For that price, you can already buy the top branded TV’s- Sony, Samsung and LG. These offer durability and good after-sales service (you mentioned “bukid”, so the use conditions might be harder and access to service centers could be more difficult, so it’s best to stick with proven brands). You also mentioned TV Plus, so HD will do just fine, no need for 4K/UHD TV’s, plus they are more energy efficient, will cost less in electricity bill. Add a bit more and you’ll be able to buy the larger screens in 4k:UHD TV’s.

the panel on my lg 43uh6500 suddenly had lines a few months after the 2 yr warranty expired, malas ko talaga.

now i'm seriously considering the tcl 50p8us since it was being priced at ph19,995 cash sa sm appliance.

any other suggestions for 49-50in size even if i add another ph5k?  tia!

my cousin's 32” LG UHD Smart TV dont know the model has horizontal lines on the bottom flashing after 4yrs, sakit ata ng LG panel yung ganyan. Panny 49FX600 naman ng sister ko has been replaced by anson with same model din after 10mos. kc nagkaroon naman ng 3" vertical black band, panel issue din. with TCL I'm not sure din kung may mga issue ba sa panels nila, minsan kc may drawback din pag sobra mura, looking for tv din ako pero sa nababalitaan ko with new tv's nowadays lahat halos may issue, depende na lang talaga sa aftersales service at warranty ng brand.

^LG and Panasonic as you mentioned developed issues too so may drawback regardless kung mahal o mura.

I got 2 TCL's currently, 1 50in going 1 year next week and a 3-4 months old 65in as well. so far both are doing well naman and are heavily in use at least 9 hours a day.

i called western appliance head office yesterday since they provided info via viber groups that they are open but only for pick ups of the order.

they have the the tcl 50p8SUS for Ph25,000 cash

is the additional Ph5k worth the WCG feature over the 50p8?
is the color difference really that significant?
are there any other additional features in the p8S?

Agree.

My 49" samsung panel conked out just 26 mos, sayang lakpas sa 2 yr warranty.  We replaced the panel which had only 2 mos warranty and unfortunately nearing 4th mo, a single horizontal line now appears.  Naabutan lang lockdown kaya di mapuntahan ng technician.

Seems paying for 5 yrd warranty is alright when it comes to big screen tvs regardless of brand.

heads up!

abensons on-line currently has the prices for TCL as follows:

50A8US - Ph20,998

55A8US - Ph19,995

supposedly na ka sale until Apr30.
correct yan, mas mura ang 55in, i called them to reconfirm before placing my order.
they are also making deliveries to limited locations for metro manila.

decided on getting A8US instead of the P8S since the WCG feature will only show if the source is also WCG per cnet:

Trying to find comparison of HU9000 against current 4k models. I saw some nice prices at carousel for Samsung, LG and Sony hovering at 30k+ for these brands.

Mabilis kaya magdeliver ngayon? Di ba ECQ pa dito sa NCR?

My LG OLED TV conked out before ECQ. I bought it for 95k 3 years ago. Gott quoted 110k to replace the display panel which doesnt make sense since current price for similar size LG OLED now is still around 95k.

Mejo nadala na. I'm considering TCL, Hisense, or Devant na lang. Which brand would you recommend for 55" UHD TV?

Any particular model for Devant?

Kainis, I can't find any reviews for TCL 55 A8US. Interested pa naman since it's Android TV.

Speaking of Android TV, mejo OT, can I make it work like EVPad? I mean install streaming apps for Live TV and movies? If so, what applications are out there?

Thanks.

saw a8us sa abenson. its dim and has a very dull color kahit nala STORE mode. only worth getting from tcl if picture quality is ur priority is the C-series. ung ibang model kupas ang kulay.

yung devant hv03 quantum di ko pa nakita in person pero sa price bracket sya lang ata ang nagooffer ng quantum dots. kso d nga lang android TV.

Finally found an Abenson branch with TCL 55 A8US on stock.

Coming from an OLED TV, I can say that TCL is not that bad. PQ on the store display is not that good as compared to other brands, in fact even TCL C8 has way better PQ than the A8US.

But it's different story when I started using it. I'm satisfied with it considering its price. Done na muna with expensive TVs.

Wala pala stremio sa Google Playstore sa Android TV. Had to sideload Aptoide TV and downloaded stremio from there.

Now let's see how long this TV would last. Good to know din na it has 2 years warranty.

saw this while researching about the new c8

"It is believed that the penetration rate of quantum dot products will increase as the technology is transplanted from the high-end X series products to the C series products for the first time."

sorry for the late reply. seems you already made a decision :) hope you are enjoying it. 

honestly i'm not in the position to provide a review as my use is only limited to basic hd cable and netflix viewing with my connection at 5mpbs only :(  sometimes i use my son's ps3 to play some bd titles but that's it. if i had the time i could manage what you guys are doing like side loading updates, apps and run diagnostics but i don't.

i relied a lot on the the inputs from the other members here:

https://www.pinoydvd.com/index.php/topic,209991.210.html

obviously you will always have the lovers and haters of any particular brand. i made some other research as well.
so now i know there seems to be a trend with lg's panels going bust early (2-3yrs). with panels being manufactured by shared factories (OEMs) then it doesn't make sense to me to be tracking from which factory the panel is coming from to decide what to buy, its just too much hassle.

branded or china-made, if the odds are that something may go wrong after 2 yrs then i might as well gamble with something cheaper (with 2yr warranty also hehehe). of course the specifications will still be a major consideration.

for the lower brightness, i believe this is inherent to the panel type. i already knew about this VA vs IPS comparison. the brightness of my lg uh6500 hurt my eyes on dynamic setting which wifey prefers. so i usually use the movie setting on the both uh6500 and a8us also. i only go dynamic setting during noon time viewing. bear in mind my set is less about 1m away from the window so ambient lighting can get very bright during daytime.

for the PQ itself i find it quite good. however i still notice some judder but i'm not sure if this is because of the source (ps3), the hdmi cable or the set's 60hz refresh rate itself. i remember the uh6500 seemed to have a more fluid images but i could be wrong since it's 60hz also. i wish i had the time to really do the tests but i just have to accept that i pulled the trigger on this :)

lastly it seems the 55a8us is still on sale at abensons on-line @ ph19,998 (to be sure i'm not OT)
