Question to ALL TV owners

So this is fairly simple and straight forward.

1. What current TV (brand & model) do you have now at the moment and how long have you had it for?

2. How long do you plan on keeping it and do you wish you should've waited for something currently out now or coming out soon rather than buying the TV you currently have now? why/ why not?

3. Would it make sense for you to upgrade soonish are you just going to ride with what you got for a while longer (like 2-5 years from now).

I have the 65 inch KS8000 which at the time back in 2016 was hyped up to hell and back and I fell hook line and sinker for it..... Some times the longer you stay with someone you kinda fall in love with it over time, but nope not me and this TV. It's not a bad set per say but I just never grew attached to it from day 1 and looking back now I probably shouldn't have kept it but like a bad relationship you tend to stay in it even when deep down you know things ain't right.

If I hadn't had gotten that TV I probably would be getting one of the new vizios coming out this year but as it is right now it just wouldn't make sense to upgrade so I'm kinda stuck with it. I'm trying to stay on a 5-7 year upgrade cycle give or take when new worthwhile technologies come out.

Question to ALL TV owners

65” Sony 900e

I will wait to get a new set that fully supports 2.1 hdmi with eARC in particular and either OLED or FALD. I think OLED is going to suffer in the future with LEDs fixing the off axis issue and having much better brightness for HDR. Guess we’ll see.

I'm a happy Panasonic 65" owner of 3 years. My next big screen purchase may be 8K several or more years from now. I'm satisfied with 4K HDR10 until then.

Sooner purchases will be 4Ks for bedrooms, replacing 1080p. There'll be no panic to make deals.

A 2011 Panasonic IPS 1080p 32” LCD model number tcl32s1 its a highly sought after model for gaming since for 2011 it only has 16ms input lag.
And no regrets plan on keeping it 1 more year.
And have 2 2013 46” Samsung UN46F6300, bought one and Amazon delivered 2 for the same price. Just one of those things. Been super happy. Colorful and work great. No regrets.
And $1500 Best Buy credit since my 2014 Panasonic Plasma died within the 5 Year GeeK Squad Warranty so they just gave me the purchase price back.

My primary TV is currently the Q9FN. I've had it about a year.
It's going to either go away shortly or get moved to another location in the house. I don't wish I had purchased anything else and have zero regrets. It's been superb in almost every regard.
I'll be swapping for a new display in the next few weeks. I purchase at least one TV every year, sometimes more.

Also have an F8500 60". It's my Directv/Blu ray TV. Also have an LG C7 and B8 in 55". B8s my gamer and C7 for the bedroom. For what I watch most of I still prefer the F8500. 6 years old, close to 18,000 hours and still kicking!

Sharp Aquos LC-60LE632; about 7 years

Will keep for another 1-3 years; It was the previous years model when I bought it and got an excellent deal. I haven't felt the need to look elsewhere until now. The developments that have me looking now are HDR, eARC (if it works, but I have had good luck with ARC), and possibilities of HomeKit integration. I may wait to see how ATSC 3.0 shoes out as well.

I would hold on to your current TV until you see something that really get you excited. You would probably have to wait at least 3 years to get a significant improvement on what you have now. Not being an early adopter has saved me a lot of money over the years. In the meantime you might try improving the overall experience by updating the components around your TV like your sound system if that is a little older but the same guidelines still apply.

1. Samsung 82" Q90R, I have had it for two weeks.

2. Probably a very long time. Usually size is the thing that makes me want to get a new TV, but I literally have no more room. No regrets on the Q90R given the deal I received.

3. I could possibly see myself upgrading in 5 years, but doubtful.

1. Sony 65Z9D since April 2017 and a Sony 75Z9D since Febuary 2018.

2. I'm planning on keeping these until a new Sony LCD model comes out that will outperform the 75Z9D. Since that is not likely to happen anytime soon, it will probably not be until Sony releases either a Mini or MicroLED before I upgrade. I don't regret buying the Z9Ds because I think there is nothing else available which could top them. The only thing I regret is not having bought them at launch.

I would have liked to add the upcoming Sony 65A9G to my household though, but unfortunately I do not have the space for a third TV.

3. See above, no sense in upgrading for me now until Sony get their act together and release a "real" Z9D successor.

Had 1 65 Samsung lcd and 1 60 inch Panasonic plasma for 6 years.
Just upgraded to a 75 nu8000

The jump from 1080p to 4K and the size bump has made me very happy even though it’s not oled.

No regrets..... But I get upgraditus every time I come here 😀 But simultaneously can’t pull the trigger on anything bc something better is always around the corner on this site. So I guess it balances out.

Will probably upgrade more often once I become an empty nester.

I have a Samsung HLA67A750A1FXZA from 2008. I've always been happy with the PQ and motion handling(big for me).
It's not as bright as it used to be but still looks good. I had a chip failure last year (black and white dots all over the screen) but a new chip was less than $200 and I was able to replace it myself so I did it. Had I been thinking clearly I would have told my wife it wasn't fixable and we needed a new TV. Oh well.


I'm looking into a replacement > 80 in, as I sit 16-17 ft away most of the time. I have not yet figured out how high up the quality ladder I want to go.

TCL 75" 6 Series. I've had it since it was released, which I believe was around three months ago.

I'll keep it until it stops working or something significantly better come along; something like a 85" 6 Series or when 8K becomes as prevalent as 4K is now.

In 2017, I waited for TCL to release a 65" version of their P Series (Now called the 6 series) but they never did. Last year, when the 65" version came out, I pre-ordered it a bit after it was announced. This year, when the 75" was announced, I did the same thing.

No because it's a great TV and shines at what I use it for; Video games and 4K Movies. Since 8K isn't becoming common anytime soon and it's doubtful the PS5 will do better than 4K/60FPS, I don't foresee "needing" a new TV any time soon.

TV: TCL 75R615
Reciever: Onkyo TX-NR787 running in a 5.4.4 configuration
Speakers: Polk T Series
Subwoofers: Dual SVS PB12-NSD and dual SVS PB-1000.
Gaming Systems: PlayStation 4 Pro and Nintendo Switch.

1- 55' Samsung Q7FN, i literally just got it today.

2- As long as it satisfies my needs or just until i get an "itch" to upgrade, which generally comes around 3 or 4 years of usage

3- Not currently because this was the best i could afford without going bankrupt, and it has everything i need as well, its great.
