It would be nice to see the upconversion abilities of the set in Best Buy but they have it on a demo loop with no way to show it. However, the Samsung 65" 4K was showing Avatar and it didn't even...

How do you get the mover's coupon? Just go up to the post office and ask for it? There seems to be nothing about it on usps.com site.

I believe the 65" is the everyday price at BB. I asked if that was a Black Friday sale and he said they could get that price any day I wanted. They definitely could not raise it much higher than...

The 70" P series is now listed at $1498 at Sam's Club for Black Friday. Geez, they are practically giving this set away.

Well, two years ago I paid almost $7000 for a 70" Sharp Elite. It was the last of it's kind and all indications I had read was that full array local dimming sets were going to be a thing of the past...

They have the P series 55" inch set up on a demo at Best Buy. I know it's not showing it's upscaling abilities, but just from the 4K source, the picture looks far better than the Samsung curved and...

What's hard to swallow is seeing a 70" full array back lit with local dimming 4K set for $2500 2 years after I pay $7000 for a Sharp Elite 70" lol.

Last I read, Vizio was still trying to figure out the logistics of delivering a 120" screen. I could be wrong, but the 120" seemed to be more of a proof of concept set. Vizio has been widely...

That being said, I would be surprised if there were...

Well, the ad does say only 5-11 available per store so they are probably going fast. But then again, not many people are really looking for Black Friday deals this early. I'm not so sure people are...

I would be careful about depending on resale value. The TV tech world moves fast and in a couple of years there will be a minimal market for a 2 year old set. Two years ago I paid $6700 for a 70"...

Here's an option.

I would get something like a 60" Vizio M series 1080P TV for now. It has great reviews and is very inexpensive. Let that hold you over for a year or two while the dust...

I don't think the cable companies really care now that they all have data caps. If you reach your cap from streaming 4K you will just have to pay for more data or start watch in 1080i instead.

I can certainly see the difference between 720 and 1080. I find the jump from HD to UHD though to be much smaller when observed from normal viewing distances. I have read the House of Cards 4K...
