Hey all! Great thread and just what I need right now. I've come to AVS for advice on my last two HDTV's and it's time to upgrade around xmas/boxing day.

I'm coming from a 40" Samsung 240hz smart-ish TV from about 4 years ago. It's still running but we want to move it into the bedroom and go a bit bigger with the main set.

1. Budget: $900-1100 (CDN)
2. Seating Distance: 9-10 feet
3. Size/Placement: 50-55" on a table.
4. Uses and Sources: Pretty even mix of TV/Sports (Hockey games) , Bluray, PC/PS4 gaming.
5. Room Lighting: Pretty dim livingroom. No direct sunlight on it at any time.

I am not interested in 3D or 4K at all. I do enjoy having a built in DLNA player as I run a server in the house but I could forgo it if I had to for better picture quality. I'm somewhat concerned about input lag but my current set is 80ms even in game mode so as long as it's an improvement I'm not too worried.

I'd probably prefer to stay with Samsung or maybe a Sony but I'm open to other brands if they have the quality. I'd say picture quality is my main focus.

Thanks all!

LG 55LB6100 vs Vizio M522i vs Vizio E550i

Debating between the LG 55LB6100 vs Vizio M522i vs Vizio E550i.

I understand that some folks prefer the E series over the M, and the cost savings makes it attractive. Otherwise, the M series Vizio and the LG are the same price and seem to be the same spec.

Is there a difference in general build quality between LG vs Vizio? Is one of these accepted to be a better set?

Samsung un65H7150 or Vizio M702i-B3

Hey Guys, I am in the process of figuring out what set to buy. I've been reading so much information lately my head is starting to swim . I do have it narrowed down to these two models and would appreciate input from any of you as to what you would pick. They are both priced around the same where I am and I have read favorable reviews on both. Btw, I love this forum, it's been a wealth of info!

Spent the afternoon at Best Buy.... so many choices...

Here's what I'm looking at....

Budget: ~$2500

Size: 60"-65"

Placement: Eye-Level while sitting on a couch

Seating Distance: 10'

Uses: Sports, Movies, and daughters play Wii U

Source: Cablevision cable

I came away considering 3 alternatives:

1. Sony XBR65X850B (~$2500)
2. Samsung UN65HU8550FXZA (~$3000)
3. Samsung UN60H7150AFXZA (~$1300)

I would appreciate a recommendation or the suggestion of a better alternative.

Thanks everyone.

Basement almost done, time to buy soon!

Finishing off the basement. Gonna be done in a few weeks, and planning on the Superbowl sales for a time frame to purchase (darn wife won't let me buy during Black Friday madness--too soon!!) my new set. Looking for some real world feed back from you, the user/experts.

Budget -- $2000-$2500

Size: 70+"

Placement: Wall with tilt mount.

Seating Distance: appx. 10'

Uses: Movies (blu-ray and Netflix/Amazon Prime), TV (gaming will be on a separate 40" set)

Source: Over the Air Antenna, Blu-Ray, Apple TV

Here are some models I have it narrowed down to:

Sharp LC-70TQ15U (seen on sale for under $2000)
Samsung UN75H6350 or UN75H6300
LG 70LB7100
Sony KDL70W850B

SO, big question is, my priority is PICTURE QUALITY, not 3D (which would be a perk but not needed) or any Smart Features. That said, for the money, am I better off finding a 65" 4K model from one of these companies in the $2500 range? I do want something 70+ in the long run, but this TV will have to last me at least 5+ years.

Thanks for any advice!

Looking at purchasing a TV from costco asap. Models I am considering are both Samsung 65" sets.

H6300 - $1170
H6203 - $990

I had also considered the higher end H7100 for $1480, but figured I didn't want to pour that much money into a dying 1080p technology. Looking for something to hold me over till 4k and hopefully led come down to reasonable levels for 60"+ sizes.

I realize the main differences between the 2 models is faster processor for a smoother smart tv experience, nicer looks, and 2 more hdmi inputs, but not sure that is worth the $180 price difference? 2 HDMI inputs isn't great, but I will be using a receiver so not a big deal (though I guess resale value is hurt somewhat). I was actually able to compare all 3 models mentioned at a local hhgregg today. Unfortunately, they only had some college football showing. Watching that though, I didn't notice a huge difference between any of the models. The higher refresh rate and the dimming tech on the 7150 didn't produce a drastic improvement in my opinion. Wish I could have seen some blu ray footage, but that wasn't a possibility.

Any thoughts appreciated! Thanks

Looking for 70" 4K w/ 3D

I am looking for a 70" 4K TV with active 3D support. I prefer a matte finish or good anti-glare support as the TV will be facing large windows. I'm hoping to get a deal but am willing to look up to $4K though under $3K strongly preferred. I don't like the washed-out look of Sharps. I did look at the 70" Visio P-Series and really liked the image quality of the ones in the stores. I'd snatch that up if it had any 3D support at all.

Any suggestions on both great TVs and great values with these constraints?

Thanks
