    Hi Friends,

    Trust you are doing great.

    I am looking to buy a 46"/55" inch LED from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia ( i currently live here). I might bring this to India down the line ( i am aware of 36% tax).

    1. Budget. 4000 - 5000 (SAR, i.e. 1 SAR = 16 INR)

    I have browsed available models here from major electronic showrooms. Have mentioned few of the prices below -

    1. Samsung 55" F75000 - 7000 SAR
    2. Samsung 46" F7500 - 4500 SAR
    3. Samsung 55" F6400 - 5000 SAR
    4. Samsung 46" F6400 - 3300
    5. Sharp 60 LE 631 - 5000 SAR
    6. Sony W600B 48" - 3700 SAR.
    7. Chinese Models 55" FHD - 2400

    Please suggest which model should i look for & from which brand.

    p.s. - I bought a Samsung plasma 51F5500 which went bad after 1 year & 3 month. so i am confused whether to buy Samsung or not (though its PQ is amazing)

    I have a question around customs, if in future i bring this LED to India & i furnish a bill with lesser amount, then will i be charged 36% on that bill or custom people refer to some other prices ?

    Thanks in advance !!
    Peace.

    Wow you can get your own Chinese model for that kind of money.
    I like Chinese models, they are hot.

    JD - Haha, why not. But again, the PQ was good but if you keep it side by side with samsung or sony, you feel the difference clearly. Also, Sharp one was heavy, so tomorrow if decide to take it back to India, it will be an issue.

    Thunderer - Trust me, they ar not bad given such cheap prices !!

    However, i want to know which models in sony & Lg should i compare with Samsung's 55"F6400 ?

    I would go with the Sammy considering that the panel is made by them.

    However I would wait for @Rajapraveen to comment further.

    If not the Sharp, then the 55" 6400 would be the next option. What is the viewing distance in your living room? I have about 8 feet, and the 46 is just right, though I could go a tad bigger. :D

    Same here buddy, around 8 feet...and u 55" is huge :)
    Though my samsung plasma died after 1 year only...but still there's something about Samsung displays.. Don't k ow if its the kind of videos they play in showrooms or the extra brightness... But they sire do look attractive...
