The struggle is real my friend. Lol!
I totally understand where you're coming from. You know, av enthusiasts (aka tv snobs) such as ourselves, we end up having certain factors that have more importance than others. Sometimes we know what those are without any questioning, and sometimes we have some testing and returning to do before we can get there. I tend to be on the testing and returning most of the time. It comes down to some specific bullet points that most of us struggle with. In no particular order.....
Price - Best possible deal you can find
Size - Biggest screen for immersive experience
PQ - Best possible picture quality
Features - Streaming apps, TV processor, etc..
Future Proof - How long will this TV hold up with new and upcoming technology
All of these are important and some of them are more important than others depending on the person. Through many years and many many many TV's, I've come to realize within the last 4-5 years which is most important to me. That would 100% be Picture Quality. At the end of the day, I want the best or damn near close to the best picture I can get. Now, here's the problem with that. There are soooooo many subcategories within PQ that you can drive yourself crazy. Do I want the brightest picture, do I want the most accurate colors, do I want the deepest blacks and so on and so forth. I wish I fell more into the other categories because then my tv journey would be much simpler. But, I am who I am and I just have to accept that for what I look for in overall picture quality, nothing beats an OLED.
At the end of the day, we all check our boxes and whatever tv we ultimately end up with, we figure out a way to justify why that was the right choice. So, in saying all of that, figure out what is most important for what you look for in a tv and freaking go for it! With a little searching and research, you can always find a pretty good deal for whatever tv you want. May not be as cheap as some other options but at least you know you'll be happy in the long run and there will be less buyers remorse and justifying as you watch your tv years down the road. Good luck!
