Hi, after a tv for my nana, her old box died lol, probably during some quack ranting on the starlight channel lol

She is 91 and religious and hates spending money unless to aid orgs etc, everything is very old and often ropey etc but she is very independent

So despite my advice she has a strict $300 budget which means a good used or a dse/veon etc

Id rather get a $450ish sammy or sony with decent contrast and colour but ah well

Anyone know currently what cheap tvs if any have the above? 720p is fine, all about the accurate PQ for daylight and skn tones
Are they all inferior to say sony w6/w7 and samsung mid-low lvl?

Panasonic are the only ones in that size range that still seem to try for picture quality.

Shes using my spare old samsung 32C650 lcd circa 2010 and i think its possibly better than the mid range current sammy 5 series we just got for beach, despite good reviews

Seems to have more natural colours, anyway thx

You may get something on tradesmen. I pocked up a near new Sony 32 full HD for 240 for my parents. Otherwise the Easter sales may have something good. Stick to the premium brands for reliability.

Tell her to stop being so tight and she can't take it with her so spend it now.
