1) The "Model" you have:
Sony BRAVIA KDL-55W950B 55" Ultimate 3D Smart LED-LCD TV

2) What convinced you to purchase this particular model:
Always wanted that Sony TV in the house, highest-end available in stock at the time, through store recommendation as well.

3) What you like best about your LCD:
Size of the TV, crisp picture quality, solid connectivity options, integration with other components.

4) What you don't like about your LCD:
Black levels could be a bit deeper outside of the "sweet spot" (although the initial firmware upgrade took care of it for the most part), not a 4K UHDTV (not an XBR), "Flick" remote could actually be a bit more responsive.

5) What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had:
A direct settings menu button, so I wouldn't have to travel through the "Home" Screen first, those big side speakers that the X900B has (although the HT-XT1 soundstand is great for making up for it).

6) What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD:
I would certainly make better panel choices depending on how high-end the TV is. LG panels for the low-end, Sharp for the mid-range, and Samsung for the high-end/XBR range would be my suggestion. Albeit the LG panel is not AS bad in the W950B as it would be in some others models.

7) What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD:
Just how thin the bezel really is on the TV, how glossy the screen is, and just how big the screen is sitting in my bedroom.
Most certainly was built with the master bedroom in mind, imo.

8) What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD:
Well, the PS3 I hooked up to it worked to start, then it seemed like the PS3 must have dropped the display connection to it, and the TV was complaining about not being able to display the INPUT. Perhaps it must be a bad HDMI cable, not sure, though. Other than that, haven't noticed any uniformity or significant black level issues with this, surprisingly. Nice overall set.

9) Do you really think that today's "Prices" are worth it:
Absolutely, if one is looking for quality in their 1080p or 4K TV, you should expect to pay a little more for that quality...albeit a lot of those TVs are on great sales now that they are rounding them up and ridding themselves of the 2014 models.

10) Any additional information that you wish to add:
I know there are those "naysayer" reviewers that claim that this TV suffers from those black level and uniformity issues, and I wish to tell them, please update your firmware on the TV, it WILL make a difference. I did so, and while the screen might not have SQUID INK black, it does, however, appear darker than the "out of the box" setting before I updated it. Also, it does seem to dazzle with SDTV signals, watching some direct cable on it, I really love what quality comes forth with it. I really have nothing too negative to say about it. It's not an XBR, nor 4K UHDTV, but for a 1080p, this seems to have more pros than cons.

Living Room: Samsung UN46A750 46" ToC 1080p, Yamaha HTC-6160 AV Receiver, JBL Cinema 480 5.1 Speakers, Magnavox HDD/DVD Recorder, Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HD.
Master Bedroom: Sony KDL-55W950B 55" 1080p, Sony HT-XT1 Soundbar, Xbox One, Scientific Atlanta 8300HD
Basement: Toshiba 32TL515U 32" 1080p 3DTV, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Bose Companion II Series 2 2.1 Speakers, Panasonic DMR-EZ28 DVD Recorder

1. The "Model" you have.
LG 65UB9500 - 65" UHD 4K SMART 3D LED TV W/ WEBOS (Replaced Vizio XVT553SV 55" LED 1080p 240Hz Smart)

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Picture, Sound (Harmon-Kardon speakers built-in) and price point (and the fact that it's not a Vizio)

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Picture, Picture, Picture. Holy moly is this thing beautiful.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Not digging the "magic" remote so much. If they'd made it a little bigger with a real number pad and a few more physical buttons I'd be happier.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
The ability to output audio to headphones while still using internal speakers. My father has slight hearing loss so he bought a set of "TV Ears" wireless headphones to use when he's visiting. So far I haven't been able to get these to work and still have the audio on for everyone else.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Maybe add a traditional remote along with the magic remote, and a firmware fix for the audio issue above.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Seamless integration to my home network, it immediately picked up my XBMC server, and it's able to play huge mkv files over WiFi without missing a beat. Additionally, the 2D-3D conversion is incredible. We watched Winter X-Games and football with it on and you really feel like you're in the action.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
When I added some new files to my XBMC server, I had to restart the server for the TV to show the new files. Should be an option to refresh or rescan the directory.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Prices at the new model year are outrageous. As much as a decent used car is crazy. I specifically waited until after CES 2015 to pick up a 2014 model at half the original MSRP.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

Cool

1. Sony KDL-55w800B

2. It was on sale at Futureshop and it had excellent reviews from almost every website I visited; best sub-$1000 55" LED TV I could find

3. Size, picture quality and thinness

4. There are too many settings and adjustments; I have to wait 30-40 seconds after turning on the TV before I can access the menu settings

5. I'm a beginner TV enthusiast so I'm not sure how to answer this one

6. I would suggest to make it easier to unbox the TV. I had to grip both sides of the TV fairly hard to lift it out of the styrofoam. It's only after reading the manual do I understand that this is bad for the TV.

