u/fearandloath8 · 7 pointsr/PS4Pro

Hey. I could write a lot about this thing but it's really simple. I bought the P series 55' TV from Amazon almost a month ago with a PS4 Pro at $650 (150 off from $800). The deal is still going on on Amazon.

So here's what's up. This TV is bloody fucking brilliant. So let me break it down a bit--

PSPRO Features: I've used a 50 inch Vizio with my PS4 for two years and I've played on other friend's very nice set-ups. I've been blown away with this. I pulled up Battlefield 1 after the recent HDR update and I was absorbed into the game after taking a break for a few months because it felt like an entirely different game--like PC level graphics and speed. Uncharted 4 is gorgeous. Games like Rainbow Six Siege have proven to me that the input lag is non-existent. Since the PSPRO can use my 5 gHz wi-fi channel as opposed to the 2.4gHz that the PS4 uses, download times are avg. 35 MB per second and upload 8-12 MB per second. It's a mix of the PRO, TV, and Internet, but my ping sits around 60 and I'm winning 1v1 firefights in Siege (not feeling cheated when it felt like I puled the trigger quickly enough). Seeing what HDR does for BF1 and Uncharted, I couldn't possibly go back to non-HDR knowing that future games are going to be using it. Boost Mode looks great as well. I pulled up Doom and holy shit that game's colors just POP. On my old 50' Vizio, I would have trouble making out players hidden in the dark or laying down with dead bodies in Rainbow 6 Siege, but this TV has really changed that. Battlefield 1 has such a clear picture of soldiers so far away that I would never have been able to make out before.

Smart Features: I was wary of "smart TVs" but this thing has sold me. I signed up for Sling TV and a bunch of other free apps, including my Netflix, Prime, and Hulu. If I hit the search button on the remote and speak any show or movie into the remote, it will find it for me for free or for some small price on some sort of service. I love that feature, so I've cut my cable and now just pay 40ish dollars for Sling, Netflix, HBO, Hulu, PrimeVideo--along with a lot of other really cool apps like the History Vault or The Great Courses Plus for a host of great lectures. Also, I no longer use my PS4 for movies etc. anymore because you can just control the volume and everything through the smart remote as well as use the voice search function to find anything across every app and service out there (even if you haven't downloaded them yet).

Visual: I can't believe this thing costs 650 (although it is 800, the deal is still going on Amazon as of the time I write this). It looks just as good as anything in the 1000 dollar range. I haven't had to change much of the factory settings, everything they say in the reviews are true. All I can really say is that there is nothing negative to say about the picture at all. Colors are true, beautiful, deep blacks, no pixelation, bright, you name it.

Sound: I can't speak much for the sound. I've got mine hooked up to a 5.1 surround system that works perfectly. The TV is able to pick up on the signal from the game or the movie and will signal my receiver to change to Dolby Digital or EXT. STEREO etc. So I don't ever have to pick up the audio remote, the TV just reads the signal and changes it for me accordingly (or how I set it to change). Same goes with HDR signal etc. The TV will pick up on the signal and change accordingly.

Hardware: I thought the remote was a joke, being a roku remote. But, as I mentioned earlier, it rules. It has a Netflix/Hulu/SlingTV button if I want to swing to one of those quickly. Has an aux input if you want to put on headphones. I can speak into it and it will find nearly any show or movie. If I lose the remote, you push a button on the TV and the remote will beep until you find it. It has 3 HDMI ports which is plenty, thanks to ARC. I use one for my PS4 PRO, one for my computer, and the ARC one to connect to my ARC HDMI in my audio receiver which makes things SO much easier.

Other stuff/Future Proofing: The TV is amazing. I can't recommend it enough for the price. You've also got antenna on there if you want basic channels for sports or news etc. For gaming, this is completely future proof. Who knows how many years, but it has all of its bases covered.

Greatest TV I've ever owned. Amazon has it on sale for 650 right now. I've got a true theatrical experience in my man cave now. Along with my PSPro, I feel like I have a whole new experience with Destiny 2, BF1, Uncharted, Doom now. If you've got a Pro, you should get this TV. And you should get the P series 55 inch.

Anyways, if you have any questions, just ask.

First step, download the Roku App on your smart phone, then pair via Blutooth to the TV (easy to do). Then, go to "expert settings" on your phone (in the Roku App) and make sure Gamma is set to 2.2 (or if you're viewing in a bright room, change it to your preference).,

To calibrate the TV, start a show to watch, then press the "*" (Star) button on the Roku remote (to the TV). You can now change the settings.

I watch most shows on Brighter, Vivid now, but I do change it up from time to time since the TV and remote make it quick and easy.


My settings as I posted in a review on BestBuy:


My Calibration settings:

Gaming (make sure "game mode" is on):

Bright game like NHL 19: Bright, Vivid.

Dark area in Witcher 3 or Battlefield 1: Dark, HDR Bright

Bright area in Witcher 3: Bright, HDR Bright

Bright area in Battlefield 1: Normal, HDR Normal (changed to Bright, Vivid recently)

Netflix Shows:

Darker show like Lost in Space or Luke Cage: Dark, HDR Bright

Brighter show like Disenchantment or Castlevania (or other 4K cartoons): Brighter, Vivid

Stranger Things: Normal, Normal, or sometimes I do Dark, Normal.


Bright 4K video: Brighter, Vivid

Normal 4K: Bright, Normal

Dark video like Sea of Thieves 4K or under the ocean: Dark, Normal


Bright, Normal (I have noticed the "Sports" picture mode doesn't look good)


If you are wanting to "set it and forget it", then just do Bright, Vivid and it works great in most modes.

Also, in Advance Picture Settings you can change the Micro Contrast. Change this setting to your liking.

Also, check reviews on Amazon or other sites to get other calibration settings. I use these because these are what I prefer and they look great.



Here is an example of additional settings provided off an Amazon review:


"Normal can produce really flushed faces unless the color setting is turned down - but also produces the sharpest most accurate picture in my opinion. Note: I believe these setting are pretty much the default settings except I turned down the color a bit.

- TV Brightness: Bright during mid day, darker at night (2 easy clicks to change) - or just keep it on Normal. * This TV is more than bright enough for bright daylight viewing. Saw some complaints that it's not very bright. It's more than plenty bright!
- Picture mode: Normal
- Audio effect: Theater (sound's not that bad - but by no means as good as a sound bar). I also have it toslink connected to an older 5.1 Denon receiver - sounds great).
- Backlight: 100
- Brightness: 50
- Contrast: 100
- Sharpness: 0
- Color: 42
- Tint: 0
- Temp: Normal
- Micro Contrast: Low
- All other setting turned to Off (noise reduction, etc.)

Love the picture coming over cable, antenna, and streaming. HDR on YouTube is stunning. I mostly use the TV to watch Cable TV. Don't have any streaming subscriptions. The picture is very clean, sharp, accurate color, deep blacks, etc. No complaints. Getting around Roku is a snap, and changing settings and all is very intuitive. So far so good, and it is the best TV I've owned. Price is great for what you get. "

u/dont_be_so_critical · 1 pointr/hometheater

Well, honestly, at this point I'd almost recommend waiting a couple of months. We'll see everyone releasing their new models, which means last years models will come down in price even more, or perhaps something that would be better all around would come out in that price range. Though I can't imagine someone besting the D series for pure gaming.

