I’m trying to source a 85” TV for my dad’s client. The TV will be used to display a promotional reel in store. I believe it will be played through a USB stick.

 

The client would like a Samsung UA85JU7000WXXY. I assume this is the Australian equivalent of the Samsung UA85JU7000SXNZ.

 

I’ve spoken to a few retailers and it’s very difficult for them to source a UA85JU7000SXNZ. And even if they can, they haven’t been able to give me an idea of price at this point. Any idea what the NZ retail price of this model is?

One retailer offered to get in a Panasonic TH-85X940Z for just over 15k. Any thoughts on this model and price?

 

If the size is negotiable, then I feel something like this LG is a much smarter move. Considering it’s only 6 inches smaller, and half the price of the Panasonic.

 

Any recommendations?

Thanks : )

Many LCDs will struggle to survive long term if you're using the TV as an 85hour per week shop display. Longevity should be best from Panasonic for consumer panels.

 

 

Get them to turn off the overscan if it isn't turned off automatically.

Don't the likes of Sony and Panasonic make panels specifically for display purposes? Might be better then a consumer panel.

Yes, we use some as security monitors.  Not cheap, but specifically orientated for this purpose.  Usually have inputs for triggers from external devices etc as well, so the comms / I/O side of things is more prominent also.

I would be recommending a commercial panel. $15k is a lot to outlay on something that is not designed to be run as a display monitor. It will have no CGA protection either (being used in a commercial environment).

 

Samsung, Panasonic and Philips (amongst others) all do commercial panels designed to be run non-stop (with commercial warranties too). With that much outlay, he is bettwr maybe to go slightly smaller and commercial than biggest available and domestic.

Hi guys,

 

Thanks for all the replies. I spoke to Samsung yesterday and was made aware of the commercial models. Unfortunately, there aren't any in the factory at the moment, so there would be a 7 week wait. I'm also aware of the lack of warranty on consumer panels, which is a concern.

 

Might get in touch with Panasonic to check the availability of their commercial panels.

Thanks,

Sam

Also HP make commercial displays that are well thought of.

Sorry I was talking about the whole television. Panasonic has had a track record as the most reliable television brand likely because of more reliable power boards as they use their own parts.
