You guys are much better with this techie stuff than me, but I've decided to buy a 4K TV, and from reviews and stuff, I'm getting the sense that this is the one.

What so you guys think? And if not this one, any recommendations?

looks good, I personally love the newer TVs, I really want one, but I'm too cheap to get one.

This is the one I want, who wants to loan me 3000 dollars that you won't get back? Deal of a life time! Making me happy!

They had this one set up in the store with the PS4 hooked up to it, oh god.... it makes the TV I use for games now look like a steaming pile of shit. But then I bought that TV 10 years ago. Still good for what I want it for.

Yes! Of all the available TVs, that is the one I would buy. Just a liiittle too steep, though.

I'm trying to get my family to split on the price and get it for me for Christmas. lol

They probably won't :(, but a man can dream!

Hopefully by next year in November it will go down a lot in price by at least 1000 dollars and then have a sale of at least another 500 off during black Friday sales, around 2000 dollars is the highest I will spend on a TV, then I would buy it.
I'm patient so I don't mind the wait.

Plus I make my TVs last, if the screen isn't wrecked and it still shows the right colors, I'm golden with it.

we had one TV for over 25 years before we got rid of it lol It even had buttons that fell off of it, I had to use a mighty max figure to press the button inside the TV with it lol Only thing I could find at the time that could easily press it.

Wish I knew more about pricing of TVs and how good of a deal that is. But that TV looks good. And I've had my old (2011) TV from Samsung serviced by Samsung under warranty. They sent someone to my house who swapped out the actual screen (not the entire unit). I was quite impressed with their service and handling of the situation.

So yeah, looks like a good TV. The only thing I can really say is that I heard Samsung is expecting their Quantum Dot tech to be the 'new hotness' in a few years, being even better than OLED tech. But honestly, that kind of stuff won't be affordable for 3-5 years anyways. :P

Looks like a decent TV but I have never been a huge fan of Samsung. The quality always seems a bit lower than, say, Panasonic. I can't get the cheapness of the Samsung brand out of my head.

So are curved TVs dead? I see less and less of them. Good riddance.

affordable and probably better quality too has they enhanced the tech and make it better.

I remember the first Sony OLED TV, the blue pixels on it died in 7 years, but they made those better now and that TV was over 21,000 dollars for a 19 inch.

Curved screens are going away and 3D TVs are all but gone. 4K will be the new norm. VR will also eventually fade out (not that that has anything to do with TVs).

There's a $1200 Vizio series M 70inch 4k I am eyeballing. I really want it.....but not that knowledgeable in TVs to know if it is a good deal. My inlaws have Vizio and it is a great TV so I may jump at it. I've had a Sony 55inch 1080p for 8 years and I paid way too much for just a name.

I find that if you don't know what to look for in a TV, just find out if people like that one and read their comments about it, I usually find that the techy people who really pay attention to this stuff are usually right, but they normally mark down their reviews of a TV for not being up to their standard.

and personally, I hate Sony's TVs, I think they have horrible quality in the screen, my brother bought a 52 inch high end sony TV about 5 years ago and it had so many pixel artifacts on the screen that it was really distracting. He paid over 3000 dollars for it cause they THINK they like sony as a brand, but really its just cause that's all they know.

I bought at the same time, a LG 42 inch LCD tv for 400 dollars and my TV looked 20 times better than his. Still works to this day and I love it, great TV.

But that LG OLED TV I have the link to up there, oh god, that TV looks fucking fantastic its like I was blind before and I was seeing for the first time in my life. The first TV that actually made me go wow.

I have a little LG TV/monitor (actually labeled as a computer monitor because TVs that size only go to 720p and I needed 1080p). It was just under $100 or so. The quality is not very good AT ALL. It brightens and dims automatically depending on what's on the screen and I cannot turn that "feature" off. The menu system is also really tough to navigate and sucks all around. Thankfully I only need it for framing purposes so we can see how we're framed, etc. And for some reason it has overscan. WTF?

Personally, I'm gonna wait. Prices will come down and the leap from HD to 4K is nowhere noticeable as the leap to HD. Not worth the thousands they cost at the moment IMO.

You can get 4K TVs pretty cheap, my bestbuy has them for a 55 inch for 499.99. It's just if you want higher end specs and features of your TV they will go into the thousands.

If you want a 4K TV that works for PS4 PRO and Scorpio, you should get one that supports HDR10 format.

If this goes on sale during boxing day sales, I will probably pick this one up.

Got it all hooked up, love it.
Picture is awesome on it even older content.
I got the Netflix app to run 4k videos and youtube over it, since I don't have any other 4k content to run on it. Looks good considering it's compressed video.

can't wait to get some 4k blurays to try it with. Sucks that my TV company doesn't have their receivers to do 4k, like bell Canada's receiver can. But, Bell Canada can suck my dog's dick.

Game Sack has one 4K video shot and edited in 4K. Our N64 part 2 video. It's only a month or two old and is in Youtube in 4K. Since you need an app for that it would probably be pointless to provide a link here.

cool, I will find it, it has youtube built onto it and runs videos on 4k. Even has a tab of videos in 4k.

Well!

Haha. You see, after I saw the reviews of the PS Pro I just called the whole thing off and didn't get it or the TV. Anticlimax.

Just got a PS4 Pro and Final Fantasy XV for an LG 4K tv that is similar to spider-prime's. It took me less than 2 minutes to set up. Unbox it, plug in hdmi and power and power on. Easiest set up of my life. FFXV in upscaled 4K is a huge and noticeable improvement unless you don't like things looking overly nice, crisp and defined.

I can vouch for it. Just don't get a Vizio and you should be fine.

I'm honestly more excited about HDR than 4k.
