New TV time. Suggestions?
Posted 10 September 2016 - 01:31 AM
I'm so out of the loop with display tech it's not even funny. Been rocking the Kuro since 2009 and though she's served me well all these years, it's probably time I embrace a display with some more modern features.
From what I've seen HDR is as big a deal (if not more) than 4k itself. If you are looking at using this display for gaming and you want to make good use of HDR I suggest you start looking on forums regarding which has the best implementation of HDR, what modes it can be used in and how it affects input lag. On some displays - so I hear - HDR can have some serious lag so just be forewarned.
Not much to add other than that. Don't know anything about Vizio displays, haven't kept up with what Sharp has been doing...I have heard good things about LG displays, but nothing specific. A cousin of mine has an enormous 4k LG 3D LED tv and I must say I was quite impressed with it. My brother in law recently picked up a 4K LG OLED, which was even more impressive.
Sorry I'm not of much help right now, but at least I could pass on that tidbit about HDR. Hopefully, someone who has been keeping up with things can chime in.

You're a brave man having small children in a room with a fancy TV. I would always worry they'd throw something and it would accidentally hit the TV & shatter the screen or knock it over. I always figured if I found myself in that situation that I'd buy some thick glass & have it bolted in front to protect it, but then I do like to over-build things. :-P

Hey, it's my old thread!
My thought would be go with the LG. I'm still enjoying mine, and I bought a somewhat smaller one for my parents that they enjoy as well.
It's a shame--and more than a little ridiculous--that Sony isn't including a 4K Blu-ray player in the PS4 "Pro," but MS is including one in the new cheep version of their Xbox One. WTF is that?
Anyhow, I haven't really checked into much of any of this. Do companies make many 4K blu-rays already? Are all blu-rays moving towards that standard, and are they usually more expensive than standard blu-rays?

In my angered state I left and went to Costco to buy the massive 75" Sharp... only to then realize that my SUV is just a bit to small for the tv to fit in the back lol....
The hunt continues today....

Nay it was the x850 which is the cheaper option.
I received my 75" tv today... holy fawk is it huge ! My couches are about 18 feet away so it's the perfect size for that range.
At first I wasn't that blown away... until I realized that by default the energy saving picture mode was enabled on all inputs... I set them to game mode and standard and holy crap the picture knocked me off my feet.
Watching some 4k vids off youtube it's absolutely stunning. Playing games is great... the colors really pop out. I think that I will be getting the xbox one s with Battlefield one bundle .... I'm curious to see how or if the HDR makes any difference in that game. Same goes with Forza and Gears 4 which I bought both.
Back to the TV... for the tiny price I paid the Sharp product is really really nice. Great value for the price.
