A 65" is way too small for an 18 ft. x 16 ft. room connected to the kitchen in open layout. Even 85" is small especially for occasional watching from that attached kitchen. I'm sitting less than 8 ft. from my 65".
Different strokes, Dave. We sit 12 ft. from our 65. I never like the thought of a TV's size dominating an area that isn't a theater setting. 75" or 85" might be too much in this case. Anyway, it's up to the buyer's eyes and family plans. Cheers.

Hey everyone. Looking for recommendations on a new TV. Just finished out basement and have everything set up for a 5.1.4 setup. Currently have a 65in Vizio TV but want to go bigger. The viewing distance is about 15 ft. I think I want to get an 85in tv. Mostly for movies and of course my Packers. We have a really long couch that can seat about 10 people so I want everyone to be able to see the TV. What do you all recommend? There are so many options out there and I am just confused. QLED, OLED, LED, Series 7, 8 9. Samsung or Vizio.
Samsung Q80T 75", Sony X950H 75". Sony X900H 75", currently around $2200, $2400, $1800 respectively.

For 85", Samsung Q90T is currently a better deal than Q80T, at around $3500. Sonys would be around $3500, $2600.

Good luck.

Like you say different strokes but I can't see an 85" screen dominating an 18 ft. x 16 ft. room. From 12 ft., yeah I can see that an 85" could be a problem for some folks. My wife only wanted a 55" in our Family room/Kitchen area, which extends to over 30 ft. at the end of the kitchen. She sits around 10 to 12 ft. from the screen and is happy with that.

Costco will have 85X900H for $2,000 on 11/20/2020 with 5-year Sony warranty and additional 2 years if paid with citi credit card.

How is Sony X800H ? Currently 49 inch is on sale for $548 ? Oh and also how does it compare to Visio MQ7 which will be on sale for $349 on cyber Monday?

Edit: Which one would you go with for a casual watch at breakfast table:
Samsung TU700D (50 inch) - $349
Sony X800H (49 inch) - $548
LG UN7300AUD (50 inch) - $349
Visio MQ7 (50 inch) r $349

X800H has IPS panel.

Samsung TU8000 50" (VA panel) might be a thought, around $420.

Good luck.

Thanks . TU8000 is a good option for sure. Do you think it's bright enough to be used next to a window? I am planning on mounting it close to a corner on a wall which has 3 big windows on wall next to it

If you can't tame that window, another option would be Hisense H8G 50", around $430. May be harder to find though.

Awesome. It seems to have good RTINGS review. Its available on Amazon prime for $430 . Not too bad ! Thanks!
FWIW pre-calibration (out-of-the-box PQ) is so-so. If needed, rtings has settings for.

Good luck, have fun, stay safe.

Sold my B6 65'' and decided I want a bigger TV, so 85'' seems to be quite right for 13ft. My current choice stands between X900H and Q90T. The X900H is about 2900€ and Q90T is 5900€, but I'm pretty sure both will go down in price very soon. Is it worth throwing an extra 2000-3000€ on the Q90T, or is the difference so small that it's not really worth it? Main use will be movies, netflix and gaming(PS5) in a dim lit room(sometimes completly dark).

Bonus question, do you think 77'' is a bit small for 13ft?(Cause I can't say I'm not interested in the CX)

No, the Q90T is not worth double the price of the X900H.

Looks like we are starting to get a good idea of where prices are going to be for black friday.

My debate is 75" Sony X900H for $1600 from Crutchfield, 85" for $2000 from Costco or Samsung Q80T 75" for $2200 from Best Buy, since these are their already printed advertised prices I wouldn't expect them to drop any more.

Do you need wider viewing angles or have any need for top anti reflection performance? For both of those features, the Q80T is the better choice. If those are not your priorities, go look at both of them and decide for yourself. Also remember, if DV is a priority for you, Samsung does not support it.

Hey everyone. I've been looking at 75" Tvs for day time viewing in my sun-blasted great room. I would love to pick up the Q80T and call it a day, but the $2,200 price makes me pause.

The other two sets I am considering are the 75" TCL R635 and the 75" Vizio P series Quantum (Not the PQX version). Both of which I love the price of. Of those two, which do you like more? and why?

My sources:
65% Spectrum Cable Box (i think most of my cable channels (70%?) are broadcast in 720p so upscaling is kinda important to me)
20% Nvidia Shield Pro
10% XB1X
5% Sony ES1100X UHD Blu-ray player

Sound is extracted by my Marantz SR5012 and fed to my 5.1 KEF R series speakers.

Need some help deciding on a tv upgrade for my basement. Here are the particulars

room size: big open finished basement. Sectional couch with primary seats 10-12 ft away, behind sectional is open space for foosball and bar. There are windows along back wall but don’t let much light in

Budget - $2000-$2500

This room is mainly used for movie night or sporting events. Currently we have a Sony 65-xbr800b. It doesn’t have hdr and has ALOT of clouding and bad for sports. Really hard to see the football being thrown. It’s time to upgrade. I’m decently snobby when it comes to quality and came from only having Panasonic plasma TVs until my recent one blew up and I bought this Sony as a temporary which turned into 5 years. Anyway, new tv needs to be significantly better.

I’m debating due to the space. Stick with 65 in or go bigger, 75 or 85. I’ve attached current setup and one with the fake avr pic from Best Buy. My wife thinks the 85 will look ridiculous due to the built in wall that was built for 65in. However, due to the size of the room I think it needs to be 85in but I will admit the wall will look a bit funky. It would potentially block the avr, center channel and cable box/Apple TV above or it would block the electric fireplace below. Thought I’d see what others would think. By the way, really don’t want to go crazy and redo wall at this point so maybe I’m stuck with 65 due to aesthetics.

I’m leaning towards snagging the Sony 900h if I go 85in but I have no clue what to do if I stay at 65. Initially thinking LG CX but have been turned off by recent reviews of black crushing. We watch quite a few movies where that could be an issue. I want HDR, prefer 2.1 hdmi for future proofing and needs to be great for sports.

So, my questions to you all are what size should I go with and what TV should I go with based on your size recommendations.
