50U7A is identical in features to 55 & 65 U7A models, the only difference being that bigger screen size has more dimming zones which is the case in every LED TV with dimmable zones.

Regarding buying used LED TVs, well it depends on the usage of the first owner. LED TVs have a Backlight or Edge light which has a usage life in hours like any other light bulb and it's luminance reduces with usage. So, it depends, on how much it was used, if it was a display showroom TV which was running on showcase mode at full blast for hours everyday for 1.5 years, I wouldn't buy it but if it was in a household with moderate usage and it seems fine to your eye on tests, then it might be worthwhile if the price is right. What is the asking price if I may ask.

So run some tests, a good basic test is a white background, then light grey then dark grey background to check for dirty screen effect, lightbleed, irregular dimming, dead pixels and effective nits/peak brightness. The older the LED TV gets, the nits drop and the screens also develop a dirty screen effect. These TVs have only two major components, Backlight and Motherboard, so check all inputs as well. Anyways, best of luck.
Thank you for the detailed reply. The TV has been used in a home setting for 1.5 years. Condition physically looks great. Unfortunately the seller is a thousand miles away (quite literally) so I can personally inspect the unit. I'll send you details regarding demand via PM.

Hey Simon, what's the software that enables showing of custom resolutions in games?
Hi Pasha, the software to create custom resolutions that show up in games and are selectable as native resolutions is CRU (Custom Resolution Utility)

I am planning to buy Samsung RU 7100 58". I need your advice in this regard. Moreover, will this specific model will have 1080p 120hz? TIA.
I haven't reviewed this model yet but the good thing about mainstream models is that you can find tons of reviews online, I trust rtings.com coz they are very thorough and consistent in their testing and reviews, they have tested this model, you can read the full review here https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/ru7100

As far as the refresh rate, it only has 60Hz max refresh rate on all resolutions till 2160p. Hope it helps, best of luck in your purchase.

Input Lag is tested by instruments called Lag Testers like this video, or we rely on the numbers from anyone who has tested it with these instruments, sadly though, with these Pakistan only models, it's hard to find reviews or more specifications.

    In that case, I should probably avoid the Mi Note 10 Lite, its older than the other two. Barely any good phones in 60K that isn't samsung. A71 is a good deal too but that is a year old as well.

    That's a good point. Realme 7 Pro has a AMOLED display, which is why its attractive though I've no idea about Realmes software support unlike Xiaomi.
    Yeah, these phones often have attractive features and seem like great value (most of them are) upfront, but if you want continued software updates so the phone lasts long, most of them don't live up to that promise.
