Serious Display Quandry

I currently have a 65 inch vizio p series 2016 and a 2018 lg oled c8 65 inch. I love both TVs, though in a direct comparison, the oled is better. However, I feel the p series is pretty close. The problem is that I have been getting a crave for a huge display. My 65 seems insufficient. I want a 75 inch for my home theater. I have kef q series and a pb 3000, and I want a screen to match the sound. Anyway, my brother is offering me 1500 for the oled. I was thinking I would sell it and get a vizio 75 p series 2019 for 2300. 240 dimming zones, 1200 nit brightness, and quantum color. I would only have to pay a couple 100 dollars to get a 75 inch with great specs, but I know oled will ultimately look better. Is this a good idea? Would I be downgrading a lot. I feel my 2016 p series already looks pretty close to the oled. Wouldn't a 2019 version be even closer? Advice?

^man that is a clean setup! As far as going larger, it's a no brainer. I too had a 2016 Vizio p series which now belongs to my sister and still runs well but it was no oled for sure. I don't know much about the newer P series...but the 77inch OLED are at the cheapest they have been especially if you look in the right place.

This is the only TV I’ve ever seen that comes close to OLED.

https://www.vizio.com/tvs/pseriesquantumx/px75g1.html It has 480 Zones which will be laughable since most TV in a year or 2 will have 1,000 Zones like the TCL X10 with 768 Zones and 15,000+ individual LEDs.

I’d get a OLED next year since it will be a new brighter generation, since the next 5+ years will be a pissing match of Zone Counts.

Also wait for Amazon Prime Day in a few weeks or the July 4th Mega TV sales.

Thanks for the heads up about prime day, I’ll definitely wait to see what deals pop up. I was looking closely at material on Netflix yesterday on my vizio p, and the black levels are done quite well on it. I agree more zones would be better. Maybe I should wait for the 75 quantum x to go on a big sale. Either way, I can’t afford a 77 inch oled. They are at the cheapest $4,000 on eBay, and I rather not take a risk on a no name dealer. Also, I’m going to need to finance anything above $2,000, so a place like Best Buy is a must.

Thanks for the compliment, my wife picked out all the furniture. She did a good job of keeping the farmhouse look of the rest of our house while still having all the cool tech in our basement, a good compromise in my opinion.

Personally, for home theater use, I would buy a Sony 940e for $1998 on Amazon.

The only reason that I haven’t jumped on this myself is that my wife would kill me, lol!

That honestly looks like a fantastic deal, but I’m a little hesitant to get a set that is already two years old. I’m leaning toward a quantum x or somehow finding a way to grab an oled 77 inch.

I went with a 75" Q90R through Samsung financing. No interest for 36 months, upgrade in 2 years and and they pay off the remainder of the TV and you get to keep it.

Nice set up. I'm a go big or go home guy, my next set...no smaller than 85.

You won't regret it until you get your visa statement.

Cheers

Even though it’s 2 years old, the 940e still checks all the boxes and more than holds its own in terms of performance and PQ.

250+ zones, Dolby Vision, and renowned Sony processing. It’s as bright as any 2019 model, and its dark room performance is among the best of any LCD set.

You won’t find a better 75” set for $2,000, not even close. Even if your budget were $4,000, you wouldn’t do much better.
