The only Samsung on that list I could really recommend over the Sony sets is the Samsung UN55H7150.
Any thought regarding the 55X850B with the Triluminos display vs. the X800B in terms of better picture quality (for ~$300)?

12-16ft

no limitations, really want and leaning towards a 70" set. Could possibly be convinced to buy a 65", but no smaller. Decently large basement room, want the "wow factor" of a large tv for watching live sports.

4. Uses and sources
80% of the time watching cable TV. Sports a lot of the time and it's very important the tv handles watching live sports well.
Other 20% of the time split up between Netflix, XBox one, and the occasional Blu ray.

5. Room lighting
Basement with no natural light. Could watch with lights on and lights off depending.


At this point i'd say i'm leaning towards the 70" version of the Vizio M series tv.
3d not important at all.
smart tv features not important.
Not that these can't be included but they are not necessarily important in the decision.

Don't need to buy the TV for a few weeks to a month.
Any help and recommendations are greatly appreciated, thanks!

edit: Currently have a 47 inch LG7600 from a few years ago that to my eye is a very nice looking tv.
Vizio m70-c3 or Sony 70X850B if you can find one. I tend to to prefer the Sony motion handling.

1. Budget - Under $1000
2. Seating distance - 6' - 10'
3. Size/placement limitations - N/A
4. Uses and sources - TV, Blu-Ray, Streaming (Netflix, Amazon Instant, etc.) and PS4/Xbox One/Wii U gaming.
5. Room lighting - End-table lamps (two of them)
6. Angle - Mostly straight view.

Thank you very much!
Vizio M55-C2 for 4K/UHD. Sony 55W800C for 1080p.

If you want something bigger the Vizio E65-C3 is also worth considering.

Off the top of my head I am only aware of three differences, 3D, Triluminous Panel and black bezel. The Triluminous panel gives you wide color gamut support but doesn't otherwise have a dramatic impact on the picture.

Hard to say whether it is worth $300 or not but those are the differences.

Thank you for the suggestions!!

EDIT: Would you recommend the SHARP Aquos LC-55UB30U or the LG 55UF6800? They're VERY slightly above my price range but if they're truly worth it I may be able to splurge a little. Thanks a lot for your help!

Toshiba 40RV525U
Onkyo TX-NR609
Polk Audio CS1 - Center
Paradigm Reference Studio 20 v.2 - Front
Velodyne DPS-10 - Sub
Advent - Rears
Sony Playstation 3 - Blu Ray

I wouldn't actually. I have not been impressed with any of this years Sharp sets that I have seen so far. The only LG set I have seen that I would consider is the substantially outside of your budget UF9500. Even then, there are better sets at the same price from competitors.

Ah okay, great. Thank you for the feedback! That Sony TV you suggested looks pretty good. I'm deciding between that and the Vizio you had suggested; just a matter if I want to "future-proof" wit a 4K TV or go for a better 1080p display.

Thank you so much again!

Just installed a Sharp 70uh, and while straight on it looks fine, the picture appears to wash away when on the side. By side I mean 3 to 4' to the side and anywhere from 3-10' back.

Looking for help on what to exchange for: Samsung 65JS8500, 65JU7100, Sony 70x850B, Sony 65x850c.

Originally wanted 70", but I'm open to 65 for a better picture than what I currently have.


I am also open to a 70" 1080p tv if it has a good picture from most angles and is around $1500.

Most TVs with VA panels will start to see a strong color and contrast shift somewhere between 15-20 degrees off center. All of the TVs you have listed have VA panels so I would check them out in the store before buying. Of the TVs you listed the JS8500 is definitely the best.

You don't state any of your usage patters but generally I would take a look at the LG 65UF9500. It will have lower contrast than the panels above but will have much better viewing angles. Another IPS option is the Sony 65X900C.

Just to be totally clear, the Samsung JS8500 is a better TV than either of the ones I recommended but I have a feeling you will be just as dissatisfied with it as the Sharp if viewing angles are a priority.

Mostly watching NFL, Satellite TV, and Xbox One. We sit 12' - 15' away.


Would the LG 70UF7700 perform similiarly to the 65UF9500?
