I wish I still considered 77" a large screen

The prices are getting really nice.

"Some day" this will also apply to 88" and larger...

You may want to check on that sales tax you paid. This is from Greentoe FAQ:

Does the offer price I enter include tax and shipping?
Yes, the price you offer includes the product, tax, and shipping costs. Consider the price you offer a “flat rate".

The vendor sent me counter offer, which was the $3999 price of the TV plus the sales tax. The invoice I received from them shows the break down and it is at the correct rate for my state.

I finally got my TV delivered on Saturday. The seller had to Baltimore, which is about an hour and change from where I live, on Friday 4/19, but the company contracted to deliver the TV didn't pick it up until the following Monday, then called be Tuesday 4/23 to tell me they only get out to my area once a week on Saturday. The good news is the TV arrived in great shape. I don't seem to have any noticeable color shift on content, there's no buzzing power supply and, aside from some chrominance overshoot during the opening of GoT, even really dark content doesn't appear to have any banding or uniformity problems. Other than the wait to actually get my TV from Baltimore the whole process was extremely positive.

Glad to hear you had a positive experience. Enjoy your new toy!

By your logic the significant number of offerings of 82/85/86 inch sets should have no market share.

You are not adding any meaningful input, only just an unsolicited opinion.

I think the 85" X900F brought the 80+ inch sets closer to mainstream in 2018. With an 88" LG Oled due this year, I'm thinking the 75/77 are soon to be the new 65's and by next year most people looking to buy will want 80+ if it's within their budget. I sit 11' from my 77" and I would definitely enjoy an 88" although I'm sure the price will be much higher than I'm willing to pay for some time. 85" LCD's are quite reasonable however.

He didn't say all. He said most. It is absolutely true that most TVs are under 77" still. Will that change in the future. Maybe.

No, not maybe - almost certainly . The only questuon is how long it will take for the average TV size to reach 75/77", 50 years, less than half that, until the next century?

Average TV size has increased from 40.4" in 2015 to a forecasted 48.5" in 2021: https://www.statista.com/statistics/...ize-worldwide/

Actual data through 2017 shows an average increase of 1.2" per year, hence another 24 years (from 2017) to reach 77". But the forecast show the rate of screen size increase slowing to half that level in 2021, so it could take 50 years or more to reach an average screen size of 77"...

Aside from these odd internet retailers, when do we think we will hit cost minimum (month) for the 77 C8 at the authorized retailers.

November (unless you want to include closeput next Spring, which is a total crapshoot...).

I saw this posted elsewhere (with pix to confirm).

Deerfoot Meadows Costco in Calgary, AB has 2 clearance units of the 77" C8 available for CAD$5699.00. That's only US$4230.

No, I got a counter offer for $4,499.

I tried $4,250 and no response.

I ended up accepting the counter offer of $4,499 yesterday.

Probably not the greatest deal of all but I am ok with it. It is coming from a well known reputable and authorized dealer.

I am a little nervous that delivery goes ok.

BestBuy just matched the price.

If you are seriously considering the B&H deal, you can save the sales tax (if charged in your state) by signing up for their "Payboo" credit card. Just be sure to pay it off immediately, otherwise it's 30% APR and no bargain at all.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/credit-cards

Of course, if Best Buy price matches $4000 and gives you 10% off when you sign up for their credit card, that might be better (plus local for exchange if needed). Their APR is like 28% or something, so be careful with that as well (sometimes they'll do no interest for a while, but they'll try to get you eventually).

Not sure if these CC applications will ding your credit rating, so perhaps not ideal if you are about to mortgage something or apply for a large loan.

Most credit card applications will elicit a hard inquiry, so yes, you'll be dinged for a temporary amount of time anyway. I didn't know that was the method that Payboo utilized to escape sales tax (some congress critters of the socialist persuasion want to make that ensuing APR illegal...). For the 24 months of 0% APR from Best Buy, you won't be saddled with the prorated interest by Citi (Best Buy's issuer) as long as you pay it off in 24 months, or complete a balance transfer of whatever's remaining by that time.

This discussion on screen size neglects to mention one VERY important thing -> as screen size goes up, true image resolution (NOT merely upconverted resolution on a high resolution screen) must go up - or the picture is going to look kindof cr*ppy if one is not sitting way back from it.

True 4K-on-up is the name of the game with the sizes being talked about here. Where is one going to get that kind of high resolution source material day after day for all kinds of (interesting) viewing?

A case in point .... our tiny 65 inch screen requires true 4K source material in order to be really stunning - and that is at our 15 feet back viewing distance.

The above is the main reason I like to sit way at the back in commercial theaters - so that my eyes/brain are tricked into seeing an image that looks half-way decent detail-wise.

Well-mastered 1080p sources can still look fanfookingtastic upscaled on a 77" screen in my experience, even from 10 feet out.

15' may be too far from the optimal viewing distance for 4k material on a 65" TV. You might try sitting closer to 8' to get a larger field of view angle.

Well done. I have a friend working in the Magnolia section and he got a matched price pretty quickly but I won't get it till May 30. Darn.
