There's nothing complex about this question. Forget about prices and features and display technologies like HDR and wide color gamut. All this poll is about is one simple question: What size will your next TV be?
Any idea when the Samsung 88"Q9 will be available?

Next TV will be at least an 8K. 90+ inches will probably not be that expensive by then.

The prices Per square hasn't dropped enough in the 70in size and up to make a diff at the distance I have to view at wouldn't notice the diff at 15 ft/.

I think I found your problem: you were watching World of Warcraft.

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

I was previously using a 2011 92" DLP Mits 1080P Rear Projector set. I replaced it with a 2015 78" 4K Samsung mid 2016. Each of these sets cost me ~$4500. I have to get 4 years out of a primary TV, so the next one won't happen for a good while.

I have a 15 foot viewing distance and a 78" inch is not ideal by any means. Next one will be 85" or better. I would really like something close to a 100".

Time for projector .

I have 14 feet from TV and 65" feels small already after year and half. Next time I will use go big or go home motto .

65" Sony A1E is what I'll hopefully be picking up soon. I much prefer OLEDs to LEDs and anything bigger than a 65" is simply too expensive to justify purchasing.

Nothing wrong with my 1080 55" TV I use now, its only a couple of years old. When I do uppgraade, It will be a 70" Its the biggest that would likely be practical in my room, and anything smaller will make me with I'd have gone bigger.

Sorry but there's no way on earth this will hold up. Comparing a $10K 85-100" screen to a 100, 125, 150" PJ set-up for ~ $2500 - $3,000 is not even in the ballpark.

$5K MIGHT start swaying some people, but $10k vs $3k won't ever fly. And yes, you can put a damn good image on the wall for $3k.

And this all assumes PJ tech will remain stagnant and not come down in price, itself. Neither will be the case, of course. More lumens every year, and I'd bet next year we'll finally see some REAL 4K options dropping below $5k.

Projectors will eventually go "DINO", but certainly not in the next 5 years. Large screen televisions will still be WAY too expensive for most of those who want a REAL big picture- and 85" is not a real big picture. Just imagine what a "lowly" $2000 PJ will do in two years, lol.

James
And let's not forget us renters. Moving a 60" TV is enough of a PITA- I can't imagine trying to move a 70" or 80". Hell, even if you could buy a 100" screen right now can you imagine how difficult it would be just to get it home and setup in the house? Meanwhile my projector disconnects from it's mount in about 30 seconds and figure another 45 min to take down my fixed screen. No fuss, no muss. And as a bonus I don't have to worry about it getting damaged in transit.

No. Truly large screen TVs are still going to be a niche until LG can figure out how to roll an OLED into a tube and transport it that way. Or maybe someone invents a tile system like what they are using in signage.

Nevermind that all of this ignores the fact that 100" is on the small side for projectors these days. Most of the people I talk to in the sub $3K forum are looking at 110, 120, even 140" plus!

I have a 75" now, and I'm loving the picture of the OLEDs at Best Buy, but I couldn't live with the downgrade to 65" and the 77" models are just too much right now. I'd ideally like to move to a 77"+ OLED once the prices come down (or another emissive display, perhaps micro-LED if it's viable in the market by then) or just go front-projection and get a huge 100"+ screen.

Going FP would also allow me to really open up my options when it comes to speakers, I could get an AT screen and get some real monsters like JBL or Klpisch pro cinema speakers or the DIYSG Titans and just toss them behind the screen.

I just finished building a media room off my kitchen. It measures 23x23.

I sit 12 feet from my new LG 86" and it's just about right as far as size.

Planet Earth II through my Oppo UHD is truly a sight to behold. The Stanley Cup playoffs look great too.

I paid about 7k for it. Considering I was looking at an Epson 6040 and a 120" screen, the pricing would have been close. Without having a completely dark room, I was afraid of lack of contrast, etc.

I already have a 75" Samsung in my LR and it just wasn't big enough from about 17' viewing distance. Couldn't get closer because of layout.

In the new room, my L and R floorstanders flank the screen and are almost too far apart for a seated distance of 12'. A 120" screen would have moved them even further, though I guess I could've moved my seating back another 3' or so.

People forge this isn't like dvd->bluray or sd->hd. The vast majority of enthusiasts on this forum couldn't tell 720p and 1080p apart in a blind test even on a large screen. How many people are going to repurchase everything in 4K? I won't.

I like my 1080p 3D (!!!) tv just fine for the next 3-4 years. I'd love to get a much larger OLED screen or ultra bright projector, but there's no point being an early adopter and this tech is moving too fast.

I got my 65" LG 2 weeks ago. Will take us a while to get another one in the future. This one is dolby vision cabable so we are pretty future proof for a while.

probably 55 because can't justify/afford the 6grand a 65" oled costs here

only other options i'd consider is a projector, and they are still fairly pricey too

i don't think i would personally ever buy a tv over 65", the last 65" i bought nearly didn't fit through the doors/hallways, etc. so anything bigger than that is going to have to be a projector for me

but i'm hoping none of this has to happen for many more years. totally happy with my current displays

The size of the next TV is depending on how long my current 60" 1080P display will last.


