[QUOTE=tmc8080;2788222]Deals seem to keep appearing for Vizio 4k tv’s… also LG,
but the best pictures IMO come from the Samsung HDR and Sony HDR sets!
These prices don’t drop like a stone often! I recently got the ks8000 series 55"
and the picture is pretty Amazing. It took me 3-4 hours looking at all the sets literally up close-- closer than you would normally look at them, from angles, etc. and the ks8000 series was my top choice, followed by the bravia 850d. Not even the overpriced OLED’s matched overall quality, IMO-- maybe the new ones coming out this year would amaze me, but still, not worth paying a PREMIUM for!
So, in decending order:
Samsung ks8000 series
Sony Bravia 850d or higher series (non OLED)
Vizio hdr series (forget the model #)
Hisense HDR (8c is 8-bit hdr but still pretty impressive on a budget 1/2 that of ks8000).
Anything else, your not in HDR price range (or it sucks)… looking at ~$500+ for an hdr set topping out around $1150 for 55" ± depending on size variation. I look at the ks8000 as a long term investment. IMO, sets can not get much better than that over the next 5 years… improvements in energy efficiency and max nits of HDR will come, but there will come a time when it’s overkill on aging eyeballs. My generation had analog TV’s and it twas good ‘enuff. Our minds filled in the gaps. Perhaps that’s why we see more ADHD in people. More is done for the minds’ convenience so they don’t work the same anymore![/QUOTE]
OMG! I never got my TV because “DELL” ruined my order I ended up double billed almost going over my credit limit… ugh! So because they wouldn’t solve the issue correctly I refused delivery of the TV. I then placed an order over at Amazon only for “PILOT Freight Services” to leave me with a TV not assembled because someone open the box and took out the screws while it was being shipped that TV is also going back for a full refund. Amazon has issued a decent gift card while I await my refund for all of the trouble I’ve had. Now I’ll wait awhile before buying any TV as for the comments above I agree Vizio, Sony look to have good black uniformity and Vizio seems to crank out a lot of features for your money. OLED appears to suffer from ghosting and very high energy use both of which are not attractive to me but I do love the colors and black uniformity while also having HDR & Dolby Vision on those sets. Again thanks to everyone for adding your feedback it will help me in the future when shopping for a TV set.
