Wrong thread. I tried to delete my post but cant figure how to do so.

I have (possibly) narrowed my choices down to the Vizio P75QX-H1 and Samsung QN75Q80TA for my living room and trying to make a decision as to which one will be the better choice. I honestly think I will be happy no matter which one I get but I keep second guessing. I know the Vizio has all HDMI 2.1 ports and the Samsung only has one. Also the Vizio has Dolby Vision where the Samsung does not. I am not sure the dolby vision will matter all that much to me. I plan on using the TV for 50% gaming and 50% Movies/TV/Streaming. I have a PS4 but plan on getting a PS5 at some point so HDMI 2.1 is preferable. I am not a sports fan. The living room is light controlled so no worries about glares and such during daytime use. Another point I am hanging on is the brightness between the two. I have read the Vizio can get much brighter than the Q80T which helps in HDR but the Vizio also has a red tint to it. Would like to stick to the about $2,000. I could go more if I really wanted to but if I start reaching into the mid $2Ks I might as well go to and 85". Ugh....

Anyone have any thoughts or opinions?

Just got a new LCD Flat Panel? Post it here ONLY. Please do not post projection models.


Tell me the following:


1. The "Model" you have.

TCL 55" 5-Series (55S535)

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Price-to-performance value.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Smooth gradients (no banding). Coming from an old 1080 Samsung plasma with horrible banding (PN50B860).

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

Not quite as much pop as I'd like and picture needing a fair amount of adjusting tweaking (still doing it).

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

More local dimming zones, but I guess that's what the 6-series is for.


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

Consider adding HDR10+ in addition to Dolby Vision and make HDMI 2.1 compliant.


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

No film cover on the screen! Not a big deal, but it was a surprise!

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

Still fiddling with picture settings. Have had to tick gamma down a bit. Considering customizing white balance but need a good reference image to do so. I understand that's on this site somewhere.

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

When I bought my Samsung plasma back in the day, I plunked down almost $2000 for it. I spent about $450 for this TV, so yeah, the price is very much worth it considering the jump from 1080 to 4K and a better-than-expected picture quality. That said, the TCL still pales in comparison to the old plasma in terms of contrast and viewing angles. The color vibrancy isn't so bad, especially once I get used to it. It's a bit flatter and more muted than the plasma, but that's what I get for "downgrading."

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

Would say that the TCL 5-Series offers great bang-for-your-buck performance, especially if you catch it on sale (like I did when it dropped to $418 on Amazon for half of a day). I just hope this TV will last years as I only recently tossed out my old plasma after using it for well over a decade.

I just got the P75Q9-H61 which is a bit scaled back version of the P75QX. It has some of the best color and contrast I've ever seen on an LCD, something I would expect out of a high end OLED; overall picture is jaw-dropping. But I am having problems with annoying poor greyscale uniformity - tho this is something the P75QX is apparently better at; and the HDMI handshaking for HDR is glitchy, having problems with both panasonic 4k players and Chromecast. I am going to try to see if I can somehow trade it for a P75QX and hopefully get a better panel. Samsung I feel you dont get as much for your money.

1. The "Model" you have.
Sony 85" X800H

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
Size and price combination, and brand preference.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
Size - I sit 13' away and often watch from 20'+ while in the kitchen.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
- Cannot setup the remote to use my cable box, Hotwire Communications, Technicolor box.

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

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

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
Weight - about 95 lbs without stand. I was accustomed to the 48" I could tuck under one arm, or the 60" that I could install myself on the wall.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
- Movies streamed using Plex, using Android TV is choppy and sometimes missing audio - it's unusable. Plex via my Roku works just fine.

9. Do you really think that today's "Prices" are worth it.
Yes. $1,699 for an 85" is quite the deal, in my mind. I paid $2,100 for my Sony 52" back in 2009, and $900 for the Vizio 60" in 2014.

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

1. The "Model" you have.
Sony 65" XH90. 65-KDXH9005BU.

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.
I thought it was the best value for money compared to the Samsung Q90T and LG CX.

3. What you like best about your LCD.
The HDR PQ in Games and Dolby Vision Content.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.
All the bugs and the whole 4K 120 Fiasco.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.
If it gets all the promised features, then there would be nothing to add really.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.
Fix the bugs and provide the promised features working correctly.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.
I was very surprised at the impact of the HDR using the Full Array Dimming.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.
As mentioned above, Bugs. Green Flashing in DV Content. Back Light flashing in Terrestrial TV content. Sound Dropping. 4K 120 Blur.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
No.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
I think if the bugs were sorted out and the features that are promised are given, this is a fantastic steal at the price paid and at that point, Sony should be commended for such a fantastic Set. Until that happens they need a boot up their backside to sort it all out.
