Need 4K TV 55" Budget 50K-60K

55" VU model has 400 nits of brightness and according to this Techiebeez video, 65" is better than 55". Anything else I should keep in mind before I go?
Toshiba U7980 has 700 nits peak brightness. IMO 400nits is acceptable in budget TV(s). To get > 1000 nits peak brightness one will have to shell out more money on SONY/Samsung TV(s). And with that you can't compare the HDR performance of high-end TV with low budget ones.
Toshiba is pretty solid on features and cost but only downside is the OS and After Sales Service.

If you notice Deep Blacks and Pop-out colors then the TV has Local Dimming and almost all FALD has this Local Dimming feature.

nokia is launching a newer 60hz 4k tv please look into this also might be correct for ur price
Thanks for your suggestion!
I thought I will update this post once everything is done here but I will update now. I have already received the TV, LG UP8000, total amount for this model is coming to 58K. I wanted a TV with good after sales service and something decent in the budget.
TV is yet to be installed since I do not have the table yet. I will update this post again with how happy or disappointed I am with my purchase once the installation is complete.

Do post review, actually i too was looking for a 55 inch tv( Here ), but due to shifting and then contracting virus, it had to be postponed. now i will buy during diwali sales from offline.

Also, if possible, please post a picture of wall mount( if you got in the box) and if keeping on table, the picture of backside, Since i will be mounting on wall, I want to know the thickness of unit, so i could add a wall socket behind it to hide the cables.

Hi everyone!!

First I will start with thanking everyone for all their suggestions in buying a 4k TV.
I came very close to buying VU Cinema Action but ended by buying LG UP8000 because I could not find much of picture quality difference but noticed more washed colors on VU's VA panel when watching from slightly side instead of middle.

TV was finally installed today after anxiously waiting for 1 week post TV delivery because I did not had table. Today the guy came and installed the TV. I already have 3 years warranty and I ended up buying 2 more years of warranty worth Rs.7788(including GST). So total expense on this TV came to 58K+8K=67K.

TV picture quality is good. I was worried that it might not look as good as it was in the showroom. But it looks fine. Even in 4K, the object in the video was not as sharp, (a slight blur or something similar around the object edges) as I would like it to be but I guess this is what I would get in this budget. I have used the TV so far in decent lit room and did not notice any reflection from TV.

I downloaded some 4K movies in PC to check how good it will look on the TV. Though I have not seen full movie but just 1-2 mins clip and I can say I am satisfied with the quality. I will watch some movie only by weekend.
OTT like Netflix, Hotstar looks just Ok, slight pixelated content here and there but nothing too ugly. Yet to check Prime. I will watch football match on this weekend on Hotstar and update this post further on how good it looks under which picture setting.
Yet to check how good videos are played through External HDD or USB.

I have downloaded LG Smart Share program from LG website and sharing PC contents over Wifi to TV, that is how I played 4K movie on TV. Movie format is in mkv so subtitles were not picked up by LG TV. Any media player suggestion on webos??

Please tell me how to block ads on Youtube on webOS. Ublock origin is such a blessing on desktop browsers.
Found this but don't know how to block URLs from modem/router. Please direct me towards some guide.

WebOS being closed source cant be modified easily, so instead prefer using vanced on phone and then casting it. The urls given to be blocked are of LG and will not block youtube ads. Still if you want to block them, you need to check your router model online and check for this functionality. If it doesnt have it you can use Pi-Hole on a pi and add them to blacklist.

edit: Did they give you magic remote alongwith?

Don't I need to run Pi-Hole from another standalone computer like Raspberry-Pi? For now I will use the mobile casting for youtube. Thanks for the idea.

I got this remote with TV.

:lol: That is true for all VA panels.

Buy portable media stick and use the youtube app from it. Amazon has lot of options available.

Samsung QLED Q70A did not had VU Cinema Action kind of washed colors from the side. Sadly it was way out of my budget.

I am looking into PI-Hole as of now. Pi-hole comes with it own complications since I do not have knowledge of DHCP, DNS and all network related things I still have not finalized. Primary usage is to block ads. I don't need much from TV right now. If I find Pi-hole to be complex then I will buy Fire Stick.

Just saw new episode on TV of My Hero Academia on Netflix. The anime looks great on this TV I must say.
