I guess not enough people notice the screen quality of an uncalibrated screen for it to be worth the cost - I'd presume they'd have to add some extra process to the end of the production line that scans the screen while playing demo content and changes the settings accordingly, which would be a large R&D and tooling cost as it would need to be very adaptive to account for what I would image would be a large range of ways the panel's settings could be off. Hell, going by the fact most screen manufacturers now seem to now say the don't consider a 'dead pixel' to be a returnable issue until you have 3 or more I bet they don't want to run the possibility that the screens can't get up to 'calibrated quality', and would rather ship them uncalibrated so the yield rate stays higher.

I think it’s because the store lighting is usually so bright that the TVs are set to max vivid etc so they’ll catch the eyes of people passing by. Once you get it home, the home environment is much less bright.
I’m hoping to upgrade our main tv in the next year. We have a 2014 Samsung curved 65” 4k tv which, whilst great and all, doesn’t have HDR and only has 1x4k HDMI port.
Looking at the LG C1, CX, or G1 at the mo, but do like the Sony which has the sound coming from the screen itself (A90J). Watch a few of the tv review YT Digital Trends videos presented by Caleb Denison and he seems to be knowledgable and informative on loads of things tv related
Hello! In the market for a new 42-ish inch TV that will do us for a couple of years till we buy a house. Main stipulation is that it come with a centralised stand(rather than those flimsy bastard legs that seem to have become the norm) and isn't likely to be knocked over at the drop of the hat because I'm a clumsy bastard. I've had an LG TV for the last thirteen years so my inclination is to stick with them, but does anyone have any recommendations for best TV, lowest price?

What’s your budget? The LG 43 Nanocell that I got earlier this year has been very good so far, a huge step up from a 10 year old 40 odd inch Sharp set anyway! About £430 on Curry’s.
Sony has announced an added benefit for those purchasing their new BRAVIA XR™ televisions in 2021. Called "BRAVIA CORE™", it allows owners to stream from the largest IMAX® Enhanced collection anywhere, free of charge for a limited time. Sony are the first in the industry to offer Pure Stream™ technology, meaning you get the highest possible picture streaming quality at up to 80 Mbps, delivering a lossless 4K UHD HDR picture with IMAX® Enhanced. Selected titles feature an expanded aspect ratio, digitally remastered and optimized, so you can see the full scale and scope of the picture, for the next level of immersive picture in your living room.
A80J, A84J, X95J, X90J and X94J gets you 5 movie credits & 12 months unlimited streaming, while the A90J or Z9J series get 10 movie credits & 24 months unlimited streaming.
To access Pure Stream™ at 30Mbps, you must have a minimum internet speed of 43Mbps. To access the highest quality Pure Stream™ available at 80Mbps you must have a minimum internet speed of 115Mbps.
Only Virgin Media would get me that sort of internet speed in my area.

Interesting that OLED has finally been ousted from the overall top spot.
