1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung 78KS9500

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Size, & got a good deal on it.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Picture quality with 4K sources. Wow! Also, surprisingly deep blacks. Pretty cool remote too.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

Flashlighting/clouding. With a lower backlight like I use, it's not too bad. But when watching HDR content, the backlight automatically jumps to max and there is significant flashlighting on dark screens.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

It has all the features I need.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

Id rather hook my receiver direct to the TV - the OneConnect box just seems like an extra hop.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How big the box is!

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Had a strange issue the first day not being able to access some picture modes/settings.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

Up to 65" i think are at reasonable prices. When you want something larger like i did, prices skyrocket (excessively IMO).

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

Like other posters, I'm hoping for more 4K content sooner rather than later. I also wish manufacturers would give the option of a "non-smart" TV for a reduced cost, for those of us with HTPCs and the like. I don't need any built in apps, cameras, streaming services etc. but I'm paying for them regardless.

Samsung 78KS9500
Axiom M60 (x2) , Axiom VP150 , Axiom QS8 (x2) , SVS PB1000 (x2)
Yamaha RX-V581
PS4
HTPC (i3-2105 , GTX 1050)

1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung 65KS8000

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Reviewed as the best tv for a bright living room and then size and price point.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Looks real good

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

Trying to figure out HDR and Netflix on it.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Easier setup for HDR for sources.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

Make HDR more of an automatic change.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How damn good regular cable tv from directv looks. We had a 5+ year old 60" led sharp.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Figuring out why netflix looks so dark on titles.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

Yes, if you wait and pickup a closeout 2016 model. At full MSRP then no.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

The tv looks brilliant with the proper source material. If only I could get netflix to look like the demo videos from the HDR channel on youtube.

1. The "Model" you have.

Vizio P65

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

After extensive research and the good experiences I've somewhat had before with other vizio models. This tv gets high from a lot of people and I just dug the way the bezel looked compared to other sets.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

The set physically looks great in its "earth toned" settings. The metal bezel gives it a beefy look. The picture is of coarse great and its one of those sets you keep "playing" with and figuring out new ways to show off things


4. What you don't like about your LCD.

Its probably my first "big" set and it was a beast to transport.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Although completely being phased out, we are still somewhat of a cord cutter family and still have over the air antennas. This set of coarse has no tuner. Which I don't mind but it really challenges you to find a way via either roku or "chrome casting" to watch good television.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

I would suggest for them to cut back on the different variant/models (D, E, M, P series) to be cut. Its ridiculous just because one has one little thing different that it now has its own designation and the differences in price or leading to a lot of consumer confusion, which I'm guessing is to Vizio's benefit.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

Just how easy the setup was. I hit a few buttons on the tablet remote and everything was happening on the screen.
Felt like I was really entering in the future.


8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Just trying to figure out or toggle around the tablet remote. I'm still trying to get used to making settings changes to a specific port and wondering if this is changing something else somewhere else. It's not very clear on what is happening sometimes when you make these changes

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

They can be if you are diligent and don't just jump on the latest greatest. It's pretty amazing when I think back to the first flat panel that I bought a few years ago and to the amount I have had to learn now to get to know what I'm actually buying.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

Be patient. Do your homework.

1. The "Model" you have.
Sharp LC-60N6200U

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Price. 60" 4K for $199.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Great picture quality and good viewing angles (IPS screen). HDR-compatible (not true HDR, not bright enough, probably not WCG).

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Lack of Plex app. Poor black levels due to IPS screen.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
FALD to improve the black levels.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Improve cleanliness of the factory (see #8).

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
How thin the top 2/3rds of it are (1.75"). All my other budget TVs are a good 1/2" or more thicker.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
There is a ton of dust inside the screen that is visible from 10" away on an all-white screen. Not a deal-killer since not visible from 4+ ft away. Obviously not assembled in a very clean factory.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
At the $199 price I paid, I think this TV was more than worth it.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Really dislike that there is not a Plex app.

Picture quality with 4K HDR material

That it was in one piece - Such huge TV's tend to get damaged on the way.

