Hey guys, first post here, ive been looking at a lot of threads in the audio section for some time though.
I'm looking to buy a 4k TV this black friday for my bedroom, and conflicted on what to go for. I'm going to be upgrading from a 32" Sony 1080p TV from 2009. That TV has been great to me and I love Sony products(still keeping my soundbar+sub from the same purchase in 2009), however i know that sony is now definitely out of the budget lol. In terms of value im just not too aware on if no matter the TV i end up getting is going to be a significant upgrade to my current Sony or not SO much. pretty sure i got my 32" w/ a soundbar + subwoofer in 09 for $600 from a Sony black friday deal.
1. Budget: $200-300
2. Seating Distance: 6-7 feet.
3. Size: 43"
watching tv shows, movies(via streaming services ie netflix, youtube, amazon prime), sports via chromecast, AND im buying a PS4 slim to get back into gaming. I LOVE my chromecast lol, i think im prob gonna end up using that to stream apps rather than the 'smartTV' interfaces on any of the TV options, unless they absolutely blow me away.
5. Room Lighting
The lighting in my room is idk average? lol. during the day with the blinds open it can be bright but in the evenings my lamp isn't that bright, and i only watch movies with the lights off if its horror so not that often. This wasn't really a consideration when it came to buying my current TV so if the differences would be just marginal between my TV options, i don't really mind.
the TV deals ive seen so far that im interested are the:
-Toshiba 43" 4k Fire TV Edition(mayyy be able to get for $130 but thats if im like all the way in the front of the line at Best Buy which is realistically unlikely but im being optimistic lol.) The rest of the TVs are around $300
- Samsung 43" 6900 series(one downside of this is that i know it only has 2 hdmi inputs but if you guys think this is a good one then i could manage tbh)
-TCL 43" 5 series(this one im honestly just unsure of because of the brand especially since ive always rolled with Sony BUT from a technical standpoint ive heard these are great value.)
I would appreciate it if you guys could provide your opinions on the TVs listed here or even suggest other ones in the budget, thank you!
