Thumbs up How many people here have no regrets about their TV purchase?

How many people here have no regrets about their TV purchase? I want to hear all of the things that make you feel great about your specific TV. Don’t bash other TVs or compare your TV to something else. There are plenty of other threads for that. Just list what you like about your own TV. I will start with mine.

2015 80 inch 4K Vizio M80-C3

1. I never realized how big a difference watching an 80 inch TV would be. The screen is so big it just sucks you into movies.

2. I love deep black levels and the local dimming gives me the black levels I desired.

3. I love being able to “Cast” a show from Netflix or Youtube to the TV from an iPad. That is a very handy feature especially with kids.

4. Games like Call of Duty Black Ops III with 1080p @ 120 FPS are outstanding. The input lag is exceptional on HDMI input 5 with Game Low Latency turned on and actually acceptable even with it turned off on that same input.

5. I have no issues at all when playing 4K videos from youtube on my computer while hooked up to the TV. The quality these videos have absolutely shocks everyone who sees them on the big 80 inch screen.

6. Watching football on an 80 inch screen was something that I hadn’t done before I got this TV. I have watched way more football in the past few months than I have ever before. I just love seeing the players in near lifelike scale.

Purchased 75 inch 1080P Sammie 6350 via Costco 2014. Truly love the tv and had made the no 4K yet decision prior to the purchase. Love it, really do. I agree with many of your comments, the bigger screen really does pull you in to the movie. I do not game at all so no comment there. Sports are awesome as well. Not much to complain about at all, truly do love it.

I also purchased a 2015 75" Samsung 1080P set, model J6300. I moved up from an 8 year old 61" Samsung LED DLP 1080P set. While I liked the picture it provided, advancements have clearly passed it by. I didn't realize black could be so black and still have detail. The extra picture real estate is also a huge plus, the main reason I got it other than the fact the DLP was on it's way out again. A 75" for under $2k was also a big selling point, 4K wouldn't provide any added benefit to me.

Samsung UN65JS850DFXZA from Costco.

Upgrading from a 50" Samsung 720p DLP that I bought in 2003.
  1. Huge step up in screen size, plus the ability to sit very close with 4k (about 5ft)
  2. Very very bright (especially compared to the DLP)
  3. 4k content is amazing, especially the HDR stuff from Amazon
  4. 4k gaming. I bought a GTX 970 to go along with this and have been able to game in 4k with no issues
  5. Contrast levels and scaling engine. I can see so much more detail in dark scenes now. 1080p scales nicely as well.

That's off the top of my head, but man I've been loving this thing so far. I agonized for months over which model to buy, but felt I made the perfect choice in the end based on my budget and needs :P

I don't regret buying my Panasonic 65CX850 as it is a fantastic set with great colour and image richness.

I do wish it had a more uniform screen though since the DSE can be a bit annoying at times while gaming with panning over things like light skies like in GTA Online. It's not an issue to me with anything else though.

No regrets on my Samsung JS9000. Beautiful build quality, great picture, very versatile. Looking forwards towards the one connect upgrades in the future Wouldn't mind one 80" or larger in the future to replace my projector!

Sony x930c

No second thoughts about replacing 70 inch 2014 p-series with
2015 Sony x930c. It's a whole 'nother universe.

What size is the X930c? Can you describe what things you like about the X930c in a little more detail? We hear so much of what is wrong with each TV. This thread is about telling us what is right about the TV you have.

The x930c is the 65 inch version. I had the Vizio 70 inch p-series ISF'd by Gregg of
Lion a/v. We both agreed it was the best of the second tier televisions. The Sony out of
the box was better on every count. Color,black levels and a sense that the picture was
more accurate. I paid $1000. more for the Sony and felt it was worth every penny.
