Actually hindi ko sure yung exact model pero Samsung siya na 65 uhd curve...it going for around $1300.

Gusto ko lan kasi malaman kasi yung flat version niya na halos same specs, nasa $899 lang and i guess gusto ko madinig mga opinion ng mga nakakaalam natin dito kung worth it ba yung extra na ibabayad ko for the curve. :)
Short answer is nope. Its not worth it. My grandmother has one, and other than it looking cool, there's no benefit to it.

Just get the flat screen coumterpart. You get the same pq, same features, at a far cheaper price.

Ah ok! Salamat sa advice...medyo in the fence kasi talaga ako kung worth it yung curve eh. Sige,ill go for the regular flat na lang and save, sayang din yung for $400-500 na matitipid ko! :)

Yup, yun nga ang plan! Pero naghahanda na din ako kaya inaalam ko na kung ano bibilin ko. Usually ang pinagkakaguluhan naman ng mga tao is yung 50inches pababa eh...hehehe.

The 2017 model is the x8000e. It should be availabe now. Problem is, based sa review ng rtings, mas maganda daw yung x8000d. If makahanap ka pa ng x8000d that would be better, but the x8000e is good enough.

New Ps4 Pro owner here and a 4K HDR TV. I decided to get the 2017 LG UJ752V (middle east version) 43 inches.

In the US it is the UJ7700 here are some of the specs:

True Motion / Refresh Rate 100 / 50 Hz
HDR HDR Active with Dolby vision
- Dolby Vision Yes
- HDR10 Yes
- HLG Yes
Dimming (Set Spec.) Local Dimming
Dimming (Module Spec.) 6

Color Master Engine Yes
- Upscaler 4K Upscaler

HEVC Decoder 4K@60P, 10bit

It also has a nice review http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/uj7700

Wala pako mashado time kalikutin mga options but by default settings I was blown away by the picture quality really worth
the money.

As for the PS4 Pro games, what games will u recommend to me? buti na lang di ko pa nalalaro Rise of the Tomb Raider,

For PS4 Pro games ito yung mga most impressive for me so far (absolute must play):

1. Horizon Zero Dawn
2. Ratchet and Clank
3. Uncharted 4
4. Rise of the Tomb Raider
5. Watch Dogs 2

Yung mga okay din but not as impressive as above:
1. The Last of Us Remastered
2. Titanfall 2
3. Battlefield 1
4. Resident Evil 7

Sounds like a good deal. I have the x8000d and im happy with it, make sure you test it oit lang to see if it fits what you are looking for in a tv.

Also love the android tv os.

You'd be surprised :lol: They sell anything from Roomba type vaccum cleaneres, laptops, routers, Go Pro Style cameras, to TVs, soundbars, shoes, and ballpens :lol:

Sa phone market, I think they are above the other chinese brands in terms of quality. Hit or miss pa din with chinese brands, pero TCL and Xiaomi yung top 2 chinese brands for me. I think it's worth a shot, I would buy one kung kasya lang sa TV rack ko sa condo :lol: And may 42 inch 3D tv pa ako na 1080p na gusto iunload pero di ko pa mabenta :lol:

Found this video while researching the xiaomi mi 4 tv. Looks like HDR is not supported using the PS4 Pro.



Hit or miss nga yata. I'll stick with the big brands na lang. But thanks for the input, ron.

check mo yung reddit link below, may setting lang na kailangan i-on sa TV (turn HDMI 2.0 on to fix HDR issues). Similar din ito sa Sony TV ko na may advanced HDMI input na kailangan ion para isupport yung hdr. So PS4 Pro and Xbox One X hdr compatible siya (HDR 10 kasi).

But generally, I would agree, to do your due diligence and homework before buying any tv (lalo na brand like this na di pa masyado tried and tested).
