Sorry for the short response, but I'd check out the LG LB7100 on sale right now. Might be what you're going for considering you'll have a gaming console hooked up to it and LG has great input lag response.

Ok guys looking for some help. I need to have a television in the next 2 days....

Currently I have a Sony HW40ES projector with a 118" Criterion in the media room. But, I need to put up a tv in the living room as ours went out and we need the normal every day television in additttion to the media room tv.

Looking at 65" or so
Budget, doesn't really matter but would prefer under $3000

I originally was going to get the Sony X850b in the 65" but I can't seem to find it here near me in stock and ordering wont get it here by Tuesday.

Then I thought ok I'll get the samsung 65" 7150, it's not 4k but I don't overly care about 4k to be honest. It would be nice but not a huge deal.

And the reviews keep listing it as a great tv.

well, I'm somewhat questioning myself and wondering if it's worth moving up in televisions to a 8550 or a 9000? I would honestly prefer not to spend $4k on a television when the 7150 is $1800.
I know the 9000 is pretty much future proof...or so they say.

thoughts?

Looking for help too. I am overwhelmed by the information and 4K transition info. I am moving into a new house, have prewired the family room for 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos, and need a new TV. Here are my requirements


1. Budget is under $2,500
2. Size is 65" to 70."
3. The room has a lot of windows so LCD\LED will probably work better.
4. I occasionally play video games (Xbox 1) so input lag must be good.
5. Don't care about smart features.
6. Don't care about sound quality.
7. 3D is not important but would be nice.
8. 4K is not important but would be nice.


Looks like the Vizio 2014 P70 is a great deal right now for $2,000. However, I am torn whether to opt for 4K over 3D as it is likely that the P70 can't display the highest quality picture from a future 4K Blu-ray player.

1. Budge under $2,000
2. Size 60-65”
3. No gaming, no need for 3D or smart apps
4. 4k would be ideal but not necessary

I think I have narrowed down the options to the following:
Samsung UN65H6400
Samsung UN65H7150
Vizio P652ui-B2 or P602ui-B3

With the Vizio 4k set being in the same price point as the Samsungs, is that the best option?

Open box Samsung un65h6203 +5yr warranty $693 out the door or new LG 65LB7100 $1079 2yr warranty out the door? I don't care about 3D just reliability and PQ.

Just purchased an LG 60LB7100 from BB...just waiting on delivery. Since then, I've been reading some reviews about this tv online and there is a bunch of talk about the dirty screen effect. How bad is it on this tv? Is it on all of them or certain panels? I am worried because I watch a lot of hockey. Some mentioned that the review was being hyper critical. The reviews I have read, mainly consumer reports gave it very high rankings.
Anyone with this TV want to chime in?

From what I've read Sammy 9000 is quite a bit better P.Q. wise than the 7xxx and 8xxx Sammy LCD's
OTOH the 7100 /8550 are supposed to be pretty decent

Hi everyone, I could really use some input here. I own a Sony KDL46W4100. I love the TV, but its a little small. The wife & I decided on a Sony because of past experiences, but in the past week we have gone through a 60W630B & a 65W950B. The 630B had banding issues that compounded with the poor viewing angle. The 950B, while it had great viewing angles and I love the picture quality on it, it has even worse banding on it. What are other options out there I should try?

  • Budget
My budget falls between $900 - $1700. While I prefer to stay on the lower end of that budget, I am willing to go up to find the right TV.
  • Seating distance
8ft - 9ft.
  • Size/placement limitations
The TV will be wall mounted. The absolute largest size that will fit is 65". Our preferred size is 60", but can go down to 55" if the best available TV only comes in that size.
  • Uses and sources
This TV will be in the main floor living area, off of the kitchen. I will be frequently watching TV/sports on it from moderate to extreme angles. The TV will have a set top box, Xbox One & PS3 attached to it. The TV will be used as follows: 80% Cable/Netflix, 15% Gaming, 5% Blu-ray movies. Zero interest in 3D.
  • Room lighting
A moderately dark room, but will rarely ever be pitch black. There will usually be a light on when watching the TV.

Trying to choose between Vizio M502i-b1 or Samsung UN48H6350

Between the Vizio M502i-b1 and the Samsung UN48H6350, the differences I see, on paper and from seeing a couple reviewa, is 2" size difference, the Vizio is FALD, and the Samsung looks like it has decent blacks as well. My concern about the FALD on such a budget-oriented TV is how well it's implemented. Are there errors in which zone goes dim, or doesn't go dim? Would I be able to see the different zones as I watch TV or a Blu-ray? Between these 2 models, which would have the darkest blacks? I currently have an LG 47LS4500, which is a 2012 model I believe. The blacks are awful, with lots of clouding. Deep blacks are almost blue, regardless of calibration.

My goal is to have dark blacks, no clouding, and good contrast. These 2 models are in my price range, and both seem to work great (except for the reviews on Best Buy that say the Vizio shuts itself off or takes over a minute to boot).

Hi everyone!
So it's time to get a fine 3D TV for my upcoming home theater.
1. Budget is about 1000$, May vary if needed. I am looking for the sweet spot of price/performance ratio-I don't have any extra cash to spend.
2. Seating distance is about 2.5 Meters.
3. Size/placement limitations: Is it possible to get a great TV with a width of 90cm? If not max 1 meter, Preferably 90cm since i need to place a table in the room, And it'll determine its size.
4. Uses and sources: Well, I am not quite sure what my setup will be like, But any suggestions from you great people will be appreciated: I plan on having a cheap HTPC becuase i understand that smart TVs are not that great. I'll connect the PC straight to the TV becuase i think my receiver doesn't support 3D bitstreaming (Yamaha RX-V565), And then the TV will output sound to the receiver. The receiver will output sound to a 5.1 system. The main use will be movies-I want the most immersive theater-like experience. I would really want the TV to be 3D and of the best quality, But the price should not be high again. BTW i live in Israel so not all of the TVs are available. I may also play games on this TV (Connect it to XBOX or something, Not quite sure now)
5. Room lighting: Well, There is a big window in front of the screen, And i also really hate reflective screens. It should not reflect like a mirror.

Thank you everyone!
Cheers

Stupid question. I'm upgrading from a 32lE5300 lg and am thinking of going with the 48H6350 Samsung. It says that the width is 42 inches. Does that mean bottom left to right past the bevel is 42 and bottom left to top right is 48inches? I wanna make sure it will fit where I want it and I only have a couple inches to spare. Putting it in a 44 inch hole. Also heard the 48 inch should have a Samsung panel instead of a third party one. Thanks.

I currently have a 40" Samsung LN-T4053H (circa 2007) and I'd like to upgrade to a 55". The picture's still good (although I do sometimes think that I'm starting to see some grayish bars in dark scenes), but want something bigger.

I generally sit at about a 45 degree angle and 7 -10 feet from the TV and am looking for something with a crisp display at that viewing angle. I've read so many reviews and really can't make my mind up. Would the Samsung UN55HU7250, H6350 or Vizio M series be good candidates? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.
