Watching sports
Netflix/Streaming

Room conditions:
Very bright during the day with floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights.
The TV will be mounted in front of a sectional couch; most of the sectional faces center or near-center to the TV, but part of the sectional seating is on the side of the TV

Thanks!
JU7100 for me as per rtings.

Seems JS7000 have judder issues and overall less features.

I would probably snag a 55JS7000 for myself for 675 though! (+warranty).

EDIT:

Looking for m60-C3 alternative (read to pikcup for $ 699).

Must do at least do Chroma 4:4:4 at 1080p.

No smaller than 48 inches.

Hello,


In the market for an LCD for our bedroom to replace our Samsung HLS5087WX/XAA.


1. Budget: Preferably under $450. Definitely no more than $600.
2. Seating distance: 8'-10'
3. Size/placement limitations: I think 50" is the sweet spot for us.
4. Uses and sources: DirecTV viewing mainly, Netflix here and there. Probably less than 15 hours a week of viewing.
5. Room lighting: 3 nice sized windows with late afternoon sun, but TV will mainly be used during dusk and dawn.


Considering:


  • TCL 50FS3800
  • Vizio M50-C1 (Stretch Consideration)
  • Vizio E50-C1
  • Hisense 50H7GB2

I'm not restricted to opinions on these 4. Please feel free to add others.



Thanks in advance.

My Main Setup

Display: Panasonic TC P60ST60 w/Acoustic Research ARRX18G XSight
Sound: Yamaha RX-V375 / Pioneer AJ SP-PK52FS 5.0 / SVS PB-1000 x 2
Sources: DirecTV HR44/200 / Xbox One 500GB w/Kinect & 4TB External / 1st Gen Chromecast / HP EliteBook 8460p (Win10)

Looking for a Budget - Mid grade 65" 4k under $1500.00

Wonder if anyone has knowledge of which of these three choices is the best for a 65-inch midrange LED 4k TV.

Sony XBR65X810C
Samsung UN65JU6500FXZO
Vizio M65-C1

All seem to be under $1500 right now which is my limit. If you have another choice to add, or one that is better, please
give me your input. I just started the search process about a week ago, so I'm still in the 'noob' phase.

Seating distance 10-12 feet
mounting will be above the fireplace
Room is on the dark side
FIOS set top Receiver
Blu Ray
PS4
Like to watch sports will mostly be watching through the FIOS set top box the majority of the time.

Take it for what it's worth, but I just asked Rtings.com for a suggestion with basically this same setup. Here was there reply (vizio M)

"Get the Vizio M. The picture is very good, it will look good in a dark room, and its viewing angle should be just wide enough for your space. Neither of the other two get bright enough to be a good recommendation for that much light"

Hoping for some help. I had pretty much made up my mind to buy a Samsung UN50JU7100. Before buying, I noticed that the Samsung UN48JU7500 had dropped in price and again I thought that I had found the set I wanted. I now see that the Samsung UN48JS8500 is the exact same price as the 7500 on Amazon so I'm leaning towards grabbing it instead. Out of the three which one should I buy with the following in mind-

Seating distance:

6 to 8 feet

Uses:
Gaming
Watching sports
Netflix

Room conditions:
Moderate to low light during the day and pretty dark at night (one window with a solid, dark blind). TV will sit on top of an entertainment center.

My number 1 priority is a great set for gaming which makes me lean towards the 7500 but from what I can tell the 8500 has a better picture and isn't that far off gaming wise. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

So I may be looking at having to get a new TV (my 56G886 JVC I think is biting the dust) and was considering these two - 55" XBR55X850C and the 65" XBR65X850C as well as the comparable Samsungs in this size in the JS8500 series but am curious as to the above coment on the Sonys.....are you saying quality wise the 55 850C is better than the 65 850c due to the lit difference?

No I wasn't - just pointing out that you can't make a decision on one parameter, such as edge lit vs. direct lit. Most all the new 2016 certified HDR10 sets are edge lit. The Samsung JS8500 you're considering is also edge lit. Yet, direct lighting should be better especially for local dimming but it doesn't always work out that way.

Thanks Dave, your insight here is greatly appreciated! Then outside of size I assume I wouldn't be missing anything going with the 55?

I'm moving soon as I just purchased a new house and I'm interested in replacing my older living room TV. So what TV would you recommend me purchasing? I'm interested in getting a 70 inch UHD/4K TV and I have a budget of up to $4,000 to spend. I'm looking for a TV that will still have amazing picture quality even for such a large size TV and something that won't give me any pixelation and or fuzziness issues that I'm seeing a lot with 30Hz and 60Hz HD TV's. Also, if you can recommend me some surround sound speakers or a sound bar to go along with the TV within the $4,000 budget, but if not its okay. Thanks for all the recommendations in advance!

The review at Rtings.com (linked below) is of the 55" Edge-lit model. They did not review the 65" Direct-lit model and therefore do not provide any direct comparison. You could read through the thread here on the 850C to get owner's perspectives. I personally prefer direct lit designs, especially for HDR, but you have to look at the TV yourself to judge how it looks to you.

Need help with a 65 inch 4K

Hi all I am looking to pick up a 65inch 4k tv for a family room. Viewing area is 12 to 15 feet and the room is moderately bright but not bad at all. We are looking for mostly sports, tv shows, Netflix/Amazon Prime. I am trying to stay around 1400 or less. Some that I am looking at are the following:

Hisense 65H7B2 - $999
Vizio M65-C1 - $1,349
Sharp Aquos LC-65UB30U $1,399
LG 65UF6800 $1,499

Hisense is a bit cheaper but cant tell if its worth saving 300 - 500, from what I can tell the Vizio looks to have some solid reviews, not sure about the LG or Sharp. Looks like LGs lower end sets might not be up to snuff compared to other brands.

I guess I could always go 60 inch but there is not much difference in price right now with the Vizio's at least. Any input is appreciated

Thanks!

65" Sony X850 vs 60" Samsung JS8000

Hello,
I'm trying to decided which 4k TV to buy. I don't really care about the 3D option. I'm more concerned with the judder, contrast and color depth.
From my understanding both of these are HDR ready. But does the Samsung JS8000 fall into the panel lottery? From what I have gathered the JS8000 is just the JS8500 without the 3D and 60".
Any input would be appreciated, if you have another TV in mind I'm open to all ears as well. Thanks in advance.
