Hey guys, some of you helped me buy my Samsung LN52A550 back in 2008, which has worked great all this time but has now sadly died.
The good news is that now I get to buy a new TV! I've been researching TVs this week but have not followed the tech in 11 years so it's a lot to take in.
I was hoping for some advice on which TV to get. Budget isn't super fixed but was hoping for around $1,000 or less, but could go higher. We mainly watch TV shows and movies served from a Plex server and Netflix, with an Apple TV as the source. No sports and no broadcast TV. Very occasional DVD or Blu-Ray. The room is usually medium to low lighting.
I first hit up The Wirecutter review site, and they recommended the Vizio P-Series F1 followed by the TCL 6-Series. In reading the owner threads here, it seems that the Vizio has screen issues, and the TCL has quality issues, but maybe those are normal risks when buying a large LCD panel?
Anyway, what do you think, the Vizio P65-F1 or the TCL 65R617? (Or something else?) The Vizio's 120 Hz screen sounds appealing, but the TCL costs less. I don't think I'm as discerning a viewer as some of you experts, but I'd like a nice picture because sometimes my eyes tend to pick out flaws and then obsess over them.
Update: I just read the comments on that Wirecutter review, and there are an awful lot of complaints about the Vizio's picture quality. And several suggestions to spend a few hundred more and get a "better quality brand" like Samsung. What do you guys think?
