Best TV 2017 price-value

In this post we try to recommend what TV you should buy the best value of 2017. If you want to save in the first half of the year are also available TVs 2016. To learn more: When is the best moment to buy a TV?

Best TV £2500-3000

The high-end TVs in 2017 are 4K resolution, compatible with HDR10 and feature SmartTV. In this category we differentiate OLEDs from LCD-LEDs.
  • LG OLED B7 / C7: (8.5) is probably the most recommended TV if you have a high budget. The B7 and C7 are the same in picture quality. Ideal for any type of use and for any situation, both front and sides. The price in 55 inches over £3000.
  • Sony XE9305: (8.2) Best LCD-LED TV. Good picture quality and very good in HDR too. It is not a recommended TV to watch from the sides. About £200 cheaper than LG's OLED

£1500 55 inches

Without being the best have very good picture quality, its price about £1500 in 55 inches. Good choice for lovers of picture quality, with budget less than OLED. Compatibility supports HDR10 but not other formats.
  • Sony XE9005: (8) Model with direct LED, good uniformity and good contrast, to watch better front. Too expensive at the moment.
  • Samsung MU8000: (7.5) A TV to watch from the front with good contrast and ideal for gamers. Good overall.
  • Panasonic EX750: VA and 3D.

Mid-range £1000:

Televisions with more than enough picture quality for most users. They include Smart, 4K and are compatible with HDR, although its panel is something inferior: 8bits. Price of about £1000 in 55 inches.
  • Samsung MU6400: The Samsung midrange, every year gives an excellent result combining: performance, picture quality and price. They are televisions with panel VA so it is better to watch them from the front. Any of the series is recommended: MU6445, MU6505, ...
  • LG UJ670V: With IPS panel is more suitable for those with large family or sofas from the sides. Not recommending to watch movies in the dark.

The Televisions FullHD this 2017 are few, only reserved to the lower range. We recommend you visit our list with all FullHD TVs if you don't want to spend much for a TV.

Best 2017 LCD-LED TV

LCD-LED technology is the one offered by most televisions, known as LED TVs. This 2017 and already in 2016 are presented several OLED of different brands.


We can differentiate two groups of LED TV according to its panel: IPS vs VA.
Summarizing the IPS panels offer a greater viewing angle so they are recommended to watch from the front or from the sides, their black level is lower so they are not recommended to watch the TV in the dark. VA panels offer higher levels of blacks so they are good for viewing in dark or lighted halls, but better from the front.

The Best LCD-LED TVs of 2017

All major brands offer high-end models with this technology, but also offer OLEDs or QLEDs (in the case of Samsung).
The best TVs of each brand are: Sony XE9305, Samsung MU9000, LG SJ950V and Panasonic DX902B.
These models share several features in addition to LED technology. All are Smart, compatible with HDR 10bits panel and 4K resolution. All are available in 55 inches and its price is high.

The black level and viewing angle is the main difference from LG SJ950V, as its panel is IPS. It is a model very similar to the rest of the NanoCell series like the SJ850V. Color reproduction is good and is compatible with all HDR formats: HDR10, DolbyVision and HLG.

Panasonic maintains the 2016 DX902 as the best LCD-LED, still one of the best in the control of TV Zones offering blacks and brightness control of the best LCD. The panel is VA and is the only one with 3D.

Sony XE9305 is VA and enhances the model from the previous year with the new X1 Extreme processor. Compatible with HDR10 and future upgrade to DolbyVision.

The Samsung MU9000 is not the best Samsung of the year, which features QLED models but they are very expensive, we compare them (for their price) with OLEDs. This MU9000 is curved but the MU8000 is the same with flat screen. They are VA and offer a sufficiently bright image maintaining a good level of black. The worst is its viewing angle.

Price
The price for 55-58 inches is £2000-2500 depending on the store, offers etc, ...
The Sony is the most expensive, at least output, very close to the Samsung MU9000. The Panasonic as it has been a year for sale, its price has already stabilized and we do not think it goes much lower. If you go to watch the TV from the sides or you have large family the LG better because of its greater viewing angle. If you want to enjoy cinema in the dark we recommend the Sony XE9305 with good black and good color reproduction, although the brightness for HDR images is perhaps better the Samsung MU9000.

Samsung MU6400 vs MU7000

Conclusion

The price of the MU7000 is 30% higher, and that price difference is a lot of difference. We think the Samsung MU7000 is clearly superior in every way, except for its value for money. For most users, high quality HDR content is not important, nor will they notice significant differences for normal use, so we recommend saving and buying the Samsung MU6400. If you are freak of the image quality, you see HDR10 content or you have the PS4pro yes we recommend you to make a quality jump and buy the MU7000.

Panasonic EX700B: our review mid-range TV 2017

The Panasonic EX700 is a mid-range TV 2017. This TV is behind the EX750, the main difference, apart from the design, is the processor, somewhat lower than the Top models. In addition the EX780 includes 3D and this model does not. The Smart system is the same: myHomeScreen 2.0 and connectivity and compatibility are good, 4K resolution and compatible with HDR10 and HLG. The USB and HDMI ports are compatible with most formats. In picture quality we find a TV recommended for those who enjoy watching movies in the dark, thanks to its VA panel offers deep blacks. Not a recommended TV to watch from the sides. The maximum brightness level is not the best of this TV. The design of the base allows you to place pedestals across the TV.

Our opinion Panasonic EX750B (veredict):

Our opinion on the Panasonic EX700 is good as a mid-range TV, although its price is too high to recommend it, at least until it comes down a bit. It is a good TV to watch movies, sports, etc ... the level of brightness is something low to take advantage of the HDR. The inputlag is low so it is recommended for gamers. The design of the base seems to interest us for those who have problems of space in the furniture. It is a good for a lower price than it sells TV. We recommend you check the Samsung MU7000 before deciding on this TV.
