State budget and other desired features/function (integrated DVB-T2 tuner, etc) loh Suggest get non smart TV and seperate droid box cos these "smart tvs" sometimes not very smart no firmware/software updates make them obsolete *fast* w.r.t some apps or future media files

That budget these days can land you a 55"-60" 4K TV!
Eg: https://www.lazada.sg/samsung-ua55mu...tem_page.right
A boatload more (150+) reviews of exact model to better gauge customer satisfaction?
https://www.testfreaks.com/televisio...00-un55mu6300/
Perhaps an estimate of your viewing distance away from the TV would help? I suggest buying brand covered by official local warranty as well? FYI i bought a TV off Lazada for my parents and it worked out really well

I think one of the fastest way to decide is to head to any store and look at the screens. Picture literally tell a thousand words.

$1500 can easily get you 4k screens, I was personally looking at panasonic 55", model EX640. Sold out at BD recently @ price of $1299.

How about Sony 55inch 850D? I guess this is very good choice for you according to the price, quality and picture. The price is about 1450 for new set. For your information.

Looking for Television, TV 49" or 50" inch Ultra HD

NO 3D , NO Internet, for elderly people who don't use PC or laptop

Budget only 1K for TV only.

any suggestions?

I know you said no need internet but this Sharp fall under your budget and is far "smarter" than any smart tv with a full on Android TV OS! Official apps d/l via Google Store (Netflix/Youtube/etc) and my fav features wired ethernet + USB 3.0! You can install Kodi for Android and it could be the a potent entertainment suite

Really? Sony is good at TV and the price is higher than other brand. Here is the review of this TV.

Don't spend too much on a TV you'll regret it when it fails on you soon after the warranty expires. Tv (s) today aren't make as they were before where a it would last more than 10 years. I had a Samsung that needed it's LED panel replaced in three and a half years. The first was under warranty but the second time was after wrranty had expired.
