    There is only a very small number of panel manufacturers, so pretty much any cheap chinese tv is going to have a screen manufactured by a very large company. Even Sony and Panasonic don't make their own panels from hat I have read. In short I don't think I'd take much notice of who makes the panel. It is probably just the cheapest panel they could find anyway.

    Hey Tim,

    So I was also in a similar situation and here are my findings

    First I purchased a 41" 4K (non Smart) TV for $299 pre-order. This one did not have an LG panel. Watching TV in non-HD channels was unbearable, awful. So I returned it.

    I exchanged it for a 43" Full HD Smart TV with an LG panel. I think it was $450 delivered. The results was MUCH better. I could not be happier with the TV. Its great and works well with the amp that I have two way HDMI Arc. However, the "Smart TV" bit of the TV is SO SLOW that its almost non-usable, almost. But in my case, I have an external media centre so that did not worry me no do I use this feature.

    So basically, if you are going to match normal TV, don't get a cheap 4K TV as its only optimised for HD and 4K pictures. The cheap Full HD TV has both great normal and HD viewing.

    Hope this helps.
