    I plan to buy a brand new tv.32 or 43 inch?
    1080p or 720p?
    Do you have any suggestion for me and why?
    I did not want smart tv.
    I bought my PS3 in 2020 so I'm not sure when I will buy PS4.
    Should I buy a television that will support it too?
    thank you

    Not sure, but if you are interested in gaming you should buy a TV compatible with the features that are going to have the next generation of consoles
    Just incase, even if you are not interested in buying them at release date... eventually one of that consoles could "fall in your hands" (because a present or because you found one for cheap or whatever)
    If that happens you are going to regret having a TV not compatible with "the next generation fireworks" :D

    Btw, a couple of days ago i did read samsung is going to stop manufacturing LCD TV's inmediatly... and they are going to move on to a new panel technology (WTFQOLED or something) so are going to be a bit more expensives

    NEC/TOKIN wants to know your location
    30inch 4K Panels are non-existent,768/1080p only go to 32inch, 4K Panels starts at 43inch and above, and good $ony 4K Screens start only with 49inch and above, be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for it, and 4K for a PlayStation3 and PlayStation4 its kinda usless and a waste of money, unless you have devices that supports it like a PS4 Pro or the TV itself has a good upscaler, which from $ony, only the X1 Engine will get the job done, but thoes too start at the high-tier/premium models, which fetch 1k upwards, you can get a high-tier QLED LG 4K/HDR SmartTV at dimensions of 49inch for half of what's $ony's offering.

    $ony's TVs aren't bad, but they got greedy, they're TVs don't carry the brand recognition it used to carry with the Trinitrons, nowadays they're panels are expensive and don't add or give any benefits, they charge a Premium for inferior specifications on what's the competition is offering, this is why $ony's TVs aren't recommended, unless you are looking to go Hardcore into OLED Panels like the Bravia A1s, which its one of the more beautiful TVs i saw, and definitely worth the 2K Price-Tag, but other than that, they're "Premium" Price doesn't justify for any Entry-Level TVs, they still charge you 500quid for a 32' 768p panel in 2020,which for that price gets you a QLED Class 4K/HDR Panel from they're competitors.

    At the time i bought my samsung TV, some years ago the "high tier" samsung models was starting from 40"
    And mine is the most cheaper at size 40" of the "high tier" series at the time i bought it :D
    It was 400 rupees or so because i bought it in a shop that was giving me a more relliable warranty, the cheapest price in internet was 350 rupees or so

    *the rupees is a reference to the zelda games btw https://zelda.gamepedia.com/Rupee
    I really mean euros :P

    Do you want 1080p? Or is 720p sufficient?
    Whatever your answer is, that's your answer.

    You might aswell get a 1080p, you wont save a whole lot getting a 720p now in 2020, and 1080p is way better.

    Older models are so cheap these days if you don't need 4k.

    720p - £249 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-KDL32WE613BU-32-Inch-X-Reality-streamlined/dp/B06WD4S2Z8/
    1080p - £300 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Bravia-KDL-32WD751-Freeview-Playback/dp/B01EXI378Q/


    Very cheap 1080p probably crap - £200 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Toshiba-32LL3A63DB-32-Inch-TV-Freeview/dp/B07SJ8N7FW/

    Those are not proper smart TVs but they do have Netflix and Youtube which work ok if you are stuck.

    It is true that most PS3 game run at 720p.
    So buying 1080p for a PS3 is useless ?

    Right now I have : 26-Inch TheaterWide® Television 26HF84
    • HD TheatreWide™ Modes (480i,480p/1080i)
    • HDSC 1080i/540p HD-Compatible Display

    But I have to set PS3 output to 420p, because If I set it to 720p or 1080, the XMB and all game look too much small.
    It's impossible to play.
    I really need to buy a new television because I have to let my toshiba open 24h/24h.
    Because If I close it, I'M not sure that she will reopen :(

    Unless you buy a 4K gaming monitor. 27" is the best size for these before the price skyrockets.

    About £250 for a 27", 144Hz 4K IPS or TN monitor is about the target price for decent one of these, then it will also do you for PC and high spec consoles such as PS4 and up.

    I was mentioning solely for TVs, monitors were not invited the party, also why not to add a 5.5inch 4K IPS 120Hz as well?

    Gaming monitors are better value for money, better specs and a good alternative to shelling out for a TV that doesn't even measure upto a gaming monitor's spec' at a lower price. PLus you can can plug anything into them that you can a TV more or less.

    I was was mainly saying this because you said 4K panels below 32" are non existent which is complete BS.

    I never said they didn't, might help if you read what I put instead of just jumping in. And considering this is my PC monitor:

    https://www.scan.co.uk/products/27-...0x2160-144hz-oc-g-sync-4ms-50k1-1000cd-m-vesa

    would make no sense to say they didn't.

    BTW the monitor you posted is a pile of crap and not worth it money for gaming as it's not even meant to be used for gaming, its a reference monitor that is used in video production.

    I was on about a monitor posted by someone else in the post above my last post, its a media and video production monitor, not for gaming.

    That TV is not too shabby for the price of it, I assume the .ca on the URL means you live in Canada.

    IF all you want is a good 1080p 60Hz HDTV for playing game and stuff on I would also recommend looking for a PROSCAN HDTV, they are also very good very for money and have a great display. They are a US branded manufacturer you can find on Amazon.com and I think there is a 47" HDTV on there at the minute for about the same price, or cheaper than the 43" you posted a link to. Thought the IPS panel on that TV might give a more crisp and clean looking colours.

    I personally have a PROSCAN 40" LED HDTV in the UK and it was well worth the £129.99 I paid for it. I use it for my PS3's etc and as a secondary display for my gaming PC for watching YT, movies from my media PC and browsing the web and the 4K monitor I linked for gaming which is really expensive and you can find cheap ones that are about the same.

    you're not always so good on catching irony, huh? :D

    ...Btw unfortunately there isn't any TV that really worth the money nowadays.

    I know pretty well current LCDs and OLEDs. Even having unlimited money, If I'd have to replace my HD-CRT I'd buy a second hand 2013 Plasma Tv, Panasonic or Samsung (Pioneer Kuro seems to be generally more robust, but they've a worst motion resolution than latest sammy/Pana Plasmas).

    I suggested a 4k HDR Oled to a friend, 'cause he wanted a new Tv. Oled is the best nowadays, but current panels are actually crap if you're used to real quality.
    Let's say, I'd pay at max 500$ a 55" SONY AG9, and only if it'd be impossible to find a good condition-second hand Plasma.
