So OLED, 4K (SUHD and HDR) and Smart TV are important. HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2 and AC wireless are important. USB 3 a bonus. Minimum 3 HDMI. A little concerned about the future of WebOS 3, since that staff has been let go. Realize the LG 55EG9100 is missing some of these but it's an amazing picture at the price. (Wife hasn't decided if 65 is to big for the room yet, so replacement is 55 - 65)
1. LG 55EF9500 – 2,999.00
2. Sony XBR65X900C – 2,298.00
3. Samsung UN55JS9000 – 2,197.00
4. Samsung UN65JU7500 – 2,197.00
5. LG 55EG9100 – 1,999.00
that's fantastic...i'm glad it hasn't just been me with all of these thoughts swirling about my head.
i'm with jmcging on this one.
i'd like a little future proofing myself.
in fact, your requirements fall in line with mine.
the 42/60u i have has been pretty great. wonderful, even.
i'd like the next set to live to the same standard.
my current pq is really, really great. to the point that others with the latest and greatest comment about how my old clunker can muster keeping up.
atticusf...agreed! my set was $2500 at the time. how funny is that? yeah...it is thick as all get out, too. you're also right about the heat. i'm not just talking about the rear...the panel itself...at least mine...you walk in front of the tv and it just expels heat. sometimes i swear you can see it...
i should probably also go out of my way to thank everyone who helped steer me to this purchase all years ago. of all the forums i've been a part of online...ever...i have to admit avs has been the best. the response time, the expertise, the community...blows just about everything else away.
jmcging...i'm actually going to follow your lead and look into those models you posted.
thanks! probably worth my while...
