new tv for the game

Alright, who else besides me decided this was the perfect reason to get a new tv? I've been watching a 40" Vizio for over a decade. It's manufacture date is 4/2007. This was the perfect excuse to upgrade.
Just hooked up a 55" Samsung curved screen 4K UDR and turned on about an hour ago. I know it's not the bestest out there but it's a major upgrade for me. Who else decided to upgrade?

I didn't update for this game but I recently picked up a 65 inch 4k TV for $369 and I couldn't be ****ing happier with it.

Though not a household brand name... I've used sceptre brand TVs and monitors for nearly 15 years now and I find them to be an exceptional value. My 4k movies look fantastic on this screen.

I'm hoping my rural internet connection will allow me to keep up with the 4k stream from fox.

I did. Made a post about it in the where you watching the game thread.

Samsung Qled 65”. My buddy bought one and liked it, so honestly I was just looking to upgrade my viewing experience requiring the least work possible. It is comically big for my living room but looks nice hanging on my wall.

I usually just rent a tv from a rent-a-center place.

Helps me afford my other monthly bills.

We try to buy a tv every 10 years whether we need it or not.

Upgraded to a 65in P series Quantum X from a quite old 47in low end vizio series.

Just set it up tonight.

Itís going to be a great day tomorrow.

Grabbed a 65" LG OLED since they hit 2K. It's one of the best technology upgrades I have ever gotten for myself. It's difficult to fathom how much better a TV can get.

cant do it this year, but I'm most likely going to 75" 4K sometime this year. I have to convert everything to 4k ready this year, but getting congressional approval is tough.

Im looking at this for SB 55...

I need to replace my receiver as well and I love my Denon...I guess it's a matter of HDMI pass through.

Again... I cannot overstate how awesome Sceptre brand TVs are. This 75" is gonna have every bit as good a picture as the Samsung for literally half the price.

I have a 65" Samsung that was close to their top of the line 3-4 years ago.

I've been contemplating upgrading for one of my rooms, and was wondering how big of jump it would be from that samsung (that, when it gets a quality signal, it has a fantastic picture), to OLED.

I've heard the B9 or C9 LG OLEDs are phenomenal.....

honestly, its between that LG OLED at 65, or going samsung QLED at 75.

Would be interested in hearing your experience/take.....

Here too. I bought a QLED. I’m interested in the difference there to OLED.

No it won't. And I have a Sceptre as my basement tv. But there's a huge difference in quality between tht and a series 8 Samsung TV

I've had such a blessed year. When I got back from the Chiefs-Pats game in December, the company I work for (an AV company) gave me.... GAVE me...a 75" Panasonic digital signage monitor. It's a big ass TV that a school or church or similar place would mount on the wall. It's beee-utiful as Bill Grigsby would say. Game is gonna kick ass!

Prepare for a dissertation:

Here are some things to know about OLED if you have not done the research quite yet:

It's a "new"(ish) TV tech completely different from most market standards. Most panels (even QLED) is liquid crystal display/ LED with backlighting. This means that darker scenes will always have that sort of gray, black crushing going on because that backlighting will have an effect on the dark colors. The QLED has gone about as far as it can to mitigate this with it's numerous "zones" to where it can reduce or turn off those backlights. The higher model QLED models do have more zones I believe, and therefore a better image quality. One thing the QLED will handily beat OLED on, is brightness, and I am not sure it is particularly close.

Now that being said, OLED by most accounts will be objectively better, simply for the reason that the pixels in an OLED stand each emit their own light sources. That means the color gamut will essentially be infinite, since each pixel on your screen can turn itself off. When I say it produces perfect black colors, I mean it is perfect. I have never seen anything close to this outside some of the top end plasma sets from back in the day. Everything just pops. Watching kids movies (as I have 2 little ones) in 4k Dolby Vision is a real treat, but live action is even better. Jack Ryan is just astounding. You can see EVERYTHING.

The refresh rate for these is top notch. (Sort of a side note, but the C9 is widely considered the best gaming TV, and has support for HDMI 2.1 which future proofs for 4k/120 FPS content) The super bowl was mind blowing, with no ghosting and hardly any artifcating. I can only imagine how much better it would look in true 4k HDR (and not upscale like we got). My brother has a 75' QLED Q6, and while beautiful in closups and slower action moments, there is quite a bit of ghosting/artifact action going on at high speeds that would have given me serious buyers remorse if that TV was mine. I dont know if that could be fixed with fine tuning or not.

The only down side to owning an OLED is burn in potential. This was more of a concern in earlier models, as the C9 has pixel shift and other mitigating factors. There are numerous articles referring to extreme stress tests with no burn in, but it COULD be an issue. The effects of burn in are cumulative, so if you play games or watch too much of a channel with static images, it might happen several years down the line, but newer model OLEDs are going to be much less susceptible to this, if at all.

Bottom line take away here: my wife hates my tech buying habits, and the need to have the latest and greatest. We had our LG Infinia TV for almost a decade, and it was a fabulous TV. But the 65" OLED TVs have hit a sweet price of $2K, and I convinced her to pull the trigger. She is smitten with the picture quality, and if she approves this highly of a tech purchase, my personal opinion is it will be an 11/10 for anyone who is into tech as much as I am. There is no situation I would not recommend OLED. If you have the money, dive in head and feet first, find 4k content (I highly recommend picking up a $25 fire TV stick, and run it through a 4k pass-through capable receiver for a minimum of 5.1 surround) and enjoy what I think is the best audio/visual treat you can provide yourself.

Edit: for further clarification, I bought a C9. Better processor, and is about 15% brighter than the B9. Unfortunately the prices have jumped back up about $500 post superbowl. If you can wait, I imagine March/April should see another sizable drop when the c10 models arrive. From my research, the C10 will not offer the same dramatic update the that C9 offered over C8.

Thanks for this - sounds like we have similar approaches to tech and tv buying!

I had a panasonic plasma, and as you mentioned, it had great blacks, etc....but as you also mentioned, it succumbed to the burn-in issue after a couple nights falling asleep to a news channel (burning the logo into the bottom corner).

I've heard, as you also mentioned, that the LGs latest technology has done quite a bit to combat the potential for burn-in......and if I go that route, the tv will go in a room where it's highly unlikely I'd fall asleep to it (and I would take more precautions this time with sleep timers, etc.)

I'm also a gamer, so that would be a great fit!

Thanks again!
