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.
