1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung UN55KU6500.

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

4K/HDR.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Picture Quality.

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

The Remote.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

It has all the features I need.

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

None. The tv is great as it is.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How excellent the PQ was.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

None.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

On the high end tv's no because of the lack of 4K Material out there. There's some but not alot and hopefully that changes soon.

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

It's great to be finally on the 4K bandwagon but the lack of 4K material to show off my new tv is really frusterating but I knew that before I even bought my tv that 4K has yet to hit it's stride and get more mainstream. Hopefully that all changes in the coming years.

1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung 78KS9500

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Size, & got a good deal on it.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Picture quality with 4K sources. Wow! Also, surprisingly deep blacks. Pretty cool remote too.

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

Flashlighting/clouding. With a lower backlight like I use, it's not too bad. But when watching HDR content, the backlight automatically jumps to max and there is significant flashlighting on dark screens.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

It has all the features I need.

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

Id rather hook my receiver direct to the TV - the OneConnect box just seems like an extra hop.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How big the box is!

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Had a strange issue the first day not being able to access some picture modes/settings.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

Up to 65" i think are at reasonable prices. When you want something larger like i did, prices skyrocket (excessively IMO).

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

Like other posters, I'm hoping for more 4K content sooner rather than later. I also wish manufacturers would give the option of a "non-smart" TV for a reduced cost, for those of us with HTPCs and the like. I don't need any built in apps, cameras, streaming services etc. but I'm paying for them regardless.

Samsung 78KS9500
Axiom M60 (x2) , Axiom VP150 , Axiom QS8 (x2) , SVS PB1000 (x2)
Yamaha RX-V581
PS4
HTPC (i3-2105 , GTX 1050)

1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung 65KS8000

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Reviewed as the best tv for a bright living room and then size and price point.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Looks real good

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

Trying to figure out HDR and Netflix on it.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Easier setup for HDR for sources.

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

Make HDR more of an automatic change.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How damn good regular cable tv from directv looks. We had a 5+ year old 60" led sharp.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Figuring out why netflix looks so dark on titles.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

Yes, if you wait and pickup a closeout 2016 model. At full MSRP then no.

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

The tv looks brilliant with the proper source material. If only I could get netflix to look like the demo videos from the HDR channel on youtube.

1. The "Model" you have.

Vizio P65

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

After extensive research and the good experiences I've somewhat had before with other vizio models. This tv gets high from a lot of people and I just dug the way the bezel looked compared to other sets.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

The set physically looks great in its "earth toned" settings. The metal bezel gives it a beefy look. The picture is of coarse great and its one of those sets you keep "playing" with and figuring out new ways to show off things


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

Its probably my first "big" set and it was a beast to transport.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Although completely being phased out, we are still somewhat of a cord cutter family and still have over the air antennas. This set of coarse has no tuner. Which I don't mind but it really challenges you to find a way via either roku or "chrome casting" to watch good television.

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

I would suggest for them to cut back on the different variant/models (D, E, M, P series) to be cut. Its ridiculous just because one has one little thing different that it now has its own designation and the differences in price or leading to a lot of consumer confusion, which I'm guessing is to Vizio's benefit.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

Just how easy the setup was. I hit a few buttons on the tablet remote and everything was happening on the screen.
Felt like I was really entering in the future.


8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Just trying to figure out or toggle around the tablet remote. I'm still trying to get used to making settings changes to a specific port and wondering if this is changing something else somewhere else. It's not very clear on what is happening sometimes when you make these changes

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

They can be if you are diligent and don't just jump on the latest greatest. It's pretty amazing when I think back to the first flat panel that I bought a few years ago and to the amount I have had to learn now to get to know what I'm actually buying.

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

Be patient. Do your homework.

1. The "Model" you have.
Sharp LC-60N6200U

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Price. 60" 4K for $199.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Great picture quality and good viewing angles (IPS screen). HDR-compatible (not true HDR, not bright enough, probably not WCG).

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Lack of Plex app. Poor black levels due to IPS screen.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
FALD to improve the black levels.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Improve cleanliness of the factory (see #8).

