Could it be the video being stretched to fit the extra pixels on the 4K tv hence the bad picture quality

Maybe, but I see something like 4k upscaling on LG, sony and samsung TVs, guess the Hisense does’t have it, I used the same 4k and 1080p videos so I saw no reason for it to look better on a 1080 screen and bad on a 4K.

This must be the Sony Bravia 50" KDL-50W660F currently retailing at 53,995/-, nice choice

For those looking for Sony TVs i’ll occasionally be posting a list of the ones currently in circulation in Kenya together with their specs and Prices. These are the ones i checked out yesterday while driving around when the lights were off.

Samsung and LG enthusiasts can also post their list in this thread to help guyz compare and make a decision while shopping for a TV.

NB: (Prices are from Anisuma and Carrefour as at 09-May-2020, If you get a place cheaper than the list then by all means take the bargain).

I recently, just before lockdown, stumbled on an LG TV 4k at your budget. I bought it since I had, for a long time, been waiting for 4K TVs to come down in price. It’s a good buy.

:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: that’s sth people will always fail to address. Sony, Samsung and LG in their own league then the rest far somewhere. People are always quick to point out price, brand and claim the top three are just names but close comparison has proven they are not just names. Picture quality is noticeably superior in the three.

I have never even up to now seen the essence of a curved TV.

Wait! Is there a 4K TV that’s not smart?

I think this is just marketing gimmick. Electronics don’t die coz of power surge only. TV guard will protect against power surge but not against any other misstep like poor quality of electronic components in the TV (am not by any chance suggesting that’s the case with synix).
One other thing, confirm the HDMI arc actually works or it’s just there by name.

Completely agree, surge protectors that are commonly sold for sockets are unnecessary, especially to a refrigerator. If one needs a surge protector, he or she should invest in commercial stuff that protect the whole house.

This is an even better idea but as long as you rent, you may not be in a position to install it to the entire house. Maybe from sockets.