Vizio is the only company making TV's with sub-20ms input lag currently, and actually the D series is the very best performer that is currently being made by anyone at any price at 13.5ms. It also has low motion blur, which cements it's place further as the best pure gaming TV out (for games like FPS etc at least). The Vizio M and P aren't bad either at about 18ms, but they have some motion blur issues, which subtracts from its gaming performance.

The Samsung JS7000 is a pretty good game performer with 27ms lag and good motion, but it's an IPS panel, and has really bad contrast. The JU6400 is cheaper, and also a good gaming performer, but has the same issue with contrast due to being IPS (im talking less than 1000:1, while Vizio's are doing 4000:1). You'd also be playing the Samsung panel lottery, which as rtings found out means that you could end up with worse input lag depending on the panel.

If I personally, were going to buy a 55in TV right now for 1000 dollars, I'd get the Sony X810C. However, my preferences are slightly different from yours, so I dont know how much you value one thing over the other.

Here is the rtings review. They still have it as being a great gaming TV with 35ms input (which is still better than most), no blur, so good for sports, and excellent contrast at 5000:1. You're going to get better PQ than the Vizio, slightly better contrast, as well as judder free movie playback due to a 120hz panel. However, I do watch a lot of movies, so the lack of judder and improved PQ is a big thing for me.

So, it comes down to what you're after. If you have no plans to really watch movies with it, and want the best competitive gaming TV that also isnt bad at sports, the Vizio D is the one to get. It actually might be the best competitive gaming TV you can even buy currently at any price. 13ms of input lag with no/low motion blur is no joke. You'll have to make sure you have it on the right input, and all of the image processing turned off etc to get that performance (same with any TV though), but the TV is capable of it. The contrast isn't bad either, with 4300:1 static contrast even after you turn off the local dimming (everyone recommends just turning it off).

If you look at the input lag chart on rtings, you'll see several samsungs with decent input lag, but be aware that they all are either well out of your price range, or use IPS panels which gives them very bad contrast.

So there's my 2 cents. If you want the best TV for 1000 dollars, thats also pretty darn good at gaming, get the X810C. If you want the best gaming television, buy the D series.

You can get a Ryzen 5 1600 that includes a CPU cooler and a board for a good price. Choose the X370 Pro motherboard from asus if thats whats offered as a bundle from microcenter. Has overclocking headroom if you want, but not necessary.

Get yourself an R7 260x or above in my opinion as a GPU, I would tell you to get something better but GPU prices are so high right now.

Since you have the X370 Pro board now from asus, get yourself an M.2 SSD (About 120gb or more) and put windows and AutoCad on it. Then get yourself a decent 50 dollar range 1tb hard drive for long term storage.

Corsair has nice professional looking cases if you don't want the flash but don't want an ugly stock PC garbage box provided by friendly neighborhood HP and Dell pre builds.

Mouse and keyboard combo you can get real cheap on Amazon or Microcenter. That is of course unless you're looking for something like MLG grade with Cherry MX switches. I personally use an included keyboard from a pre built dell with my custom build pc to save money. Its a little loud on the key switches but its free and it does the job.

Pick up for yourself a diablotek 500 watt PSU from Microcenter, they are really cheap and surprisingly good for such a low price. They hold overclocked processors quite nicely. They aren't the best looking things out there but since you aren't getting a flashy case with windows or anything it won't matter

Since you will be shopping at microcenter for most of it I can pretty much guarantee you this build won't go close to 1800 dollars. So now you can spend all that money you saved on a sweet monitor and GPU for gaming on the side when your boss isn't looking. Remember to get extended warranties from Microcenter as they cover EVERYTHING except for theft and are the best thing ever.

Didn't do price checks or part builds for you but since I build all the time I can tell you from experience that these components won't break the bank.

As a little gift for you if your interested. You can get this TV and it has a decent screen with 4k HDR support at 120hz refresh rate. It not a monitor per say but it does a decent job at it with amazing specs. I know some casual gamers that use it for gaming:


Don't work with printers very often so I can't help you with that.

Hope this helps!

u/savage321 · 3 pointsr/blackfriday

Rtings.com is a good review site to compare specific models.
IMO, you should get a TCL Roku TV if you are on a budget. If good HDR is important to you get the P series. The P series offers one of the best smart tv interfaces out right now, 3 HDMI ports, deep black levels (not OLED good) but good for the price. If you just want a good 4k set, and don't care about high quality HDR, get the S series. They are both good values at amazon right now with out a black friday deal. I'm not sure but I doubt they will be discounted much more. OLED is top of the line in terms of picture quality. Currently OLED is only made by LG and Sony. I prefer the LG mainly for its smart tv interface but both are remarkable. Perfect black levels are among the many positive qualities of OLED. Both the 2017 OLEDs I mentioned support 4k Dolby Vision and HDR 10 (so does the TCL P series.) Just be aware of burn in with OLEDs. Might want to get a warranty for your expensive TV. Good luck!

u/I_Cant_Math · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I recently did a ton of research on tv's cause we plan to upgrade in the near future. At the moment, the most reliable brands are LG, Panasonic, Samsung, and Sony. Out of those, I found a few used tv's that match your requirements.

Samsung 32-Inch 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV $259 w/ free shipping

LG Electronics 32-Inch 1080p 60Hz LED $257.50 w/ free shipping

And if you can scrape together a little more money, you could consider this:
Samsung 32-Inch 1080p 60 Hz Smart LED HDTV $294 w/free shipping

I know those are all over $250, but they do have free shipping, and they are all very good tv's. Anyway, I hope you find something awesome! That makes me really want a good tv ;)

I'd love something nice for my son.

If you go budget go with this TCL


Has actual HDR and actual 4K the S series mentioned by other redditor uses tech that fakes 4K and HDR not true 4K or HDR. (55" 4K HDR 10)

The TCL P607 (Amazon.com) and I believe it's called TCL P605 at Best Buy are both same TV best buy version is lacking a remote with a headphone jack other wise same 4K/HDR panel. It's rated very highly by AVS Forums (Trustworthy Display Info) so does Rtings.com, and other sites as well. Best buy version is $599.99 and Amazon version is $649.99 if you want headphone jack on TV remote go Amazon but seeing as your using an X Box you already have a headphone jack on controller for night time head phone use.

Another good budget Display Panel is the Vizio M60-D1 (60" 4K HDR 10) I got this unit for $699.99 from Costco. If you go with a Vizio go with a 2016 M60-D1 or larger panel size. Any 60" and above Vizio Panels are 120Hz refresh rate (Manufacturers use wording to make refresh rates sound inflated for instance Vizio states 240 for 120Hz panels and 120 for 60Hz panels)

120Hz will help your games looks smoother and the prize between a 2016 Vizio M series 55" vs 60" isn't a lot so well worth it in case of using for an Xbox.

Lastly the Oled Panel the previous redditor mentioned is without a doubt the best panel available in USA currently for gaming use. Looks like that's not an option for you currently so the two others I listed are great budget TVs between $600-700. I can also recommend some panels for the $400-600 range or the $200-400 range if you need a different price point. True 4K and HDR with a good refresh rate aren't going to be easy to find below $500-700

u/vafler86 · 1 pointr/PS4Pro

i can try to give you some tips because i too came with almost the same question, and after reading various threads on reddit and other AV forums. i decided to get a 49 because thats the minimum size where HDR really kicks in. Also there arent any really good 43 tvs out there.

but i can try to name you some good 43 tvs, i have been on a journey while researching for a tv to buy.

decent 43 tvs:

TCL P607 & TCL S405 are a really good option and r/4k loves it, so does everybody who knows about this stuff. they are only availble in the stats, and the european TCL's arent as good as the Americans. I have read that tvs arent that bright for some people but you get alot for the money. very low input.

