As the title suggests , I am clueless on what to do next. The Mi Q1 75 inch is one of the best value for money TV one can buy and I have nothing to complain against Mi service who promptly attended all the earlier issues and replaced 3 TVs without any fuss. However with the fourth one going kaput , I have lost patience .

I have already asked for a refund and hopefully that should get approved. Now being exposed to such a huge and bright display , I am sure I have to make compromises when I look at different brands at same price range . Need suggestion on below

- Sony X90H or Samsung Frame 65 inch (X90J is out of my budget).
- Anything else which comes close .
- Should I ask for a replacement again instead of refund

I would not want to go below 65 inch. While I got the Mi at <1.1L , I am fine to extend my budget to 1.3L . I only watch OTT content . No DTH stuff, no gaming . Need a large and bright display. Viewing distance 8-10 feet

I am seeing some festive offers with extended 3 years warranty on Sony and Samsung TVs . Anybody who has recently bought something similar could share their experience and price please.

Sony X90H seems to be the best next choice for you - better than Samsung Frame which does not have Dolby Vision, has lower brightness than X90H and does not have FALD either.

Just curious, what were the issues with Mi Q1 75? Pretty surprised that 4 units have gone bad.

I am in a similar boat as you as well, however I am only looking for 75 inch models. I am getting Samsung Frame 2020 (75 inches) at Reliance Digital for around Rs. 2 lakhs. I am confused between that and the Mi Q1 75. Hisense is also planning to launch 75U80G around Diwali, so I'm waiting for that as well.

All these with 4 different units or just with the parts replaced?

That's a lot of issues and not minor ones. Are these known issues with this model? Are you getting sealed TV as replacements or refurbished ones? I feel you should escalate this to the higher authorities and get a properly tested unit.

I know I am asking an obvious question...have you checked for any electrical issues at your place?

I recently faced issues with two TVs of mine (not Xiaomi) - display problems on one and a burnt main board on the other. Apparently the underground power cable that fed power to my home got damaged due to horizontal drilling done by a contractor associated with the power company. The neutral line was getting fed about 80volts due to the damage to the cable. No other equipment failed though. This problem went undetected for few months due to faulty RCCB. We stumbled on this problem only after replacing the RCCB. The new RCCB simply refused to stay put. It took lot of effort to trace the source of the problem as the leakage on neutral line was dependent on how wet the ground was.

You've gambled with them 4 times! Get your money back and move on. 1.2lacs isn't pocket change.

There are several good options from LG, Sony. A couple to mention are the Sony KD-75XH9005 or X90H. Not sure if its sold in India. The former is a top drawer LCD LED TV.

Interesting. 220 and 80 v , PD of 140 v for your whole house.
Surprising that the ACs in your house were not creating a fuss.

For the op - Increase your budget a bit and get a 65" oled from lg or Sony.
You will really enjoy content on apple tv , Netflix and Disney.

I see a lot of people suggesting 65 inches tvs... I for one don't think you should step down in size as that is far more important IMHO compared to picture quality which might see 10 20% jump... I would suggest escalating to mi and getting a good piece as they have done the replacement so many times, they look like they care to make things right
