Who is happy with their TV?

I know this is an enthusiast's forum and as such, we are critical of our displays. We can endlessly debate the shortcomings of various products. But, most of the time, we are watching non-critical programming. For all of those instances, who is satisfied with their TV under standard viewing conditions where we just enjoy the experience not not look for fault.

I'm still satisfied with my 2011, floor demo, 70" Sharp. Still looks good especially with Blu-Ray. I want a new, larger set but I'm having a hard time justifying it since this set is still working perfectly. If the LG 77 OLED were to get down to $3000 I would really be tempted.

Maybe the TCL 8 series if it's as good as expected at $2000.

FYI - The 75" 8 Series has a $3K MSRP but it will probably dip a decent amount lower than that eventually

Maybe you're referring to the 65" size which is $2K? But I would not recommend downsizing from your 70" Sharp

If you're feeling you need a larger set and already have a 70" set, I think the only true upgrade from there would be to the 85" size

Supposedly TCL has plans for an 85" in 2020 so I would hold out especially since you're currently happy with your set. (Of course there's other 85" models already on the market too.)

Been looking some for the past few months. Was thinking Sony OLED but cost prohibitive in 77". Samsung 75 Q90R is of interest if it wasn't for Samsungs well know poor support. Also looking to see how the TCL 75" 8 series fairs in reviews, etc..
But then again I look at the beautiful picture on my Sony 75X940E and say what's the point .

55” Sony X930D and LG OLED65C9. Very happy with both my sets. Will get a new TV only when one dies or 6 years, whichever comes first.

Panasonic TH-42PX80U in the family room for (10+ ?) years. Still a great picture.

Purchased a XBR-65X900F a few months ago that has a decent picture with few tweaks. With some more work should be solid.

Yeah no reason to upgrade as the 940E was/is a fantastic set. Unless you want an additional TV for a HT setup in a dark environment.. then yeah, go OLED for sure.

Since you're already at the 75" size, I'd wait for a future 85" mini-LED (or dual cell LED), or when 85"/88" OLED becomes more affordable.

Got a Samsung QN82Q80 last month to replace a HLA67A750A1FXZA from 2008. Very pleased with it. My son got the old TV in his apartment so he's happy too. It still looks great, even after 11 years.

TV, yeah, no problem, but maybe upgrade your football team! SkinsDC, so Washington Redskins, really? How much more can you take? Bad owner, bad president/GM, bad coaches, bad players, etc.

On the bright side they do play Miami this Sunday so a good chance for their first win.

Still astounded by my 65” Sony 930e (light canon)!! Have last years 55” tcl 6 series that my wife watches, and for the price it’s an unreal picture imo....looking forward to reviews on the tcl 8 series, because I am itching for a 75 incher.

I was a lucky one and won the panel lottery with TCL 6 series from 2018.
I am still blown away by the price to performance on this display.
Doesn’t quite match the motion performance of my X900E or former KS8500, but for less than 5 bills it is quite good.

I've got a month old Sony X950G and loving it. I was a Panny plasma snob and didn't think LCD could match, but this TV beats it with brighter whites and blacker blacks than the plasma, and of course 4K. I'm typically watching sports in a bright room with lots of windows. I wanted an OLED but the sets I saw at BB were just too dim for my taste.

I'll get flamed for this, but tough: I have an oldie but goodie Samsung F8000 that I'm still happy with. Do the new 8,000,0000,000K Tvs 'pop', have inky blacks, and enhanced edge detail? Yes, but, but...............there's an air of unreality about them when I see them in stores. Because after I look at them and then glance at reality, reality does NOT have the same poppy, 'enhanced' feel to it.

Even black stuff in reality doesn't look as black as those sets.

This is hard to describe, but there is a cartoonish emphasis in these sets that I don't see in real life.

I know, I know, I need to go to an eye doctor. So, I still enjoy my washed out F8000 that looks just my living room when I switch from it to reality.

edit-I realize I'm looking at torch mode in the stores. Maybe if these were calibrated, they'd look more real to me,

You could just say you like your set and leave it at that instead of attacking everyone else just a thought ?

Just bought a 43" TCL 4 series for the bedroom. I pay no mind there and the wife isn't a vidiot. For $220, I'm really happy because TCL is made pretty well (prefer it over a cheap vizio and the hisense that was there failed in just a few years) she's cool with Roku that's working better than expected and it's fine for cable.

I would not be satisfied with it for my main set which is currently a Kuro that I will look to replace at some point with a 75" LCD. Maybe when the new 8 series TCL drops enough.

Have you considered that maybe it's the display setting.