Samsung MU6300

Edge lit, bright and low input. It has higher rating on rtings then Nu7 series and sony X720e. tbf i really liked the Nu7000 in the stores.

I think you should read about some good tvs in 43 size and then go to your closest store and see them for yourself. like i said before, i seriously think you should upgrade to 49 and get a Sony Xe900/x900e or Xf900/x900f.


If it has to be a 43, then i would have gone for the TCL. only reason i didnt buy it was is that im not from the states. In my opinion you cant get a better tv for that size or money then a TCL. in a dark room, brightness shouldnt be a problem. Also search for TCL s405 owner thread on AV forums for experiences from the people who actually own the TV. i have told you from what i have read and it seem to be a very popular choice. good luck.

Edit: after a quick google search, it seems like TCL p607 comes in 43. defiantly go for p607 over S405

u/PresidentDavidPalmer · 1 pointr/gadgets

$1000 - The best ones for that price on the market currently is either a 50 or a 55 inch Samsung 6350 series. They cost $947 or $1040 respectively. They have great specs, even better reviews and are gorgeous in person. If you set it up correctly, its picture quality is pretty ridiculous for this price range, it makes me wonder why people ever buy way more expensive TVs.

Another option would be the just released two weeks ago 50 inch Vizio P series. It is the best cheap 4K tv on the market now. That being said, the Samsung above is better in every measurable way except for resolution. Since, there wont be much 4K content for a few more years and 4K is worthless unless you plan to sit really close to it (<5ft for a 50 inch). I would go with the Samsung and wait till my next TV to go 4K (or fingers crossed OLED).

If you want bigger, I would go with the 60 inch LG 5900 series for $929. Again not as nice as the Samsung, but a really good TV for the price. One problem though is the stand is weird and you'd need to either mount it or own something wide to put it on.

Under $300 - This is actually a booming market these days, there are a lot of good options depending on what your needs are. The best two sets available are the 32 inch LG 5600 series for $279 and the 32 inch Samsung 5000 series for $297. The one caveat is that neither of these are smart TVs, if you need smart features I would go with the $298 Vizio M322. Or you could go with the LG and buy a Chromecast or Roku.

Personally I recently bought the $348 Samsung 5500 series for my bedroom and its the nicest small TV I've ever had. It works great as a second monitor (although any of these should).

u/frankhadwildyears · 2 pointsr/PS4

Dude, absolutely upgrade from that 22". There are great deals on 32" televisions comparable to the price of a Vita. Since you are using a 22" currently, I'm guessing you are sitting fairly close to it. Upgrading will let you sit farther away and be more versatile. And if you prefer to keep sitting close, 1080p is cheap and it'll look crisper at close range over a 22". (at that size, however, if you're already sitting more than 5ft from the tv, you won't notice much change between the two)

These are just quick examples...


EDIT: So I tried to link a tv on best buy, but it isn't working. There are some sub $300 TVs with 1080p at 32". You can go cheaper at that size too with 720p. And man, you don't know how much wanted a bigger screen till you get one.

Of course, you can shop more in depth, but depending on your current tv you could end up with a higher refresh rate and response time and an overall higher quality picture. Cheaper sets often skip on speaker quality to keep price down, but you can get a soundbar that will greatly increase your audio experience on ebay for $30 or so easy. I just got 160w LG sound bar for $35 and an LG 300w with sub for $110 on ebay. Investing in better home theater gear will increase your gaming enjoyment and move/tv watching.

Given how you're buying a pricey and powerful piece of new hardware, I think the tv is highly justified, or else you're squandering some of the wow factor the PS4 is aiming to put on your screen.

The vita might have X number of games that pull your attention, but ask yourself how much time you'll be spending using it as opposed to the television. Not to mention that the tv is a one time cost whereas you have to keep buying vita games. Personally, I have a few emulators on my Galaxy S3 and that's my mobile gaming right there.

Thats my two cents, whatever you decide on, enjoy it!

u/Shanderson3 · 1 pointr/gadgets

From experience, you're not going to want a massive TV in a dorm. You might think you have a lot of room but once you get all your stuff moved in, you'll be shocked at how little space you have. Especially if you have to share the room with another person like I did. I don't know if you do or not. That being said, I currently have this TV: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN32EH5000-32-Inch-1080p-Black/dp/B0071O4ETQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407569960&sr=8-1&keywords=samsung+32+inch+1080p. I bought it probably 8 months ago and it's really nice. For gaming, it looks great and LED is a lot more reliable than LCD or Plasma. Even though Plasma supposedly offers the best picture for games. It's not the smart version, but I don't need it since I use my TV as a monitor. TV brands are important though, you definitely want Sony, Samsung, or LG. Don't settle for any others. My roommate has a 42" Sony and it's really awesome! My other roommate has a 50" Phillips and it's decent.

u/Thewonderboy94 · 1 pointr/PS4

Its a decent budget TV for gaming, but the HDR is very entry level. I would advice paying a little more and get a better TCL, or consider a Samsung TV. TCL and Samsung both have good input lag and often great contrast. I have heard Vizio is solid too, but apparently its input lag is not quite as low?

If 4K maters to you, budget LG isnt the best option, and they'll usually also have a low contrast ratio. Their OLEDs are great, but the cheaper models use WRGB pixel structure which have some problems displaying 4K picture accurately http://4k.com/news/lthree-of-lgs-4k-tvs-offer-pseudo-uhd-and-a-raw-deal-for-consumers-uh6400-uh6100-uf6800-16649/ This still applies to their newer budget models.

If TCL is something you want, this year's model will probably provide a good bit better HDR performance. There doesnt seem to be many reviews up yet, but the impressions I have read have mostly been pretty good.

Rtings just reviewed TCL's R617, so I guess S515 is going to be next.

u/Logical_Lefty · 3 pointsr/PSVR

Not OP, but I went from a "base model" PS4 on 720p to a PS4 Pro and a 4k TV and its seriously amazing. Sometimes I just switch it between 1080p and 4k resolution settings to look at it and you can definitely tell the difference. Make sure your TV supports HDR too because a lot of the graphic improvements deal with lighting. I've been playing Division 2 with the neutral light setting on and its incredible how good/accurate lights glow in dark and shine when bright.

Here's the one I have, its super cheap, but it gets the job done: https://smile.amazon.com/TCL-50S425-inch-Smart-Roku/dp/B07JK98NNQ

u/spies4 · 1 pointr/PKA

lmao def would check it out if I had the ability, sounds pretty decent.

Also I have a few more questions if you don't mind..

So I was also thinking about a certified refurbished 4k TV from Amazon, just not sure about that.

And then I found two 4k TCLs that are both 2018 models but I'm not sure the difference, can you tell what the difference is?

TCL 43S425 43 Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Roku LED TV (2018) ($250)

TCL 43S517 43-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV (2018 Model) ($300)

Probably because one is Smart Roku and the other is Roku Smart lol /s

I also forgot to ask for TCLs is the Contrast Control Zone (CCZ) worth it? The TV would be in a bright room with lots of windows and glare.

u/Stiler · 3 pointsr/Monitors

if it's in your budget getting a 55" or so 4k tv would be a better option and would allow you to enjoy things you don't get on the monitor like 4k/HDR, etc.

