For non korean TVs, can sharp and panasonic compete with sony? I search the old thread also dun see anyone mention toshiba (they no more in tv industry?).

Currently considering sony 55" tv with at least 3 hdmi (55W800c had 4). ok with both FHD and 4k. any other models i should compare with?

Need help on choosing between 2 tvs.
I went courts today and saw 2 tvs on offer:

LG 49UH610T free blu-ray player and free mounting

Panasonic TH49DX650S free wireless keyboard and free mounting.

Saleman insists panasonic has a better spec.
Is this true?

Don't worry too much about the specs on paper.
Grab the remote, tune the settings, bring a USB drive of some movie clip you are familar with and try it.
If the sales guy refuses, walk away!

Just wanted to share some knowledge I got when researching to purchase my TV earlier this year. 2016 models the manufacturers happily slapped the "HDR" label on practically all their TVs, but it might be good to know that the low-mid range models actually aren't fully HDR compliant. Meaning which they can accept and process an HDR signal, but they can't (fully) display the HDR picture as intended.

Some examples:

Samsung: Series 6 all cannot output a proper HDR picture.

LG: Anything below UH77 cannot output a proper HDR picture. http://www.flatpanelshd.com/article....&id=1459247590

for low/mid range HDR tvs you need to pump all settings to the max on the brightness and cannot turn on any "motion feature"to meet the so call 1000nits min "HDR standard"

all these hdr stuffs are for white elephant at the moment.

besides the TV, you need to have UHD blueray player, or UHD media player, and also UHD blueray disc. not that common now.

like jedi5diah said, netflix has a few shows in hdr/dolby vision. ps4 pro oso can output hdr but i dunno how many games actually support it. we'll see this year what happens ba, i think most manufacturers are doubling down on hdr support on their TVs so perhaps the content will catch up.
