Hey guys,

I am looking at purchasing a secondhand tv. Two are for sale, however im unsure of what one to get. Have put down both models below for ease. If someone can help me out on deciding that would be amazing.

Cheers

@ARGJ88 Why don't you Google search the models and review the specs between both of them?

 

Samsung and Panasonic both make good TV's

Theyre both getting on in age.....  whats your budget ? What do you want to use it for - gaming, movies etc ?

 

Might be better looking at a new Veon (generally good picture but sound not great)

If you're going to be using the USB ports to play movies - 100% Samsung.

 

Only TV brand I know with with NTFS and .MKV support for downloaded videos/movies. 

 

Panasonic's codec support is extremely poor.

Hey the tv will be used for both gaming and movies. Probs doesnt help the answer. 

 

 

 

I watch movies and stream content through playstation, so n real usb will be connected. It will be only via PS or laptop and Apple TV.

They're both 6 or 7 years old. An old Samsung LCD is unlikely to have many years left in it as they've always been a less reliable brand. The old Panasonic LCDs' IPS panels weren't great for black levels in movies as they were selling plasmas for that at the time.

 

 

 

If you trawl Trademe very carefully you should be able to find a good model made in the last few years at a reasonable price as few people have much awareness of model names and ages.

 

 

 

Veons can have undefeatable blue shift from their budget backlights.

Crazy to buy a TV that is 6 to 7 years old

An old Panasonic LED backlit IPS LCDs should still make for good signage.

Especially with an older TV, I'd go with Samsung if you have Samsung phones or tablets. My Samsung devices don't integrate well with my 3-y-o Panasonic TV.
