75” Dolby vision TV under $2000

Hi all-

I am on the hunt for a new tv since I am about to move into a new home. I have about 2 weeks to make a decision. The new TV will be used in the living room. The display will mainly be used for sports/Cable/movies. I would like the display to be 75” & have Dolby vision.

Sources will be 4K Apple TV and I’ll be purchasing a new blu ray player. The signal will be passed through my denon x4300h.
I would like to stay under 2000 dollars.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks

Newegg has the 75 900f for a few hundred more more than that right now. Other than that, you're looking at Vizio or TCL. Vizio is cheap a Costco right now. Sony wins big on motion, reliability less quirks and panel lottery. Vizio has best contrast. TCL is also viable.

IPS set with mediocre contrast. If you have a hard limit of $2,000, I would go with the TCL 6 series and have $500 left over.

My humble main system:
Vizio M75-E1; Oppo 203 universal UHD player; Denon 4300H AVR, Dual PSA S1801's; Monitor Audio Silver RX-6 mains, RX center, and RX surrounds; one pair NHT mini Atmos speakers; Home-built HTPC (Xeon E1230, 16gb RAM, Crucial M500 480gb SSD, GeForce 980Ti, Corsair CX600, CoolerMaster mini-ITX case); Roku Premiere+; Amazon 4K Fire TV

It's an edge-lit IPS panel with poor local dimming. IPS means grayish blacks with better than VA panel off-angle viewing, but still color and brightness loss starting around 30 degrees off angle. Edge dimming doesn't perform very well so HDR will be mediocre if that matters to you. I'd go with the recommendation of the FALD VA panel Sony 900F if you can find it for a good price. Sony has decent dimming processing, with top notch upscaling and motion control. The Vizio F and TCL 6 have QC issues which might require a return or two.

Sounds like the Sony X900F is really the way to go for a little more. $2000 isn’t a hard limit. A couple 100 bucks for a better tv over the next 5-8 years is worth it

The Sony 75" is $2800 - that's a bit more than couple hundred! I'm confused why its even in consideration unless you mean the 65" version?

I didn't want to list the price but I said Newegg had it for a few hundred over his # in the 1st response. $2300 free shipping with 14 hours to go.

I'd wait for the reviews on the Vizio PQ X, even if it might be out of your price range, because it might be worth the extra cost depending on reviews and it's actual value versus performance. We are also slightly past the traditional release date for not only the top end Vizio, but also TCL and Hisense. Not only will these be great performance for the dollar TVs coing at 75"+ this year, but they will steeply force down (depending on reviews) the prices of everything currently out there including the top end Samsung 900 series.

All thanks for the help. I actually ended up going with the LG SM9070. But im unfortunately having some trouble with getting the Dolby vision to work.

Source is Apple TV 4K
Receiver is denon x4300h

I can get 4K at 60hz but it just won’t work with 4K Dolby vision. Any thoughts would be very helpful.

Thanks

I think it is a gorgeous TV. Very bright with wide viewing angles. I watched some 4K HDR content and was extremely impressed. BTW a 75” is HUGE.

Now if I can just get Dolby vision to work.

In general, it seems like most people's issues with pushing the bandwidth come from having HDMI cables that don't support the full 18Gbps, but come a tiny bit short. The general advise is to use Monoprice or Amazon Basics "Premium Certified" cables. Note that's a specific trademark term, not a generic. They should each have a QRcode logo on them. But if you're using cables that don't have that mark, they're likely not able to pass the full 18Gbps.

The other issue might be buried in the settings, will need to check your manual for the TV, Receiver and Apple TV to be sure.

Does it work if you connect the AppleTV directly to the TV? That will help rule out configuration issues with the receiver, at least.
