Refunding a faulty TV tomorrow - was a 40" Samsung 1080p tv. Had three in a row, all with vertical black shadows visible.

Will have £550 from that, and willing to go up to about ~£800 in total. Main requirements are 40" - 42", 1080p, and good to play games on that will last through the life cycle of the XBone and ps4!

If you can provide links as well for anything you think is awesome, it would be much appreciated! Never had an issue with Samsun before, but after this batch I am not su sure about them.

Also, can someone clarify LED vs LCD for me? Tech noob...

I have a 42" Philips LCD tv. Got it for less than £350. I was thinking about getting a Samsung LED tv, because of the more vibrant colours and thin screen, but now I'll wait till my 42" dies out.

They're both the same as far as the screen tech goes except for the backlighting.

LCD uses fluorescent tube backlighting that's slower to respond to onscreen changes, and has inferior color.

LED uses LED strips or array panels for backlighting, responds fastest to onscreen changes, runs cooler, uses less electricity, and has pure white color to let the screen show proper color ranges.

Direct Array backlighting is superior to Edge Lit backlighting for bigger screens, edge lit is only acceptable on screens 27 inches or smaller.