If I can delay the next display purchase until 2019-2020 then a 77" OLED or similar display might be within budget.

You really should post your review of this tv in the owner's forum. I'm debating this vs. projector setup for a 14 x 20 room (sitting about 18 feet) and have been scouring this forum and the web for user impressions. Not many people buy this large of a screen, reviews are slim to none, and can't see any in stores that I know of..

Hopefully one that lasts more then a year

1st 55js8002: Bad DSE - returned for replace
2nd 55js8002: Exactly the same thing - refund
55js9002: Panel R.I.P. (edge bleed after 1 year of use) - refund
55x900E: Great TV - hope it will last

2 REAL 4K. All this e-shift and wobulation is a boat load of garbage to deal with. Want true 4K, head north of $10K

3 Want HDR and Dolby Vision. Just weak HDR. Not happening yet.

4 I have a HT3050 with an AEON boarderless 100 inch screen calibrated and as far as immersion goes, it can't hold a candle to the little 65" E6 OLED in the other room. I watched Warcraft in Dolby Vision on the E6 and on the HT3050, and as far as immersion goes, I couldn't get over how much better the OLED's crisp, colorful picture was. Dolby Vision was beautiful.

And as soon as we starting getting OLED/Qled at 85-100 inches under or around $10K, that's a wrap on projectors. And by the looks of LG and Samsung expanding production in OLED, it will be here sooner than most think.

I understand tech development and projector companies need to quit doing minor updates every year. Look at a cell phone and all the tech in that little box. Yet new 4K Benq 8050 is a tank? With no HDR, 3d, or DV? Die development are in the 14nm, 12nm, and now 7nm finfet designs for processing chips from cpu to gpu. Time for Ti to outsource a real true 4K DLP chip and others to follow. Sorry laser projection isn't the answer either, made the projector box bigger, more power usage then LED and basically no resale value after original owner, since the laser will have to be replaced by new owner.($$$ thousands there?)

I have everything set for a 4K projector from 7.1 AVR to 4K Blu-ray. Will wait for DLP with Dolby Vision, but if not in the next year or two, will get an 85 inch or bigger OLED/Qled because it will have what I want on it and less on my power bill to boot!
Agree and is in line with my reference about no projector options in 4K (other than spending crazy amounts of money). Interesting point about them becoming obsolete if OLED gets the pricing down far enough. If the projector market does not get their tushes in gear and start rolling out affordable 4K options that really may be the case.

Current dual setup - 65" Samsung LCD/LED TV, 5 years old. 100" Motorized Projection Screen with BenQ W1080 ST, 1,100 hours on the lamp. Both with the Darbee Darblet. Looking to keep the projector for that movie experience with 1080P movies and occasional sports. Boxing on a big screen is like they are in your man cave. Hockey is much easier to follow on a big screen TV.

Next TV? 75" and most like a Sony 900E. I'm waiting for a significant drop in price - - in the $2K to $3K max price.

HDR wanted and Dolby Vision is not a priority as standards are evolving. What's most important to me is the upscaling ability and full array on a larger panel. Having the Sony XBR-49X-900E has opened my eyes to what processing can do for a 4K SDR picture as well as cable/satellite/OTA signals. Since I have a very fast Internet connection (300 mbps) - - streaming is a great alternative. To tell you how great the Sony X-1 Processor is (not even the top of the line Extreme Processor!) I thought that Manchester By The Sea was in HDR. The colors are that good on UHD streaming from Amazon Prime & Sony Google. In fact, better than my Samsung K8500 player or Amazon Prime HDR material. Very surprising.

75" is the max I can go in my man cave - - but it will be a nice step up from 65".

would love a decent quality 80+ that's relatively affordable 7k? The Sony 850E will not cut it.

I love my OLED but I'd sacrifice PQ for a larger screen. A larger decent quality screen for my case would be better than OLED. Hopefully real QLED or MicroLED makes larger screens at human prices possible.

Going have to be bigger than 75", which is what I have now. The way I see it, there are two options going forward, both of which have practical and financial challenges:

  • Large(90"-100"+) flat panel that is EASY to wall-mount + transport
  • Bright 4K/UHD Ultra Short-Throw PJ that can compete with flat panels in brightness/PQ and ease-of-setup

And the cost needs to be <$5k.

Either solution would require significant advances in display technology, and belief in the near-impossible

Current living room TV is a 60" Samsung LCD been serving us faithfully for 5 years, but we are moving into a new house next month so it's upgrade time!

I can't in good conscience go bigger that 75" that is what the wallet will allow. I'm excited!

Currently have a 80 2015 Vizio. So I want something bigger and with DV/HDR etc on it. Going to be a couple years I think as I don't really see anything bigger than 86 that I wouldn't need to sell your children to get....

Sony XBR-85X900F, Oppo 203 UHD, Denon X6300H, Emotiva UPA5 (triggered), Wharfedale Pacific Evo 40s, CS, 10s, PC DX12 sub, Def Tech A60 Atmos tops, the internet and a Nvidia Shield. There's also a Wii, but we don't talk about that...
