Getting a 65" set for our new house. Is 4k worth the extra at normal viewing distances? There are still some nice full hd 65" sets.

If you get a 4k set now you can pick up one of last years models for a bargain. Saying that I have used 4k a few times with Netflix but besides that not much at all. It depends if you want to future proof yourself.

I have a 4K set we picked up late Nov/Early Dec and am yet to find any 4K supported media to try it out. There was something on Netflix but the way the telly is set up you must receive the signal first and from what I experienced with Netflix was the telly must be in 4K first. It was like some sort of high definition inception.

Yeah have looked a bit further and there are some good 4k sets which don't cost a lot more. We're outfitting a whole house though and trying to stay within budget so every hundred counts.

Wait for the inevitable end of.financial year sales. Although ours was just a price matching sale our telly was about $2k off for a 55" Sony 4K 3d Android and cost a total of around $1450.

Picked up a Sony KDL55HX850 for $600 refurbished from an authorised repairer. A warranty job where the owner got a new TV. Guys fixed it up and I get over a $1000 off the price. Only 1080p but a beautiful panel. Have nothing in the house except the 980Ti that can push 4K content.

I'm currently trying to decide if I should get a 75inch Sony XD9400 TV to upgrade from my beloved 64 inch plasma. My biggest concern is for that kind of money I could get a 65inch OLED B6.
So the dilemma is sacrifice 10 inches of screen for OLED or go for the big boy ?

Anyone care to share their thoughts ?

Yeah, I'd get that. Nothing can beat an OLED, and if you're coming from a plasma you wouldn't want to go LCD.

They're currently rated as the best TV at the moment.

Quote:
LG's flat-screen "B" series OLED models like the OLED65B6P are priced a lot lower than the company's flaghip models, but you know what? All of LG's 2016 4K OLED TVs use the same panel and video processing. So if picture quality is your top priority, the 65" OLED65B6P stands with the best you'll see this year.

Keep reading



Or you could wait for this set by Sony but they are pricey.