There is a new tv coming out this month that's making quite a bit of noise recently from AVS forums and other tech sites because of its price and what it offers:


Amazon link (#1 best seller after these recent articles):

$599 for 4k/HDR/Dolby Vision, best value for the money by a large margin.

That'd work better for movies/tv then using the S27D390H would.

Also keep in mind, 4k tv's are meant to be closer then traditional tv's. The Recommend viewing distances can be found here:

Quick release stands should be fine if you need them. As long as the lighthouses are stable anything works.

I bought the FastCap mounts... and didn't use them. They are overly obtrusive and you are much better served, imo, by installing small corner shelves or just mounting the lighthouse's included stands to the wall. It's really not worth putting up those stands. They are neat but imo not the best way to go.

For my VR room I used the following to provide unobtrusive access to the VR Pc (note the PC is in the closet and the door can be closed when in use):

Keyobard mount (I then used a Logitech keyboard and trackball with magnets to secure them when the mount is closed): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B018D5ALDY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

TV wall mount and a 4k TV (40 inch). One note here... I don't recommend this for a larger 4k tv like what I have here as you are too close to the display when using the keyboard. It's great for people to see whats going on while observing but it's harder to work with when accessing the PC out of VR. Use a smaller display.

TV and mount:

TV Mount:

I'll post pictures of the room sometime. I like what the OP did with the gym mats. Good look and protection but if you do your chaperone properly it's probably not necessary (but certainly doesn't hurt).

Lastly I have all of the equipment running on Smartthings controlled switches so I can power on the "room" (PC, display, lighthouses, etc etc) on demand. I normally turn off the PC normally and have BIOS set to power on the PC when power is restored (ie the Smartthings switch is turned on). So I can tell my Amazon Echo to "Alexa, turn on the VR Room" and everything powers on and is ready for use when I get there.

u/Shera939 · 1 pointr/4kTV

Keep your eye out for the new 5 series as well. Just to make the choice even tougher. Sorry!

From TCL: "The great features added to our S405 on our new 5 Series include Support for Dolby Vision, Wide Color Gamut, as well as picture performance improvements such as our iPQ Engine and HDR Pro Gamma, all wrapped in a great new cosmetic design!" The 49" is on Amazon, the 55" should arrive shortly.

Personally I'd go 5 series or 6 series. 6 series might be $599 at Best Buy if we get lucky and have the option of a lesser remote = cheaper price again this year. And the 5 series will be about $499.


u/king_kong0_o · 5 pointsr/xboxone

TCL is the number 3 tv maker worldwide( just started in the usa in 2015-2016), Number 1 in china for years, the make their own components in the tv so they dont have to source parts, thats why they are so much cheaper( AND THINNER) than everyone else on the market but have SUPER HIGH END features like dolby vision and roku tv guide. And for gaming the P607 and p605 are one of the best on the market test at 15ms with game mode off and 6.5ms with game mode on... its a no brainier, 4k HDR, Doly vision( which is better than hdr) 55 inch at 650$, sold...

Ya i just recently bought one, amazon has them on 2-3 month back order, but buy it now and itll be here before xbox 1 x is out.. If u look in store make sure u look for the P series only, its the performance line and has the lowest input lag..

u/mrbaker3 · 2 pointsr/4kTV

There are always tradeoffs for the cheaper vs the more expensive. It really depends on a lot of the bells and whistles and what they mean to you. HDR for instance, most likely isn't available on the $350 Westinghouse, even though it's a 4K tv. So it won't be taking full advantage of the possibilities of the Pro. It'll still give a much improved picture compared to the PS4 OG, but not the best you can get.

HDR itself is said to be even more impressive and a leap forward than 4K was to 2K, so if that's important to you, you'd need to splurge.

I'm in the same boat, looking at my first 4K and a Pro and I landed on this one. It doesn't release until June (from what TCL said), but I'm not in a hurry, and it's right at where I was hoping to spend $$ wise.

But for already released tvs, check out rtings. They have the best reviews I've come across and give reviews to individual categories like movies, games, etc. You'll see what you'd be sacrificing for price.

I am selling my 48 inch Sony Bravia 1080p LED TV.


Good as new. Have a stand, a wall mount for it as well. Great sound and picture quality. Rated very highly and was something I looked into thoroughly before spending what I did on it new.
An ideal gaming tv. Works great and is in perfect condition, just am not home nor use it often enough to justify having it for me anymore.

I have the asus monitor u posted but without the speakers. Any monitor ive ever had with speakers the speakers sucked. The monitor is great tho, I use it all the time on my pc to play games on and Im sure it will be great for the xbox.

I say if your gonna buy a monitor, buy a monitor without speakers and use the extra money to either get a decent headset or speakers. But, in my opinion when your playing on consoles my preference is playing on a tv. I sometimes play 2player games and you cant really do that on a monitor. Plus sometimes you wanna kick back on a bed or sit a few feet away from the screen and a monitor doesnt really let you do that.

u/JaredHoney · 1 pointr/xboxone


I bought this TV, or one extremely similar to it, from Amazon about two years ago. I was a little nervous when I bought it because I'd never really heard of TCL before, but I love this TV. My two college roommates and I split the cost of the TV and I bought out their shares at the end of the year so I could keep it for myself. I use it exclusively for my Xbox one and the 1080p picture is beautiful and has absolutely no video lag. After two years of pretty heavy use, I've had absolutely no problems with it and am really glad I saved a bunch of money going with this TV instead of a bigger name brand.

TLDR: In my opinion, this TV should be perfect for you, 40", 1080p, no video lag, and pretty cheap!

u/garasensei · 3 pointsr/retrogaming

We need more information! What is your budget and what screen size are you going for? VGA input is also going to be a real problem as those are mostly phased out.

I'm going to assume we're going in on the cheap here. I've heard good things about the following tv. Low input lag and good motion blurring.


43", 49", 55" all seem to be about the same spec wise from what I understand. The problem is that they are hdmi only. I'd solve this by getting an OSSC. It will take your component and vga inputs and output them as HDMI. It also seems to have full compatibility with the OSSC doubling modes including SNES, 5x modes, and even 480p x2.

>S405 | Lx3: Y | SNES: Y | Lx4/5: Y/Y | DoctorPain99 Also 480p x2 and 480i passthrough

I don't personally own this tv. If I was looking for a low budget option this is what I would do in your shoes though. The size is up to you. I'd go for as big as you can.

Edit: It may seem painful to pay almost as much as the TV for the OSSC but this really will be an awesome setup. It will even open up RGB scart to you. You could end up spending the extra money chasing the inputs you want but if I was you I'd remove it from the equation with the OSSC. Once you experience the joy of upscaled retro gaming you won't want to ever go back.

The OSSC paired with a compatible TV is pretty much plug and play. No need for complicated profiles or settings research like the Framemeister.

Yeah, I didn’t buy a warranty for it either. I bought one for my dynex which was a waste because it was perfect. But the Vizio was a total joke and their customer service was even worse. I remember them priding themselves on being an American company, but they definitely don’t meet the traditional American made standards. Never again will I buy Vizio and I have done my best to talk others out of wasting their money.

I was looking at this other American brand, TCL, but I’m pretty sure it’s the exact same thing as Vizio.

I was in the same position as you looking for a new TV. I did a lot of research and read a lot of posts and comments on r/PS4Pro. I ended up getting the 65" Samsung KS8000 and I'm loving it. This TV includes a "game mode" feature specifically made to reduce lag input when HDR is enabled, which works excellent on this TV. Also no matter what TV you end up buying, make sure the TV supports HDR10 which is true HDR.

