There's some very good TV deals on at the moment! (There were some Friday 13th sales at Harvey Norman, but I literally refreshed the page at 12am and they all increased by just $30.


Sony 55" X9000E 4K Smart TV @ Harvey Norman for $1871 (Bonus $200 HN Gift Card)


Sony 65" X7000E 4K Smart TV @ Harvey Norman for $1798 (Bonus $200 HN Gift Card)


LG 60" UJ654V 4K Smart TV @ Heathcotes for $1537


What do people think of the LG TV? Is the picture quality on par, below or above the Sony TVs? Sounds pretty darn good for a 60" 4K Smart TV! 


At the moment, it seems I'm tossing up either a bigger screen or better features. Hmmm.


X9000E Pros: Android TV, better image processor apparently (X1)


X9000E Cons: Smaller screen size.


X7000E Pros: Bigger screen for cheaper price.


X7000E Cons: Less features, uses older image processor.


UJ654V Pros: Big screen, cheapest price, Have heard good things about WebOS 3.5 and it's got the magic remote.


UJ654V Cons: Unknown picture quality. How does it handle upscaling etc.

I've just changed from a 55" Sony Android TV to a 65" LG WebOS tv.


Picture is very nice, only complaint is that it won't play Netflix in 5.1 over the ARC HDMI. The amp tries to play it but I just this garbled static sound, only fix is to either use the optical cable or put it to 2.1 sound.

How do you find WebOS compared to Android TV? Does it get updates to apps like Lightbox, TVNZ etc?

I've got no problems with it, I don't know how often apps get updated as I've had the TV for a month but no updates so far.


It has the Freeview ondemand app which the Android TV didn't.
