Need Help Choosing a New TV

edited November 8 in The Clubhouse
Our home theater is our main TV room and as such, we put a lot of hours on the projector lamp fast. We currently have an Epson Powerlite 8350 PJ. Although We've gotten the most hours out of the current lamp, it is time to replace it again. AT $300 each time we replace it, were thinking of biting the bullet and going to a flat screen TV.

Our current setup is a 92" fixed frame 16:9 screen and it's tight. I'm also thinking going from the PJ and screen to an actual TV would make viewing possible without having to dim or completely shut off the lights. Is there any reason why anyone would recommend against going from a PJ to a TV?

Can anyone recommend a good flat screen in the 75"-85" range that won't completely break the bank? Would like to go 4k, but do not need a "smart" TV.

Hoping with Black Friday looming, prices will come down. My first search turned up the Samsung UN82NU8000 around $2600. Is this a good option? Thinking holiday sales should make something 80+ inches in the $2000 ballpark a reality.

Open to suggestions.

    So here are my thoughts and I'm sure a lot of people won't agree.

    For the price, I would go with a 75" Vizio P-Series. The list price is $1999 for the 75", but you'll get a better price at Costco. For Black Friday it might even be cheaper at Costco. Buy a membership if you don't have one and it will pay off. You will get 2 years on the warranty and if you have a Costco Credit card (VISA) for the purchase they will extend it to 4 years. If you don't like the TV, bring it back within 90 days for a full refund. You can also request a full refund for your Costco membership if you got one just for the TV. There is no downside to purchasing from Costco in my opinion.

    I have 4 Vizio TVs and have never had an issue with one of them. One is 9 years old and still looks great.

    We purchased the P-Series last year and I really like it. 4k, HDR10 and Dolby Vision Support. We paid $1199 for a 65" set.

    Now, will it compete with the top of the line Sony, LG and Samsung? Probably not in all categories. But for the price vs. performance I think it's a win. Like I said, if you end up not liking it, you have 90 days to return it - no questions asked. Heck, even if you don't go with Vizio, purchase through Costco just for the 90 day return policy and extra warranty.

    I'll agree with the Vizio P and M series being fantastic bangs for the buck.

    Just with any TV, be sure to have it calibrated after some burn in.

    I wanted similar budget constraints but after going out and looking at the larger sets a few years ago I realized I couldn’t live with them at that kind of investment. The Sony sets really get a lot right for me still.

    I had a 120” screen and found that 75” is plenty big for a TV. Don’t feel like you have to get that extra size if it really means you are sacrificing quality that matters to you. The TV seems to dominate a space much easier than a pj screen does.

    Thoughts on the newish QLED tech? My son picked up a 75" Samsung yesterday at Costco for under $2k. I saw them in the store and the picture was really nice.

    I have a Samsung 4K and to be honest the picture could be better, it is good but the blacks are as dark as they could be. From my viewing and opinion I feel Sony has one of the best pictures I have seen. LG is amazing too but I have had MULTIPLE issues with reliability on their models so I stay away.

    Either way go with something that has HDR, it makes a huge difference.

    With Black Friday coming up one thing to keep in mind. The low end tvs are the ones that are normally on sale. There are some exceptions, but I wouldn’t count on it.

    That said, I agree with the Vizio P-series, but you also said that this was more of a home theater room. If you have a lot of seating off axis, greater than 20 degrees, you may want to look at tvs with IPS screens. These would be LG, and the Sony 850 series.

    The down side of IPS screens is they don’t get as black as VA screens when viewed directly in front of screen. Most will appear as dark or darker than your projector, Black levels are a major factor in reviews, and this is a big reason few if any give them great ratings. The casual to average viewer probably wouldn’t even notice the lack of black levels.

    In 75 inch sizes the Sony 850 series is $2300, and is worth the extra cost compared to the LG SK8000 series at $2000. I would suggest one of these, unless everybody is within 20 degrees of center when viewing. Then I would go with the Vizio
    P-series.

    Samsung, in general, I really have mixed feelings about. Just personal bias here, and many will probably disagree, but I would go with Sony, LG, or Vizio before Samsung.

    Thanks for the input so far. This is exactly the kind of information I’m looking for.

    We currently have two Sony 40” LCD TVs (guest BR and bar), a 42” Panasonic Plasma (master BR), a 27” Vizio LCD (kitchen), and a 42” Samsung plasma (currently not being used) that our neighbor gave to us when she moved. I have nothing bad (experience wise) to say about any of these brands.

    Our theater is 20’ deep and slightly less than 10’ wide, so viewing angle is fairly straight on. I’m not opposed to going down to 75” from the 92” screen it it means better quality. We don’t have a Costco anywhere near us (think the nearest one is over 3 hours away), but we do have a Sam’s Club.

    I’ll have to look into the Vizio P series and the Sony 850 series.
  • joecoulsonjoecoulson Posts: 725
    Qled or oled is best for viewing angle as an extra FYI. Love some Sony and agree 75 is really all you need unless your 15-20ft away
    I wish I had gotten the Oled now but I’m still happy.

    Unfortunately, you can't always just reference brands and not models. There are significant differences between Samsung's lower end UHD sets and the QLED models. LG OLED models are really nice and I haven't heard of any reliability issues. Their lower end models, on the other hand...

    If its any consolation, I went from basically the same projector to my TV (Epson 8100 to Sony 75X940C) and gave up the PJ for the exact reasons you mention. I haven't regretted that decision once. I would've been happy with the 850 series if budget was an issue at the time - my parents have a 65" 850C and its still a darn fine TV.

    I’ve got a Sony x930 65”. I went through pretty much every tv when I purchased mine, it was between the Sony’s and the Vizio p series, the new p series quantum is a great looking tv.

    Of course! You are certainly entitled to your opinion. I don't deny anyone that. I didn't mean to imply it either.

    I don't own a Samsung, but I've seen A LOT of them. You're right that the picture could be better, and there are a few examples of that higher up the Samsung line. The 6000 series is from their standard UHD line. Then there's the premium line... much better. And then the 4K QLED... even better. Oh, and now 8K!?!?!

    Man at this rate we will never be able to keep up. I actually have two Samsung 4k sets at my place (One is being held for a family member that moved), the curved isn't bad and works great in my living room and the curve keeps glare to a minimum. The flat screen (a year newer but don't know the model number) looks much better but nothing compared to what I have seen Sony and LG put out (albeit they could have been higher end models, I just pass by).

    I mean I do enjoy my TV but I have seen and heard Sony being the better choice screen wise.

    Lots of Sony fans here. They make a nice TV, no doubt. Personally, I'm hooked on LG's OLED models. My standard line is this - pick out a nice TV at the store based on the best within your budget (whatever you think the best is) in comparison with other TVs on display. Take it home and compare it ONLY to the other TVs in your room! Then, enjoy some good shows, sports, movies, or whatever you're into. :)

    Oled TVs are great if you have light control in your room and you get a good panel. I bought two 65” LG OLEDs last year and they both had problems out of the box that were unacceptable. Unsure if the qa has been better on the 2018 models but dirty screen effect on light colors is a common issue on a large percentage of oled models

    I believe the QLEDS have addressed that issue from last generation OLEDS. The newer Qleds have about the best picture I've ever seen. They also hit that middle ground between Oleds being a bit dark, and LED'S being a bit too bright. Keep that in mind and the room you plan on using which technology in.
