Recommendation of 50" / 55" smart led tv

Want to get as per above. Went to courts and harvey norman all recommend me to get LG brand. Is it true that LG has become the "better" brand? Can anyone recommend me one without 3D doesn't have to be LG if you think otherwise. Which has good colour reproduction and wont have such ghosting/lag issue. This tv will be place in the living room as a gift for my retired dad. Budget below 2k. Thanks in advanced.

Only LG and Sony TVs give you the most realistic images.

Samsung color is too vibrant not natural same goes for LG. I have this 55" 7 series samsung and it die a year and a half, die as in vertical lines, edge bleed and tv on and off by itself.

things to take note, dun be fool by the made in korea, is not assemble in korea, only the panel manufacture in korea assemble done in taiwan or china. Assemble is the main thing thats why lots of tv panel die as the assemble did not do a good job.

Even panel is not made in Korea at least for those 47" high end model I saw recently. Anyway, that's fact of life even for other brand. Some brand do not even has their own panel. They source it from other maker and it can change from model to model, batch to batch.

Here in this region, we do not have stick requirement to mention place of manufacturing clearly. So is up to you to believe what the salesman mention to you.

There is setting to change them. Usually in the shop, they set almost everything to maximum.
