Looking for a Garage TV with vesa mount

Budget: less than $500

Sources: antenna, chromecast, firestick

Size: 40-43"

Resolution: 1080p

Some audio out (RCA or toslink preferred)

prefer dumb tv. I figure smart tv features age more quickly than the tv

Being a nerd I'd like as good a quality picture as possible considering the budget but it may not be so critical in the garage. Moving around a bit good viewing angles may be important.

Looking for recommendations.

Budget: $1500 my friend has the LG Oled and is trying to sway me to spend $500 more for the 55 on sale at BestBuy this week. I would prefer not to spend the extra $500 as that would be stretching it for me. I can do it but it would probably make me cry. LOL

Sources: Verizon Fios, Nvidia Shield, Bose SoundTouch 300

Size: Due to my entertainment center I can only go up to 60". I currently have Samsung UN55ES6900. I was looking at the Sammy UN60KS8000FXZ on sale at BestBuy for $1500 as I wouldn't mind getting the biggest TV that would fit but not at the expense of getting a much better product at 55 inch.

Distance: 8-10ft

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Look at the 55" Sony 900E for $1,500 at Best Buy.

My LG 47LE8500 just died and I need to replace it. I was hoping I could make it last longer for OLED to come down in price but I guess not.

Budget: $1700

Seating Distance: 10ft

Sources: Netflix, Computer.

MIN width: 55"

This TV *needs* to have support for both HDR10 and Dolby Vision.

I am going to head over to Best Buy after work today to check them out in person. I just went online and they have the 60KS8000 on sale for $1300 and the 55KS8000 on sale for $1k. I have ruled out the LG Oled as I just don't want to spend that much money at this time. I saw a couple of pings on the 60KS due to back panel separation but also saw people who stated they had no issues. I am drawn to this one due to the increased screen size but I don't want to make a mistake because of that.

I checked Rtings and the recommend the ks8000 over the Sony900E but they had the 55 inch model of the Sammy.

I'll decide once I see these in person. So glad I found this forum.

Don't know what you looked at but Rtings now rates the Sony XBR55X900E higher than the Samsung UN55JS9000, which is the next model up from the KS8000. Go look for yourself.

Rtings.com Best by-size 55-inch

The JS9000 is the 2015 model vs the KS8000 being the 2016 model, but the difference between the 8000 and 9000 is almost non existent in their respective years. Betty if you can find a KS8000 in your area it's a fantastic TV at a great price, but stocks are pretty limited now as the 2017 models are rolling in.

Yes, you're right! Odd that they removed the 2016 "KS" but left the 2015 "JS". But, looking a their 2017 Sony 900E review vs. the 2016 Samsung KS8000 review, they do rate the Sony 900E better. Both are good TVs, but I'd always go for the current year model all things being close to equal.

They are indeed both good TVs but Betty said she was looking for a deal, last I saw the 55" ks8000 was going for $999, if she can find one that's hard to pass up and the differences from last year to this year are pretty negligible.

Looking for a 55 to 60 in tv under 1500.

All content is streamed via Nvidia Shield. Living room is kinda bright but all watching is done in evenings and at night so light is either dim or black.

Would you pick the 60 in ks8000 or 55in Sony 900e?

If you like Samsung you're much better off with last years UN55KS8000.

Personally, I would pick the Sony 900E - PQ over 5 inches IMO.

Went to get the Sony but they had open box 60in ks8000 for under 1k. Taking it back today...The Blooming and edge bleed on bottom is disgraceful

Looking to buy a TV for our basement which actually fairly well lit during the day as it is a walkout basement:

1. Budget $1500-$2800

2. Seating Distance 7-13 ft -- Main seating area is about 7-8 feet away, but my wife and I have exercise equipment behind the seating area so we'd like to have a decent/adequate view compared to our old Panasonic Plasma 720p that is currently being used.

3. Size -- 65"

4. Usage -- Nearly 90% Console Gaming and Sports -- Looking for good input lag and motion handling

I have been considering jumping on one of the last Samsung 65KS8500 at my local Best Buy based on some internet research but wanted to get feedback as to whether I should consider other alternatives based upon the preferences above.

Thanks in advance!

I need a new TV, please help me find the proper one.

$1000 (or EUR)
Seat distance - 8'
Input - Netflix, HBO Go, Plex, DLNA
I need 3 HDMI inputs
1 USB is required, 2 would be nice
1080p, so I will probably go for 55'

Could be important - I'm in Europe, so the models may be different. The prices definitely are

Thanks

Willing to pay more for a reliable brand/technology since previous TV lasted 12 years. Does't have to videophile screen quality but ant something that can handle action and has uniform display.
I really don't think you're being very sensible here. The implication is you would like the new TV to last 12, yet you mention a preference for $600 to $1,000 price range and even keep 1080p in the mix. That makes no sense. For a TV that will last, get the best 4K/HDR set in your $1,500 budget. What's an extra $500 spent now extrapolated over 12 years? Think about that. I recommend you go look at the Sony XBR55X900E, it's the best TV in your budget.

