation.

    Thanks for the link, just bought one, seems the smallest decent tv you can buy nowadays is 43".
