Prism+ E55 (formerly “Lousy Philips LCD TV”)
« on: January 28, 2020, 11:24 »
Philips TV is a brand to avoid. Backlight died just after 3 years. Panel was already changed once due to tennis ball sized bright spots.

Philips TV I had was probably a model designed to fail right after warranty ends. TV’s are not made to last like they used to.

Can’t beat Sony.
My 65” Sony’s display died just 6 months after purchase. Had to wait 2 weeks for it to be replaced.

My 65" Panasonic GX650 Android TV's picture quality is quite good. Colors very nice. But the TV's firmware is a bit wonky. Every once in a while, the TV forgets its TV channel settings and must be hard reset by switching off and on again to get back live TV. Never experience this in any other TVs that I have used before.

GX650 is considerably basic entry. As basic as possible, the more better.
However like what pschia brudder points out, don't expect Panasonic to be very swift and smooth on updates. But... should u encounter any hiccups like... no response, the simplest way is to cut the mains and reboot again.