7. The consistent picture quality

8. ECO mode seriously dims the TV and it's in a diff. part of the menu to turn off

9. Considering what you get for $1000, I think today's prices are amazing

10. Have a great day everyone!

New Samsung 65HU8550 owner here. Looks like I lost the panel lottery with a QS04, but it still looks great to my eye. And since I won't be using it for PC gaming, and I'll never know the difference anyway.

I just purchased a Element 55 inch 4K HD LED from Target...clearing them here in Canada as they are cloasing.
My issue is that when watching a hockey game, there is a treak behind the players when they are moving fast. (Just like when the Flash runs on the TV show)
What could be causing this?
Thanks all

Tell me the following:

1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung UN50JU650DFXZA

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
I tried the HU6840 and had problems with flashlighting on the back panel so this was a newer model, had less issues in reviews. Also can rename HDMI inputs so that's also a plus.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Instant on is great, Wifi built in, and DLNA servers viewable as a source.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
It doesn't support samsung's new smart remote.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
I wish it supported the new samsung smart remote. Also wished that you could set favorites on the quick smart hub software like i could on the 6840. Also wish it was a true 120hz so I could get more frames out of PC games that I sometimes play on it.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Advertise it as 60hz native, quit lying to your customers about its refresh rate being 120 with Clear Motion Rates.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Didn't come with a IR remote extender.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
None yet, had issues with the 6840 so I got this isntead.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Yes, I purchased a Sony LCD about 8 years ago for $300 more and it didn't have all the features that this one has.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
I've tried the UN50HU6840 twice. Bought it at sam's club and had problems with the back light flash lighting in the corners. Thought it was a fluke on the first one so I returned it and got the same one. It was 55" and 100 bucks cheaper than my current UN50JU650DFXZA. But i'd rather have no problems with the TV.

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Good price for size and picture quality.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Picture Quality.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
The sound is not the greatest.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Wish it had a headphone Jack.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Cut it out with the panel lottery.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
How well it works as a PC monitor.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
None so far

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
For the most part yes. A TV like this would have cost a lot more a few years ago. However, since it is not a smart TV it should probably be priced a little lower.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Be careful when buying that your getting one with a Samsung Panel. The version that has them is TS01.

1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung 55JU7500

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Flat panel review sites and my TV repair guy who favours Sammys and LG. This model is an excellent balance between price and quality.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Outstanding display, ease of operation, unique styling, low input lag, simplified remote.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Nothing so far that hasn't been corrected via settings.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Perhaps a custom mode setting for the user.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Too early to tell.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Great picture right out of the box. Darker blacks and better contrast than my previous plasma set.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
Screen darkened occasionally in Standard mode but okay now after an Eco mode reset. Removed the dreaded "soap opera effect" with Auto Motion, though it seems to actually help when displaying 3D and sporting events.

9. Do you really think that today's "Prices" are worth it.
In my case yes, since the set was below dealer's cost. Lots of good bargains this time of year.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
As with any major purchase, do your research before taking the plunge.

Replaced my sony 34 xbr 960 today with a sony 65 xbr 950b. I'm hoping to get a similar quality picture with the benefit of greatly increased size. The 34xbr goes to my daughter and son-in-law and it's still going strong. Now, to load the 200 lb. monster on the moving dolly and place the 65 on it's stand. Will have to wait for help from my son-in-law.

1. The "Model" you have.
V2016 Vizio P65

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Combination of attractive price, great impressions from other users on here, and the attentive customer service.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
The picture quality is incredible, and so far I'm digging the tablet remote and think it really is the way forward.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Little glitchy on the software side, and I got a dud as well . Will be having it exchanged.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Honestly none, could always use more zones, etc. but for the price it is perfect.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
I would include a much more extensive manual on the tablet at least, there seems to be very little information about the TV at the moment.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Watching Dolby Vision for the first time was honestly a mindblowing experience.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
Well there is a yellow cloud on black screens, but it seems this was a defective unit and I will have it replaced.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
For this TV? Of course.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
BUY THIS TV

1. The "Model" you have.
LG 55UF6450

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
The price of a last years model 4k LED, and my love for my other LG 55LM7600 3D 1080p LED. And LG's picture quality.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
It's a 4kUHD tv for the price of a HD 1080p tv.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Nothting yet.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
I wish it was a 240 refresh instead of a 120.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
I would include a much more extensive manual.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
The speed of the using the smart features. My other smart tv's are relatively slow compared to this one.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
None so far. Only owned this for a few weeks.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
For this TV? Of course. (55" 4k for $650.00 at BJ's wholesale club)

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
If you want a 55" or above, you pretty much are going to have the biggest selection in 4k now. And this one was priced like a 1080p.