In summary, check the specs on the TV and you'll want to look for a TV that supports 4K video w/HDR10. Hope that helps

Thanks for the heads up. After much research, I am pretty set on the TCL 55R617 TV here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079N9HDNQ?tag=rtings-tv-bs10b-20&ie=UTF8

Is the 200$ price difference worth it for the 6 series over the 5 series? What is the difference between the R615 and R617? I'm looking to be "Wowed" by the improvement in HDR content over my current Sony TV which will be migrating to the bedroom.

From what I've been reading from others, TCL quality control is much improved during the second half of the year and I already have Amazon prime so unless anyone knows of a cheaper price elsewhere (Black Friday or Cyber Monday) I think I'm going to pull the trigger on the TV linked above.

Also, I plan on wall mounting this TV and would appreciate recommendations on an inexpensive mount that will work with this TV.


u/cheezenub · 1 pointr/Roku

I was going to get TCL's new series 6 55" but after reading and seeing pics of people's new TVs, I decided to pass. Too many of them reported severe vertical banding on the screen.

I thought it was relegated to just the 55" model. I considered the 65" model, but realized that was just too large for my tastes. This TV seems to be the top of the line for ROKU based TVs. In the end I just could not take the chance. I am disabled and shipping such equipment back and forth is not too practical for me.

I went with a Sony. May not be the most current. Definently not the most expensive. But it fit my size, and the reviews were far better. I did have to get used to the new interface as it run Android TV. I've come to appreciate it.

I still have my trusty Roku 3 in the bedroom chugging away without any issues.

u/dsignori · 1 pointr/4kTV

I would say a few things:

  • You may or may not be able to see the difference on a 43 inch TV that is 1080 or 4K. It depends on how close to the TV you are.
  • 4K TVs at this range are very affordable nowadays so it makes little sense IMO to get a 1080 set, even at 43 inches.
  • Depending on the specific 4K set you are getting, any differences or improvements may or may not be present.
  • I was just mentioning in another thread that I just got this TCL / Roku one a few weeks back. It's a secondary TV for a basement wall, so I didn't need anything great there. So far it's very good for the price: TCL 43S425 43 Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Roku LED TV (2018) . It's $249 on Amazon.
  • If you have room for a larger TV, it might be wise to look for deals on larger ones, as they are out there to be had as well.

    Good luck with your decision.

I got a Samsung 40 inch which will replace my old RCA 1080 I've had since 2012. It's currently the best selling 4K set on Amazon and supports HDR as well. Plan is to sell my old TV for $150 or whatever I can get from Craigslist that way I'll end up spending only slightly under $300 on the 4K set because free Prime shipping and Amazon doesn't charge tax in my state.

Wait for TVs to go on sale, don’t sell yourself short. Easy to find a good deal. But keep in mind you get what you pay for. HDR is big when looking for a tv. Games that don’t support 4k but have HDR is a nice boost to the color depth.

If you are patient grey Thursday/Black Friday/cyber Monday always have good deals.

This t.v. Is 100 bucks off amazon right now and seems to fit your budget. It is their 4 series.
I personally have never owned a tv from this company, I usually stay with Sony, Samsung, and LG and have yet to be disappointed.

4 series.

u/4xalot · 2 pointsr/iRacing

If you're not comfortable building a system and nobody nearby to assist, you might want to go with a prebuilt system.

Example only, not sure I'd recommend this particular one.


You're looking for a reasonably modern CPU, 16GB RAM, solid state storage for iracing to live on, and a 1070 at least. This should be able to manage 60fps on triples in all except a few grandstand areas.

If you know someone nearby who can help you troubleshoot any system building issues, might save a few hundred that way. Like I mentioned, graphics cards are hard to get for MSRP right now, so this might be a bit of a struggle.

On the other hand, maybe you should consider getting a cheap ~50" 4k tv and just sitting as close to it as possible, as in almost touching it? I found this more immersive than triple 24" monitors, but you definitely don't have the ability to see cars beside you as easily. The field of view is smaller than triples, but its still much larger than a typical monitor.

I use one of these currently

previously on triples, but I prefer this ever so slightly for just driving for fun. If I was competitively racing still I would jump back on triples.

u/tilhow2reddit · 2 pointsr/technology

I have Youtube TV and I love it. Also, if you're looking for a user friendly smart TV that's not super expensive I recommend the TCL smart tv's.

They're lightweight (seriously they don't weigh much at all) so hanging them on wall is easy, they're cheap, the user interface is simple and responsive, Roku is built into it so there's no additional hardware to purchase or setup.

u/somerandomguy02 · 1 pointr/htpc

I figured this out from when I was researching TVs. A true 120Hz tv can give true 24fps because 120/24=5. A 60Hz tv will have to do some 3:2 pulldown magic because 60/24=2.5. That's where you get your judder. That's why you're seeing some semi conflicting and/or confusion about being able to transmit/receive/play 24fps.

Now you have to be careful because some TVs will be advertised as 120Hz Motionsense or 120Hz Truemotion, etc. That's a 60Hz tv with software magic to give an effective 120Hz from what I understand. And actual refresh rates aren't always easy to find for all TVs.

Side note Edit: I ended up with this one and absolutely love it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01E69WHP6?tag=rtings-tv-bs10b-20&ie=UTF8

I'd seriously consider 4k even if you don't have any 4k media.

Edit 2: Prime example of what I was talking about with the refresh rate. Look at the refresh rate spec. "120CMR (Effective)". 60Hz tv with "Clear Motion Rate" to give a 120Hz effective rate. The true 120Hz tvs we're too pricey for me. I experience no judder when playing 24fps media. I have the motion rate stuff turned either off or way down depending on what I'm watching. It gives sitcoms a "soap opera" look.

The best bang for your buck when it comes to 4k HD tv's is the TCL Roku TV, https://www.bestbuy.com/site/tcl-55-class-54-6-diag--led-2160p-smart-4k-ultra-hd-tv-roku-tv/5878703.p?skuId=5878703
which is a shockingly cheap $370. You can see a review for it at https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/tcl/s-series-4k-2017-s405. There's a 49" variant too on amazon, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MYGISTO/ref=twister_B071J9GQP8?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 for $330.

You can get a similar tv with better picture quality for $600 https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/tcl/p-series-2017-p607

If you want to go better than that, then it's got to be the LG OLED tv's (that tim is always raving about) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073K3LPGF?tag=rtings-tv-bs10b-20&ie=UTF8 but the cost is $1600. I don't really think it's worth it to buy tv's between the picture quality of the $600 TCL p607 and the LG OLED's because the TCL P607 is such a great deal, and that it isn't until you get to OLED that you can see a noticable "jump" in picture quality.

looking to buy a new TV. I'm settled on 55 in LED 4k. I want to spend $500 - $1000. It needs to last me a long time as I don't plan on upgrading for a while. Last one I bought was a 42 in plasma about 5-6 years ago and its still fine never had any issues.

Is black friday probably the best time to buy? Cyber monday? I'm hoping to find the best deal on amazon since i have some points on there i was saving. I originally was looking at this:TCL 55S405 55-Inch because of the price and reviews. but after looking at some other sites I was leaning more towards one of these through Amazon Warehouse:

u/Moggles1987 · 1 pointr/PS4

I just purchased this TCL tv and it's fantastic.

Check out all the different reviews around the internet about it. Their new models just dropped so this particular set has seen a big drop in price. The Roku format is great too.