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
How thin the top 2/3rds of it are (1.75"). All my other budget TVs are a good 1/2" or more thicker.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
There is a ton of dust inside the screen that is visible from 10" away on an all-white screen. Not a deal-killer since not visible from 4+ ft away. Obviously not assembled in a very clean factory.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
At the $199 price I paid, I think this TV was more than worth it.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Really dislike that there is not a Plex app.

Picture quality with 4K HDR material

Like many said before, the edgelighting kinda sucks.

Capability to browse the internet with my browser of choice.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

That it was in one piece - Such huge TV's tend to get damaged on the way.

The lower 2/3 of the screen show a perfect 3D picture, ther upper 1/3 shows doubles, not sharp 3D.

Absolutely. I paid Euro 3,000 for a Sony rear projector in 2006 and the picture was nothing compared to todays picture quality.

Will add more later when I know a little more.

By definition, everybody here has bought a set and is commenting on it. Economics 101 says that means they thought the price was "worth it". Otherwise the money would have stayed in their wallet. That's pretty much the definition of a free market transaction, you value "thing" more than the "money" you spent for it.

New Arrival Sony XBR55X900E

. The "Model" you have.

Sony XBR55X900E

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Reviews

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

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
A. The Remote
B. Dolby Digital Cuts out from Optical Out to Pre-Amp when changing channels or using 3 Second skip on Direct TV HR44-500

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
"S" Video Input
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Improve Menus and Remote and for this price include the owners manual that's only available online.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
None yet

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Sound Issues with my older pre HDMI Preamp Processor. Dolby Digital 5.1 is sometimes absent and you have to switch Audio mode or change channel on Direct TV to shock it back. Have had issues with Blu Ray audio as well.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Yes, it's all relative. TV I replaced was first generation 55" Mitsubishi 1080i Rear Projection I paid $3000 for in 2001. However, there's no way this will last even half that time.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Just had it delivered yesterday and still trying to figure out how to set to my liking.

Awesome $1000, 70"LCD,4k,HDR!!!

1. I recently purchased a Vizeo 70" 4k, HDR, multizone smart TV that is great even if it was 3 times the price!
2. It replaced a 65" 1080p Mitsubishi DLP series 3 chip tv. Anyone here in md you can have it for 30 bucks! It works perfectly, 2 years old. I just don't have the room.
3. It has all the bells and whisles you could ask for and CHEAP!
4. The ONLY con I've found in two months is the "Basic Remote" which doesn't do much at all! You have to have either a android phone or android tablet to use the "Vizeo Smartcast" app which is free.
My phone was too old so I opted for an 8" Asus Zen tablet which I love! The app also will not let you cast just any app. I wanted to use a Freq. analyzer on the tv as I tweaked my speaker location after running MultiEQ on my Marantz avr. Also I've seen some pretty good "YouTube" videos utilizing a frequency analyzer or Decibel meter on the tv as you listen to someones set up! I'd like to see more of that!
5. I like just about everything about this tv. It"s only 4 inches thick and 90 Lb's
Plenty of inputs/outputs-"ARC", Very nice picture with 4K upscaling. Tone of control like I've NEVER seen on a tv with the "smartcast" app.
If your a control freak this is the tv for you!
6. It's was available at Sam's club and Walmart.
7. After seeing mine two of five neighbors also bought the same Tv that week. And they Love it as well. Customer service was also surprisingly good. And the call center is in Texas.
8. If you buy one and a decent tablet or have a compatible phone already I do not believe you will regret it!

1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung "The Frame" 55" UN55LS003AF

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Loved that it mounted absolutely flush to the wall, has no visible logo from the front and is art when the TV is off.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Love the physical appearance of the set and the picture quality is pretty good.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
I don't like the edge-lit LCD, you can tell the edges are brighter than the middle. I also don't like the OneConnect fiber cable - makes me nervous.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Not sure that it is lacking any features that I need.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Get rid of the OneConnect box and Fiber cable (or offer a non-fiber cable) for those that have a way to run the cable through the wall that is less fragile!

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Its HEAVY for a 55" TV.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
Smart TV performance is slower than I thought it would be for a 2017 model. It should be as responsive as an AppleTV for being $2000.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Probably not, but the cool factor was worth a bit.
