I'd greatly appreciate any and all help in this!
1. Budget: $750
2. Seating distance: A chair about 8 feet away, I will be the only one using this TV, 99% of the time.
3. Size/placement limitations: It will be attached to the TV stand my current TV is on. It's called a Bell'O PTP9650.
4. Uses and sources: It will be primarily used for streaming services and gaming, about a 50/50 split of those. I have a 4K capable PC, a Switch, a Wii U, a PS4 Pro, PS3 and will likely be getting an XBOX One in the future (sometime later next year). I don't consider myself a competitive gamer or anything like that. I only play single player games (If that's a factor?).
5. Room lighting: My room barely has any lighting. I black out my windows and have only a single lamp which I turn off when I'm watching movies or playing games.
Some notes: I absolutely want "real" HDR. I have a 55" KU6290 (which doesn't have real HDR) from Samsung right now, which I'd be content with if not for the fact that it has these weird diagonal lines on it (It's not normal dirty screen effect, it's something wrong with the panel, I think! Dude from Rtings even said it's nothing he's ever seen before) and one of the video inputs doesn't work. Samsung won't fix it. Also, anything I get needs to be at least 55". I'm used to that size now and it'd be weird to go back down.
I have a 55P607 "ordered" from Amazon for $650, but it won't ship for a few weeks, estimated between December 14th and January 2nd(according to Amazon). Is it best to just wait for that, or is there another, better option that's available now? Or at least an option that's either as good or close to as good? P605 isn't an option either. Best Buy won't ship TV's larger than 50" (which, by the way, what the hell is up with that?! They'll "deliver" them, if you're in an "acceptable zone" or something, though) where I live, and no store within 250 miles has one in stock. Or is just toughing it out for the P607 the best option? I had considered the M55-E0 from Vizio, but I'd have to buy a 4K and HDR capable Roku for HDR youtube (Possibly also other things?) and 4K HDR capable splitter, as I think only one of it's HDMI ports can handle that, and with all that, it's gonna cost upwards of $200 (or more?) more and from what I gather, performs about the same? :/ I did see a P607 at a place called brandsmartusa.... which I have never heard of, (It'd have to be shipped) and it seems like if I had a problem, it'd be hell to deal with, but maybe someone has had experience with that? Pretty much, if it can't be shipped, I probably can't get it, for what it's worth (I live pretty far away from any actually useful stores that aren't walmart).