But man oh man. That sweet 4K HDR is great.
Do you have a pro?

u/ForTheB0r3d · 1 pointr/4kTV

This may not be as relevant but I figured I'd chime in. Last year I was just shy of pulling the trigger on a 65 inch 850D, which was (I believe) around $1800 pre black-friday. On BF it dropped to $1300 for a $500 savings. I figured maybe I should wait until right before the superbowl because TV's go on crazy sales then too and if it went down to the $1300 price again, I'd buy it.

So around January 20th 2017 I check prices again and it was actually only dropped to $1500 for a $200 savings. I was pissed. But in retrospect I'm glad I waited. Now, I'm keeping my eyes on the XBR65X900E, which is way better in comparison especially since the new systems will support 4k gaming.

Anyhow, the current price of the XBR65X900E (on BestBuy) is $1800 (dropped from $2500) for a $700 savings (According to the site). But since you saw it at $2k 2 months ago, and they are shaving $300 off now, I'd wager a guess that it will drop to $1500 for black friday for a $500 savings from the price you saw it at....

This may help you: Check out the price chart on camel camel camel

I know it only gives you AMAZON prices; however, its a good indication of where the TV started out at ($2500) and price drop intervals. It looks like every 3 months now the TV will drop in price so Black Friday should be your best bet.

The next one up I believe was the big end LG OLED.
But, forza and gears look brilliant on this tv.
Plus 4K movies are amazing!

The best 4k TV right now is TCL 49S405 49-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV (2017 Model) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MYGISTO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_-RWaAb02VKAGN It has all the features you need (4k,120hz,HDR). It's a fantastic TV and it's really affordable. I'd recommend this anything over a samsung.

u/Lynch47 · 4 pointsr/buildapc

Looking to buy a 43" 4K TV for my bedroom soon and want one that doubles as an occasional monitor when I want to step away from 1080 and see the visuals pop. Does anyone have any recommendations? I've been looking at this TCL tv for a little bit but am unsure that 1) it'll be good for gaming, and 2) if 43" is too small for 4K? Any recommendations are appreciated but I'm definitely looking for the value/budget TVs rather than the top of the line stuff.

I have the 60" version of this TV and love it. One criticism is that if you are sitting to the side the color can appear washed out, but sitting straight in front of the TV it looks great.

I linked the 40" version if that's the size you're after. It also has HDR.

Since LEDs don't produce the crappy soap opera motion (or it might be toggle-able) this is probably perfect for you.

If you go with this one, here's a little sidenote from the reviews.

"Picture out the box = AWFUL... After calbration = AMAZING

When I first took it out of the box and powered it on I was shocked at the picture. It looked awful UNTIL I read the other reviews about it being properly calibrated. So after tinkering around for what seemed hours I managed to get these setting based on Football and regular TV viewing:

Mode: Movie

Backlight: 18

Contrast: 80

Brightness: 40

Sharpness: 20

Color: 80

Tint: G/R 58/44

Under advanced setting;

Dynamic Contrast: Medium
Black Tone: Darker

Picture tone: Cool
Film Mode: Off

Sound Mode: Movie"

I just picked up a nice Samsung 4k for $436 and per-ordered the ps4 pro. Pretty good deal on a 40 inch hdr 4k. I will mount it with the Freedom Arm HD and it will just float above my pc monitor.



u/wendys182254877 · 1 pointr/PS4Pro

What kind of budget are you working with?

Rtings reviewed that TV, and while the 4k is fine, the HDR isn't impressive at all.

> HDR is average and the lack of a wide color gamut, low HDR peak brightness, and lack of local dimming doesn't make HDR content stand out.


I recommend reading the whole review.

I would recommend this TCL R617 as it has great HDR and will give you the best value for your money.

Nice rig!! Go with a big TV!!!

Something like THIS You totally want HDCP 2.2 so make sure you're getting a TV that will support it.

Happy 4k gaming!!

u/CosmonautLaika · 4 pointsr/PS4Pro

It is not bad but does not have local dimming for HDR.


If you went down to the 55" you could get the 6 series which is better image quality for $650



But if the larger size is more important than HDR to you, that's fine too.

Checking out RTings.com for good reviews.

edit - at that price point, I would also consider the Vizio E Series 2018 - 65" for $700-$730 (E65-F1)

I actually ended up getting this TV: http://www.amazon.com/TCL-LE40FHDE3010-40-Inch-1080p-Black/dp/B00BP5N498/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408472796&sr=8-1&keywords=tcl+40+inch+tv , when it was on sale for $250. Really nice contrast, and 1080p, but I am still having trouble finding the perfect settings, and the base is quite cheap. Overall I am happy with it, and would recommend it if you can find it around that price.

u/Darius2301 · 1 pointr/PS4Pro

Yes it really is. If you're looking for a very reasonably priced TV that supports 4k and HDR, get one of these:


I have one and I also have a much more expensive 4k, HDR TV. I can't say that the TCL looks exactly as good as the more expensive TV, but it does look pretty darn good.

u/fragydig529 · 1 pointr/mildlyinfuriating

His TV is like this one, not sure if this is the exact model number he has But it’s close

Here is mine

You can see the top link, that TV is clearly made to make people believe it is better than what’s in the box. Your regular consumer is going to see 4K and think it’s amazing without looking into the specs to much.

u/deeveeance · 1 pointr/hometheater

For gaming, refresh rates mean how smoothly the game is presented, and how many times the screen/Xbox "refresh" the scenes per second. The higher the number, the smoother the image. Each one, monitor and source, affects one another, so if your TV is 60Hz and say you have a glorious PC dishing out 120 FPS (frames per second) on a game, you're stuck at 60 FPS, and vice versa.

Since you're playing on console (Xbox), you won't really be taking advantage of anything over 30 FPS (frames per second) on 1080p. That still is NOT saying a 120/240 Hz TV isn't a solid investment! Sports, action movies and fast scenes will all look better if you set up the TV properly.

If budget is your main concern, try hopping around your local Best Buy/Electronics stores and usually enough (bought all my friend's TV's this way) there is a "Display Model," "Refurbished" or "Open Box" TV available that is significantly reduced in price.

A few years back I got my parent's 52" 1080p (can't remember the model) brand new, just a missing manual, for about 30% off only because it was returned at the near end of the return period, and it wasn't being sold at the store anymore (BB).

Although I can't really recommend anything (on mobile), I would take a look at stores, and stick close to brand names like Sony, Samsung, Panasonic and the like... Anything else is pretty much asking for trouble. You pay a bit more, BUT usually have a better warranty/support service.

Hope this helps. Also, for the budget you have, anything higher than 120Hz (Native) is going to be a bit more.

Make a short story shorter, I got a Xbox One X. I've been looking at a few TVs and the one that has stood out the most to me for the price is "TCL 55P607 55-Inch 4k Dolby Vision HDR Roku Smart" A link to the post will be at the bottom for Amazon($679) and Bestbuy($599). So to the questions: Right now this TV is $599 at Bestbuy, is this the best 4k HDR tv for the price? What is the difference between "Dolby Vision HDR" and "HDR 10"? Does the Xbox One X support DolbyV HDR and or would it just work like it's HDR 10? I feel like i'm missing something, is there anything else I should know?



u/slayerming2 · 1 pointr/TVadvice

That looks really impressive, 4k and has hdr. Is there any catch? Do you own it? Was looking for only 1080p, but this is an impressive TV.

