Old tv died looking for help picking a new one.

So as mentioned I am in the market for a new tv. I’m looking to spend ~$1000 but wouldn’t mind spending a little more for better quality. This tv will be used for cable television, movies and my Xbox one. So far I have looked at Samsung’s q90R (out of my price range) q80r (possibly more than I want to spend) the q70 vizios p series quantum x and Sonys X950G. Any help with the models or others I may have missed will be greatly appreciated. Also sound quality is of zero concern, have a sound system set up. Thanks!

It may also be worth mentioning I have a very large window in the room where this tv will be used and I was told an LED would be a better option than an OLED because of this not to mention the price difference.

Cable TV is all about upscaling as quite a few channels are still at 720p. While most TVs have fast response times and low input lag for gaming, Samsung Q70R/Q80R/Q90R all support VRR as does Xbox One. So Samsung "QLED" might be your best fit with good 720p upscaling and VRR. The Q80R has glossy screen with Ultra Wide viewing angle while the Q70R has a semi-gloss screen with standard narrow VA viewing angle. The Q80R is also brighter, has double the FALD zones for better HDR, and has a much better anti-reflective coating. But it is a bit over your budget at $1,700 for the 65" Q80R vs. $1,200 for the 65" Q70R.

If the Q80R is too expensive, the 65" Sony 900F is an alternative to the 65" Q70R for the same price. Similar semi-gloss narrow viewing angle VA panel with similar FALD performance, great 720p upscaling, no VRR support but otherwise good for gaming, and a bit brighter with a better anti-reflective coating.

Yea it’s a tough call with all the TVs being a few hundred difference

Q70R $1200
X900F $1200
X950G $1500
Q80R $1700
Q90R $2200

Would it be worth considering the TCL 6 series 65” ($1000) or the Vizio p series quantum x 65” (1500) or should I stick with the above mentioned TVs?

X900F gets my vote as well (biased, I purchased one in April). Can probably get it for less, check Greentoe.

Could you explain to me why you would pick the X900F over the Q70R. They are both the same and from reviews I thought the 70 was better?

They can't both be the same and one be better...

https://www.rtings.com/tv/tools/comp...g-q70r/585/782

Because I use the TV in a room with large windows and watch a lot of sports. And I was able to get the X900F at a much lower price as it is a 2018 model.

YMMV.

Motion, brightness and processing in general. Aspects like gradients can't be beat on a better Sony. At RTINGs the Q70 is rated 0.1 higher but the 900f loses points for no 60hz BFI when in reality, their BFI implementation is the best in the business. 70 has somewhat better contrast but unlike the previous Q7 series which were awesome in this respect, reflection handling is worse than the Sony.

Thanks everyone for their help so far. One last question, with Black Friday coming up if I could get a good deal and upgrade above the x900F would the vizio p series or Sony x950F be my best bet or at this point should I get spend a little extra and go with the Samsung q80r? Also with all of these models would the average consumer (me) but able to tell the difference visually between and of them.