Post Sony 55X850C

1. The "Model" you have.
Sony 55X850C

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
I was looking for a really good 1080P set to replace a working Panasonic 50" 1080P Plasma. It appears from reading the entire internet that you cannot get a really good 1080P TV any longer (I could be wrong). I initially bought a Samsung JS8500 that had really bad light bleeding on both sides (really bright bleeding!). Also was unimpressed with the black level and wanted a TV with a high native contrast ratio - didn't want to spring for OLED yet. I was leaning towards the X810C but when I saw them both in person the X850 looked better in every way.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
The picture quality is truly awesome if you are within about 5 degrees of the center of the set and more than 6 feet away. 4K sources look really amazing. I had no interest in a smart TV, but I am finding it interesting and somewhat useful.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
If you are not in the sweet spot, everything gets washed out.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
FALD would be nice. After owning it for a while, I guess a good IPS panel might be more useful despite the worse black levels.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
More consistent quality. Mine has no bright or dark spots, no defects of any sort that I can see, but it seems that a lot of people are not so lucky.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
How poor the picture quality is compared to my Plasma. There is nothing I can do to make the plasma look bad short of changing color settings drastically. This LCD, despite being calibrated, does not look as good with normal 1080i and 1080p sources. Skin tones especially are either too yellow or too red - or a combination of both. This TV looks great until you look at the plasma.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
None

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
I'm not sure. I paid twice as much for a 40" 1080P Sony in '06 which still works. In all but the darkest rooms the old Sony looks better. I think for the money you are getting a lot of real estate now as well as a lot of features. I expected the new set to blow away the old set in a dark room as well as a bright room, so I was disappointed, but the defective Samsung I tried first was more expensive and seemed to perform worse. I think being able to buy a reasonably good 55" 4K tv for less than $1,200 is probably a pretty good value.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
This TV looks great on the wall, until you look at the X900 series, but compared to my plasma which dimmed the lights in the house during bright scenes and would heat up the room, this TV is very slim and economical. If I didn't have the plasma to compare the picture quality to I am sure I would think this set is great.

1. The "Model" you have.
2015 Vizio M Series UHD - M50-C1

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Upgraded from a 42" 1080P TV I bought last June, the floor model was in perfect condition and I basically stole it for $440 with tax.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
The picture quality is ridiculous, everything looks so good, even SD television looks good. I also really enjoy the design, the thin bezels, the gunmetal on the outside. I also love the 5 HDMI ports

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
I don't like that it's not an LG OLED TV
Honestly, I'm not too sure what I don't like about it other than the fact that the native Youtube App doesn't support 4K (but I hook my Macbook Pro up to it so that doesn't bother me)

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
None really, it's perfect for me, I use Chromecast and can hook up my computer as stated so I don't necessarily NEED the Smart TV features.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Just keep improving picture quality. KEEP the 5 HDMI ports, slim the bezels even more, etc etc.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
How great the How To Train Your Dragon 2 Blu Ray looked, that's one of my favorite movies, and it looks astounding.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
None so far

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
It was an $800 TV I got for $440, I can't honestly say haha.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
I'm not quite sure I have any additional information to add, other than that if the legs are too wide, you can always buy a TV mount stand on Amazon which brings them closer to the center and allows you to raise and lower the height of the TV by remounting the stand to the VESA mounts.

Hisense 50H8C

1. The "Model" you have.
Hisense 50H8C

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Best warranty (4y), excellent set of features at price point (4k 60Hz 4:4:4, psuedo-HDR, $500 US)

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Good value. Good speakers.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Bad EDID tells my Nvidia graphics card that it can't do 4k, 60Hz at 4:4:4 chroma. I have to hack a fake EDID to make it display full color @ 60Hz. Figured it out in Windows, but still haven't in Linux. Bad colors out of the box, but fixable with settings. Reflection glare from room light is brighter than my previous TV.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Correct EDID. Anti-reflective coating. Smoother and/or more universal Smart OS (minor; it doesn't bother me much). DisplayPort input. VGA input. RCA audio out (only has 3.5mm for analog out). 3D.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Push a correct EDID to these TVs; they're otherwise quite good, but this hobbles them!

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
I couldn't get 4:4:4 chroma to work when others had confirmed that they made it work. I bought and tried several new cables as well as the Club3D active DP->HDMI adapter and nothing worked... finally figured out EDID tells wrong info and Nvidia (GTX 960) drivers respect that wrong info, refusing to go over 4:2:0 when I pick 4k @ 60Hz mode.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
See #7. Otherwise it is a decent display. I've had it for 3 weeks.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Yes, if you can get 4:4:4 to work. Otherwise, there is cheaper competition that does 4:2:0 4k 60Hz.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
This could be an amazing and popular display. If Hisense wants to make this unit a success, they need to do a few things: push an update with the correct EDID; add an information page to their website with the technical specs of the model; and try to get the rtings website to review it. They could dominate the low-price 4k 50" range if they did those things.