Seriously read professional reviews, it's the best 4k/HDR TV you can get under 1k, and Roku is the best smart tv software out there. All the other ones, Sony, Samsung, are becoming increasing riddled with ADs and spying BS.

u/Sheparddddd · 2 pointsr/Xbox_One_X

ok i think im gonna go with this TCL that /u/ZeroCorpse linked just the 49 inch version i think because 55 seems massive (but the best deal).

then eventually get a tv that supports HDMI 2.1.


u/RenegadeMinds · 3 pointsr/canada

Hey, I'm on board with that.

Also to do my job properly, I need to maintain good mental health and hygiene, which consists of several expensive hobbies, generous amounts of beer, the odd movie or so - on a large screen TV (still trying to get this one), dinner out every now and then, the odd vacation, a bigger house, a better and roomier vehicle, etc. etc.

Companies get to count equipment maintenance as an expense, so why shouldn't people get to do the same?

No - I'm not being facetious.

The fact is that business entities get incredible advantages that regular people don't.

If Bell gets to count maintenance fees as expenses, why can't regular people count aspirin and apples as a maintenance expense?

The truth is that there are no good reasons. The government massively favours the well-being of businesses over people. (And it doesn't matter who is in power.)

u/gmaxter · 3 pointsr/hometheater

$1500 is the minimum it's been on Amazon according to CamelCamelCamel.

I pulled the trigger on the 65" KS8000 over the weekend (bought it at Best Buy) and am very happy with it so far. My credit card offers 90 day price protection, so if I find a lower price within that timeframe (however unlikely) I can go through them and get the lower price.

Many credit cards offer that feature - just something to be aware of.

In the same boat as you OP. Amazon has a 40" one from TCL, a brand I'm unfamiliar with, for $270 that I'm thinking about purchasing. If you have a PS4 Pro and want to do 4k there is this 43" one for $350.

Anyone have opinions on TCL?

edit: After glancing around for like two minutes on this sub it seems like TCL certainly won't be as high quality as some of the more expense brand names, but they still produce a pretty solid product for the price.

u/theseekerofbacon · 0 pointsr/pics

I bought this one about three months ago.


After figuring out that you need a VGA/DVI cable to properly use the TV with a computer, it ended up being a very wonderful purchase.

There are clearly better TVs out there, but this one was perfect for me while on a budget.

u/wetdirt28 · 3 pointsr/PS4

Save up a few hundred more dollars and go with the TCL 55” 6 series. True HDR10 and an insane amount of bang for your buck. I have a 55” and a 65” 6 series and couldn’t be happier with my purchases.

You do, however, run a bit of a risk with TCL panels as they are infamous for having some pretty noticeable imperfections if you’re unlucky. My 55” is perfect, but there is some banding on my 65” that is fairly apparent when the screen gets bright, but still isn’t that noticeable when watching content.


u/WaidWilson · 2 pointsr/4kTV

I haven’t seen it drop lower than $1299, no, but if you’re willing to give amazon warehouse deals a chance they’ve got the 65” X900E for $1275, I personally bought my 900E from them and it arrived brand new, the box had just been removed. Plus their customer support is the best.

I would 100% buy a 65” 900E over a 55” 900F.

u/svirbt · 1 pointr/hometheater

120 hz doesnt actually do anything for you as everything is shot and will be fed to your tv at 60hz. Other people please correct me as I may be incorrect, but from what I remember, pretty much every tv sub $1k will be LED edge lit LCD. For gaming and movies for your budget (and being a huge Sony fan) if you have the space get the Sony XBR55x810c. Don't worry, it will seem big for a bit then you will settle into it. Same thing when I got my 55" Panny plasma!

u/Z1KK1 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I mean the first TV is complete shit and the second TV is the most shit TV LG sells thats 4k and HDR.

It seems you want the biggest screen for least amount of money and dont really care about spec.

The Sony x900e is the set to buy if you arent going for oled.

65" is $1500


If you just want to spend $1000 then youre better off buying it in a 55" size



Best lighting system (full array) after oled technology, very good peak brightness for HDR (1billion colors v 18million, to see top end of these colors you need lots of brightness, and control over zones, the full array part, edge like you are looking at dont go as bright nor break screen down into controllable zones)

u/WJKramer · 2 pointsr/appletv

Cool. I hadn't noticed it yet. But to answer your question, your tv will need to support the referenced HDR format. I just bought a TCL of Amazon that supports both.

u/Ohsighrus · 16 pointsr/xboxone

The Xbox One subreddit isn't very helpful here due to the moderation team deleting these threads. You'll have more luck of at /r/4kTV/ since your thread is going to get deleted. With a 4K TV, you want low input lag which on 4K tvs is hard to find. The current champion was released on 5/1/2018 which is the TCL 6 Series 4K TV. It boasts 12-14ms input where other brands are in the high 40+ms range. The TCL 6 series TV is nearly impossible to get right now, so expect 2-4 weeks shipping. You can get the 65" for $999, the 55" is $650.

These TVs are a hit or miss brand. Some people run into issues with vertical lines or dead pixels on arrival. If you run into this, keep the TV and use it until they can get you a replacement then send the old one in the other box back OR pick yours up from Best Buy and return it to store there.

When I ordered mine, Best Buy delayed my shipping 3 times but gave me $100 gift card. On the 3rd delay I canceled my order and ordered from Amazon. I paid $30 for next day air but the package arrived 3 days late. Amazon rep was super unhelpful and gave me a ton of attitude. A manager got involved and gave me $200 off the TV and refunded my $30 shipping.

Better deal. Then go buy a roku 3 and make it a smart TV. Or pair with a Chromecast.

If not that, the TCL R617 55" is also a Killer Value

$622 on Amazon

Thanks for looking I appreciate it I was looking too and found this one on amazon what do you think?

u/hookawitweed · 1 pointr/hometheater

Amazon put it up for 1500, Best buy said they will price match puts it up for 1499 -> Amazon current price https://www.amazon.com/Sony-XBR55X900E-55-Inch-Ultra-Smart/dp/B01MZF81NS?th=1

Yes but this tv is also really good for input lag. And it's 4k

TCL 43S425 43 Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Roku LED TV (2018) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DK5PZFY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Q2j4DbPVZRF54

TCL looks to have an pretty nice line up on their P series for 2017. The specs are killer for the price points. Real hdr, full array local dimming something like 72 zones.


I think amazon recently had the 55" on pre order for like $600. 50" will be $500 when it release later this year.
If you are trying to get a huge 4k set for your price range, no way.


you can keep an eye on reviews, it should release this month

u/HagPuppy89 · 1 pointr/xboxone

As far as I’m aware, no true HDR exists on monitors atm. Only truly exists on 4k TVs (I could be wrong)

You could look at the TCL P670:
Amazon’s Listing for P670
RTings lists it as a good gaming option

My roommate and I bought this Samsung TV last year for our dorm room (yes, we had two TV's) and it was great. I paid $232.00 for it. Check out Amazon's used TV's under their Warehouse Deals, as they are usually just repackaged and have nothing wrong with it. No matter what TV you get I would highly recommend keeping the box and packaging it comes with as it will make transporting it a breeze.

I have a 2018 Tcl/Roku 43" and its working flawless & was out of box with a 4k stick/remote. Have you updated tv software? also you can update your remotes IR profiles. TCL 43S425 43 Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Roku LED TV (2018)

This is the TV: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KVLT08G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1#productDetails

Looks like you're right, only optical out! What a bummer. My last TV had both, I guess I never realized this isn't the norm anymore.

Oh well, good excuse to buy a DAC!