The lower 2/3 of the screen show a perfect 3D picture, ther upper 1/3 shows doubles, not sharp 3D.

Absolutely. I paid Euro 3,000 for a Sony rear projector in 2006 and the picture was nothing compared to todays picture quality.

Will add more later when I know a little more.

By definition, everybody here has bought a set and is commenting on it. Economics 101 says that means they thought the price was "worth it". Otherwise the money would have stayed in their wallet. That's pretty much the definition of a free market transaction, you value "thing" more than the "money" you spent for it.

New Arrival Sony XBR55X900E

. The "Model" you have.

Sony XBR55X900E

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Reviews

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Picture Quality.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
A. The Remote

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
"S" Video Input
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Improve Menus and Remote and for this price include the owners manual that's only available online.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
None yet

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Sound Issues with my older pre HDMI Preamp Processor. Dolby Digital 5.1 is sometimes absent and you have to switch Audio mode or change channel on Direct TV to shock it back. Have had issues with Blu Ray audio as well.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Yes, it's all relative. TV I replaced was first generation 55" Mitsubishi 1080i Rear Projection I paid $3000 for in 2001. However, there's no way this will last even half that time.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Just had it delivered yesterday and still trying to figure out how to set to my liking.

Awesome $1000, 70"LCD,4k,HDR!!!

1. I recently purchased a Vizeo 70" 4k, HDR, multizone smart TV that is great even if it was 3 times the price!
2. It replaced a 65" 1080p Mitsubishi DLP series 3 chip tv. Anyone here in md you can have it for 30 bucks! It works perfectly, 2 years old. I just don't have the room.
3. It has all the bells and whisles you could ask for and CHEAP!
4. The ONLY con I've found in two months is the "Basic Remote" which doesn't do much at all! You have to have either a android phone or android tablet to use the "Vizeo Smartcast" app which is free.
My phone was too old so I opted for an 8" Asus Zen tablet which I love! The app also will not let you cast just any app. I wanted to use a Freq. analyzer on the tv as I tweaked my speaker location after running MultiEQ on my Marantz avr. Also I've seen some pretty good "YouTube" videos utilizing a frequency analyzer or Decibel meter on the tv as you listen to someones set up! I'd like to see more of that!
5. I like just about everything about this tv. It"s only 4 inches thick and 90 Lb's
Plenty of inputs/outputs-"ARC", Very nice picture with 4K upscaling. Tone of control like I've NEVER seen on a tv with the "smartcast" app.
If your a control freak this is the tv for you!
6. It's was available at Sam's club and Walmart.
7. After seeing mine two of five neighbors also bought the same Tv that week. And they Love it as well. Customer service was also surprisingly good. And the call center is in Texas.
8. If you buy one and a decent tablet or have a compatible phone already I do not believe you will regret it!

1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung "The Frame" 55" UN55LS003AF

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Loved that it mounted absolutely flush to the wall, has no visible logo from the front and is art when the TV is off.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Love the physical appearance of the set and the picture quality is pretty good.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
I don't like the edge-lit LCD, you can tell the edges are brighter than the middle. I also don't like the OneConnect fiber cable - makes me nervous.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Not sure that it is lacking any features that I need.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Get rid of the OneConnect box and Fiber cable (or offer a non-fiber cable) for those that have a way to run the cable through the wall that is less fragile!

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Its HEAVY for a 55" TV.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
Smart TV performance is slower than I thought it would be for a 2017 model. It should be as responsive as an AppleTV for being $2000.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Probably not, but the cool factor was worth a bit.

Smaller TV's are on the decline and the ones that are available aren't that great, unless you want to overpay.

Wow! I started this thread in 2006 and here is my third entry.


1. The "Model" you have.

Sony XBR65X930E

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Fear of burn-in on OLED, brightness (in a bright room), great reviews and price.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

The brightness and overall fantastic picture quality.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

Long wait and design of Dolby Vision over HDMI, requiring other component manufacturers to implement "Dolby Vision lite."

