Smart TV, Best choice for quality and price

Recommended Posts

Looking for a Smart TV for the inlaws for Christmas. I was wondering where you may have purchased your smart TV and your thoughts on the quality and price. What about lazada or its LAZMall? We are still in the states so we either need to buy online or in the NCR where family can pick it up.

 

Thanks!

Although I have no direct experience of them, I would look at either Sharp or LG for a quality v price comparison. I know friends who have both and are very happy with them.

We have two Sony smart tv's and they are excellent. We bought them through Abensons. They did a good deal for both and have always given good after sales service. Not cheap but you do get what you pay for. 

I would be wary about buying a tv through Lazada just because of the ensuing headache and hassle if you needed warranty work doing on them, unless you could get that done at a local service centre. In your case I would probably get the family to buy it in person in NCR to avoid possible after sales issues.

I have a TCL 4k on the way from Lazada.  Best bang for the buck I was able to find.  Cost-wise I would have had to pay almost double for a Sony or LG.  I would recommend to stay away from Sharp based on personal experience.

I bought a TCL 4k TV from Abensons, but not a fan of smart TVs.  I brought over Amazon Firestick 4k and use that instead.

i bought a 55 inch Skyworth from SM appliance as it fitted my price budget.. I think was less than 30- 33 K. Includes Youtube and Netflix as standard as i have no interest in getting local channel or a subscriptions. Been working fine for past year and no problems..

We bought a 49" TCL smart TV from SM Appliance.  I researched on line and TCL came up well in the performance/cost analysis.  Honestly speaking, I bough it mainly for the looks - it has a very good look.  We've had it for about 2 months now and no issues - I'm happy with it.  Unfortunately, we don't get the benefit of it's 4k abilities because the internet is too slow.  I'd give it a solid 7 or 8 /10.

I've been keeping an eye on TCL. Seem very popular, maybe only because of the price though.

I think the price is definitely what makes it so popular - it does a solid job and I suspect for most people we wouldn't really know the difference between it and high-end models - especially given the internet environment here

We've got a large LG smart TV in the sala and a smaller Samsung smart TV in the bedroom. 

Both have good pictures and the smart software in both is usable but limited compared to (for example) an Apple TV unit (or even the cheap Xiaomi Android TV box).

I didn't like the image quality on the couple of TCL TVs I looked at but that might have been just adjustment settings.
