Which tv to purchase lg 55uf9500 or samsung un55js850dfxza

The lg is twice the price, but is it a considerably better picture/tv?

It'll be going in a living room which gets considerable light during the day in case that makes a difference.

Direct bright light destroys all PQ

You need to address that issue first, using shades/etc. The twice as expensive HDTV won't solve that problem.

As noted. Fix the lighting first.

8 bit or 10 bit

I'd go for the Samsung as it supports a 10bit display versus the LG which is only 8bit.

Doesnt mean PQ would necessarily be better, nor would it address the bright light in the viewing space.

If you have any other useful input I am all ears though Wink

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