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Full Dolby Vision, eARC, and HDR on the built-in YouTube app.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

Don't advertise a feature that you are not sure how to properly implement.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

Off-axis viewing is not nearly as bad as some people describe.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Some motion artifacts on sports when watching from the cable provider. Streaming sports look great.

9. Do you really think that today's "Prices" are worth it.

A bit over-priced.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

Get them while they last as there has been no replacement announced. Sony seems to be steering people to the lower priced 900F or higher priced ..Z model.

Just purchased a Sony xbr75x900f. Hung it on the wall and have been looking at various content all day. From 4k ultra blurays, sports, and regular cable programing. All I can say is so far its an great tv. It has FALD and about 65 zones. It has the x1 extreme processor, x motion clarity, support for HDR10 and Dolby vision right out the box. Coming from a 65oledB6 I was hesitant to go back to LCD. Sony to me has always made good tvs so I decided to give it a try. Now this is only day one so I will follow up in about a month and see if anything has changed for better or for worse

1. The "Model" you have.

Sony XBR65X930E

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Fear of burn-in on OLED, brightness (in a bright room), great reviews and price.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

The brightness and overall fantastic picture quality.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

Long wait and design of Dolby Vision over HDMI, requiring other component manufacturers to implement "Dolby Vision lite."

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Full Dolby Vision, eARC, and HDR on the built-in YouTube app.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

Don't advertise a feature that you are not sure how to properly implement.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

Off-axis viewing is not nearly as bad as some people describe.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Some motion artifacts on sports when watching from the cable provider. Streaming sports look great.

9. Do you really think that today's "Prices" are worth it.

A bit over-priced.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

Get them while they last as there has been no replacement announced. Sony seems to be steering people to the lower priced 900F or higher priced ..Z model.
About dolby vision over hdmi, I had an LG 4k player and when I brought my new 900f it didn't pass DV over HDMI. You can get DV over Netflix, Apple 4k tv, and Oppo 203 4k player. Since I am an elite member at BB and I get 45 for any return, I took the LG back and got the Sony UBPx-700 with DV software update. Once installed I got DV over HDMI on my Sony tv

Size, & got a good deal on it.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Picture quality with 4K sources. Wow! Also, surprisingly deep blacks. Pretty cool remote too.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

Flashlighting/clouding. With a lower backlight like I use, it's not too bad. But when watching HDR content, the backlight automatically jumps to max and there is significant flashlighting on dark screens.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

It has all the features I need.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

Id rather hook my receiver direct to the TV - the OneConnect box just seems like an extra hop.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How big the box is!

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Had a strange issue the first day not being able to access some picture modes/settings.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

Up to 65" i think are at reasonable prices. When you want something larger like i did, prices skyrocket (excessively IMO).

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

Like other posters, I'm hoping for more 4K content sooner rather than later. I also wish manufacturers would give the option of a "non-smart" TV for a reduced cost, for those of us with HTPCs and the like. I don't need any built in apps, cameras, streaming services etc. but I'm paying for them regardless.
Vizio "V" series.

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Price

Size, & got a good deal on it at costco

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Price. sing this as a monitor for work, somw xbox1 gaming.

Picture quality with 4K sources. Wow! Also, surprisingly deep blacks. Pretty cool remote too.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

It's ver new, no real reviews. Vizio needs to get better info of tv on their website.

Flashlighting/clouding. With a lower backlight like I use, it's not too bad. But when watching HDR content, the backlight automatically jumps to max and there is significant flashlighting on dark screens.

NA????

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Even though on specs aheet on vizio website, says it says it has 1 billion colors, so does this tv support wide color gamut, yes i know it was only 289. what doyou expect.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

provide more data about tv.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How big the box is!

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Had a strange issue the first day not being able to access some picture modes/settings.

1. The "Model" you have.<br><br>


TCL 55R425


2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.<br><br>


Good reviews of the built in ROKU streaming and sale price.


3. What you like best about your LCD.<br><br>


Coming from a 46" screen the larger size is great and with adjustments the picture quality is pretty good.


4. What you don't like about your LCD.<br><br>


Remote is next to useless and took a while to get a universal one to work properly. Also do not like the use of a 3 to 1 cable adapter for composite video & sound.