Do you think the Modi would be overkill (http://schiit.com/products/modi) with this amp? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F0H8TOC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/sk9592 · 1 pointr/hometheater

That is really up to you.

IMO 55-inches will look fine at 9 feet. 65-inches will look a bit more immersive, but how much that's worth it up to you. It is 40% more screen area than a 55-inch panel.

The 55-inch TCL 6-series is currently $650. The Best Buy version is $50 cheaper but comes with a worse remote. The 65-inch is close to $1000.

I don't know why you're bothering with the Vizio M series. It's the same price and not as good.

If you feel like spending more, then the Vizio P series is worth the upgrade. It is $200 more than the TCL 6-series at each size.

u/SeafoodDuder · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Probably this 40" 4k Samsung for $489.

Check out the review from my favorite TV reviews site, Rtings. Trust it more than any other site.

u/r35h93 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Is it possible you can still return/exchange the tv? If so this or this are good bets for a tv with true HDR at a similar price.

u/Lazerpop · 1 pointr/4kTV

Oh! I think I got it. So the TCL I'm thinking of doesn't have the nicest HDR and I totally accept that I won't get the most amazing picture ever for $300. But simply having the television on in the daytime near a window won't render it impossible to watch, yeah?

edit -- Just another thought... it seems like to stay within this size range but get a noticible picture bump, I would have to spend at least $100 more, right? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MYGISTO/

u/zuzulemon · 5 pointsr/xboxone

because it still looks great on a 1080p tv? i don't have a 4K tv yet but i have my eye on this hopefully it's still on sale within the next two weeks.

u/De5tr0yer · 1 pointr/PS4

The Samsung KU6300 is pretty good for that price range.


Edit: actually it's cheaper in terms of USD to Euros

u/homeboi808 · 1 pointr/hometheater

It's a really good tv. At 6ft I would say yes, 55" is a good size for that distance. At 8ft, I would get the 65" Sony X900E for $2300. I have a 58" plasma that I sit 8ft from, 16x9 is really good, but letterboxed movies can seem a tad small, so emphasized a bit for 55".

u/Arnoldslehrling · 1 pointr/PS4

Seeing as you're just about the straightest shooting TV expert I've ever come across, I must ask you one last question and take advantage of this opportunity (sorry). I understand that in a 32inch tv you will not see much difference between 720p and 1080p, however due to room constraints I will be sitting very close to my TV, so I do feel I may benefit from having 1080p with all games being native 1080p (don't quote me on that).

After doing some research and sifting through that excellent display lag database, I have found the LG LN5300. It comes in a 32 inch, is 60hz and full hd 1080p and from what I can see does not have any Smart TV features. On Amazon I can pick it up for about $360 including shipping. The 42" version also has a 28ms input lag rating, which I'm assuming will not be different for the 32" version.

TL;DR: is the LG LN5300 32" 60hz 1080p with 28ms input lag a good ps4 TV? Link LG LN5300 Amazon

u/RadiumNation · 1 pointr/Televisions

What about this?


Is it worth the price jump from the vizeo? My local best buy has it for 600

I did notice the phillips does not seem to support hdr

u/Lore_Walker_Cho · 1 pointr/PrimeDay2016

Which model? Here's the Amazon one and Here's the Best Buy one. They're both the same model (UN55KU6300FXZA), aren't they? Sorry, I'm confused!

u/remembertosmilebot · 5 pointsr/hometheater

Did you know Amazon will donate a portion of every purchase if you shop by going to smile.amazon.com instead? Over $50,000,000 has been raised for charity - all you need to do is change the URL!

Here are your smile-ified links:

1080p upscaling has improved quite a bit from the early days. You're hard-pressed to find a 4K TV that doesn't do it well.

1080p displays, at least as far as TVs go, aren't a very great market to stay in. Less and less are being developed, especially good ones, and 4K televisions can be found for a great price.

If you'd like a couple recommendations:

TCL S425 43" - $249 (RTings review) (50" is $50 more, 55" is $100 more)

Its input lag is respectable. Not the fanciest TV, but it would fit your needs well while not mutilating your wallet.

Vizio P-Series 55" - $699 (RTings review)

When compared to the aforementioned TCL, the input lag isn't better, but you do get a lot more features packed into this TV than you would the TCL.

u/Dedwik · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Id go with the sony, much better brand cost a little more but better product. also here is a cheaper price same tv its just from 2015

u/Ruairi101 · 1 pointr/TVadvice

I went with this Sony 48" TV and I'm really happy with it. It's checked all my gaming boxes and the built-in speakers are surprisingly decent; we watched the new Star Wars on it and it actually sounded really good.

u/jhc1415 · 1 pointr/todayilearned

My personal favorite is this TV. Even the Q/A section is hilarious.

u/deja_booboo · 2 pointsr/buildapcforme

A 34" ultra-wide monitor would be awesome for both gaming and productivity, but they run ~$1000-ish. With a wide monitor, you wouldn't have to worry about bezels getting in the way, and you can have 2-3 programs open at the same time, side by side, for productivity. You can even use a $600-ish 40" 4k TV, but you will be capped at 60 Hz refresh rate, unlike the ROG Swift and Acer Predator x34 at 100Hz.

u/poopyheadthrowaway · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

There are some good 4K TVs, like this one (it was posted on this subreddit a while back via Costco, although I don't think they sell it anymore).

u/drnick5 · 2 pointsr/hometheater

when looking for a TV for an average viewer, which I'd say is 90% of people (not a videophile). I recommend A) buy a brand you've heard of, Samsung, Vizio, LG, Panasonic, Sony, etc. don't get a Sanyo, Dynex or some other off brand.

B) Get the largest TV you can get in your budget. For most people, they will enjoy a 50" TV more than a slightly better looking 40" TV.

Here are some TV's that should work, all are under $700: The vizio has the most HDMi inputs out of these 3, but you can always buy an HDMI switch box if you have a ton of devices.

Vizio 55" LED
Samsung 55 LED
LG 55" LED

Samsung UN40KU6300 40-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2016 Model) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DUTL4OI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_EEGuxbDSW28XH

I got this HDTV which is of very similar quality. It has a beautiful picture and only 19 ms of input delay. 4k @ 60FPS @ 4:4:4

u/lamanna99 · 1 pointr/hometheater

what i would personally do: Bowers and wilkins 685 from bestbuy with the cash. & spend the rest on additional amazon gift cards. Sony 900e is currently 1200 on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Sony-XBR55X900E-55-Inch-Ultra-Smart/dp/B01MUG21R7/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1500185495&sr=8-1&keywords=55+sony+900e

43 inch 4K tv has Roku built in. I have a 32 inch 1080p one by the same brand and I love it.

u/bradkeys · 2 pointsr/Televisions

$1298 on amazon.ca now. Same price at Best Buy.

u/carld135 · -1 pointsr/4kTV

to be honest, nah, it's a mediocre tv, but here's what i'd recommend

TCL S517 (49")

u/chrismetalrock · 3 pointsr/4kTV

this is available at a few locations now for that price (amazon, best buy)

u/ArchDucky · 2 pointsr/reddeadredemption

This is the best TV for the money. Hands down.

u/Citizen_of_Atlantis · 1 pointr/xboxone

I beg to differ

I bought the 55" version of this set a few weeks ago and it's been awesome. HDR10 included.

u/BAM1789 · 1 pointr/xboxone

Well.. Vizio 55" M-Series and
Samsung UN55KU6300 are both HDR capable and well under $1k.
