Most TVs above 27” will automatically be smart. A lot of it is personal preference. I like Samsung TVs and appliances myself but they can get more expensive than a vizio or some other Walmart brand. A lot of people also say that in the 4k range, the average person cannot tell the difference between TVs outside of brand design.

Be aware...

...of OLED screen burn in.
LG makes the OLED panels that most all the manufacturers use, including Sony & Samsung.
Our 2017 65" LG has it.
LG states that they have updated the software on the newer models that prevent it from happening...some new owners disagree.

DSteed, check out this tread about swapping out TV’s / upsizing:

https://www.airforums.com/forums/f45...ng-174824.html

We picked up a Samsung 32” 1080p Smart TV for the lounge area on our 27’ GT. Will move the original 28” to the bedroom and take the bedroom’s 24” to the house for the kitchen. Everyone wins!

I have just ordered a Samsung 32" QLED Television. This is a new model as QLED's have not been available this small until now. We have had a 55" QLED for over a year now. The picture quality is excellent. It has spoiled us for other televisions. We have wanted one for Lucy (our 25FB) for some time, but up until now the smallest QLED was 48"

The actual television measurements are 28.5" wide by 18.8" tall. We will just be able to squeeze it in Lucy's TV mounting area. This television is currently on special for Black Friday for $397.99 at both Best Buy and on Amazon.

Moosetags, I just upgraded my TV to that one. Fits in the classic spot perfect but the rear mounting points changed on the TV from the 5000 series that came from the factory. Had to move the wall mount up about 2 inches to get the TV centered in the cut out again.

Had to uninstall the fridge to get wall anchors in etc. it was a larger project than I thought but not difficult as least. Good luck with install! The TV is great.

We went with a wall mount Lenovo thinkvision monitor X1. 27” 4k monitor. Plugged into Apple TV. Also can be removed from its wall mount and used on dinette as an actual monitor. Thunderbolt 3 plug in connection for Apple folks. Fits perfect in our AS23D Serenity. Huge weight savings with multi-tasking as a bonus.

32" Samsung Smart TV - really nice set and it was around $250 at Best Buy. Also fits directly on the bracket where our 28" LG came off on our 28 International.
