When I quick read that I read it as well-hung.
Also true!





*no, I'm not going to retract that statement in faux-humility in small writing - but I will put a sad face, as is tradition

:(

Delivered this morning and will replace the very very old LCD in the living room.

Not gaming on it though as I don't give a shit about console gaming anymore. My PC is enough.

Nice. Has it got the old WebOS (bar along the bottom) or the new WebOS (looks like Samsung). Everyone seems to be moaning about the new WebOS but I've not had anyone give an honest opinion on it yet so curious to know what it's like if you've got it.

I am not sure what is new or old but I find the WebOS bar too busy with too many superfluous services I don't use. I am pretty sure I can edit it though.

Old is like bottom 3rd only, yeah there are too many entries but if you've got this on a modern WebOS you normally get an automatic sort you can run that moves them to the start based on usage

New is this one which I personally don't like the look of as it's all focused on pushing stuff

On the old webos you can delete the tiles with the remote - I'm not sure what it would look like if you deleted nearly all of them. Then there's that LG suggestions feature top left - now that IS a load of sales crap. I love these tvs. I've had mine for nearly 5 years now. It cost a packet but it was worth it. And I've still got the box :).

That bottom one looks remarkably like Android TV my Sony has been blessed/cursed with, depending on how you get on with it.

I find that Android TV is actually far less pushy in terms of "buy this film" stuff than most Smart TV's native UI's but I guess that's because they're focused on mining the data not flogging the products

It's not the slickest thing I've used, and it's a bit jarring when it flips between Android TV and the Sony settings, but it has been loads better recently and the apps are awesome, being straight off Google Play. In all honesty we do most of the smart stuff through Sky Q, so doesn't get used that often any more.

I've noticed it suggesting a few films from Google Play after I downloaded Super Troopers 2 from there, dead easy to ignore though, just move down a level on the menu.

I have actually been trying to sow the seeds for a new TV, but apparently house buying comes first, 65 inches are already big enough, and we aren't paying 3k for the upgrade from LED to OLED.

Bah.

nothing like the load that was sploshed over the previous tv. But i had 200 quid in nectar points from transfering BA points cause the other year i flew fuck loads for work. So this 50inch phillips amblight only cost me 250 quid.

Got the 55 Ambilight over the fireplace. Hopefully, they fixed the netcode issue on yours. On mine I occasionally have to switch between static and DHCP IP allocation to get iPlayer, All4, ITV to work. strangely never an issue with Amazon and Netflix. It was Philips support that told me the workaround. NiceTV though and the lighting effects are excellent.
