Help picking 80"+ TV

Hey guys,

We are looking for a large tv for the family room. Looking at 80"+ but haven't totally ruled out a 75" unit if the 80"+ are not good in our price range ($3500 max)

So far best deal we found is 82" Samsung UN82MU8000 - $3300 on Amazon

Anything else out there equal or better to consider for the price?

We looked at the LeEco 85" unit. $3000 seems like a great deal but worried about spending so much and having issues. Tempting though! Any thoughts on that one? I've read as much as I can find about it- people that have it seem to really like it minus pending no support/firmware- yikes?

For those with tv 80" plus - any regrets getting the large tv?

Watching mostly sports and movies, but also regular shows. No gaming

Thanks for any tips!

I just bought the un82mu8000 and love it. Mine is mounted on the wall in my 16'x20' bonus room. I picked mine up at Best Buy for $3299 and feel like it's a great value.

Hi,
We have two of these mounted on Chief mobile stands for a large conference room. Needed a couple of large displays with future 4K HDR capability. Have had them for about four months. No issues. Bright very sharp picture, fair sound.

Do you mean the LeEco? Or the Samsung?

Costco just leaked their Black Friday Ad.

They have a Vizio 80" for $2500. I think it's the M80.

I think the BF deal at costco is for the E80 which is normally around 3K. The M series tops out at 75" and the legs are different. If it is for a M80 that would be a steal
