Just bought an LG 55UN8000 TV from Anson's Trinoma last Monday for 34.8K straight charge. I think SRP was around 42k.

Was happy with the PQ and built in speakers coming from my 2015 dumb LG 4K TV. Until I noticed that it cannot decode DTS Audio! What a bummer!!!  >:( >:( >:( :'(

Yes Sir
Yung last year model nila ang kayang mag decode ng DTS
Until now nahahanap pa din ako ng UM7500. Kaso puros display na lang.
Thanks

New TCL models are out (listed prices are from Abenson website):

• QLED 55C715US - ₱31,998
• 55P717 - ₱21,990

The C715US is quite interesting as it already has Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and proprietary calibration software called IPQ Engine.  And all this is running on Android Pie (9.0) through a quad-core processor and a tri-core GPU.  For tv's in this price range, this one has the best proc+GPU combo.  So far, this is also the only tv in the PH under ₱35k which has Dolby Vision support.  This also undercuts current Samsung QLED prices by a wide margin.

Meanwhile, it seems the new TCL 65" models are still forthcoming in the PH.

Probably the reason why the price difference from 55" to 65" models is nearly the price of the 50" version.  8)

Sony KD-55X8000G. 2019 model for 26.5K with 2 years Sony Phil warranty,

Last year this was around 43K.

Is this a good buy compared to the newer TCL QLED's?

Nag improve naba ang TCL ngayon sa qled nila? Durability?

Actually i'm not sure if this is the first time that TCL produced QLED's. Durability is the issue that i'm worried about even if it has a 2 year warranty. We previously had a TCL during the 1080p era and it only lasted 1,5 years before it conked out.  It was fixed and soon after the warranty expired the panel got busted.

I've had, and still have, a very good experience with Skyworth. I have 2 units which are still chugging along without issues.

Are the new 4k skyworths worth the shot nowadays? Any good deals?

In the market now for a new 55". Netflix certified ready is a must.

bought a Skyworth UB50550 Model last July. Price just under 20k. Instead of risking a non tested Cocoa (which is also Skyworth)

4K is nice. It has built in 5.1 Surround sound, it could be better but it works for me and my family.

It is a Smart/Internet TV. I would have wanted though to have an Android TV as no apps could be installed there is pre built Browser, Youtube, Prime Video and Netflix (that often exits out).

Contemplating now that I could have invested on an Android TV but now just looking at 4k media players (Roku or Xiaomi)

The Xiaomi 65" Mi LED TV (L65M5-5ASP) is currently at about ₱39k right now online.  It's also known as the Mi TV 4S.

It's a 2020 model sporting a Cortex-A55 quad core proc, Mali 470 gpu, and 2 GB of RAM. Supports HDR10+, and comes with Android TV (this one's supposedly upgradable to Google TV when it comes out) + voice commands.  It's an IPS panel.

The bonus for Xiaomi fans is that this can also supposedly work as a Smart Hub for your Xiaomi Home equipment and toys.

anyone saw an actual unit of this? i read kasi ung 55" mi tv 4s has a delta error of 6!! lol and no gamma settings to correct and terrible ghosting. maybe this 75" is better panel and well calibrated? if so cheapest na toh for a 75" kapresyo ng ACE saka HARI that still uses vga port alongside hdmi lol.

brightness around 220nits sa 55" not sure sa 75"

We bought in to the hype last year with the newer cheap LED's using "popular" panels. Lemme tell you, I regretted buying it blindly based on reviews here. My 3 year old top tier branded but entry level led still had better image quality than this 2020 "reinvented" brand.
There's usually a reason why it will cost lower, mediocre image processing chip, poorer construction, limited inputs, laggy software (even with latest android tv). A Xiaomi tv box is 3x faster than the built in software of the TV we bought. I heard a similar comment from another user here of this depressing lag.
20K+ is still 20K+. So always base your purchase by seeing it yourself and doing side by sides. Try out the UI, check the video settings that you can tweak, lower the brightness or backlight to see if the picture quality is still good.
If a Samsung, LG or a Sony is more expensive by only a small amount, audition to see if the price difference can really justify the savings you seek. Otherwise you may end up like me, unsatisfied and regretful.

kaya siguro always better to bring a usb with a familiar video to test sa shop, to compare if the upgrade will indeed be an upgrade.. a friend of mine bought a chinese ata o filipino brand pero pag uwi di nya din nagustuhan yung quality. i calibrated n lang the white balance and contrast level to match her old sony ones. cheap brand are known to be very aggressive sa contrast and sharpness presets nila.

Very true. Specially for workhorse appliances that you will use again and again (TV, AC, Ref, Washing Machine etc).  Make a mistake in purchase and it will remind you of your mistake again and again....

YMMV.

Case in point: everyone on PDVD that got burned by the Samsung plasmas.

Rumor has it the local Samsung office decided to shift to 1yr warranties because of this. Smart play, but I certainly won't be buying a Samsung TV anytime soon. ;)

Dami choices, what brands/models suggests nyo na 4k models? Looking at several 50-55" models, anything bigger medyo off budget na, my current one na nagka issue na is an LG, happy with it's performance but I'm open to other brands