5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.<br><br>


More variety of inputs and outputs, better remote, more free Roku streaming options that are actually worth watching.


6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.<br><br>


Please include a printed manual with the set, not just a setup guide. Provide a more useful remote. Move the legs inboard a few inches to allow use on a bigger variety of stands.



7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.<br><br>


Very lightweight.



8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.<br><br>


Set does not have component or S-video inputs, so I had to wait until I could find the correct adapter.


9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.<br><br>


Considering I paid 1/4 of what I paid when I bought my last set in 2008, yes
.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.


I learned after buying the TCL that the company is a Chinese state enterprise. Not too happy about that.

Sony 900F


2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.


The fine folks in the "help me decide" thread


3. What you like best about your LCD.


The picture quality coming from a 12-year-old DLPTV


4. What you don't like about your LCD.


The bill!


5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.


Android OS is slow, and I say that as someone who up until this TV ran a Google Nexus Player.


6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.


The Sony Shelf has to go go by default. I turned it off, but it was a huge waste of real estate.



7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.


The bezels. Dimensions on a spec sheet do not do justice to seeing them in your home.



8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.


Netflix takes a long time to load.


9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.


Yes, they do so much compared to what I had previously

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.


Wish the price scale for the larger version was not so drastic

1. The "Model" you have.
TCL 65R615

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Well, my 6YO Samsung just died on last week so it forced my hand. I went to CES and spoke with TCL at their press conference as well. Seemed the best value for the money currently and it was on sale for 800!

3. What you like best about your LCD.
fact that it passes DD+ through ARC to my Reciever and the 120 local dimming zones really make this thing pop. It also looks great with its brushed metal trim

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
Fact that it's not OLED but it's not this TVs fault. Just can't put my money into that tech yet since I use my TV a lot and burn in is still a thing. Also why are center stands not standard anymore? I had to rearrange my setup because it has these 2 tiny feet on either side now

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
HDMI 2.1 going forward

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Offer the option for a center stand


7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Just how much I notice the differance going from 1080 to 4k. Though I think it may be more the HDR and Dolby Vision making the biggest impact

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
While I like that it has roku built in, Not having a proper remote with multiple functions stinks. I have a harmony one which helps but ys it not the greatest.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
$800 for this is a great price. usually $1000 but best buy had a sale

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

the best time to buy a TV is when your previous one dies. I agonized over getting a 4K tv for years to replace mine but it just did not seem worth it. Now that i got my moneys worth out of my previous TV i am loving this new one without regret
Deputy Moonman and dad1153 like this.

TV = 60EH6000
Receiver = AVR-2312
5.1 Setup = 2 rb-51 ii, 1 rc-52 ii, 2 rs-42ii, 1 PA-120

1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung 75NU7100


2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Large size and super good price.


3. What you like best about your LCD.
The immersion factor, great for sports and movies.


4. What you don't like about your LCD.
It is an edge lit display.


5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
Dolby Vision, FALD, another composite/component input, but I can't complain at this price.


6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
I would say to make the extended warranty options a little more affordable.


7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Just actually physically seeing how big it looks in the living room.


8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
The first panel that I got had unacceptable backlight bleed at the bottom but this was dealt with in a quick and professional manner.


9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Absolutely, I got a really good deal on this set, I paid the same for it as I did for my 42 inch plasma in the spring of 2008.


10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
I had been looking off and on at getting a new TV for the past couple of years but glad I finally pulled the trigger.

Got a TCL 50S423 at Costco on sale before the Superbowl to use at our rental condo since they upgraded the cable service to HD. The day before the game, my 9 year old 46" Insignia that was outside on the covered patio refused to turn on. Luckily, I had the 50" in waiting, got it mounted, and saved the day for the party the next day. Happy with the picture and the Roku, will be getting another for the condo.

I just purchased the Samsung 75NU8000 today. Great price of 1499 for the 75", however this was at the Navy Exchange. Haven't picked it up yet, but just wanted to let anyone know who has Navy Exchange access, it's on sale for that price through tomorrow!
