Good points:
I already own the previous years version of this tv and love it. This model is basically the same but with android smart features which do actually improve navigation etc (don't be put off with early reviews/forum comments about android issues, they are fixed) Styling is more or less perfect, its minimal and understated, just a big screen with little bezel and a simple but attractive stand. Picture quality is great, especially with low quality stuff (I have it hooked up to a pc which streams from various sources) hd looks amazing and sd looks better than on other screens I use. Netflix looks great, gaming is great too, it has relatively low lag for a tv, I don't play first person shooters at the moment but I've not noticed any ghosting etc. The size is s impressive when gaming, Rise of the tomb raider on maxed out settings for example (pc) with a screen of this size and quality is breathtaking when hanging off of a mountain, you may even get vertigo (I'm not sitting far away from it) if you are in the market for a 1080p tv (gaming in 4k is no man's land IMO at the moment) you cant go wrong with this model (or the 805/807 which are the same tv) the only problem will probably be lack of availability by the time you read this review. I would thoroughly recommend this tv for current gaming and hd tv watching, I doubt there is better for this price

Love this TV!!!

Before purchasing I did a lot of research and found the Android TV software was causing people a lot of trouble. But, I went ahead and trusted that the issues had been resolved with further updates/rollouts. And they had.

Wow - what a TV!! The picture is so clear and sharp, the Android software is responsive and I love that it picks up from where you left off (like if I had Netflix or Kodi open it starts from there). It's also very slick and stylish too with its thin frame and slim design.

The audio is fine, I don't hear any problems although it's supposed to be a weak area of the TV; no complaints from me.


So, a month today I purchased this TV and I've waited a little while on purpose before leaving a review. I'm glad I did, and I hope it helps future buyers!
Bad points:
The negative reviews online almost swayed me from buying this TV... but I ignored them and bought it anyway!

No regrets thus far.