Debating between a 55KS8000 at $1k or a 55X900E at $1.5k. This set will likely be for only 2-4 years, as I'll probably upgrade again once HDMI 2.1 is established and OLED panel tech has matured more, so spending less now makes sense. Main usage will be watching TV (through xfinity) and movies, gaming on Xbox one (scorpio in the future) and switch, and watching a lot of football/basketball. Never watch in a completely dark room. My living room gets very bright and has a big bay window opposite of the TV so reflections are an issue. Here are my perceived advantages:

KS8000
+Price
+Input Lag (21ms vs 34ms on the 900e)
+Gets brighter (good for my living room)
+Better at handling reflections with the moth eye coating
+Better colors?

X900E
+Design/Build Quality and consistency
+Motion (good for sports)
+Upscaling (from what i understand this is better than on the samsung so better for watching cable through xfinity?)

If you had to predict the next price drop for the x500e when would it be and how much would it drop by? I can wait a bit if it will approach 1k, but ideally not all the way until black Friday

The 2016 Samsung 65KS8500 is a good set, but like all VA panels has a limited viewing angle. As long as your viewing position is directly in front, no problem. If there is viewing from off angles, you could consider an IPS panel set especially since the basement is well lit. Your old Panasonic Plasma has a virtually unlimited viewing angle, VA panel sets degrade at 20 degrees off angle, and IPS panel set at about 35 degrees. If an IPS panel fits your needs, the 2016 Sony XBR-65X850D is one you might look at. If a VA panel is OK, the 2017 Sony XBR65X900E is the top choice in your price range IMO.

I wouldn't count on the 900E dropping to $1K before black Friday. If $1K is your absolute limit, grab the KS8000 before they are all gone.

1k isn't my limit, I'd be spending up to 2k on a set if I didn't anticipate wanting to upgrade again in a few years. So it's really 1k KS8000 vs the 900e at the cheapest i can get it within a month or two, which very well may be 1.5k

I think my request is specific enough, so I am not going to bother with specifics. What is the best VA Full HD panel I can get right now? The Sony W630B?

Budget 2k - 2.5k

Prefered Size: 65-75"

Seating: 8-10 feet

Desire: Best bang for the buck

Asking for a buddy remodeling his basement, he is seeking a new large LCD that does not completely break the bank. By no means does he need to max the budget, so if something good can be had below 2k, that's fine too.

He should look at the 65" Sony XBR65X900E.

the sony 900e ....or the samsung ks8000(800D AT COSTCO) is on sale right now.... both are good bang for buck tv's.. the Sony is probably a little better but the Samsung can be had right now for $1500 and it's a steal at that price..

Ive been lurking long enough,

I may be getting my 75 inch 940d replaced due to a horrible ghosting/trailing issue

With samsung just releasing their new QLED tvs Im wondering if it would be worth it to get the 75 inch Q7F over the 75 inch KS9000.

I liked the ks9000 when i saw it in the store, and the manager put it on hold for me since he was aware of what was going on with my sony (so i still have that option available), and I just saw the Q7F today, and it looked great (different store) but unfortunately they didnt have ks9000 on display anywhere where I could look at both of them at the same time, and its been two weeks since i saw the ks9000 so I cant remember well enough to make a decision of which looked better.

For a TV that will last, get the best 4K/HDR set in your $1,500 budget. What's an extra $500 spent now extrapolated over 12 years? Think about that. I recommend you go look at the Sony XBR55X900E, it's the best TV in your budget.
I should have not posted that over my phone, too many typos in that message that caused confusion and I was hoping to convince the person to spend more but they decided a budget 500-700 is about what they feel comfortable spending . I am going to post a new one with an updated budget and less typos

Help with suggestions for a new TV to replace a 12 year old Samsung DLP that recently stopped working. I posted this before but the person changed the budget requirement and I put a lot of typos so here it's updated and retyped.

Budget: 500-700 range (updated) I may be able to get the person go a bit above 700 but not by much.

Seat distance 6-15' depending where viewing.

Size: 55-65" 60 would be ideal but I see a lot of makers are either doing 55 or 65 in that size range now.

Uses: Spectrum cable, blu-ray, netflix/amazon. Viewing of tv shows, Baseball and Football games, and movies.

Smart TV: Yes

1080 or 4k: Would be nice to future proof with 4k.

Inputs - At least 3 hdmi

Also looking for a brand that is reliable since previous TV lasted 12 years and I know some brands seem to have better track records than others. The person was viewing a DLP that did a good job overall but I think a good lcd tv won't disappoint them. Thanks!

I think the Vizio M55 would be a good option. It is a 4K 120Hz 55" HDR TV with a 64 zone FALD backlight. Its current price is $699. It was picked as the best budget/mid price 55" 4K TV by rtings and CNET. I have the P-series, it's slightly fancier brother, and it has a beautiful picture.
