Anyone found any amazing deals yet? A lot of ads finally started coming out.

I'm looking for a good 65 inch 4k smart TV, maybe a nintendo switch. Always up for hunting and fishing stuff as well. Bought a bunch of video games last year during it.

Whatcha got?

As someone who has both in their house, I owned a roku first, I prefer the Fire devices for my personal use but for someone who is completely tech illiterate or likes youtube roku is an easier choice.

Like I'd give a roku to my parents before a fire because I don't want phone calls everyday on how to work it.

I also got Detroit Become Human for 20 bucks and I picked up a projector so a solid black friday for me.

Well I cut the cord a long time ago but even with cable they offer a lot of cool things like being able to stream stuff without using your computer to do it.

I have an E and M series. The picture is very similar on both, but the sound is much better on the M series. I put the E series in the room that we watch more TV in, but with a surround sound system.

The M remote is also much better.

Essential phone put out a decent enough sale Monday that he chose to go that route.

After multiple Rtings searches, hours of reading, and learning more about TVs than anyone ever should, I went with the original decision Samsung QLED Q7 75" 4k HDR...

For $2,200, on ebay, buy now, free shipping, a full $400-500 better than anything I saw on BF/CM.

OLEDs were way too pricey and had burn-in risk, and full backlight arrays were also too expensive or laggy/slow for gaming. Samsung seemed ideal for the Xbox One X's abilities and quick sports footage.

However, I'm sure any 4k 75" will look amazing next to my 1080p 55".

How much better is the QLED than the 80” Vizio XLED?

There are enough 'protection' options on the OLED's these days that I took the risk anyway. The pixel shifting isn't foolproof but it should to a ton to avoid that sort of thing and I've never noticed it doing it. I'm still not gonna leave any of the apps paused (DirectTV has a screensaver of its own; not sure about things like Netflix, etc...), so I wouldn't tempt fate. But I'd imagine you'd have to screw up pretty badly for a real problem.

Got it on Wednesday. Holy shit man, these things are incredible. My TV in the basement is a nice Samsung w/ the HDR and all that stuff and it's just not the same animal. That OLED technology is nuts.

I threw "The Nightmare Before Christmas" on because it was streaming quality and I figured the claymation and darker color palate would be a perfect test bed. It was just unreal. I ran the 'coral seas' episode of Blue Planet II on it next and what the deeper blacks do to create contrast with the more vibrant colors is spectacular.

It's a remarkable advancement in what these televisions can do. It's outpaces anything my DirectTV can put through it by far but when I flip over to any of the streaming services or even throw up some quality clips off Youtube, you see just how sharp that TV can get.

If you're gonna spent over $1,000 on a TV, go ahead and splurge for the OLED set. Sony's do a few things slightly better than LGs (their processors are better) but they do a few things worse as well. Only Sony and LG are using it since LG owns the rights and would only sell them to Sony. In for a penny, in for a pound at this point. I understand if the goal is to just get a massive TV at the lowest reasonable price point but if you're looking in the 55'' range or even maybe 65'', the upgrade cost is substantial but worthwhile.

You start to get up beyond that (the 77'' is damn expensive even with the discount), I can see reaching a puke point but beyond that I have a hard time arguing that the juice isn't worth the squeeze there.

I’m having a very hard time pulling the trigger on a new tv. It will be going into a room that doesn’t currently have a TV and to put one there at all I think it needs to be an 80”. I’m down between the Samsung listed here for $2500 and the Vizio for $2000. Should I spend the extra $500? I’m finding conflicting reviews.
