I use the curved JU7500 40" as my main monitor - it's fantastic.
Full 4K 60hz 4:4:4 support. You need an nVidia 9-series card to go with it.

As far as TV size, ALWAYS go as big as you can afford. The bigger the better. My 70" is too dang small. Looking to get a Sharp 80 UH30 when they come out.

HTPC | 12TB NAS | DENON 2809ci | Sharp 70
Klipsch RF-7II,RC-64II,CDT-5650-CII | SVS SB-2000 x2

Hi - all given this size of the room below.. I don't have the actually size of the Fire place with me.. and the brightness of the room.. looking at a 65LED or above- what would you recommend to mount on the fire place we don't want to keep the TV where it is currently at- looking at the js8500 samsung- or may just go with a non 4k set. and would that mounting have to much neck strain..

Hi everyone, first time poster requesting unusual advice.

I have a brightly lit family room with Glass Sliding Doors all around. I would like to do a setup with 4 TVs forming a video wall. Seating distance is about 10'.
Bezel size is a consideration for this application and so is picture quality. TVs will be used to watch regular TV shows and movies. No gaming or any other special needs.
I can use 55" or 60" TVs in the space to form the video wall and not look too overwhelming in the room.
I have been looking at the 2015 Vizio M or the Samsung UN H7150 for this application based on reviews I have been reading online.
One is a 4k set and the other is a 1080P. Any suggestions regarding these 2 units or some other options to consider?
Thanks!

Fred

Hello,
Looking to replace my Samsung 63" plasma, the 7000 series. It's starting to get the pink bars on a full white screen, plus I need something bigger. Bottom line though I can wait if the 'right" TV for me is just around the corner. Unfortunately projection is not an option. My setup:
1. Budget - $10k, although I would much prefer to spend less.
2. Seating distance - 15 feet. Room really won't allow for me to sit closer.
3. Size/placement limitations - None, except I have to wall mount.
4. Uses and sources - 50/50 Fios TV and an Oppo 103D.
5. Room lighting - I can control light in the room.

I have my eyes set on the Samsung 85" 8550, but those are at the top of my price range and don't seem to have a newer model coming. Plus they don't look like they will support the newer specs coming out. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Putty

I'll be sitting 2.5-3 feet from it, so I assume that I should get a smaller size (40-43") screen. But I wonder if something like Sony's 48.5" 830c would be too big. I don't want to turn my head from side to side as I program. I suppose I could wall mount it and move my desk back a foot or two.

Thanks for your thoughts.

So I bought a 65LB5200, I'm fairly satisfied with the TV except that it has a faulty HDMI port. So I have the option to exchange for the same thing or pay $250 more for a 65LB6300. Main differences I see are an increased refresh rate, IPS panel, and Smart functions. I could care less about the smart functions. I've noticed a little lag in games but not horrible, the semigloss screen isn't too reflective, non hd programming looks like ass however, blu Rays look great as well as games. Sometimes I get an occasional frame skip or slowdown no matter the source. My set doesn't suffer from extreme black light bleed which seems to be the luck of the draw with the 65LB5200.

Anybody here have these TVs and care to comment? I need the accidental warranty microcenter offers so basically that's the place I have to choose from and these are the only 2 65" under $1000. I know that's not a huge budget and you get what you pay for, I don't need the best but want something with low input lag, low motion blur, decent blacks, limited back light bleed and last a few years.

The room is medium on natural light, none really directly on the screen, I sit 10ft away, and will be using it for a Roku 3, PS4/Xbox One/PS3/360/Wii U

Advice? Keep what I have or upgrade to the 65LB6300 when I exchange? Thanks!

If you didn't compare them side by side you probably would not know what you were missing.

As for 65" for 75" my recommendation would be to grab some painters tape and throw it on the wall in both TV sizes where you are planning to put the TV. Than go back to your sitting position and decide what you prefer.


There are precious few TVs that are capable of being used as a good 4K monitor this year. Mot, including the Sony, are not capable of 4K resolutions at 60Hz.

For programming I like using a pair of large 16x10 monitors in portrait orientation.


Thank you for your help. I think you're right. The JU7100 will probably do the trick. Its a really good tv and probably plenty for my non-movie TV. Is not having HDR a big deal though?

Maybe? Probably? Definitely?

HDR is a big deal in terms of technology. If it offers for more realistic contrast than we have seen in TVs in the past.

HDR is a big deal for movies. Movies are probably the first place we will see HDR implemented and studios are already starting to commit to this.

I believe HDR will also become common in games in the future.

How prevalent HDR will be in broadcast TV is unclear to me.

The challenge is you can look at every feature of a TV and have this same conversation. It is more about how important it is to you and how much you are willing to spend.

65" TV suggestions for around $1200

Just got a new house and 1st things 1st....I need a TV for the family room and just looking for something to watch Netflix and very light TV watching. The main couch is about is about 16 feet from where the TV will be mounted. As soon as work slows down I will post pics of the basement and my ideas of dedicated Theater Room and bar, but for now just a TV and would appreciate any feed back. Since this is basic/light watching I was trying to keep it around $1200 or less. Here are the two I have my eye on:

* E65-C3 Vizio 65" ($1000)
http://www.costco.com/Vizio-65%22-Cl...100142465.html
* UN65H6350 Samsung 65" ($1200)
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN65H6...ords=UN65H6350

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
Steve

Hi guys,

I'm trying to decide whether I should purchase the Sony 55x850c, currently at $1600 or perhaps spend a bit more and go with the Samsung 8500 which is now at $1999.

I am leaning towards the Sony, and I like the Android TV much better than the Tizen OS. But from what I've read the 8500 has a better picture overall.

Otherwise, I could always just wait too.

I definitely want to stick to 55" and $2k or less. Must be flat. Mostly TV watching with occasional movies.

Suggestions?

- Klipsch RF-82 ii, RC-62 ii, RS-52 ii
- Klipsch RW-12D
- Sony HW50es
- Firehawk G3
- Denon 2113
